Note: this social talk onTSC13 is in Dutch.
One of the most social elements of life is music. It’s food for thought, fuelling discussions (or even debates) and part of almost everyones life. We love to share our music and discuss taste. When we visit music festivals we share pictures, discover new artists and meet new friends. Emerging technolies like Spotify, Grooveshark and Deezer on top of existing channels like YouTube and Apple’s iTunes help us to develop our taste and fine tune where and when to listen to who.
Music and it’s industry have been moving forward since ancient history but the last decades have seen some major changes. Perhaps we may even state disruptive changes. The music carriers evolved, the music business changed and from artist to label: everybody has to grow into new roles.
At TSC13 we dive into this new patterns about music and it’s social components. How are business models influenced by social media and what about the war over piracy? Who are the victims and what are the opportunities for all parties in the music field.
We invited three different roles with different needs. What did they see? How do they adept and embrace this new challenges? Find out at the Social Talk about Music.
- Jesse Limmen, organiser of the Dutch festival Magneetfestival which leans heavily on social media (to be performing artists are even voted via social media) embraces all these new forms to the max. How does he use social media to differentiate amongst the heavy competition in (music) events.
- Andy Zondervan of BUMA/STEMRA, the Dutch collecting society for composers and music publishers has to cope with this new landscape too. What is his view on the fragmentation of the landscape and how does he cope with piracy?
- Niels Aalberts of Eerste Hulp Bij Plaatopnamen (First Aid with Recording Records) helps (starting) artists with getting around in the music industry (besides having his own record label with i.e. Kyteman). In which ways does he use all new online means to kickstart new and arrived artists.
Which interests do they share? Where do they collide? Find out in the panel discussion about music & social media at the Social Talk Music at #TSC13, 14 Feb, Amsterdam.
