DMT 192: Thrilling Rights, Fair Digital Deals Declaration, unRadio, Soundwave, Soundcloud, Pono

This week on Digital Music Trends it was a real pleasure to welcome Eric MacKay (My Media Insider), Andrew Dubber (Music Tech Fest), Paul Fakler (Arent Fox LLP) and Aidan Sliney (Soundwave).

We start off the show by discussing the latest news around the review of the ASCP and BMI consent decrees by the US Department of Justice. The DOJ is now said to be looking into whether Sony/ATV, UMPG and ASCAP “coordinated” their negotiations with Pandora and in the meantime Sony/ATV’s Chairman is threatening to pull out of ASCAP and BMI completely, but is that actually feasible for the publisher?

We also discuss the “Fair Digital Deals Declaration” by the Worldwide Independent Network, Rhapsody’s unRadio product, SoundCloud’s rumoured equity deal with the majors and PONO gets a new CEO and new back-end service provider.

During the show I also chat with the CTO of Soundwave Aidan Sliney and he demonstrates the brand new version of the app which includes a messaging service.


Finally don’t forget to go check out the Music Tech Fest website for news on the event (musictechfest.org) and the My Media Insider website for Eric’s latest news (mymediainsider.com).

I really hope you enjoy the show, have a great week and ‘till next time!

Ep.8: Michela Magas, Stromatolite & Music Tech Fest – DMT 1-2-1

This week on the DMT 1-2-1 show Michela Magas, co-founder of Stromatolite and founder of Music Tech Fest.
Stromatolite is a design research lab started in 2000. The company was involved with iTunes in the early days, worked on concepts with a number of brands then moved to academic research-based projects for innovation primarily in the music space. We talk about the importance of research and how sometimes business models emerge as a new technology gains mass adoption in ways that were not foreseeable before.
Stromatolite has been working with a variety of companies including CUEsongs and has generated a spin-off in the form of Sonaris Systems which is an audio analysis tool that helps match a specific part of a piece of music with a similar section of another track – based on musical phrases rather than an entire song.
We also talk about Music Tech Fest which started in 2012 as a way to bring together technology, music, industry and consumers in a festival of music ideas. Music Tech Fest takes place in London between the 17th to the 19th of May and is free to attend, get your free ticket on musictechefest.eventbrite.co.uk/.
