Most of #artists and #Producers as well as #Musicians will not get ANY royalties next year from #Spotify.
I personally understand the background but can't agree. If you want to keep your topline growing or at least stay at the same level and feed so-called business "elite" please use other ways to do this. So many talents are there below this 1000-streams threshold!

Hey #UKagents & #producers, if you’re looking for a light-murder-mystery (Christie/Wodehouse vibe w/new twists on the usual murder-mystery tropes) the fab showreel for my award-winning HAWKWOOD pilot table-read @SpotlightUK is ready to 👀! #MurderMystery #comedy #pilot #Neurodivergent #tvwriter #LGBQcharacters #tv #devilishlyhandsome #detective https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=NavCklSn7Eo
Hi again #music #producers! I've been inside a recording studio a few times, and the producer's sound booth was set up where you had to stand in front of the mic rather than sit. Is this common in recording studios, and if so, why? My home sound booth is a closet where you can't fit a chair, and standing for so long makes my entire body start aching after a while. I was recording a podcast today, and after about 30 minutes I had to stop.
Hi #music #producers! Any way I can send midi data from one DAW on one computer to a different DAW on another computer? I like Garage Band's instruments, but I don't like the midi editor nor the way GB is laid out, and I also prefer using Reaper on Windows. It would also be nice if this tool could send audio back to my Windows PC, but I don't have to have that; I'm fine with just bouncing audio. I'm aware this is probably against Apple's TOS, so I'm not gonna do anything commercial with this.
Get a killer remix of your song by our pro producers. You can suggest your preferred style or just let our experts run loose all over your track. Offer it as an additional track on your EP, or as a free bonus download for your fans.

What's the best way to find collaborators (musicians/singers/remixers etc) for songs on the Fediverse?
Are there any hashtags you had luck with, do you message people and directly ask them, or anything else?
@wampusmm This is a cool idea!
It does feel like the system is stacked against us small time #producers trying to turn our lifelong hobby into a sustainable business.
I am no longer pursuing income. For me it is more about increasing my skills and enjoying the journey more.
I will keep watching your space though as it is very interesting to me.
I don't want to get rich, I just don't want to feel like a deadbeat because this is where I choose to spend my energy.

How much #Music #AI is really enough?
I like #MusicTechnology but why do we need all that stuff in these crazy scales? New music generator can generate more than billion soundtracks. Understandable from the tech startup point of view but currently 2 tracks a second are being released on Spotify.
BTW Loudly is a useful tool though ✌️

Philly is home to a wealth of #artists, #musicians, #producers, #filmmakers, #performers and #business #owners, many of whom are part of the #LGBTQ+ #community. Now, these #creators have a welcoming, #stateoftheart #productionstudio in #GroundFloorStudios, which opened on Oct. 23.
This is insanely cool, a Lisp musical composition DAW.
OMN is designed as a scripting language for music. It’s not about sounds themselves, it is about their control and organisation in a musical composition. As a linear script rather than a graphic stave, musical events can be transformed, extended, reorganised by powerful computer algorithms.

#WIPWednesday pg from the “The Long Shadows”, the 2nd “episode” of my HAWKWOOD pilot (light-comedy-Brit murder-mystery) that I did a table-read for in London last Oct (it went great but couldn’t get UK agents & prods to come, so everyone suggested writing a 2nd ep & go back to do another table-read!🤞) #Hawkwood #comedy #murdermystery #pilot #Wodehouse meets #agathachristie vibe #devilishlyhandsome #detective #1950s #Cotswolds #LGBQcharacters #neurodivergent #writer seeking #UKagents #producers
One of the single most impactful climate emergency changes: Allowing front-yard and driveway businesses.
This would make neighborhoods walkable over night. New jobs in local places. Cafes, grocery shops, repair clinics, tool libraries, arcades, and beyond - right on your street.
Destroying oil demand, commutes, and car dependency over night.
This policy change can happen in as little as 3 sentences, according to Hazel Borys and Strong Towns. pHow can we make this happen everywhere?
Check out the full video, "Why Did We Make Front Yard Businesses Illegal?", which shows some awesome examples and gets into what we can do today — from About Here, Urbanarium, and Uytae Lee.
And share and boost to get people talking about this. This is one of the first and most important changes we can make, for climate emergency transitions. From a path dependency standpoint, it needs to happen first too -- making what we can walkable and low energy to start, and then seeing what we need.

They don't "take" content from news #producers. They show an #extract - a #snippet, maybe just a #headline - with a #link back to the original news site for people to follow. This is classic fair use under #copyright; FB etc don't get a ton of value out of it. The news sites get #traffic - lots of it - to try to monetize.
If FB etc were copying articles wholesale, *that* could kill the news sites - but it would also be a blatant violation of copyright. It isn't happening.

We’ve now past 110 days of the 2023 #WritersGuildofAmerica (#WGA) #Strike, a milestone that now makes it the third longest running #WritersStrike in #history and has finally brought the #AllianceofMotionPictureandTelevision #Producers (AMPTP) back to a #negotiating #table after months of a near #standoff
AI Strikes Actors and Writers!
In this Boles.tv live stream highlight, David Boles explains why the current Writers and Actors strike is really only mostly about the role AI will play in society. The crying in the universities has only just begun!
@oldmanmike Sometimes I get sad about the state of the industry cause there’s a lot to be said about how #musicians and #producers get credited and paid with streaming platforms. But as far as the #music itself, we’re in a time where there’s a lot more variety than before, and it’s so much easier to get songs out there as an #indie artist through different platforms.
I started a blog about the joys of the #creativeprocess #creativity #writing #artists, likely to foray into the specialist subject of #audiodocumentary #podcast. First post: on the lonesomeness of creation, particularly for #BAME #BIPOC #audio #film #producers. https://themakingofnow.wordpress.com/2023/07/07/creation-is-a-lonesome-pursuit/

NEW ANALYSIS: The approval for the #UK's new Cumbria coal mine makes little sense.
The assumption the mine will meet demand from the steel industry runs counter to leading steel firms attempts to deploy new clean production technologies.
Little of the new coal will be used by UK steelmakers, who are making it clear they want government support to transition away from coal in order to remain competitive.
If the UK government wants to maintain a domestic primary steelmaking capacity, it will need to provide financial support to the major producers to transition, undermining the rationale for the mine’s approval.
It already seems clear that little of the coal from the new #Cumbria mine will be used by the UK steel industry.
But if the government moves to support the steel sector’s transition away from coal – as #Europe is already doing – then approval for the new coal mine makes even less sense.

I'm seeing the calls to get off mastodon.social, so trying to figure out what a good next home would be. I want to hang with #filmmakers, #composers, #MusicProduction folks, #songwriters, #syncmusic #producers, #filmtrailer editors and music composers, #MusicSupervisors, #tveditors and the like.
Any suggestions for a good #instance for me?

Also just had a successful table-read for it @SpotlightUK on the West End w/a very talented & funny cast of UK actors! Now I just need to get a #UKagent so I can submit it & my other tv specs to #producers!🤞 #amquerying #neurodiverse #tvwriter
