Cultural Commons Collecting Society with Jason Sigal (FMA) & Chris Zabriskie at SXSW 2013
Last year, Cultural Commons Collecting Society (C3S) submitted an entry to SXSW’s Panel Picker. You may remember our call to arms to help vote for us in late August. Actually, and only with the help of our supporters, we made it. The session “C3S: Putting the Revenue in Creative Commons” has been held last week on Wednesday.
Upcoming topics in music, copyright & marketing at ContentSphere
Having conceptualised a good part of Berlin music conference all2gethernow’s discussion topics, I suddenly find myself with heaps of thoughts and content not published on ContentSphere. It just would be a shame to not make use of it. These topics are dealing with issues and they are raising questions. I contributed them to a2n because of their relevance in today’s music business.
Free Music Archive Hosts all2gethernow Compilation of Creative Commons Music
I told you, we soon would change the main host for the files – due to GEMA (Germany’s collecting society). Hosting the files myself would make my blog a shop – even if the download’s for free. Plus I would have to report the hosting to GEMA, despite the fact it’s all Creative Commons music. It’s crazy but it’s a fact. And here we are!
all2gethernow 2010 wants your feedback!
The full programme featuring seven theme tracks can still be found online. We are working on the documentation right now and got some marvellous feedback. Taking place for the second year now, the Berlin music conference has changed its face in many ways. There are some issues to work on, some new concepts to keep, and a few ideas from 2009 which should be revived.
all2gethernow 2010: Out Now – Free Sampler With Creative Commons Licensed Music
For all2gethernow 2010 (a2n), I contacted a few guys from the German netlabel community plus some artists and teamed up compiling this sampler. It includes various styles of music, from electronics to singer/songwriter stuff. But, you should take a listen for yourself. It’s a treat.
c/o pop Cologne Goes c’n’b – Lessons To Be Learned
This week, I’ve been to c/o pop conference, or, precisely put, I’ve been to c’n’b conference at Cologne. I absolutely have no clue why re-branding something established. Would you consider changing your domain name? It’s much easier for your audience to stick with the same name although it might not entirely match the topics you present.
SXSW: What’s Up The Schedule?
Thought it might be a nice idea to post the sessions I’m most probably to attend. Though, there are some German hosted events I will have to be present. Also, you might never know who you are going to meet.
Bad Travel Can’t Spoil Anticipation For #SXSW and #a2n
Know what: I f***ing hate having no web in train. For four hours. Four hours I could have been working. Ok. I give up. I’m playing around with my my cell phone now to tweet… then again – it’s no iPhone (and I really wish I would have one). But no, not available with any plan at Vodafone. So I’m still using my old Sony Ericsson P1i. 4 chars on 1 key. Great.
Berlin’s all2gethernow Coming To SXSW – YEEEHAW!!! #a2n
all2gethernow 2010, which is scheduled for Sept 6th-12th, will be present at SXSW in Austin (TX). We are joining teams from Cologne, Hamburg and more peeps from Berlin. All the freshest news on Germany’s musical landscape and what you are about to expect at all2gethernow – just come over and have a chat with gorgeous Andrea Goetzke or myself.
all2gethernow: Documentation is here.
Finally. Editing of videos, compiling all material and statements took more time than expected. But it’s – almost – done. Unfortunately, most statements are available in German only. Yet some of the sessions were held in English. One video I’m sure you will enjoy: Amanda Palmer live at Münze Berlin (almost 80 minutes).
