Many people ask if we can really add value to free data that can be downloaded from the Internet by anybody. We do not only work with easy-to-download data, but we know that free, public data usually requires a lot of work to become really valuable. To start with, it is not always easy to find.
Moderator: Steve Mayall (Music Ally). Speakers: Helienne Lindvall, Enzo Mazza (President of FIMI), Charles Kilby Welch (Kartel, tbd) and Daniel Antal, CFA (Digital Music Observatory, Reprex).
Reprex’s co-founder, Daniel Antal and our Listen Local curator, Marie Zhorová participated in the MaMA Festival & Convention in Paris on 13-15 October within the JUMP Music Market Accelerator Program. We introduced our Digital Music Observatory to national music organizations and encouraged them to try out a cooperation with us.
Invitation for Digital Music Observatory
We are looking for partners in France for our Digital Music Observatory. You can find us in Le Trianon, in the JUMP Corner.
Our Digital Music Observatory contributed to the Music Creators’ Earnings in the Streaming Era project with understanding the level of justified and unjustified differences in rightsholder earnings, and putting them into a broader music economy context. The entire research paper is published by the UK Intellectual Property office, and we made the details of our analysis available in a joint publication.
The Digital Music Observatory is a fully automated, open source, open data observatory that links public datasets in order to provide a comprehensive view of the European music industry.
