From 6th to 9th of May 2010 a new festival dedicated to up-and-coming Austrian bands will take place in Vienna. In addition to numerous open-air concerts, showcases and label nights a FAIR MUSIC conference will highlight the current boom of Austrian pop music and its economic frameworks.
Aesthetic dimensions, economic potential and the risks of a rapidly changing industry will be addressed in discussions, workshops and lectures
with a focus on future models that suit the needs of artists and small and medium-sized labels.
Digitalisation has fundamentally changed the music business. After a large number of new techniques have created new prerequisites for the production, marketing and distribution of music, only one truth appears to be valid: everything remains different. The great old protagonists in the music industry still battle against sinking turnover figures, their former cash cows, like Radiohead or Madonna, don’t need them anymore. Music can be more and more consumed digital in a legal way. The Internet on the threshold of Web 2.0 develops clearly stronger to become an interactive medium than it was long sworn to be. The music fan is no longer content with the passive role of a consumer, but has become an active “prosumer”, who produces his or her own music-, film- and information programs, thus assuming the editing and moderation for others.
A stakeholder consultation was held during the 3rd World Forum on Music conference in Tunis October 2009.
This consultation was part of the Standards Setting Process, where the FAIR MUSIC standards are periodically reviewed by stakeholders representing different aspects of the music value chain.
FAIR MUSIC project partner Wouter Tourkenburg of IAJS (International Association of Schools of Jazz) presented the Standards in their current form and discussed it with his peers from other music organisations.
The results of this discussion became part of the current reviewed standards document.
