creating a fairer condition
We support this initiative in creating a fairer condition for all workers of music. The science and arts of communication through music must have the right legal framework which will enable or strengthening the position of the creators, performers and the artists!
Support DIY, the underground music scene, your local artists and promotors. pay for some of the tracks, show respect, come to the shows and communicate!
It is long overdue!
MICA's Fair Music Initiative, if adopted by the music industry throughout the world (and it should be), is something of a Geneva Convention for composers and musicians; it is long overdue.
A stand for solidarity among labels, musicians and everbyody else
In a time where the classic value added chain in the independent music business is more and more unbroken by outside powers, it is important to take a stand for solidarity among labels, musicians and everbyody else in the chain so we can keep the doors open for creative variety and act as independently as possible.
Strengthening the position of the creators
“Strengthening the position of the creators who are at the core of the music business and the reason for it’s existence, can be nothing but fair!”
Involve all !
Creating fair conditions for the creation and production of music has a broad impact. In a global environment, this means creating the right legal framework so that musical diversity can really thrive, and creating the right artistic framework so that the social status of the musician, composer, creator, and producer are acknowledged and improved.
I see the exciting possibilities of [more or less] world wide exchange of ideas and content
... through the net as well as the sometimes painful decrease of income due to inequitable practices and imbalanced distribution of resources - to name just a couple of aspects
we were very happy to receive the Fair Music Award!
From the very beginning we wanted our music to be heard by as many people as possible. Our intention was to not play and experiment in front of a specialist audience and other fellow musicians, but to create an own infrastructure, a "JazzWerkstatt" [in English: jazz workshop] that also attracts a genre-untypical audience.
We hope the fair music award will be able to raise a loud dissenting voice and contribute to keeping the doors to the world open.
Even Joseph Haydn had his problems with fairness in the music business
