Soundnotation Workshop | Digital Sheet Music

Digitale Noten heute - per Mausklick zu neuem Content und Wertschöpfungsmöglichkeiten  
Wie funktionieren Noten auf Instagram, Youtube und Co?

Während die notierte Musik in den letzten Jahrzehnten nur ein Nischendasein gefristet hat, widmen sich auch in diesem Bereich mehr und mehr Startups neuen Geschäftsmodellen. Ob Notenlernen per App, Erkennung von Fähigkeiten und Lernfortschritt des Spielers, bis hin zu personalisierten Vorschlägen für neues Repertoire. Noten haben durch ihre barrierefreie Darstellung im Browser, nach langem Anlauf, jetzt auch im Internetalltag Einzug gehalten. Welche neuen Möglichkeiten ergeben sich dadurch für Rechteinhaber und wie kommen sie eigentlich ohne Vorwissen zu einem professionellen Notensatz?

Wasted: Music on the Blockchain
Blockchain technology seems to be the most decisive (and only) hope for musicians and artists in general. It delivers the promise of a transparent, secure and fair exchange for creative work. Or to say the least, to get more money faster. However, the mess musicians are in is only another even fractional proof for what is wrong in society and business as a whole. Economic principles or governmental systems with the best reputation start to malfunction or even fail. This talk puts music into perspective. Into the broad context of the fundamental changes and challenges ahead.

ABC_DJ : Translating Brand Values Into Music

The project ABC_DJ aims at providing new software tools that enable European branding agencies to identify brand-fitting music titles from large music archives. Therefore, a statistical model will be developed to predict semantic, brand-related connotations of musical pieces based on acoustical features of the music and the social and cultural context of the listeners. These predictions will be used to automatically create playlists which can be used for marketing and point of sale branding activities such as selection of instore music. ABC_DJ will thus increase the pool of music effectively exploitable for branding agencies significantly and enables them to serve the diverse market needs. The project receives funding by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 688122.

An Artist’s New Best Friend? Smart Contracts and Beyond
Digital innovation and technological advancement have opened up a multitude of new creative possibilities and could provide a better solution for rather practical issues such as rights administration within the Creative Industries. Smart contracts promise immediate and secure access to vital information on an artist and a work of art including terms of usage and subsequently ownership splits, rights holder’s contact information all the way to creative influences of the artist and equipment used. Literally everything could potentially be stored through technology such as Blockchain.

But aside from a streamlined administration, what implications could smart contracts or an idea like Imogen Heap’s Creative Passport have on artists and the creative process in general ?

Artificial Intelligence - Discovering the Potential for Creativity

Composing music with the help of technology is not as novel as the current discussion lets on: In the 1950s, for instance, the composer Lejaren Hiller used a computer to produce the first computer-generated score - the “Illiac” Suite for string quartet. 

This panel seeks to explore the Potential of Artificial Intelligence for Creativity and will look at how it can expand our toolbox and the scope of inspiration to create art. From the idea of an „Artificial Muse“ to creative ‚collaborations‘ between artists and AI such as Flow Machines, our expert panel will take a closer look at the amazing opportunities that can lie within technological innovation. The panel discussion will also address possible risks and inherent legal questions and invites the audience to join the speculation about the future ahead.

Why Every Event Promoter Needs a Data Scientist
Event organizers and promoters face multiple risks: artist cancellation, bad weather, etc. However, the most common yet usually uninsurable reason for unsuccessful events is unsold tickets since “78% of events don’t actually sell out”, according to Michael Rapino, CEO of Live Nation. Luckily new possibilities of gathering and analyzing data by the means of intelligent algorithms by now enable promoters to accurately predict ticket sales with no need to rely on their guts or big pockets.

Adaptive Game Sound - An Introduction to designing audible content for a nonlinear medium
In this workshop we look at the differences between a linear medium like movies or audio plays and a nonlinear medium like video games. Sound design for games should be adaptive to the player's behaviour to get him an intensive and immersive gameplay feeling. We also examine the techniques provided by middleware like fmod Studio not only to create event-based ingame sound design but also adaptive music which reacts on the states of a game always referring to the players' interactions.

Transforming Lives: The Impact of MusicTech
The rise of digital technology has changed the way how we produce, distribute and consume music but there is more to it. People with different physical abilities who are unable to play conventional musical instruments have the same desires to express themselves in a creative musical way, like anyone else does with a love to music. Music technology in the hands of creative minds who research, develop and collaborate on new musical interfaces and instruments make music accessible for people with special needs. Music Technology can ultimately make music more inclusive, involving everyone in a participative way.

Musik trifft Tech - Ein Erfahrungsaustausch initiiert von MusicTech Germany & VUT

Ausmaß und Dynamik des technologischen Wandels stellen Musikunternehmen vor erhebliche Herausforderungen. Gewachsene Strukturen und Geschäftsmodelle kollidieren nicht selten mit einem neuen Selbstverständnis von Künstler*innen und Nutzerverhalten der Musikkonsumenten. Technologiefirmen hingegen mühen sich, Mitstreiter*innen für ihre Ideen und Lösungsansätze zu gewinnen und um ein Verständnis für die besonderen Gegebenheiten der ‚traditionellen’ Musikunternehmen. Der vom VUT und MusicTech Germany initiierte Round Table am Dienstag, 7.11 soll den Dialog beider Seiten stärken und Kollaborationen fördern.
Erste Ergebnisse werden im Rahmen des Panels diskutiert.

Art Fiction - The Speculative Future of Art, Music and Technology
Moritz Simon Geist throws all predictions on “market development” and “consumer behaviour” overboard and enters the speculative domain of “Art Fiction”.
In his 25-minute talk, he presents absurd devices-of-the-future and imaginary products for the yet unknown needs of our future self. This happens in the cross section of society and art - for a world in which brain interfaces, body enhancement and nanorobots (finally!) have become everyday items.
Without concern for feasibility and usability, an unbiased and critical view of current techniques and technological tendencies is formed.

Über das Körpergefühl des humanoiden Roboters Myon
Im Gegensatz zu vielen anderen existierenden Robotern basiert die Bewegungssteuerung des humanoiden Roboters Myon auf einfachen Prinzipien, die eine gewisse Art von Körpergefühl besitzen. Dies lässt sich auch hörbar machen, so dass man einen Eindruck davon bekommt welche Anstrengung ein einzelnes Gelenk unternimmt, wenn es sich gegen externe Kräfte behauptet – wie z.B. die Erdanziehung oder die Berührung durch Menschen. Dies wird nicht alleine im wissenschaftlichen Kontext untersucht, sondern auch im Rahmen von Kunstprojekten.

From Unsound to the Symphony of Silence
Nik will speak about his latest sound installation "Infra Ultra" which is approaching the concept of an unsound system. "Unsound denotes a sonic frontier zone; a borderline at the fuzzy periphery of auditory perception, where sound is inaudible yet still capable of producing neuro-affects or physiological resonances, modulating both thought and the body" (Goodman, 2017). For Infra Ultra he recorded inaudible noises such as those emanating from bats, insects, wind turbines and electronic devices, pitching them into the bandwidth of human audibility (from 20Hz - 20kHz) and thus illuminating a hidden parallel reality. For his project, "Symphony of Silence", he travelled to North Korea in August 2017 to propose a piece of music based on the idea of anti-sound conceptualized for the site of the demarcation line between North and South Korea.

Kollektive Rechtewahrnehmung 4.0 – neue Chancen für das Musikbusiness?!
Mit der Digitalisierung von Musik sind die Zeiten überschaubarer Datenmengen vorbei. Nur wer in der Lage ist, diese richtig auszulesen, kann seinen Musik-Content wirtschaftlich monetarisieren. Allein die Bewältigung der Daten genügt aber nicht: DSPs verlangen nach globalen Lizenzen und lehnen oft nationale Lizenzen ab, was zu neuen Dateninfrastrukturen und neuen Playern am Markt führte, die leistungsstarke technische Monitoring- und Abrechnungssysteme anbieten. Sie sind damit nicht nur in der Lage, über die nationale Lizenzierung hinaus Rechte zu vergeben, sondern verarbeiten auch Big Data für ihre Lizenzgeber*innen und stellen hierdurch internationales Lizenzgeschäft sicher. Aber ist dies auch wirklich so und kassieren Verleger*innen und Autor*innen mehr durch die kollektive Rechtewahrnehmung 4.0 und erhalten faire Anteile an allen Nutzungen?

Interactive Audio Entertainment: Reinventing Radio

How convenient when you can choose the length of your radio news: a 5 minute long summary or the entire story or anything else in between! But this is not the only new format interactive radio has to offer when it comes to users designing their own audio experiences. What happens to musical content when content gets reactive, how are playlists affected and how do IoT devices fit in with their speech detection possibilities? What scenarios are we looking at in terms of listening environments and contexts like in-car and in-store entertainment or AR shopping tools? A lot to ponder within this fascinating session on latest interactive audio entertainment, so be sure to come by.

Sound & Space: Exploring the Depths of Spatial Sound and New Media Experiences

Sound & Space:  Exploring the Depths of Spatial Sound and New Media Experiences

3D audio technologies are rapidly entering all kinds of media. Virtual reality applications are only the most recent area where spatial sound gained much popularity, and many other fields have been using spatial sound since many years, e.g. music composition, production and live performances, theater, exhibition design, sound art, film, and radio drama. Hence, different perspectives on spatial sound have been developed, even on key concepts and ideas. What is spatial sound? Why should we care? Which kinds of sonic spaces can be designed, and how do they relate? What is the purpose of using spatial sound? What are the various approaches to create spaces and narrative places? How does the spatiality of sound help us to make sense of our media experiences?

Music Rights Supply Chain revisited - Wie Rechteinhaber*innen gerecht bezahlt werden können, wenn DJs ihre Tracks spielen
Auch im Jahr 2017 bleibt die gerechte Ausschüttung an Rechteinhaber*innen bei Plays im Club oder auf Festivals in Deutschland ein Problem, obwohl Music Recognition Technology (MRT) von Firmen wie DJ Monitor und digitale Distributoren wie Paradise Distribution die Infrastruktur zur Abrechnung längst bereithalten. Das Panel thematisiert die Problemstellen in der Entwicklung hin zu einer genauen, zeitgemäßen Abrechnung und zeigt in einer Live-Demo, wie das System von Clubbetreiber*innen und Eventorganisator*innen gewinnbringend genutzt werden kann.

MW:M #nights: Soft Manipulator
SOFT MANIPULATOR  (2017) is a playful interactive installation where the audience experiments with rhythms, mechanics and everyday items. Everyday items like glasses as well as small music instruments are placed on a light table. Also on the table are seven robotic mechanic devices, which can be manipulated interactively by the audience. The six robotic mechanics beat the objects, creating a constantly changing polyrhytmic web of sound and rhythm.

"Simon Moritz Geist’s new work 'Soft Manipulator', continues to explore the black box of electronic sound production by laying out an array of everyday objects and mini-robots, which acoustically interact with these objects,
on the flat surface of a metal table. As in his previous well-know robot installation "MR 808 Interactive Drum Machine", the audience can control this interaction, this time by means of easily manipulating objects and knobs which
require no particular expertise to operate. Thus the installation supports and inherent desire for experimentation and sound - in a playful way with everyday objects and mechanical robots." (Jessica Buskirk)
