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.

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.

Anmeldung für den Roundtable am Dienstag, 7.11.

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.
