‘The End of Magic: Algorithms and Analytics in A&R and Booking’
The transformation of the traditional production and distribution system in music continues at an incessant pace, dragging along many professional figures whose roles are destined to change or perish. The human sensibility of untouchables figures - A&R, artistic directors, booking managers - is now questioned in favor of the perfect objectivity of algorithms and analytics.
However, algorithms have proven to be more beneficial to those who have already achieved critical mass in their fan base, rather than the new, up-and-coming talent. So, what is the place now for the unexpected, the surprise, the outsider and the leftfield? Has the technological capacity to steer business choices in a bottom-up logic, based on public taste, overcome the magic of human intuition? Are data-driven decisions a threat or an opportunity for the music sector?
‘Networking: Meet Music Technology’
In recent years, people have experienced new and different ways of consuming music and colossal changes are underway in the fields of music production, distribution and management. New platforms have emerged, where the user is not merely a listener, but can create additional content that gets music heard. Take the opportunity to meet musictech consultants/hubs, startups and new digital platforms to get your music out there and stay innovative
