📢 “MusicAIRE project highlights” is back to showcase the 19th in line project, supported by MusicAIRE – “Listen Local Lithuania” (Acronym: LLLV), organised by Muzikos eksporto fondas VšĮ
🎵 “We will pilot a sustainable non-profit business model to various services that help self-releasing artists, small labels and publishers to better manage their data and metadata, and make sure that big data on big platforms works for them, and not against them. The resulting LDMDb and UDMDb will be harmonized with MusicBrainz, Wikipedia and Wikidata, the existing Ukrainian Music Industry Database and other resources, and it will be made available for further research for the OpenMusE or other research consortia that aim to support the diversity of music on global music platforms. “
We will develop a non-profit data service using open data and open source software. This project builds on the findings of the Central European Music Industry Report found in 2019 that in the CEE and Lithuania up to 70% of artist income was related to concerts, which is far above the historical average (where more than half of the revenues were royalties for artists). We want to raise awareness of the potential of revenues lost due to missing/incorrect copyright management and licensing data, and help achieve a more balanced revenue base for artists with a higher percentage of royalties.
