TECHNICAL RIDER : the name given to technical information an artist should have on hand to provide to a venue , promoter , stage manager , or sound engineer in advance of playing a show. #musicbusiness
It exists to help the sound engineer or promoter or venue by answering questions that could take up precious time at soundcheck for example how many microphones will be needed for the artist to perform, where the vocalists will stand , stage lighting etc #followthread
It is important for artists to present themselves as professionals when booking shows , having an up-to- date , clear and accurate Tech rider will save lots of time and confusion for everyone involved in presenting the show #techrider #artistsontwitter

I want to discuss quickly why it’s important to understand the difference between a song and a sound recording and how that affects ownership and splits.
By song, I mean the composition: the music and lyrics.
By sound recording, I mean the performance of that composition as captured on record.

My #musicbusiness class today is about artist management. I wrote about finding a manager for @djbooth:
It's also important to understand a manager's role, and in my class I talk about seven things that managers do:
First, the big picture stuff: identifying the artist's goals and vision; developing and implementing strategies based on that, and coaching the artist and helping their decision-making throughout the process.

Let’s start from the top. The music business is like the finance industry 20 years ago. Unregulated by governments who misunderstand how it works. When I direct my anger at ‘the IFPI’, I’m talking about the Major Labels: @UMG, @sonymusic & @warnermusic.
They have been able to run the market based on their terms. They own more than two thirds of ALL recorded music. You may ask, but *how* have competition authorities allowed this to happen? Sadly the answer is: fuck knows.
They are presently making between 20 and 50 million dollars every single day from streaming and this is how they did it.
