Metadata Summit [clear filter]

Keynote Presentation: The Ladies of Metadata Shed Light On How We Got to Now
As an introduction to this year’s Metadata Summit, we are going to take a look back to when our industry first started to take about tagging, identifiers, coding, etc. In this lively discussion with four of the women who have led the charge on data issues faced not only by their own company, but the industry at large, we will share insights on where we have come from and where we are going in the metadata space.


This session is part of our Metadata Summit presented by Dataclef and supported by DataArt, Exactuals, Nielsen Music, and VEVA Sound
For years, experts have forecast the tremendous importance of sophisticated metadata solutions to the future success of the music industry. The data challenges we face are no longer tomorrow’s problems, they are today’s. You may be surprised to learn, leading companies at the forefront of global music data are already operating technology platforms at scale which increase data accuracy, resolve conflicts, and maximize payments to rights holders.


Now in its seventh year, the Music Biz Metadata Summit returns in 2019 to offer substantive, in-depth discussions about how these solutions are operating in the real world today. Through case studies and panels with music data leaders, we will demonstrate how the solutions we’ve been waiting for are already beginning to make a difference worldwide.


We will also examine major legal and political changes (like the Music Modernization Act) and how they affect these solutions. Modern music rights requires significant public-private partnership, as we usher in new music metadata paradigms. We explore what these partnerships mean for music technology platforms of all kinds.


Looking to the future, we will discuss cutting-edge technologies like AI, machine learning, and blockchain to unravel their complicated but essential role in music rights. We explore how creating shared vocabulary, data standards, and best practices are essential for continuing the initial success we’ve seen so far.


Join us as we reveal the inner workings of today’s metadata universe, the hot new technologies and standards essential to continuing forward progress, and how your company can benefit from making metadata a primary business focus.

The Changing Tides of Music Metadata
The metadata revolution is now in full swing, as this complex standard becomes more and more important to business development, QA, content and publishing operations in the music industry. Our panel of music metadata movers and shakers will reflect on the progress already made in metadata implementation in an attempt to address the most pressing data questions facing the industry at large:


How has music metadata changed in the last two years? 
The session will begin by looking back at the progress made over the past few years and identifying which companies and organizations are driving the change, including DDEX, ISNI, and OMI.


What has improved, and how do we make it better?
The conversation will then shift to how the industry can ensure that data is being entered correctly in the first place. What would the perfect world of DAW data entry look like? And can we have audio workstations with integrated data workflows that work out the credits for a session in a smart manner?


What needs more work? 
Identifiers are key to mapping complicated data sets, allow us to “tell a story” by giving depth to raw data. Going forward, how do we ensure that independent intermediary identifiers can be created at any stage of the process, and then mapped to identifiers such as ISWC later? Or, would it be more effective if we drew the process up from scratch?

Data in a Post-MMA World
The passage of the Music Modernization Act ushers in a new paradigm around the role of data for mechanical licensing. Pre-MMA, getting access to accurate publishing metadata was as elusive as a sighting of a rare elephant shrew in the wild. Really. Now enacted into U.S. law is a piece of legislation that mandates a publicly accessible database of mechanical rights owners, identifiers and underlying metadata.


Join experts in music licensing, metadata, and rights management systems to discuss how the MMA and impending MLC will change global data sharing practices, norms, and potentially the reduction of duplicative processes to match sound recordings to compositions.

Case Studies: Music Data in Action
In this session, we take you through a few brief examples of how music metadata solutions are being implemented today. Get a glimpse inside the complex challenges and solutions encountered when making music data operate at scale.


Case Study 1
Dataclef, as a wholly-owned subsidiary of SOCAN – one of the leading rights management organizations in the world – leverages over 90 years of experience in rights and data management. Our case study will focus on how the Dataclef Suite ingests and manages the world's repertoire of music data and consumption for our customers by leveraging world-class technology, data practices and workflows to provide scalable services which ultimately pay rights holders quickly and accurately.


Speaker
Janice Scott, Dataclef


Case Study 2
CD Baby is the largest global digital distributor of independent music and the largest publishing rights administrator in the world, representing over 650,000 recording artists, 100,000 songwriters, half a million albums, and more than 7 million tracks across 800+ genres. With so much data coming in from indie artists and labels, it was imperative that the company find a technology partner to ensure that publishing info and master recordings are linked accurately and consistently, conform to all DSP standards, and are optimized for search. They reached out to Exactuals about RAI, which utilizes machine learning bolstered by human experts to accomplish those goals quickly so that artists can get paid, DSPs can aid discoverability, and customers can get the best possible experience and recommendations. In this session, Exactuals' Chris McMurtry and CD Baby's Kelly Jones will discuss their work together and explain exactly how RAI can be used to link Master Recording and Publishing information and clean up metadata to meet DSP standards.


Speakers
Kelly Jones, CD Baby
Chris McMurtry, Exactuals


Case Study 3
Rumblefish – HFA’s licensing and administration service - offers a one-stop solution to manage administration, licensing, data or royalty management needs. Our clients including Warner Music, ClassPass, UltimateGuitar, LANDR, Smule and other DSPs. HFA’s John Raso will be joined by a Rumblefish client to discuss the current state of identifying and administrating publishing rights, establishing licenses and accounting royalties.

Future Is Now: Emergent Music Data Technology You Can Use Today
The music-industry potential of emergent technology concepts like AI and the blockchain is staggering. From creating a transparent and interoperable ledger of music rights data on the blockchain to drastically cutting down on unidentified and unclaimed royalties via AI, the use cases for these technologies is nearly limitless. But what is often lost in the discussion of these possibilities is the fact that many viable applications of these technologies already exist today. In this panel, a series of companies currently offering products built on emergent tech concepts will show attendees how they can take advantage of their potential today.

Designing New Data Solutions for Voice-Based Music Discovery
Smarter speakers and voice-enabled virtual assistants are taking over the home. These next-generation smart home devices are changing the way people find and experience music.  Unlike text searches, voice searches must be accurate and leave very little room for errors. Voice searches must understand context and unpack multiple queries in a single question.  


As a result, descriptive information and metadata become critical for voice-powered searches. This panel will explore how voice is changing consumer behavior, the challenges for music-related voice queries and data, and how the industry is applying AI and machine learning to drive next-gen music search and discovery in the smart home.

Making Modern Music Metadata Standards Work
As the entertainment industry modernizes the links between ISWC, ISRC, EIDR, ISAN, and many other identifiers, along with the platforms that power them, what can be done to unify metadata systems, identify cross-format usage, and create scalable best practices? Where do data standards like DDEX fit? This final panel will draw on the topics of the day to discuss and propose new metadata standards, connections, and identifiers, with a focus on simplifying...not complexifying.
