Women and music: ‘The famous glass ceiling hasn’t been smashed’

Earlier this month, 1,993 women signed an open letter calling out sexism, sexual harassment and assault within the Swedish music industry. One prominent major-label executive there has since been suspended following multiple accusations of harassment.
This is the tip of the iceberg, there will surely be more dominoes falling, and discussion of how the music industry can get its house in order around these issues.
Part of that involves more women at every level of the industry, including in the senior roles that recent studies suggest remain largely male. A panel at the Slush Music conference in Helsinki discussed these issues.

VR and music: ‘The biggest challenge thus far is the storytelling’ (#SlushMusic)

Musical VR is creatively exciting but commercially nascent: key startups are still in their early days, while there’s no clear path for artists and labels to make decent money (or even a return on their investment) in virtual reality right now.
Should that stop them trying? You’ll be enormously unsurprised to hear that the answer was a firm ‘no’ from a session at the Slush Music conference in Helsinki this morning titled ‘How virtual reality will revolutionise music experience / the music industry’.

UMG’s Jonathan Dworkin: ‘Despacito is more than just a hit’ (#SlushMusic)

As SVP of digital strategy and business development at Universal Music Group, Jonathan Dworkin is playing a significant role in how the biggest major label wants to steer the digital music world in the years to come.
His speech at the Slush Music conference in Helsinki this morning focused on ‘the globalisation of the music business’ at the end of a year that has seen UMG benefit from the biggest-ever breakout hit from Latin America: ‘Despacito’.
“I’m not actually going to talk about the music business. I’m going to talk about the history of the shipping container,” he said. “You think I’m kidding?” He wasn’t.

How to spot the next music/tech giant (#SlushMusic)

2017 has been a fascinating year for digital music, from the growth in paid streaming to a wave of new accelerators and initiatives to help talented music startups get up and running.

Raine Group partner Fred Davis offered advice on ‘how to spot a giant’, while Techstars Music MD Bob Moczydlowsky provided an update on how that accelerator is approaching things.

Evolving exit strategies for music startups (#SlushMusic)

We’ll be blunt: for many music startups, the ‘exit’ is either shutting down when nobody wants their product or service, or an ‘acquihire’ of their team and/or tech by a bigger fish without the kind of valuation that gets investors salivating.
Might there be bigger and better exits ahead? A panel at the Slush Music conference in Helsinki this morning considered how music startups could be ‘building to get bought’.
It included iMuze CEO Yacin Bahi; Plus Eight co-founder John Acquaviva; and Project Everyone consultant Göran Andersson. The moderator was industry consultant Karen Allen.
