Moderator og forperson for Autor, Anna Lidell, indledte samtalen om status på kønsbalancen med et oprids over, hvor svært det kan være for kvinder eller kønsminoriteter at begå sig i musikbranchen. Hun påpegede, at man i dag er kommet et langt stykke vej, men at der stadig er lang vej til en mere ligestillet og kønsbalanceret musisk scene.

Despite their differences, they nodded in agreement to each other’s suggestions and hopes for sustainable music. In particular, they all agreed that people in positions of power must be held accountable and react before their initiatives can have any effect.

Just about everyone has access to streaming services. That also means that just about everyone has access to just about all music. And as a musician, you earn very little from having your music available on streaming services. To discuss new ways of monetizing music, SPOT+ had gathered a panel consisting of director of Digidi, Henrik Leschly, founder of Hun Solo and former lead singer of Blue Foundation, Kirstine Stubbe Teglbjærg, as well as crypto artist Jonas Kasper Jensen. Henrik Leschly began the discussion by listing some quite outrageous facts about musicians’ income sources.

Fan economy: Musikken skal gøres mere eksklusiv

Stort set alle har adgang til streamingtjenester mod et mindre beløb. Det betyder også, at stort set alle, har adgang til stort set alt musik. Og som musiker tjener man i dag minimalt på at have sin musik liggende ude på streamingtjenester. I en paneldebat var der til SPOT+ samlet et panel bestående af direktør af Digidi, Henrik Leschly, stifter af Hun Solo og tidligere forsanger i Blue Foundation, Kirstine Stubbe Teglbjærg og kryptokunstner, Jonas Kasper Jensen. Henrik Leschly lagde ud med at ridse nogle ret vilde pointer op, der sætter musikernes indtjening på spidsen.

Niels Mosumgaard, director of the Music Industry’s Network, found his way to this year’s SPOT+ conference to present the trade network’s outline for a collective export strategy for the Danish music industry. The plan was created in the shadow of two recently released rapports on the Danish and European music export strategy that both call for wide-spread changes to our understanding of music as an export product.
