Musikstadt Berlin - Roundtable zur Entwicklung internationaler Musik- und Kreativstandorte
Berlin strahlt hell im internationalen music business. Gefeiert wird Berlin als Stadt der Kreativen und einzigartigen Musikerlebens. Kleine und mittlere Unternehmen der hauptstädtischen Musikbranche verfügen über potentiell weltweit wettbewerbsfähige Expertise, gleichwohl fehlt mitunter gezielte internationale Vernetzung, Know-How und finanzieller (Anschub-) Support, um nachhaltig erfolgreich auf neuen Märkten reüssieren zu können. Im strategischen Kernthema „Internationalisierung“ gibt es Handlungsbedarf. Berlin zehrt von einer großen Vergangenheit, die Anfang der 90er Jahre in einer weltweit einzigartigen Grunddisposition der Nachwendejahre und dem Inselcharakter davor begründet liegt. Doch der Status der „Stadt der Kreativen“ findet schnell sein Ende, wenn die Kreativen hier von ihrer Arbeit nicht leben können. Laufend sollten strategisch orientiert Grundlagen für eine neue Strahlkraft des Standortes Berlin gelegt werden. Welche Modelle der Innovation und Cross-Over Vernetzung sind heute gefragt und passend, um das „Zugpferd der Kreativwirtschaftsszene Berlins“ zu ertüchtigen?
Diese sollten auf die Künstler*innen beziehen, die Entwicklung innovativer Formate und Produkte, neuer Modelle der Wertschöpfung sowie auch den dafür notwendigen Know-How-Transfer involvieren. Basis dafür ist ein verstärkter internationaler Austausch sowie permanente internationale Präsenz der Berliner Musikunternehmen und Branchenformate, Konferenzen und Festivals.  Dieser Roundtable bringt die Akteur*innen, Macher*innen, die der Politik, Verwaltung und Förder*innen in einen konstruktiven Austausch.

A New Age of Publishing?
In todays’s day and age many artists feel uncomfortable signing away all their rights to publishers, labels or others - and they don’t have to anymore. The digital revolution has brought up many different models, giving artists total control of their rights and art. But which options are out there and what does this mean for the Publishing Industry? Will it be solely reliant on their already existing back catalogue or evolve together with the artists into a new age Publishing?

Touch the Music: Enhancing Future Digital Musical Devices through Haptic Feedback
Vibrotactile sensation and force feedback, known collectively as haptic cues, are  an important aspect of music playing as well as music listening, but still not fully exploited in the design of new digital instruments and interfaces. While current designs usually offer touch-mediated interaction, they fall short of providing a natural physical experience to the performer and listener alike as they generally lack meaningful haptic cues.
In our recently published book Musical Haptics we bring together for the first time a number of multidisciplinary perspectives on the role of haptic interaction in music performance and experience, from touch biomechanics to multisensory perception to haptic technology and design. We argue that establishing a rich haptic channel in musical interfaces will enhance user experience and performance, improve accessibility for disabled persons, and provide an effective means for musical tuition and guidance.

Who's Got Talent: (Wo)Man Or Machine?
Music is art. Art is unique. Machines can't do that... or at least, that's what some people say. 

Machines learn exponentially fast. They can be creative in their own way. That's what the others say.

In a controversial conversation this session will answer some provocative questions: 

• Is there promise in machines creating music? What is it? What opportunities await?
• What's wrong with machines creating music? Where is the void, and which questions remain unanswered?
• What does an algorithm need to be creative? Can it fundamentally change our understanding of music?

The last question goes to the audience too - they'll be asked to generate their ideal hypothetical music machine: the perfect man-machine collaboration.

Women in Music - Vom Gendergap zur Community presented by RockCity Hamburg und Most Wanted: Music
Fast 80 Musikfrauen gründeten 2017 in Hamburg ihre eigene Interessenvertretung mit Datenbank für Musikfrauen in ganz Deutschland. Der Name musicHHwomen – art.business.media. ist dabei Programm, denn das Netzwerk will Plattform für Musikfrauen aus allen 3 Bereichen sein. Ob Musikerin (art), Bookerin (business) oder Musikjournalistin (media), allen wird das neue Netzwerk Qualifikation, Austausch, Teilhabe, Stärkung, Schutz und Präsenz bieten.
Hintergrund der Netzwerkgründung ist der vorherrschende Geschlechterkonflikt in der Musikbranche. Solange kaum Erhebungen, belastbares Datenmaterial, Teilhabe am politischen Dialog oder Zugang zur zumeist männlichen Führungselite existieren, bleiben Frauen im Gegensatz zu ihren männlichen Kollegen im arbeitsreichen, aber schwach bezahlten Kultur- und Sozialsektor verhaftet. Schaut man sich die Führungsebenen von Musikunternehmen an, fällt aktuell auf, dass nur 7,4 Prozent der Mitgliedsunternehmen des VUT von Frauen geführt werden. Nicht anders sieht es mit dem Anteil von Frauen auf Festivals aus. Der Anteil an Produzentinnen, Schlagzeugerinnen, Komponistinnen, Labelbetreiberinnen liegt unter 5,0%. Diese Session von Netzwerkgründerin Andrea Rothaug gibt Einblicke in die Situation von Frauen in der Musikbranche und zeigt neue Wege zwecks Empowerment, Präsentation und Know-How Transfer von und für Frauen in der Musik.

Music Pool Community Night: The Management Hypothetical
Artists and managers face tough business and creative decisions every single day. Do you take the opening slot? Is that sync fee good or not? What do you do?

APRA AMCOS and Music Pool Berlin present The Management Hypothetical panel to help you answer these questions.

Inspired by Geoffrey Robertson's "Hypotheticals" TV series in Australia, this will explore the decision-making process of an imagined artist's career with the help from a panel of expert managers. 

Through a series of 'what if' scenarios, we'll examine how a manager engages with an artist: from the point of discovery, through to sourcing and securing deals  across the industry, managing an artist’s expectations and maintaining their well-being throughout their career. 

In case you hadn't guessed: this is an essential panel for anyone who works in, or hopes to work in, artist management.
