7 Essential Clauses In An Artist Management Deal

This post by Canadian entertainment lawyer Byron Pascoe originally appeared on the Bandzoogle Blog

One of the most important relationships in music is between the artist and his or her manager.

The manager’s specific role will depend on the manager and band, but generally the manager advises and directs the artist in connection with all matters relating to the artist’s professional career in the entertainment industry.

That’s pretty broad. As such, it’s important that the artist and manager are on the same page about the manager’s role, and also about their collective goals, and expectations of each other.

(De)Value Of Online Content?

There has been a fundamental pivot in the way we create, consume, and share content. As the entertainment industry has shifted from analog to digital, the behavior on how the consumers spend money for online content has significantly changed. The question is whether this content should be free and accessible to everyone (if so, to what extent), or should artists, content creators, and influencers properly charge for the online content they create.

Architectural Acoustics: How Your Music Hall's Layout Affects Sound Quality

The science of modern concert-hall acoustics was born in the late 1800s and early 1900s in the United States. The father of architectural acoustics was Wallace Clement Sabine, an assistant professor at Harvard who helped to plan the internal acoustics of the new Boston Symphony Hall, erected in 1900, and is considered to have be one of the best concert halls for its acoustics in the world.

By testing various halls using seat cushions, people, a pipe organ, various other materials and a stop watch, Sabine carefully measured the time required for different sound frequencies to decay within the various spaces.
