How Music And Data Work Together To Drive Discovery, Attribution And Royalties

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Metadata is all that information that identifies and describes your music. In some cases, metadata is text; composer and musician names, recording dates, genre. In other cases, it’s numeric data; UPC barcodes and ISRC codes. As the music landscape becomes increasingly digital and global – and where success is measured in streams and plays in addition to sales – proper metadata management is becoming an important part of every release workflow. Here we will describe what data is necessary, how to acquire certain codes, where and when to embed data, and what musicians need to keep track of. The goal is to provide you with a better understanding of how your music and data work together to power discovery, attribution and monetization.
