is the foundation of the entire digital music industry, but many people
don’t know it because the sizzle factor remains low,” said Bill Wilson,
Vice President of Digital Strategy & Business Development at Music
Biz. “Over the last four years, we’ve fought to change that with the
Metadata Summit, amplifying the importance of data, providing a high
level forum for discussion, and attracting key participants. We’re
looking forward to another lively discussion among actively involved
parties at every level of the business at our fifth installment.”
The event will be headlined by a keynote from Barak Moffitt, Executive VP of Content Strategy and Operations at the Universal Music Group.
With more than 25 years in technology and music, including stints at
Capitol Studios in Hollywood and the EMI Music Group, Moffitt will share
his expertise on the importance of standardized, high-quality metadata
and explain how it can be used to power new experiences in digital
music. Chief among these is the rise of voice search via devices such as
Amazon Alexa and Google Voice, which will be the subject of a panel
hosted by Music Week’s Emmanuel Legrand and featuring Sony Music Entertainment’s Chris Frankenburg and Quantone Music’s Mike Pegan.
In addition, updates will be provided on global information infrastructure initiatives such as ISRC, DDEX, ISNI, and OMI by representatives
from the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), Digital Data
Exchange (DDEX), County Analytics, and the Open Music Initiative (OMI).
The Summit will also tackle major metadata-related issues such as
global songwriting royalty collection, proper implementation of
standards, and programmatic techniques for predictive metadata with
representatives from Downtown Music Publishing/Songtrust, Loudr, OpenPlay, Pandora, ProMusicDB, and VeVa Sound.
