Santa Monica, CA (October 21, 2015)—The Recording Academy Producers & Engineers Wing will present a panel on recording metadata at the AES Convention.
“Your Credits, YOUR Money, the new Data Standards and DDEX—What YOU Need to Know!” will be held at 10:45 a.m. on Saturday, October 31, at the 139th International AES Convention at Javits Center in New York City.
A group of key international experts from the world of music business metadata will convene for the first time for this special event, providing timely information regarding new developments in the collection of recording metadata. Paul Jessop of the U.K.’s County Analytics will serve as moderator. Panelists will include Jonathan Bender, COO, SoundExchange; Maureen Droney, managing director, The Recording Academy Producers & Engineers Wing; Niels Rump, DDEX secretariat; and John Spencer, president, BMS/Chace.
In the digital world, capturing data during the recording process is more important than ever before. This includes credits such as creative contributor names and roles, along with song identifiers and technical information. Without this data, both monetization opportunities and payments to the recording’s creative contributors can be missed. The challenges to collecting this data and ensuring it flows throughout the entire supply chain are being addressed by a consortium of media companies working with DDEX, an international organization standardizing the music supply chain through the creation of common formats for information communication.
This special event, held in collaboration with The Recording Academy Producers & Engineers Wing, will provide a progress report introducing attendees to new data standards, an exciting new metadata collection application, and information about how these will impact audio and recording professionals in the very near future.
