Hi Julie! This week I just had to go back to the Archive and listen to the Emile Simon performance and interview, and I'm sure I'll listen to it again, it was that good. I had planned to go to Summerstage on Saturday, then couldn't make it. I assume you were there and the show was great?
Avatar 🦇 Swag For Life Member 3:19am Julie:

It was and it wasn't..I'll talk about it in a bit. And yes, her set was amazing

Aren't there problems wit FMA Creative Commons and average rights societies?
Being in German rights society GEMA the option for other licensing is finished for livetime. (Hard to believe but true.) Just asking ...
Avatar 🦇 Swag For Life Member 4:01am Julie:

Guido, that's way over my head. Sorry.
Avatar 4:07am Droll:

US copyright law recognizes a mechanical reproduction, a live performance, or a "song" (definitions vary with your choice of attorney). Performer's rights societies might be involved in one or more of those. Things get ugly quickly over very little, and FMA has little incentive to fight.

Sounds appropriate enough... Speaking of which, kudos to Serge Z, it's difficult to squeeze all that sound into speakers.
Band is just fantastic, that is really what I think.

Great! some live music in the morning again!
Love it!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:19am Guido from Cologne:

Thanks for the info! Roiughly the same here.
The thing is with composers rights.
If you are a member of GEMA you make a kind of live-long contract, that from that point in your live you must distribute everthing you creat with the GEMA and international partners involved. You are even not allowed to put somthing to public domain, nor Creative Commons or even just put sth. to Youtube for self promotion. (There are protests and sues against this. But no solutions yet.)

Avatar 🦇 Swag For Life Member 4:21am Julie:

There is some sort of songwriters rights thing going on in Congress, Paul Williams has been part of it (he is prez of ascap)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:21am Matt from Springfield:

Oh WOW! That's like the only place national/international acts would go! I'm looking into that!
Avatar 🦇 Swag For Life Member 4:22am Julie:

It was just such a coincidence I had to pass on the info
Avatar 🦇 Swag For Life Member 4:22am Julie:

You'll hear Valerie next week, and she is amazing live
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:26am Matt from Springfield:

Thanks for passing on, Julie! :)

And that's appropos--Paul Williams is best known for being a songwriter (though thanks to you we have heard his singing, as well!)
Avatar 🦇 Swag For Life Member 4:28am Julie:

I expect you to take photos of what they're wearing :)
Avatar 4:30am Droll:

There's a good English Wikipedia page for GEMA, but I'm immediately puzzled by the concept of three classes of "professional". I have some schadenfreude GEMA is stuck playing catch-up with technology just like everywhere else...

In some ways GEMA sounds cool, in the US you're on you're own and you end up publishing through ASCAP or BMI or some other smaller-scale accounting fiasco. At least it's all public record with GEMA.
  4:36am P-90:

@Guido I'm 100% certain that if you asked Chris Isaak if he thought Emilie Simone's performance of Wicked Game during a live in-station set should go on The Free Music Archive he would say ( as the songwriter): "sure! no worries!" But he has contracts with various entities that each own a piece of his income, and that's the real reason it's blocked-- we're a religiously capitalist nation that's lagging behind Europe in recognizing intellectual commons of many kinds.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:38am Matt from Springfield:

@P-90: That's the simpliest explanation--in America too many people "own a piece" of songs (or the versions thereof) to license them efficiently.
Avatar 4:40am Droll:

P-90, Which is precisely why an entire generation bypassed that system altogether and "freed" it all. Of course, Chris Isaak is free to say his music is free now that he made his million. Emille is still excited about working her own merch table.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:47am Matt from Springfield:

Hiya BGZ, and kudos to your latest "vaguely seizure-inducing avatar", as someone put it :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:47am Guido from Cologne:


There are some advantages in German law that preven the artist form fooleries. Like it is not possible to sell an authorship away completely.

On the other hand GEMA is so incredibly old fashioned. They rely on the good old method to gather music licence money by visiting shops and listen after public radio doodeling. They sue YouTube ... wich basically is not too wrong ... since big company is living on bootlegging in the very end.

But I think it would have been the very duty of the rights societies to set up asomething like sopztify in the very dawning of MP3 ... it would have been the justest system of music licencsing imaginable. Instead they imped musicians on using modern methods of self promotion. It is so plain annoying.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:48am Matt from Springfield:

@Guido: Was it John who was switched off, or the guest? That's not good for his show, but a one-sided interview would be Pythonesque in another context..
  4:48am P-90:

A guy like Isaak is a fairly substantial business. He has representation, management, record company, etc. who each own a part of his income. Their contracts specify strict limits on the distribution of his work, to "protect" their interests...
BTW you guys may have heard that whenever Dean Martin was broke, he would sell someone a share of his future income for a cash "investment", eventually he had promised several thousand percent of his earnings (but he wasn't a songwriter).
Avatar 4:48am Droll:

Really humble buncha shoegazers... Great set (music & interview). The reverb reminded me of bootleg backstage interviews!

Good band, she has a terrific voice!
Maybe the "hall" style reverb the engineer used on the live set was left on for the interview? Or was the interview not done right after the set? Actually, the big reverb sounded cool on the interview, like a Murray the K old-style AM radio sound

@ Droll: Bowie actually did an IPO and "went public", his shares are traded like any other big corporation.
@ Julie: Unfortunately, as I 'm sure you know, all that bullshit is the norm at Summerstage, When I go there, I go in dreading what might go on in the audience, particularly whoever I'm gonna wind up in the vicinity of...
@fred von h. Good Morning!
Avatar 5:18am fred von helsing:

purraps Émilie is an emissary from a strange alien civilisation bent on nurturing our higher emotional intelligences and turn us into true sentient beings, flying in the face of all our baser impulses, bringing us light, and grooves, and the full charm of the galactic civilisation that we know is out there but it is not tangible, in a way that would liberate our butts to bounce and sway in the cosmic wind
Avatar 5:24am Droll:

Bowie went public? How ironic...

I wish to stay upwind of the bouncing cosmic butt wind.
Avatar 5:28am fred von helsing:

Consider the perspective of the monolith in "2001", when we meet it again in orbit about Jupiter. "Oh okay, the monkeys finally got rockets 'n shit." If only we had played it some Émilie... some space oddity... some dog... some danceable groove... what would it have said ?
