General Discussion / OurmusicChart.com beta mode is out
« on: September 19, 2008, 05:51:27 PM »
Sup people

Just letting you know that OurMusicChart.com Beta mode is finally out, feel free to browse around to get familiar with the place. http://www.ourmusicchart.com/about.php
At the moment we only have basic features and capabilities in place, we are currently working on some of the features and updating this site almost daily. We still working on the layout as well, but it's browseable if there's such a word.
And the OurMusicChart.com Mobile Application will be released by the end of September (or in 2 weeks time), so lookout for that. So in the meantime, do signup and expect a lot of great things to follow...It's FREE to signup.

For those who've never heard what the whole initiative is about, well
OurMusicChart.com is based on a study of the music industry's lows and highs, and the imbalances that exist (that is imbalances in the followed regulations governing music, and imbalances in between getting the music from the artists to the consumers; with some existing music delivery methods been unaccomodating/unfair to artists while some are unfair to the consumers or whoever is responsible for the delivery method) These imbalances have kept world wide music sales about $36.9 Billion lower than the 1996 sales.
Therefore Ourmusicchart.com is about finding a balance, satisfying the artists, those involved in working music delivery methods and the consumers.

OurMusicChart.com is a combination of All the music delivery methods that are in someway currrently satisfactory (radio/tv music chart shows, etc) with some practices that work in other industries (loyalty/affiliate programs, etc)
In other words, OurMusicChart.com is about finding everyway possible (includes Cool Stuff,Gigs Around and My Account) to bring about a balance that FORCES music sales while satisfying the most people in the process.

I could go on and on, but most of the features have not been updated yet so this is where i'll stop. But one feature to lookout for is the loyalty program (ours is a multilevel program without any meetings or joining fee), meaning when people download some stuff, it's not only the artist that will get paid, but the person downloading will also earn some cash.That is coming soon

At the moment it's still a lot of work in progress but we should soon be bringing you the final product.

I am now tired but need to keep working so people, dont forget to checkout http://www.ourmusicchart.com

Later

General Discussion / Survey
« on: July 01, 2008, 05:54:25 PM »
Sup ppl

Man aint been here for a very long time :o been finishing up a 4 year old project...just putting final touches to it :) glad i'm done

For those who down with stats; you know that world wide music sales are still down 8% (that's from about US$39 billion to US$2.9 billion), Although SA is up 2%, at the time we are at, and the level of quality of our music we should have been doing much more better (comparing the music to before 1996). Partly to blame was the big recording companies because of slow reaction to consumers' preference of digital music to CDs. Now that the Big 4 are awake, we've seen a lot of new experimental music delivery methods emerge since 2006. e.g BEBO, eMusic, Spiralfrog, Omnifone, etc...
We've built a delivery method that we believe should work to force sales and music promotion to go up (took about a year of research and 7 months coding/programming).

When i personally started putting the project together officially in 2005, it was just about getting SA music (mainly hip hop) to other continents but soon had to shut the project down (after getting contacts in Japan, all over Europe, US and Africa) because i realized there was more to the problem and i've been working on a music delivery system/method that i believe should be fair to consumers, artists, and broadcasting stations and we've finally put together something that will work for all under the music control Laws we currently have in place (Was difficult cause the old model laws do not work so much anymore, slowing growth down). There are a couple of imbalance(s) in the whole industry that we've been addressing with the project.

Anywho...I'm currently busy with a survey, just trying to find out from artists, recording companies, consumers and broadcasting station managers if they think the project is something they will support and if there are improvements that we'll have to be done immediately.

So please be kind enough to send me PM so i can send you a summary of the project for you to go through and let me know what you think of it.

Please indicate:
Your Name
Country and City
Email address

Please indicate If your are:

1. Artist (which will include the singer/rapper, producer and anyone else involved in song recording).

2. Indie or Signed?

3. Just a Recording company or Working at a broadcasting station (radio/tv)

Thanks in advance to those that will be kind enough to hit me up.

Almost forgot, Checkout www.ifpi.org for the stats.
