Metadata Is Money: Helping Artists Manage Their Music’s Identity

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 like composer and musician names, recording dates, genre. In other cases, it’s numeric data like 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. Proper metadata ensures that you are compensated for your work. If your metadata isn't correct, you aren't getting paid! You already may be losing money!

Music Biz invites musicians, composers, producers and artist managers to this workshop where digital music experts will describe the function of a quartet of numeric identifiers -- ISRC, ISWC,  ISNI and UPC codes -- including how to acquire them, and how to associate them with your creative assets. The workshop will also cover the important data-related actions you can take -- from properly documenting recording session participants to registering your works with your PRO -- to facilitate discovery, attribution, and monetization in today’s digital ecosystem.
