Florian Schneider: the enigma whose codes broke open pop music

Delivered... Alexis Petridis | Scene | Wed 6 May 2020 6:47 pm

The Kraftwerk co-founder remained a mystery even after death, but there is no doubting the impact he made with his group’s sublime, visionary music

Florian Schneider’s death came shrouded in a degree of secrecy. Gossip among fans about his health was first provoked at the end of April, when his fellow former Kraftwerk member Wolfgang Flür posted a sweet photo on social media of him and Schneider together in a bar, without explanation.

It had apparently been taken in 2016 – a decade and a half after Schneider and fellow founder member Ralf Hütter had served Flür with a lawsuit provoked by his autobiography I Was a Robot – and was subsequently deleted from Flür’s Facebook page. Then, a week later, another electronic musician based in Germany, the Manchester-born Mark Reeder, posted a brief eulogy; one commenter claimed that Schneider had died “several days ago”.

Get lost in stupidly ace sounds and imagery of the algorave, then get smarter and make your own

Algorave culture has been training years for this – it’s an audiovisual form that can make even a screen and streamed sound really come alive. Just watch – and actually, don’t just watch, here’s how to learn, too. Normally, algorave articles talk breathlessly about code, blah blah, people coding on screen, isn’t that nerdy, look […]

The Basics of Music Rights for Webcasters and Podcasters – A Webinar at World Audio Day

Delivered... David Oxenford | Scene | Wed 6 May 2020 4:08 pm

Music licensing issues are always confusing.  At the request of streaming service provider Live365 which hosted World Audio Day as a virtual substitute for our all getting together at last month’s cancelled NAB Convention in Las Vegas, I participated in a discussion of those issues, trying to provide the basics as to who gets paid for what uses of music in digital media including webcasting and podcasting.  You can watch the video of the session here:

The issues discussed included the difference between the rights granted by ASCAP, BMI, SESAC, on one hand, and SoundExchange on the other (for more on this topic, see our posts here and here), the emergence of GMR (see our articles here and here), the current state of royalties for webcasters (see our articles here and here about the current CRB proceeding), and music issues for podcasters (see our articles here and here).  While the details of music royalties are complex and confusing, hopefully this discussion will provide viewers with enough information to at least ask the correct questions about the rights that they will need when consulting with their lawyers and royalty advisors about their digital media plans.
