Is er muziek na Sabam? debatavond

Door de opkomst van het internet is Sabam teruggekatapulteerd naar de middeleeuwen. Terwijl de laatste 50 jaar cultuur steeds meer en meer in priv�handen terecht kwam (denk maar aan platenmaatschappijen, Hollywood, Clear Channel, uitgeverijen, ... ), strooide het internet roet in het eten van deze grote cultuurbonzen. Downloaden van sites als Napster en Kazaa werd modieuzer dan betalen. Maar wat met de rechten en inkomsten van de artiest?

Animo Leuven en netwaves.org proberen via een debat met de hoofdrolspelers de culturele toekomst te verkennen.

Gastsprekers:
Dirk Vervenne (Sabam)
Marco Raaphorst (muzikant en Creative Commons activist Nl.)
Jasper Verdin (muzikant en jurist Universal Music Belgium)
Akwalek (artiest en electrobel.be member)

Moderator:
Jan Lagrain (Netwaves)

Burst, The Hero Under My Pillow

we're very proud to announce the very first official (double) EP by our very own Akwalek (creator of the Netwaves jingles): "Burst, The Hero Under My Pillow: the attack of the double EP". This mp3lease is a succession of nervous beats split down by slow melodies, caught in a dreamy, sometimes sad atmosphere, in the words of the author "braindance". You can find the EP at the NY netlabel sixteensteps [ss010mp3], and don't forget to download the beautiful artwork!

Plataforma 2006 (Mexico)

Short movie by Nathan McCoy about netlabels: "This is a short film which documents an event in puebla Mexico called plataforma. It takes the form of a musical montage and explains the basic idea of a netlabel and its origins. All music heard in this video can be downloaded from different netlabels but focuses on the artists from the netlabel called Filtro."

radioheads attacked!

Rodeohood says: "Yesterday, around 20:00, in the neighborhoud of the Radio Scorpio Studio, some aggressive radiohats attacked the studio people, injuring two radioheads on their radiohead. The radiohats demanded to free the mp3 before oct. 10. Our informant confirmed that aggression and radiohate was in the air. As a result of this sample of radioheath, there were no Netwaves, but yes Notwaves."
Hear you next week!
