5 yrs of netwaves



to celebrate its fifth birthday, netwaves releases a double compilation with an overview of netlabels' essentials: this is not a sort of 'best of', because there's too much beauty in the netlabel world to put on two records;
this is merely a subjective choice of netaudio delikatessen, collected by our netwaves team;
we've split up the collection in 2 releases: one to party, named 'beats', and one to drink cava, called 'bytes', hence 'beats and bytes'

we wish to thank all artists and netlabels for sharing their stuff with the universe and the 99% of us

K.U.Leuven kiest voor Open Access

Vanuit een van de grootste werkgevers in Leuven, komt volgende positieve wind gewaaid, het is alsof de VRT in een mededeling aankondigt om "Creative Commons-muziek" te spelen:

"Het Universiteitsbestuur heeft het voorstel goedgekeurd om Open Access aan de K.U.Leuven te implementeren. Dat zal gebeuren via het eigen, nog uit te breiden depot LIRIAS. Open Access houdt in dat onderzoekers hun onderzoeksresultaten vrij op het internet beschikbaar stellen. Het fungeert als een etalage van de onderzoeksresultaten van de universiteit en kan zo de toegankelijkheid van het onderzoek verhogen en de K.U.Leuven als onderzoeksuniversiteit profileren.
De Dienst Onderzoeksco�rdinatie en de Universiteitsbibliotheek zullen de uitvoering van het project verder vorm geven.

do you need me?

This weekend this song was hanging in my head, i don't know why, or where it came from. It just sometimes happens, and this time it was, fortunately, a nice, kitschy, 'gay', tune. Thanks to the open - what some call the illegal - aspect of the internet, i'm a happy guy to rediscover this tune, and what's more, to find out the existence of a bizar videoclip i wasn't aware of. With Portuguese subtitles 8-S
This is not only the strength of the internet, but also the strength of search engines (in this case Google, you should try this once, haha!), where i found the result in just 3 steps with the only data i knew: "do you need me?" and "70's". Thank you, internet!
Sorry for the people who don't like 70's kitsch.

4 voorstellen voor Sabam

"Illegaal geld innen: ik dacht dat dit enkel in Sicili� wijdverbreid was."

Lees in dit opinie-artikel in de Standaard de reactie van Lieven Scheire op de uitspraak van Sabam-persverantwoordelijke Thierry Dachelet dat de Basta aflevering over Sabam kwam van een "ontevreden artiest die aast op revanche".
Lieven doet vier interessante, constructieve voorstellen voor het nieuwe imago van Sabam.

what's hot, what's not?

Here are some updates about netlabels and netlabelism:

The Netaudio London festival passed without any significant notice, despite the presence of Nurse with wound and Bruce Gilbert. You can read a review on netlabelism.com

The upcoming Netaudio Lissabon festival is postponed, due to technical reasons. Read more in this press message.

This year there was no Cologne Commons festival, as you noticed of course. The reason why is unclear. We hope we can rejoin them next year, because it's a cozy party.

"The Sun Will Rise" is a 'Inter-Netlabel Compilation for Japanese Relief'. This release is an artistic support for the victims of the disasters in Japan. You can download the album with mostly ambient, downtempo, chill-out music from the IA parking. The project just closed down the donation part. More info at the project's website.

The famous Spanish techno-techhouse netlabel Offaudio quits the netlabel scene. Read more at their website: "After 7 years, Offaudio says adi�s". No reason is given for the departure, but as with lots of gone netlabels, we presume personal change-of-life reasons are an important factor for this kind of decisions. Pity.

Netwaves just discovered a new netabel e-zine: Net Audio Magazine, important for its reviews of netlabel releases.

The Spanish netlabel e-zine "Netlabels & News" has moved to it's own server: http://netlabelsnews.org/

debat Sabam - epiloog



Vorige donderdag hebben we het feest van de arbeid vooraf gevierd met een debat over kunst en kultuur, en hoe open dit kan zijn met bvb. Creative Commons. De opkomst was laag en de discussie niet wereldschokkend, maar dat weerhoudt netwaves niet om al een volgend debat voor te bereiden. Suggesties voor onderwerpen zijn steeds welkom.

Dank zij onze collega's van de nieuwsdienst Scoops van Radio Scorpio, zijn er 2 zeer interessante interviews te beluisteren: eentje met Lieven Scheire en eentje met Thierry Dachelet, ��n van de opperhoofden van Sabam.

interview Lieven: http://www.radioscorpio.be/iservolgenslievenscheiremuzieknasabam
interview Thierry: http://www.radioscorpio.be/dereactievansabam

Die van het studentenblad Veto beperkten zich daarentegen tot het interviewen van de BV'er Lieven, en dan nog zo weinig mogelijk over Sabam. Echt kleinzierig!

artikel Lieven: http://www.veto.be/veto/veto3722/NAVRAAG.html
