Michael Jackson and Sony search for unsigned acts online

  • Sony ATV, a partnership between Michael Jackson and Sony have partnered with Sony's phone company, Sony Ericsonn to create a new promotional space for breaking new and developing artists called ‘M-BUZZ’.


    Is the 'M' for Michael? who recently travelled around Kinsale in Ireland, potentially house-hunting in an area famous for it's reclusive celebrity residents.


    Even more interesting is the shift from "signed" artists towards "un-signed" artists. More and more audience are shifting from what they are told to like by the industry to what they truly like, recommended by friends or found online.


    “Sony/ATV Music Publishing is always looking for new and compelling ways to promote our artists and song writers,” said David Hockman, Chairman and CEO of Sony/ATV Music Publishing.


    http://www.m-buzz.com will go live on October 2
    NewsCorps MySpace, BT's Digital Music Awards, Coca-Cola iTunes and others are alsolooking at new and emerging entertainment artists. What will this mean for the future of the music industry? Has it finally woken up to the fact its audience has moved on, even if they havent? Will Robbie Williams need to get a mortgage?


    M-BUZZ will enable music fans everywhere to experience featured artists’ full tracks, videos, biographies, gig schedules and other content, allowing them to check out tomorrow’s stars up close and personal.
    Sony Ericsson also announced today that it has entered into a ground breaking partnership with Sony/ATV Music Publishing. M-BUZZ will initially showcase a limited number of artists and bands each month hand picked from the Sony/ATV’s worldwide roster. It will initially offer content for download to the phone with new commercial aspects being developed later as additional features are incorporated into the M-BUZZ space.


    “M-BUZZ is all about breaking new artists; it’s about giving tomorrow’s stars, the artists that have not yet been picked up by major record companies, the exposure they deserve and the possibility for them to reach a wider audience. Sony Ericsson is very excited to be providing this new stage and taking on a more active role in the music industry going forward. Music is about innovation, creativity and change, and with the addition of M-BUZZ we will broaden our already wide music offering even further at the same time as we are allowing people to discover fantastic new music that otherwise might pass them by,” explains Martin Blomkvist, Head of Content Acquisition and Partner Management at Sony Ericsson.


    According to Sony, “Today’s announcement is another great example of the cooperative spirit that exists between Sony Ericsson and other Sony Group companies, which gives us a unique opportunity to bring appealing, innovative content to our mobile phones,” says Miles Flint, President of Sony Ericsson. “M-BUZZ enables music fans not just to hear new, unsigned acts, but also to find out more about the musicians through interviews, home movies and more, creating a new mobile music experience.”


    “This partnership with Sony Ericsson gives our musicians and writers unprecedented exposure to music fans around the world, and we are very pleased to join with Sony Ericsson in bringing this unique music channel to consumers.”


    “We are thrilled to be partnering with Sony Ericsson to provide our artists and songwriters the opportunity to have their music heard by Sony Ericsson's many millions of global customers,” said Lauren Berkowitz, Vice President of Global Digital Business for Sony/ATV Music Publishing. “When it comes to breaking new and developing artists in the digital age, music publishers are in a great position to lead such initiatives, as we frequently work with artists very early in their careers, usually well before they have been heard on a larger scale.”
    The first phones offering M-BUZZ will be the W850 and W950 Walkman® phones announced earlier this year and scheduled to ship in European, Asian and Latin American markets during the second half of 2006.


    Artists on M-BUZZ at launch will include Kish Mauve, Embassy, Dirty Perfect, FKLV, Iggy, The Head Set, Bobby Kray, Anjulie, Lights and Monte*Rosa.
    http://www.m-buzz.com will go live on October 2 and downloadable content will be made available, in a phased approach, in 20 markets which already offer secure full track over-the-air music download services through Sony Ericsson’s PlayNow™ service.

  • Am 2. Oktober startet http://www.m-buzz.com, ein Partnerprojekt von Sony ATV (MJ und Sony Music) und Sony Ericson.
    Das wird eine Art Musik-Service sein, wo Künstler, die nirgends unter Vertrag stehen, ihre Musik veröffentlichen können.
    (Ich kann mir schon denken, was in dem Kleingedruckten steht. ;D ;D ;D Siehe Youtube.com :lol)
    Da wirds musik, videos, tour-daten, biografien und so weiter geben.


    Jeden Monat wird es als Bonus ein paar ausgesuchte Lieder aus dem Sony ATV Katalog geben.
    Fürs erste wird es das ganze nur für Handys geben.
    Die ersten Handys mit diesem M-Buzz Feature werden W850 und W950 Walkman® phones sein. (Los Brad, wenn du ganz schnell läufst, bist du der erste am Handy-Regal im Media Markt! ;D )


    M-Buzz wird am Anfang auf 20 Märkten (Ländern) gestartet, wo die Technologie zum vollständigen, gesicherten Übertragen von Musik-Dateien (Sony Ericsons PlayNow Service) vorhanden ist.


    Im großen und ganzen wars das. Ansonsten ist da viel Geschleime zwischen Sony ATV und Sony Ericson in den Statements. :D

  • Sony Ericsson startet Musik-Downloaddienst


    19.09.2006


    STOCKHOLM - Der Handy-Hersteller Sony Ericsson stellt mit „M-BUZZ“ einen neuen Musik-Downloadservice vor, mit welchem das Unternehmen gegen konkurrierende Angebote aus dem Hause Apple & Co zu Felde ziehen will. „M-BUZZ“ wird auf einer Weiterentwicklung des PlayNow-Services basieren und soll vor allem junge und aufstrebenden Künstlern eine Plattform geben.
    Die ersten Mobiltelefone, welche mit M-BUZZ ausgeliefert werden, sind die Walkman-Modelle W850 und W950, so Sony Ericsson. Die genannten Modelle sollen in Europa, Asien und in Lateinamerika noch während des zweiten Halbjahres 2006 ausgeliefert werden, heißt es bei dem schwedisch-japanischen Duo.


    Zunächst werden jedoch nur eine begrenzte Anzahl von Künstlern und Musik-Bands aus dem Sony/ATV Music Publishing Repertoire zum Download bereitstehen. Später soll M-BUZZ um weitere Features erweitert werden, heißt es bei Sony Ericsson.


    Dem Markt für Musik-Handys werden in den nächsten Jahren traumhafte Wachstumsraten bescheinigt. Die Marktforscher aus dem Hause Strategy Analytics gehen davon aus, dass im Jahr 2010 rund 800 Mio. Handys mit einem integriertem Music-Player ausgeliefert werden, nachdem es in diesem Jahr rund 100 Mio. Musik-Handys sein dürften.


    Sony Ericsson ist ein Gemeinschaftsunternehmen des japanischen Elektronikkonzerns Sony Corp (WKN: 853687) und dem schwedischen Telekomspezialisten Ericsson (WKN: 850001). Beide Unternehmen halten jeweils die Hälfte der Anteile an dem Unternehmen. (ami)

  • Was mich bei diesem Einkauf mit Bashir damals so fasziniert hat, war nicht die Tatsache, dass er so viel kaufte...
    Es war viel mehr die Tatsache, dass er aus dem Kopf ZIG Sachen wusste, die er im Voraus aus dem Katalog bestellt hatte.
    Er hat ja nich gesagt ich will das, das und das. Sondern wir haben das, das und das bestellt.
    Zwischendurch hat er zwar auch gefragt, ob man das oder jenes bestellt habe (und wenn nicht, dann will er es haben), aber das war wirklich nur vereinzelt so.
    Ein weiteres Mysterium. :looking
