Musikbranche

Hvorfor puls?

  • Arbejder du i musikbranchen kan du være med til at understøtte udviklingen af Norden som marked for artister og musikeksport.
  • Norden som musikmarked og arbejdsmarked rummer et stort potentiale. Sammenlagt har de nordiske lande den 12. største økonomi i verden og der findes en lighed mellem landene, fx når det gælder kulturstøttestrukturer, arbejdsmarkedsstruktur og kulturkonsumption, som gør det muligt at anskue livemusikkens muligheder for udvikling ud fra et større perspektiv end det nationale.
  • At udvikle koncertarrangørfeltet på nordisk niveau er uhørt vigtigt for udviklingen af musikken i Norden. Men vi har kunnet se, at musikken ikke agerer meget mellem de nordiske lande. Det betyder, at publikums kendskab til musik fra andre nordiske lande er begrænset. I dag skal man slå igennem på internationale hitlister, for at slå igennem i Norden.

    Her får netop livemusikken en helt central rolle, fordi her kurateres mødet mellem kunsten og publikum. Samtidig vender vi det traditionelle blik på musikeksport på hovedet og fokuserer på en synkroniseret import af musik fra andre nordiske lande via arrangørenes arbejde. 
  • Med Puls etablerer vi med andre ord et nordisk turnénetværk for artister, hvor man kan komme i kontakt med flere scener i andre lande og møde et nyt og meget større publikum.

 

Som udgangspunkt støtter Puls spillesteder og festivaler. Vi har dog også støttet promotere, der arbejder konkret med nordiske artister og samarbejder med spillesteder. Puls-programmet er designet til at støtte koncerter gennem koncertstøtte til koncertarrangørerne. Det giver spillestederne og festivalerne en mulighed for at nå et andet punkt for break-even. Samtidig har vi et krav om, at der skal være professionel aflønning af artisterne.

 

Puls arbejder også målrettet mod markedsføringen af de artister, som er med i programmet, og her er det vigtigt at hele musikbranchen er med. Vi arbejder fx med cross-posting-strategier, hvilket betyder, at alle deler de posts om koncertarrangørernes puls-koncerter. Dermed når man ud til en langt større skare af potentielt publikum, interesserede og i musikbranchen som sådan. 

Sådan arbejder du med crossposting

Vi hjælper jer med at komme i gang med Facebooks marketingværktøjet crossposting (krydsopslag).

Crosspostingg er en nem måde at dele videoindhold med dine samarbejdspartnere, såsom sponsorer, kunstnere og agenturer. Værktøjet er nemt at implementere og favorabelt, når du har mange forskellige samarbejdspartnere, som I ønsker skal dele videoen og herved få jeres fælles begivenhed bemærket.

Med facebooks crossposting har du mulighed for at:

  • Nå et nyt publikum gennem dit eksisterende facebook publikum
  • Undgå overbelastning eller overførelse af store filer - Med crossposting uploader du videoen én gang og gør den tilgængelig for alle dine samarbejdspartnere
  • Se de aggregerede data for alle de videoer, som deles fra individuelle sider

Tutorial og video

Vi har lavet en video tutorial, hvor vi viser, hvordan du sætter crossposting -funktionen op. Videoen vil også vise dig, hvordan du etablerer crossposting -relationer med dine samarbejdspartnere, og hvordan du distribuerer videoindhold. Se tutorial video.

ALICE

Danmark

ALICE is Copenhagen's new powerhouse for adventurous music and is powered by the people and forces behind Global & Jazzhouse. ALICE will carry on the artistic ambitions– presenting a bold and high quality program of global roots, jazz/improv, electronic music, sonic experiments and much more. For the PULS shows, ALICE puts a strong focus on Nordic curators, reflecting not only a vibrant Nordic scene for bands/musicians but also emphasizing artistic collectives, labels and other curators of experimental music in the Nordic countries.

So far the PULS events have been held at Jazzhouse in downtown Copenhagen. We are now creating the new venue ALICE – a merge between Jazzhouse & the world music-venue Global. ALICE will open in February 2018 on Global's current adress on Nørrebro. The main part of our concerts will be held in the 250 cap. venue. However, a significant aim of ALICE is also to present concerts in external venues, to create unique live experiences and expand on a dialogue with other curators, festivals and more.

Eistnaflug Festival

Island

Eistnaflug has been held annually since 2005 and is the biggest of its kind in Iceland i.e. festival where the main focus is heavy metal, rock and other alternative music. Every night we dance but on Saturday night we DANCE. Eistnaflug is a platform for music business people from around the world to meet and scout new bands. The festival is in cooperation with other Nordic festivals with a project called Nordic Metal Exchange. This platform and cooperation has given Icelandic bands the opportunity to play outside of Iceland and in some cases get a record deal. Our motto is ”no idiots allowed.

Second weekend in July the population of Neskaupsstaður in East Iceland more than doubles when festival visitors and metal heads sweep into the small town. Neskausptaður is as far away from the Capital Reykjavík as you can go in the East direction.  There are also off venues in garages, pubs and in an old steal factory. In the factory the focus is more on art and art performance.

Iceland Airwaves

Island

Celebrating its twentieth year in 2018, Iceland Airwaves Festival is the world’s most northerly music showcase and industry festival, situated halfway between North America and Europe. Iceland Airwaves brings together the country’s brightest emerging musical talent and forward-thinking international acts.

Each November for four days and nights, downtown Reykjavík comes alive, filled non-stop with music, with performances hosted everywhere from tiny record stores and art museums, to cool bars and stately churches, to nightclubs and large scale venues.

For two decades Airwaves has shone a spotlight on new talent, with early appearances from the likes of Mac DeMarco, James Blake, Sufjan Stevens and others, along with many local luminaries such as GusGus, múm, Singapore Sling, FM Belfast, Of Monsters and Men, Ásgeir, sóley, Sin Fang, Kaleo, Mugison and Retro Stefson, all of whom have gone on to great success.

Launched in 1999 as a one-off event in an airplane hangar, Airwaves has since become Iceland’s longest-established festival and best recognised music brand, and an integral part of Reykjavík’s yearly cultural calendar.

Iceland Airwaves is now promoted and produced by the concert company Sena Live, with support by Iceland’s national airline and founding sponsor, Icelandair, and in cooperation with the City of Reykjavík.

Amen.”

We Jazz

Finland

We Jazz is an event first established in 2013 to present a selection of the best contemporary jazz music. Both foreign and domestic artists spread around Helsinki to perform during this week of concerts. The producers at We Jazz make an effort to continually discover new spaces for music and many of the venues change from year to year. The pairing of artists and venues is aimed at creating the best possible context for the music at hand. This is why many of the We Jazz venues are quite small. In addition to introducing the best possible music, We Jazz aims to challenge and renew the ways of presenting jazz. Music is often at its best when experienced at short range and quality before quantity is what We Jazz wants to present. Every concert is a handpicked and thought-out piece of the bigger picture. We Jazz is often referred to as a festival and as Helsinki’s biggest annual jazz event, there’s no denying that We Jazz is exactly that.

The event takes place in December when there’s not much else going on. While the timing offers a break from Christmas shopping and some relief into the winter darkness, it also permits an annual glance back at the year of jazz. This year the event spreads over Helsinki in 16 different locations during December 2–9. Many topical artists with fantastic 2018 releases are present in the lineup. We Jazz is a cross-section of the current music but also a collection of timeless jazz across the broad spectrum of styles.
