Music Unchained - Blockchain for Music @ SXSW will investigate one of the music industries oldest problems: Reassurance of reliable, current and accessible documentation of copyright and ownership for artists, rights owners, and their advocates, as well as music licensees. Swift adaptation of the underlying administrative infrastructure to new environments shaped by technological innovation and last but certainly not least, the issue discussed most prominently (and emotionally): The need to address and facilitate fair, speedy and transparent distribution of royalties and revenue deriving from creative content to the artists and rights owners.
The promise of decentralized technologies and networks of distributed trust – such as Blockchain – could finally be the game-changer the ecosystem might need to reset.

Music Unchained is not your typical, average conference. It’s an event series that has knowledge transfer at its heart. It is an event series for those who actively participate in shaping the digital transformation of music and its industry. Each event brings together leading experts from different areas to discuss and investigate opportunities of new technologies for the recreation of the music ecosystem. Music Unchained is here to build those bridges in order to narrow down the knowledge gaps and value gaps to create a better understanding on how artists and the industry can benefit from new emerging technologies alike, enabling them to use the available tools and apply their strategies to the ever-changing environment.

MusicTech Germany, the Federal Association for Music Technology in Germany, gathers leading experts of Blockchain solutions, music industry veterans, lawyers, collecting society representatives, streaming service companies and artists to discuss the status-quo of possible Blockchain implementation, the opportunities for rights-holders and the industry, and the challenges that need to be mastered.

Music Unchained will take place at the German House on 7th street. Since the venue is rather small, space is limited, and RSVP is mandatory.
