IFPI and RIAA 2013 Music Sales Figures – There are positive signs but overall they make for troubling reading. Total sales were down 3.9%. Based on 2012 numbers the trend suggested that 2013 revenues should have registered a 2% growth, so that is a -6% swing in momentum. Digital grew by 4.3% which was not enough to offset the impact of declining CD sales, which has been the story every year since 2000 except last. Download sales declined by 1%. Continued competition from apps and other entertainment, coupled with subscriptions poaching the most valuable download buyers is finally taking its toll. Subscriptions up by 51%: An impressively strong year for subscriptions but not enough to make the digital increase bigger than the physical decline on a global basis nor in key markets, including the US.

Music and Birmingham’s Digital Culture Future





Music and Birmingham’s Digital Cultural Future – Across Birmingham, new strategies are being developed that will look at the contribution music could make to the cultural and digital future of the city. Birmingham Music Network is leading an independent debate at this month’s Creative Networks event that will examine the issues, ask questions and challenge the preconceptions of the local music industry on what role music can play in this emerging landscape.

Birmingham City Council is currently researching issues surrounding the promotion of Birmingham as a music destination.  This debate is set to cover these issues and the wider areas of live music performance, music archive, the music industry and the support of the local scene.

Those taking part represent a wide array of opinion and experience, they include:

Robin Valk, long time a part of BRMB and developer of the Music Pilot Project (an archive that champions new local music);
Dr Paul Long, a reader in media and cultural history at BCU and the active presence behind many regional cultural archive projects;
Andy Derrick, an award winning professional performer, composer and music educator;
Abi Seabrook, a community and professional musician, also an active member and passionate advocate of the Musicians’ Union.

The Music Network, Birmingham, 2008

The Music Network organises a NETWORKING EVENT on the last Thursday of each month, for the benefit of music related businesses in the West Midlands region. If you have any involvement in music, come and talk about what you’re up to and meet some new people. These Networking events are about all things music in the region. They’re about helping you to teach yourself how to do it, by yourself, for yourself and encourages you to share the knowledge with others so they can do the same.  If you are a musician, a student, someone who works with musicians, represents musicians, has involvement with the music industry, or are looking to make new contacts…..the meeting will be useful.

If you have news to report, a presentation to give, an event to promote, any new points for discussion, a pitch to make, business cards or flyers to hand round, an appeal for help, advice or guidance or even if you just want the free tea and biscuits and some serious discussion…you are invited.

You can also post in by email any news or gig dates or press release information for inclusion on the website and for distribution through the mailing list and RSS feed. More details on the website.

There will be luxury chocolate biscuits and good coffee for all. There’s food and drink afterwards supplied by the creative networks too. Please pass this invite on to Musicians you know or anyone else who you think may benefit.
