[Music Monday] Taking OpenEMI’s Torch And Taking It Further #unresolved

On April 22-24, 2012, a conference aptly named Rethink Music was organized by the Berklee College of Music in Boston. They basically brought together professionals from all over the music industry – from media, from the music labels, from artist management, and even from technology companies like Youtube, Rhapsody and Echo Nest (you can look at the whole speaker roster here).

You can either request for a access to a wide range of songs, or request deeper access to single artists with more audio, video and other content.
