Willemijn de Krey is a Dutch painter, musician, and occasional filmmaker living in Antwerp, Belgium.
We would like to validate our open source, open data, open collaboration based reproducible observatory concept with the Demo Music Observatory. All feedback is welcome.
CEEMID is conducing its 8th survey programme this among musicians, music professionals, and music managers. This is the largest empirical research program in the world about how people work and earn their living in the music industry.
Why? We are teaming up with some music organizations and research universities to form a Music Observatory, which will support all participant countries musicians with free data for royalty calculation, advocacy at government, tour scheduling and tour planning.
The data and intelligence of CEEMID was used in Hungary to create an ex ante evaluation of the new Cseh Tamás Program to support popular music development in Hungary. Our mandate was to create concrete granting proposals that have a high chance of making a change in terms of the later royalty earning capabilities of artists.
