Music will be a core part to the new metalcon version. This will be achived in several ways.
- cc music will be integrated
- bands can provide their music and get some benefits
- more integration in metalcon radio / recommendation engines
- better promotion tools within metalcon
- possibility to place the metalcon player on othe websites / own website
- possibility to privatly share watermarked music with people in the industry. this software could be of help: http://www.metois.com/Eymwatermark/eymawmcmd.htm
- available music on soundcloud and youtube will be integrated and streamed through a personalized player
there might be more technical ways but in all cases metalcon will at most have the cost for streaming music.
Metalcon will create a rewardsharing business model for musicians. This means musicians will get payed by the community if people listen to music. the system will be very similar to http://flattr.com/
