IMIW : international music industry week



La semaine internationale de l’industrie du disque ne durera que deux jours (!), les 25 et 26 juin à Londres. Courte occasion d’accueillir "un combat de poids lourds" sous la forme d’un débat entre Peter Jenner, chairman de la fédération internationale des producteurs, et John Kennedy, président du syndicat international des managers.

La semaine prochaine, l’International music industry week (IMIW) rassemblera à Londres des professionnels de l’industrie de la musique enregistrée venus des quatre coins du monde. Stand d’exposition, showcase et lieu de rencontres, le salon accueillera également ce face à face dans une ambiance que l’organisateur veut électrique.

Communiqué (en anglais)
Keynote - Peter Jenner vs John Kennedy

Two of the industry heavyweights will battle it out on the IMIW stage at IMIW - one standing up for intellectual rights and one the rights of the performer and artist.

Both will discuss their extraordinary careers and the experiences that have carved the views they have today.

Peter Jenner was Director of Business Affairs for CBS UK (now Sony Music), CEO and Chairman of PolyGram UK, CEO and Chairman of Universal Music UK, CEO and President of Universal Music International and now CEO and chairman of the IFPI. He was legal advisor and trustee for Band Aid and produced the ten Live 8 concerts around the world in 2005 with Bob Geldof and Harvey Goldsmith.

And in complete contrast, John Kennedy managed Pink Floyd, Tyrannosaurus Rex, The Clash, Ian Dury and the Blockheads, Baaba Maal, Roy Harper and Billy Bragg to name but a few. He organized Free concerts in Hyde park culminating with the Rolling Stones in 1969, is previous Secretary General and now President Emeritus of the IMMF and a digital activist.

"I think we’re in a time of technology change, and a change in the business model. We have to go back to first steps. Someone has to write, record, and perform a song. On the other end we have to have someone who wants to listen to it, and wants to pay for it in some way or another. Everyone else in that process is in some way dispensable" Peter Jenner

Keynote 10.00 - 25 June 2009
