"Time Will Burn", Otavio Sousa e Marko Panayotis

10:00 - 18:00

2016, 80min.

Time Will Burn tells the almost forgotten history of the Brazilian alternative rock at the beginning of the 90s. Independent bands that played their guitars at high volume, sang in english and produced their own shows were responsible for the making of an urgent and visceral music scene that got the attention of the media.

An intense period in the Brazilian music starred by bands such as Pin Ups, Killing Chainsaw, Second Come and Mickey Junkies. A chapter that was hidden is finally captured in a documentary.

"Tecla Tónica", Eduardo Morais

10:00 - 18:00

2016, 100min.

Electronic music is twice as old as rock n’ roll and, in Portugal, before its commercial emergency, many were the intervenients that tried to broaden their musical lexicon.

“Tecla Tónica” explores the alchemy of electronic music in Portugal and its intervenients whilst drawing the genesis of a machine like a synthesizer.  Registering the timeline of the technological evolution of the genre, this documentary travels through 80s electronic pop, by the emersion of sampling, culminating in the dancefloor’s freedom. Directed and produced by Eduardo Morais, the documentary comes from a sinergy between himself and Jameson Irish Whiskey during the year of 2015 and features musicians like Carlos Maria Trindade, José Cid, Carlos Zingaro, Vítor Rua, Tó Pereira, Moullinex and many others that represent this genre in Portugal.

Rethinking the digitalization of music: are streaming services providing another way of being indie?

14:00 - 15:00

The digitization of music changed the way we consume and produce music, thought as more democratic and accessible. With the emergence of streaming services, artists can benefit from these platforms where it’s possible to distribute music at low cost, giving them the means that rule out the need to be associated with any publisher or other intermediary. But can we talk about independence?

In a period in which the freedom of the Internet and the limits of its neutrality are at stake, we aim to discuss whether the digitization of music has given way to the democratization of music, allowing another form of indie being and its limits. Given the importance of metadata management, it will also be discussed and metadata are addressed by these services and how can artists benefit from them.

The importance of venues in the cultural fabric of a city

15:30 - 16:30

Small and medium-sized music venues play a vital role in a healthy urban ecosystem, fomenting the development of a local ethos and creating tourism opportunities. Besides that, venues are spaces of experimentation where artists are given the opportunity of gaining audiences, contributing crucially to the establishment of specific music circuits. However, this portion of live music sector is being affected by cultural policies that tend to favour music festivals and arenas.

The role of music venues in energizing the city’s cultural fabric is discussed by Sérgio Hydalgo from Galeria Zé dos Bois, Philip Kolvin QC, Former Charmain of London’s Nigh Time Comission, and Audrey Guerre from Live DMA, an european network focused on promoting and defending the live music sector. Paulo Furtado (The Legendary Tigerman), an established artist that continues to prefer tours around small and medium-sized venues, will also take part in this talk.

Music Moves Europe – The EU's ambition for the music sector

11:30 - 12:30

While the EU is at a crossroads between conflicting political visions, the debate on European values and identity has never been higher on the agenda. Culture, once a non-subject in the EU policy debate, is becoming a hot topic in this context. And music, being one of the biggest cultural and creative sectors, is now at the center of the stage.

“Music Moves Europe” is the action carried out by the European Union to pave the way for a fully-fledged European music funding programme after 2020. Initially developed in 2016 through meetings with key European music industry stakeholders to identify the main challenges facing the sector, this ambition action has received funding from the European Parliament to develop pilot activities in 2018. In times of changing dynamics in the industry, the Music Moves Europe action could dramatically change the way music operators are supported, funded and promoted at European level and beyond.

Our high-level panel of speakers will address the EU’s new strategy to support the music sector, the various challenges ahead, and the ambitious goal to set up the first ever European funding instrument for all the branches of the music ecosystem.
