    How Metadata Makes Money for Songwriters

    Let's get to the nitty gritty of songwriting by stripping down to its skeleton: metadata.

    Thursday, Oct 19, 2017 10:00 - 12:00 PM @ 2112
    This event is over! Please check the 2021 schedule.
    LAB - Labs bring together small groups for an exclusive, first-hand look into what happens behind the scenes at some of the most innovative companies, community leaders and institutions around Chicago.

    Jammber is a company dedicated to streamlining the process for emerging songwriters. Recently, Jammber & Nielsen partnered to track songwriter contributions. Join them for a hands-on experience that unlocks the mystery of metadata, explaining how source tags can turn into huge dividends for young artists. They'll unpack all the moving parts of a song "from conception to release” and how to make some money once it goes out into the world.
