This is a follow-up post to the german randform post “comment to gema-vs-youtube on Spreeblick” (and its partial translation) and the post “A digital agenda” which are amongst others concerned with the german collecting society GEMA.
In the german post the wish for a
“…“Musikanbietgenossenschaft” (oder ähnlichem)”…
i.e. for a “music collecting cooperative” was voiced. Such a cooperative seems now underway. According to the german Heise Online article: “Geplante GEMA Alternative sieht sich auf gutem Weg” a cooperative called Cultural Commons Collecting Society (C3S) is going to be established.
Especially important is here that the C3S initiative is thought to be europe-wide thus the digital agenda plays a role here. The Cultural Commons Collecting Society (C3S) is sofar only a gathering but – according to Heise – there are plans to form a european cooperative in the first half of 2013 and to be functionable in about 2 years. If you are musically active you can officially display your interest via signing a declaration of intent which is important for the representation in front of legal bodies like the german patent office. Tim (who is still a GEMA member) has already signed the declaration.
This is in part a little follow-up post to the last one concerning the WCIT conference.
I left a long comment at the Berlin city blog Spreeblick which discusses the role of commercial social media, their democracy and the Gema (the german perfomance rights organization). The comment is in german and you can read it also after the click.
Addition on 20.08.2012: A part of this comment which deals with social media and democracy can be found translated in the randform post “translation.”
In a randform comment section there is currently a little discussion about parenting, Amy Chua, education and self directed learning. This goes together with something which Tim called a “crazy plan”. That is he is currently voluntarily forcing himself to produce one music track per day for a whole month!

update 6.2.11: Here an image of yesterdays great show. Nora and Theresa Lantez dancing “Farruquita por las dos” as a fight of the generations.
(eventually some more images to come)
Short note for the Berlin locals. Theresa Lantez, featured in this randform post runs a show with her mother Nora Lantez on saturday. Nora Lantez is a professional balletdancer (education Berlin) with a 3 years extra specialization in “spanish dance”. The show “Flamenco- Impressions” is at Studiobühne at the FF Marzahn, music by Cayenne Katrin and Josè Ramirez.
Luckily, Christoph Schreiber of the workshop Konzertflügel, whose marvelous Salon Christophori – a series of music events – was featured already in this randform post has now -after a cumbersome six months search- found a new domicil for his workshop. The old workshop, which was rather central had to be closed due to gentrification. His new workshop is now in the famous Uferhallen (website) in the Berlin district of Wedding. Soheil Nasseri who is also featured in this randform post* is giving again a concert at Salon Christophori. He is going to play tomorrow the program, which he played at Carnegie Hall in October. Both Christoph and Soheil** are in need of some financial support so they hope many people will visit them at this not so central place.
Uferstr. 9-11, 13357 Berlin Wedding, 14.1. 2011, 20:30 Uhr
short note: My Flamenco teacher Theresa Lantez (here some more pictures) who gave lessons in an old ballroom in the same street as Christoph Schreiber needs to look for a new room (for the same gentrification reasons). If you know something you can send me or her a mail.
