Alex Scally, Instrumentalist the indie-pop due beach house, notes that
when bands take on corporate sponsors they may lose the image they have
worked to create, Artists should not use their music In advertising
because of the payment they receive from fans streaming their music.
First
of all, one disadvantage of using music in an advertisement is it
creates a synchronized message that brands hope will induce purchase of
their products. For Example in source 2 selling out not the worth the
risk in paragraph 7 “ This can be tremendously stressful for artists who
are just starting to build their careers, as they need to speed energy
creating good music and a unique image that appeals to fans”.
Additionally, when a commercial misuses a popular song, it can confuse
the target market and reduces the chance of purchase. To support this in
source 1 the changing Landscape of the music business in paragraph 2 “
According to date journalist David McCandless, a signed solo artist
would need about 5,478 iTunes download of a song per month versus
4,200,000 YouTube streams per month just to make the U.S minimum wage. I
oppose the use of an artist’s music in advertising. Why? Because of
business because artists use a lot of money for their music especially
since they have a lot of fans and a lot would argue when an album would
sell out saying that it would sales. The artists themselves would not
even gain that much money for when selling an album.
Second
of all, I argue the use of musicians being advertising in commercials
or promoting and gaining money. To start “ Should Musicians change their
tune” They should not performers in advertisements In addition in
source 2 selling out is not worth the risk in paragraph 10 It states
that “ The music business is just that- a business, it exists to make
money in order to continue making music.” some artist either grow their
career or just give up if artist turn’s down a corporate sponsorship or a
licensing agreement this could be a mistake but they say it is a smart
way to get into the music business. For instance in source 3 the new
necessity in the music business In paragraph 15 it says “ For artists
serious about their careers, turning down any form of corporate
sponsorship or licensing agreements could be a mistake and at times,
it’s not necessary, but smart way to make it in today’s music business.
