Music Rights on Tour, with JacobTV

12 November 2021 | 15:00 - 16:00Kleine zaal | livestream

Many musicians and composers struggle with music and rights issues from time to time. What are copyright laws? What are neighbouring rights? Who should be registered at Buma/Stemra? Do I get money for live shows from Sena? To answer these questions and more, Buma/Stemra and Sena present Music Rights on Tour. During this session they are joined by Buma Classical Award-winning composer JacobTV. His new song cycle, The Freedom Songs, is premiering at November Music 2021. Hosting the talk is artist manager and music rights connaisseur Martijn Crama. He will speak with Jacob about his internationally successful career as a composer and as a musician. Through sidenotes, Buma/Stemra and Sena will provide information about copyright and neighbouring rights. How does Jacob benefit from music rights, and how does he arrange this all for himself? This panel is for everyone who would like to know all about music rights and is eager to learn how not to leave their hard-earned money on the table.

Silvia Biemans (accountmanager relations, Sena, NL)
Sena manages the rights of artists and producers. These rightsholders receive payment when their music is played in public, thanks to the music-licenses that companies and organizations buy from Sena.
Silvia has been working as an Accountmanager Relationship Management at Sena since 2017. Within this position, Silvia is responsible for maintaining contact with key accounts and rightholders. She also travels through the Netherlands (online & physically) to clear up questions about Sena from and for (future?) rightsholders. You can find Silvia at mostly all national events, but also smaller events and giving masterclasses at schools & universities.
Do you have a question about neighboring rights at home or abroad? Do not hesitate to contact Silvia!

Jacob ter Veldhuis (composer, JacobTV, NL)
Dutch ‘avant pop’ composer JacobTV (Jacob ter Veldhuis, 1951) started as a rock musician and studied composition and electronic music with Luctor Ponse and Willem Frederik Bon at the Groningen Conservatoire. He received the Composition Prize of the Netherlands in 1980 and became a full time composer.
An anthology of his work on CD/DVD was released 2007 at a 3 day JacobTV festival at the Whitney Museum of American Art in NYC. JacobTV is considered an ‘outlaw’ in new music, whose work ‘makes many a hip-hop artist look sedate’ (Wall Street Journal).
The self-proclaimed ‘avant pop composer’ won the first Buma Classical Award in 2016 for the best selling classical export product from the Netherlands. With his continually updated reality opera THE NEWS he has been touring worldwide, his ballet music sounds from Moscow to Chicago. JacobTV is nowadays one of the most performed European composers.
