banging in november
November is going crazy for Ed Banger Records! They signed the supercool electronic duo Cassius, their star Uffie is releasing her own collection with Diesel and a couple of new wicked OSTs have freshly landed in stores. Mr. Oizo & Gaspard Auge of the duo Justice wrote the music for the film Rubber, while the electronic magician SebastiAn created a soundtrack for the film “Notre jour viendra” directed by Romain Gavras (son of a famous director Costa Gavras, and the director of the Justice documentary “A Cross the Universe”).
IDM Music subpublishes the Ed Banger artists for the territory. We happy!
IDM Music once again in Hollywood
Few days ago in the theaters across Europe a new Hollywood hit “The American” started airing, for which soundtrack IDM Music licensed the composition “Timmy” by the famous Italian composer Ennio Morricone.
The film, in which George Clooney plays the main role, is directed by photographer Anton Corbijn, known for directing the music videos for Nirvana, Metallica and Depeche Mode, as well as for directing the film “Control” about life of Ian Curtis, frontman of the band Joy Division.
The composition “Timmy” is originally part of the soundtrack composed for the cult western from 1968, “Once Upon a Time in the West”, by Sergio Leone.
After “Kill Bill”, “Inglorious Basterds” “Godfather III” and other important titles of the world of film, with this deal IDM Music confirmed once again an important role it has in creating the sound coulisses of the seventh art.

With the arrival of the EU, the countries in the region are forced to adapt their law on copyright and intellectual property. How fast will we adapt to new legislations, what are the changes that have already been made and how is copyright going to be regulated in the age of new technologies and distribution channels? All of the questions above stirred quite a discussion between the ‘Copyright Evolution’panel discussion participants, Kristina Delfin Kanceljak, Nenad Marčec, prof. dr. sc. Igor Gliha and IDM's president & CEO, Tomo in der Mühlen and audience members at this year’s Weekend Media Festival in Rovinj/Croatia. The audience also had the opportunity to hear how copyright and intellectual property is applied to music, written word, images, recordings and design in general.
The panel discussion also touched controversies – the issue whether copyright is endangering creativity, what about the Creative Commons movement, and is there a conflict between copyright and intellectual property on the one hand and the new generations of creative professionals and media consumers on the other.
The volume of the given practical advice from the experts who know the legislation and its usage on a case by case basis shows that the general audience and the creators - photographers, writers, journalist and musicians in the region aren't familiar with their rights and the true value of their works. Due to limited timing (the discussion was only 60 minutes, but continued way over the term) a lot of questions were left unanswered. However, this was a great introduction for all copyright newbies and those in search for intellectual and creative protection.
