Report: Calvin Harris earns an average job’s annual salary in as little as three hours

This post was originally published on this site

Forbes2017 report outlined the world’s 100 top-grossing celebrities, who collectively raked in $5.15 billion. Although various artists appeared at the very top of the list—Diddy notably occupied the #1 slot with $130 million—electronic artists too enjoyed representation on the list of the highest-paid personalities, with Calvin Harris then emerging as the highest earning DJ, boasting an income of $48.5 million. Tiësto and The Chainsmokers followed Harris with $39 million and $38 million, respectively.

In January 2018, Oxfam International released its annual inequality report, indicating that “In the US, it takes slightly over one working day for a CEO to earn what an ordinary worker makes in a year.” This claim would be the impetus for Magnetic Magazine to examine the income differentials between the world’s “top musicians and ordinary job workers.”

Magnetic enumerated the median annual salaries of five common jobs: truck drivers ($41,340/yr), elementary school teachers ($59,020/yr), registered nurses ($68,450/yr), real estate brokers ($79,340/yr), and software developers ($100,080/yr). Magnetic set out to determine “how long it would take the world’s best-paid musicians to earn annual salaries in these jobs,” and the mag’s findings, reflected in Magnetic’s infographic, prove astonishing.

It would take Harris a little over seven hours to accumulate what a truck driver makes in a year, slightly over ten-hours to collect a teacher’s yearly salary, and just over 12 hours to match the yearly pay of a registered nurse.

Tiësto would garner a truck driver’s yearly salary in nine hours and 17 minutes, a teacher’s in 13 hours and 15 minutes, and a nurses’s in 15 hours and 22 minutes. Hardly far behind, The Chainsmokers would follow suit in nine hours and 32 minutes, 13 hours and 36 minutes, and 15 hours and 48 minutes, when it came to earning the equivalent of a truck driver, teacher, and nurse’s salary, individually, leaving presumably all readers of Magnetic’s report with one question: is it too late to learn how to DJ?

Melody VR showcases its extensive library of concert footage at NYC launch event, including The Chainsmokers, Kygo, and Kaskade

This post was originally published on this site

Following the formal launch at Facebook‘s recent conference, UK-based Melody VR was featured at an Oculus Go launch event in Soho on Thursday. Members of the press were invited to experience the platform on one of the brand new Oculus Go wireless VR headsets. Dancing Astronaut had the chance to sit down with the company’s Chief Operating Officer, Steven Hancock, to learn more about the project.

Apparently Melody has worked with over 600 different artists to create and capture VR music content, which essentially involves recording 360 degree sound and audio from several different camera rigs in a venue. Melody has worked with The Chainsmokers, captured a private rooftop piano performance from Kygo, and says that one of their very first events was a club show a few years ago with Kaskade. It’s not just the artists that Melody VR has dealt with to make this happen – because of the complex nature of the music industry, they also had to sign deals with all of the major labels. Steven says that as a result, Melody VR is the only company that is authorized to go out and capture this kind of content from festivals and club venues. This should give them a good head start.

All of these concerts are available to purchase and download from the Melody VR store. Think of it like the iTunes store for VR. While this event was done in conjunction with Facebook/Oculus, Melody VR is actually available cross-platform: currently the Oculus Go and Samsung Gear VR, with plans to be available on Playstation, Windows, and more.

The wireless nature of the Oculus Go is a great step in the direction of making VR more accessible for the broader public, so content companies like Melody VR are anticipating the future growth and preparing accordingly. Looking at future technology themselves, Melody is already planning on capturing video footage in 8K and 12K. Getting an early demo of the content, it’s clear that as technology improves, the overall experience will become even smoother, seamless, and more immersive.
