Karen van der Stal – People behind the music // People of Stingray

Stingray’s Festival 4K channel in Europe looks and sounds as spectacular as it does thanks to Karen van der Stal. She takes great care in choosing exciting performances from festivals, orchestral concerts, DJ shows and circus acts. Moreover, she programs Channels and Vibes for the Stingray Music App. (These are two different kinds of playlists: Channels being longer and more often updated, and Vibes being shorter playlists following a given theme.)  
 
Karen holds a master’s degree in Musicology from the University of Amsterdam. She has been playing the violin since she was 7 years old and has been part of a bluegrass band for the last two years. Karen worked for Stingray DJAZZ when it was still called DJAZZ.tv, a position that allowed her to travel to jazz festivals and interview musicians. She loves poring over her record collection and listening to countless albums, in order to find the perfect song for a given playlist.

Karen van der Stal – Les gens derrière la musique // Les gens de Stingray

Si la chaîne Festival 4K de Stingray impressionne autant les téléspectateurs européens, c’est grâce à Karen van der Stal, qui choisit avec un soin méticuleux les meilleures performances tirées de festivals, de concerts, de DJ sets et de spectacles de cirque. Karen programme également des chaînes et des Vibes pour l’appli Stingray Musique. (Il s’agit de deux types de listes de lecture distincts : les chaînes sont plus étoffées et mises à jour plus fréquemment, tandis que les Vibes sont des compilations plus courtes élaborées selon un thème précis.)

"We wanted to do something more substantive so we put together a campaign to air and dedicate a certain amount of airtime to this equality message, and the message changes every few months."

L’importance de la musique sous licence pour les artistes en 2019

La musique joue un rôle crucial dans les commerces puisqu’elle permet d’installer une atmosphère; les commerçants peuvent ainsi s’en servir pour influencer le comportement des consommateurs. La musique influe notamment sur notre perception du temps que l’on passe à un endroit, ou sur notre conception du prix d’un vêtement ou sur un menu. Il y a toutefois un problème, et il s’agit de cette idée que tout est permis quand vient le temps de diffuser de la musique dans les lieux publics.
