Iconoclaste Music is a Canadian research and development corporation based in the province of Quebec. It specializes in issues related to music and new media. Its founder, Jean-Robert Bisaillon, is vice-president of the Songwriters Association of Canada and director on the board of SOCAN. In 2013 he obtained a masters degree and Innovation Prize at INRS in Montreal, on the topics of music metadata and knowledge mobilization. Since then, Iconoclaste is focusing its efforts on developing TGiT, a software based metadata ecosystem. The project also promotes the notions of open innovation and co-construction, based on the actual needs of the music value chain as a whole, and also primary rights holders, songwriters, music composers, performers and indie labels, as first users.
