As some of you may have seen, I have been quiet on ye olde blogging front for just under 2 weeks, all for good reason. I am a third year university student, if any of you are or have been students you will know that your third year involves a mammoth dissertation. I am no exception and have spent the last couple of weeks painstakingly finalising my work. Luckily it is music related therefore I will be posting extracts here and there over the coming months. It was titled…
‘Artists and their Ecosystem: A Study into the Future of Music Consumption and Emerging Business Models in Regards to Physical Music.’
Anyway I would like to point you to some key texts I used for my research, this should be quite interesting to artists and labels:
1000 True Fans by Kevin Kelly
The Answer Is The Ecosystem by Bas Grasmayer
Both are really great reads and are really good starting points for anyone interested in new business models within the recorded music industry.
I have loads of new bands to get up, more on that soon…..
