Production and Consumption of Music in the Digital Age (Hardcover)
About this item
This volume examines the evolving conditions and spatial dynamics of music production, promotion, distribution, and consumption in the contemporary digital age. It explores how new technologies, organizational forms, market dynamics and consumer behavior are restructuring the music industry at multiple scales (from global firms to local entrepreneurs) and in multiple spatial settings (from established clusters and burgeoning scenes to online environments), and charts the interconnected sonic ecosystem of cities, scenes, venues, festivals, record shops, and online communities that has emerged in the wake of the "MP3 Crisis."
