International Journal of Music Business Research – April 2017, vol. 6, no. 1

This April 2017 issue of the International Journal of Music Business Research (IJMBR) features one theoretical and two empirical papers on different aspects of music business research.

In the first article “A methodology for cultural music business research”, Lorenz Grünewald-Schukalla of the University of Applied Sciences of Media, Communication and Management Berlin proposes a promising methodology for cultural music business research. In the second article – “The impact of digitalisation on the recorded music consumption. An Estonian case study” – Juko-Mart Kõlar of the Estonian Business School in Tallinn analyses disparities in recorded music consumption among different age and gender groups in Estonia. The third article by Arilova A. Randrianasolo of the Boler School of Business at the John Carroll University in Ohio and Jeremiah Sala of the University of Missouri in Saint Louis link musicological analyses with econometrics. In “Song product characteristics and music commercial performance”, they investigate how tempo, song key and genre influence a song’s commercial performance. The book review by Daniel Nordgård of “The New Music Industries: Disruption and Discovery” by Diane Hughes, Guy Morrow, Sarah Keith and Mark L. Evans of Macquarie University Sydney rounds up the IJMBR’s April 2017 issue.

Geoff Luck The Experience Factor store images.004.jpegGeoff Luck of the Finnish Centre for Interdisciplinary Music Research at University of Jyväskylä recently published his new book “The Experience Factor” (see https://www.theexperiencefactor.net/).

From Adele to Zeppelin, every great song has an irresistible quality that keeps us coming back for more. But what exactly is it? And, more importantly, can it be quantified?
The Experience Factor reveals how hit songs stimulate our minds, capture our hearts and seduce our bodies to create irresistible, rewarding experiences we’re driven to repeat again and again. Underpinned by over 200 scientific studies, The Experience Factor includes more than one hundred musical examples to help illustrate the principles described. Representing some of the most successful music ever recorded, these tracks have sold over half a billion copies, been streamed more than 35 billion times, and generated a cool billion dollars in revenue.
If you love listening to music when driving, exercising, socialising or relaxing, discover the incredible ways your favourite tracks hack your basic instincts to keep you tuned-in. If you’re a songwriter, composer, artist or producer, discover how to achieve longterm success on streaming platforms by writing music that captivates listeners and keeps them listening over and over again. If you work with music in marketing & branding, sports, TV, movies or gaming, discover how to create immersive musical experiences with maximum emotional impact.

However you’re hooked on music, The Experience Factor will profoundly connect you with the soundtrack to your life.

Geoff Luck is Associate Professor at the Finnish Centre for Interdisciplinary Music Research at the University of Jyväskylä. An expert on music perception and cognition, his professional interests range from studying the science of sound and music to developing data-driven, engagement-enhancing concepts for the entertainment industry.
