Introducing our guests: George Musgrave (University of Westminster/UK)

The 8th Vienna Music Business Research Days from Sep. 12-14, 2017 are devoted to the question “Unchaining the Digital Music Business?”. Over the past few years new gatekeeping processes in the digital music business have emerged and international music business experts, therefore, highlight the role of new and old gatekeepers as well as the impact of innovative technologies such as the blockchain on structures and processes in the musis biz. Find the program here.

George Musgrave will be talking on “Control and Autonomy in the Digital Music Business” in Joseph-Haydn Hall from 11:45-12:45 on September 14, 2017. George Musgrave is a Senior Lecturer at the Faculty of Media, Arts and Design of the University of Westminster. He also lectures at Goldsmiths, University of London. George earned his PhD with “Creativity, Capital and Entrepreneurship: The Contemporary Experience of Competition in UK Urban Music” (external examiner was Prof. Keith Negus) from the the ESRC Centre for Competition Policy at the University of East Anglia.  He is an expert on researching the role of  intermediaries in the music industry, but he also highlights mental health and working conditions for musicians (see paper) in a current research project.

George Musgrave is also a practising musician signed to Atlantic Records and a songwriter for EMI/Sony-ATV publishing. He performed live at Reading Festival, Leeds Festival and Wireless (Olympic Park) and he is the winner of MTV Brand New 2012 as the first ever unsigned act.
