International Journal of Music Business Research – April 2020, vol. 9, no. 1

The April issue 2020 of the International Journal of Music Business Research (IJMBR) gathers for the first time four full articles on a broad variety of music business research topics. The journal issue opens with “Music marketing in the digital music industries – An autoethnographic exploration of opportunities and challenges for independent musicians” by Shane Murphy of Torrens University in Sydney/Australia. Through the use of an autoethnographic research method, Shane Murphy provides insights from the micro-perspective of an independent musician into the major major structural transformations that have occurred in the music business post-digitisation.

Tim Metcalfe & Nicolas Ruth (Goldsmiths College in London/UK) contribute the second article “Beamer, Benz, or Bentley: Mentions of products in hip hop and R&B music”. According to this article, cars, fashion and alcohol are the types of products most frequently mentioned in hip hop and R&B lyrics.

The third article by Dexter Purnell (MacMurray College, Jacksonville/US) “Closing the Gap: Understanding the Perceptual Differences Between Generations Regarding Music Streaming Technology” – focuses on the impact of music streaming technology and argues that, whilst music streaming has become the preferred method for recorded music consumption, there appears to be generational differences in the utilisation rate of the technology.

The fourth article “Where the magic people gathered The Role of Private Members Clubs in the Contemporary Music Economy” by Sam Edrisi (King’s College London and University of Westminster, London/UK) is the award winning paper of the Young Scholars’ Workshop 2019. It explores the increased popularity of a new type of private member club aimed at a crowd, which identifies with entrepreneurialism, independence, and creativity.

This issue rounds up with a book review by Daniel Nordgård of “Rockonomics: A Backstage Tour of What the Music Industry Can Teach Us about Economics and Life” by Alan B. Krueger, who sadly passed away in March 2019. “Rockonomics” was Alan’s last book in an outstanding body of works on economic issues related to education, labor markets and income distribution.

Music Business Research 2019 – in retrospective

Dear all,

Music streaming has been still on the rise in 2019 as an international market analysis highlights. However, a closer look unveils that in some markets – especially in Scandinavia (part 1, part 2, part 3) – the streaming markets have matured and will be soon saturated. Therefore we can expect a market consolidation in 2020 with some stand-alone music streaming services disappearing. Spotify seems to be “to big to fail”, however, it will rely on strong partners to back the Swedish company in rough sea.

The Universal Music Group (UMG) will have a strong partner in 2020. Today it was announced that a consortium led by Chinese Tencent Holdings will buy up a 10% stake of UMG from the French parent company Vivendi. Since the world`s largest recording company will be partly owned by a Chinese conglomerate this could be a game changer in the music industry and the Chinese recorded music market will become even more relevant for the international music business. This blog will be the place to analyse the new situation.

And Asia will be also in the focus of the 11th Vienna Music Business Research Days on “Emerging Music Markets”, which will be held from September 21-23, 2020 at the mdw – University of Music and Performing Arts Vienna. We expect keynotes on the Chinese, Indian and South Korean music markets as well as short presentations and panel discussion on several Eastern European markets. The call-for-paper for the Young Scholars’ Workshop on Sep. 21 and the Conference Track Day on Sep. 22 are already open for submissions of abstracts.
