International Journal of Music Business Research – October 2017, vol. 6, no. 2

The first article of the October 2017 issue of the International Journal of Music Business Research (IJMBR), Innovation in the arts – lessons from the creation of Dalhalla” by Per Frankelius of Linköping University/Sweden, is an insightful case study of the Dalhalla opera festival in Sweden that was initiated and organised by the opera singer and retired radio producer Margareta Dellefors. The second article, “Collaborating to compete: the role of cultural intermediaries in hypercompetition” by George Musgrave of University of Westminster in London, employs an innovative methodological approach to examine the role that cultural intermediaries, such as radio DJs and journalists, play in the lives of three unsigned UK urban music artists. The concluding article of this journal issue, “Status quo and perspectives of licensing synchronisation rights” by Stephan Klingner and Julia Friedrich of Leipzig University/Germany, highlights the current state of music licencing and identifies the needs from the users’ perspective. The findings are drawn from interviews with representatives of synchronisation rights licensing platforms and production libraries. The book review by Dennis Collopy of “The Economics of Music” by Peter Tschmuck rounds up the IJMBR’s October 2017 issue.

Introducing our guests: Roxanne de Bastion (musician, London)

foto-roxanne-de-bastionThe 7th Vienna Music Business Research Days from Sep. 27-29, 2016 are devoted to “Self-Management in the Digital Music Business”. International music business experts, therefore, discuss the challenges and chances of artist self-management as well as the future development. Find the program here.

As a self-managed artist, the London-based musician Roxanne de Bastion completes the panel on “Self-Management in the Digital Music Busines” in Joseph Haydn-Hall on Sep. 29th from 15:30-17:00. The other panelists are: Steve Power (music producer, London), Keith Harris (manager of Stevie Wonder, London) and Johannes Ripken (music consultant, Kiel). The moderator of the discussion is Harald Hanisch, successful music producer and vice president of the Austrian Composers’ Society.

Roxanne de Bastion is a singer, songwriter and performer. Born in Berlin to a musical, bilingual family, she started composing and performing at the age of 15. Soon after, Roxanne took her career in her own hands and moved to London, equipped only with her guitar, her songs and a one-way ticket.

Since then, Roxanne has released her debut album “The Real Thing” on her own label, Nomad Songs, and regularly tours across the UK, mainland Europe and the USA. Her music has gained support from BBC6, Xfm, R2 Magazine, The Sunday Times as well as major radio stations across Europe and MTV Germany.

As an independent musician she offers insight into the everyday workings of life as an artist in today’s ever-changing industry and has been invited to speak on subjects such as ‘the future of music’, ‘copyright in the digital age’ and ‘music streaming’. In 2014, Roxanne was invited to join the board of the FAC in order to represent up-and-coming musicians. The following year, Roxanne founded FM2U, a conference and network specifically from and for independent musicians.
