VIENNA MUSIC BUSINESS RESEARCH DAYS

VIENNA MUSIC BUSINESS RESEARCH DAYS

Vienna Music Business Research Days is an annual academic conference, run in conjunction with the Vienna Waves Festival. The conference brings scholars from many disciplines together with music business professionals in Vienna each year. The conference provides a platform for the presentation of the latest music business research, and a forum for debate and the exchange of ideas.

 

The field of music business studies is multidisciplinary; scholars who research the economics of the arts, musical creativity, the sociology of music, the law, culture and technology come together for this event in order to enhance our understanding  of the creation, dissemination, and reception/consumption of music.

 

The 2017 conference theme was “Unchaining the Digital Music Business?” The conference was held at the University of Music and Performing Arts Vienna from September 12-14, 2017. Over the past few years new gate keeping processes in the digital music business have emerged and international music business experts, therefore, are highlighting the role of new and old gatekeepers as well as the impact of innovative technologies such as block chains on structures and processes in the music business.
