Digital music: production, distribution and consumption

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


Music culture is undergoing rapid change on a number of levels: the production of sounds, their distribution and consumption, and the broader music industry, are all being transformed by digital technologies, in line with social and cultural patterns. Shifts in musical culture are occuring on a global scale, though the rate and nature of change is subject to geographical variation. The aim of this chapter is to focus on the impact that digital technologies have wrought upon the musical landscape, as well as to probe some of the theoretical issues that such changes have given rise to.
