SEMINAR: The future of the music industry in an age of digital distribution

QUT Creative Industries Research Seminar

Will online subscription music services like Spotify render traditional music distribution models obsolete? 

Join Dr Patrik Wikstrom on 23 August for a look at the future of the music industry in an age of digital distribution.

Dr Patrik Wikstrom will argue that ‘context based’ services that allow people to ‘do things’ with music have greater potential to create economic value than services that merely provide access. This has important implications for the production and distribution of music.
