3 - 3:30 PM
Session 1: Off the Charts: Examining Musicians’ Revenue Streams
In 2010-11, Future of Music Coalition conducted a multi-method, cross-genre research project to assess how US-based musicians’ revenue streams are changing in this new music landscape. Project co-director Kristin Thomson will provide attendees with some “bottom-up” data about musicians’ revenue streams. Drawing from findings from an online survey, interviews and financial case studies that collected data from thousands of musicians, attendees will get a fresh perspective on music sales and licensing, seen through the lens of the musicians and composers themselves.
