Popular Music in the Post-Digital Age
Collapse All Sections

Popular Music in the Post-Digital Age explores the relationship between macro environmental factors, such as politics, economics, culture and technology, captured by terms such as ‘post-digital’ and ‘post-internet’. It also discusses the creation, monetisation and consumption of music and what changes in the music industry can tell us about wider shifts in economy and culture. This collection of 13 case studies covers issues such as curation algorithms, blockchain, careers of mainstream and independent musicians, festivals and clubs—to inform greater understanding and better navigation of the popular music landscape within a global context.
