Music is what our minds are thinking, our hearts are feeling, and our souls are judging. Indeed, it may be the greatest form of creativity known. We often express our listening experiences by laughing or crying, feeling heartbreak, love, sadness, longing, and every other emotion possible. It’s complicated! One person may experience a recording or a live performance as positive and exciting whereas another may find it revolting, and still another may not even notice it.
It’s the same for the artists and “suits,” who create, own, and manage the acts, recordings, videos, and songs we love and hate. However, they also hear another sound they love – the sound of the money they’ve earned “caching” in their bank account. The business of music and entertainment is all about how creative people and businesses cash in on consumer’s emotional connection to the recordings, shows, and other industry-related products monetized by the business. Subjects covered include digital music and entertainment production, costs, legal, publishing, labels, promotions, contracts, copyrights, publicity, artists representation, tours, promotors, merchandise and other aspects of the industry.
