Music Business and the Experience Economy: The Australasian Case is the first book on the music business in Australasia from an academic perspective. Using a cross-disciplinary approach, the contributions deal with a wide-range of topics. These include the production, distribution and consumption of music in the digital age. The interrelationship of legal, aesthetic and economic aspects of the production of music in Australasia is highlighted in the book as well as the emergence of new business models, the role of peer-to-peer file sharing, and the live music sector. Additionally the authors in the volume discuss the impact of the digital revolution on music experience and valuation, the role of music for tourism and for branding, and (last but not least) developments in the study of music in higher education.
