Music Usage Metrics and the
Future of the Australian Music Industry
This research project - supported by the Australian Research Council and three industry partners - conducts a comprehensive and systematic examination of changing music consumption patterns in Australia in an era of digital disruption. The project supports the future growth of the Australian music industry by using innovative computational methods to develop and test evidence-based models for generating, sharing and distributing music revenues. It also examines the current and future uses of music usage data in decision-making processes in music organisations, as well as the potential consequences of such use for practitioners and industry stakeholders.
