Event Title

Finding Harmony: Why Communication Studies and the Music Industry (Should) Go Hand-in-Hand

Date

4-9-2022

Location

Schewel 2nd Floor Lobby

Description

The music industry is a vast network with a multitude of moving parts, relying fully on excellent communication to run smoothly. Without communication in many different capacities across an abundance of parties, there would be no music industry at all – no big artists, no concerts, and no streaming. This poster explores social events within the industry through the lens of a social scientist. What important interactions occur between an artist manager and an artist, a booking agent and a concert promoter, an artist and their huge audience? What human instincts can be observed in these interactions, and what can we do to limit room for error and miscommunication? Every part of the system has their own perspectives and goals, and each has to negotiate and create open dialogues to reach a satisfying compromise. With the general public being recently reconnected to concerts, music industry professionals must be prepared to practice exceptional communication in order to secure the prosperity of the post-pandemic music world.
