Seminar 5: On the road again: Live music in the digital age

Presenter: Christian Peukert, HEC Lausanne (Faculty of Business and Economics at University of Lausanne) (joint work with Jörg Claussen and Franziska Kaiser )

Abstract: We discuss how changes in remuneration models in the music industry, from stealing to owning to renting, have affected the income of artists and changed incentives to produce live performances. We illustrate the effect of live performances on artist income by studying the impact of live performances on music listening. Data from the online music service lets us track individual-level listening and concert-going behavior. Canceled concerts provide a quasi-experimental setting to study the causal impact of exposure to live performances on attendees’ listening behavior. We find that even long after giving a concert, artists still enjoy a considerable increase in music plays.
