Study day about the music economy
October 18th, 2016; from 9a.m to 6p.m
Auditorium A 330 – 1st cycle building (University of Evry Val d’Essonne)
Organizers: Fanny Gribenski, firstname.lastname@example.org and Etienne
All through this day, we will try, through specific studies concerning different times and areas, to ask questions often neglected in musicology: how did or do musicians live? What structural pressures are exerted on musical production? Public policies and patronage: are they a management of the musical market? The music economy and “free” music: what is at stake?
Papers presented this day will be followed by questions which will permit to underline the strong points after every approach developed by participants..
