Based on his paper "Moneyballing Music - Using Big Data to give Consumers what they really want and enhance A&R practices at Major Record Labels", Prithwijit Mukerji will introduce his thesis, followed by a discussion with Graham Ball (Lecturer, MA Music Business Management, University of Westminster) and Michela Magas (Director, Stromatolite; Founder, Music Tech Fest; Founder, Sonaris).
"Prithwijit's MA Music Business Management Project paper is an empirical study of the use of social media Big Data to better anticipate consumers’ tastes and better inform A&R processes and decision-making. This paper successfully analysed current business trends incorporating latest research and industry-based interviews and as such offers an overview of an emerging and exciting field of study."
