Weiteres zu den erwünschten Anforderungen:

“The past 15 years have proven transformative for music recording
industries around the world, as digital technologies from the ground up
(mp3s) and the top down (streaming platforms) have helped transform the
landscape of production, promotion, distribution, retail, and fandom.
Yet while these transformations have recently upended assumptions about
musical practice for artists, industry workers, fans, journalists, and
researchers, a broader historical perspective situates them in a legacy
more than a century long. Indeed, a history of recording industries told
from a media and technology perspective is one of constant flux. The
introduction of new media technologies has continually reorganized the
practices, regimes of value, discourses, and power relationships of the
recording business.

This issue of the Creative Industries Journal seeks to address the
constitutive roles of technologies in shaping recording industry
practices. How have the introduction and adoption of new tools of
production, distribution, promotion, or consumption facilitated changes
in the creative and industrial practices surrounding popular music in a
variety of global contexts? Following Williamson & Cloonan (2007) and
Sterne (2014), we specify “recording industries” instead of “music
industries” to focus attention on the myriad creative and industrial
processes related to music (or, broadly, sound) recordings, and to evade
the tendency to group a variety of disparate music and sound-related
industries (licensing, instrument sales, live performance) under one
heading. We use the plural to assert the multiplicity and variety of
recording industries that have emerged over time, which may not have
anything to do with the current corporate-owned, multinational recording

Possible topics for this issue include, but aren’t limited to:

* Connections between technological formats and genres
* Streaming services and music distribution
* Discourses surrounding the vinyl record resurgence
* Collectors and collecting practices
* Record stores and the recording industries
* New technologies and global/local regimes of representation
* Music, technology, and identity
* Industry practices of the digital music era
* Trade papers and the recording industries
* Media mobility vs. audio fidelity
* Sound recordings and radio
* Television and the recording industry
* Failed or ephemeral formats
* Re-issues and new formats
* Record label histories
* Technological experimentation
* From cylinder to disk
* Recordings as material culture
* The history of personal recordings
* Internationalization of recording technologies/industries
* The recording industry and children’s media
* Spoken-word phonography
* Taste-making and technologies
