In the old days, if my records sold big numbers, it didn’t make any difference to the number of sales you had. In fact, if you had a big seller, it would bring a lot of people into record stores, and that increased the chances of selling my records. For reasons we’ll discuss later, the more listens you get, the less money I make. That’s because the music industry has changed more radically in the last few years than at any other time in its history.

You might be reading this thinking “good one Jenessa, what gigs have you been going to lately? Similarly, did something happen that night that didn’t on the rest of the tour? Setlist.FM can be helpful here, but also make use of your phone for notes – it’s much easier than squinting in the dark with a notepad and pen. If it’s appropriate to do so, take videos to log parts of the set that feel especially visceral – a watch back later will likely jog your memory better than an awkwardly scribbled note.

We also run a contemporary music group and organise weekly research seminars and concerts, so students can perform, exchange ideas and collaborate with other students and professional musicians. Following on from our Film Music History and the article on “What is Music”, we take a tongue-in-cheek look at some of the obvious Film Music Cliches which we all recognise.
