Temple University, Japan Campus, 2009
With a fantastic group of students, I am conducting field work and experimental research in the virtual world of SecondLife, to identify future business opportunities for the music industry - something it's well in need of. Watch this space for more, very soon.
Joint work with: Scott Lockman (Temple University, Japan Campus)
"The music industry is in crisis — you’ve heard the news. But in the virtual world of Second Life, an alternative music economy is emerging. Already, real musicians are making a living by playing exclusively in Second Life, and music labels and clubs of a new kind are created every week. We have spent months researching the new musical trends in Second Life, and we’re bringing them to you in the form of snapshots, sounds, videos, interviews, and more. Come discover what music could become in the next 10 years."
