I am currently writing a report that looks at how music fans can be pulled into the creative process and how this dynamic can then be used to transform music release cycles, formats and products.
The report will look at how artists can use emerging digital and social tools to deepen engagement with their fans and how best practices can be turned into standard practices. This will encompass mash-ups, remixes, fan co-creation, fun-funding and fan-customization.
If you are an artist, or a provider of any such services and have experiences or case studies which you think would be valuable to include in the report then please email me at musicindustryblog AT gmail DOT COM.
The report will be available for free to readers of musicindustryblog.
