The credibility of this site is minimal and biased as it is about torrenting which is used to pirate and share music and other files.

This might not come across as non-biased but I believe that it is very true. Though I do not condone piracy the data does support that when people can for free download and try out music they actually might buy other band stuff like t-shirts, bumper-stickers, and more.

Drexler J Hassell's curator insight, January 21, 10:23 PM

The charts show that the industry is not being affected by piracy but in my opinion I believe that as piracy grows the number sales in the entertainment industry will drop

Digital Music Sales Drop For First Time As Streaming Soars

Digital Music Sales Drop For First Time As Streaming Soars | Industry News | Scoop.it

MP3 digital download sales have gone down due to an increase in the use of applications such as Pandora, Spotify and iHeartRadio.  The decrease in even MP3 downloads hurts the artits' wallet in the long run since there are still arguments about proper compensation for streaming.  However to pay maybe $10 a month for a streaming service to give you unlimited music, it's easy to see why sales for music streaming applications have increased.

 

I am including this because Forbes magazine is a very popular and high end magazine.  The information presented in this article also matches that of Billboard's article.

Bailey Kane's curator insight, April 20, 2016 4:10 PM

Streaming is soaring above the hard coppies of music being made. The drop in hard copies serve as an issue  for the producers and makers of the music, since they spend tons of money making albums that people don't buy, but stream through pandora, or icloud, and more.

The Psychology of Music: Why Music Plays a Big Role in What You Buy

The Psychology of Music: Why Music Plays a Big Role in What You Buy | Industry News | Scoop.it

 

" There are three qualities of music that can influence buying behavior in a retail environment: tempo, volume and genre.  The individual effects we will see in each of these can be explained by Mehrabian and Russell’s model of pleasure-arousal-dominance (PAD). At its most basic level, this model posits that an environment can alter an individual’s mood and therefore behavior by altering levels of pleasure, arousal and/or dominance through different channels."

This article is about the effects tempo, volume, and genre has on people while shopping inside a store. I chose to scoop this article because it is related to music and I was interested in how music plays a role in what I decide to purchase. I believe the source of the article is reliable because they gave information about the studies conducted and who conducted the studies. 

Lexi Gatling's curator insight, February 16, 2014 10:53 PM

I picked this article because I wanted to know if this was true or not, This articles talks about how three qualities in music influence you to buy merchandise, tempo,volume, and genre.

 

 

Pros:

The Pros of this article showed that playing upbeat music will prompt people to buy more things.

 

 

Cons:

Slow music caused customers to spend a significantly higher dollar amount on alcohol and spent more time eating while fast music led to a faster meal and shorter wait times for incoming patrons.



Playing slow music led to A) significantly more time spent in the store and B) a significant increase (32%) in gross product sales when compared to behavior when fast music was playing.

Nathan Hanson's curator insight, March 6, 2014 2:07 PM

This was an interesting topic on how different tempo, loudness and style effects customers in businesses the softer and slower it is. The more likely a customer is to buy more than if the music is higher paced or loud.

There is a natural progression to the way we listen to music and the medium we use to listen to it.  Thought the decline in physical music sales such as CDs and Vinyls are decreasing, which could result in some profit loss for certain artists, there is a rise in the digital download world.  This comes from our shift into a more digital friendly world where we need to have access to everything right here and right now.  This isn't necessarily a bad thing, as programs such as iTunes allow the consumer to either buy an individual track or full length album.  This could lead to consumers pouring more money into an artist by leading them to buy more and more music from that artist because it is so easy to access.

 

I am including this because CNN is a reputable news source and matches the information I found in my original source.

Travis Bliven's curator insight, December 4, 2015 1:10 PM

This article brings up some pretty interesting statistics concerning the decline of CD sales, however it still admits that nearly 80% of music consumption sales resulted in a bought physical CD. Yes it is possible that the CD may go the way of the vinyl but we have to remember one thing. People like to have something physical to show for the money they spent. While digital downloads are increasing for individual songs I do not think CD's or Vinyl will ever stop being bought. The digital world in my opinion is merely forcing artists to produce better product. Instead of putting "filler" songs on their CD's to fill out the album requirements, every song now needs to have #1 hit quality in order to provoke the sale of a physical CD. That's kind of a cool thought.
