Anthony Rodgers's insight:

This article talks about Drake announcing the release date for Lil Wayne's Tha Carter V album. The pros to this article is the readers are given a release date for highly anticipated album and the reader is given information about what has been recorded for the album. The cons to this article is the statement on the release date did not come from Lil Wayne himself and, before the article came to light, Lil Wayne had said himself that the album would be released as a surprise like some Artist have done in the past year or 2.

 This article comes from Rob Wile busnissinsider.com. Rob is known for his reports on economics and technology so I found this was a credible source. The article covers some figures of digital music sales. The article's objective is to demonstrate that due to streaming services digital music sales have declined to the point off -2.3%. Streaming services sales, on the other hand, have increased.

This information is extremely important because now the artist is being forced to access the amount of albums the public has touched by knowing how many times their songs has been streamed or download and often for free.

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 | Music 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 site has minimal credibility as it comes from a blog, even if it is a labs blog.

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.

Podreu descobrir que diuen els últims estudis sobre el perquè el nostre cervell li agrada tant la música.

Natalie Gaskins's curator insight, May 11, 2014 2:18 PM

One day, I would love to venture into the field that connects Neuroscience with Music and that is why this article caught my attention right away. I admit to listening to certain songs and having to completely stop whatever I am doing because it was THAT good. I always wondered why that is and why certain sounds that we hear trigger emotions, or stimulation in our brains. I can agree with what the writer said in that we set up expectations in our brains with familiar styles of music and loved to be deceived when the music takes a different direction.I also agree that it is no longer enjoyable when the music goes too astray from what my brain wanted. It just gets annoying that way! It keeps excitement in the song and makes you try to anticipate what is going to happen next. It is a way to keep the listener attentive. I know that when I song is too predictable, it quickly looses my attention. As a songwriter, I feel that this is very crucial when writing. We have to keep the audience engaged at all times. This is also why artists make certain line-up choices while performing at a gig. I thought it odd that we get a different level of satisfaction when we have paid for the music and are then anticipating the surprise. Very odd. 

I would love to venture deeper into these studies and unlock more neurological secrets. Knowledge like this can help sell music.
