Sustaining A Band

Made by Tom Harman

A collection of cybernetic models highlighting the evolution of the music industry. Techniques including Bio-cost and Goals & Means were employed to articulate how artists are now less reliant on record labels to sustain themselves.

The project focused on four channels of artist income and how the internet has impacted them. The proposed design intervention focused toward the one area that remains relatively unaffected by modern technology, namely, music licensing and the difficulty of collecting royalties.
