Six ESHCC researchers will be present to talk and discuss their work in relation to contemporary challenges in the music industry at Europe’s biggest industry meeting Eurosonic Noorderslag (ESNS), which takes place from 19 to 21 January. ESNS is a non-profit, 100% showcase festival and music conference. This year we will see the launch of ESNS SCIENCE, a collaboration between Erasmus School of History, Culture and Communication (ESHCC) and ESNS, spearheaded by Frank Kimenai and in close collaboration with Pauwke Berkers (ESHCC) and Yosha Wijngaarden. ESNS SCIENCE hosts three panels on resilience, on inclusion and on web 3.0. Moreover, Simone Driessen, Martijn Mulder, and Kim Dankoor will participate in ESNS sessions.

The music sector finds itself on a major turning point. It is coping with the ravaging effects of the pandemic and does so in a fast changing economic, social and cultural landscape. On the one hand, the music sector is known for its agility, flexibility and adaptiveness. On the other hand, we currently witness a sector that is in a deep crisis and unable to deal with the profound impact of all these changes. In order for the music sector to better deal with these challenges, it needs to become more resilient. Resilience is the capacity to deal with crises and change, and it is the central theme of this first edition of ESNS Science.

For this program, ESNS has teamed up with the department of Arts and Culture Studies of Erasmus University Rotterdam to compile three cutting-edge panels at the intersection of academic research and the music sector. ESNSciene has invited a wide variety of international top-notch scientists, thinkers and experts, ranging from ecologists and sociologists to psychologists, economists and system designers to discuss how to build resilience in the music sector and better equip those in it to deal with the ongoing challenges and changes. 

ESNS SCIENCE hosts three panels on resilience, on inclusion and on web 3.0.

Apart from the ESNS Science panels, other ESHCC researchers will be present during ESNS: Simone Driessen will participate in panels about fan loyalty and cancel culture, Martijn Mulder will present his Livemuziek Monitor, developed as part of the Poplive project, and Kim Dankoor will host a session on women in hiphop music.
