We examine communications between professional team members and departments (from music publishers, record companies and artist managers) working together to develop the careers of songwriters, composers & recording artists; plus relations between individual record companies & music publishers (both major and independent) and co-operation between the sectors to meet thechallenges and opportunities presented by digital technology and communications in 2013 and beyond.
