Part of Being Human Exhibition

If you’ve ever wondered how music is created, where copyright fits in, and the impact that Covid-19 has had on musicians and the music industry, this event is for you.

Part gig, part debate, this session brings together music and legal scholars, musicians and policy makers to tell the story of a song – from composition and collaboration through to recording and live performance. In doing so, it explores how copyright supports the industry and its musicians, and the impact of lockdown on a sector already characterised by precariousness and uncertainty, which compelled many musicians to start using online platforms as their only means of making music.

Share your questions, views and experiences on discussion of music, copyright and precarity in this new creative world.

This event is presented by the College of Arts at the University of Glasgow as part of Being Human, the UK’s only national festival of the humanities, taking place 12–22 November. Led by the School of Advanced Study, University of London, in partnership with the Arts and Humanities Research Council and the British Academy.
