The History of Technological Developments in the Recording Industry

  • Hyojung Sun


This chapter examines the dominant discourses surrounding the digital recording industry. It first demonstrates the evolution of the recording industry in the context of technological advances, intellectual property (IP) and organisational practices. I then extend the view to the perspective of the entire network of the recording industry and discuss a broader range of settings for innovation and a wider array of players involved in the recording industry in pre-digital settings. This chapter finishes by outlining existing views on the digitalisation of music in three dimensions: the techno-centric dichotomy in understanding the digital recording industry, the discourse of P2P technology’s impact on the market and the technological trajectory of P2P technology that has deviated from the prediction.
