Article
Music preferences have been shown to be determined by a diversity of factors such as cognitive, emotional, cultural, or experiential. Having studied music is also a factor that has been considered from a musicology standpoint and is linked to the accumulation of cultural capital, as analyzed in cultural economics, arts management, and the sociology...
Chapter
Some music genres have traditionally and mainly been consumed by men. This is the case of rap/hip-hop. However, data on the consumption of this genre in recent years shows a relevant increase in the number of women interested in this type of music. It would therefore seem to be pertinent to analyse this new trend, not only as a question linked to g...

The last two decades have witnessed an increasing scholarly interest on music consumption. This interest can be explained, at least partly, to the relevance of music as a form of cultural consumption and the profound changes the sector has undergone. This paper performs a bibliometric analysis of the literature on music consumption research. In doi...

The extended belief of gay people being more creative and showing higher interest toward arts lacks robust empirical support. The pioneer study on this issue highlighted that LGB´s arts participation was mostly explained by demographic factors such as level of studies, residence and family situation, which suggests that differences due to sexual or...

Music festivals, as cultural events that induce tourism flows, intermediate both the cultural and travel experience. The present study analyzes online search behavior of potential attenders to a music festival. We hypothesize that the search process reveals latent patterns of behavior of cultural tourists planning to attend music festivals. To this...

Cultural products compete for public awareness in markets with high uncertainty, oversupply and a short product life cycle. Altogether, this means that only a small fraction of all releases generate the necessary consumer awareness to achieve a significant commercial success. This paper aims at identifying the informational function music festivals...
Article
La generalización de internet ha supuesto una ampliación, aunque marginal, del público interesado en las expresiones culturales que conforman la denominada cultura de alto nivel (teatro, ópera, ballet y danza, música clásica). Si bien el consumo digital permite eliminar algunas restricciones (principalmente las de carácter económico), también gener...

This paper empirically investigates and characterizes users of recorded music, both downloaders and purchasers. To this end we analyse the role of the variables defining the different segments of music users. In doing so, we have considered two main traits influencing the use of music. First, objective variables such as demographics, music consumpt...
Presentation
Is there any link between religiousness and participation in the arts? This work identifies two dimensions of religiousness and estimates the impact these have on highbrow and lowbrow cultural participation. Evidence supports religiosity both as a means of building social relations (increasing participation in the arts) and of self-expression and a...

Findings on European countries show non-uniform decreasing trends of film theatres’ audiences, the decline being more severe in Spain. This research presents a multifaceted perspective of Spanish filmgoers focused on motives for and barriers to film theatres attendance. Two comprehensive scales (motives, barriers) are proposed. First, motives and...

This research analyzes the performance of 467 record labels in eight European countries over a period of 13 years (2003–2015). The main goal is to explain a relative measure of profitability in terms of observed variables, although the nature of the dataset also allows us to include non-observed firm and country effects. To this end alternative mod...

This paper empirically investigates the impact of religiosity on cultural consumption. To this end we extend the standard model of cultural participation by hypothesizing that religious beliefs and religiosity shape preferences. In so doing, we identify two latent traits through which religiosity affects cultural consumption. First, a general relig...

This paper measures satisfaction with a cultural event following an innovative approach by differentiating between the art form itself (core product) and the main attributes connected with it (augmented product). 122 individuals (out of 820 visitors) were interviewed on their overall satisfaction and on different aspects of their visiting experienc...

p>La satisfacción es un constructo clave no exento de complejidad en su medición. En el contexto cultural y desde la disciplina de marketing, esta se plantea a partir de la valoración de una serie de experiencias sin considerar las expectativas de los consumidores. Partiendo de este enfoque, este trabajo aborda una investigación empírica con el obj...
Article
Consumption behaviour in the cultural industries is dependent on technology and technological leaps. In the case of recorded music, individuals express or categorize themselves within a specific social space based not only on the content they listen to but also on the technology they use. The authors analyze recorded music consumption habits as wel...
Article
While the profile of popular music attenders has been widely analyzed, that of non-attenders is usually ignored. The purpose of this article is to describe and segment live popular music audiences with an emphasis on the identification of potential participants that is, those who do not attend but would attend under the right circumstance. The auth...
Article
Purpose – Despite an abundance of literature on the effects of copyright infringement on music consumption, empirical evidence remains ambiguous. The aim of this chapter is to quantify the effect of copyright infringement on recorded music purchases and live music attendance for Spanish frequent music consumers, and to measure its effect on partici...

Spanish universities have recently adapted their studies to the requirements of the European Higher Education Area (EHEA). This process has involved the consideration of the development of computer and informational skills as an academic objective. In order to develop these skills, among other activities, an informative video has been disseminated....
Article
Changing consumption habits have rearranged the popular music market in the last decade, and a pattern in which live music attendance gets an increasing share of the market has emerged. This work analyzes the demand for the popular music sector considering its double dimension as supplier of live concerts and prerecorded music. We use the 2006/2007...

E-learning is characterized both by human-human interaction (between students, fellow students and teachers) and by human-machine interaction (between students and e-learning software) to support the learning process. Since several studies point out that men and women differ in their interaction with technology, we perform one-way and inter-individ...

Article
This paper analyses satisfaction with a cultural event, specifically in relation to an art exhibition. Following the literature in this field, satisfaction is measured as a post-consumption phenomenon omitting the role of expectations. A six-item satisfaction scale was then produced considering the main attributes of the exhibition. Data was collec...
Article
La distribución del éxito comercial en las industrias culturales es marcadamente asimétrica, donde gran parte de las ventas se concentran en unos pocos artistas. Esta asimetría puede surgir por la acumulación de conocimiento necesaria en el consumo de determinadas manifestaciones culturales y artísticas, lo que enfrenta a consumidores a costes de b...
Article
This article aims at identifying differences in copyright protection in prerecorded music markets, and more specifically the impact of the legal system on the demand for original music CDs. To this end, we use a panel of 28 OECD countries in the period 1999–2005. After testing alternative specifications, our results show that differences in legal o...

Article
Full-text available
We sketch here the basis of a behavioral theory of non-market decision making or collective action. Departing from the basic social problem, the coordination of individual actions when individual rationality is opposed to collective rationality, we model a population of agents choosing their level of individual cooperation. The social dilemma that...

Since its initial developments in the 60’s, the intellectual contributions of James Buchanan have influenced the research of scholars working in the field of politics and economics. On his eightieth birthday we want to contribute to the Buchanan festschrift with this paper. In it, we develop a model of social interaction among individuals in the po...
Article
This work aims at connecting developments in the theory of agency and implicit contracts with research on bounded rationality and agent based computational models. These are two related areas as implicit contracts are justified on the basis of bounded rationality, which additionally is one of the justifications of computational agent based models....

El presente trabajo analiza la problematica de la descentralizacion presupuestaria. El modelo de descentralizacion estudia los aspectos que subyacen en la asignacion de un presupuesto inicialmente centralizado hacia niveles descentralizados, considerando un nivel central compuesto por un unico agente y un nivel sub-central, o descentral- izado, por...
Article
Collective allocation of resources that takes place in political markets is characterized by the complex exchange that emerges among the individuals involved. Traditional Public Choice models depart from individual rational choice in a setup in which many of its strict requirements need not hold. This paper introduces a model of social interaction...
Article
The present paper analyzes competitive coordination games from a public choice approach. In these, agents may engage in a rent-seeking competition for norms, which redefines property rights and has redistributive effects. For a binary population, the work shows that rent dissipation will depend on the asymmetry of the payoffs, the returns of the re...

Nash equilibrium is the point of departure of most of the standard literature on public goods. This stresses the sub-optimality of voluntary contributions towards the provision of a public good: in game theoretic terms, with unboundedly rational agents, individual best response is no cooperation in the provision of public goods. However, this is no...

The conventional approach on public goods provision stresses the inability of voluntary mechanisms to induce cooperation in a social group. However experiments and reality contrast with this sharp prediction. In this paper we develop a setup of social cooperation toward the provision of a public good, in which individuals exhibit bounded rationalit...
Article
The following paper analyzes the problem of social cooperation in the provision of a public good from an evolutionary perspective. To this end we depart from behavioral programs as the basic building block for modeling individuals in the social interaction, which is based on a generalized prisoners dilemma. In it, a population of individuals follow...
Article
In this paper we analyze an evolutionary public good setting consid- ering the possibility of a cooperative evolutionary equilibrium when indi- viduals face a moral constraint. We characterize honest players as those that show a commitment to a socially desirable model trying to spread it within the population. In this case a multiplicity of equili...
