Digital Music Observatory

New upload


Digital Music Observatory

The Digital Music Observatory is a fully automated, open source, open data observatory that links public datasets in order to provide a comprehensive view of the European music industry. The DMO produces key business and policy indicators that enable the growth of music business strategies and national music policies in a way that works both for music lover audiences and the creative enterprises of the sector.

Its data pillars are following the structure laid out in the Feasibility study for the establishment of a European Music Observatory:

The Demo Music Observatory Pillars:

  1. Music Economy
  2. Diversity & Circulation
  3. Music & Society
  4. Innovation - innovative data applications

Curation policy:

We are going to publish here all curated data from the Digital Music Observatory, and we are looking for data related to the topic.  

- The data must be tidy, with all observations in rows, and all variables in columns.
- The data should be clearly described, and if possible, be reproducible with R or Python program code.
- If the dataset is not reproducible, we will try to make it reproducible with the author of the submitted dataset. 

Our aim is to create datasets that are periodically refreshed, and go through thorough unit testing.
