Matt Flynn

I have an MA in Music Industries studies from the University of Liverpool. Since 2004 I have been a Lecturer in professional development at the Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts. Between 1996 and 2009 I worked in the UK as a self-employed independent music practitioner, setting up and running rehearsal studios and an independent record label.

My doctoral research explores recorded music as an economy of attention, and I have presented conference papers on topics related to music reception, fandom and listening, music streaming, artists as entrepreneurs and copyright.
