Thinking Out Loud Survey: Have you made a music-related decision recently?

Have You Made A Music Related Decision Recently? Researchers at the University of Liverpool are interested to know: What that decision was? And how you made it? These two questions are the foundation of a new survey entitled Thinking Out Loud.

Have You Made A Music Related Decision Recently? Researchers at the University of Liverpool are interested to know about what that decision was, and how you made it. These two questions are the foundation of a new survey entitled Thinking Out Loud.

Whilst there is often lots of focus on the big project or career decisions music makers take, often the small, but potentially significant, everyday decisions are overlooked.

That’s why this survey wants to know about any decision, big or small, you’ve made in the last few days.

The data generated from all the individual decisions taken by all different types of music makers, from across the UK, will then be analysed to see if there are any collective trends and themes in how music makers currently think about what they do.

The aim is for the results to provide a fresh insight into the ways 21st century UK music makers think about creating, managing, promoting and making money from the music projects they’re involved in.

So, if you’ve recently made a decision and you don’t yet know how it will turn out, take 10 minutes to complete the survey and get in with the chance to win £500 to spend on music equipment at Rimmers Music.

The survey, sponsored by Rimmers Music, is part of the PhD research of University of Liverpool music industry lecturer Mathew Flynn. Having spent most of his career working with or teaching musicians, his thesis explores how musicians deal with the everyday challenges of making music and keeping projects going in a seemingly increasingly complex music environment.

The survey runs from the 15 November to 7 December and is anonymous unless you choose to submit your email to enter into the prize draw to win the Rimmers vouchers. There’s further information in the survey.
