The band and the brand was incubated in academia when Laura, studying“Audio and Music Technology” at the University of the West of England, Bristol, completed the book as part of her thesis. Although steeped in the rigors of academic research, the book is spiked with practical experience and personal insights. It offers fascinating examples of Sound in marketing from a corporate and personal level. Bands are Brands too, Laura says, as she studies how artist step over the line is aligning with the wrong brands at the wrong time and mix up their message.
It looks at the history of Sound in marketing and how marketing is changing to adapt to the new social world where connection and engagement are now defined by emotional context. That is where music comes into the equation as it is the one stimulus that has most effect on our moods and brain thank any other. In Fact, scientific research has established that “music stimulates more parts of the brain than any other human function.” See NPR.Org
The book discusses the current changes taking place in the music industry and brands’ growing desire to add music and sound to their brand identity. Laura also builds out a paradigm for Marketing and Advertising that centers on the four Es rather that the four Ps of marketing. Namely Experience, Engagements, Exclusivity And Emotions. She maps out how music integrated with the new paradigm.
