Commercial Aspects

Part of the Computational Music Science book series (CMS)


When you have put all the ingredients together, from community to large form, you are confronted with the most annoying question: Where will I be positioned in the local or global marketplace? After all, you want or have to make a living out of your profession as a composer. Of course, you can become a teacher or even a university professor of composition and then you have also answered the survival question, but this is not our concern here. We want to think about earning money as a composer, not as a teacher.
