    therefore searches for John Adams and Bach are meaningless as they cover many non musical searches Google Trends is certainly fallible but it is a lot better than backing hunches There is a lot more explanation about the methodology on Google s explanatory page which quite candidly says We hope you find this service interesting and entertaining but you probably wouldn t want to write your Ph D dissertation based on the information provided by Trends And the same can be said for this post Also on Facebook and Twitter Any copyrighted material on these pages is included as fair use for the purpose of study review or critical analysis only and will be removed at the request of copyright owner s Report broken links missing images and errors to overgrownpath at hotmail dot co dot uk Posted by Pliable at Monday December 20 2010 Email This BlogThis Share to Twitter Share to Facebook Share to Pinterest Labels andre rieu bbc proms BBC Radio 3 clasical music dubstep google gustav mahler john cage social media 5 comments musikat said I ll let this quote from e e cummings sum up my response while you and I have lips and voices which are for kissing and to sing with who cares if some one eyed son of a bitch invents a machine to measure spring with mk 8 36 pm RM said John Cage does spike considerably in the end of the year in the UK http www google com trends q john cage date all geo gbr ctab 0 sa N and http www google com trends q john cage date ytd geo gbr ctab 0 sort 0 sa N Not that that matters very much of course 8 39 pm Pliable said RM you are quite correct To try to acknowledge that I said John Cage is showing only a limited response to the Cage Against the Machine exposure and did include the twelve month trend But having said that I was surprised the spike was not bigger One explanation may be that long established figures such as Cage and Mahler have a base volume of searches which are not event related Because of this base level an event blip deflects the trend by a small amount compared with newer figures who do not have the same ongoing base level of searches As I said in my post it is tempting to dismiss Google Trends as indeed the first commenter does But it is interesting that you by contrast took the post seriously enough to drill down in the John Cage data to country level As I also said Google Trends does provide food for thought 9 11 pm JoshMc said It seems possible to me that classical music doesn t respond well to mass marketing or at least the mass marketing that s been tried I wouldn t necessarily write it off as un mass marketable though It s also possible that the techniques that ve been tried

  • On An Overgrown Path: Thomas Tallis’ tipping point
    incestuous and rarified atmosphere that with a few notable exceptions excludes horizontal integration with other art forms such as painting sculpture literature poetry cinematography and even dance This despite the indisputable evidence that creative polyphony in the form of Fifty Shades of Grey gave classical music its biggest recent sales hike This despite the new audiences reached in the past by more edifying tie ins including Stanley Kubrick s 2001 A Space Odyssey Ken Russel s Elgar Portrait of a Composer and Peter Shaffer s Amadeus And this despite the Mahler boom itself being triggered in large part by Lucino Visconti s 1971 film Death in Venice There needs to be far more awareness of the insidious effects of vertical integration in the music supply chain But there are other lessons to be learnt from Thomas Tallis tipping point One is the importance of chance Fifty Shades of Grey is an example of the black swan effect whereby a surprise event has a major impact And of course chance is the polar opposite of that ultimate expression of predictability the composer anniversary Another important lesson is that celebrity the current holy grail of classical music played no part at all in the upturn in the Elizabethan composer s fortunes EMI s Fifty Shades of Grey The Classical Album which incidentally contains an admirable introductory selection of music features Peter Phillips and the Tallis Scholars recording of Spem in Alium Yet Google Trends shows no uplift at all for the search term Tallis Scholars but does show a significant increase for Spem in Alium As Ravi Shankar once said Get high on the music it is enough Inevitably my soundtrack is Thomas Tallis and if just one reader of Fifty Shades of Grey bought the Chapelle du Roi s ravishing ten CD budget survey of Tallis vocal music on Brilliant Classics it would be reason to celebrate Classical music should stop being so judgmental does anyone remember Vanessa Maes t shirt and instead start the search for new tipping points Also on Facebook and Twitter I have not read Fifty Shades of Grey and I bought the Brilliant Classic s Tallis box in Prelude Records Any copyrighted material on these pages is included as fair use for the purpose of study review or critical analysis only and will be removed at the request of copyright owner s Report broken links missing images and errors to overgrownpath at hotmail dot co dot uk Posted by Pliable at Sunday October 21 2012 Email This BlogThis Share to Twitter Share to Facebook Share to Pinterest Labels bbc proms chapelle du roi E L James Fifty Shades of Grey Google Trends gustav mahler john cage soundnotion tv thomas tallis No comments Post a Comment Newer Post Older Post Home Subscribe to Post Comments Atom Chance headlines Loading Search On An Overgrown Path Loading Blog Archive 2016 19 February 5 January 14 2015 196 December 21 November 9 October 23 September 24 August 13 July 25
