The live performance/large gatherings portion of the music business is obviously very affected by this.

However, most of us do either music or post and are capable of working from home. In fact, I wouldn’t be surprised to see recorded music/audio become more popular since so many people will be stuck at home.

Music industry, we're actually among the expendables.
Historically, the music/entertainment business has usually done better when the rest of the economy was doing poorly. Why? People were looking for something to distract them from their troubles. While live performances in person are out of the question, there are plenty of ways a person can consume music or film from home during this crisis, thanks to the internet.

There's a small-ish finnish metal band whose tour had to be canceled.
In order to recoup the lost revenue they are going to rent a venue, film a gig there with multiple cameras, give the thing a professional mixing treatment and release the whole thing as perk of a crowdfunding campaign for 20€.
Awesome idea, and they announced that campaign yesterday and already raised nearly 4000€.
People are getting creative.

Exclamation Re: Is the Coronavirus pandemic affecting your business?

We understand this is a complicated topic right now, so will try one last time before closing the thread.

Before replying to this thread...
1. Read the thread title to decide if your reply is related
2. Make sure there are no personal insults in your reply

Keep in mind that there are other more appropriate places on the internet to discuss politics and medical topics.

Thank you.
