Warum wurde der Jazz ausgerechnet in den 1920er Jahren zum dominanten Popularmusikstil? Was hat es mit der Rock n Roll-Revolution auf sich? Warum fanden Heavy Metal, Punk Rock und HipHop den Weg von diversen Subkulturen in die musikindustrielle Verwertung? Welche Auswirkungen haben neue Technologien und das Internet auf das Musikschaffen zu Beginn des 21. Jahrhunderts? Diese und ähnliche Fragen versucht Kreativität und Innovation in der Musikindustrie zu beantworten. Das Buch versteht sich aber nicht nur als eine Geschichte der Musikindustrie seit der Erfindung des Phonographen durch Thomas Alva Edison im Jahr 1877, sondern bietet auch ein Erklärungsmodell, wie ästhetische, technologische, legistische, wirtschaftliche, soziale, politische etc. Veränderungen ineinander griffen und Strukturbrüche in der Musikindustrie auslösten. Zur Anwendung kommt ein integriertes Kreativitäts- und Innovationsmodell, mit dessen Hilfe so komplexe Wandlungsprozesse wie zum Beispiel die Entstehung der Rockmusik Mitte der 1950er Jahre ganzheitlich erklärt werden können. Das Modell ist aber auch der Ausgangspunkt für die Analyse gegenwärtiger Wandlungsprozesse in der Musikindustrie rund um die Themen MP3, Musiktauschbörsen im Internet und neue Geschäftsmodelle, die den Zugang zur Musik zur Dienstleistung machen. All das sind Indizien für einen erneuten Strukturbruch in der Musikindustrie, der als Teil der digitalen Revolution verstanden werden kann und ausführlich in diesem Buch zur Sprache kommt.

With few exceptions, scholarship on creativity has focused on its positive aspects while largely ignoring its dark side. This includes not only creativity deliberately aimed at hurting others, such as crime or terrorism, or at gaining unfair advantages, but also the accidental negative side effects of well-intentioned acts. This book brings together essays written by experts from various fields (psychology, criminal justice, sociology, engineering, education, history, and design) and with different interests (personality development, mental health, deviant behavior, law enforcement, and counter-terrorism) to illustrate the nature of negative creativity, examine its variants, call attention to its dangers, and draw conclusions about how to prevent it or protect society from its effects.
