Presentation for the Deep in the Woods festival, Belgium 2013
How to shift the
music industry
towards a more
sustainable
track?
Hi, my name is Leen Gorissen.
I’m a transition researcher @ VITO and
an engaged music lover!
BUT I am getting increasingly more worried about this:
Yes, I am
aware that
this is
probably not
very rock’n
roll…
READING FESTIVAL @ David White
Already 172 tonnes of garbage collected
at the Ghent festival
One out of 4 festival attendants leaves their tent
This is part of CULTURE. And culture is very difficult to
change. But should we just ignore or accept this?
We need a
new
definition of
‘cool’.
Because this MATTERS and in more than
one regard!
DIDYOU KNOW THAT
Every 5 minutes 2 million plastic bottles are
thrown away in the US…

…and plastic that isn’t recycled ends up in our
oceans creating huge underwater islands of
plastic soup like in the Pacific...
…ENDANGERING and KILLING all marine life…

…but also ends up on your plate…
.
…and eventually into your favorite destinations…
Is this how you would want to spend your holiday?
…and eventually into your favorite destinations…
DID YOU KNOW THAT
We are consuming more resources than the planet
can generate in 1 year: World Overshoot Day
That is stealing from the future!
And trouble will begin before we run out…
There’s more

And there’s more…
And doing this will not
make it go away
And doing this will not
make it go away
This doesn’t seem very
‘sapiens’ to me
How
come
that we
have
become
so good
at this?
And doing this will not
make it go away
So, what now?
‘The future is NOT some place we are
going to but one we are creating.
The paths are not to be found but made
and the activity of making them
changes both the maker and the
destination’
John Schaar - Futurist
This is something we
tend to forget in our
ratrace world…
Transformational times ask
for transformational change!
So, let’s get our heads out of the sand
and start thinking about
…what kind of transition we want?
Our consumption levels, pollution levels and loss of natural
habitats are DECREASING our resilience
While
this is
where I
would
want to
go
…and where we are heading?
This is
the
track we
are on
Why not create the future we want?
…and start thinking of how we can influence the transition
1. Stop, pauze and rethink
‘The world will not evolve past its current state of crisis by using
the same thinking that created the situation’
Albert Einstein
1. Stop, pauze and rethink
‘The world will not evolve past its current state of crisis by using
the same thinking that created the situation’
Albert Einstein
Yet we keep throwing ‘old’ solutions to ‘new’ problems…
and
keep reinforcing leadership of the old style in positions that
need new leaders
2. Then revise and reorient
What future do we want?
What is needed to develop sustainably?
What is appropriate?
What needs to change to realise the future we want?
How can we organize the transition?
A
S
K
3. Then start acting
Don’t wait for others to take
action. They are waiting for you!
From the old way of thinking to a new way of thinking?
exploitation cooperation
extract value add value
take – make – dispose closed lean cycles
overconsumption sufficiency
From old, unsuitable structures to new structures?
vertical horizontal
hierarchical networks
top-down bottom-up
central decentral
pillars communities
So how can we shift
From old steering strategies to new navigation
approaches?
mono-actor networks
control and demand adaptation and anticipation
certainty uncertainty
simplicity complexity
Let’s get back to the story
How can the music industry evolve
towards a more sustainable track?
From a transition framework we know
that incremental change is not going to
be enough.
What we need is a RADICAL shift in
culture, structure and practice
How can the music industry evolve
towards a more sustainable track?
From a transition framework we know
that incremental change is not going to
be enough.
What we need is a RADICAL shift in
culture, structure and practice
That means: ‘doing
things better’
Which means:
‘doing better
things’
So how can the music industry evolve
towards a more sustainable track?
So, who has the MOST impact?
So how can the music industry evolve
towards a more sustainable track?
So, who has the MOST impact?
And who
has the
most
impact on
them?
Let’s
Design a process of change
1. Show leadership and envision how
a sustainable music sector can look
like!
» That requires some serious out-of-the-box thinking
» For that we will need to bring together a group of
frontrunners, pioneers and visionary thinkers that
co-create a new vision
2. Identify transition pathways of
how to realize the vision
» That requires people with guts and impact!
» Identify points of intervention to transform the
current business mentality, business models and
organisational culture
3. Start up transition experiments
» ‘Learning by doing’ and ‘doing by learning’
» That allow us to learn about barrieres and
enablers, about context and scale…
» Then re-adjust, reorient, scale up…
Essential to this is
A GOOD REFORM AGENDA
supported by committed people
and serious cooperation
Why is this so important?
“The global crisis of unsustainability is not only a crisis of the
hardware of civilization, it is also a crisis of the software of
minds. The search for a more sustainable development has, so
far, been focusing too much on hardware updates, such as new
technologies, economic incentives, policies and regulations,
and too little on software revisions, that is the cultural
transformations affecting our ways of knowing, learning,
valuing and acting together. The cultural software is,
nevertheless, at least as much part of the fundamental
infrastructure of a society as its material hardware.”
Sacha Kagan, 2012
Music is an essential part of
the software of minds
So let’s start by transitioning the music
sector towards a more sustainable track.
Let’s build the future we want!

What can you do as an engaged music lover?
1. Think about the music system and its
impact on the planet. How does it deal with
scarce resources and energy? How does it
impact waste and pollution?
2. Reflect upon ways of how we can shift the
industry from extracting value to adding
value.
3. Talk to your friends about this.
4. Start asking these questions to the people
that have impact: artists, organisers,… Use
new media such as twitter to fuel a societal
debate.
5. Become the change you want to see.
The thinking presented in this presentation is ‘work in progress’ and
based on my experience working as a transition researcher at VITO,
Belgium
It arose in my free time and in my own name
Let’s cooperate to change the system:

  • 26. And doing this will not make it go away
  • 27. And doing this will not make it go away This doesn’t seem very ‘sapiens’ to me
  • 28. How come that we have become so good at this? And doing this will not make it go away
  • 29. So, what now? ‘The future is NOT some place we are going to but one we are creating. The paths are not to be found but made and the activity of making them changes both the maker and the destination’ John Schaar - Futurist This is something we tend to forget in our ratrace world…
  • 30. Transformational times ask for transformational change!
  • 31. So, let’s get our heads out of the sand and start thinking about
  • 32. …what kind of transition we want?
  • 33. Our consumption levels, pollution levels and loss of natural habitats are DECREASING our resilience While this is where I would want to go …and where we are heading? This is the track we are on
  • 34. Why not create the future we want? …and start thinking of how we can influence the transition
  • 35. 1. Stop, pauze and rethink ‘The world will not evolve past its current state of crisis by using the same thinking that created the situation’ Albert Einstein
  • 36. 1. Stop, pauze and rethink ‘The world will not evolve past its current state of crisis by using the same thinking that created the situation’ Albert Einstein Yet we keep throwing ‘old’ solutions to ‘new’ problems… and keep reinforcing leadership of the old style in positions that need new leaders
  • 37. 2. Then revise and reorient What future do we want? What is needed to develop sustainably? What is appropriate? What needs to change to realise the future we want? How can we organize the transition? A S K
  • 38. 3. Then start acting Don’t wait for others to take action. They are waiting for you!
  • 39. From the old way of thinking to a new way of thinking? exploitation cooperation extract value add value take – make – dispose closed lean cycles overconsumption sufficiency From old, unsuitable structures to new structures? vertical horizontal hierarchical networks top-down bottom-up central decentral pillars communities So how can we shift
  • 40. From old steering strategies to new navigation approaches? mono-actor networks control and demand adaptation and anticipation certainty uncertainty simplicity complexity
  • 41. Let’s get back to the story
  • 42. How can the music industry evolve towards a more sustainable track? From a transition framework we know that incremental change is not going to be enough. What we need is a RADICAL shift in culture, structure and practice
  • 43. How can the music industry evolve towards a more sustainable track? From a transition framework we know that incremental change is not going to be enough. What we need is a RADICAL shift in culture, structure and practice That means: ‘doing things better’ Which means: ‘doing better things’
  • 44. So how can the music industry evolve towards a more sustainable track? So, who has the MOST impact?
  • 45. So how can the music industry evolve towards a more sustainable track? So, who has the MOST impact? And who has the most impact on them?
  • 47. 1. Show leadership and envision how a sustainable music sector can look like! » That requires some serious out-of-the-box thinking » For that we will need to bring together a group of frontrunners, pioneers and visionary thinkers that co-create a new vision
  • 48. 2. Identify transition pathways of how to realize the vision » That requires people with guts and impact! » Identify points of intervention to transform the current business mentality, business models and organisational culture
  • 49. 3. Start up transition experiments » ‘Learning by doing’ and ‘doing by learning’ » That allow us to learn about barrieres and enablers, about context and scale… » Then re-adjust, reorient, scale up…
  • 50. Essential to this is A GOOD REFORM AGENDA supported by committed people and serious cooperation
  • 51. Why is this so important? “The global crisis of unsustainability is not only a crisis of the hardware of civilization, it is also a crisis of the software of minds. The search for a more sustainable development has, so far, been focusing too much on hardware updates, such as new technologies, economic incentives, policies and regulations, and too little on software revisions, that is the cultural transformations affecting our ways of knowing, learning, valuing and acting together. The cultural software is, nevertheless, at least as much part of the fundamental infrastructure of a society as its material hardware.” Sacha Kagan, 2012
  • 52. Music is an essential part of the software of minds
  • 53. So let’s start by transitioning the music sector towards a more sustainable track. Let’s build the future we want! Pic courtesy http://www.chaoswallpapers.com/green_apple_is_live_music_energy_great_dj_background-wallpapers.html
  • 54. What can you do as an engaged music lover? 1. Think about the music system and its impact on the planet. How does it deal with scarce resources and energy? How does it impact waste and pollution? 2. Reflect upon ways of how we can shift the industry from extracting value to adding value. 3. Talk to your friends about this. 4. Start asking these questions to the people that have impact: artists, organisers,… Use new media such as twitter to fuel a societal debate. 5. Become the change you want to see.
  • 55. The thinking presented in this presentation is ‘work in progress’ and based on my experience working as a transition researcher at VITO, Belgium It arose in my free time and in my own name Let’s cooperate to change the system: twitter: L_gori or leen.gorissen@vito.be
