Our project is focusing on how to improve the quality of recordings on mobile consumer devices. This article by the BBC new team suggests the reason why many artists are against the recording of concerts on smart phones is because of the lower level of quality.
In my opinion I think it would be interesting to see if artist’s opinons change when the quality of recordings increases. I think it could be likely that the real issue for artists is a loss of control of their art form. I would be interested to see what other people thought.
