Abstract [en]

We investigate relations between bestselling artists in last decade on phonographic market and from perspective of listeners by using the Social Network Analyzes. Starting network is obtained from the matrix of correlations between the world's bestselling artists by considering the synchronous time evolution of weekly record sales. This method reveals the structure of phonographic market, but we claim that it has no impact on people who see relationship between artists and music genres. We compare sale (based on correlation of record sales) or popularity (based on data mining of the record charts) networks with similarity (obtained mainly from survey within music experts' opinion) and find no significant relations. We postulate that non-laminar phenomena on this specific market introduce turbulence to how people view relations of artists.
