The paper aims to provide some empirical evidence to strengthen the debate around the project-based organisation, which tends to qualifies the latter as the dominant organising form among the creative industries. Our focus is the performing music industry. We recur to an unique database we have built on the basis of data provided by ENPALS (Ente Nazionale di Previdenza e di Assistenza per i Lavoratori dello Spettacolo) in Rome (Italy), which collects the pension contributions for the workers of performing arts among all Italian public and private organisations. The output of our descriptive analysis confirms that the project based organisations, that in our case of the performing music regard primarily the event management, are the most diffuse form in this field. Moreover, our research gives some interesting hints on the characteristics of the performing music labour force, asserting the project based workers as the category that includes the majority of workers in the industry.
