Digital Music Cultures and Economies Research Group

This research group investigates how digital technologies shape the way music is made, used and enjoyed. They are interested in cultural, economic and legal aspects of the digital transformation of music practices. The group addresses topics such as how music recommender systems shape how music is discovered and become popular; how music platform features are co-opted by fans for social and creative play; how algorithmic gossip influences composers’ and performers’ creative work; or how novel industry logics, brought on by digital music platforms, transform music companies’ business practices.
