Let’s Talk Data I

Let’s Talk Data I – The datafication of musical taste

The digital music industry is increasingly data-centered and it is often assumed that developments in big data are at the heart of the future of the music business. But how do differences in quality and access to data affect the industry dynamics? What are the implications of the emergence of algorithmic curation and recommendation of music for the future of musical development and taste? And how is data changing the ability to make money from music in the digital age?

This keynote reports from an ongoing research project at Roskilde University. It explores the multitudes of different data that are currently being used in the music industries and discusses the potential impact of data on business models, taste and power relations across the music industry sectors.

Rasmus Rex Pedersen is Assistant Professor, PhD at Roskilde University.
