Name, first nameRomain TalouYear of birth1994UniversityHEADField of Interest / research fieldInteraction / Game / Media DesignTitle of projectOnline Music CommunitiesAbstractThis research discuses how music aficionados have continually hijacked models of music broadcasting and distribution. From the major labels of yesteryear to today’s streaming giants.
In this context, I observe how enthusiasts within online communities reapprorpiate the experience of discovering and sharing music. Does this new role of amateur critic and curator make sense with regards to the tradition of experts in this domain? How do amateurs deal with the failure of algorithmic curation on streaming platforms? Can these communities blaze a trail for the mainstream online music listening experience?
