 NORDx online event: Datafication and the hybrid gatekeeping mechanisms of Music Streaming

In slightly more than a decade streaming platforms have become the main way of consuming and discovering music, first in the Nordics and later around the world.

The last few years has been dominated by an algorithmic turn in streaming, and “datafication” and music metrics have taken on a key role as a gatekeeping mechanism informing choices made on acts and artists to sign, the discoverability of music within the streaming platforms, and ultimately how revenues from streaming is distributed.

In this talk, Arnt Maasø (Associate professor, Dr. art. at Department of Media and Communication, University of Oslo) explores how streaming changes in the relationship between artists and audiences and some of the consequences for music culture, and the changing roles of musicians and artist.
