The digital transformation of the music industry. The second decade: From download to streaming

Ulrich Dolata

No 2020-04, Research Contributions to Organizational Sociology and Innovation Studies, SOI Discussion Papers from University of Stuttgart, Institute for Social Sciences, Department of Organizational Sociology and Innovation Studies

Abstract: The music industry was the first media sector to be massively affected by digitization and the internet. In this paper, the strongly technology-driven transformation of the sector is first reconstructed, divided into distinguishable development phases and condensed into characteristic peculiarities of an extended socio-technical upheaval. Subsequently, the most recent change in the music market and consumption from buying to accessing music will be examined and the thesis will be pursued that the implementation of streaming gives rise to qualitatively new possibilities and patterns of a technically mediated observation of consumers, curation of music and commodification of the product.
