Reproducing inequalities in music platforms: The case of Bandcamp
- Bandcamp is an internet platform allowing independent musicians and bands to post and sell their creations on a dedicated page. The platform singularizes itself by its lack of discovery affordances and its pricing system which only introduces a lower cap therefore allowing for large on each transaction.
- Our aim was to identify the actual inequalities formed in this context (both monetary and in term of visibility) as well the consequent consumers behaviors and associated producers’ strategies on the platform. In other words, when a platform dosen’t provide clear recommendation to navigate the different produce in its catalogue which feedback loop between consumer and producer behavior can we observe.
