Spotify Pays Peanuts to Artists. That’s Not Necessarily a Problem.

Spotify Pays Peanuts to Artists. That’s Not Necessarily a Problem. | Music, Theatre, and Dance | Scoop.it

Claudio Matta's curator insight, March 13, 9:20 AM

This article shows very good examples of evidence about how Spotify and Pandora pay peanuts to very recognized and successful artists like David Lowery, singer-guitarist of Cracker and Camper Van Beethoven, Thom Yorke of Radiohead and producer Nigel Godrich. 

I disagree in the "streaming music is not the digital equivalent of radio" point because for me it actually is the equivalent of radio and I think that artists should definitely get paid what they deserve for each stream, which is a lot more than they're getting right now. Therefore, I do think it is a problem that artists are getting paid peanuts from streaming services.

But when choreographer Miguel Gutierrez dissects ageism in Age & Beauty Part 1: Mid-Career Artist/Suicide Note or &:-/, his contribution to the Whitney Biennial (through May 4)—and the first in a planned series addressing queerness and the passage of time—he’s not talking about generations so much as he is grappling with vanity: the 42-year-old casts himself as the old fogey. In other words, he’s the victim here—but not a defeated one.
