Music and Platform Co-ops

Fall 2022

Taught By: Daniel Blake

Section: A

CRN: 11181

Credits: 4

“Music and Platform Co-Ops” will empower students to imagine a truly democratic mode of producing and distributing music for the 21st century. The course offers both a lecture component focusing on the history of collectivism and cooperativism in music, and a semester-long practicum assignment for which students will learn about and participate in the corporate governance of the New York City-based cooperative music platform Ampled. By immersively studying a music business that is collectively owned and controlled by musicians, workers, and listeners, the course envisions an alternative music industry that is distinct from conventional hierarchical leadership models. Evaluations will be based on completion of practicum assignments, one research paper, an oral presentation, and a collaborative final white paper outlining a shared governance strategy for Ampled.
