Nancy Baym - Playing to the Crowd
Nancy organised and led the first MTF Research Symposium in 2014, and gathered a group of world-leading academics together to co-author the Manifesto for the Future of Music Technology Research at #MTFBoston. She came to MTF Stockholm last year to lead the research symposium again, and to launch her new book, Playing to the Crowd: Musicians, Audiences and the Intimate Work of Connecting. She joined MTF Director Andrew Dubber on the interview stage to discuss her book, her career, her life as a seriously dedicated music fan - and a researcher in the study of online communities, social media and communication.
