This is Spotify - Songs und Stars auf Abruf
We can listen to our favourite songs at any time and in any place - thanks to Spotify. The streaming provider has changed our listening habits, the music industry and the songs themselves. Who are the winners and who are the losers in the streaming business? How do artists still earn their money at all? And how has the hunt for clicks changed music itself?
We get to the bottom of these questions in our documentary "This is Spotify - Songs and Stars on Demand". We look over the shoulders of a wide variety of players from the music industry as they go about their creative work. German rapper Sero became famous through social media and Spotify. He masterfully uses the different channels to launch his new album. The income of jazz musicians like Roman & Julian Wasserfuhr through Spotify is low, despite great artistic recognition. Nevertheless, the brothers continue to rely on streaming. After all, they can reach an audience of a million worldwide this way.
