(p.193) Conclusion Staying Human
Playing to the Crowd

NYU Press

This conclusion turns away from musicians, asking what we can learn from them to understand relational labor across fields. Arguing that our humanity is at stake, it identifies a set of goals for conditions that would allow relational laborers to flourish. It closes with three sets of recommendations for musicians and others seeking to communicate with audiences, with audiences, and with those who develop the platforms that connect them.

Keywords:   musicians, audiences, platforms, labor, flourishing
