Stephen Carradini’s work featured in Pitchfork, AltPress, Metal Hammer and more
CRDM student Stephen Carradini’s work on the professional communication practices of musicians was recently featured in several online music publications, including Pitchfork, AltPress, Metal Hammer (Denmark) and more. The coverage focused on his research article “An Organizational Structure of Indie Rock Musicians as Displayed by Facebook Usage,” which was recently published in the Journal of Technical Writing and Communication.
The article uses preliminary data from Stephen’s in-progress dissertation, Musicians as Extra-institutional Professional Communicators. The results of the article show that indie rock musicians face large institutional challenges as they attempt to gather an audience, book shows, and complete other tasks that develop a career.
