What do you think about music industry?
I think the “music industry” is a phrase/idea that is meaning less and less these days. As music has become utterly accessible through the internet and file sharing, paying for it seems to be more about showing support for musicians and their work than getting past restrictions. I think this is a very healthy sign but I know this depends on perspective. For someone making their living on music or music distribution, these changes can seem malignant and people that “steal” or share “music” are branded by them as a cancer to the industry. However, I think it’s just as important to wonder whether or not the “music industry” is the kind of model that makes the most sense for music today. This “cancer” might just be the cure for a dying industry, and the possibilities that are out there for a responsible “music collective” are much more exciting for me than the old “pay to play” music-model. What is most important I think is to remember that people that share music do so out of enthusiasm and there will always be music out there to listen to/being made even if there is not a career or market for it. I look forward to watching the shift.
