Three Act Play

02024-04-06 | Musings, Technology | 0 comments

Music of Sound showed a play for our time in three acts on this post.

Act one, in which a tech bro wants to convince the musician to release on Spotify:

Act two, in which the musician is reluctant and the tech bro makes grand claims to win him over:


Act three, in which the tech bro finds out that musicians aren’t stupid and is schooled.


6k ≠ 200k.
Musicians can’t just grow an audience. 
Streaming as a business model doesn’t benefit musicians and may not be around for very long because even the streaming companies are not making any money – except the CEOs, of course. 

I am actually contemplating releasing a music cassette next…  :-)
