Making CentsÂ is a very sad article setting out quite how minimal the payments to artists can be from streaming music services. It’s a shame that these services are our preferred option for accessing music, because I’d like to reward the musicians if possible.
Authors still write books despite the Kindle, so there seem to be business models that work. Maybe we just haven’t found them for music yet?
Separately, well worth a listen to the marvellous LFK (Elizabeth Meister) in the Beethoven Missa Solemnis at the Carnegie Hall.
