article of interest re: today's music industry

Postby KarenZ » Tue Jul 28, 2009 12:31 pm


A music writer for the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review had this article in the Sunday paper about why it's so hard for the indie musicians that we know and love to make it in the music business nowadays. He says that quality has been replaced by mass appeal....

Is music made too much for mass appeal? by Rege Behe

"Some people are born to make great art and others are born to appreciate it. It is a kind of talent in itself, to be an audience, whether you are the spectator in the gallery or you are listening to the voice of the world's greatest soprano. Not everyone can be the artist. There have to be those who witness the art, who love and appreciate what they have been privileged to see." -- Ann Patchett in Bel Canto.
