Reading more nonsense about 'free' music. 'Pay What You Think It's Worth' is only free if you think it's worthless. In which case, it is.
If you think my music is worthless, me putting a price on it won't change that. If you think it's worth more than I do, we both win :)
This is grown up music economics: I can't stop you getting it for 'free', so I don't try. You have the chance to be a part of something good
Pay What You Think It's Worth lets you think about value, about what music means to you, about the part it plays in your life...
No one can make you do that, but the opportunity is there, and if you dig it, pay what it's worth. £1 or £100. bit.ly/jeA1pS
I have no truck at all with the idiots who say 'all music should be free'. That doesn't mean anything. It's not a matter of 'should'...
My life is better if I'm part of making the art I love possible. I love buying music. I like being part of the life-cycle. Everyone wins.
it's also poss. for digital music to have a unit cost. Cover tunes have to be paid for. Hence the minimum on Lo's album bit.ly/l14N9y
@Draconum there are lots of ways to do that - kickstarter, for instance. Or just a conversation :)
People look really surprised when I let them take CDs/USB sticks home from gigs and paypal the money later. Can't see any reason not to...
make friends with your listeners, trust them, invite them into your musical world. See what happens. Works for me :)
found out the other day that some schmuck in Germany has my stuff available to download behind his spam 'n' surveys paywall. Makes me laugh.
