Trent Reznor – The future of music

Mai multe despre viitorul muzicii:

TrentTrent Reznor, frontman of the rock band Nine Inch Nails, has long been one of the most outspoken critics of the record industry’s ways. He’s now continuing to make music outside of that system. But he can do that because he became hugely popular within that system first, something which has also been true for acts like Radiohead. But Reznor has some very interesting thoughts about the future of music as a business for all artists.

He goes on to say that he hopes whatever gets established gives the artists much more control. And he mentions that it could well be some sort of fairly-priced subscription model. But Reznor doesn’t see that happening anytime soon given what he knows about the record labels.

He also mentions a model that he’s been experimenting with, using music as a loss leader of sorts to earn fans and get them to pay to come to concerts and buy premium merchandise. You can be sure the labels won’t be too fond of that idea either.
