Thanks to Lucas and Jay for the kind words about my music, and to Victor for the “star” thing.
I wonder if this notion of musicians needing to acquire their own basic business skills might be a healthy thing. I’d like to see music-making become less of an “artiste in a garret or tower” thing in a cultural context that no longer requires that approach. I’d rather music creators be like small-business craftspeople–artists and business folks, all combined. I am not opposed to managers or non-musician specialists, of course–but I love the idea of
an electronic informal guild.
