I really enjoyed the conversations here.
Zola’s appeal to artists and listeners to get involved in building services that are a real alternative to the corporate platforms was inspiring. Being prepared to put up with a simpler experience. Being prepared to help out. I loved that.
She talked about the rewards and inspiration of artists having a more direct, community relationship with listeners and contrasted that with the exploitation of artists by big streamers…
…where an artist is a ‘content pusher’ and the platform is ‘content farming’, with expectations of productivity and commercialisation. “I didn’t make music to sell ******(product) or ********(product)”
Looking forward to more gems from this event!
