@MatejLach ...And how much of that revenue went to musicians?
(My guess: very little, because streaming pays notoriously poorly.)
@artsyhonker Yeah, also because of the way the publishing agreements tend to be written, where the music publisher gets something close to 80% of that revenue, since in their words, they took considerable risk, (uploading a file to Spotify).
@MatejLach Indeed. I recommend Bandcamp if you want to support musicians more directly!
Labels aren't inherently evil and there is a lot of admin musicians might like to outsource. But having the *option* of going DIY can be super important.
SoNoMu (Sound Noise Music) is a mastodon instance for musicians, sound-artists, producers of any kind of aural noise, songwriters, bedroom producers, sonic manglers and algorave livecoders. -> more...
