Your mission should you choose to accept it.
So are there really evil robots and do they really want to take over the world? Of course there are, and they already have! It’s been reported that six media companies control 90% of the media in America. That’s an amazingly small number of gatekeepers for a pretty big and diverse population. With music, these gatekeepers have proven that its more important for them to market image rather than music. The music they give us is often over-produced, over-compressed and lacks depth.
So how do we away control from the evil robot media corporations that control the music world? Talking more about music that’s made for the sake of the music and not for an image would be a good start. It would benefit us all to share more of the music that we’ve found outside of the influence of the big six.
Many of you reading this are long time veterans of the live music scene on Second Life, or perhaps other indie music scenes (like the former mp3.com). If you’re like me, you’ve heard a lot of really awesome music in these places that is considered unknown or obscure that deserves to be heard. The only way it gets heard is if people share this music with their friends and other folks. So get out there and blog about it, post about it on social media, and share links to your favorite indie artists websites, videos and other places that we share music.
So I’m guessing you wouldn’t expect me to make a post like this where I didn’t put my money where my mouth was, right? Right. So here are a couple of songs that I think you should listen to today:
Frenzy by Lyndon Heart
At Any Rate by Sean Kagalis
So who’s with me?
