[microsound] the culture industry

this clip



is from a doc film titled 'Before The Music Dies' and shows how a pop  
song/singer is manufactured...


I read an in-depth article in the New York Times Magazine a few years  
back on the same subject/issues: manufacturing a pop star/hit  
single...I tossed it during a spring studio cleaning but I'm sure  
some Googling would reveal title/author

q1: has the steady stream of swill coming from the 'culture industry'  
given people the impression that music is disposable and hence not  
worth paying for?

q2: is filesharing a  _symptom_  of the devaluation of cultural  
artifacts or simply a problem in itself?
