[microsound] the culture industry
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?
