Re: [microsound] torrents

Well Well!!! As an artist, i always feel free to copy, download, etc,
because anyone can do the same with my work! Art is sharing a point of view,
an aesthetic experience, far away from money or fame...
(i don't know if i can say that here, but kim cascone's work with Merzbow is
one of the greatest music i ever heard, BUT i don't have the money to buy
cd, because i have my work as musician and image maker, and that costs me a
lot!!! : So what can i do, just listen once, and erase it after? And can i
share my copy with anyone else, or not? I'm not a pirat, i'm an art lover
without money...
That's my point of view...
