The New Psychological Landscape of Making Music

14 May ’07

Clive Thompson has an excellent piece in the NYT on the changes the Internet is making to the way music is made and distributed. Most interesting of all to me is the effect that deep involvement in social media is having on the relationships musicians have with their fans, and with their creativity. Update: Can we say now that if one is an artist, the Internet drowns you with attention? Yet another sign that what people want is direct contact, and that Hollywood’s ages-old practice of creating royalty is out-of-touch.
