Stunning day. In Sydney.
With some doges
This is not about the folks who simply cannot afford it, I see you, I appreciate you, (but please don’t centre yourself in the replies and dilute my point). This is purely about the whinging folks who couldn’t get over my audacity at doing something nice for my supporters. 3/4
I’m just fearful at the state of music and how we value the contribution musicians make. Maybe one day there will be a separate platform for music? Maybe one day licensing will be fair and accessible. Maybe one day we’ll realise we actually cannot live without music and art 4/4
If I don’t bring enough value to you, that’s your call to make and my issue to improve on. We only have a problem when the whining sets in. If 30 yrs of musical training is not worth it, I get it, it’s not your bag, it’s a gaming platform after all. Spotify is free so why pay?3/4
I did a sub stream yesterday - first one in 3 years, as a way of saying thanks to the folks who support me most, and to create a more intimate ‘piano concert’ atmosphere. Oh god the whining. The constant articulating of displeasure. If you don’t wanna sub that’s ok! 1/4
In a sick way I am almost glad the RIAA is coming down so hard. They’re tired of music’s value being reduced to $0 on a large scale. I hope licensing reform will bring about fair solutions for artists and consumers.
Schroedinger’s music: essential/a luxury/priceless/worth $0/important/non-essential....depending on the agenda
How the public sees music: a commodity, as essential as air, should be free, worth $0
How the govt sees music: non essential, a luxury, not included in any covid stimulus package
How orgs see music: let’s get them to raise money for charity
Is sleeping on your tummy really bad cause I’m doing it almost exclusively
That free tier on Spotify has really f$&ked everything up
Here’s an idea: musicians are respected and/or valued
What do you think
Well that was interesting

No but seriously, I play 90s video game music. Gaming is more evenly enjoyed by men and women today than it was 30 years ago. These are expected stats.
Women called Matt, I am imploring you to sub to my YouTube channel
