Audio?s Opportunity and Who Will Capture It — MatthewBall.vc

quote [ Somehow it was possible that N***az4life was the second biggest album in the country by units purchased, but 21st in its own genre when it came to what was ?selling? and ?hottest.? One week after it?s release, the album hit #1 on the Billboard chart (displacing R.E.M) as hundreds of thousands flocked to the record store in search of the ?surprise? hit. ]

This is an investor pondering on why current audio tech trends offer growing markets but contains research with a long chain of historic media anecdotes beforehand, so it's still an interesting and very detailed read.

Jess Sah Bi and Peter One Revisit Our Garden Needs Its Flowers

quote [ Hanging out and playing guitar in his dorm, he made a connection with fellow guitarist and singer Jess Sah Bi, an accomplished performer who had been appearing on television and radio since he was a teenager. Influenced by the harmony singing of Simon & Garfunkel and Crosby, Stills & Nash, the young musicians began a performing and songwriting partnership that would lead them to pop success throughout West Africa. ]

A magnificent album, soothing and political at the same time. Another review can be found on Pitchfork. Check out the extended for songs and an interview.

The Hidden Costs of Streaming Music

quote [ Kyle Devine, in his recent book, ?Decomposed: The Political Ecology of Music,? thoroughly dismantles that seductive illusion. Like everything we do on the Internet, streaming and downloading music requires a steady surge of energy. Devine writes, ?The environmental cost of music is now greater than at any time during recorded music?s previous eras.?
In environmental terms, however, the CD turned out to be somewhat less deleterious. ]

My footprint brings all the boys to the yard. Full in extended.

35 years ago the Senate held hearings on rock lyrics. It was a First Amendment showdown for the ages.
