THE HONOR CODE DOWNLOAD: REVOLUTIONIZING MUSIC - THE SIMPLE, VISIONARY ANSWER TO THE CURRENT PROBLEM OF MUSIC DISTRIBUTION
Can nobody make sense of it? The music industry is collapsing, listeners are downloading, and musicians are giving up their hopes of making a decent living. What's going on here and why?
THE PROBLEM WITH CDS, AND THE CURRENT MEANS OF MUSIC DISTRIBUTION
You, the listener, want to hear music you like. And, if you're like most people, you'd like to justly reward the artist for the pleasure he or she brings you.
Artists like myself would like our music to be enjoyed by anyone who can possibly enjoy it, and would like to be able to make a living providing this service to people.
Traditionally, the RECORD INDUSTRY has been the middle-man for this interaction. But the middle man has been using his position as the MAIN MAN to exploit artists, and deny listeners much of the choice they might have.
More and more musicians make less and less of a living, or become disillusioned with the industry, giving up on their hopes of being heard.
AND conscientious listeners know their money goes to pay greedy execs more than the artists themselves. So it's no wonder people feel little remorse for taking free downloads off the internet.
TECHNOLOGY IS NOW ON OUR SIDE
While the ability to distribute music has been restricted to the industry, the internet, along with disc-burning and compression technology has now turned the tide away from the middle-man, to the DIRECT artist-listener relationship.
A NEW SYSTEM OF MUSIC DISTRIBUTION, BASED ON TRUST, NOT EXPLOITATION
The sound files on this site are free to download for all.
You can listen to them on your computer, burn discs
I ask that if you enjoy them, consider the work that went into making them - a lifetime of practice, plus recording costs, plus website costs.
If you enjoy listening to this music, please make a contribution directly to the artist, based on the amount of pleasure the music gives you. You simply transfer the money directly to the artist's bank account , everything can be done online.
It's a direct exchange, no record execs, no managers, and no lawyers get paid. Nobody gets in the way of deciding who's music can be heard.
You get the music directly from the artist.
You listen, and pay the artist what you think is fair for his work.
The artist is happy not to be exploited, and you are happy to know that the money goes directly to him.
HOW MUCH SHOULD I CONTRIBUTE?
Ultimately, that's up to you. Ask yourself what it's worth. How much did you pay for entertainment this month, and how does this music contribute to your overall entertainment experience? Did you go to the movies? Buy any CDs? Watch cable TV? Netflix? See any live concerts? Download any $1 tracks from industry sites?
Consider these things, consider your disposable income, and make an appropriate contribution.
If you're still at a loss, and need a suggestion, start with a dollar a track, but feel free to spend more or less as your conscience dictates. Make yourself happy with your purchase! (Please contribute at least a buck, or I'll lose money to paypal!)
