Just Exactly Why Do We Need the Music Business?
“…by the midnineties, we could see that digital music would soon be forcing change on the recording industry….Spyder [husband and collaborator] was fascinated by the impact on the actual music and the limitless creative possibilities that the digital age ushered into the studio…. What I was after was simple: the end of the record industry as we knew it. I wanted to see the collapse of the major labels’ stronghold on music…. If the labels didn’t get on board with the digital age, they would implode. And since we despised the way they did business, we figured we’d be only too happy to stand by and watch it happen.”
