In my town (Melbourne, Australia) the major daily newspapers put out an entertainment liftout once a week. They are always full of the latest music genius from somewhere else. Then 6 months later, I don’t hear anything else about them. Or, if I am still hearing about them, it’s often about their drug habit, their relationship breakdown, their weight gain / weight loss, or their underwear line.
Where is music in all this ?
The press don’t write about working musicians – the people I know – my colleagues, the musos – except to reprint the stuff in the press releases we send them, a trick we learned from the major labels.
Its such a tired old model.
So starts the premise for Leos’ work with video and media presentation on the web. Digital Pill.
