Thanks to Boing Boing for pointing to this unique new way of managing music. CASH Music is the system helps artists to raise funds and then distribute their musical works over the internet, in most cases DRM free and with a Creative Commons License. It puts the power of creativity and distribution into the hands of the artists. It also puts the burden of advertisement, sales, and recouping costs in the hands of the artists as well. Catch is that in todays world of high computing the power of an overly expensive recording studio is condensed into a high end PC. There are no expensive reels of tape, no 'studio time' to pay for either. In an environment when all of the tools of production are almost at anyones fingertips one hopes that the best will bubble up to the surface. As music aficionados it our job as patrons to financially support and spread good music when we find it.
