I dislike seeing a
redacted.ch referrer link to | | as much as the next artist. But discussing piracy is a lost cause, and I'm not here to stand on a soapbox and shout about it. Time is more precious than this. Actually, I'm a little baffled, as streaming on Bandcamp costs nothing, and downloading from Bandcamp is easier and quicker than that of a torrent. Less time overall.
What is being destroyed in the torrenting or file-locker process, however, is the chance for the audience to personally connect with the artist, and show, first-hand, support for the work.
My feel-good moment.
Money, copyright, promotion, etc, none of that is as important as that one signal from the listener, that recording these tracks was worth it. It's a meaning-of-life question.
p.s. Worth relinking
