The Internet Has Solved Music’s Problem-Steve Albini

Steve Albini, prolific musician and recording engineer (he prefers the latter term over record producer) gave us an insightful perspective on the music business in 1993 with his essay The Problem with Music.

His thoughts continue to be provocative and profound as you will read here from his keynote address at the Melbourne Face the Music Conference.

“The Internet Has Solved Music’s Problem”
By Steve Albini

TV on the Radio
