GUEST,Phil d'Conch Carrying it on (34) RE: Carrying it on 10 May 21

Dick: I understand business communication and four function maths. The more any artist, in any genre or medium, seeks to please themselves the narrower the niche for the product. Only you are you.

The vast majority of available music goes completely unheard by any one consumer. There aren't enough waking hours in a human lifetime to experience all of it. Everybody, from Moe Asch to you, begins the process as a nonconsumer, an unaware listener. Something has to catch your ear or eye to bring it to your attention or you'll miss it altogether.

It's not that the commercial process works and the amateur does not. It's the probablity of your much, much smaller consumer base, outperforming Woody Guthrie's & Bruce Springsteen's millions carrying forward, artists and producers, amateurs and pros all inclusive.

PS: Springsteen, Guthrie, Steinbeck & Joad, Inc... anybody here seen any good creosote dumps lately? ;)
