Tom Ray is a musician (band Lorenzo's Music) and podcaster. One of Tom's favorite music sites is opening again, the Free Music Archive!
Tom talks with Hessel van Oorschot from the Netherlands who's company Tribe of Noise saved the site from going down. We talk about their plans for this iconic music discovery and sharing platform.
But we also talk about the future of art and music on the internet. How different organizations like Coil and Grant for the Web (37min35) are trying to find ways to help creators, artists, and musicians build their work outside of an ad-based revenue model.
This conversation isn't just for musicians it's a discussion about what the future of art on the web could be and what some of these organizations are trying right now.
