I saw the New York premier of Matt Wolf‘s first feature-length film, Wild Combination, at the Kitchen last night. It’s an amazing documentary on the life and music of Arthur Russell, the innovative downtown musical composer/performer who just couldn’t stand still and wouldn’t be pinned down, even for his own visions of his art.

: Nine Inch Nails | ‘The Slip’ For Free

nin | the slip

Trent Reznor introduces his latest album The Slip with a note that reads, “Thank you for your continued and loyal support over the years — this one’s on me.”

He means it. The album is available for free in what could be the perfect array of digital formats: MP3, lossless (FLAC or Apple) or 24-bit, 96-kHz WAV files that sound better than the CD would have, if Reznor had bothered to release one yet. Vinyl and CD versions will go on sale in July, according to the Nine Inch Nails site.

Not only is The Slip available for free, but it was released under the Creative Commons “attribution noncommercial share-alike” license. A note on the NIN site says: “We encourage you to remix it, share it with your friends, post it on your blog, play it on your podcast, give it to strangers, etc.” The MP3 version of the album is available as a direct download from a server, while the larger files (lossless and high-resolution) are available as torrent downloads.

The Future Of Viral Marketing

After you enter your e-mail address for the download link, a new screen appears asking if you would like to send this album as a gift to 3 friends. The thinking here is that the distribution will expand exponentially as each person will tell 3 people who tell 3 people and so on. With this model Trent gets their email address for future promotions and a lot of music into listeners computers. / gregrollett

Vinyl and CD versions will go on sale in July, according to the Nine Inch Nails site. Reznor’s direct-to-fans approach extends to his upcoming tour. Tickets will be available through the NIN website in the 72 hours leading up to the show (updated). Each ticket will have the name of the buyer printed on it, so they will not available through scalpers.

: Musician ‘duped’ into anti-piracy video

Filed under: xxx — Tags: , , — xshortlist @ 7:27 pm

An artist featured in a new campaign pushed by the Australian music industry to discourage illegal file sharing and change the public’s perception that musicians live like royalty says he was duped into joining an anti-piracy “witch hunt”.

Frenzal Rhomb guitarist Lindsay McDougall, also a radio presenter at Triple J, told the Herald he was furious at being “lumped in with this witch hunt” and that he had been “completely taken out of context and defamed” by the Australian music industry, which funded the video.
