Sean Coon, the creative and administrative force behind the dotmatrixproject checks in with us on the progress of his collaborative experiment. The pressures of an extremely heavy workload combined with personal struggles and attempts to balance the two are common themes in this industry.
Despite the fact that there are many succesful examples of collaborative web-based companies out there, the pace at which web-based technologies change makes everything a moving target.
We may be at the beginning of a new era. The Rise of Regionalism. The rise of the middle class artist empowered to distribute and sell their own material without having to be a star or gain the attention of some disconnected music exec who churns out twinkie songs for a monopolized network of payola radio and tv stations.
Good luck Sean. Good luck dotmatrixproject. See you tonight.
Tonight, dotmatrixproject presents another FREE.LIVE.MUSIC concert at the Green Burro on Elm Street in downtown Greensboro.
