First Jane Siberry implemented a “pay what you think is fair” system at her online music store. Now ThrowingMusic – online home of Kristin Hersh, Throwing Muses, and 50FootWave – is giving away free mp3s, asking only that you share the buzz:
With “Free Music” 50FootWave is seeking new earballs. We thought it’d be interesting to ask for your energy & enthusiasm rather than your money and see what happens. To that end, please share this music in any and every way you see fit. Burn CDs, post the mp3s, seed Torrents — whatever’s comfortable for you.
It’s an experiment. Who knows how it will go? Wheee!
