Subject: RE: EFDSS awards funding for new music
May I point out to Guest above that new music is aimed at us every day. It's generally referred to as POP music
Most of it thankfully dies after a very short life span. Music that is worthwhile i.e; brings lasting pleasure to a number of people lives on for a longer period, some of it for hundreds of years.
New does not been better and neither does old but there is a vast amount of old material that still brings pleasure to a number of people. Unfortunately the older material is rarely heard by the general public.
I wonder how happy PRS members will be to know that part of their Royalties is being used to susidise new competition.
Like-wise I used to wonder the same when as I understood it PPL used some of their members royalties to subsidies the Brits. Perhaps they still do.
