In the note, Amos claims that while she does not fear structure in general, major label missteps have forced artists like her to become independent rather than relying on a system that has become undependable.
This is an exciting time. There will be many ways in the present andin the future for artists to cross what has become the new uncharteredMusic Frontier. Ways that may seem impossible today but in a month(‘)stime will seem probable. There are many ways to be involved in astructure. But what kind of structure will it be and what will be themake up of it’s (sic) foundation?
These are important questions, so importantthat I’ve been observing many different working templates in the musicbusiness for years now. The key word here is the word “working.” Insome cases these structures do not work positively for some artists.
Only for those who have designed the system to specifically “work” forthe corporate few. Artists need not fear structure, we just have todesign and partner with expansive ideas.
It is time for us as artiststo stop being dependent, dependent on any system that has becomeundependable. Only then can we help to create a new system thatpropagates and secures independence for each creator.
Toriamos.com is slated to relaunch in “the next couple weeks,” hopefully with some examples of the expansive ideas she refers to above.
