Voluntarily Raped by Streaming Music Services !

What's your value, musician?
Do you really need such companies (like Spotify) as an Underground non commercial, non mainstream artist? Really?
Do you really need some kind of illusion?
Fuck, I feel the need to create some body art in form of some bloody least. "Burn, Giant, Burn" (a nice Testphasen negativ CD title, btw)
I wish, people would get together and stand up against this  capitalistic fuckers. But instead they say "Thank you for raping me and stealing my music and rights", because that's what really happens to you, dear friends.

"Top executives at Spotify make millions while artists endeavor just to earn pennies.
At well over 60 million, Spotify has the highest number of paid subscriptions.  Ahead of its Wall Street offering, the company’s valuation has skyrocketed to $19 billion.  Top executives at Spotify reportedly earn seven-figure salaries.

So, how are artists faring on the platform?  Not so well.

Last year, the service paid out $0.0038 per play.  Not much has changed this year.  With a reported 51.51% market share in the US, Spotify pays $0.00397 per stream."

Additionally to my last post, here is the truth:
iTunes Europe, payment for ONE stream:
tada: $0.00074742

best regards
A hard working man

PPS: New Testphasen negativ CD is coming very soon. The master is almost already finished!!!
(DEUTSCH) Ich habe mit den Mastering Arbeiten zu Dan Knowlers (The Infinite Three) neuem Solo Album begonnen. Ein toller Soundtrack, wenn man so will.
Es sind viele verschiedene Stimmungen und Musikstile vertreten, die alle dennoch wunderbar zusammengehörig passend daherkommen.
Es gibt: Gitarren-Ambient, Post-Rock in vollem Band Sound, Clint Mansell ähnliche Stücke, dann wiederum David Gilmour Gitarrenarbeit (ala Sorrow etc).

Ein wirklich gelungenes Album, ein klasse Soundtrack zu einem imaginären Film.
Habt ein Auge auf die The Infinite Three website
Aber auch ich halte euch auf dem Laufenden. 

Weiteres frisch von mir gemastertes Material von der Hauptband The Infinite Three wird ebenfalls bald kommen. Allerdings erst 2019. 
Ich halte euch über alles auf dem Laufenden 

Beste Grüße 
Ein hart arbeitender Man ;-)

PPS: New Testphasen negativ CD kommt sehr bald. Das Master ist so gut wie durch!!
