and enjoyment is the prime motivator and creative force behind the entire music
Music is primarily produced
for enjoyment. Why do we buy a CD or a consert ticket? We plunk down the money
looking forward to enjoying the music. What motivates music industry executives
to produce and distribute music? Money and enjoyment of music. Why do artists
write, perform and sell their music? Money and enjoyment. Take away the
enjoyment; what do you have left? Certainly not a market for music. Take away
the money; what do you have left? Certainly not a livelyhood. But, you can still
enjoy the music, sung and played at home and with friends and neighbors. So, it
is not the money that actually drives the economic viability of the music
industry. It is the enjoyment of the music itself!
Those people who invest in music to make a buck are motivated by intersts that
may or may not include the enjoyment of music. Those of us who shell out our hard-earned
cash for the right to listen to the music are focused primarily on the enjoyment
of the music.
