WFMU and the Free Music Archive are proud to bring you a fresh episode of Radio Free Culture, a weekly podcast exploring issues at the intersection of digital culture and the arts.
In this episode, Cheyenne Hohman, RFC host and current Director of the FMA, spoke to Kristin Thomson, a primary researcher on the Artist Revenue Streams project with the Future of Music Coalition, about how the ways artists have made money has changed in the wake of the Web. You can read along with some of the findings in this slide deck: "Ten ways that technology-driven changes have impacted musicians."

Empty Orchestra finds The OO-Ray (Ted Laderas) possessed with a new sense of urgency. Recorded over a stressful three years concurrent with his doctoral work in biology, Empty Orchestra is a work that protests the savagery of today while still maintaining that calm and peace can be reached through the turbulence. Empty Orchestra blends the distorted shoegazer explorations with experiments in classical orchestration resulting in an propulsive and urgent listening experience.
