Quote from: FreakAnimalFinland on November 10, 2022, 03:12:34 PMQuestion would be interesting, is it possible to be "known"/"big" in such a scattered music culture as we have now and what does it mean? Ability to tour? Getting some press coverage? Sell slightly more units than random newbie? etc? If noise artist would get bigger, what kind of things it does cause, that having pretty much microscopic recognition doesn't cause? I would guess label perspective could be easy to ask. It might be difficult to find artists that somehow made "breakthrough" (in level of noise), as funny is it may sound? Got name, reached non-scene audience, put out stuff on music labels, noticed that people actually knows your work, perhaps pay big bucks for it, etc. etc. How different it is from being 100 copies C-20 -category, and what reaching slightly bigger "success" would mean?

What for? Economic success is nothing that I associate with Noise. And I cannot see it as a goal anyway. Even though we live in a world that makes it pretty much impossible to avoid living in capitalist structures, Noise relies on them very little. Releases are done in super small editions with extensive packaging and still sold for reasonable price that makes break-even almost impossible. There is only minimum "advertising". Labels work in a very different way than "real" music-labels. There is no need for the faux-professionalism that we see in parts of the extreme-metal and hardcore scenes, where music is more of a career-choice than an expression of the artist self and which pretty much kills the vibe that made the scene in the first place.Enough art is created while keeping economics and commercial exploitability in mind already. The educational system is shitting out new "artists" non-stop. Rather keep Noise underground and exciting.
