photo-101Read about this initiative in the Summer 2008/Hip-Hop Issue of Venus Zine: CASH Music is basically a new method of supporting bands and musicians. This particular site features the bands Xiu Xiu, Kristin Hersh, Deerhoof and the like. So basically you donate money for the tracks they have available on the site, take part in band-created questionnaires, download sheet music, etcetera. They describe their site this way:

  • “CASH Music is a non-profit organization dedicated to improving the music experience for artists and listeners alike. We’re building a free open-source platform that is designed to serve and benefit all facets of the music industry and greater music community.
  • We’re working directly with artists to find the best way forward for them and their music, helping to build unique experiences online and off. But more than anything we’re trying to make sure that music remains a vital part of our culture, and an integral part of our increasingly digital lives.”
