    ◎獨立唱片公司「Sahel Sounds」籲請被剝奪出版權的音樂人,以WhatsApp來錄製和上傳發行音樂。
    ◎唱片公司創始人(Chris Kirkley)十年來一直在記錄南撒哈拉沙漠的音樂,並剛剛發布了他的第60張唱片。(Kirkley)日前開始要求一群非洲音樂人用手機錄製一段簡短的錄音,然後通過WhatsApp發送給他。他會按照點播付費的方式在線上出售一個月,所有的利潤將直接發給樂團。
    ◎記者(Grayson Haver Currin)在Bandcamp上寫道,這是一項實驗,目的是為非洲樂團提供更直接的收入來源,使其在全球範圍內,通過自己的藝術獲利。

    詳細內文:

    Indie label Sahel Sounds is asking disenfranchised musicians to use WhatsApp, the wildly popular online messaging app to record and submit music for release.
    Label founder Chris Kirkley has been documenting the music of the Southern Sahara Desert for a decade and just released his 60th record.
    Two weeks ago Kirkley began asking a far-flung group of African musicians to record a short session using their cell phone and send it to him via WhatsApp. He would sell it online on a pay-what-you-will basis for one month and then replace it with new music. All of the profits would be sent directly to the band.
    The result will be a yearlong series called Music from Saharan WhatsApp.
    “In some ways, the music seems secondary to the model – the record label equivalent of a sponsored Snapchat message,” wrote journalist Grayson Haver Currin on the must-follow Bandcamp blog. “It’s an experiment in giving African bands a more direct income stream, and empowering them in the worldwide monetization of their own art.”
    “We work with some of the most disenfranchised artists, really underground artists from small towns that are not well-connected or major in their countries,” Chris Kirkley told Currin. “You are working across power differentials. I was always uncomfortable with the idea of creating a transactional relationship with those artists, but then I came to understand that it could be beneficial to them.”
