I've had this idea at the back of my mind for a while, and one of my composers just made the same suggestion, so I'm going to throw it out there: Who would be interested in a pay-per-download service? I know a few times I have spent 15 quid on a CD when I only really wanted one track on it... If I was to implement it on our site (www.emusic-online.com operating in New Zealand), it would work something like this: Tracks can be browsed and sorted by composer/band/album and 30 second previews would br free. The customer fills their shopping cart with the tracks they want, then pay by PayPal/credit card. A temporary download link is sent to the customer by email on successful payment. The customer downloads the tracks to their PC, then burns to CD, adds to iPod etc... Technologically it shouldn't be a huge effort to create. But two questions before I start coding. 1) BANDS: would you be interested in selling your CDs in this way? People can buy individual tracks and you'd receive a percentage of the price for everything sold. 2) MUSICIANS: would you prefer to buy this way? Any other concerns/suggestions? This is potentially a great way to broaden the availability and affordability of brass band recordings, please let me know what you think about it!
