Music summarised beautifully.

“Music is, bit its nature, non-material. It can be heard but not held. It last only as long as it plays. It is not something that can, in any direct way, be owned. How to turn this intangible, time-bound aural experience into something that can be bought and sold is thus a question that has drive popular music history since the first wandering performers sang for their supper”
