RE: Why I avoid digital music

Adam’s post about digital music compares the descriptive service of record sleeves and liner notes associated with analog music distribution to relative lack of description found with digital music purchases. I think this consideration may also be helpful this week as we consider digital preservation. Much music in the digital wild, especially illegally rendered copies, are of low quality. In response to this entities such as Pono Music have come about trying to sell digital music at high quality renderings. Not only can the quality of description vary in the digital realm, but also the quality of the object as well – especially when it is meant to surrogate or supplant something in the ‘analog’ world.
