Kind of a “flogging a dead horse” article. But one thing gleaned is that Youtube is the best platform for showcasing longform music concepts at the present. I personally create original videos with the original music on a fabric — Summon These Days playlist and get 150 views max. But its kind of a resume I can point people to, which has value. And it timestamps original songs and generates just enough buzz that if someone directly copied the musical ideas I would have a nice payday.
