The Water & Music Archives, 2016 – 2019

This PDF eBook features over 20 hand-picked essays on music and technology, all of which were originally published in Cherie Hu's music-industry newsletter Water & Music between November 2016 and April 2019.

Each essay dives into a different facet of how music, technology and economics intersect — from the financial value of music generated by artificial intelligence, to the impact of smart speakers on artists’ careers, to our new “post-playlist” world, to the clashes between corporate culture and digital fan dynamics, to unconventional approaches to album releases, and much more.

This collection was formerly hosted on Water & Music's old Revue page, and is no longer available anywhere else online.

The price of this eBook is pay-what-you-want, with a $5 minimum. All proceeds from sales of the eBook will go towards Water & Music's operations as an independent newsletter, research hub and community dedicated to music and tech.

Alternatively, if you join any tier of the Water & Music membership on Patreon, you will receive a discount code to download this eBook for free.
