Record Store Day April 22
His ambition, to celebrate “independent” music deserves our attention alone. How? Music would not be just an industrial product and pre-formatted? interesting … many live events will come in any case we propose “something else” and opportunities for discovery will be many.
The distribution of cultural products
At the origin of the Disquaire Day, a reflection on the diffusion of music and, incidentally, on the almost complete disappearance of all independent record stores … the transition to digital (the CD) marked a new approach to the distribution method music that has become, well before the internet, a product “like any other”, distributed according to the same rules. The phenomenon of downloading has of course amplified the trend, but do not be mistaken, it is not him who is at the origin.
The CALIF (Club Action des Labels Indépendants Français), supported by the Ministry of Culture, is at the origin of many actions in favor of the promotion of independent record stores.
It is interesting to note that this type of day was created in the United States and the United Kingdom since 2007. The Record Store Day was supported by, many artists who even broadcast exclusively in independent networks, songs and unreleased discs.
In 2011, CALIF joined the “Record Store Day” by creating its French version, the “Disquaire Day” and involving all the actors of the French music industry: artists, labels, distributors, etc.
