Il crowdfunding potrà sostituire la discografia o avrà solo una funzione di supporto?
Secondo me le etichette sono fondamentali, sono il polmone culturale di questo paese. Soprattutto per le band ai primi dischi, è fondamentale avere un supporto di questo tipo. Circa il 30% dei progetti presentati su Musicraiser sono realizzati da etichette, altre frequentano il sito per mettere sotto contratto gli artisti e come loro fanno i promoter e le agenzie di booking. È importante che il lavoro delle etichette prosegua, ma la discografia deve cambiare, anche perché non ha senso che si chiami così quando i dischi nemmeno si vendono più. Oggi un’etichetta deve gestire l’artista a 360 gradi, non può limitarsi alla produzione di un disco. Ci vuole un lavoro mirato, magari con meno artisti, ma seguiti in modo diverso.- Giovanni Gulino è il cantante dei Marta sui Tubi e da qualche mese, insieme a Tania Varuni, è fondatore e responsabile di Musicraiser, piattaforma di crowdfunding musicale lanciata a ottobre 2012.
