Solarpunk, but mildly dystopian: in the future, all recorded music is second-hand vinyl records played on antique, hand-cranked phonographs. No new records are produced, so recorded music is "carbon neutral," but the old records are starting to wear out and a lot of old music is disappearing as a result. The old classics are kept alive through live performances, as always, but archivists are worried that much of humanity's musical history is being lost.
@ItsTheManOnTheMoon @ink_slinger That reminds me of this bit I heard about a Bach piece that Yo-Yo Ma has been playing since he was 4 years old and how he has constantly reinterpreted it throughout his life. https://www.npr.org/2018/08/17/639571356/yo-yo-ma-a-life-led-with-bach
social.coop is a cooperatively-run corner of the Fediverse. The instance is democratically governed by its members, who generally share an interest in the co-op model, but topics of discussion range widely.
Our instance is supported by sliding scale contributions of $1-10/mo made via Open Collective. You must have an active Open Collective account to apply for membership; you may set one up here
