Booktracks - La musica liberata (Spotify playlist + ebook free download)

In my real non-Spotirama life, I often write about music & Internet. So often, that last year I even published a book about it. It's called La musica liberata (something like "music got free") and tells the story of 15 years of digital sonic revolution: from MP3 to Napster, from iPod to Radiohead, from blogs to Pitchfork, from iTunes to Spotify. Data, people, songs, software, devices, sharing culture: all filtered through my personal experience of writer and, especially, music buff. Now, after one year and four months, I convinced the publisher to free the book, too. The full .pdf version of it is in free download, until Christmas. You can get more infos about it on my italian blog Il Pozzo di Cabal. And you can download it directly from here. Yes, the book is in italian, likely not your favourite language of choice. But, ehi, it's free! And maybe someone in the great Interweb can be interested on it. So, if you please, download it and spread the voice. :o)

Castelli voice: off. cabal voice: on. Here it is the Spotify soundtrack of the book: 50 songs that appear in the book, chosen for exquisite technology reasons (Ok Go, NIN, Propellerheads, Beatallica, Suzanne Vega mother of MP3 and Rick Astley lord of rickrollers) or for more personal perversions (U2, Heroes del Silencio, Sigur Ros, Doves, Karo, the grunge era).
