The internet has destroyed the music industry. The internet has revitalized the music industry. These contradictory statements are equally true, and Firewall of Sound charts the efforts of independent bands, labels, and retailers to navigate this ever-changing landscape, each trying to embrace (or at least stay ahead of) developments from MySpace to viral marketing to underground venues. Features interviews with Neutral Milk Hotel, the Mountain Goats, the AV Club’s Nathan Rabin, and others.
FIREWALL OF SOUND directed by Devin DiMattia
(2010, USA, 63 min., Video, Documentary, Chicago premiere)
