A deposit appeared in my account today and so I am sharing it as an artist data point…even though few people give a hoot about this anymore

To keep this resource accessible and low-cost, we have opted to use Spotify links for audio examples for tracks which otherwise would cause OMT to incur considerable copyright costs. This book is best accessed if the user has a Spotify Premium account. Student accounts are half the cost of normal premium accounts, so we are hopeful that this does not dissuade many users. Sign up for Spotify Premium for Students here.
We also state that Spotify is well-known to be bad for artists because of its pay scheme. We encourage readers to support artists directly by purchasing music when they can.
