PATRON.net is "a whole new economic model," Rundgren said. "Nobody has ever characterized the (musical) product in a way that's unique to the (Internet) medium. As a creator, you can bring your work to people pretty much with minimal overhead."
Although Rundgren is the only artist on PATRON.net, other bands have expressed interest, and Rundgren said labels could also use the technology as a marketing tool. The concept can be previewed at www.tr-i.com/.
