- Meg Lethem was working at her pastry kitchen work one morning in Boston when she had a revelation.
Entrusted with picking the day’s soundtrack, she opened Spotify, then, at that point, endlessly flicked, continually looking for something to play. Nothing was ideally suited for the occasion.
She looked some more through a large number of playlists.
An awkwardly recognizable circle made her understand: she loathed how music was being utilized in her life.

“That was the issue,” she says. “Utilizing music, as opposed to having it be its insight … What sort of music am I going to use to set a temperament for the afternoon? What am I going to use to partake in my walk? I began not preferring what that implied.”
It wasn’t simply uninvolved tuning in; yet a helpful way to deal with music that felt like a formation of the streaming climate.
“I concluded that having music be this apparatus to [create] an encounter rather than an encounter itself was not something I was into,” she reflects. So she cut off her Spotify administration, and later, Apple Music as well, to zero in on making her listening more “locally established” and a lesser degree, a foundation experience.
