Over 73% of musicians suffer from mental illnesses, with over 16.2 million musicians worldwide enduring the torment of psychological disorders.

In times with massive information and technology, music creators to keep up with trends, must produce works quickly, often neglecting their mental health and depleting their creative energy.

Music permeates our lives, yet around 60% of music creators work without compensation, and on average, musicians only receive 12% of the total profits. Is music worthless? Turning on a music streaming platform during daily commutes has become a routine, but the profits that musicians earn from it are minimal. Taking Spotify as an example, when a song is listened to 10,000 times, the creator only shares less than $1. Talented creators with boundless potential are often the ones most easily sacrificed by technology.
