Mark Kozelek - Outsider Artist?

edited September 2016 in Mark Kozelek

I was reading online about the book 'Songs in the Key of Z: The Curious Universe of Outsider Music' and came across a section that seemed to epitomise Koz:

"Music that is exploited through conventional music channels has been revised, remodeled, and re-coifed; touched-up and tweaked; Photoshopped and focus-grouped by the time it reaches the listener, to the point that it is music by committee that is second-guessed by a large team of record company staff.

On the other hand, since outsider musicians have little target audience, so they are autonomous, and able to go through an intensely solipsistic process and create a singular artistic vision. Outsider artists have much greater individual control over the final creative contour, either because of a low budget or because of their inability or unwillingness to cooperate with or trust anyone but themselves."
