Its great to see music spreading and its becoming more of a social media as opposed to art. Its somewhat scary because it discourages quality as opposed to quantity. I can remember when there was buzz around a new album. Now they leak and are out and no one stands in line or orders prereleases. Just goes to show that the live show is where the inudstry's money is shifting to.
Anyone who samples or performs a cover of a copyrighted song, especially a major-label one, in a YouTube video will likely interact with Content ID at some point. The system "fingerprints" tracks and...
Its great to see that people are getting credit for thier original work. However more and more people are copy cats. They just want fame they have no sens of who they are. They want to be someone else. This is destroying the art of creativity and the online music scene is all about doing thigns to become famous as opposed to contrinuting to the music industry.
Music has been a huge part of the Web since the days when Geocities-hosted fan sites offered Nirvana MIDI files and 15-second clips of songs in WAV format. A decade ago, we saw the rise and fall of Napster, the remnants of which were recently sold yet again.
From the ashes of Napster rose a new era of digital music, fueled in large part by the iPod and iTunes Music Store. The traditional structures of the music industry may never return to what they once were, and that's okay.
Today we have access to more music than ever before and the tools for creating it are available to anyone who can afford a laptop.Music is still a huge - and growing - part of the Web today. This year, we watched a number of trends unfold in the digital music space.
Picking the five most significant was no easy task, but we manage to narrow it down. This space is still evolving, and we can only imagine how it will look another decade from now.
It was intersting to read what rose from the aftermath of Napster and what would change the industry forever. I think its a pro that now more than ever it is easier to get your product to people. However its has brought the con of over load of abundance and the decline of quality sifting through thousands of duds to find a great song.
Its amazing to see how much time people are spending listening to music. Even more so than thier own productivity or social networking. Wow I think its amazing that these tools can bring it to the forefront of the mind. Although is it conveying music or "mixtapes" or "cover tunes." I have a hard time finding whats new and music to what some one sampled.
"Forget, for the moment, about how much Spotify pays out to artists.
Focus instead on the nature of those payouts.
In the olden days (i.e. 20 years ago), recording
artists had to convince you to fall for their music once — just long enough to buy a CD. Since the inception of pop music as a physical format, this need to impress the music buyer for a short length of time gave..."
The shift has brought to life the fact that less people are about the art ofthe album and more people just want singles. Contributing to the portion that the art of making music is dying and music is becoming to commercialized and processed. However some people still want to hear great music and use these tools to seek it out.
