Zach Branham's curator insight, October 11, 2013 5:33 PM

Technology like this allows any person wanting to spread their music or sound on a global level without needing a giant label to do so. Apps such as Soundcloud reaches the far reaches and crevasses of the world to create a community of people sharing music. This is allowing people to not always use a professional studio and label, but allowing them to produce themselves.

 

Here are some pros: The average artist will be able to record and share their music with the world without spending a large sum of money to record professionally and get a label to push the album into the world. This also helps to put out artists that some people refer to as "The Greatest Unknown Artist", It helps everybody get themselves out there and reach for the stars.

 

Cons: People will migrate to these cheaper faucets of mass media hysteria in order to save money, they will start doing everything themselves. In turn this creates a financial strain on recording studios and producers who will have a decreased workload. Industry jobs will start becoming fewer, smaller studios who don't have V.I.P bands record will start closing because of lack of funding. It ultimately eliminates more industry jobs.

Though I do not have a Twitter, I find this very interesting.  I think that if teachers did end up using this the kids who do have a twitter would get more involved in the assignment, but I'm not sure what they'd do with the kids like me would do during this lesson.  Overall,  I think this is a really cool and unique idea that could probably done with other social networking sites aswell.
