The Technological Evolution of Music
As time passes by and things change, music changes as well. We now hear that music is "Not the same as it used to be back in the day" or this is not creative "it is just a sample of what someone who was famous did before" but is that necessarily a bad thing. I think it just means that people now have a way of being inspired to remix things of the past, not by completely changing it but by simply allowing others to experience their interpretation of it. The evolution of music and the technology associated with it is helping with this change. It can be good in a sense that everyone can be creative. It can also be bad because is it really creative and original if you are remixing someone else's' idea?

Pros- More people can be creative, and exressive. It is not limited to the people who have the funds anymore because new technology is now being created to help anyone who is willing to try, give it a shot.

Cons- Anyone can do it, the peofessionals are now competing with ordinary people who just made an idea of theirs come to life. Is it a hit,  its the consumers choice. 

The evolition of music is allowing anyone who is willing an opportunity.

Ackera Williams's insight:

Will it come down to music just being sreamed instead of purchased, can CD's be the end? Digital  music did change the game, but now music streaming services are also impacting the music world greatly. Pro- You do not necessarily have to own it to listen to it, it is free with the ads, and to remove them you pay a monthly fee. You get to listen to what you want as well as similar tracks. Con- Skips are limited, and you are not getting the best quality of music. Your experience is based on your internet connection.
