Is Indie Music Dead? | LostinSound.org

Is Indie Music Dead? | LostinSound.org | Different Types of Music | Scoop.it

This blog post discusses the increasing polarization in the music industry between the starving independent musician and the multi-platinum-pop-idols.

 

While most avid music listeners might be aware of this trend, it's likely that few have really explored some of the hard figures that go along with it (I know I hadn't done so very thoroughly before reading this).  The dollar amounts for producing, marketing and composing different songs - from indie numbers to smash hits - are touched on within this article.  A variety of artists from David Bowie to Dead Mau5  to Rihanna are explored as well.

 

The article does a very good job of presenting the facts and financials and then interpreting what they mean.  While you have to read the entire article (and you definitely should) to fully appreciate the conclusion that it comes to, the optimistic thesis is that indie music is in fact not dead and that while the internet has dissolved some of the 'old music industry's' most profitable fascets, it's brought with it many new ones that are harder to attribute a monetary value to.

 

Many of the Scoops on this page are currently related to specific artists and happenings within the music industry, this one is a very valuable snapshot of the industry as a whole.  Definitely worth a read.

List of electronic music genres - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

This is a list of electronic music genres, consisting of genres of electronic music, primarily created with electronic musical instruments or electronic music technology. A distinction has been made between sound produced using electromechanical means and that produced using electronic technology.[1] Examples of electromechanical sound producing devices include the telharmonium, Hammond organ, and the electric guitar. Purely electronic sound production can be achieved using devices such as the Theremin, sound synthesizer, and computer.[2]

In its early development electronic music was associated almost exclusively with Western art music, but from the late 1960s on the availability of affordable music technology, particularly of synthesisers, meant that music produced using electronic means became increasingly common in the popular domain of rock and pop music, resulting in major electronically based sub-genres.[3] After the definition of MIDI in 1982 and the development of digital audio, the creation of purely electronic sounds and their manipulation became much simpler.[4] As a result synthesizers came to dominate the pop music of the early 1980s.[5] In the late 1980s, dance music records made using only electronic instruments became increasingly popular, resulting in a proliferation of electronic genres, sub-genres and scenes.[6] In the new millennium, as computer technology became even more accessible and music software advanced, interacting with music production technology made it possible to create music that has no relationship to traditional musical performance practices, leading to further developments and rapidly evolving sub-genres.[7]

Introducing... the music you'll be hearing on your radio next year

Introducing... the music you'll be hearing on your radio next year | Different Types of Music | Scoop.it
An Irish country-rock band and a Native American rapper are among 15 acts vying for the title of the BBC's Sound of 2013 – the annual award which attempts to predict which musicians are due to hit the big time next year.

 

In this selection taken from independent.ie readers are presented with a list of artsist who are predicted to reach stardom in the upcoming year.  I was unfamiliar with the title of "BBC's Sound of XXXX", however, apparently they are quite accurate with their guesses.

 

As the author Kevin Rawlinson states in this article, "Most of the artists included on past lists have gone on to have successful careers. But sometimes, it underestimates the star quality of certain acts: Lady Gaga came only sixth in 2009, but has now sold an estimated 23 million albums and has almost 32 million Twitter followers."  Even with a sixth place estimation of Lady Gaga, it still seems like the folks at BBC know what they're talking about.  

 

For each of the fifteen artists mentioned a short blurb is written about  the artist's current position in the music industry.  The default photo for this article is of an Irsh country-rock band, Little Green Cars.  Ironically, even though they are the most prominently depicted, the description of the band simply states, "Absolutely nothing new; unsure how anyone can really get excited about them."  Based on this authors opinion I doubt we should anticipate them ending up with the first pick for the award.
