Music in The Brave New World


A key part of the 'magic' of music is the interaction and sharing of sounds and ideas. Although Music continues to be played to live audiences - thank heavens, many see the Internet as a either the replacement or the evil enemy of future musical development.

As far as "live" audiences go,
there are also audiences connected through Radio, Television and here on the Internet.
I think there is enormous future potential for Independent Live Stream Music Performance - Live Music Feeds. But it may be some time before this service is widely available at the more Independent Level ( many bridges to cross ). In the meantime video still provides a great way to show your potential audience what yo do "live" so it is still possible to use video as a means of getting people to your gigs and to pursuade event managers to put you on in the first place.

New collaborations
,
are now easier to engage with. Many Community and Networking Sites, are there to connect artists and musicians. In addition EJamming has recently been having successful tests with new on-line music services connecting global musicians. So it may be that future musical development turns on-line, and it maybe that this will be a massive market for the future.

Many see the Internet as another nail-in-the-coffin of live music,
Just as it was predicted that Radio, Film and Television would be the same thing.
The fact that ticket sales last year grossed more revenue than recorded material , is proof that the opposite is true. And there are still small venues and pubs, putting on live events as well as the large record breaking Stadium events.

To put it in a nutshell,
I believe that Music thrives on change, collaboration and positive forward thinking.
Which is one of the virtues that Music inferes upon those closely associated with this sensory Art. The Musician is always thinking at least one bar ahead of the audience. So if you think the Internet is a bad thing for Music please think again.

It is the biggest leap forward in Human Communications Technology,
since the advent of the telephone and the moving film image.
  • Explore and seize the opportunities out there.
  • The Internet is here to stay.
  • If you thought not, Get over it.
