one thing though. music /=/ just indie and pop
There'll always be people making noise (cos no one who does so honestly expects to make money out of it), same with the heavier genres, and avant garde (cos there will always be people pushing the boundaries). I assume it's the same for electronic music too? Where you can make music with laptops and stuff.
Music, as a concept, will always be around and there will always be lots of people interested in it. But that isn't a very interesting thing to write about compared to "MUSIC IS DYING!!" I guess. Now, if you were to talk about specific genres dying...
Have you read that article sean?
In forty years time when the Stones have popped their clogs, the biggest tours will probably be the Kings of Leon and The Arcade Fire.
It's just the way it works time is one of the greatest assets to exposure.
On a side note, who the fuck are the Rascal Flatts?
Response to the article, not the post btw.
of one kind or another has been around for about a decade. And music has yet to die.
Purely from a consumer's point of view, music is very good health. I'm personally overwhelmed by the amount of good new music out there. I have no idea how individual artists are faring but it can't be too bad if they're still making music, can it?
There doesn't seem to need to be a lot of 'investment' in music, as there is a massive overabundance of the stuff - too much amazing music to begin comprehending. People make music for non-financial reasons so therefore it doesn't matter. And for christ's sake stop quoting Jaron Lanier, the guy is an idiot who fails worse than most so-called "experts" to understand the internet.
there is evidence music was being made so i think it'll do just fine with or without people looking to make money out of it
long before evidence of civilisation
