Hey guys,

lets discuss this topic. What is the future of music and where are we going? Do you like it?

I have heard too many times comments like "what is with music nowadays" when people hear stuff like this (and I agree with them) :



Do you like the today's trends and where we are headed?

Well, we have more possibilities to make music these days. Using certain technology, thresholds are lower to create music; whether it is music I personally like is a different matter. But I can only applaud the fact that there's a lot of people out there making music, in whatever way.

There's, inevitably, less focus, percentage wise, on the usual instruments like piano, guitar, etc, but there's still a lot of great music being created, even using just the more 'classical' instruments. In fact, I'd say there's more music available now, from artists that you'd normally not have access to, given the low threshold of making it available to a large audience.

So, for me, yes, I'm happy with where we are today in musical trends smile.gif

JLL was great, but I will take Little Richard, this is from about 1964.




You can hear where John Lennon got some of his early influence. John really had a beautiful voice then.

I guess it is the way it has to be.
I'd rather drown in hit music than in rock or blues. If they had played rock continously for 35 years I'd be pretty sick of it now. I can avoid the hit music and I can still find nuggets of my liking. Mostly because of internet and places like this. I guess there is more music made now in the genres I like than in the '70-ies, they just don't get the same media attention, esp. with MTV going mainstream.

So, happy with it? I don't know. I guess it has to be that way.

I agree with blindwillie, it is nice that rock music is some kind of a niche and we're not flooded with it. Actually, there are some pop songs I really like, and I also like some of what I call "kiddy rock", meaning Miley Cyrus and stuff. They could produce worse music. I think it is great that music comes in so many different styles nowadays, so there is something for everyone and thanks to the internet, you can easily get music from bands who aren't well known.

I think that live music will be less and less popular, technology and internet is taking over.

I don't even really know what the "trends" are, if I had to judge by what they air on the radio over here I'd say I don't like it. As for pubs etc. they seem to be switching to "dance" music lately, and the kids seem to dig hip hop for some reason hehe.

As for me, thank God for internet radio, last fm, spotify, etc. There's new great music to discover every day, rock is alive, metal is alive, alternative too, which means I'm happy smile.gif

I was lucky enough to get to be in the live morphwiz chat with Jordan Ruddess a week or so ago, And I think that technologies like that will be a strong future for music. Electronically based instruments have so much more expression and diversity to them now, That they have become as capable as any guitar. So I think we will see a lot more of that, And I don't mean techno music. Not programmed beats made on an acid trip, but full-fledged compositions and songs.

That being said, I think there will always be a group of people, however small or big, who will want to play stuff from "ages past". Look at the bullet boys, new band of the past few years, but the sound is very 60s and 70s. Warbringer is only a few years old yet there sound is dead on the early 80s thrash scene.

It will progress unending I think, But I think the basics will always live on vividly somewhere.

I personally believe that music is becoming more and more simple by structure, and more shallow by meaning and message. At least widely popular music or mainstream is. Which is sad. I wish that somehow Bach or Chopin or Beethoven or some other guy would reincarnate and continue with his genius work in this century smile.gif

Music will always be an endless travel, I think we all agree smile.gif
I personally don't like much of today's commercial music - in the style of Lady Gaga. Mainstream doesn't have to be that bad, if you understand the same under mainstream as me (James Morrison for example). Radio hits often have the same structure nowadays, but if the music is played with heart and the lyrics mean something, I like it.
And I personally like the involvement of Internet in the music. I like a lot of these Indie-Rock Groups, and it gives me the opportunity to listen to great, handmade music! Let's remember that bands like Arctic Monkeys became popular through Myspace!
Internet will add new possibilities to music, we can't imagine at this point. Who would have dreamt in 2000 of this Web 2.0? What will be in ten years? I don't know. There will always be good and bad music - there are much more people now who are able to publice their music, so there will be more crap, but I think there will always be very good music.
And for me, classical composers like Bach and Beethoven will always stay genius and will always be an imagination for modern music. Only to compare, if Beethoven really gets loud with chords, it has, in a way, the same purpose as if a metalman uses his power chords biggrin.gif (yeah, it is not a fair comparison, but the musical idea is the same).

Very nice thread, Bogdan!

Popular music IS quite shallow, but also, there is a certain trend that I like, and that is to make music relatively simple in compared to traditional music. Simple melodies and harmonies, that is to stay. But, that is quite deceiving, because focus is shifted on various other musical elements, rhythm, tempo, arrangements, and finally SOUND.
For example, I like FatBoySlim, I think that his compositions are very good, when you analyze it, you find 2 chords, simple melodies, but with tremendous emphasis on sound, rhythm and so on. Finally, you get the sound that is very contentful, though it may seem simple and shallow.
That trend is spreading over jazz music, nu-jazz and so on. It doesn't have many chords really, but it is innovative in its structure.

Future is in electronic music, use of effects, new instruments, new devices, it will only be different, not necessarily worse. Different times, different sounds, notes stay the same smile.gif
