Contemporary media perpetuates all the old styles so that what’s popular today is what has been popular 30 years ago. If you are old enough and were around in the 60′s, you’d recall that the 30′s seemed to be an era where the music and styles contrasted greatly with the 60′s. Today in 2008 all of us hear much of the same that has been around in the 70′s as well as all the other eras including today ‘s contemporary music. This is thanks to the modern day varieties of music media that all of us have today. can be this surplus of variety is what prompts the “search for meaning in modern music”.
Electronic amplification has made the contemporary sound of electric guitars and drums dominate the sounds of today. computer recording with its click tracks and loops has furthermore played a ample part in the contemporary sound. The computer software “Band in a Box” and the like lets you build a song with pre-recorded loops and then copyright it as something original. personal ly, as a classically trained pianist and working musician, I do not like these facets of modern day music.
If you are a musician, what’s the majority necessary is to be creative as an individual whatever it’s you do. Create. Then share what you create. If you make a living at it, this influences how you create, but create just the same. If you just listen to music, you’ll obvious ly listen to what you want to, and you can find a greater variety to select from than ever before.
Personally, I’ve produced 3 cd’s. The first one has been original songs produced in a studio. My original premise for it has been to win a lover back to me. Then it became an resolution to make wonderful recordings of my non-commercial styled songs that furthermore involved the new (and married) love in my life. I’ve made living in music, mostly in academia (community college) and community theater concert and gatherings and marriage s. My other two cd’s are piano solo. One is classical and one is Christmas songs. None are commercial successes, but I make some resources from the recordings from downloads all over the world.
As a result I’m trying to make resources in other ways. And so I’m writing this article!
