Philter Posted October 23, 2002 Share Posted October 23, 2002 Oh forward thinking minds, do you have any ideas/theories/predictions/drug-induced-visions of where we are headed in the music industry? I'm personally interested in topics about any part of the industry, including studio business, radio, internet, formats, musical styles... whatever affects you the most or is closest to your heart. Reasons I'm thinking about this lately- [list] [*]I'm just starting out as a small business owner in this here 2002- I've got a ProTools rig, some big studio experience, a decent ear, and a strong musical background. I'm doing OK so far finding artists to record and produce, but I'm worried about how long this will last- am I the wave of the future, or yesterday's news? [*]Can anyone truly be excited by the "new rock" "movement?" I saw [b]The White Stripes[/b] on SNL and I thought it was atrocious shit. Is that where pop music is headed? I don't understand or believe in that aesthetic so I can't imagine working towards it. Am I already old? [*] WTF is the deal with digital distribution? Where is the solution? How are artists going to earn a paycheck to pay for my services? How will it affect independent artists? Are the majors doomed? Or will we see even larger media conglomerates? [/list] I'm sure some of you have concerns and predictions along the same general topics. What do you think is going to happen? :confused: ---------------------------- Phil Mann http://www.wideblacksky.com Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
