Do you think Internet improved or worsened music and culture in general?
Yesterday I was talking about this with a few friends and I was the only one thinking it actually improved the general situation.
Yes it did bring a big pile of garbage in but it also made our culture a lot more globalized, free and varied.
It's better and worse.
Better because less known artists now get attention and music is easy to share.
Worse because your genuine taste gets ripped on until you no longer actually like the music you like.
Both better and worse. For example smaller acts that previously wouldn't have been recognized are known which is great. But now acts are more oriented on pumping out a few good songs as opposed to a good album. More emphasis on singles really makes certain genres less profound.
I can listen to any music i want at a click of button now, classical, rap, rock, pop, electronic, country, punk, old, new, foreign, domestic,obscure, mainstream.
I can listen to mounds and mounds of music.
Before the internet you had to buy cd's you had to have money, or work at a record store to have this much access.
Also the internet has destroyed music business jews and mtv, and corporate influence, which is a good thing.
I want to go back in time and whisper in kurts ear, dudeeeee just wit for youtbe and soundcloud you wont be a slave to these corporate fucks.
But on the other hand the internt has destroyed mystery, i had no idea of musicians real personality before twitter, now i know a lot of them are fucking retards.
Another thing is is it just me or are there no longer music scenes anymore, like the seattle sound or the Memphis blues.
Music is no longer localized, its globalized on the internet which kind of kills creativity when you think about it, now every hipster fuck with access to p4k is tailor making their music to what p4k likes so now every musician around the world are just bland clones
Still OP here...got one more question.
Do you believe that years from now "plebs" will look back at big names (e.g. David Bowie, Miles Davis, Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin and others) like they do today? If yes who do you think will be the next ones?
You ever look at old billboard charts and realize how disposable pop music is?
It weren't a few years ago nelly furtado, the black eyed peas, and gwen stefani were huge pop stars.
Musicians get remembered for different things, being apart of pop culture, or nostalgia, or making good music.
People will remember guys like radiohead and kanye west.
They wont remember flo rida and call me maybe girl
>genuine taste gets ripped on until you no longer actually like the music you like.
Lol, you weak faggot. /mu/ really hates some of my favourite stuff but I've never stopped loving it. If anything, I love it more because I've been looking into it deeper in trying to defend it.
