Where Is Digital Music Going?

Digital music is the most recent addition to the way we produce and listen to music. I do not know what the future has in store for music but it is inevitable that music will become much more advanced in the future. I mean, how much more advanced can it get. What better can we do than digital? Will it go in a spiritual direction?

There are so many genres of music today and each and everybody has their own preference to what they listen to. Music always tells a story of some sort, no matter what type of music you listen to, and even if there are no lyrics. You should know what I am talking about if you have some background about music and art.

Obviously, nothing can stop digital music. Digital music will continue to grow in the next coming years. I do not know where exactly it is heading but sooner or later we will reach the next step in music. As I am writing this I am listening to digital music on my computer getting really excited about what that next step in music is going to be? Hopefully I will still be around to witness it.

I literally listen to digital music as I step out of bed each morning and continue listening until I close my eyes at night, even after I fall asleep (I have the timer set on 30 minutes). Music will never fade away. It is perpetual and will always exist in one form or another. If you think about it music is just a couple of sound waves that produce one really unique result. Music is in a nature. Listen to the wind blowing through the trees, or the waves breaking on the beach… just another type of music.

Digital music has changed the way that we get to listen to our music. It has definitely improved, there no doubt about that. Maybe you have not been around then, but I can remember listening to my favorite 8 tracks as a small child. Then came cassettes. All analogue stuff. OK, I am not mocking analogue sources at all. In fact, some recording artists prefer recording analogue as it gives more warmth to their recordings. All I want to say really, is that technology is really amazing and that music technology is only going to continue to develop over time, which is something that I personally am really looking forward to.
