  • Hi guys, Imogen Heap -Just for Now This artist is pretty talented. But I was wondering how she fits into our class discussions. She definitely uses technology in a creative way. Similar to the guys of Atomic Tom. Atomic Tom -Take me Out I guess Atomic Tom relate to the phenomena spoken of in last weeks reading. They definitely […]

  • Yeah, it was a shocker observing the amount of independents.

    Thanks for commenting =)

  • Potent force to be reckoned with indeed. Confession: Tap Tap Revenge got me into Neon Trees and Death Cab for Cutie. In response to your question of loving a game more for the artist, I definitely perform better in Tap Tap games that include songs I like. I boast a 300,000+ on Linkin Park, DCFC, […]

    Lovely read. Isn’t it interesting how entrepreneurs find a business in almost anything? Goodman explains that pop was a visual performance. This indeed helped in promoting the artist’s persona in contrast to earlier era’s that relied on live performances to frame them. I remember when I was 12 or so, being a huge fan of […]

  • The D/A conversion in many regards, is reminiscent of the conversion from acoustic recordings to Shellac. It was noted by Millard that DVD’s became more popular than VHS and actually attending movies because of its price, bonus scenes, and sound. The common thread in all our readings is found in the way music was used […]

  • They indeed proved uniqueness. But it was just a bit too extreme. Although the idea pursued the extreme, in one of the articles they spoke of safety pins being forced through body parts. To me that’s pain, not fashion.

  • Larry Norman: Why Should the Devil Have All the Good Music Religious music is a good source of examination for the effects of modernization by virtue of the fact that it is one of the longest enduring musical styles that has persisted and adapted.

  • Punk music evolved from more than just an economic down turn. Tricia Henry Young goes beyond the view of punk as response to “harsh economic conditions” (Young p.66). She explains the social conditions taking place, offering an in depth look of the birth of one of punk’s most influential bands: The Sex Pistols . According to Young, […]

  • The Americans colonized our subconscious. -Wim Wenders Millard 11, 12 & Coyle. While the bigger companies were cashing of the African-American audience through the promotion of R&B, the independents sought a new flavor to the musical palate. The independent companies dominated the Billboard in the early rock n’ roll period. Millard mentions that “ By 1960 there […]

    Ahh! why is my last paragraph messed up? Cannot seem to get it aligned.

    Indeed, it is both art and money that we need for a successful business. You are right that the issue within the Christian genre is multifaceted, beyond the mere scope of the initial question posed (art or money). I read further on the topic as I am considering covering groundbreaking artists in the Christian genre […]

  • Money or art? Which would we choose as an artist? If we opt art, I think the sound and feel might be purer than mainstream, but this process may conclude in the sale of fewer records. If we choose money, we would most likely conform to the likings of the mass audience. As Leadbelly and the […]

  • It is interesting to analyze how the progression of sound snowballed into what it is today. The Great Depression limited pockets to necessities. Customers of the home record decreased, while they flocked in great masses to be a part of the “talking picture.” The slump in economy represented the start of conglomerates. Seeing the business […]
