The performance and expression of musical thought has changed dramatically with the introduction of technology: Microphones, vinyl, speakers, radio, electric guitars, music videos, computers, DAWs, MP3s, MySpace... all of these have altered and expanded the ways
in which music is expressed and disseminated.
In an exploration of music related technologies, common issues in the employment of these technologies will be discussed, suggestions will be made, and an exchange of ideas will - hopefully - commence: With each article, a thread in the Muse's Muse forum, will be opened up to discuss points made or issues discussed in the article, and you - the reader -
are invited to participate in expressing your own views on the subject
So please read the article, and then make your opinion heard.
