The Rise and Fall of Music Sales

“We live in a world of music. Whether when driving to work or jamming out at home, people around the world like to have their favorite tunes playing in the background.

The past 50 years have seen many different music formats used to access these tunes, mirroring society’s shift from analog to digital. This video, created by James Eagle using data from the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), highlights sales of different music formats in the U.S. over the last 50 years.”

“Sonic Pi hasn’t infiltrated classrooms, but it has become a useful tool for experimental composers. That was what drew 29-year-old Melody Loveless, who is classically trained as a percussionist, into the scene. She has been making ethereal, downbeat compositions with code for close to two years now, offloading some of the heavy lifting of rhythm to a set of scripts. That is to say, her arms no longer hold her back. Instead she’s found a new muse in “having my brain sucked into the computer,” she said. “Something about live coding alleviated a lot of stress. If I’m nervous, the computer can stay on, and I can take my time making a decision,” Ms. Loveless said. With percussion, she said, “I had to be on at every measure, I had to be perfect.””

“Les baby-boomers sont-ils plus sages que les millennials? Les millenials sont-ils tous des enfants gâtés? Ces étiquettes qui collent aux générations sont souvent fausses. Mais nous sommes toujours pris dans l’air du temps, comme le rappelle la définition sociologique du terme «génération»: groupe d’âge façonné par des événements et des influences historiques et sociaux communs.”

“’Over the last two years, we’ve shown Google irrefutable evidence again and again that they are displaying lyrics copied from Genius,’ said Ben Gross, Genius’s chief strategy officer, in an email message.

The app was first reported as in development in late October.On Lasso, users can record themselves dancing and lip-syncing to music, similar to what they can already do on TikTok.

“Si l’industrie musicale dans son ensemble, des titans du disques aux labels indépendants, semble désormais gangrenée par le phénomène, certains audiophiles ont décidé de mener bataille.
