Flows and notions

“You didn’t need specialist poets to create this kind of musicalised language, and the diction is very simple, so this was clearly a democratising form of literature. We’re getting an exciting glimpse of a form of oral pop culture that lay under the surface of classical culture.”

In 1989, British scientist Tim Berners-Lee invented the World Wide Web. By the dawn of the ’90s, the internet had awakened everyone to new technological possibilities. Similarly, music and music listeners were becoming more forward-thinking than ever before. Grunge and heavy metal met in the gauntlet; hip-hop traveled from the underground to the pop charts (N.W.A. out-charted R.E.M. in 1991); pop music became more daring; electronic music began its ascent from small clubs to festival stages. 1991 marked the start of this aggressive reinvention. It was a year that shaped the music we’ve heard for the last three decades. Even today, these 13 albums that were once in rotation in six-disc Sony stereos are responsible for current digital playlists. - Thus, when the internet was demilitarized and the general public started trickling - and then rushing - to use it, there was a widespread hope that we might break free of the tyranny of concentrated, linear programming (in the sense of “what’s on,” and “what it does to you”).

Refined tastes intertwine with semi-random surf trails to become indistinguishable from each other. Timelines fray, genealogies wander. These under-the-radar exchanges generally happen outside commercial spheres, adding to the fertile mess. You must sift through a lot of junky MP3s to uncover the great ones, but in the end, all the world’s sonic secrets are out there, clumped irregularly across the Internet’s flat and mighty sprawl. A catchy genre name or evocative creation myth can make the output of a few friends appear as a bustling scene to outside eyes, and the online hype can turn into a selffulfilling prophecy if global excitement trickles down into actual gigs.






Apple Buys Startup That Makes Music With AI to Fit Your Mood | Time

The idea is to generate dynamic soundtracks that change based on user interaction. A song in a video game could change to fit the mood, for instance, or music during a workout could adapt to the user’s intensity.

Comment from YT:
I remember when I was growing up, where TV’s were basic that didn’t have all the surround sound speakers, the local FM station would do a simulcast of Star Wars, while it was aired on TV. My dad had our TV hooked up to our stereo system. It was great. Sounded like that you had a mini movie theatre
