The Ebb and Flow Of Music

Over the years, music has evolved, but the impact has always been the same.  From following the latest pop stars to taking a music history class as an elective in college, music remains a huge part of our culture. There are even television channels dedicated to nothing but music!  With instant access to our smartphones and tablets, the latest music news is only a click away. The world we live in today is a fascinating one.  The freedoms we have to like, or dislike, certain genres empowers and creates a musical economy that thrives with the ebb and flow of cultural demand. Centuries come and go with musical greats that paved the way for new styles and techniques.  From different musical genres like classical to hard rock, the influence of past musicians can be heard weaved throughout each. 

Music creates emotion and emotions drive humanity.  That is why the music industry has grown into such a money making machine.  Smart business men and woman figured out how to capitalize on the music industry and have been very successful riding the musical waves.  In some instances, they might even be creating the wave with powerful media coverage to promote their latest and greatest star.

With so many creative outlets for music today, it would seem music has lost some of its novelty.  Or has it?   Are we currently surfing through a season of musical stagnancy?  The answers to these questions depend on what one may consider as creative music.  For the younger generation, Taylor Swift’s music the greatest thing out there right now.  For those in their 30’s and 40’s, longing to see artists like U2, the Cure, and Pearl Jam hit mainstream would be heaven on earth.

To each his own, it could be said, when it comes to music.  Personal preference is something we are all entitled.  Music businesses and the media will promote what sells and right now, Taylor Swift sells.

Does the music drive the culture or the culture drive the music?  Perhaps that is another topic for another day, but it is something interesting to ponder.  In the cultural dark ages where there was much struggle, what people would call “musical geniuses” emerged bringing a fresh perspective to a gloomy outlook.  Looking at the top charts today, is it possible to assess or even judge the culture we live in?  It would be safe to say, just by observing history, the answer to that question would be yes.  Yes, music is, in fact, a direct reflection of the culture.  At least, this applies to mainstream music.

What about the less publicized musicians that you don’t hear much of on the radios or music televisions?  With avenues like Youtube and Vimeo, getting your voice out there has never been easier! 

Music is all around us!  We can access it in an instant.  Supporting up and coming musicians has never been easier.  So, go out there and surf the web for the genre of your choice.  Who knows, you just might find the perfect song for you today!
