The future of music

“I will not make records any more”.

The next generation will not respond to music the way I used to. 

There is no physical representation of music through discs, sleeves etc.

Artists are allowing free downloads from the net.

New business models are being developed, changing companies. Technology changes both for producer and listener.

“I dont want indie cred – lets play the stadiums!”

The pace of change is furious – in a few tens of years everything is new!
