I thought that this article was kind of sad to read. The main gist is found in the first paragraph: "internet downloading and MP3 players are creating a generation of people who do not seriously appreciate songs or musical performances."
I had hoped that the arrival of MP3 players and satellite radio would mean a new-found appreciation for music, but the easy availbility of it may mean the opposite. http://www.breitbart.com/news/2006/01/10/060110164416.p4z0rnx6.html
I hadn’t thought about this potential outcome back in February of 2005 when I made this post about "Music Overload."
So how do we go about making sure people appreciate the work behind the art that is music?
