Life in general, and inevitably the concepts of music and of music-making, changed dramatically with the wide-spread adoption of electricity. Electricity is the precursor to current-day technology. Hopefully someone has written, somewhere, in some format, a concise dissertation about this; I would like to read it.
We are still at the beginning of this phase of musical experience. I like to think of this in terms of the Kubrick film “2001: A Space Odyssey”, and that the advent of electricity is another appearance of The Monolith.
smart music. in tasty bites. for your sonic satisfaction.
