Music & Technology – A Winning Formula
The music industry has expanded its ecosystem by including not just the creators of the content, but also device manufacturers and service providers among others. Apple was one of the first movers in this space by making music available for online purchase via iTunes.
Digital music and music streaming have now become mainstream. It’s present in every sphere of one’s life, be it at home, working out in the gym or in your car. The way we listen and consume music has also changed. Start-ups and incumbents are building gadgets that enhance our listening experience by mining the data of our musical interests and listening behaviour. These gadgets can track our listening habits and moods, link to various streaming music services, and stream information back to the producers and thereby enabling them to better understand the audience reaction to the music.
