Over the last weeks and months, I interviewed a couple of artists and fans of electronic music for my PhD research. I want to pick the topic of the digitalisation, especially in matters of music production and exploitation. The digitalisation is a larger topic, which can’t be handled in just one blog article. So, there is now guarantee for completeness, just want to state a few notes on this topic.
Among other aspects, the image of electronic music has been an important topic in these interviews. Both artists and music fans were quite annoyed by the situation that there is so much music released in these days, which would never have been released some years ago, because it sounds like crap. I blame the digitalisation and how music producers, record labels, and distributors use or do not use the digitalisation.
