A Musical Millennium

Did You Know? What’s the difference? A note is seen. A tone is heard. The performer reads the note, then plays or sings the tone.

A New Millennium

Big news! We’re reached plug n play status! 😀 Actually, the point and click generation never had it so easy. Thanks to not only personal computers but tablets, palm-helds, smartphones, jet packs, and digital apps of every kind therein, our music is literally right at our fingertips. We carry it with us.

It seems the more we reach for comfort and convenience, the more we lose touch. I suppose the sad thing is that ever since the machine age, people are being programmed to serve the system of machines rather than the other way around.

So where does the music land in all this?

Music certainly is still being made and played by real musicians. Some use the bots to make their music while others stick to old school reliability, instruments. We’re not giving up what’s real nor the real purpose of it all.

The wonderful thing is that there are still musicians out there carrying a six-string on their back making real music and sharing it with others. We’ve still got the high school bands, the Friday night gigs, street performers, and the theatre. Most every city has its own symphony orchestra. The original musical concept, producing art, somehow survives.
