It was an incredible experience going deep into an industry that is so close to us but normally we don’t spend much time thinking about it. It’s interesting to realize that tech is the main drive for this industry. But no matter how big a company is or how big the impact it has caused in the industry, nothing is forever. I started in the past and the deeper I dug, the more I saw that pattern is circular, always repeating. Individuals being taken over by big corporations later gave way to the power of the individual again. Entrepreneurs building world-changing technologies based on their own inventions, from 1500 until today. The history of the industry has always been dotted with naysayers, predicting the demise of the industry, but in the end something new always comes out shifting the way the industry works and it continues onward. No different from the past, I see the industry continuing to change the way artists make money. The industry will never die, it will just keep being reinvented.
