Default Re: The end of physical media.

Sorry, I was trying to make the point that a number of classical composers wrote music on an industrial scale, under pressure to keep turning out stuff for their patrons on a regular basis. Amongst this there were special works, the ones they wanted to do out of their own interest. The sheer amount of Bach's output for the organ is staggering, but a lot of it isn't very special compared to the better pieces... the ones I'll bother to learn and practice.

Modern pop pap isn't anything like as interesting as most of the classical stuff, and on top of it all, the recordings are compressed into less than 3dB dynamic range.

There seems to be a modern formula, and very very few dare stray from it. The few that do mustn't be overlooked. They are the only hope left.
