Over millions of years of evolutions, it's been only about 100 years until now that we can record music. And everything about music that humanity could ever dream of just happened recently: music that can be recorded to a quality that our ears can fully enjoy; music we can buy and keep all our life long; music we can bring with us and listen in tiny speakers that fit in our ears.
Even more: nearly everybody can learn and do music today; you can even download music easily from all over the world (try to think of a time when obtaining music was an easy task...); you can put nearly all music you love into a tiny mp3 player; it's not a luxury anymore: everybody can have access to all the music he ever wanted, the the poor to the rich; no more discrimination.
Again more: today, nearly every style of music we can think of have been made, so the choice is kind of unlimited so there's choice for every taste possible. You have computers at home that you can use to rip, burn, convert all your music and enjoy it in every way you want.
When I think about it, being a music lover, is there anything that could be better than this??!!!
Ha Ha !! I'm born in an era of time when I can 100% enjoy music!!
Think when you had to go to a Mozart concert to listen to music, and it was only high society admittance. Imagine having to ask a composer to play his song each time you want to listen to it. Imagine yourself as a caveman making a little song with bones that only you and some mates will enjoy only for this time. Music have always been hard to really enjoy, and when I think about all these millions years of evolution, I can say it's been only for 60-70 years that we can really enjoy music like we want. We are a very privileged generation of people.
I wanted to share this because I hope some will realize the immense chance we all have now.
