I don’t want to get into details but I work in the music industry and have for quite some time now and it’s safe to say that generally speaking, the entire thing is going to shit and has been for roughly the last 10 years or so especially.
Quality control has officially gone out the fucking window and it’s not just the industry to blame, the fans are part of the problem. The people out there consuming this shit are too dumb to care and/or too lazy to dig a little deeper to find anything with real substance. It’s the same reason why things like reality TV are so popular. Until fans start demanding more from the content produced by people nothing is going to change.
The thing about the Internet and technology progressing the way it has over the last little while is it’s this complete double edged sword in the ways that because anyone can have access to software to make music, or make a music video, or make some shitty movie they do so simply because they can.
You’d think this would be good for people with actual talent and in some ways of course it is – it’s easier to get your stuff out there nowadays and get it seens and heard – but on the otherside of that there is a HUGE influx of people who think they are the next Madonna/Timberland/Steven Spielberg Mario Testino and more often than not this easy access to produce “art” ends up being a platform for no talent clowns to share their bullshit to the general zombie public who in turn gobble this shit up.
I don;t know where this was going and I don’t know how to end this but the bottom line is making music doesn’t make someone a composer, hopping on a mic doesn’t make you a singer or rapper, having an expensive camera (set on AUTO for fuck sakes) doesn’t make a photographer and having an HD video camera doesn’t make you a film maker and/or a music video director.
PS. This sucks.
