Kinda makes me wonder if the next big thing in audio formats will be .wax.cyl

D. Michael McIntyre

I have to admit I was too scared to read the Rolling Stone article.* On a positive note, I've noticed two things:

There is a countertrend in the* arena of* DIY music; a trend for people to participate in music-making rather than merely being consumers.* Witness the so-called "recreational music" movement for adults, or, my own obsession, early childhood music.* Children exposed to participatory music from an early age make music as a normal part of life; it becomes as natural as speech for them.* I just wonder if people who are used to making their own music, often on acoustic instruments, will be satisfied with the sound of lossy compression--especially if they've been exposed to live singing and playing since birth.

The other thing I noticed, when I was taking audio production classes last year, was a very acute awareness about these problems among 19-22 year old future audio engineers, performers, and producers.* I heard these young adults lament the bad sound of Mp3's and brick-wall mastering.* If the next generation that produces music is this aware, it gives me a little hope, especially if they are producing music for people whose ears have been sensitized to the nuances of musical sound from an early age.
