Moby Video Main Points

Posted: November 6, 2011 in Uncategorized
  1. Record companies are falling apart an artists are becoming more self sufficient.
  2. Record companies won’t be around in five years.
  3. No loyalty in record companies

In these three points there are a few ideas that I agree with and a few that I disagree with as well. I agree with the third point that there is no loyalty in record companies. It is evident that many record companies want to pick up an artist with a hot single and has potential to have a strong fan base, but many times the artist will end up being a one hit wonder because the company does not develop the artist and does not have a strong follow up single and as a result the artist will end up falling off the map. I also agree with part of the first point. I agree that more artists are becoming self sufficient, but I do not believe that record companies are falling apart. As technology has advanced the opportunity for artists to record on their own has greatly increased and as a result many artists do not have to rely on a big record company to produce their music. But most of these artists are using a microphone that they plug into their computer and run through a recording program that they downloaded. This leads to rough quality recording, and brings about the need for a record company who has the tools and the people that are required to produce a good quality sound on a recording which is why I disagree with the second point that record companies won’t be around in five years. I believe there will always be a need for people who are trained and skilled in a specific area over those who are not. That is one of the main reasons why a college education is so important today, because employers want to hire someone who is trained and has the skills required of a specific field.
