Technology is a boon and bane for music in digital era. Here’s why. – The San Diego Union-Tribune

For better and worse, music is here, there and virtually everywhere.

Thanks to the digital revolution and countless new apps, there has never before been more music available, via more platforms, to more people. The resulting explosion of options has irrevocably changed the way we make, access, digest and even think about music.

Those options range from Mp3 players, iPods, iTunes, Spotify, Pandora and other downloading and streaming formats to the growing use of artificial intelligence, virtual reality imagery and so many music-related apps it almost requires another app just to keep track of them all.

That’s the good news and the bad news. It’s a conundrum that only seems to accelerate as each new technological breakthrough makes accessing music more convenient — and, as often as not, more problematic.
