Not too far in the recent past, making a living as a musician was a bit easier and the audiences paid a bit more attention to a live act, rather than just a guy with a laptop standing on a stage with headphones. In our current time frame, dance clubs are packed elbow to elbow, while many rock, punk and country acts are playing to less and less fans.
Could this be a paradigm shift in musical taste? Or, maybe fans are just wanting something new and the immediacy that they are used to, from the internet. Could these electronic musicians be tapping into a larger unknown sphere of influence that in actuality is a database of the pre-programmed minds of video game sounds, website dings modem rings? Hmmm.... Maybe the electronic music evolution is just another part of the internet revolution and music that has been performed in a style for decades is just going out of fashion.
