Music industry has been shaping the world for centuries. From classical music in 17th and 18th centuries, to Rock, Pop and rap songs of today.
At first, musical notes were written down on paper, so that you could play them at home on your own instruments. Then, in 1877, Thomas Edison invented the phonograph, which used tinfoil, and later – wax-coated cardboard to record sound. We saw the ascent of vinyl records in the early part of the 20th century, then came audio cassette tapes, followed closely by compact discs, and then, finally – digital files like MP3s.
All through history, musicians have been releasing their incredible albums through the most readily available sound storage medium of the time. But what about today’s emerging artists? At iApp Design, we believe that apps are the next media platform for independent musicians and music labels. Soon, you will find new albums being released as apps, which would also add a ton of interactive options to the overall experience and enjoyment of music.
