History of Recorded Music

Last week I gave a talk at the forum in Norwich on the History (and Future) of Recorded Music. I covered tape/vinyl/CD/download up to the whole spectrum of streaming services on offer today.

From that base I went on to discuss how the largest streaming service online (Youtube) has come to effect the Billboard top 100. Along with discussing interesting ways artists are making money from live shows, to premium products (including vinyl) and crowd funding like Kickstarter and IndieGoGo.

Hi, my names Ben and I’m traveling around the world with my bike, my paraglider and my laptop. Along the way I’m sharing the highs and lows of the life on the road. And my picks of the best places to bikepack, enjoy freeflight and work as a digital nomad. Each week I share a new video update, city guide or live streams with other adventurers I’ve met along the way.
