Change in Music

Posted: May 08 2015

We start off with the 7-inch 45-RPM record. Introduced in 1949, popular through the 60s and early 70s. Known to be the standard size for vinyl until the release of the 12-inch. The vinyls and sleeves had information about all aspects of the production on the back and front. It was very visual.

The 12" vinyl LP (Long Play) started in 1948 and was known for it's louder sound. The larger groves meant bass and treble levels were higher. Its size also meant that longer versions of music could be played, up to 20 minutes worth of music each side. It has become the standard format for vinyls popular through the 1950s and 60s with Frank Sinatra and 70s through David Bowie.

INFORMATION:
 
ROCK ‘N’ ROLL SUICIDE (2:58)
(Bowie)
 
Time takes a cigarette, puts it in your mouth
You pull on your finger, then another finger, then your cigarette
The wall-to-wall is calling, it lingers, then you forget
Ohh how how how, you're a rock 'n' roll suicide
 
You're too old to lose it, too young to choose it
And the clocks waits so patiently on your song
You walk past a cafe but you don't eat when you've lived too long
Oh, no, no, no, you're a rock 'n' roll suicide
 
Chev brakes are snarling as you stumble across the road
But the day breaks instead so you hurry home
Don't let the sun blast your shadow
Don't let the milk float ride your mind
You're so natural - religiously unkind
 
Oh no love! you're not alone
You're watching yourself but you're too unfair
You got your head all tangled up but if I could only
Make you care
Oh no love! you're not alone
No matter what or who you've been
No matter when or where you've seen
All the knives seem to lacerate your brain
I've had my share, I'll help you with the pain
You're not alone
 
Just turn on with me and you're not alone
Let's turn on with me and you're not alone
Let's turn on and be not alone
Gimme your hands cause you're wonderful
Gimme your hands cause you're wonderful
Oh gimme your hands.

The cassette. Simple, small and portable. It is said that people still have nightmares about tangling up the tape and having to wind it back. Popular between the 1970s and 1990's, the cassette as well as the compact disk were common musical devices. Information was compact and small because of the cassette's size but it was still informative.

The compact disk became available from the early 80s. A lot of the information was shown on its case, through paper sheets and booklets. The booklets contained song lyrics, pictures and information on the CD. The CD itself was limited to one side of imagery and text because one had to be digitally readable.

Music moved with the digital age reducing the need for large objects to store music, enter the MP3, the format known to kill off physical music. It's all electronic. These days album artwork only offers minimal text information usually only being the albums title and artist's name. Image has become even more important as a selling point. Unlike previous forms of music, there is now an easier way of obtaining information about an album or artist thanks to the Internet. It's also the way most music is listened to or gathered, either through streaming or downloading. Music is now more portable than ever with MP3 player libraries now holding up to 40,000 songs. Some argue that the art and design of music has been lost over time with the minimalistic impact technology has had. In essence, It comes down to the individual and their personal style.
