There is a channel called Vintage TV, vintage.tv/ and vintagetv.ca/ that showcases talent, young and old, established and up and coming, and I would highly recommend getting this channel if you can. The talent, both famous, and unknown, that appears on that channel is simply amazing. There is good music being made today, but unfortunately, these artists are probably unsigned, or ply their trade on small indie labels for the most part, and tour in venues that aren't that big, and are probably more intimate club settings than concert halls, arenas or stadiums.

if the audience is retarded there is no point spending time creating masterpieces for them cuz due to their lack of intelligence they wont understand shit anyway so better put a few words in a blender and have them loop for 3-4 minutes...they wont understand shit cuz they cant so they will like it and will pay for it while you just put the least effort.

This was a lot more interesting than I'd expected. Have long thought that musical variety was actually increasing overall as entire new musical genres keep appearing but that overall the songs getting radio play and popular music have been homogenising. That has long seemed peculiar to me and I wasn't sure how much to trust that impression. This puts some statistics to some of it. Most interesting, thanks uploader!

Funny. He states that finding good music today is harder than it ever has been. Even tho the FUCKING INTERNET EXISTS. And accessibility to making music is higher than ever before. There are more good artists today than there ever has been, but all he focuses on is justin bieber and katy perry. I can just go to youtube and find thousands of smaller artists who are making amazing music, and never have to listen to beiber. How is that harder than literally having to buy the music from a store? Generalization is stupid. This video is over exaggerating stuff in order to state "My generation of music is better."

I don't agree with the sentiment of 'we shouldn't have to have repeated exposure to a song to like it'. Not all music hits you in the way it's supposed to right away. The first time I heard the album Laturalus by Tool I thought it was okay. After many, many listens I began to really enjoy it. It's now my favourite album of all time.

"Once upon a time you had to buy each album or song individually and play it until you appreciated it." Once upon a time you got so invested in time and money that the song that took you years to tolerate became worth too much in terms of what you had invested to just abandon it. I'm not saying Bieber is a musical genius, but old music is generally bad, there are exceptions. Voices that both can't sing and aren't autotuned aren't any better than those who can't sing and are autotuned. Good artists, back then and now, are rarer than the stuff that sells.

I'm a teenager, and I used to listen to Taylor Swift and Katy Perry a lot. I stopped a few years ago. I found classic rock music had more interesting beats, every song was different and so I could tell what song was playing. Trying to listen to pop music now is a painful experience for me because it all sounds the same. Now I prefer older music and find instrumental song covers more attractive than the actual song and pop lyrics. Listening to the older music really opened my eyes. Music used to have emotion and meaning. And could set the mood for the day or change how you feel. Most music now is meaningless, emotionless, and powerless. It all blends together now. Originality is dead in the music of today. I don't think ALL modern music is bad, but I have a hard time finding good music.

One of my degrees is in experimental psychology. It dovetails nicely with the way you presented this very true and interesting "class" on how modern music is produced. After retiring, I owned a recording studio (and a graphics/media company) which proceeded to close the loop of your presentation. You hit the nail on the head... and quite nicely, I must say!

What kind of bullshit study are you citing and why are you cherry picking the "bad" commercial artists? This is either very bad science, or you are making up the paper you cite. You have a lot of great things happening in modern jazz, a type of modern music, with the likes of Vijay Iyer, Gilad Hekselman, John Zorn, Nubya Garcia, just to name a few. You compare an orchestra to a sampler, keyboard, drum machine and computer... Do you seriously believe you can achieve half the timbral diversity with an orchestra as you can with the last few? You make so many fallacies. This video is borderline ignorant and if you took some time to think about how every generation always criticises their youth's musical taste, you would find a pattern. Modern music is not awful
I completely disagree, computer software and computer generated sounds have made songs more diverse than ever. All it takes is 10 minutes on DE-vid to see this. I'm not defending modern day pop, not by any means. I personally don't like modern pop. But to say that computer generated sound and computer software "homogenizes" sound now days is completely ridiculous.

While I agree with many of the details of your video, I have to disagree with the final thesis. Music is not dying. Technology has enabled so many more artists to get their unique and talented music out to people. While the masses will not hear it, many people who search will find it. I think that is reason enough to conclude that music isn't dying, but pop music is being squeezed like a sponge for money.
So all we need to do is kill Max Martin & Lukasz Gottwald, hang their bodies in public as a warning to others & problem solved.

First you talk about people listening to music on albums mid 20th Century appreciating subtleties due to repeated listening as enhancing the music's value. You also go on about the importance of picking up musical subtleties that are wiped due to over-compression. Following this line of thought you then say it's "brainwash" to begin to like a song more over time after repeated listenings and "If a song is good, shouldn't you like it the first time." You idiotically contradict yourself. Most music fans appreciate a song "growing on them" such as I can guess _deeper album tracks_ of the Rock artist formats. You can't have it both ways, punk. One gaping hole in your argument is the evolution of what role music plays in the lives of contemporary people. This would include evolution through the generations that have led to now. You'd have to get into religion, technology, consumerism and the ways basic communication has progressed. This is all clearly out of your league when you can't even sort out a consistent case for the merits of appreciating music after multiple listens. IF YOU CAN'T APPRECIATE BEETHOVEN AND TAKASHI 6IX9INE THEN I FEEL SORRY FOR YOU GO FUCK YOURSELF

Two things that you forgot to mention. AUTOTUNE and who controls the industry today. Going back to the 60's/70's how many different, independent, record labels were there compared with how many corporations control the record labels today? As with a lot of things over the last 20 or more years the immediate bottom line has become the goal. No room to take a chance and recover costs over a period of time, all costs must be recovered immediately or the "product" is no good and is scrapped. Don't forget that 4he Beatles were originally turned down by Decca. If something sim8lar happened today they would never be heard from again because the next label they approached would probably belong to the same parent corporation and if the first corporation don't want them want is the chance of another of the corporations taking a risk?

I mostly agree with you but bands like Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds are still brilliant and have brilliant lyrics. My example being The Bad Seeds album Murder Ballads from 1996, after 1990 when most agree music went downhill. Every song is great and have great lyrics. The weakest song is Crow Jane but still that still has great writing. There are no songs these days with as good writing such as Like a rolling stone, The mercy seat, Fortunate son or The man comes around.
