The Evolution of Music and the Digital Era: A Personal Journey

As we stand at the crossroads of technological innovation and creative expression, I find myself reflecting on my journey in the music industry—a journey that began in the late ’90s, a pivotal era that marked the beginning of a digital music revolution. It was a time when mp3.com emerged as a groundbreaking platform, offering independent artists, including myself under the pseudonym Vanethian, a chance to distribute our music and earn royalties.

This opportunity propelled me into the global top 100 for New Age music, and in 2000, I was featured in the prestigious “Flashback 2000 – The Digital Music Revolution” compilation by mp3.com. This period was transformative, defining the possibilities for indie artists to self-determine and thrive independently.

The mp3.com era was a testament to the power of digital platforms in democratizing music distribution, allowing many artists, myself included, to invest in our studios and professionalize our craft. However, as mp3.com’s chapter closed due to legal challenges and its subsequent absorption by major labels, my focus shifted towards the realm of soundtracks. Initially, I ventured into video game music Game Audio: The Underrated Role of Audio in Video Games - When it comes to video game development, visuals often steal

Comedy Composing – Performer Or Writer

comedy composingPeople often find it intriguing that a performer thrives on being in the spotlight, delivering lines on stage, while a writer prefers to remain behind the scenes, allowing someone else to recite their words. So, which role would you rather assume when comedy composing?

A performer should be an extroverted individual who genuinely enjoys making people laugh. Some individuals have this talent naturally, often finding themselves surrounded by friends as they eagerly share jokes and bring laughter to those around them. However, if you don’t possess this characteristic, don’t despair. Surprisingly, many introverted individuals excel on stage, discovering that a distinct aspect of their personality emerges and takes control in ways they never feel comfortable doing in everyday life.

A humor writer in comedy composing, on the other hand, would abhor the idea of being the center of attention on stage. Such a scenario would be their worst nightmare. They prefer to write when inspiration strikes, rather than being restricted to a specific time slot for their performance. Although they may or may not enjoy sharing jokes with friends, they undoubtedly love writing them. They find humor in every situation, even when their cat vomits on their new clothes during …
