Kiyanu Kim | How emerging technology changing the music industry

  1. 1. How emerging technology changing the music industry Kiyanu Kim Kiyanu Kim
  2. 2. Kiyanu Kim Kiyanu Kim- Introduction Kiyanu Kim is an award-Winning Songwriter and Producer at Sony/ATV. He is a driven music creator. Kiyanu Kim is building a name for himself as a writer, collaborator and musician, and gradually accruing a reputation for relaxed collaboration and a style of playing that is distinctive, but that lends itself to a variety of musical genres.
  3. 3. Kiyanu Kim Changes in music industry over years. A lot has changed in the music industry over the last couple of decades. Radio used to be the most common way for people to listen to music and discover new artists. Today, with the incredible rise of digital distribution services and streaming technology, radio has been made almost obsolete and the biggest stations are now struggling to attract audience and generate profit. People do still listen to radio, just not as much or in the same way they did before. CDs, also formerly a very popular way to experience music, are slowly starting to lose ground as they are increasingly being replaced by downloads and digital streaming.
  4. 4. Kiyanu Kim Multitrack Recording Multitrack recording may be totally taken for granted these days, but when it first became available in the mid-’50s it was the musical equivalent of humanity’s first dabblings in aeronautics. Whereas previously musicians and sound engineers had to record a track as a whole – in just ONE take – multitrack enabled them to record separate parts of a song and then piece them together. It also allowed for individual tweaks to be made in specific sections of a song, while adding many layers to a single instrument (i.e. vocal harmonies by the same singer, recorded separately and layered together). And just like that, the recording industry was never the same again.
  5. 5. Kiyanu Kim Auto-Tune No-one is TOTALLY perfect, and our favourite artists are no different. Occasionally during vocal recordings, Kiyanu Kim is the common for the odd note to be slightly off-pitch. Just here-and-there, of course, and rarely anything major, but it happens. The invention of Auto-Tune, though, allowed pitch-faulty notes to be instantly and discreetly tweaked to the nearest semitone, making for pitch-perfect vocal performances every time. Though usually used subtly, some artists have used Auto-Tune to exaggerate their vocals, creating a new and original sound. Kanye West has been at the forefront of this movement, along with artists like T- Pain.
  6. 6. Kiyanu Kim Digital software Arguably the biggest game-changer has been the introduction of digital software into music production; allowing musicians of all abilities to write, record and produce their own songs to a reasonable quality – often from their bedrooms. Programmes such as Logic and Protools offer a range of exciting effects, plugins and tools to help improve the sonic quality of music. Apple computers also come with their own built-in software – Garageband – which, although simple, is essentially the first step towards a home studio.
  7. 7. Kiyanu Kim Future Innovations of the music industry Social networks and virtual reality will become new music distribution channels, offering people even more ways to access music. The Internet of Things could soon make its way into the music industry and add another layer to overall user experience. Current copyright laws will also have to change to keep up with constantly evolving user trends and we will probably come up with new revenue streams for artists to earn from their music.
  8. 8. Kiyanu Kim Future Innovations of the music industry People today are spoiled for choice in terms of how they want to listen to music. In addition to radio, CDs and of course live events, they can choose to obtain music through digital distribution or streaming services. Technologies come and go, and it will be very interesting to see what else the future of the music industry will bring us.
