Technology is great, it's allowed us to move production from the untouchable skyscrapers, to student bedrooms and the quality of sounds from physical instruments, to emotive sounds, that past generations couldn't have imagined.
Even with these advances I'm still seeing a great demand for live music. In my opinion, nothing beats that organic performance component. Guys like Jay Z use live music at it's best, in the realm of pop culture. This live element can quite easily be just the cream on top of a DJ's set in a nightclub. Yes I'm talking about me playing sax in nightclubs.
Shameless plug of my services....... haha!
