Music Production Facts – Los Angeles
Streaming platforms like Spotify have changed the way we listen to music. Using algorithms, they are able to identify our listening habits and spit out personalised playlists.
The popularity of streaming has also created a multi-billion dollar industry. From 2016 to 2017, music sales increased by 3.9%. In the United States, rock music sales grew by 2.5%. Pop stayed on top for two years before it was dethroned by R&B/Hip-Hop.
Streaming also allows artists to bypass labels and talk directly to their fans through social media. Many are turning to Instagram and Spotify to announce their new releases. A weekly playlist of hip hop music on Spotify has over 11.7 million followers.
Los Angeles is the home of many iconic recording studios, as well as a number of musical genres. It is a cultural mecca. It is also home to many festivals, such as the Coachella festival. There are several returning festivals for the coming season.
Los Angeles is also home to many influential artists. The Red Hot Chili Peppers, Tool, and Tyga are just a few of the many artists with LA roots.
The Grammy Museum is a great place to learn about the history of music and the biggest Grammy winners. In addition, there are several exhibits that provide insight into the recording process.
Another area of growth is the music industry’s use of virtual reality. Sony Music’s Visualise is a great example of how a concert can be made more realistic by the use of a VR headset.
