Digital platforms have changed the way artists sell their music and film. Through platforms like Youtube, Netflix, etc., you can listen to and watch any music or videos. Does it mean there is no one buying CDs or DVDs? Let’s explore the music industry.
BBC business the report, Mr. Robert interviewed famous artists from Berkshire. Mr. Paul said music had been the greatest healer of his life. Vinyl albums and CDs have played a major role in his life since he was a small kid.
He likes having the physical DVDs and CDS because they are always accessible whenever he needs them. The 35-year-old Bracknellian has over CD albums from the UK and the rest from Portland. He lived in the US for five years since 2015 but moved back to his homeland after the pandemic strikes. At the same time, he had a divorce from his American woman.
Despite moving from the US, he believes his ex-wife still takes care of all the records he had. Paul said he was shocked by the BBC news about Sainburrys deciding not to sell DVDs and CDs. However, he wasn’t happy with the news because he has been a great customer of this vinyl.
Digital streaming has to play a major role in replacing CDs and DVDs. But we should realize it’s not for everyone. People like Paul cherish those physical metals. And even now, people are still purchasing them from various vendors. Paul imagines how a person can have a better life without media in their hand. We have some videos and music that hits, and then after a short period, they are removed from streams. That is the real mistake that he hates. TV shows are sometimes shown once, and they disappear.
Most people who sell CDS and DVDs specialize in making single albums. Kayle is in love with those media, but he prefers single artists. IN many years, he has spent a lot of time listening to a Japanese rock artist called D. Kathryn Kyle still buy D’s records. The CD market closed. She now buys from websites and the online market, a report by cnbc.
She talks to BBC business writer about the reaction from his family. They look at her as an old-fashioned lady. But that does not affect her; she loves looking at these disks. She loved reading the pamphlets and leaflets.
The disc is very reliable as compared to digital media. Kayle thinks something can go wrong with digital media hence losing all the content. CDs act as a good backup. She is working at building society, and she secured the chance through listening to Japanese video games. Kayle has built a house recently, not forgetting to set a perfect shelf for his DVDs.
Leslie Sopp is a retired researcher who has almost 850CDs on his shelf. He is old enough to get his DVDs, but he still adds more. Sopp said his son works in the music industry. At times he would borrow some disks to use them in his career. The CD allows them to downsize the volume as he adds more albums. He shares his love for lyric sheets that come along with the CDs.
Sopp likes electronica and jazz music. Most of his albums comprise artists like ECM Label and Keith Jarret. He sometimes takes a few minutes to listen to music through digital platforms. Then, after listening to new music on Spotify, he will go to the market to purchase a physical CD. But the problem comes with storage. Lesslie has a plastic bag with furniture where he dumps his albums.
A 69-year-old Hampshire resident, Tony Neal, said he was very passionate about vinyl. He values the disk with much respect. Tony said he once built a top-end system only to play some records. But the digital market has spoiled that freedom, a report by forbes.
For years, he has been in the digital industry, and he has shifted his mind to online streaming. Alongside his table, he has a Bluetooth speaker to listen to Spotify music. He has been in the in-production industry. So, he knows the taste of music. One year has ended without him visiting the CD shop. It shows a change in the way we get music.
For sure, digital media has overtaken physical vinyl. From the report, we can say the younger generation listens to music differently from older adults. Youth prefers online streaming, which is much faster and requires only electronic gadgets. At the same time, older people prefer CDs, because they have valued them since then.
