The Future of Music: Thoughts by Jim Morrison
In a 1969 interview with Doors frontman Jim Morrison, one of the best musicians to ever live, was speculating about the future of music. His predictions were correct…
The new generation’s music … will have a synthesis of those two elements and some third thing. It might rely heavily on electronics, tapes. I can kind of envision, maybe, one person with a lot of machines: tapes, electronic setups, singing or speaking, using machines.
Morrison’s words are almost a perfect description of the technological enhancements in music: Skrillex, deadmau5, The Knife, and many more.
