What will music sound like in 2020?
Anyone care to guess or know what POP music will soundlike after the year 2020? (in round 10 years from now?). If you had a time machine and travelled to the year 2020, what would you hear?
EDIT: can someone help me type fill in the blanks. thanks.
in the 30's we had _______ music
in the 40's we had _______ music
in the 50's we had ________ music
in the 60's we had ________ music (was boring previously)
in the 70's we had ________ music (was boring previously)
in the 80's we had disco, rock ballads and basically rock reigned supreme.
in the 90's we had the start of Hip Hop and early days of doof doof E. dance.
in the 00's we had the loudness wars and everything went pop/rnb/hip hop.
in the 10's we're seing a merging of POP/RnB artist singing to EDM tracks.
and in the 2020's what will be popular?
Do you reckon with increaseing noise and hectic lifestyles, pop music will turn to softer more peaceful genres like acoustic and classical/orchestral music like back in Mozart days?
or are we going to see music stay in the David Guetta style doof doof house/EDM genre but with a faster tempo?
Pop radio hits goes from around 108 to around 120 bpm currently - but in 2020 will we c a bpm of 127-140bpm as a standard. I notice that POP music is gradually becoming faster and faster with each progressive decade. So maybe EDM lovers/fans today are forward music thinkers of todays society.
Who knows, but I'm keen to see what the future has install for us.
