MUSIC IN THE DIGITAL AGE.

People don’t talk face-to-face so much anymore. They send simplistic text messages. They exchange emails, a medium so cold that it needs little cartoon faces to express emotion.

We stare into various electronic screens… television, computer, cell phone, I-Pod, and whatever else is new. We sit nearly motionless and watch the motions on the screens… actors, athletes, game show contestants, reality show competitors, and computer animated figures that battle intergalactic foes, steal cars, kill cops, and generally duke it out.

When our guys win a TV sports event, we take it as our personal victory, as if we did something special, when all we did was watch. They live. We watch.

More than 40 minutes of every television hour are commercial, injecting fake needs, desires, and disease symptoms directly into our brains. Ask your doctor. The TV’s even talk to us in stores and malls. You can’t turn them off or tune them out. Big Brother.

Traveling between our home screens and the store screens, we stick digital things into our ears to talk to people without actually having to be with them personally, or we carry around 5,000 of our favorite songs to ward off real life. Who has 5,000 favorite songs? Or even 500?

Do these new music lovers know that an mp3 made at the standard bitrate of 128 is much lower in sound quality than a CD, lower in quality than a good vinyl LP on a high-end sound system, and way lower than analog studio wide tape?

Digital music is all numbers. Think of the numbers as a flight of stairs, with a ball of music bouncing down in small hops.
Analog music is more like a ramp, with the music ball rolling smoothly down. Listening to a piece on digital and then on analog, is like looking out a window, and then taking the screen off.

Major labels don’t mail as much hard product to radio stations as they used to. It’s cheaper and faster to put MP3’s up on the internet, and have the radio people download them.

With the public being hooked on plugging stuff into their heads, you’d think that music sales would skyrocket, but just the opposite is happening. CD sales are way down, and nobody’s making much on digital downloads, except the makers of I-Pods. Once a fan downloads a song he can share it around the world for free.

Still the record companies keep selling $.99 digital single downloads, killing their own CD album sales. They’re afraid to be left behind, in case it ever starts to pay off.

Today it seems to be about keeping up with the trends. To some of us it will always be about the music.

From Danny at SongU.com: John Wesley Coutts
9-19-07

Hi everyone,

It is with much sadness that I email you all to let you know that our friend and fellow SongU.com member, John Wesley Coutts passed away on Wednesday morning. His presence will be greatly missed, but his contributions, talent and spirit will leave a lasting footprint.

I hope we can find some peace in knowing that at the time of his passing, thousands of people all around the world were listening to his music and sending positive energy and prayers to him. In John Wesley's honor, we hope the emails to his Yahoo account will continue from around the world from those who have heard his songs and took the time to listen. His family will continue to read those emails and it will give them comfort to know John's songs and talents were heard and enjoyed by others. It will serve as a testament to his legacy. Thank you all for coming together as a community to show your support.

They say faith is a knowledge within the heart, beyond the reach of proof. And so while I do not have proof, I do believe with some sense of certainty that John Wesley is looking down on us now as if to say, "Don't worry. I'll tell God you said hi."

-Danny

The Jokers Wild Band Enters Top 100!

JokersWildBand2.jpg (14782 bytes)The Jokers Wild Band has broken in to the top 100 on the Music Row Country Breakout Chart! "Please Catch Me" is at Number 98.

"Please Catch Me," Jokers Wild's second single from their upcoming From Texas With Love cd, is an up-tempo country tune and was written by co-producer and keyboardist Buck Aaron Thomas and lead guitarist Gary Wayne Zaiontz. "If you are so totally in love with that special somebody that they take your breath away every time they enter the room, then this is your song!" says Buck.
The Jokers Wild Band, a 6-piece country / rock band, based in San Antonio, Texas, was formed in the first quarter of 2002 and has since entertained crowds from South Texas to Northern Montana. In 2006, Jokers Wild was honored to perform for former President George Bush, Sr.

The Jokers Wild Band is scheduled to headline the Admiral Zachary Fisher Birthday Celebration Show at Brook Army Medical Center, Fisher House in Fort Sam Houston, Texas, this Friday, Sept. 21, from 11:00 AM until 4:00 PM.
