Commodification has been an inherent aspect of music for many centuries. The aggregation of the diverse commodification practices could be described as an "industry," but this is an industry that has always been in a state of transition. New technologies, media formats, and practices appear regularly, requiring swift responses by the incumbent music industry. This essay will explore aspects of the technological context in which contemporary musicians have been thrown, describe practices that are already happening on the ground, and perhaps anticipate a little what may come our way in terms of near-future practices of musicians, distributors, and listeners.
