Quote

Never has the world of music been so open to exploration, nor so rich in paradox. Recording is abolishing history - the music of the past is being subsumed into a voracious and ever-expanding musical present. The shrinking of the globe to a digital village is abolishing geography: everyone can listen to everyone else's music, wherever they happen to be. But in a piquant irony, just as the short-lived "world music" CD boom was whetting people's appetite for new sounds, so those sounds were becoming homogenized out of existence, in response to the demands of the global pop market.
