Technology and Music in the Early Twentieth Century

Due to the nature of my majors in college—Graphic Design and Music Studies—I tend to not write many papers. However, if I am to write any papers it is most likely for them to be about music. My last paper I added to this blog, “Country Music’s Northern Redemption,” was written as a midterm paper for my music of pop & rock class. The following paper, “Technology and Music in the Early Twentieth Century,” was the final paper for the same class. In the paper I discuss how music and the technology behind its recording changed in relation to one another, sort of like “form follows function.” In some cases, function follows the form when it comes to music technology.

Soon I will be uploading another essay relating to popular music history, so check back soon!
