Live music in your living room

With the live music scene in huge demand – PRS for Music recently announced it had finally succeeded recorded music in gross revenue – and tickets increasingly hard to procure at a reasonable price, as long as the touts are free to dominate – yet again the digital community is keen to cash in on the popularity.  If you missed out on Michael Jackson tickets then in the not-too-distant future people could be able to view his gigs ,along with many others, through live-on-line streaming….

The digital world has infiltrated and re-facilitated recorded music beyond recognition, now they want to get in on the live act.   Awdio – a digital live music broadcaster is starting to court the attention of Live Nation, with the clout of such an influential live promoter the new streaming system could become a serious feature in the years to come.  Of course this time the industry will be opening their arms to such a venture, as it doesn’t directly threaten live revenue like downloads did for recorded music.   Although nothing in the digital world could replace the visceral experience of the gig……or could it!!!

Already virtual reality games, like Second Life,  reconstruct real-life communities through social interaction and cultural experiences – this virtual world could be transformed to a live music experience, played through a home theatre system to capture the visual and audio essence of a real gig.  All you need is a sensory device to reproduce the smells and you could be transported to any venue you wish – minus overpriced lager and sweaty crowd – nothing you’d miss then!
