Question1: Recording Music
Howcan we relate the article to our discussions and the UOP video?
Itis no doubt that technological innovations in the modern world havechanged recording of music a great deal. It is possible to recordmusic in a studio using a computer without necessarily having to takeall the composers to the studio. In other words, the composers can dotheir parts from different stations and then using the technologyavailable, their solo recordings can be put together. It is alsopossible to create drum beats, percussions and other instruments thatthe composer may not be very familiar with using technology (Nielsen,2014). Vocals can be recorded and added to make music and thuscreating a complete piece that pleases the composer/s. innovations inthe technology have therefore played a great role in making musicrecording much more easier and cheaper as compared to the past. Theavailable technology have also made it possible for the artists tohave a platform that offers numerous options from which they caninteract among themselves, share ideas and also get feedback fromtheir audience almost immediately from wherever they are (Nielsen,2014).
Question2: What Makes Television Public?
Howdoes each of you access television?
Personally,I prefer to watch the public television. This is so because it offersmore time showing what I am interested in, the humanity and theiractivities. Unlike the cable television which is commercial, publictelevision gives more time in celebrating the arts, culture, localpolitics and the things that are of particular interest to thepeople.
Issubscribing to cable considered public? Why or why not?
Subscribingto cable is not considered public. This is so because once yousubscribe to cable television it means that you will have to pay acertain amount for you to be able to watch the programs. This istotally different from the public television whereby one is notrequired to pay anything to be able to enjoy watching the programs(Campbell, 2011).
Whatother choices do people have?
Today,people can watch public television, subscribe on cable television orwatch television online.
Specificallyhow can television be public or purchased?
Whereno one buys programming on television, this is considered to bepublic television. Public television therefore serves the interestsof the people. It is therefore totally noncommercial. On the otherhand, commercialization of the television means that the public haveto pay some subscription fee for them to watch the programs. In thiscase therefore, the main difference between a public television and apay television is the fact that the latter is commercialized whilethe other one is not (Campbell, 2011).
Question3: Television and twitter
Whatis second screen activity?
Secondscreen activity can be defined as the use of a computing device suchas smart phones or tablets that are more portable to enhance viewingof contents from another device such as television. In many cases,the activity takes place simultaneously as the content runs in themain device such as the television (Jhooker, 2014). By the use of thecomputing devices such as the smart phones or the tablets, theviewers are able to interact within a special application available,and offer their views or comments on the content such as a televisionprogram. Second screen activity is therefore mainly meant to increasethe audience engagement.
Howdoes second screen activity relate to our discussions?
Itrelates to the discussions in that it is a clear evidence of howinnovations in technology have made it easy for the audience to getmore involved in the contents they watch on the television or listento the radio (Bettis, 2014).
Whatis the future? Will there be a third screen activity? Why or why not?
Thefuture is promising with the increase in new innovations there arehigh chances that there will be a third screen activity. In caseswhere for example advertising agencies or marketers use theactivities already accomplished in the second screen, this can becalled a third screen activity. Apps that allow such activity cantherefore be developed (Jhooker, 2014).
TheInternet has created numerous ways for the public to obtain musicwithout paying for it. The Internet also provides numerous ways forartists to promote tours, new music, and memorabilia. Do you thinkthe Internet has created more harm than good to artists in the musicindustry? Explain your answer.
Ithink the internet has created better to the artists than harm. Thisis so because, through the internet, the artists have a platform tosell their music to more audience than before. They are able toreceive immediate response from their fans and more importantly, theyare able to advertise their music and interact with their fans(Bettis, 2014).
Question5: Future Radio
Whatis the future of radio?
Ithink radio does not have to worry so much about its future. Evenwith numerous changes in the technologies, radio is one thing that isgoing to be around for as long as the human beings are around. Thisis so because radio is much like an outfit that we all wear and areaware of wherever we go. Radio should be viewed as a medium ofinteracting with each other. It is one person talking to another(Jacobson, 2013).
Whatcharacteristics does each of you want and predict?
Iwould like the radio to offer a platform whereby an individual canchoose to be on air as long as they wish discussing matters ofinterest to interested parties. In this case, one can discuss mattersof interest to a particular group by just turning on a particularchannel that should be free and available for anyone to broadcast.
Whatlegal concerns must be considered?
Regulationsshould insist on discipline. The contents should not violate themoral standards of the society and at the same time they shouldprotect the rights of everyone just like we expect to happen wheninteracting face to face (Jacobson, 2013).
