Music is one of the best known art forms in the world today.
It is also one of the oldest art forms. Music is reported to have existed even in the prehistoric period. Music can really express feelings that words cannot.
When you listen to music, it's not just your ears that are affected. The right music can affect every part of your body. People have used music as part of hypnosis techniques. People even use music during meditation.
Music is something that transcends barriers. Barriers include country, religion, caste, etc. Each country has its own native style of music that anyone in the world can listen to and enjoy as it doesn't require any language. The music is generally divided into genres such as Western classical, rock, jazz, pop, carnatic, Hindustani, etc.
The musicians created fusion pieces which are combinations of different musical genres. The music gave birth to legends such as Mozart and Beethoven who specialized in Western classical music. Mozart and Beethoven belonged to the 18th and 19th centuries respectively. But, people still listen to their musical creations today.
However, such legendary musicians have become immortal through music. Each country has its own musical legend. America has its own roster of legendary musicians such as Jimi Hendrix, Hank Williams, Hans Zimmer and so on. Ennio Morricone is a great Italian film composer.
India is a country known for its rich musical culture. A.R. Rahman is an Indian film music composer who is revered everywhere for his timeless compositions. Rock is a genre of music that has generated millions of followers around the world. Rock bands like Pink Floyd are known for their exploits in the rock genre. All of these musicians have created music albums that have generated record sales around the world.
However, there is a problem called piracy that has been plaguing the music industry for the last ten years. The reason for piracy in the music industry can be attributed to the enormous development and popularity of the Internet.
Even world-class contemporary musicians like A.R. Rahman and Hans Zimmer find it difficult to sell their soundtracks due to piracy. People don't realize how difficult it is for music companies and individual musicians to illegally download music from the Internet.
Some people simply copy the work of other musicians and use it for their own movies or music albums. It is not only unethical, but also illegal.
