“I would hope that if someone only got into music because of bands who were influenced by us, that they would do what I did when I was younger, which is kind of work backwards—look at the bands they were influenced by, and then just keep going back and back … basically go back until you’re listening to the Beatles, and then realize that they were influenced by Little Richard, and then all of a sudden you’re listening to nothing but Django Reinhardt.”
— Matthew Pryor from The Get Up Kids in an interview with PopMatters
I’m starting to think that in the future, we may never need to install anything. All programs will simply be available online. From anywhere.
Behold Myna (http://aviary.com/tools/myna#), an online, multitrack audio recording program. It seems like a pretty decent little tool, and the ridiculous dance song that loads as the demo is a lot of fun. Now I don’t think the future of production lies in flash-based tools, but its an interesting step toward “cloud computing” nonetheless.
