HyperMusic (ThoughtStorms)

Should be read with NetworksAndMusicalEcology

Music becoming increasingly, and increasingly obviously a HyperText.

Of course, the development of music was always a history of intertwingled, reciprocal influences.

But two technologies made a difference.

With explicit addressable nodes, and a mechanism for making links, music became a blatant hyper-media.


Maybe other addressable things and links made other networks. For example, a famous musician with a recognisable sound / contribution could play on different recordings. The musician is an addressable thing. The appearance on different recordings, or membership of different bands, makes the links.
