Prior to the invention of the MP3 compressed audio format, the vast majority of music was either enjoyed live or distributed in various physical formats (described in detail in Chapters 7 and 8). As the Internet gained popularity throughout the 1990s, new digital formats and networking capabilities caused earthshaking changes in music distribution. Technology such as peer-topeer networking and content streaming now enable us to share, perform, and enjoy music from all kinds of sources anywhere in the world. In fact, it has never been easier or more common to transport our music wherever we go. In this chapter, we explore how technology has made music global in the physical sense.
