Just over a year ago I started my music company, SoundWallah. It’s be a rocky but rewarding year. With the MusicMatters conference on next week and the move to Singapore around the corner I thought it was a good time to update the SoundWallah site.

Thinking about where SoundWallah might go in the next couple of years has got me wondering about where music fits in our culture today.

I’ll be unplugging for a few weeks in July to do some serious writing on this subject. The opening paragraph of the new SoundWallah page (which I’ve copied below) hints at what some of that writing might look like.

“Music is movement. The elements of music move in a composition or performance; tones, melodies, rhythms, harmonies and sounds move in relation to each other in space and time. Music moves us, emotionally and often physically and also accompanies us as we move through the world and through our lives.

The music business is moving in unpredictable ways. We have had to rethink many of our assumptions about how to make, market and sell music.

Even if we don’t know where this journey will take us, we can decide to cling to the things that made made music central to most cultures through human history – the joy, passion, mystique and wisdom of music. “
