Digital Technologies

Explore the impact of digital technologies on your selected industry.

Digital technologies such as the internet, or music specific websites such as Spotify and SoundCloud give the ability for new generations to listen to past music, such as Nirvana and Radiohead.

Nirvana's 'Nevermind' album was released in 1991 before the internet was published, therefore proved difficult to access music. Therefore, digital technologies such as YouTube and Vimeo provide a free service of music to new generations, giving longevity to the album, making it available to everyone. Full albums are now available on YouTube and other websites now, and the YouTube 'Nirvana - Nevermind full album' has accumulated near 8 million hits within under 2 years of it being published onto the website.
