MUSIC EVOLUTION Introduction VINYL A vinyl record is a flat disc with an inscribed, modulated spiral groove. The groove usually starts near the periphery and ends near the center of the disc. Vinyl records are described by their diameter, the rotational speed at which they are played, their time capacity, quality, etc...

Vinyl records were the primary use for music reproduction in the 20th century. They continue to be manufactured and sold in the 21st century. In 2009, 3.5 million units were shipped in the United States, the most in any year since 1998 and the format has continued to slowly regain popularity. They are especially used by DJs for many types of music and as of 2013, vinyl records continue to be used. VINYL 50's 70's CASSETTE WALKMAN 60's CD's 80's MP3 90's IPOD 2000's CASSETTE The cassette is a tape recording format for audio recording and playback. Cassettes come in two forms, either already containing content as a pre-recorded cassette, or as fully recordable "blank" cassette. Between the early 1970s and the late 1990s, the cassette was one of the two most common formats for music, along side, the CD.

Two stereo pairs of tracks available on the tape; one stereo pair is played when the tape is moving in one direction and the second pair when moving in the other direction. WALKMAN Walkman is a Sony brand trade name used for portable audio cassette players, and now for Sony Ericsson mobile phones. The original Walkman introduced a change in music listening habits by allowing people to carry music with them and listen to music through lightweight headphones.

The prototype was built in 1978 by a Japanese man who wanted to be listen to operas during his frequent plane trips but original Walkman was marketed in 1979. Advertising, despite all the foreign languages, still attracted thousands of buyers in the US. CD's The CD, is an optical disc used to store data, and was developed play back sound recordings. Audio CDs and audio CD players have been commercially available since October 1982. Standard CDs have a diameter of 120 mm and can hold up to 80 minutes of audio.

In 2004, worldwide sales of CD's reached about 30 billion. and 200 billion by 2007. CD's are increasingly being replaced by other forms of digital storage, such as downloading and flash drives. MP3 The MP3 is a portable device that allows you to store and play music files in MP3 format. MP3 players are small devices, that connect to your computer, and there, you can transfer music to the MP3. IPOD The IPod was created by Apple and is similar to the MP3, but not only can you listen to music, you can also watch videos, take pictures, play games, and have access to the internet. FUN FACTS The most viewed music, according to Youtube, is Gangnam Style, with over 1.6 billion views. "The Lost Chord" is the very first music recording, recorded in 1888. CONCLUSION With this project, I was able to learn how music evolved from vinyl to the IPod, and how simple music players were, compared to nowadays.
