This is a post i wanted to blog since time. It has not to be meant as a guide or a reccomendation, it’s just my desire to express how much the music is important for me all the time, while i am working and in my spare time. In some aspects of my work, music makes me concentrate more and helps me to get inspirated and motivated in what i am doing. Normally the best moment for me to listen Music is in the morning after i got up. In the morning Music juices my movitations, my goals and probably makes me thing better.
The world of the Music has changed dramatically in the last few years, from the production to the distribution. It’s unbelievable the quantity of free music can be legally downloadable. Many websites play tracks without interruptions, all the time we get access to Internet we can listen music of our favourite Band or artist. Also the quality has improved a lot, with good speakers we can now play high quality music. What is still missing maybe it s the usage of the music or sound in websites not dedicated to the music scenery. I think in a short time people will realise that a Website can be seen as a movie and so it can have a music background.
I hope you can enjoy now my favorite Web Music applications and some nice websites music layout.
