And now the Indonesian are marginalizing their youth music talent...but off course 'music and arts' are parts of Indonesian strong culture and part of their education subject. (bukan macam kita di Malaisia..terbatas kok!). They are exploring their new talents..
During the late 80's 90's our Malaysian music industry considered to be at its peak compared to our neigbouring countries. It was a 'Rockers Band' era..Search, Wings, Iklim, Black Rose, Gersang, Ella and the boys and so so...Sales was termendeous...100k, 300k, 400k...phew!...Then 10 years later everything 'went' all wrong..what happened?...'the media' and the so call 'people in the industry' keep blaming on the emerging of CD. CD's is walloping the cassettes market?!...and CD's cost more (pricer) than casssette...kunun2 la.
Believe it or not...for the past 30 over years (and still), Malaysia's music mainstream industry are 'running' by the same people who also happen to be the producer, the composer, the marketeers..and almost all tasks done by the 'same people for all people'....in this case I call it the "same ideas" from the same person been implemented to all his/her productions for sooooo long....there are 'good and bad' thing about this.
The good thing is, the person's EXPERIENCES...no doubt about it...contibutes to the album success.
Then, came the new era of computer recording technology.....and the technology is getting better everyday!...introducing costs reducing method of recording to those 'home studio' producing world.
