In general Stradivarius violins-A stringed instrument have a reputation of producing a heavenly sound when the string is played(This particular Instrument was designed and built by Antonio Stradivari).For Ages,connoisseurs have been having a discussion on the secret of Stradivarius violin’s heavenly sound.Now,a new exploration claims to have solved the Mystery and has found out the answer->The answer was very surprising to me when i heard why the Stradivarius sounds good!!! It was revealed that the Superior and heavenly sound the Stradivarius Violin’s attains is because of the density of the two wooden panels used to make its body->See how a perfect design using a Perfect log can totally change the complexion of music..The Musical Instruments from the 17th and 18th centuries has a consistent density throughout the violin,allowing them to produce notes of Distinctive Richness and Power..But when you compare today’s Modern violin you can see that the density vacillates and it is not Constant..Because of this only The Stradivarius Attains that Pleasing sound—It was going well (this particular violin Stuff)when i scouted through The daily..Hope you will also find it Interesting…

The sales of the Music Cd’s and Dvd’s in all the main Shops fell tot hier lowest in the last ten years…The sources and the Music Reuters say that there was a Sudden Slump in the sales of the Music related Compact Discs and the DVD’s and the datum collected by the International Federation of Phonographic Industry with them shows that the Music sales dropped by 8% which resulted in a 1-1.5 Billion USD Loss for this Industry…What is the reason Behind this???It is nothing but the Growth of Broadband with Greater Bandwidths being supplied to each and every home Using hits High Bandwidth people used to Upload rare Songs and Very Costly Music Albums..So as the first Step of Tackling Online Music Piracy the International Organization for Music is going to enforce some Strict Weblog Barrier in their Websites and in their Portal….And reports say 30 billion illegal downloads was there in 2007,Digital Piracy accounted for 70% of this 30 Billion..Wal-Mart reported some 20% Slump in the Music Cd’s Sales in a Documented report Submitted by it…
So what will be the State of Music after Ten years..And what will Musicians and Singers do????Only GOD Knows
