My Personal Futuristic Comments on Music Trending Based on My Own Recent Music Video Observations:
Timbre and rhythm along with unique locations appear to be the new emphasis within today's entertaining musical video.
Very unique locations - never seen before with 'live' appearing performances.
Timbre - 'sound' of various instruments create many varied responses to their listeners - especially the young but still must be musically educated in order to find the full enjoyment and depth of what the performers are trying to put forth.
“Deeper” involvement is achieved when one goes beyond the normal 'blindly following hearer' to the 'educated and aware‘ to receive the maximum 'entertainment’ value – which has been the crux of classical music in the past.
Video accessibility is beyond what we ever thought possible!
Spectacular set designs / Electronic & Digital Technology / High Definition / Go-Pro cameras and drones for fantastic views, distant as well as remarkable close-ups of not only the musicians but even the hand positions, etc. on the instruments, never before seen.
The return to the classical influence - the European culture with the others included - globally designed entertainment.
From Middle Ages / Renaissance / Baroque / Classical / Romantic / Modern / Popular / Demonic / Global
However, that classical influence will soon disappear as the young people today have little, if any, understanding and awareness of the classical era as well as the other earlier music historical periods. That world of information will soon become rare as those in the 'musically educated and enriched generation' pass on along with the financial support.
Robots will become the performers - along with animated and digitalized music performance accompaniments.
Music for the sake and sound of music - formerly called 'absolute' music along with the skill of virtuosos and other professional performers in the great orchestras from the world will continue it's death knell.
Music will lose it's human touch - and be digitally perfect, although unrealistic - thus killing any personal desire to learn and eventually excel in any form of personal skill in musical performance ability.
Skilled / Virtuoso performers along with the common average musician will disappear as the digital and robot era will be a lot 'easier' than to do the 'practice' that it requires.
As the world continues with the 'going global trend with it's accompanying 'agenda', the European/American music culture influence will also go by the wayside while the 'oriental New Age' will spawn a new 'spiritual' music. The African element of rhythm will continue, however, to draw the most interest, as blindly as it will be followed by the masses - by the sheer 'funness' of the feeling the global music will give them.
