We are living in a post-genre era. Or at least living in a nearly post-genre era. An era where Daft Punk is making disco albums, and where traditional arrangement and instrumentation are making an appearance alongside typical electronic music. "Alternative rock" has basically no meaning (and hasn’t had it for about 25 years). Trends are becoming less and less identifiable through genre terms and more identifiable through musical and stylistic terms. This is freeing for musicians, and especially results in a renaissance of music production . With use of technology rapidly becoming one of the things differentiating musical styles from one another, we see a coup in the musical world shifting from the traditional rock stars, to the producers and experimenters. Post-genre can rely on a range of variables, but it is liberating for the audience as well as the artist.
