The Future of Music Streaming
Musica universalis, or, the Harmony of the Spheres was an ancient philosophical concept that conceived  of celestial bodies in motion as a kind of music. We have our own versions of this Musica universalis or “Universal Music”—in the form of on-demand streaming clearing-houses like Spotify, Pandora, and  Beats. Marcus Smith and Professor  Eric Harvey discuss the consequences and effects that on-demand music streaming has on listener and industry alike.—Original airdate: 5/12/2014
