Dr. Bowen makes a great point about the link between Beethoven and Bill Gates’s business tactics. Comparing sheet music to software is strangely accurate. I am hesitant to agree with the fact that Beethoven and Gates had the same business motives, as I see it more as a coincidence. In the end, an artist is an artist because they are talented in a certain field, but they also are passionate about creating. Beethoven’s composing career may have come about due to his loss of hearing. Without the ability to hear what he was playing, it would have been very difficult to perform in front of an audience. By composing and selling sheet music, he would not have to worry about how it sounded while he played. This would still allow him to receive an income without the added stress of performing. Bill Gates, on the other hand, created and invented, much like Beethoven, but he never had the option to “perform” his works. Dr. Bowen clearly identified how this revolutionized the separation between composers and performers. To this day, there are people who write music for the performer. This concept has allowed the music industry to grow, as certain pressures are placed on different people. Unfortunately, these days, the composer is often forgotten about. More and more, composers are coming out as performers, such as Megan Trainor, which is refreshing. I tend to appreciate music more, knowing the performer actually wrote it themselves.
