Summary The purpose of this study is to investigate whether or not music is becoming placeless in this age of mass internet communication. Digital media have made it possible for anybody with access to the internet to buy and share music. Additionally, inexpensive audio recording programs have made it increasingly easier for the average person to make high quality music from the comfort of his or her bedroom. In this unprecedented era of musical democratization, nodes of popular music production have changed very little over the past twenty years. The author contends that music production still largely remains in the hands of a few giant corporate conglomerates who have not allowed for the democratization of music production, and therefore, the diffusion of nodes of production.
