I made this as part one of a two tape retrospective on the 1900s and popular music. I wanted to show the evolution and cross polination of various strands of music throughout the centruy. Jazz is born, the blues help create rock, classical music splits into many pieces, etc. To break it up and ground it in each decade, I interspersed soundbites about the wars, the use of recording equipment or trends of the eras. This took a lot of research and scouring libraries and my own collection to find enough music of each decade and to represent all the styles I wanted to. It really is incredible to see all the different kinds of music and the evolution of it all over a short span of 100 years.
