I am particularly interested in the discussion of the way in which streaming services strip out context. This leads to different artists being combined as if they are the same.
In regards to the CD renaissance, I wonder about disc rot and the impact that this will have?
Disc rot is the tendency of CD or DVD or other optical discs to become unreadable because of physical or chemical deterioration. The causes include oxidation of the reflective layer, physical scuffing and abrasion of disc, reactions with contaminants, ultra-violet light damage, and de-bonding of the adhesive used to adhere the layers of the disc together.
