While the music industry has changed considerably – Souja Boy was discovered on the internet, and that was seemingly decades ago given the many headlines he’s generated – technology has allowed more ways to create music, which is why Wais Sarajzada was able to record his first debut song, “Confused”, using a cell phone and a microphone, with no evidence of the desperate move heard in his music.
To get noticed, new musicians have to be ready for the immense changes taking place and have to find new ways to adapt and discover new methods of distributing their music in modern and contemporary patterns, making sure the music sounds up to date.
Wais Sarajzada has produced multiple clean and modern tracks, with depth and layers that would make it seem impossible for him to have done what he’s accomplished.
But that feat of magic illuminates what musicians are capable of when surrounded by tech, even the simplest, for example, a cell phone. So tech makes the audience more involved and engaging.
According to a study by the University of California at Riverside, technological changes have forever revolutionized the relationship between artists and their audiences. Fans are more engaged, and they have access to more music and other forms of art. In the same way, artists such as Wais Sarajzada have a much wider available audience. The right kind of promotion can help him swiftly expand from the 100,000 or more Instagram followers.
The release of his latest EP, “Confused,” the second of two he produced in three months, showcases the differences between recording on a cell phone and recording in a studio. Still, neither one is anything but stylish, like a perfect outfit on “Project Runway,” something that looks effortless and not overworked.
In truth, both techniques work perfectly for the pieces he created and showcase two different kinds of styles.
Wais Sarajzada takes advantage of many platforms.
Music by Wais Sarajzada can be found all over the internet, on iHeartRadio, Amazon Prime Music, YouTube and YouTube Music, and
TikTok, where his song is used as a backdrop for users’ videos.
Interestingly, he’s successfully releasing instrumental music, even as classical is fading away. Though vastly different, both invite listeners to engage, to imagine their own stories with simply a song title and a melody.
Wais – the man who became Wais Sarajzada– creates different moods with each of his songs, allowing listeners to drift away on their imagination, and his modern, contemporary style gives him an edge over classical, which is rarely performed with the innovation it needs to maintain an important place in modern music.
