It all began with the creation of sheet music; once music took a physical form, it was desired by rich aristocrats who paid for it in full. Then came the phonograph, a device invented by Thomas Edison that used phonographic disks to play recorded audio out loud. It was originally intended for the use of business documentation, but when that failed, music became the new idea. In fact, it was such a good idea that Emile Berliner invented the disc record or "gramophone". Although Edison thought of creating a disc phonograph, Berliner was the one who really got the ball rolling.

    years to come. Lisa Gitelman describes the phonograph as a “Jekyll-and-Hyde” type of device (Gitelman). Thomas Edison created the phonograph with entirely different ideas than for what it is remembered. Edison never intended for his invention to be used for music. Music was fourth on his “list of possibilities” (Taylor 13). A recording of “Mary Had a Little Lamb” ushered in a new era of music in 1877 (Rubery 10). The machine worked mechanically, and as such, no electricity was required…
