The music of the 21th century has been, until this point, characterized by its diversity. Many trends can be said to conform the landscape of current musical creation, such as polystylism and eclecticism, but these terms, being relatively new, are also hard to define. In general terms, the music of the current century has been profoundly influenced by technological development: computing has grown to a point where music can be easily produced with home resources. This, coupled with the new technologies of information, -particularly adided by the Internet and its related technology- has radically changed the way music is defined, conceived, marketed, and reproduced. There has been a slackening in the delimitation of musical genres, and in the roles of the player, composer, conductor, producer, and related positions in the music creation process and the music industry.
