"This deluge of more music than anyone can hear will change the very meaning of ‘music’ in a profound way."

True enough - also the fact that it is now available to everyone at almost no cost.

But I also think that it means there is now some audience out there for all music - and this is good. Bach never sold scores for income and his audience was the few hundred that attended church services in Leipzig. Art may yet survive in a world with a smaller number of listeners for each kind of music.
