To MAKE music, acoustic instruments were used for most purposes. The only electronic instruments were electronic organs (the Hammond organ was introduced in 1934 and competitors soon followed), electric guitars and theremins (mostly used in movie scores).

To RECORD music, the vast majority of recordings were made using microphones, tube (valve) amplifiers, and cutting lathes that cut 78-rpm discs. These held 3 to 5 minutes of music on each side and were manufactured like cookies, pressing molten globs of plastic between stampers that held "negatives" of the original disk, with ridges matching the grooves that would be stamped into the plastic. The plastic was very stiff and did not take detailed impressions, so the sound quality was only somewhat better than a modern telephone.

The ways in which music is produced and marketed have changed significantly as technology has advanced. Today, many music careers involve information technology. The broad category of information technology consists of any job in which technology is used to create, store or transfer information . Individuals who are tech savvy and who wish to work in the music industry may find that a music-relatedinformation technology career is their key to success.

Chlorine is used in technology because you can use it when you make cleaning materials and it also can help you to clean your pools. It may or may not be used in technology but it is used in every day life.

This question is incredibly broad. Dozens and dozens of technology types can be used to improve the recording, editing, timbres, sonorities etc. of music. Probably one of the most common is MIDI technology, which allows you to build tunes with a limited set of instruments to play on any system that has a MIDI interpreter. And that's just software you can download.

Use of new technology can help make the working environment safer than it was, but it can also make it less safe. Any technology must be used with care and forethought to ensure it is used safely.
