Re: Does Contemporary Music Suck?

If anything, by not having to perform the music live, I can do stuff outside my technical means (see my long post on the previous page of the thread). I don't have to settle for whatever chord shapes I can manage on a guitar etc. I remember Moby making that kind of argument, that traditional instru...

Re: Does Contemporary Music Suck?

Hello, I am hesitant to comment although I have read all posts thus far and considered them. I'll put forward an idea why contemporary music is disappointing (a better word for it to my thinking and feeling). It is far too easy to make music today. I am not a musician - beyond a few months plunking...

Re: Does Contemporary Music Suck?

I've also sometimes wondered if maybe there's just not that much you can do with a really simple foundation like most pop music. Like with the common harmony out there (just a few basic chord progressions) and melody lines being driven more by rhythmic delivery. Punk, working within a lot of limits,...

Re: Does Contemporary Music Suck?

Just a ramble coming at this from the perspective of someone who makes electronic music as a hobby. Only talking about the "laptop"/production aspect. Since childhood I've loved synthesizer music.

Re: The Great IMCT Jamboree and Trade Expo, 2022

I haven't been sleeping much for a week now and woke up with a migraine. If I feel better I will make it but it isn't looking good.

Re: The Political Gun Thread

There was an interesting assertion that I saw the other day that contra the sort of romantic (?) myth of the modern guerilla army that beats back an overwhelming military force, that pretty much all of these smaller guerilla forces still have the backing and support of some major state or another t...

Re: The Political Gun Thread

Always 1. horrified when this thread comes up because it means another shooting, 2. embarrassed when this thread comes up because I'm on the other side of it since it was started.

Would like to see the populace and the cops alike disarmed.
