ITT: Phrases about music that make your cringe.
>too bad they don't have the talent to use real instruments instead of making music with computer noises
>I don't like this, therefore it is not music
Fuck those people who classify anything not in their tastes as "not real music"
>all music today sucks! Literally the only three artists that exist currerly are Justin bieber, nicki minaj, and miley Cyrus
Wrongenners are the worst and so ignorant on how much music is actually being made today
>You only like rap because white guilt
When I go to a restaurant and break the laws of the universe by conjuring matter out of nothingness to recreate my meal and then don't pay for the meal 1st meal in ordered but didn't eat. That's the real scenario.
Two different styles of skills might not be able to be compared together to determine which one is more difficult?! Even though difficulty is often a subjective term?! Inconceivable!
This post was about Taylor Swift's comments in regard to streaming music, but you couldn't hold back your inner white knight could ya?There is nothing ethically wrong with piracy. The value you or the music industry (or even the artist) places on music is arbitrary, in the end they are simply manipulating sound waves, the drive for money comes not from the music but from the need to prosper in today's world. if you want to look at music as purely a commodity than go ahead, but music existed before the confines of capitalism.
>but you couldn't hold back your inner white knight could ya?
I don't give a shit about Taylor Swift. And I'm a heterosexual female, btw.
>There is nothing ethically wrong with piracy. The value you or the music industry (or even the artist) places on music is arbitrary
Maybe when one person does it but when millions do it, then it becomes a major problem
> in the end they are simply manipulating sound waves
You're not the one manipulating those waves
>music existed before the confines of capitalism.
And you're objectively wrong. Having the technical proficiency to operate incredibly complex software, compose all the music, and be skilled in audio engineering is a completely different set of skills than just being skilled at playing guitar. Sure, some of them mix, but mastering music production is just as much of an accomplishment as mastering playing the guitar.
>There is nothing ethically wrong with piracy
I usually never use that kind of pictures, but damn son, it fits you like a glove.
>you also think it's ethically wrong to have libraries or to sell used media.
You don't keep the books you take out of a library nor do you sell used media without expecting a profit.
mastering a physical instrument =/= making good music
Whenever someone makes that pathetic comment about how electronic artists don't play real instruments all I hear is
>i've never composed a decent piece of music so I will relieve the pain in my asshole by using the fact that I know 4 chords on the guitar."
Also, you do realize that most of the musicians who use software to make music actually do know music theory and do play an instrument? amazing huh
I should have to pay to look at paintings. Its only fair. I didnt paint them.
same here but I also included rap and "techno"
You know it's hard to decide which of these is worse. I mean when you like everything but country it means you probably don't listen to much music at all but when you say you like country it usually means you're some conservative hillbilly who only likes country. I think it's better just not to mention it. Since it's a folk subgenre, I usually just lump it in with that myself.
Ok while I do not ahve a way to show most of electronic musicians have played an instrument, I have some I remember off my head:
Afrojack learned how to play piano when he was like 6 or some shit
Both members of Infected mushroom learned how to play the piano at age 8
Skrillex had a band before he went off with his solo career
One guy from daft punk played the piano from a really young age, other one not sure
>nor do you sell used media without expecting a profit.
Which, by an anti-piracy advocate's logic, is even worse than piracy because you're selling a piece of media and receiving a profit entirely for yourself, with zero going to the content creators who provided it in the first place. Whereas with piracy, it is a null transaction in which no money is received or deducted by any party involved.
>it usually means you're some conservative hillbilly who only likes country
I used to think this, but there is actually plenty of friendly, decent, fairly liberal white trash in New England that love country. The only country fans I don't like are self-described "country girls"
you've never even been outside of the city have you
country may be appreciated more in the midwest, like how jazz might be listened to more often in New Orleans, but it's far and away from being the only genre people listen to in those areas.
if you find someone who listens to everything but country, it's because they dismissed it without listening to anything beyond the top-40 whatever that has no soul (or worse, not even listening to that)
>I post pictures of fedoras when someone likes a band or makes an argument that I only have a gut-reaction distaste for and I'm not articulate enough to coherently express why
Well, I live in a conservative religious shithole (like I'm surprised these people have running water) so here when people say they like country, I knew that was they were going to say from the moment I first saw them.
I mean I love country but not as my favorite genre and I don't love it blindly (which most of its fans do). Like I am fully aware a lot of it is shit.
Because people who claim that playing a real instrument is more skillful than creating the sound using a computer place too much value and emphasis on the physicality of performing music rather than on the more abstract, cerebral elements of actually creating a coherent sonic composition.
Even popular only in certain groups.
>if you listen to this music, you never head the rest of the genre
>but I did
>fuck off, you dont know music
People who are thinking
>it's popular, means it's good
Are not better.
>I dont have a favorite band. I only listen to the top in Spotify
>i am an objective third party who can judge the quality of all sounds that exist and i think the sounds you prefer to listen to are objectively bad and you should, instead, listen to the sounds i prefer
"Used" means that whatever you're selling was "used" before you sold it. So, if you bought it, used it, then sold it, something would go to the content creators. It's tricky, because it's all the way there in the beginning, but to obtain the object in the first place something has to go to the content creators.
You shouldn't dislike it because it's too accessible, you should dislike it because it's too generic and isn't unique enough to actually warrant you wasting time to listen to it. That isn't the same as disliking it because it's accessible
I don't know why people are hating on this, band merch, appearance fees, hell, even views on fucking youtube generate revenue. if you're gonna get butthurt about muh album sales then maybe start a bandcamp page and set it for a reasonable price.
I'm surprised how many people here will defend their flawed opinions tooth and nail over an anonymous imageboard.
make me an electronic masterpiece in a week if it's so damn retard easy and tell me you didn't have to have prior knowledge of basic piano or music compositional skills by the end of it.
>I read the review, its supposed to be shit.
>"This is garbage
Wheres the lyrics?
where's the story?"
>people just have this preconceived notion that..
>yeah, like's that's the whole idea behind our band.
>'music without lyrics is boring'
>doesn't really listen to them, they can be even in language he/she doesn't know
I don't think music without vocals/lyrics is boring but I do prefer them being there for some reason even if I don't pay too much attention to them, or even if they're in a language I don't understand. So I can kind of see where that person is coming from. They're still an idiot though.
