>>51446890 You can't. >it's kind of experimental electronic oh like Skrillex, anon? >it's sort of like 80s sci-fi film music oh like Drive, anon? >it's progressive electronic what's that mean? >[with Replica] it's sample-based and called "plunderphonics" oh like Eminem, anon? >it's music oh like Nicki Minaj, anon?
>>51447141 This is why I've never tried to get any friends into him. They think they're top shit because they listen to the Drive and Hotline Miami soundtrack and think synthwave is innovative and experimental. They'd ruin OPN for me
I guess the reason I started the thread is because I showed a friend an OPN track the other day and this guy has a pretty open mind about things, but he just gave me the stupidest look and was visibly holding back laughter. It really irked me just because I don't feel like there's any one I can share this music with, and part of me is bothered by listening to it just because I feel pretentious.
>>51447247 I never show my pleb friends the music I listen to. I once showed Can to this guy I met who gave the typical "I listen to everything" statement and like 30 seconds into the song he's yells OKAY IT SUCKS TURN IT OFF!!!
If that wasn't bad enough, he insisted that if it was any good, it'd be popular.
>>51447247 >visibly holding back laughter >HURRHURRHUEERHUR ID SOUNDZ LIEK A 80Z COMBERSHAL are you friends with retarded people or something? that's literally all i could imagine people thinking while listening and holding back laughter
>>51447342 >It was Nassau Well there's part of your problem. It's one of the best tracks on the album but way too weird for plebs. You gotta ease them into it. Start with something simple like Replica, Returnal, or Betrayed In The Octagon, then slowly move them onto his weirder tracks.
Just don't even bother. You may as well just tell them "you will never get it". I always have this fantasy that I'm tripping with pleb friends and I put some OPN on and they have some kind of epiphany while hearing the best thing to ever touch their eardrums.
>>51447757 it's pretty fucking strange to hear something like Replica or R+7 for the first time when all you listen to is pop and rock. Go look at youtube (or even rym) comments for R+7/Replica and you'll see.
Returnal starts with 2 or so minutes of straight noise which is pretty much an instant "wow anon this isn't music turn it off" so that one's off the table too.
wtf is elevator music, never in my life have I been in an elevator that played music, and let me tell I've been in a lot of elevators. Are elevators that play music really common in America/Europe or what?
>>51447757 It's really inaccessible for your average person. Even totally regular ambient like Brian Eno is strange for most people, let alone anything with samples or experimentation. >>51447791 >call it New Age oh like Enya, anon? I didn't know you were a middle aged woman~!
>>51447824 Is just a term that plebs use for background music. Usually people to be avoided. People that think the loudest most brash music is the best type of music. People that exclusively listen to anthems.
>>51447839 bullshit, most people have heard ambient music in soundtracks. they are just not used to listening to it in another context. play OPN and then play Henry Cow and see what you'd get a larger reaction out of
>>51447767 >>51447839 Most people above the age of 22 who have been to collage have experienced ''strange'' music, even those who listen to mainstream pop. Unless you show ONP to your grandparents you shouldn't have any problem. Also genres like chillstep-brostep etc are really popular nowadays, it's not like the majority of people listen to acoustic folk
>>51447897 Film is notorious for getting away with experimentation because people don't consider it. They see it as a part of the whole, not music in itself. I showed a girl The Plateaux Of Mirror and like 30 seconds in she asked "so when does the music begin?" and turned it off before it was even halfway over. Maybe I'm surrounded by particularly bad plebs, but ambient music is an enigma to every 'normal' person I've tried to get into it.
>>51447910 >chillstep-brostep I have friends who are massively into these genres and would listen to 10 seconds of OPN before turning it off. I tried showing them Jon Hopkins and they got bored in like 30 seconds
>>51447942 also. The majority of people listen to music to be stimulated. And in the post brostep days this is massively exaggerated. Most people listen to music to get amped up. Not to listen to experimental ambient music and have an existential crisis.
>>51446890 >In the past: Brilliant electronic music artist that has many layers to his music and still manages to be comprehensible.
>Now: One of those lazy fuckers that loops the same sound over and over and people claim their is something profound within when it's really him just not giving a shit anymore. He has pretty much been shit since Replica.
