>>53211271 i do free improv with two guys where my main input is i have spaghetti western samples played with a random number generator then i manipulate them live. one dude percusses and the other plays something different almost every time. he can play like 27 instruments pretty well.
Idk man fuck. I make lo-fi black music / chamber pop / shoegaze with my childhood best friend and basically brother.
Shit works out nicely because we both always played a bunch of instruments and had identical music tastes.
We need to start playing live, tho. some niggas at uva where he goes are lookin to play with us, and definitely more ppl once we, and a bunch of niggas we know from around the state, all transfer to vcu but yeah im restless rn. we're bussin demo after demo, i just wanna get out and play, ya know?
>>53211848 yeah i feel ya, but some are legitimately good. it's just, most arent...at all.
Not really sure. I can sing and play rhythm guitar. A friend of mine is a great lead guitarist, and another is a great drummer. When I jam with the guitarist we kinda just do 90s alt stuff, but when I jam with the drummer we just do hardcore. They both want to do a music project and my personality gels with both of them, but they haven't met yet. I'm really into post-hardcore, noise rock, jangle pop, and gothic rock, the drummer is into hardcore and pizzacore, and the guitarist is into death metal. There's or a ton of common ground, but I guess given the commonalities between these types of music it'll probably sound heavy and alternative-ish.
>>53211271 i am technically in a band but we haven't jammed in almost a year, the other member is still totally cool with recording though, so I guess the band is still alive
we're both inspired by 90's rock and post-rock, he's quite into post-punk / funk, and I'm into skramz. and I really try to integrate all kinds of genres into the mix, like arabic music, celtic music... he plays the drums and the bass, I've got another friend who plays bass but he lives further away, and I play the guitar and piano. my mother also plays violin but haven't asked her to play with me, might want to at some point tbh
at this point it's more ideas than concrete things
I sound like At The Drive In, Glassjaw, Radiohead, Deerhoof, HEALTH, The Dismemberment Plan, and Rega all had a round-table meeting on the perfect way to make a poorly-produced rock album. And apparently people like it, I get a small trickle of listeners on soundcloud and bandcamp, people say nice things about it. I think it gets looked over because people think any and all m/u/ rock artists are those REVERB MAXIMIZES pieces of shit. I don't think any of my current releases have any reverb on them, like at all.
>>53211848 C'mon man it's not fair to generalize like that, people do take the reverb-over-everything too far sometimes (usually when they're using it as a crutch to cover avoidable mistakes up) but there is some brilliant stuff that falls pretty comfortably under the "bedroom pop" genre.
Anyway speaking of bedroom pop that is also my "band" although it's mostly just me. When I record Big Projects (like albums) I'll call on some friends to help out with instruments that I can't play, but I am a control freak and enjoy writing all the parts myself and think the method suits the style of music pretty well. I do have a producer (in a broad sense of the word) that I work with pretty closely on just about everything and I would really like to be in a band with at least a drummer and a bassist (ideally with another guitarist and everyone can sing), but I live in a tiny apartment and also just don't really have time to be in a band right now.
I was the drummer in a dadrock cover band when I was 16. Now I just play alone in the darkness of my room recording whatever shitty ideas I have on my shitty squier guitar connected to my shitty laptop which has shitty recording abilities, shitty ideas that will never actually be full fucking songs just files on my computer right beside my shitty memes folder.
I'm a solo keyboardist at the moment, mainly working in symphonic electro-prog. My live gigs are mixtures of original material, covers of 70s prog and electronica (such as The Cinema Show by Genesis and Oxygene 6 by Jean-Michel Jarre), and off-the-wall performances of random songs that I like (including the Neon Genesis Evangelion theme, and an ironic electro song that combines When I'm Cleaning Windows by George Formby, the Dead Flag Blues, and "I Wear My Dad's Dirty Socks" by Tim and Eric).
I've had guest appearances with several of the other bands on the local college circuit (including a psychedelic jam band that only played 2 shows, and a funk rock outfit where I dressed up as Barry Spaggot). But I'm still not in a proper band yet.
Were trying to make some bluegrass type stuff, also maybe some folk. We're also gonna make little interludes and bumpers of some funny smooth jazz or almost Vaporwave type stuff for intros, outros, and segues.
>>53216797 >>53217411 Basically this. The definition of what a band can be capable of producing should change as well, since everyone in any given band should be able to bring in their own world of sounds.
>>53216797 I have a band where it is very difficult to get everybody together to practice/work on new material, so I had to take the reigns and be sort of the 'leader' of the group. I record by myself, but I'm really only good what I do within the band - vocals, rhythm, basic chord progressions/song structure - trying to do everything myself when I know I have more capable bandmates makes me want to jump off a bridge.
I've been working on a 5 song EP for 4 months already, the parts my bandmates recorded aren't really strong enough so I've been trying to fix it and play my parts/come up with new ideas and it is fucking excruciating. Any tips to keep me from going insane? I'm not even finished one full song yet.
Only advice I can give from experience is just work work work on it, as much as you possibly can. If you are a student or unemployed then this should be quite reasonable. I recently had a week off work and didn't leave my room or even speak to my flatmates. They thought I was suicidal or something, but I was just working on my shit and trying to get better.
Also try to spend free time (within reason) doing something that will somehow help you with your music. i.e. watching recording/mixing tutorials instead of funny videos on youtube.
Bounce some unfinished tracks and put them on your ipod so you can listen to them wherever you go - ideas often come from strange environments.
