Duke Ellington is by far a better musician.

People will try and deny this with personal attacks against the author of the tweet/those who share the same opinion.

The cycle of new wave-plebeians will continue.

what a horrible argument

music is about much more than notation

This argument was fully realized in the 80s, when composers finally developed the most genius music in the world. Everyone stop making music now.
>>
>>53475057
music isn't subjective. taste is subjective. assuming everyone on earth including the composer who posted what he did on twitter is aware of this spellbinding obvious fact, how do you defend yourself? quality of taste works in opposition to itself. the taster's ability to understand his own is what makes it good. so, for your personal, subjective enjoyment, how do you defend yourself? you may want to start with what the dots indicate

Why aren't you listening to the greatest music ever written (pic related) right now?: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qxbpF_aW4vU

haha, can't wait to use this piece with a bagpipes ensemble.

Imagine at least 10% of this actually staged. I would pay $5 to see that.

Muh complexity fags need to end themselves. Go tip your trilbies to some Dream Theater

>>53474897

Viola parts are boring by nature, and this is a 3rd violin (viola-treble clef) part of an arrangement of Beethoven for students.

john stump wasn't a musical genius but definitely a comedic one

i'd really like to see a computer generated performance of that composition, if it's even possible

I bet you only listened to Merzbow and decided to completely disregard everything. Thank God he is the entry-level barrier.
>>
there's no rap on that score

kanye's raps are incredibly complex, much, MUCH more complex than the raps of duke ellington, who could often barely string more than a few sentences together
>>
>>53475253
1. never said it was bad
2. why are noisefags so defensive?
>>
>>53475229
>at least
why are you implying it's bad?
It's certainly better than Kanye West and Duke Ellington, it's a lot better than noise and it's far from noise.
I take issue with the complexity = better doctrine, but don't get me wrong, Ferneyhough is way better than Kanye, thought I'm certainly not sure that Ferneyhough has written anything better than the masterfully simple music of Erik Satie for instance (I'd still say Ferneyhough was a better composer than Satie as he's more consistent, but a few of Saties works are brilliant and incredibly simple.)
>>
>>53474881
>intricate
a poor word you used as intricate is often very positive in it's meaning
>>
>>53475143
but "better" is subjective you dingus

This is harmony, it's supposed to be simple anon.
>>
>the complexity is in making it sound nice
>>
>>53474897
>3rd violin
>>
>>53475182
not dissing, just saying that this was meant for harmony, not melody, which is significantly simpler.
