I am a musician and I do make music. I like to make rock music of many different kinds and am thinking about forming a metal band with my good buddy. My college band broke up when my drummer moved back home so I have to start from scratch.
>>61518552 Are you telling me that a bunch of teenagers who circlejerk about how Led Zeppelin sucks but Carly Rae Jepsen, Justin Bieber and Grimes make unique and good music have no balls? Doesn't add up.
>>61518698 The thing is that if you have a band, it can't work out exactly like you want it to especially if you have a very specific vision. A band of 4 or 5 dudes needs to meet a compromise on what type of music to make and it's often not exactly how you imagined it turning out.
>>61518803 There's something that electronic music takes away from guitar, drums, vocals and bass. I'd say mainly that it takes months to years to even begin to make something that sounds good with real instruments. You have to physically work the instrument and there is so much to dynamics and tone that comes with skill which has no analog in electronic music. Something as subtle as refined or unrefined picking style can change the whole sound.
There's also the part where playing it live is way harder because you actually have to play the instruments.
>>61518731 I undetstand, ive jammed with friends and a few locals around my town And i see the differences in our styles, so for the past few months ive been saving money and buying equipment myself to record and have total control of what i want. The only problem is practicing and getting good enough at each other instrument
>>61519002 Yeah and your average person making electronic music does not have a set-up like that. I can't believe how butthurt you guys get about someone asserting that physically playing an instrument is more difficult than working an electronic interface, much of which can just be playing automatically live with literally 0 effort by simply replaying something you had written in the past.
>>61518899 Barebones acoustic music has it's own sound for sure, the appeal of electronic music is you can create exotic and other worldly sounds that you could never get with only acoustic instruments. Personally I'm way more interested in synthesis right now than guitars and drums, but that has it's place too and jamming with other people is still always going to be fun as hell
>>61519073 I do both, and they're both different types of hard t b h. Electronic music on computers is more abstract and focused on tweaking/composing, playing in a band is more about technical dexterity and sometimes improvising, however you can take on electronic music in a similar way
>>61519136 Sure, but just going up on stage and hitting play on a multiple instrument track that you pre-recorded while then tweaking what you want or maybe playing keyboard is just not an option with guitar, bass or drums.
>>61519073 >Yeah and your average person making electronic music does not have a set-up like that. a) the average person does not own collectors edition nickel plated les paul either a) the average person with access to a smaller system still maintains the same degree of "physical playability"
>I can't believe how butthurt you guys get about someone asserting that physically playing an instrument is more difficult than working an electronic interface neither is strictly more "difficult" than the other and no one besides you is butthurt here, friend
>working an electronic interface ... can just be playing automatically live with literally 0 effort by simply replaying something you had written in the past. "unnecessary and unsolicited expenditure of effort equates to musical quality" haha ok
>>61519106 I do, but i feel first i need to make something that will persuade people to be like "oh ok, i see where this guy is going." and them know i am band leader and in charge of the musical direction
>>61519372 You don't play the song exactly the same way each time you dumbass. Have you never heard of soloing, dynamic changes, different harmonies, speeding up or slowing down a song? Jesus christ man you obviously have never performed live with a band.
>>61519430 >soloing play some solo on a midi keyboard >dynamic changes move volume lever up or down >different harmonies turn harmony knob on harmonizer effect >speeding up or slowing down a song turn tempo knob on anything
Sometimes, when I'm working around the house or something, I'll hear a noise that I think sounds cool or pretty or something. I'll do it again and record it, and then I'll mix up a bunch of those sounds and create something kinda shitty. But it's fun.
>>61519639 >hip-hop inspired drums (almost can-ish) what the fuck does this mean? I understand you use loops and samples for hip hop, but Jaki's drumming is minimalist and sometimes uses layers to make it sound he's doing more at once. There is no hip hop inspired drumming because hip hop beats are almost entirely just sampled or derivative
wanna make some prog folk/post rock kinda mix, throw some ambient elements in there for good measure. need to start producing again too, trying to figure out deep house while making it not sound boring
>>61519854 lol even if you have programmed drums made in Generic DAW #87 it's still extremely derivative. Unless we're talking something like D'Angelo, wherein he and Questlove record beats(real drums) from their other experiences in music
>>61519370 I guess I agree with this. You have to realize he's not making the claim that the artist isn't the one producing the art. It's obviously a skill to produce something, but the power of art lies in what it evokes and the significance of art lies in what's done to it by people
