Name a single musical innovation by popular music.
Protip: there aren't any.
Let's try some name-association: First word: Björk
>it doesn't matter that an artform has produced nothing of worth
That's not what I was saying. I'd say the fact that a lot of people enjoy that style of music is worth quite a lot. I don't like it (maybe except talking heads and a few others) but then again, I'm not forced to listen to it so I move on with my life and listen to the stuff I genuinely enjoy.
Well, it entirely depends on what you define as popular. Personally, I'd say yes not in the sense that most people listen to it on a regular basis, rather in the sense that everybody has heard of it and most people have listened to pieces from it at some point
>rather in the sense that everybody has heard of it and most people have listened to pieces from it at some point
Name a part of the St Matthew Passion you have heard.
Protip: you can't.
>he doesn't know what popular music is
Yes they are.
A programmed beat is just a musical unit that is repeated over the duration of a track.
AKA the definition of an ostinato.
Done in the 50's you fucking idiot.
Noise music was done in the 1910's by the Futurists.
>not modified already existing instruments.
Instruments were continually modified by composers in multitudes of ways, and if they weren't then they had a new instrument commissioned a la Wagner.
Pop music existed in the '50s, yeah
The Futurists used purpose-built noisemakers, and didn't distort the amplified/pre-recorded signals from their instruments.
I know this is a shitty bait thread made by a high schooler but come on senpai this is just weak
>Bartok and Shostakovich string quartets
Shredding was first done by guitarists such as Jimmy Page and Ritchie Blackmore you dipshit. It's impossible to shred on a violin or cello.
I posted before you posted those. I'll cede Stockhausen, but your response to the Futurism thing doesn't disprove anything, or even have anything to do with distortion.
Listen to Paganini or something
If you consider jazz as popular music, it introduced a shitton of innovations in instrumental playing. The trumpet for example, while in classical music it's only used for making the same boring fanfare noises, it was completely reinvented on jazz.
