>>61807255 It seems kind of stupid to say that the majority of music in the world isn't obscure >>61808128 This is the real answer though, its obvious that things that are more popular on /mu/ will get more people posting in threads, your question is pretty self-explanatory
the world of music according to /mu/ >000's years of classical all sounds the same, boring >jazz started in the 50s, finished by the 70s, then The Epic >80 years of funk, soul and r&b has 8 albums plus Frank Ocean >centuries of world music is Exuma, Feta Kuti, Bob Marley and Talking Heads >electronic music is 8 EDM DJs and 4 IDM artists >hip hop is the pinnacle of modern artistic expressiveness and too varied to comprehend >pop/rock is the most expansive, creative, ecelectic, patrician and progressive music ever >noise isn't even music >3 chord and EDM loop pop with female vocal singer is the future
>>61808587 Obviously this board is more interested in discussing pop/rock if you want to categorize it like that, but it's not like classical and jazz aren't sometimes talked about. If people who like those genres would be less abrasive and accept that some people just don't want to listen to them then I think people would be more interested in trying to listen to some of it.
But even with pop/rock (which includes hip hop and electronic music genres) /mu/ only talks about a small portion of it.
>>61808767 Also if people who espoused classical and jazz would come up with a consistent way of categorizing stuff that might help too. What happened to that pop/art/folk thing people always bring up.
>>61812948 >I think that most people actually have varied enough taste, or at least have listened to a lot of music. lol
>>61813062 >Free jazz is an approach to jazz music that was first developed in the 1950s and 1960s. Though the music of free jazz composers varied widely, a common feature was dissatisfaction with the limitations of bebop, hard bop, and modal jazz that had developed in the 1940s and 1950s.
>>61813163 >>I think that most people actually have varied enough taste, or at least have listened to a lot of music. >lol No really, I think we do. How much music do you have on your computer? How many genres are covered?
The average person has fewer than ten thousand individual tracks in their library — just look it up, one source says 3000, another 7000, and given how they're collected (stats collected by music apps) they're probably above the actual averages.
And although "all the music in the world" amounts to way more than any person could listen to in terms of time, a lot of it is similar. A lot of it is good too. But if you're curious enough, you can easily get a passable overview of all major music genres in your library.
>>61813452 The majority of /mu/ have 95% rock and subgenres (having numerous names for rock doesn't make your library eclectic, just autistic), hip hop, pop and a few jazz/r&b albums because Fantano gave them a high score.
>>61813492 The catalog only shows the lowest common denominators. Look at sharethreads and more specialized threads — there's plenty of variety. >>61808128 is right: we won't start a thread about a little-known album because it would get no replies. It doesn't mean we don't know about obscure albums.
There are 3500+ releases in my library. I must have posted, I don't know, maybe 0.01% of those as OP once.
>>61813492 >having numerous names for rock doesn't make your library eclectic nobody who categorizes shit down to the microgenre actually thinks that. its so albums are grouped with other albums that share the same characteristics
