Tell me your sins, /mu/
I still unironically listen to, and enjoy, chillwave in 2016.
I spent the last two months working endlessly on a hip-hop EP which I know is not going to go anywhere. Idk why I even did it. I'm addicted to smoking cigarettes even though I'm broke. I'm fucking a girl who's 3 years older then me whom I don't even like cause I don't want to hurt her feeling s and my family think I'm a loser.
Shit is weird.
i think martin garrix and skrillex are better producers than anyone else out there and saying you´re into rap means automatically a stamp of degenerate coz the background beat is two second loop and some hobo talking crap about how hobo he is. also rock is pityful and only future mainstream should be jazz+mainstream edm+orchestral
I've suddenly gained a huge interest in Nirvana again after 5 years and have been buying and collecting their albums
I almost bought "Nevermind" on Vinyl today but ended up buying 2 Herb Alpert albums instead
I've played music for almost ten years and my tone ear is still shit. I occasionaly try to practice it but drop my routine after a couple of weeks so I quickly forget what I've learned. Overall my practice routines are shit.
I am biased in favor of music made in my home country which has lead to a situation where most of the music I listen to is made here at the expense of big classic bands and albums. I've still yet to hear a Beatles album or DSoTM.
I really like dadrock and even have some dadrock records
Here are some artists that I really like:
Neutral milk hotel
Devin townsend project
TV on the radio
The black keys
Also, I cringe whenever someone claims that some music is objectively better than some other music because the notion of objectivity in music is laughably absurd and unjustifiable.
People often compare musical taste to taste in food. As in pop and rock are like fast food, and more intellectual musics are like going to nice restaurant with great chefs. How do you make of that?
can't tell if you're baiting or actually this naive, ignorant and pretentious.
On the off chance that this isn't bait, just because the analogy fits doesn't mean that both activities are same in every respect. Moreover, who said taste in food isn't subjective?
I'd elaborate further but I'm 99% sure you're baiting so I'll stop.
I wasn't baiting. I don't agree with it either, but I have seen people who strongly believe it, I just wanted to make conversation.
>who said taste in food isn't subjective?
If think the point they're trying to make is about the time, care, skill, and effort put into the food by chefs compared to fast food.
Ok. I will give you the benefit of doubt and continue this for the sake of conversation.
all completely arbitrary factors. People here like to pretend and act patrician based on these factors but they aren't grounded in anything. One could just as easily pick "number of chords played" as a factor which is just as valid as any of these above.
Moreover, the pointlessness of these factors fail again when you consider prodigies who can effortlessly and instantly create enjoyable music.
Consider Bach or Beethoven. Do you think it would take them much effort or time or care to produce music that would be considered good?
my overall point is that any factor that you might use to create an ordering of superiority in music can be dismissed as completely arbitrary.
in fact from a utilitarian's perspective, the music which he/she would consider best is that which achieves it's goal most efficiently. If the goal can be taken as effectively providing enjoyment to listeners then pop music suddenly can't be dismissed anymore.
If your goal is to be original, different, patrician or highbrow then pop music takes a beating.
Since my goal is to listen to music that I enjoy most, I do not discriminate against any artist or genre based on anything apart from how much I like it's music.
Different people enjoy different music and therefore place different artists in different ordering.
IF you claim the existence of an absolute objective ordering in music then show me a solid justifiable non-arbitrary metric to judge it by.
(protip: you can't)
unofficially off yourself :^)
you know why you´re all haters coz you´re stuck in the old fashioned world with old morales and react like bunch of old grumpy men to anything new which is why you can´t understand EDM you´re too old for that.
go back to your shitty 90´s rock and hip hop EP´s you dont have the right to talk to me with your middle aged, bored down, tasteless, ugly, unfashionable hipster shit favourites. You fucking casual.
>At very rare times, maybe once every other year I listen to nightcore mixes while browsing hentai. So to satisfy my inner weeab.
>I've never listened to the Beatles in spite of all the music elitists I know
>I also enjoy every single album by Bring Me The Horison.
>I listen to Vaporwave unironically in 2016
just end me senpai
I like to venture into new music but my taste is still very pleb in general.
Pic related is my favourite chart
I enjoy some of kanye west's music. Can't admit it to anyone I know irl because they all think he's a trash pop artist.
I think the most effective way to find artists you will like is to listen to ones that match with your MBTI.
This seriously works, most people don't realize that the music they prefer and naturally gravitate to is by their personality type, and the artists they have the taste for will reflect this.
Despite my taste in music constantly evolving and developing I still listen to Killswitch Engage and other Metalcore acts frequently. I also go on massive binges of Vocaloid. Speaking of Vocaloid, I can't stop using it in my music despite being an ambient artist and trying to avoid using it.
Just take an MBTI test online and your answers will determine the results for your personality type:
After that you can search for musicians who have the same type as you, like googling "ISFP musicians" or whatever your type may be. Personalitycafe has tons of threads for artists and what type they would most likely fall into.
This is also a nice source that deals with musicians in particular:
I understand that there isn't a way to confirm an artist's unless we know they have taken a test, and even with that it usually isn't enough.
It's more about having an understanding of and being able to recognize personality traits that are prominent in an individual, which is what most people who are familiar with cognitive functions and who are knowledgeable of the MBTI system use to make an accurate assumption in this case. These things can be found in pretty much every aspect of an artists music, from their writing, instrumentation, how they behave in interviews/performances, and what there is to know about their personal lives as well.
In the end, I simply use it as a tool to "refine" my taste in a way that filters out artists I would most likely or most likely not enjoy, and for me I find it to be helpful.
>People often compare musical taste to taste in food. As in pop and rock are like fast food, and more intellectual musics are like going to nice restaurant with great chefs. How do you make of that?
Nearly anyone can at least enjoy nice restaurants, even if they aren't foodies, whereas a lot of stuff considered 'intellectual' is a majority of people.
I love 70s instrumental prog. Everyone else seems to think it's a bit wanky and pretentious, so I guess I have shitty taste or something idk. Early Camel, Genesis and Mike Oldfield are fantastic though.
>If think the point they're trying to make is about the time, care, skill, and effort put into the food by chefs compared to fast food.
Time/Skill/Effort doesn't mean anything if you got a shit recipe/shit song and the only required skill is the skill you need to perform the recipe/song. Being more experimental means you get to use less of tried and true tricks to make shit enjoyable
The creators of MBTI never intended it to be taken as a way to label or diagnose people. It's simply a tool for studying psychological behavior. Unlike horoscopes/bloodtypes and other ways people have used to judge personality, MBTI is based on YOUR input and information that YOU give in the case of a questionare versus arbitrary factors that you have no control over/ This is what differentiates it from pseudo-science. The personality of humans are far more complex then narrowing it down to four traits that represent a type, but the concepts that it does cover are indeed real and are incorporated to the way we function in general.
My three favourite songs are:
I love the music I listen to but openly admit I have poor/dad-tier taste.
You got shit taste anon
MBTI is complete hocus pocus junk science that's based on the extremely spurious work of two women with literally no psychological education who completely misunderstood Jung.
Not only is MBTI junk, there has been found to be no correlation between music taste and MBTI personality type.
