A subgenre of noise, found sounds, and musique concrete. Super obscure, short, and/or low-quality youtube videos, eschewing traditional notions of musicality. Anything with more than 20 views is excluded by default.
In 2015 I wanted to create a concept album using authentic death/torture/gore videos I found on the internet. But then I didn't because it was too edgy for me. Maybe I should do it, though.
we need to keep this hush hush so that the videos will stay below 20 views. None of us saw anything. grab these links and run!
I saw a website where you can search for youtube videos under a specific number of views, there was a lot of out of context, weird shit when I pressed random a few times.
Anyone remember what it's called?
DO YOU KNOW HOW MUCH MATERIAL WE CAN GET FROM SOFTCORE PORN?
i'm fucking dying at the jurassic park-obsessed guy in the OP post

mmmm nice digs
Time for some weird stuff:
Fuck, it makes music now? I hoped for this back when it started, do you have a link?
Geogaddi. A few tracks across the three NONE OF THIS IS REAL tapes. The soundtrack to Vanilla Sky.
She actually kinda has a big following on Reddit since she has like 80,000 videos of her just singing the same weird happy birthday song with different names. She re-sings the song in a new take each time, too, no copying or pasting.
I'm bored so I'm going to type out the text from that "Youtube is controlling my life" dude:
I strongly believe that my mom was being monitored and harrassed by Youtube, Universal Pictures, and their affiliates [???] secret of sorts, she had uncovered within the original trilogy of Jurassic Park films.
Let me start by saying as early on as I can that I am not crazy - never been diagnosed with schizophrenia, anxiety disorder, or any other mental illness. I'm just good at noticing patterns.
I've always been a big Jurassic Park fan.
I saw the first film [??????????] always shared with my mother.
It's possible that Youtube's part in the harrassment campaign may have started with their removal of her various tribute videos to Jurassic Park after her passing, but those may also merely be the result of the churning of the vast machine that is the automated copyright-takedown system.
As big of a JP fan as I am,
I was never as deeply into the franchise as my mom was. She would watch the entire trilogy (this was before Jurassic World's release) on the last weekend of every month.
She would buy JP-branded oatmeals and sugary cereals, long after her doctor advised her to steer clear of these for her health. [???????] editing together tribute videos on Youtube - basically like
those Linkin Park anime music videos, sans anime.
I started noticing their absences toward the end of 2015.
Without access to her Youtube password, I could only re-upload the videos she had created on her old laptop.
I've contacted Youtube many times regarding the videos, but have only received canned auto-responses and unhelpful, yet sympathetic, responses from actual employees after pressing the matter.
The song sounds like a really bad cover of Hemorrhage In My Hands by Fuel.
Using my Soundcloud for this track because I'm too lazy to make a new one. I might make one later. For now, "enjoy".
>The image is small and may appear blurry.
That song made me chuckle a few times since the result is completely random, the question is: Should these songs be appealing and follow a pattern or should we just stick to random pieces of audio all put together?
postin some img-series deep internet. first one is really surreal
i like this one a lot: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lH8-rDnsNcs
found this guy's channel as well, which is crazy: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCjQz2tISjRoy3EzJlNXCHNw/videos
mostly just blank videos of him playing on a keyboard or ranting about feminism or something. weird shit
This is actually a pretty good idea
I was actually thinking of something before this thread of a modern equivalent to Williams Mix. I'm not too sure but I think this could have potential to be it
I remixed it.
We should send this to him, he was active like a few minutes ago. Not in a dumbass le reddit armie way, just encourage him to make more weird Jurassic videos that we, in turn, can remix.
What exactly is this genre? I don't understand.
Is it vaporwave/plunderphonics made with obscure Youtube samples?
>eschewing traditional notions of musicality
most of the videos on this one's channel aren't sub-20 views but they've always struck me as youtube oddities
not to mention the odd outsider music acts associated with it
What do you guys think about this: Deep Internet's aesthetic when it comes to album covers consists primarily of screenshots of obscure YouTube videos (or pictures that look like they could be obscure YouTube video thumbnails) in 240p quality or lower. Pic related. Someone could use it as an album cover.
Here's another one made with some off >>62023074
Should the genre really be called Deep Internet or, if it's going to be centred around the concept of YouTube, should its name reflect that? Like, I don't know, DeepTube or something like that?
not restricted to youtube, the same eerie sense of obscurity could equally apply to vimeo or, fittingly, a random vocaroo dropped by someone blackout drunk in a 4chan thread, something tiny and invisible hidden in the shadows of the information superhighway
It is done.
This is just raw internet musique concrete, though. Collages could be very fun as well.
This whole thing going on with this ChronosForLife dude is weirding me out in a way that's different from most random internet schizophrenics, especially considering he noticed his view count jump up at the same moment and decided to make a response video. Feels like some shit out of ILoveBees or something.
When i got to the last part of the video i almost cried
fuck, it's coming together now...that jurassic park tribute video might've been the last thing his mom made before dying. his love of jurassic park is him carrying the torch for her after her untimely passing, and fucking youtube is taking down her passion, her art, because of some automated copyright takedown algorithm.
i'm gonna go call my mom...
Why stop at youtube? we can go deeper
i'm not sure, i don't know enough about the dude to speculate, but i think it's really sweet and thoughtful of him to continue his mom's work like that.
i'm curious about this whole "Erratas system" thing, i don't know but i get the impression that that's a medical life support machine or something? i've heard of it before.
it's super interesting looking in on someone's life like this.
He seems like a really cool, supportive dad. Like he always knows how to make his kids smile and laugh no matter how down they are. I bet his family is really close too. I bet that dad would do anything to make his kids happy. I bet he was there for them.
I don't know this feel. It's pleasing to see other people who do.
I wish my dad loved me.
>Let's make this a little more interesting.
1. Go to http://www.1728.org/bandname.htm and the first result you get is the name of your band.
2. Go to http://watchout4snakes.com/wo4snakes/Random/RandomSentence . This will be the title of your new album.
3. Go to http://www.deviantart.com/?order=5. The third picture, no matter what it is, will be your album cover.
4. Go to http://www.generatorland.com/usergenerator.aspx?id=1258 to determine your album's genre.
>lifting your ideas from a viral tumblr post regurgitating 4chan posts
theres so much glory to behold in these hidden gems
create a harsh noise wall song or harsh noise song and save it
then merge many different videos into one, this create a harsh noise wall song that is not harsh, save it.
then get field recordings.
merge those 3 (yes 3, the second part will be just one sound, since you merged them) and save it making sure they dont clip
So what is this deep internet thing all about? I read the OP and a couple of posts, but I still cannot quite understand. Is it like the lowest possible quality for music with influences of noise, sound collage, and music concrete/tape music? Could album covers just be low quality, random images?
OP I think this channel is what you're looking for:
Some of these videos have music from other people, but here are a few of the more intriguing videos:
It is, Deep Internet is like that type of story you have never heard of, but you know it's sitting there waiting for a listener. It's a show that needs no crowd and tells you the story of one and different men at the same time who recorded a piece of their life or simply filmed something random and decided to put it on the web. Nevertheless, it is a reflection of our existence.
for the record I'm pretty sure it's a netlabel site
who all is associated I don't know but the chiptune artist zan-zan-zawa-veia and this odd one-off bandcamp/soundcloud IDM/electropop/demoscene project called tawny ant link to it
I've also found botb.club which has some associated artists on it and according to the internet archive used to have a page called ~zzzv (zan-zan-zawa-veia) and currently still has a page with a username from a soundcloud account shared by the tawny ant soundcloud
Let's see if this thread is still up then.
Noted for the next release. I'm aiming for 30-40 minutes of internet sounds with the next one. Ill make sure to include alternate album covers then.
/r/ing deep sea noise. Literally just sounds of extreme ocean depths. I've tried finding some before but only came up with waves and whale sounds or shit like that.
I want something like those planet sounds but for ocean depths.
Planet sounds for reference: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oWTC7P1Dprw
>But that's not deep internet, though.
Yeah sorry, this thread made me think of it so I rolled with it. Thanks for the recs - I'll be seeing myself out now
wow man great help
you mean like RUI did to hypergrunge yesterday?
>did /mu/ ever been successful at inventing a new genre?
Depends on what you call successfull.
We invented tonefield that is basically what you have when you get the characteristics of the painting genre called color field (see pic for example) and convert them to musical ones using logic, painting and music theory skills.
The problem is that the music made for this genre until this moment sucks.
But yes, this is a real sub-genre, the closest thing is some onkyo albums, but they call a bunch of different stuff onkyo (lowercase style stuff, glitch, eai, play a note then waitin seconds and playing another note then waiting more seconds and playing another.....)
This label made by mutant was made to catalog some of the stuff made by /mu/.
this stuff was to hated that few produced stuff to it, the only microgenre thing more hated than this was maybe oceangrunge
In the end the sub-genre works is basically like this:
1- The song start with a silent part with 1 second (or more) or with a tone a tone with 1 second or more (tone must have same waveform, frequency and amplitide during its entire lenght)
2-Song ends or continue with with a new silent part with 1 second (or more) or with new a tone a tone with 1 second or more (tone must have same waveform, frequency and amplitide during its entire lenght)
3-Go back to 2.
yes, but how you expect it. It's amazing tho. The gif is linked on the bandcamp page and is apparently the official cover art.
>Oceangrunge is amazing though.
there are only about 8 people on /mu/ who think that, and they're all insufferable samefags who try way too hard to push it as the next big meme
interested to know who this guy is to have been able to get such big names on an obscure post-vaporwave/glitch release
also nice tribbles
>there are only about 8 people on /mu/ who think that, and they're all insufferable samefags who try way too hard to push it as the next big meme
This, tonefield is ULTRA bad (at least the songs already made) but at least was not spammed
why is it that the literal meme track with miley on it has such fucking beautiful vocal manipulation
also does anyone have this?
well, i kind of want to wait until there's another thread, this one's almost dead. anyone want to make a new one? i don't want to make one and put it in the OP since it'll look like i'm making a thread just about this specific video.
I think a good direction to take this is one where we take sampling and audio from these videos and form concepts or stories for these albums. It should show that no matter how insignificant or small your ideas and experiences, we share a common story. Lets try and make it cohesive.
