This was my first self-conscious garage track, as in I set out to make a garage track and made a garage track. Everything before that were shots in the dark that'd occasionally land into some category.
An attempt at making something that sounds like the amplified silence tracks through regular samples.
Composition attempts from here on. I'm skipping on them though I might come back to them eventually.
Seeing as this is your 2015~2018 creative output, do you still do stuff now?
>>48No, not as much.
I made a minialbum or something.https://a.pomf.cat/hzmmux.zip

*reads critical philosophy once*
Everything used to be good in music. It's a subjective medium and purely human construct. Most of what you consider to be good music is just music you grew up with

>>24Cinema is a bit of a different animal, but a lot of works are ignored because they weren’t popular, hence cult cinema. If you want to see why people dismiss popular music, just listen to top 40. You’ll feel like a normalfag zombie.
>>24Pop music isn't popular music, it's music deliberately designed to be popular.
According to the Oricon charts ( https://www.oricon.co.jp/rank/js/d/2019-10-05/ ) these are the top singles as of the day i post this:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EZBeo_k1k-Ahttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9yCEYQeMqJchttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ptnYBctoexkI must admit, they do sound pretty samey. I'm sure I would be tired of this music as well if I needed to hear it all day on the radio.
Just listen to shit before the '90s and '00s. Popular music really was better back then. What happened? Personally, I think niggers. Fucking RnB and rap bullshit.
>you moranIt is very unlikely that >>30 is Irish, let alone one from the respectable Moran dynasty.
i'm not a fan of rap myself but what is your opinion on motown?
They say that every decade. Ask someone in the 2000s what they think about modern music and they'd probably respond with a joke about autotune.Also, both genres were at their height in the 90s and 2000s, and American music has had a very heavy black influence since the late 1800s you moran
I'm fascinated by obscure and forgotten TV music videos. Stuff like MTV's Party Zone and Chillout Zone, VIVA's Berlin House, and unknown channels from smaller and less known countries. The aforementioned are predominantly for 90s and 00s electronic music; obviously this extends to more than just electronic music from that particular time period - there are obscure music videos for rock, hip-hop, metal, 80's EBM, New Beat, Industrial, even big label pop acts that flopped and were swept away by the winds of time; but electronic music happens to be my interest and it seems to be the richest and most well documented of all. What's more, it's a great method to discover obscure and forgotten acts that might've slipped past RYM and Discogs lists and radars.Here are some youtube channels that upload obscure-ish music videos (predominantly of the electronic kind)https://www.youtube.com/user/ambistoma1/videoshttps://www.youtube.com/user/poorsofreign/videoshttps://www.youtube.com/channel/UCUUT3oVa1962KAEUaQFZssA/videoshttps://www.youtube.com/user/TMF90Dance/videosGeneral vintage music videoshttps://www.youtube.com/user/exclusivevids1000/videosChinese channels that put up eurodance and europop videos sometimes contain forgotten and unknown stuff amongst their uploadshttps://www.youtube.com/user/XiaoAn2012/videosLabels like SKINT and 4AD occasionally put up videos by their artists on their youtube channels.Below I'll post some selected cuts.
Can't seem to find neither the track nor the artist on Discogs, RYM or musicbrainz. They don't seem to exist beyond this music video.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S50Ho8R8bBg

The current wave of hip hop is actually really good in a lot of ways. Obviously, as a popular trend, a lot of shit made under it will be trash, but on the whole its great. Rappers are using interesting new flows, theres lots of experimentation with instrumentals, and overall the amount of aesthetics hip hop can convey has been expanded greatly. The great emphasis on style and attitude is an important part of this. I appreciate meaningful lyrical hip hop, but music doesnt need explicitly meaningful lyrics to be meaningful, and only being able to convey ideas by expressing them directly in clever verse limits what can be expressed. If you want to say 'FUCK THE WORLD' in music, a song that conveys it through tone and aesthetics will do it better than a long, intricate poem that expresses why you want to say that. Thats why hip-hop is now replacing rock as the popular genre other than pop, its doing what rock has done in the past better than rock is doing it right now.(not to say that I dont like rock or think hip-hop is necessarily better)
Whenever I see opinions about music like this considering how influential it is, I am reassured the reactionaries are doomed.
glad to see someone else saying this, i've been saying this for years now. the soundcloud rap scene, regardless of your opinions on the quality of the music, is the most creative 'scene' in the arts right now. bunch of people going "fuck the industry, fuck expectations, i'm gonna make what i want" is badass as fuck, and is why a lot of it is super raw and visceral.
I made some very short audible jokes, not very good, but I made them, and they should go somewhere. It's like soundcloud except not even a whole song.Please share your own.
i don't get the jokes
Sometimes when I like a song very much I make both L/R channels mono and invert one of them, that way the center signal gets cancelled and you can listen to the many details you never though of clearly.Also, speeding up the song about 2.5 semitones gives the effect of "listening to it for the first time again". It doesn't last for too long though. You should try it.
>>14I don't know about you but since I have perfect pitch speeding up (not just changing the tempo but the whole sample rate, otherwise that'd be stupid) lets me hear the song in a new light.I've spoken with other musicians and they feel the same thing I do.
>>15Perfect pitch is overrated. Only relative pitch is useful in music theory, especially when you work with quarter tones.
>>15I also like to slow music down sometimes (where the pitch lowers)
I can still post images on /mu/?
Pitching a record up/down by about 6% on a turntable roughy moves its key up/down by 1 (one) semi-tone.
Has /mu/ made any music? Share it here!Will bump with more if anyone is interested.
I made this.https://soundcloud.com/user-824619748/that-was-now-this-is-later
