Moon Safari's "Lover's End Part III: Skellefteå Serenade." Uplifting instrumentation with a slightly sadder story. Moon Safari's lyrics tend to be about failure, but the major key and upbeat music in general throw it in an optimistic light.

The endless rain might take a pause, when there’s a reason and a course
On open waters I set sail, to learn where others failed...

I discovered that just round the bend lies the meaning of success, now this heart can finally rest

I went to a classical concert today!

It was a solo piano performance at a library in another town.

He played Bach, Chopin and Gerschwin. It was wonderful. He switched from soft gentle playing to intense, colorful playing so well.

I really hate that people say classical is "boring" or can't be exciting. The energy of the performance I saw at times invigorated my whole body, it was an intense feeling of like I could FEEL the music, and it was the only thing I was feeling or thinking about, and I just had such a good time.

And not only that, but it was completely free, and they do these every month. So I'm definitely gonna start attending them regularly.

I was one of the youngest people there though lol, there were so many elderly people, I think the only person younger than me was this very small child.

Also, I had trouble actually seeing the pianist because of people in front of me, but that was alright.

are we seriously gonna have this debate? chamber music can be a form of classical music. it's not exclusive to classical but solo piano pieces can absolutely be classical.


>Classical music is art music produced or rooted in the traditions of Western music, including both liturgical (religious) and secular music. While a more precise term is also used to refer to the period from 1750 to 1820 (the Classical period), this article is about the broad span of time from before the 6th century AD to the present day, which includes the Classical period and various other periods.[1]

Since when was "tomboy" a reference to a girl's physique rather than how masculine their interests and/or style is? I get that small boobs and a chubby belly could be considered a masculine physique, but still, I don't know about you, but that's not the first thing that comes to my mind with that term.

I find it very engaging primarily in an atmospheric way. On the first album I linked, he sings in a horror movie villain-ish way, a very stylized form of creepiness and harshness that goes very well with the somewhat dissonant, rough, free-form guitar playing. Then you combine that with the really abstract, dark lyrics, and it all comes together for a really haunting, tense experience.

Think of it like the musical equivalent of watching a psychological horror movie basically. You're not supposed to think it's beautiful or pleasant, but you're supposed to be drawn in and on the edge of your seat and almost frightened. It's just a different kind of art.

The second album is similar but more conceptual and with less challenging vocals. It's like listening to a psychotic pervert drunkenly ramble to himself and even though that sounds dumb there's something so well-done about it, I've never heard another album that captures something like that, I don't know if it's ever really been attempted.

what's so bad about it?

Chewy {Element Of Fortitude}!MUSIC.FbVY 41991677


where to even begin...

It's sooo fucking cringeworthy. Eminem's rapping is either completely boring or outright bad, whether he's jumping on trendy trap beats, or doing more traditional flows, or trying to do his silly Shady/party shit. He's just LOST all the fire and brilliance of his earlier albums.

To compare, the wordplay and rhyme schemes on his early albums were consistently completely fucking brilliant. Like, there is a reason he got a reputation as one of the best technical rappers. Not to mention lyricists.

But his flow on this album is either completely tryhard or just weak. It's like he just lost some element of talent he used to have long ago and he's just chugging along like a train that ran out of fuel years ago but is stuck flying downhill and can't get off the tracks.

The lyricism on this album...it makes Hopsin sound like Nas. It's like he wants to be edgy and political but is afraid to be as edgy as he was on his earlier albums but he can't so it's this awkwardly tame edginess, if that makes any sense. And he's completely fucking pandering to generic liberal shit, like not to defend Trump or anything but he just fires off a ton of recycled talking points, shallow surface-level criticisms. When you compare these lyrics to the genuine insight of a rapper like Kendrick Lamar, they're just atrocious.

Then there's just the beats and the hooks which are garbage, the beats sound like FL Studio shit, and the hooks are AWFUL, it's all cheesy pop shit, fucking Alicia Keys, Pink, Ed Sheeran, like wtf? These kinds of pop stars are the people he used to rap about raping and chopping up and shit, like not that he should still do that but there's just some really absurd irony there.

He just needs to fucking stop, every time he releases a new album I think "well it can't be worse than the last one, right?" but no here I am again and this new one BTFO everything else in terms of shittiness.

I used to hate Relapse with a passion, but I have to at least admit that he still had some sense of lyrical and technical skill and creativity on that album, even if it was wasted on adolescent obscenity.

I just finished the new album and the only song I kinda like is the very last one because he actually does sound genuinely emotional and supercharged on it. But even the beat on that track is trash.

This is his worst album and that's really saying something because he hasn't released a good album since 2002.

The first one just sounds like someone just learning how to play the guitar trying too hard to sound creepy.

The second one literally sounds like a drunk man trying to fingerbang a guitar while rambling incoherently. I have literally seen homeless people on street corners give a better performance than this.

Also people need to stop trying to be edgy with sex in media. It just makes you look like 50 Shades of Grey, which was essentially what a virgin pretending to be an expert on BDSM sounds like.

Chewy {Element Of Fortitude}!MUSIC.FbVY 41991706

>trying too hard to sound creepy

eh, whether you find it creepy or not is kind of subjective I think. I think it's pretty creepy but not in a like "oo I'm terrified" way but more like a "there is something hauntingly thrilling about listening to this."

>just learning how to play the guitar

Well, he has had a VERY lengthy and prolific career, but I believe that first one was his debut in the 70s, so he may not have been good at guitar, but I don't think he was really trying to impress with guitar skills, he plays in a very jagged, almost disonant way, like I said free-form (possibly improvised, I'm not sure), it's more about a specific style/atmopshere for the album rather than technical ability with shit like complex solos or whatever.

>I have literally seen homeless people on street corners give a better performance than this.

well tell them to go record an album lol. like I said this guy has a career off of his music, he's obviously not very mainstream but people know and like him, he has a "cult following" so to speak. I would imagine that he makes money considering he was able to release like 50 albums, and that can't have been super cheap.

>people need to stop trying to be edgy with sex in media

I agree, but on the second album, the lyrics were not overtly sexual, I don't think there was actually any direct reference to sex, it was built on very vague pervyness rather than blatant vulgarity like 50 Shades. I think it's interesting. Like I said I've never heard anyone execute a lyrical concept like that, at least not in a "folk" album.

You should have more than the basics of an instrument down before pursuing a professional career out of playing it.

I've explained in detail why I enjoy the music but you two just seem fixated on his technical ability, so I'm not sure what else to say.

There's more to music than how good you are at your instrument. I would argue some of the best artists could barely play, because they had the creativity to create interesting music that didn't depend on instrumental virtuosity.


File: 1513249152479.jpg (24.12 KB, 600x423, incompetencedemotivator_grande…)

Eeeeh... that sounds like a cop-out really. The idea behind any sort of art is to get good at it. To make it into a craft and do something with it.

If you're not good at something, do something you are good at. If you're a creative type find a medium in which your creativity can actually produce something of merit. I consider myself creative but I have absolutely zero musical talent, so I don't do anything related to music, nor would I even attempt it.

>The idea behind any sort of art is to get good at it. To make it into a craft and do something with it.

A. You can be very technically skilled and be utter garbage at making music (see Dragonforce).

B. There is no such thing as good or bad in a subjective medium, simply things people like and don't like.

The idea that technical achievement is required for being a good musician is essentially a holdover for when the elite music schools held authority over what was good taste. It is useless now.

>The idea behind any sort of art is to get good at it. To make it into a craft and do something with it.

I 100% agree with this actually, but again the thing you are not understanding is that "being really good at guitar/other instrument" doesn't guarantee that you can use that instrument to make a really interesting/innovative/atmospheric etc. album.

as Shucc mentions >>41991913 there are lots of musicians/bands who are very skilled at their instruments but have absolutely no songwriting abilities and/or no interesting ideas/concepts for an album.

the skill it takes to perform well with your instrument and the skill it takes to write/compose an original song/album are two different things, that's what you gotta get.

Throughout history there have been plenty of famous musicians who have talent in one area but not another, like you've got pop artists who can sing great but they have a team of other artists to write all their songs for them.

I don't think Jandek was trying to be the next Hendrix or something, obviously. His style is much more folk-ish and folk has never been a genre that places a lot of emphasis on technical skill, not that I'm aware of at least.

and as Shucc also said there's the whole subjectivity, you say Jandek sounds like a random homeless guy, and that's fine I guess, but to me he honestly seems brilliant.

Chewy {Element Of Fortitude}!MUSIC.FbVY 41991936

Wrong. Music/art does not seek to achieve the same goal as what you are talking about.

When you hire someone to build a specific kind of door for you, you have an objective goal set in mind that you want them to succeed in. This is not the same as music. There is no form of objectivity in music that guarantees everyone will like it the same way you can objectively measure how well a door works.

These things are absolutely incomparable, and I have seen people make this comparison countless times, and they are wrong every time.

algol 41991940

>objectively measure how a door works
Can you objectively measure how well a door works? If a song is supposed to impart a feeling or "express yourself" then how is that not a goal which can succeed or fail? You sound like a man who's never built ateps out of beick if you think it's not the same as makimg music or painting.

Chewy {Element Of Fortitude}!MUSIC.FbVY 41991941

>If a song is supposed to impart a feeling or "express yourself" then how is that not a goal which can succeed or fail?

what people feel and how people express themselves are way more subjective than how well a door works.

the same song can make tons of different people feel completely different. Buckethead can play guitar extremely well and lots of people are wowed by it, but I find the majority of his output to be boring wank. You could argue Adele is a good singer but even though she has a pretty voice I think she is lifeless and bland, yet millions of people disagree with me and are reduced to tears by her songs.

Meanwhile, a door that works is just a door that works. Nobody says "oh man this door functions well but I don't feel like it's right for me." they just open the door and walk through it and thus the craftsman has objectively succeeded in his task.

do you see what I mean?

also, as far as expressing yourself goes, there are infinitely more ways to express yourself than there are to build a door correctly. sometimes you want to express ugly or negative feelings, so you don't want to write beautiful melodies or harmonies, instead you want dissonance and abstract textures and stuff.

I feel like you've never built something with your hands if you think this is at all true. People have definitely said those words and there are an infinite amount of ways to build a door. Way to recontextualize its surroundings, aesthetic concerns, tradeoffs to be made in its functional concerns, etc. If what your saying is true, then artisans wouldn't exist, door-making wouldn't be a profession and all doors would be the same design since we'd have found the perfect door by now.

>what people feel and how people express themselves are way more subjective than how well a door works.

I can feel that my shit smells like roses. I can also feel that my mellow sax is super aggressive and heavy. The only thing that matters is the listeners feel just like the homeowners feel about their door. Music succeeds if it imparts a feeling in the listener in the same way a gasket succeeds if it keeps fluids from leaking.

Take writing for example. No one gives a shit how the author felt when they wrote their fanfiction. If the vocabulary is poor, it's in constant active voice, the writing is breezy but imprecise; then it's likely bad writing. Writing can absolutely fail to impart a feeling it was meant to. Writing is a craft and can be criticized on observable merits.

So far your argument seems to be just repeating "Art as an act of creation is different from the act of creating anything else. It just is! It just is!" I'm detecting a little bit of the old high art/craftsman snobbery here.

Okay but I thought you were saying there was an objective way to succeed in crafting a door and thus if it is comparable to music as an art, then there is an objective way to succeed in composing a song/singing/writing lyrics etc.

If that's NOT the case, then what are you even arguing against here? Because I'm saying that music is subjective. I don't know much about craftsmanship but I thought that you were using it to try and make an (invalid) point about how there is an objective way to be good at guitar. So what exactly is your point?

>Music succeeds if it imparts a feeling in the listener

And I agree with this as well. Those Jandek albums, the whole source of this argument we are all having, impart an extremely strong feeling on me. Feelings of being creeped out, feeling tension and suspense and madness etc. So in my mind, Jandek succeeded with making those albums. But that is my subjective opinion. Obviously everyone else itt seems to disagree. But that's the crux of everything right there. That's what proves music is subjective. Because one person can think something sounds incredible when another person thinks it sounds like trash. And neither of them are "right", it's just an opinion.

also, as far as all the writing stuff goes--I think writing, or more specifically language itself, is more objective than music because language is very different than sound. Sound is much more abstract and complex than letters and words. It's much easier to point out objective flaws in a book than with a song. You can always point out, "hey, you spelled that word wrong" but there's not really any such thing as a wrong note when composing a song. People will try to tell you there is, but the reality is you can make a beautiful song composed of a really bizarre set of sounds, whereas with literature you HAVE to follow certain structures because it gets to a point where if you spell enough things wrong, it's objectively unreadable by anyone. But music never becomes unlistenable by anyone due to how its composed.

You seem to put a lot of emphasis on the creative process without being too concerned with the product produced from that process.

To me, at lest, it seems like trying to bake something from scratch. I can mix ingredients that have never been put together and slap it in the oven. It doesn't mean what comes out is going to taste good or is even edible. Trying new things is fine and innovation is good. However not everything that is new or creative ends up good. That's all I'm saying.

Chewy {Element Of Fortitude}!MUSIC.FbVY 41991966


...what? The creative process is important but in most cases I agree that the end result is in fact what matters most. Which is why I said that the Jandek albums make me feel strongly and I enjoy them--to me they are a great end result of a great creative process.

Food/cooking isn't really the same as music. I mean I don't know much about it but I think there are rules and results that would be objective. Literal taste in terms of food is different than taste in music/sound. Again it's another comparison that I don't think makes sense because the two things are just so radically different.

I also think music taste is very relative to what you are exposed to while you are growing up, and also how much you have listened to in general. Someone who has listened to hundreds of albums in dozens of genres is going to have a completely different perspective than someone who has just listened to the radio and TV music their entire life.

A lot of people have this preconception that all great music is supposed to be beautiful and complex when there is so much more to the art form than that, and "ugly" or "simple" sounds can often provide experiences just as good as the beautiful complex ones. It's all about perspective. And there's nothing wrong with enjoying both.

Like I don't get why it has to be this big war of "No you're wrong I'm right, if you like/don't like this you have SHIT TASTE AND DON'T UNDERSTAND ART!!" people get so competitive even when they barely know what they're talking about.

Except it really isn't. Think about it, the majority of people can tell, even without a background in music, when something sounds off or out of tune. It's an inherent thing that isn't just pure objectiveness. Some people may be more tolerant to it than others, sure. However, you can not sit there and say there is no such thing as 'bad' music because that is objectively false. If that were true musical theory wouldn't even exist and any random combination of sounds would be considered music when it most definitely isn't. Music has rules and while pushing those rules can yield interesting results, there is a point in which those rules become blatantly broken and once you do that you are no longer making music, you're just stringing sounds together at random.

>musical theory wouldn't even exist

it's called theory because it's not a proof, if it were a proof in the same sense a solution to a mathematic equation is a proof than there would be no point in continuing to make music because humans would have already figured out what the objectively best music is and that's all anyone would ever want to listen to because if it was objectively the best, everyone would love it and nobody would dispute its value or quality. But no such work of music exists, sadly, and that is precisely because it is subjective.

>there is a point in which those rules become blatantly broken and once you do that you are no longer making music, you're just stringing sounds together at random.

breaking the rules is actually very important in music. not all music follows theory, and randomness is actually used in the composition of a lot of music. this is a specific subject of music that there is a ton to talk about and I don't have the eloquence or knowledge to do it justice, but there is stuff like indeterminacy where randomness is a huge part of the composition process, or "prepared" instruments that introduce randomness to performance, or music based on mathematical equations and random generations, or music formed from improvisation based on abstract graphic notation that isn't even written in terms that are technically musical and can be interpreted in almost any way by the performer...like, your knowledge of this stuff really isn't that deep, there are plenty of people (myself included) who would argue that any sound or combination of sounds can be music, and there are even some people who believe that ALL sound IS music. There is extensive writing on these ideas and subjects (most of which I have not read yet, I am just aware of it).

Music theory is not a set of rules to decide what is and isn't music and it has changed a lot over time.

The thing is that there are things people in general understand to work when it comes to music. Like objectively if someone randomly plucks on a guitar without any sort of structure about 99% of people will say that isn't music.

A theory doesn't invalidate facts. It simply means that we have a lot of facts, just not ALL the facts. Gravity is still a theory because we know it works and we understand the mechanics of it, but we don't know EXACTLY what causes it to happen.

Something being a theory doesn't invalidate the facts we DO know about the theory. When it comes to musical composition, there are obviously things that work and things that don't. If that wasn't the case, absolutely NO musical structure would exist. No melodies, no rhythms, no timing. We know people can differentiate between what a rhythm is and what random noise is, however it's still a theory because we don't know exactly WHY people have the ability to do this, even though the majority clearly do.

Throwing all of that out the window by dismissing it as a theory is not practical.

>Think about it, the majority of people can tell, even without a background in music, when something sounds off or out of tune.
>However, you can not sit there and say there is no such thing as 'bad' music because that is objectively false. If that were true musical theory wouldn't even exist and any random combination of sounds would be considered music when it most definitely isn't. Music has rules and while pushing those rules can yield interesting results, there is a point in which those rules become blatantly broken and once you do that you are no longer making music, you're just stringing sounds together at random.
I don't even know where to start with this, you have neither the musical background, nor the knowledge to be making these claims. There is no inherent, objective standard of quality in music, like that's literally not how art works.

I guess the first thing to tackle would be
>the majority of people can tell... when something sounds off or out of tune.
This is laughably false. Not only does the untrained ear have difficulties sometimes even recognizing the intervalic relations between pitches (for example being able to hear the difference between a major third and a perfect fourth and correctly identify them) but your notion that people can go beyond that and understand when multiple notes being played together are out of tune (and be right a large percentage of the time) is beyond silly. Sure the human ear can distinguish between intervals roughly 5 cents away from each other, an interval much smaller than the ones you are likely to be talking about, however the layman usually can't accurately identify a detuning. For example people commonly mistake resonances within the harmonic series that clashes with notes to be out of tune. If you have a C Major triad across three voices, and say the voice playing the E of that chord has a particular build up in the 6th or 9th harmonic, it is not uncommon for the untrained ear to hear the chord as being out of tune, which it isn't. Further more without being told the average layman would have no concept that all of the music they listen to is out of tune (unless they are listening to something in just intonation or 56/200+Edo) because of our tempered system of tuning. Furthermore many styles of music built on the lineage of west African music (blues, R&B, earlier styles of rock and so on) are frequently played with chords that are demonstrably out of tune from a western perspective. Both the major third, and dominant seven in a pentatonic African tuning system will not only be slightly off our equally tempered system, but in the case of the major third, will also be off in a system of just intonation, and even pythagorean intonation. Chords played with these intervals are demonstrably out of tune by the western system you are no doubt applying here. This is also to say nothing of the microtonal intervals that would sound dissonant (or out of tune) to our western ears, but are commonplace in Indian, Arabic, Chinese, Japanese, and various other Asian cultures.

Your point about pushing the rules vs braking the rules is also equally laughable. Question: Are the works of Arnold Schoenberg, or Béla Bartók, objectively bad music because the harmony they employed would have been considered noise in the time of Bach? The way we hear, and relate, to music has been an obvious progression, and to assert that we will one day reach a brick wall that divides good and bad music is both a lofty claim, and unsubstantiated. Contrary to what some consider in academia the western ear is still becoming more and more accepting of dissonance and dense harmonic information. It wasn't that long before Bach that the music of Europe was still mostly monophonic, and it wan't that long after Beethoven that we invented 12 tone serialism. While the average layman may not listen to Stockhausen on a regular basis the modern ear is equipped to understand his music. This doesn't only relate to harmony, but complex rhythmic structures, as well as harmonic content in regards to individual voices. The rules about what are good arrangements of sounds, and how to produce those sounds are in constant flux. 100 years ago the guitar distortion from the 70's would have sounded like Merzbow does today, which is to say nothing of modern gain sounds that are much richer in harmonic information. This doubly applies to modern subtractive synthesis (or FM synthesis for that matter) as 100 years ago the sound of a Moog Model D would have been considered ugly, or harsh. These things are always in flux, and generally move in the direction more complexity, and more adventurous sounds. You literally only need to look back 50 years to the music of the 60's to see just how fast this process is.

From all of the other posts you make in music threads your argument boils down to: I don't like X because it sounds bad to me/is too harsh/is too experimental therefor this music is obviously objectively bad. This makes you look dumb, don't do this.


File: 1513281058411.png (843.02 KB, 1280x720, Trixie_rolls_her_eyes_at_Starl…)

You are taking this waaaaaaaay beyond the context of what I was talking about. Let me give you a basic example.


This is considered funny because 99% of people listening to this can tell, "Okay this is a really shitty rendition." and the reason they can tell that is because they can actually tell the difference between this and what it's supposed to sound like. In fact, even if you DON'T know what the Jurassic Park theme sounds like, if you hear this, 99% of people will go, "That sounds really bad." This is not subjective at that point. There is OBVIOUSLY something about this that makes it register as 'bad' to the mass majority, which is why this joke translates to most people.

If music were 100% subjective, most music would end up sounding like this because people would be completely unable to recognize the difference between this and the original composition.

Elicoor13 41992840

i fucking love sabbath so much, and this riff is just so good. like...sure ozzy sucks as a vocalist, but he's an amazing songwriter(kinda).
i thought their name change was a sign they were no longer punk. seriously, it...if you were honestly offended by their name, why? the name wasn't pro-andrew jackson, it kinda...emphasized that he was a monster. the people who got butthurt over it obviously: a.) don't know shit about punk and b.) have no actual clue about american history.

literally nothing was offensive, unless you were stupid enough to think that the name was somehow pro-andrew jackson. yes, i actually felt betrayed by that and their new "let's be a worse mountain goats" direction, they were an interesting and vital part of folk punk. their name change kinda killed a lot of the momentum of the folk punk movement, with ramshackle glory's disbanding and pat's retirement being the final nails in the coffin.

yes i'm actually a little salty still, i was deep into folk punk, and seeing andrew jackson jihad basically shit all over the scene was a bit of a betrayal. it was kinda expected that they'd sell out, but they sold out in the most hard to swallow way. their name change wasn't some acknowledging of the wrongs of history, it was defanging a really clever jab at united states history, and them making it out like it was a correct move upsets me. it...sure the name could have been offensive, but...punk is kinda about offending in order to skew society.

it was especially awful because the people who called the name offensive obviously never actually listened to their older work, they were just jumping on a band in the wake of the whole viet cong name change. i'm not about to trash "le ess jay double-jews" because that's some entry level /mu/ shit, but andrew jackson jihad were kinda spineless in that they didn't even try to explain why their name wasn't offensive.

they said that having "Jihad" in their name was "offensive to Muslims" or something like that...

and then they release an album called The Bible 2.

so yeah I don't like to blame SJWs but that's a pretty clear example of a band being hypocritical about which people they choose to disrespect.

although I will say, The Bible 2 is actually a pretty underrated album, there are some really powerful songs on it.

listen to The Bible 2 and then listen to Christmas Island again after a while, I was disappointed with it at first two but my friend convinced me to give it another chance a few months later and I actually really like it now, it's like a strong 7 light 8, it has some of their best songs honestly

Elicoor13 41993529

gud shit right here tbh.
...have you listened to can't maintain?

i feel like you wouldn't say that if you had. like...that is their best album, it has such gems as truckers are the blood, love in a time of human papilloma virus, sense;sensibility, who are you, and love will fuck us apart. i will give it a chance tho, i owe it to them to give it a fair shot.

i've heard the bible 2 has some good songs, but who are you is...emotionally searing and that kinda extends to the rest of can't maintain. part of why christmas island fell flat is that it felt like they were trying to ape the mountain goats, and in doing so they shed a lot of what made their music emotionally satisfying. their old music was so raw as to be uncomfortable. christmas island lacked that feeling on a first listen, so i kinda stopped listening.

this post came off being more snobby and aggressive than i wanted. i'm sorry chewy.

i keep getting hooked on nasheeds. i love the vocal work, there's some really amazing vocal harmonies that really don't pop up other places. mostly because they don't subscribe to a sect of a religion that says instruments are not allowed. also the lyrics are...odious to say the least.

i feel really guilty liking them tho, especially since the people making this music would probably want to do awful things to most of my friends and loved ones.

^^^this is a Norwegian band recommended to me by someone IRL who is going to see one of their very rare and intense live performances soon

it reminds me a lot of the dronier, more ritualistic songs on Swans' albums from this decade, particularly The Seer and The Glowing Man, although they never reach the same aggressiveness or sheer massiveness of Swans.

speaking of Swans, I relistened to their "final" live album Deliquescence (which I own the limited CD of btw) and it blew my mind, I originally would have rated it like a strong 6 but now it's a strong 9 to me, I had it blasting in my headphones at 70% volume to the point where it almost hurt but I LOVED it, something about the drumming in Swans' music and also the way they layer their instruments, and Gira's borderline-demonic droning singing and wailing, his powerful voice even at the age of 63 is just incredible to me, not to mention how him and the various people who have been in Swans have gone through so many interesting style changes throughout their career since the 80s and they've still got it, the band is still releasing masterpiece after masterpiece.

been stressed and it has actually really mellowed me out, or at least brought me down from some extreme anger. healing power of music is real.

this is absolutely bonkers

>3 Compositions (EEMHM) 2011 features the first studio recordings of Braxton’s Echo Echo Mirror House Music—the latest conceptual innovation in Braxton’s five-decade career. With his Ghost Trance Music, Braxton created a framework for his musicians to freely explore his entire compositional output in each concert; with his Diamond Curtain Wall music, he brought his own interactive electronics into his improvisational palette. Now with Echo Echo Mirror House Music, Anthony Braxton brings these ideas to the next level. In this ensemble of longtime collaborators, all the musicians wield iPods in addition to their instruments, while navigating scores that combine cartography and evocative graphic notation, creating a musical tapestry combining live performance and sampled sound from Braxton’s extensive recorded discography.

> it features several musicians (in practice, 7-14) armed with their instruments and iPods. The iPods contain recordings from Braxton’s extensive back catalog. At given points in a piece, the musicians can choose whether to play or to provide one of these historical recordings instead. The result is an information-dense listening experience, often with at least 3-4 distinct melodies occurring simultaneously.

>ike his other music systems, EEMHM involves conducted improvisation and non-traditional notation. On these pieces, the latter consist of actual maps of airports, subway systems, highways, and so on. The players are encouraged to improvise “travel” through these virtual landscapes. The outcome is something reminiscent of a journey through a sound installation, where you can simultaneously hear different pieces of music played at varying intensities from different speakers.

this is a genre called "harsh noise wall"

it's literally meant to be a "wall" of harsh noise, so it's like even harsher harsh noise because most harsh noise at least has rhythmic qualities but harsh noise wall is literally nothing but extreme texture with very little dynamics.

at first I was like "c'mon this can't possibly take any effort" but then I did some googling and read some stuff about how its made and it's actually pretty interesting.

I guess with harsh noise wall, the artists in the genre, instead of placing importance on the composition, place much more importance on creating the sounds for the composition. so they build these massive sounds and textures and then just drag them out and don't really change or evolve them much, but it's just meant to be this intense, repetitive, meditative style of music.

the "song" I linked is from a five-part album that is nearly five hours long and I have only listened to one part, but like, I love it.

so I just got back from Newbury Comics, which is in the huge fucking mall near where I live. I actually did the driving there but my mom freaked out on me because I went too fast on a certain road and completely fucked up a turn so I got irritated and said she should drive home.

HOWEVER, my dad had gotten me a $50 gift card for that store and as soon as we found it in the mall I was like "awww sheeeeeiiiit!!" because there was SO MUCH great stuff there, I got so excited and just looked at everything, the place was huge and had records CDs, cassettes, t-shirts, comics, manga, a small amount of "regular" books (mostly garbage like that "Subtle Art Of Not Giving A F*ck" that seems to be everywhere), hoodies, figurines etc.

I legit spent like half an hour trying to figure out what I wanted. they had a Wu-Tang Clan hoodie that was awesome but would have used up the whole gift card so I declined. they had NASA t-shirts which made me think of the Earth-chan meme. they had some band shirts I would have worn but none of them were in my size which was a bummer. they had fucking J Dilla and Eminem cassettes which I didn't even know existed.

they had TONS of albums I love, and the prices weren't too unreasonable--ranged from just 16 bucks to close to 30 for the more "valuable" stuff, the new albums and the double albums and stuff.

I ended up getting three records: Swans - Filth, Aphex Twin - Richard D James Album, and the ultimate /mu/ meme album--you know the one, a legit 10/10.

I'm pretty happy with that. Gotta make sure I can get my record player set back up properly now that the christmas tree has been taken down.

I love too many Queen songs to even narrow it down, but both of those are wonderful.

GOFLB is one of the few I've mostly memorized and can sing on-key, to boot.

!!Sweetie Bot 42000139

For a long time, they were my favorite band. Freedie Mercury is without peer.

I legit think it's actually immoral to pay money for the older Quake/Doom games now rather than pirating them. The people who actually made those games don't get a cent of that money, instead it goes to the opportunistic greedy porkies who "acquired" the rights.

Nope. Should I?

`Ula`ula!!xjLzExZmVj 42000155

God damn, I love that song!

!!Sweetie Bot 42000156

Definitely. The full title is "Free Culture: How big media uses technology and the law to lock down culture and control creativity". It's licensed under the CC BY-NC license, so you can probably (legally) download it online for free, or you can get a book. I got one for Christmas.

Starshine!Laura/wmXM 42000157

That definitely sounds like something I'd read. Any other cyberpunk manifestos to recommend?

!!Sweetie Bot 42000159

Oh, and the Creative Commons license (BY-NC is an example of one variant) was created by Lawrence Lessig, the author of the book.

I also got Little Brother for Christmas. From the Amazon description and the back of the book
"Marcus, a.k.a "w1n5t0n," is only seventeen years old, but he figures he already knows how the system works–and how to work the system. Smart, fast, and wise to the ways of the networked world, he has no trouble outwitting his high school's intrusive but clumsy surveillance systems.
But his whole world changes when he and his friends find themselves caught in the aftermath of a major terrorist attack on San Francisco. In the wrong place at the wrong time, Marcus and his crew are apprehended by the Department of Homeland Security and whisked away to a secret prison where they're mercilessly interrogated for days.
When the DHS finally releases them, Marcus discovers that his city has become a police state where every citizen is treated like a potential terrorist. He knows that no one will believe his story, which leaves him only one option: to take down the DHS himself."

i kinda grew out of my breakcore/raggacore phase, but bong ra will always hold a special place in my heart.

this song is a kinda...he did a remix of the burning spear song jah kingdom(a fantasic song btw) and then used that as a sample for another version of the song with new vocals done by a session singer(a common trope in dub reggae and later derivatives like jungle, drum and bass, grime and dubstepnot brostep, reeeeee) and...i can't help but love how faithful it is to the traditions of the genre. it's also got a really cool break freakout that just throws fantastic walls of acrobatic drum patterns and noise at you that's...it's a sensory overload.

i don't know if i've made it clear how much i love reggae, but i am a massive nerd for reggae.
i won't deny marilyn manson isn't trashy ass music tho.

over the course of the last few months I have been listening to Ryuichi Sakamoto's discography mostly chronologically. for now I'm just doing solo studio albums--no YMO, live, or film score stuff yet.

almost all of them have been great. there's just something so...idk...sensitive about his music, something unique that flows through all the different styles he does. I just read several recent interviews with him and he seems so nice and smart and passionate about art and creativity and nature and he just seems like such a sweet, friendly man.

he was pretty sexy when he was young, and he aged very gracefully into a handsome elderly man. he's enormously talented too, he's been playing piano since he was like ten, he also plays synths, he composes both "regularly" and electronically, he even starred alongside David Bowie in a movie. he has gone through such a broad range of styles that is so impressive to me.

there's just something so touching to me about him and his music, he's becoming a favorite honestly.

I can’t find any way
I can’t find any way to relax
I can’t do anything
I can’t do anything of impact
I emptied out my brain
In hopes that I would have some success
Finding some clarity
But I just made a mess
What’s the point of having a voice?
What’s the point of having a voice
When it gets stuck inside your throat?

I’ll ramble incessantly
On pointless rattlings in my head
First person shooter games
Guitar tones, ELO arrangements
The differences in an MP3
And a vinyl record that you can hear!
But when it means something

Well, small talk, OBVIOUSLY
But nothing beyond barely catching up
I have lots of things to say
But they’re gonna sound dumb dumb dumb

But I’m just an idiot

So where can you go when the troubles inside you
Make your limbs feel like they’re covered in lead?
How can you solve all the problems around you
When you can’t even solve the ones in your head?
I need you right now
I need you right now
Before I feel totally dead

Shriek into the toxic well

‘cause you’re addicted to a quiet source of company
Every time you told ‘em you were busy
‘cause you’d rather go to sleep

9 times out of 10 I’ll be stoned on the subway
Reading backlit directives of what I should do
Dodging eye contact with anyone who looks my way
9 times out of 10 I’ll be thinking of you

Every little victory don’t matter
If nobody seems to care
Winning ten bucks on a scratch-off lotto ticket
The keys you thought disappeared
Every vacant moment you’ve exhausted all the options
That you thought could fill the hole
Every star you’re wishing on
Just hoping for a little self-control
Tired of feeling selfish
Tired of feeling restless
Tired of feeling down

They can kick us in the knees
They can push us in the trees again
They can roll their eyes
They can criticize, oh yeah

They can hang us out to dry
They can profit from their lies again
They can shake our souls
They can send us home, oh yeah

We’re not gonna let them win, oh no
We’re not gonna let them win, oh no

They can make us feel afraid
And try to turn it into hate, oh yeah
They can steal our slice
For the hundredth time
Judge us when we cry
And never empathize
With anyone but themselves

We’re not gonna let them win, oh no
We’re not gonna let them win, oh no

They’re not gonna win
They’re not gonna win

food for thought: is stuff like white noise and brown noise "music"? not noise as in the actual genre noise but this form of literal noise people just put on for sleep or studying rather than for entertainment or artistic purposes.

personally I kind of ascribe to the idea that virtually any sound can be viewed as music in certain aspects, so I feel like the answer is yes. I mean this is hella relaxing: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FcWgjCDPiP4 and many forms of music are made with the intent of inducing relaxation in the listener.

and even though this kind of noise is technically "non-musical" it still has to be sonically composed as other kinds of electronic music would be.

I would say actual perfect white noise may not technically be music, because music needs variation of some kind. Longplayer, for example - a track designed to last a thousand years - was basically designed to have the minimum amount of variation needed to hold up to these expectations. It's a great ambient piece I'd recommend streaming, and a good example of how low you can go.


But that's not necessarily a definitive judgement, as definitions of nebulous things like music change all the time, and those that exist are always questionable or not even widely accepted.

The intro felt a bit out of tune for me and it didn't really have a pop vibe to me at all. It sounded like a Jazz-style R&B song.

There is literally nothing pop about this at all.

When I think 'Pop' the things that come to mind are things like this:

I mean that's great and stuff. It just doesn't sound that good to me. If you like it though, that's fine.

When I say 'experimental', I mean in the way that when she sings she quickly moves from high to low notes constantly and from at least my perspective, almost seemingly at random. I can't really follow along with the melody because it just seems completely chaotic.

That's just how it came across to me. Then again I hardly ever listen to this style of music, so maybe that's just how this style works.

I thought I'd never enjoy metal. But I've been listening to it all day today and yesterday and genuinely enjoying it.

Getting into a whole new genre of music is always awesome. I remember when it first happened with classical and jazz a couple years ago.

You really never know what you'll end up liking that for a long time you think you never possibly could. I think sometimes it just takes time and giving things repeated chances.

literally every morning before work. the lyrics are actually super relatable to me, also it's one of the most hot-blooded shounen things i've ever heard. it's literally called ultimate battle for heaven's sake.

Anonymous 42023922

It's so sad that Kate and Peter didn't do so much more music together. Kate is credited on Peter's Games Without Frontiers and No Self Control as well as the most famous duet Peter did. She was his spiritual and performance student in so many ways.


Got this off of an internet radio stream this morning and manged to find it on YT as well.

A coward dies a thousand deaths
A soldier dies but once
They say pussy and paper is poetry power and pistols
Plotting on murdering motherfuckers 'fore they get you
Picturing pitiful punk niggas copping pleas
Puffin weed as I position myself to clock G's
My enemies scatter in suicidal situations
Never to witness the wicked shit that they was facing
Pockets is packed with presidents, pursue your riches
Evading the player hating tricks, while hitting switches
Bitches is bad-mouth, cause brawling motherfuckers is bold
But y'all some hoes, the game should be sewed
I'm sick of psychotic society somebody save me
Addicted to drama so even mama couldn't raise me
Even the preacher and all my teachers couldn't reach me
I run in the streets and puffin weed wit my peeps
I'm ducking the cop, I hit the weed as I'm clutching my glock
Niggas is hot when I hit the block, what if I die tonight
If I die tonight
If I die tonight
If I die tonight
Tonight's the night I get in some shit
Polishing pistols prepare for battle pass the pump
When I get to popping niggas is dropping then they done
Calling the coroner come collect the fucking corpse
He got it by killer, preoccupied with being boss
Revenge is the method, whenever stepping keep a weapon close
Adversaries are overdosed over deadly notes
Jealous niggas and broke bitches equal packed jails
Hit the block and fill your pockets making crack sales
Picture perfection pursuing paper with a passion
Visions of prisons for all the pussies that I blasted
Running with criminals individuals with no remorse
Try to stop me my pistol posse's using deadly force
In my brain all I can think about is fame
The police know my name, a different game, ain't a thing changed
I'm seeing cemetery photos of my peers
Conversatin' like they still here, if I die tonight
If I die tonight
If I die tonight
If I die tonight
Tonight's the night I get in some shit
Pussy and paper is poetry power and pistols
Plotting on murdering motherfuckers 'fore they get you
Pray to the heavens three-fifty-sevens to the sky
And I hope I'm forgiven for Thug Living when I die
I wonder if heaven got a ghetto for Thug niggas
A stress free life and a spot for drug dealers
Pissing while practicing how to pimp and be a player
Overdose of a dick, while drinking liquor when I lay her
Pistol whipping these simps, for being petrified and lame
Disrespecting the game, praying for punishment and pain
Going insane, never die, live eternal, who shall I fear?
Don't shed a tear for me nigga I ain't happy here
I hope they bury me and send me to my rest
Headlines reading murdered to death, my last breath
Take a look picture a crook on his last stand
Motherfuckers don't understand, if I die tonight

I feel like I've heard a cover of this that was much darker and I'm wondering who did it now...

Come along with me
To a town beside the sea
We can wander through the forest
And do so as we please.

Come along with me
To a cliff under a tree.
Where we'll gaze upon the water
As an everlasting dream

All of my affections
I'll give them all to you
Maybe by next summer
We won't have changed our tune

'Cause we'll want to be
In this town beside the sea
Making up new numbers
And living so merrily

All of my affections
Give them all to you
I'll be here for you always
And always be for you

Come along with me
To a town beside the sea
We can wander through the forest
And do so as we please

Living so merrily

Nice song from a movie that is not bad.

Ika 42026466

I have been listening to AoT's season 2 soundtrack, it's pretty fucking good


The NitW's soundtrack is really good too, probably the comfiest one I have ever heard.

I saw the wolf, the fox and the hare
I saw the wolf and the fox dancing
All three circled around the tree
I saw the wolf, the fox and the hare
All three circled around the tree
Circled the sprouting bush

Here the whole year over is filled with work
To earn a few pennies
And the whole month I didn't see anything
When I saw the wolf, the fox and the hare
There is nothing left for us any more
I saw the hare, the fox and the wolf

To be honest, I've never listened to Death Grips. I suppose I am out of touch.
