Re: What is IDM today?

I remember when I had a dj friend try to sell me on IDM in the late 90s early 2000s. I was like fuck this, this is terrible. We spend the rest of the weekend listening to Booty House.

Face down ass up
Face down ass up
Face down ass up
Face down ass up
Thats the way we like to fuck!

Muthafuckas!

Also I just rubbed my eye and I had antifreeze on my finger, I hope I don't go blind.

Re: What is IDM today?

To sum up the following if you dont want to read the crap

Quote:
"without IDM Forum I would probably still be wasting away my time, money and self without a true channel to create sound."

IDM Forum wise it's the only one bar one other (since closed as the guy hosting unfortunately passed on), that I've found in near on 20 years where people actually talk. It's interesting seeing so many different members in different little corners of the forum, are we all one for our comfort zones. Hobbied away in our studios where IDM is our lifeline or in my case escapism and outlet for some head twisting music production Personally I see IDM more over electronic music, not exclusively dance. But again it's where you channel yourself as a member I guess.

As far as IDM music scene goes...fuck knows. Last club I went to was over 10 years ago. Started on the music (club) scene 20 years before that...so I've had the great experiences of non commercial raves, underground parties, clubbing with doves, buddhas and pretty much everything else before all the clone chemical derivatives started showing up. Today there's too much loudness...in the sense of how much pressure can be asserted on the eardrums rather than clear loud volume!

Im always impressed and enthusiastic how technology has changed and the techniques involved.
Trying to make music on a very limited budget, little know how (internet wasn't general populus then), relying on magazines, word or mouth and your music store to (mis-)guide you to the next essential bit of gear.

I love the overkill of what an average bod can do on a limited budget with a decent PC, soundcard, software and knowledge. Fek Im still learning 25 years on, whilst I should imagine many wonder why I bother (see soundcloud link for my efforts), I love the experience of making my own music. Maybe Im just narcisitc.

However, this forum has pushed me and (if you know me), Im pretty heavy in the Beat Battle forums and have tried a few subs on the IDM contests etc. Since falling into the IDM forums I can say I've produced more tracks of a higher standard (all be that relatively low), in the last several years of being a member here than I have in the last 25.

Re: What is IDM today?

*unzips pants* is this circle jerk going clockwise or counter clockwise (cockwise?)?


But srsly folks. I've said this before, but to me IDM is just a very specific genre that spanned late 90's to early 2000's and it's not really being made anymore. There are a very few people making, but not many.

As a jazz musician I see parallels. Like, there are very distinct periods that occurred throughout the development of jazz. So nowadays, you have people who are trying to recreate those snapshots in the history of jazz. That's very unappealing to me. Sure I will incorporate elements of them into my stuff (inadvertently mostly), but I got into this game to create things.

You see this in all genres. People trying to recapture "the good ol days". There's nothing wrong with that I supposed but it doesn't do much for me. I'd rather hear something that is rough sounding but has an element of individuality rather than the most polished "americana" song every performed. But that's just personal preference I suppose.


So yea, IDM is in the past for me, I don't worry about what to call my music. But I reckon it does kind of represent an state of mind that is pretty cool, as others are hinting at.
