Dubstep... Proven by science

I've been doing some experiments lately for my final year dissertation. Upon analysing the results of one of the tests and writing the report, I came up with this:

Code:
Content visible to registered users only.
When I started writing about the force that drops, I thought: "But hey, this sounds familiar, it's like dubstep" and I started laughing and when I got myself I almost wrote the rest of the paragraph about buildups and breakdowns...

Just goes to show, music is everywhere, even the weirdest of genres...

I don't consider Dubstep to be "weird" by any stretch of the imagination.

Nah, I don't say it about dubstep, just in general... I like dubstep as well, but those I hear on public radio doesn't do it for me...

Re: Dubstep... Proven by science

It's bullshit pal, Beethoven did the same many years ago, and so did a myriad of composers before him.

In short.........

Where's the DROP?

Re: Dubstep... Proven by science

Well, it is my understanding that a lot of IDM was designed to incorporate these kinds of complex mathematics and other such oddities of science, or theories translated into musical theory. I had always simply assumed that was part of the "IDM philosophy" and the more I look into simple equations and especially some complex patterns/sequencing algorithms the more I hear it in electronic music.

You almost made me puke in my mouth. Had about a all the subjects of the bsc Math courses in second year, that stuff killed me, and we're doing it again this semester... Maybe it would be better now that we're actually going to apply that horrible stuff in practice..

Other related variables found in graph:

Deflection = speed at which dubstepper defends genre.
Sample 1, 2, 3 = the choice of generic sample used (by artist).

Yea, to me, music is emotion and feeling, mona lisa can stuff the golden ratio where a king size dildo belongs. Things can easily become to artsy before you know it. In the end..

I would actually like to think that this started Classical music. I admire the composers of those days much more than today's mainstream artists. They just heard and saw things differently. I'm sure if you gave a Victorian or Medieval scientist an instrument he would do amazing stuff, likewise if you'd give a composer some time and a science textbook...

Robbie Williams - Feel - YouTube

Am I kidding? Who the fuck knows rite... rite...
Lol yeah, You're rite, left... When it comes to music/any other art, I don't care about the science and math behind the composition of it, nor do I care about some abstract shit meaning the author supposedly tries to convey like we learn in literature. If it's nice, it's nice... Full stop.

Plus,I like the song you posted..

Replace "IDM" with Early Computer Music, and you're spot-on correct. Many IDM artists do have an interest in mathematics, however, partially due to IDM being very do-it-yourself genre. DIY with computers tends to involve a lot of code / programming, or at the very least modular environments. These assume you have pretty good basic understanding of mathematics.

Autechre, definitely "mathematical". Four Tet? Not so much.

The more you look into mathematics, the more you see and hear it in everything.

So, something like, 11th century? No. Highly unlikely. Quite likely an impact on Renaissance era music, however.

The more you look into anything, the more you see it everything. Especially if you don't grasp that it's a universal standard for anything. Understand, Freud?

That makes a lot sense, though I don't like much of Freud's theories... I suppose when your mind is pre-occupied with some subject at a certain time that it perceives that thing elsewhere in your doings. It's like seeing what you wan't to see, not what's actually there...

Freud didn't see it, are you calling him stupid or huh? I invented my own math system, It belongs in another dimension, meaning that 2+2 = 3.. Because you know, it's just a convention, a standard that makes the houses resist the weather, but in reality, everything equals infinity.. But how would a desert monkey know who only found his way on two legs to oppose predators. Like a goddamn..

Freud had issues, he saw a lot of thing that was dearer to him than many others. But at least he was controversial.
