Electronic music isnít real music...

how we all tire of this stupid clichee. In fact, we all know that the same underlying music theory apply. When confronted with the statement, show the offending party this:

Re: Electronic music isnít real music...

He chose some shitty EDM tracks for that, though. I was hoping he was going to do aphex twin or something crazy.

The video still goes from technically proficient down to pop mush, so if anything this is a good demonstration of music going downhill overall

Not sure I agree with that. But to see Tchaikovsky and Eiffel 65 featured in the same video is rather peculiar.

I donít know, if someone heard the video with out the societal and historical background they wouldnít be able to differentiate the styles or say which is better.

Re: Electronic music isnít real music...

It's comparing apples and oranges really. Lets face it you won't go to a rave to listen to Bach, the same as you wouldn't go to a concert hall to sit and listen to Avicci. I'm not defending either, as I hate that EDM tag and really have little interest in the music that goes with it. I look forward to the day I see Iron Maiden walk out on stage in tuxes and sit at pianos, not.

Re: Electronic music isnít real music...

There's only 12 notes, unless you're microtuning, and it's the same 12 whether you're Beethoven or the Avicii. That said, there is a difference in technical proficiency, and there's something to be said for historical significance too. It could be argued that Beethoven scared subsequent musicians off of the symphony format he was so damn good, and if I can even comprehend what he did from a musical standpoint (or stay awake through it, for starters), I'd feel accomplished as a musician. Of course, there are electronic artists you can say the same about (Aphex Twin, I'm sure, is on many people's short list). It's a matter of history, I suppose, which isn't on our side in all regards yet, but will be in time. I'd say give it 30 years tops and people won't be able to deny that electronic music is music as much as anything.

Re: Electronic music isnít real music...

I think it's worth remembering that Beethoven's music received mixed reviews when it was first published and performed.

Newspapers didn't exactly have concert-reviews as we know them today, but if you dig into preserved correspondences from the time, it becomes clear that some considered his symphonies "absurd and discordant". Especially the unconventional orchestrations seems to have upset people at first, although many changed their minds about it later.

"Real symphonies" at the time generally meant "in the style of Haydn" btw.

Re: Electronic music isnít real music...

I sometimes wonder what someone like Mozart would have done with the tools we have today.
In a way, composers were limited by the sounds contemporary instruments could generate. Mozart was one of the few (I may be wrong here) to embrace this and composed for the glass armonica. With no confines to the sort of sound one can produce, it makes you wonder.

Maybe we have lost the sophistication of finely layered motifs that evolve as they get picked up by sections of an orchestra and evolve, but we have also gained a wider repertoire. While not everyoneís cup of tea, I would argue that Alva Noto, Ryoji Ikeda, or Pan Sonic do have a wholistic artistic vision. Id love to go to visit one of Ryoji Ikedaís installations, when I get a chance. 4 to the floor isnít where things should necessarily be judged.

Iím also thinking about Pete Namlook, Steve Reich, and Robert Rich. Brian Eno. Apollo is sonically a masterpiece that evokes the very pictures we all have seen of the Apollo moon landing. As always, great artists connect on an emotional level. And as much as we still listen to Stairway to Heaven, there are similarly iconic pieces in electronic music.

Are people still even making this argument? That electronic music isn’t real music? I mean besides rock god devotees working at Guitar Center?

Also, you're not a real person if you're on the internet.

You're not human if you eat GMO's.

You don't have real feet cuz you wear shoes.

Your dick sucks cuz it has a condum.

Your wife is as fake as her tits.
