Why music is getting boring?

Does anyone think that music might be getting weird because a lot of producers know nothing about composition or harmony..?!

No because you aren't open minded enough.

:p

Seriously though I don't know where you get your source of music but there are tons of sounds you can enjoy out there.

I think that is one reason there is a ton of mediocre music.

Re: Why music is getting boring?

Who has decided music is getting weird? I was under the understanding that it was dissolving into terrible sameness. Maybe youre just discovering more 'experimental' music now. Maybe youre asking a lot of crap questions.

Because people are getting boring

Not to say there aren't a golden few who strive to create new.

Maybe I should have worded different. Because I am referring to the boredom factor or 'sameness' as duly noted by you.

I do find your response unnecessarily bullish though. I am genuinely concerned that I don't know any up and coming producers that can tell a minor third from a major third.

You don't need to know theory in order to be good though.

It doesn't matter, Music doesn't have to be calculated on a scale to be "good" or "bad" I think the general consensus on this thread is that you should dig a little deeper in order to discover music that is quite exciting in terms of production and theatrics if that tickles the fancies. Good music is out there, but you will never know it until you turn off FM radio and other means of commercial gggaaaabbbbaaaaaagggeeeeeee.

How many crappy punkbands were there after Sex Pistols, The Ramones, The Clash, etc?
How many crappy grungebands were there after Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Alice in Chains,etc?

I think between your thread title, and your post, you are dealing with two totally different things, since when was weird boring?
You can get boring sameness with a traditional composition using advanced music theory concepts just as easily as you can get an amazing track that doesn't have any sense of chord/melody structure or composition at all.
