if you don't understand what someones talking about from a post then perhaps you can ask them to elaborate on the bit your not getting?
Im happy to skype or facebook chat if you would like to talk further or exchange some thoughts on this thread.
hey, I feel like I translated your last post in my head because i've been doing this awhile but it raises questions to anyone looking for advice. just trying to understand your language, mainly because I thought your Triad/GTA reference was lulz. I have a few questions:
can you please elaborate on what constitutes a "dominant IDM sound"?
can you define what exactly is a "more organic tone"? what features make a beat "contemporary"?
what exactly does it mean to "make chords glitchy". or "gitchy" drums in the "background". what are glitchy drums? what is the "background"? how does layering an IDM sound into your mix extract more organic tones?
what patterns and rules do you speak of the OP should avoid? and why?
is music made up of patterns?
what does it mean to "follow the sound and not the rules"?
why in one sentence do you tell the OP to use "any characteristic" (which is what?) of a genre, then in the very next sentence tell them to not be worried by genre identity?
