Re: Why music is getting boring?

I think a lot of electronic music might be starting to sound the same because of so many people just using loops. I don't have anyway to prove that this is the case however and I still find stuff I really like once in a while.

Why do you think they invented noise? Because music sucks.

Perhaps listening to music should be banned for a while. Give everyone a detox.

Well technically music is weird, it has been created by birds. Yeah. Really, think about it.

Re: Why music is getting boring?

There is so much more music available due to the ubiquity of software, ergo quality control is naturally on the opposite side of the balance. Also i feel a lot of electronic labels have adopted a cash-in mentality versus promoting truly innovative work

Re: Why music is getting boring?

Harmony and composition aren't all there is to music. Compare music to art on a canvas. A painter does not have to conform to certain rules to make art.

There is so much music out there it is hard to understand how anyone can say it's boring because obviously that person has not explored the entirety of what people are making..

Yesyesyes...people bring so much scene bullshit to music and all this ancillary detritus that it becomes contextualized into something very little resembling art

yeah sure. but in a society where many people have different reasons for liking certain music and different levels of experience and refined taste (or lackof) with music... we have to get over that shiz...and focus on what matters to us. You can easily ignore it and stay in the niche you like.. feel lucky the internet exists and you can surround yourself with pretty much any form you want.. albeit yes, maybe what's popular is annoying and heavily marketed and contrived.. and maybe the people who are still learning to make music are flooding the scene creating a lot of noise or copy-catting.. but you still have a choice and limitless catalogues of music and people you can connect with who are on your level.. who think like you..

Oh man.. I totally understand where you are coming from..

When the crowded freeways of the mainstream do not sing our song we feel disconnected from the world.

I couldn't think of a more compelling impetus towards making one's own music...harness that petulant energy into a positive outlet....

Re: Why music is getting boring?

maybe it's the musicians are just boring

It's getting so competitive out there musicians have to be so professional to compete. So professional you get acts playing with cans of Stella filled with water on stage so the audience think they're rock n roll.

Give Keith Richards a synth i say

But yeah there is still a lot of interesting stuff out there just choose your sources.

Re: Why music is getting boring?

dude if you think music is boring you seriously are fucking out of touch. not aggressive or angry... you're just sad to me. there is more music in both studio and concert recording that exists, if streamed together, which would outplay the time of your lifespan tenfold. a lot of it is fucking GOOD. this means ten of your shitty selves would have to listen to a constant stream of all the music and sounds that exist on this planet to actually be informed and prove your incorrect opinion, and yet you are bored. that's sad. bleh. suck a fucking dick.

Re: Why music is getting boring?

Well...good music in general is not boring, and certainly a lot of new music isn't boring, and even a little bit of new IDM isn't boring, and in fact, we have an embarrassment of riches as far as the accessibility of art, music, film, literature etc. Moreover, the very best new stuff is practically guaranteed to be a free download from a netlabel.

The problem is that you have to actively go out and look for the good stuff... while you are bombarded with bad stuff.

and then once you hear something that truly moves you forward, then the stuff that used to move you forward can't do that for you anymore. So paradoxically the greater the quality of art you experience, the more likely it is that you'll be bored by art in general....

Re: Why music is getting boring?

There's no real need to be 'rebellious' anymore as most of those movements which earlier scenes were attached to came and went and we're now in a post-everything world where nothing is shocking and nearly everything that was has been absorbed by the majority.

Think of that store in the mall, hot topic.. If something hip and cool comes around, they turn it into a commodity that anyone can buy into. The last time that I went in there though everything was batman/superhero themed, harry potter, and some anime that I'm not familiar with.

Re: Why music is getting boring?

What people find to be boring is hilarious (myself included). Show me any Pearl Jam song with 'heart', 'soul' and thousands of layers, and I'll probably gravitate to some guy dicking around with a synth in his closet.

I also see lots of youtube demonstrations of modular gear and noise rigs, yet I never know where to find these guys'es work. There's so much white noise (and not the kind I like) pushing for popularity that it's still hard to find just teh right spine-tingling goodies. To make matters worse, lots of people who are amazing think their music is shit and it's all Unregistered's fault that they never got signed.

It's not boring though. If anything, that makes looking for the gems all the more interesting.

I disagree - we are just at the tip of the iceberg of what's possible musically...
