Who said? Pretty big time span to make such a general assumption. You just covered the entire Classical, Romantic, Impressionistic, Modern, Post Modern, then the 50's, ROCK N ROLL, 80's, electronic, grunge, and post rock.

I actually find this quite funny, lol

Anyway throughout all the musical transition of time you will find that one person or select group who is lazy and bored with life and things around them.

Yes- I think bored people are lazy. Fucking open your eyes, ears and soul or do something!

P.S. 19th century is the 1800's and 20th century is the 1900's. We are in the 21st century!

Re: Why music is getting boring?

music isn't getting boring to me. maybe you should go on a search for more artists that you like.

also, music theory is not all that necessary, particularly with certain styles.

Re: Why music is getting boring?

If find interesting the fact that some producers don't know anything about music, so they must rely on other things to make a good track. Like for instance crazy breaks.

Like a painter who don't know how to paint will think out of the box and do unexpected things.

It gaves other people new ideas.


Btw, when I do find that music is boring, most of the time the problem come from me, not from "the music"!

Cheers!

The new and exciting artists are still out there. So is solid information and truly insightful commentaries.
The problem is dilution. It has become a true test of patience these days to find the gems. And due to sheer mass one relies too much on aggregators based on algorithms. So, you find more of the same, which is great to some degree, as you find what you like (when it works). Not so great to find other things you may like but never know about.

Re: Why music is getting boring?

Because you're being lazy on your digging.

The internet is amazing. Soundcloud for example - find a tune you like, click on the likes, click on somebody's profile who likes that tune too. Look at their likes. Rinse and repeat. Bookmark pages that like a lot of good music, follow pages that post or repost. Follow your favorite artists and labels on social media, find blogs, etc.

I do that too, so i can't say it's wrong. But the paradox is, this is why music can turn boring. If you only folow the suggestions of internet, you will always turn around the same stuff. You can't discover new stuff following the same tag. It's cool to dig in it, but this the best to finish in : "i've already heard that".

I think you have to put some random in you research to really get surprise

Re: Why music is getting boring?

The only new music I seem to enjoy these days is what I can find from obscure Soundcloud channels, most of them I find here in the listening booth.
Like this dude Tillermann, his music just grabs me like almost no other electronic music does, it is completely my flavor. Such an unique sound and I can't find anything on this guy except his soundcloud where he is active once every century or so. If this guy were to perform near my city I would go to every one of his gigs.
Or Flauridia or Mylamine, same thing, love that music way more than anything I hear on the radio or see on the beatport charts.

i may have already said this, but i feel that not enough music is chord based instead of loop or melody based. so yeah, i actually agree with you.

there are exceptions of course, but it's hard to find good music if you dont know where to look. most of the music i really enjoy the most is from the 1990s.

i think the other problem with electronic music is way too much conformity. too many people are copying a cookie-cutter mold of musical cliche's and it really stagnates the whole field.

If you feel music is getting boring, try harder.

That advice doesn't quite always work. Yeah, it can help, and you might discover something— might.

But music getting boring to make is a hump that has to be overcome by, more than anything else, toughing it out. All creative arts go through periods of highs and lows, where the creator goes from being inspired in their work to just drudging through it every day. When the going gets tough, the best advice is to simply keep going, imo. Dry spells aren't fun, but giving up during them does nothing but harm your current and future skills/goals.

Searching for inspiration isn't the easiest thing to do, and neither is toughing out dry spells. eh.

I think boring is a word people misuse when they really should say they dislike things. To me the true sense of the word boring means you are too fucking lazy to change your situation. Like find music you like...

Ah looks like I already said this...so read up. Listen to something different.
