Share stuff related to making music


This is a video which explains the basics of modern western music from the beginning, in a prettily animated way. I recommend this to people who are interested in music but don't know much yet, like what notes/scales are exactly
https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=mdEcLQ_RQPY

There is also part two and three, which deal with harmony (chords) and rhythm respectively. I haven't watched them yet, but the harmony one seems to go into deeper concepts like functional harmony (which may be basic for you, but not for everyone), the rhythm I think will be an introduction like the melody one

OP here, posting more stuff.
Music theory. Is it really useful? Or will it kill/hurt your creativity?
I found a good answer to this question on 4chan:
>Having a vocabulary large enough to know when to choose the right word is always a good thing.
>Using your large vocabulary to make hyper-verbose word salad is a bad thing.
>A lot of great songwriters use their understanding of music theory to communicate simple and effective ideas. Some songwriters use that same knowledge to make musical word salad. The music theory knowledge isn't what makes them good or bad.
Here's a video that goes more in detail video about these things:

It explains more advantages/disadvantages of learning theory or not learning it. If you have doubts on wether you need music theory I recommend watching it

I discovered nin from "hurt", and this album is something. I can't relate to most of the lyrics (except some lines, for example "I have lived so many lives all in my head") but I feel it a lot, despite me not having lived or felt things of that intensity. Self titled comes in my mind spontaneously certain days.

Media genres are only a social construct to differentiate different kinds of instrumentals/patterns and associate the kind of people who listen to them. But as people shouldn't try to describe themselves with a certain group, I believe media [more specifically music and video] shouldn't be made to fit any specific genre.
My favorite media blurs the lines between these genres. Things like obscure anime[example: Pani Poni Dashu], fan spinoffs[example: Star Wreck], experimental/*core music[example: David Bowie, Death Grips, Goreshit].

Tell me are there any weird music you listen to that you couldn't apply once specific genre to?
Do you think music producers should conform to a respective genre rather than experiment with something that may fail entirely?

tldr; I love weird ass muzak

 No.336[D][DF]

>Media genres are only a social construct
Many genres emerged inside a community which often consisted of people of similar background (especially musical) and/or values.
As a result genres often had shared characteristic and actual values, often it could be tied down to a place (or a few)
Hip hop for example was born from people who wanted to party and missed funk in new york, bronx. Then as it evolved it acquired values and even formed a culture that had not just rap, but djing, bboying (breakdance) and writing(graffiti). So the music was part of a real sub-culture.
Historically many genres had a genuine culture attached to them (and later were exploited by business)

As time goes on however this seems to be happening less, probably internet contributed to this too, as one can now listen to basically anything from everywhere.
Many artists start making music using different elements from different genres, as a result it's hard if not impossiple to put them in a box.

 No.337[D][DF]

>>335
My thoughts on the matter is that the genre follows the music. Barring highly formulaic musical genres such as the blues, there are very few recent works or artists that easily fall into a certain genre. We just slap the genres on so it's a little easier to find similar stuff to what you like, so it does serve a definite function. But I don't think many people say "I want to create some post-punk industrial ambient pop that takes cues from early-70s prog and welsh folk" or whatever the fuck. They just make the music, and then they (or someone else) slaps the genre on there so fans of the genre can find them hot, esoteric tunes. This is pretty much the case for any form of media, of course. Not just music. It's important not to get too caught up in genres and just recognize music for what it is: a free expression of human creativity. If you let your music get restricted by genre (and the demand for it), you get shit like today's hip-hop and country (may allah forgive me for mentioning it).
I recently found an artist called Pajjama. They make some of the most enjoyably weird-ass music you could ask for.

You're completely right. When making this thread, I was in a more modern mindset where all media is freely available to everyone. So I didn't exactly think about the origins of the genres. But this worries me that the internet may be contributing to destroying these cultures.
>>337
I guess in a way they follow each-other. When one makes something so original that couldn't be defined with a genre. People would get inspired to make something similar. And from there, a new genre is born.

 No.277[D][DF]

>>265
I agree with these answers in a way. Quebec I do consider the best Ween album, they put pretty much solid work into it and combined these sort of different themes, the sound is crisp and clean, the lyrics are cleverly put, everything about it is great. GWS on the other hand, while I never found it appealing I can understand what you mean by creatively. There are elements in there that still spawn in their newer creations like Chocolate and Cheese. However, if I were to pick an album more creative, it'd probably be The Mollusk. It introduces a new twist to Ween entirely. Sea shanties and psychadelia make the album a different experience. The lyrics are crafted in a sort of way where they're made memorable, the instrumentals and the production are crafted as well in the sense of being catchy and interesting to listen to.

 No.303[D][DF]

12 Golden Country Greats probably, it's the one that I've listened to the most and it's really fun to sing along too. Though I do like the variety of Pure Guava. White Pepper is probably my least favourite (out of the ones I've listened to), just didn't leave much of an impression on me

I liked the shining force soundtrack: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=gtluqzRN9VI&list=PL6F05F0EFED0606EB&index=24
It's for the sega genesis. I like how the music having much limitation imposed the tracks to be very loopable, in the sense that even if it's a 30 second loop it's not annoying, it's fun to listen over and over again. It's clear that there were some pretty skilled people behind this
Also celeste: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=0etenwnI1wo&list=PL1eFjFaZ9VkyDcVnvJyEC3P8tCFpZpRoU&index=8
I think that the ost in general was pretty good. But what struck me the most were the drum fills in that track (starting at 3:20). In the game it really created a magical moment for me (it was obviously during a boss fight)
