This thread makes me both happy and sad, happy many are open minded and can accept new types of music sad because of just the opposite, the
narrow-mindedness that discard anything modern as trash. You don't necessarily have to like dubstep but all that is released these days is not trash.
I believe many misunderstand the the term music producer which could be the corporate fat cat you all now about but it also refers to an artist who
mostly uses the computer to compose songs, they are the modern day composers you could say but the need of an entire orchestra has been replaced by
the computer and a lot of new ways to process sound has been invented. So instead of being limited to just the classical instruments they can actually
make the sound they think they need tailored to their needs and they are also not limited by the proficiency of the performers since the computer will
do it perfectly every time; unlocking almost limitless possibilities for creativity.
Don't get me wrong I appreciate traditional music more, I like to see proficient players of any instrument perform a song with out most devotion and
feeling. But I can appreciate well composed electronic songs almost as much, not in a live environment though, you just can't beat a good human
performance in feeling.
We would all be so tired of classical music if we hadn't created new forms of music. When Mozart first hit the scene many people thought he was
radical and that he created horrid unharmonious music which doesn't even occur to us, dissonance today for most people would be somewhere toward
harder rock music I suppose or dubstep. There is no difference today from what happened back then.
Don't be so quick to dismiss the progress we have made, we are just building on a foundation that will always be there and we have a lot to thank the
old guys for (especially you Bach!).
I listen to almost anything, classical, rock, trance, metal, hiphop/rap, raggae, jazz and much else I can't remember to mention, I also try to listen
to music I don't like to see if I find something to like in my less traveled categories of music.
In regard to producers I would say in my opinion that the most talented producers of our day is Infected Mushroom for their boundless creativity and
attention to detail that most others wouldn't come close to, not to mention that their productions are among the best sounding on this earth (their
recording quality is awesome and sounds incredible in a good sound system at almost any volume without distortion). I'm not saying everyone has to
like them but objectively they are very talented and put a great amount of work into their music and as long as you do that no one can claim your
music is bad.
