I hate faux, "8bit chiptune", music. These types of songs try to take advantage of people's nostalgia for old video game music. The people who makes this stuff think that they don't need to put in any effort if it's just beeps and boops. What they're either forgetting or ignoring is that that composers put in extra effort to make the most out of narrow technical limitations. This stuff not only doesn't even stay within the boundaries of those technical limitations, but they don't so much as make an effort to be listenable.

I think this is an extremely important point. I remember reading articles about composers for the original nintendo and how they would have to push the chip to the absolute limit, and find all sorts of hack to get the sounds that they needed. I also used to own a nanoloop and working within the limitations of that could be quite challenging.

I listened to the second link in your post (pasted below for reference) and while some of the harmonies and melodies seemed to be pretty representative of 8 bit video game styles, the first thing I heard was a modulating acid bassline that would never have been possible on an 8 bit chip.

Thanks for the response. Yu-No came out in 1996 and the pc98 itself came out in 1982, before even the Famicom, and used the Yamaha YM2608 chip. I know very little about sound engineering, but here's the Wikipedia page for it.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yamaha_YM2608
I'm pretty sure that the system is considered 16/32 bit. Anyway, it still shows the massive difference in effort between what people produced back then and modern, "retro", music, which also often doesn't fit 8-bit parameters. The third link, which was for the pc-88, is probably closer to mark when it comes to comparable technical limitations.

Why dont you own an arranger keyboard?
You could literally be writing a song an hour in any style you want.

Dont tell me that its because "muh originality and artistic integrity." Every genre is made out of idioms and all this does is play those idioms in along with your melodies and harmonies.

Dolores O’Riordan, the lead singer of the Irish rock band the Cranberries, died on Monday in London. She was 46.

Her death was announced by her publicist, who did not specify the cause.

“Irish and international singer Dolores O’Riordan has died suddenly in London today,” Lindsey Holmes, the publicist, said in an emailed statement, adding that Ms. O’Riordan had been in London for a recording session.

The statement said that family members are “devastated to hear the breaking news and have requested privacy at this very difficult time.”

A spokeswoman for the Metropolitan Police said on Monday that the police were called to a Park Lane hotel in Westminster at about 9:05 a.m., and that Ms. O’Riordan was pronounced dead at the scene. Her death is being treated as “unexplained,” the spokeswoman said.

Ms. O’Riordan wrote lyrics and often music for the Cranberries’ 1990s hits, including “Linger” (which remained on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart for 24 weeks) and “Dreams,” which proclaimed both vulnerability and steadfastness. She was the sole writer of the noisier, angrier “Zombie,” a response to an Irish Republican Army terrorist bombing in 1993.

Did anyone check this out?

Spoiler: I support Trump and used to listen to Eminem back when he was good

Out of respect for his earlier works, I decided to give this album a listen, the same way I have listened to every album that has sucked since he began sucking. As of writing this, I have only listened to half of it. While Eminem is clearly skilled, it is doubtful that he has any idea of what people actually want to listen to anymore.

In the first track, Walk on Water (featuring Beyonce) gave me a little hope for this album as it sounded like Eminem was getting personal, talking about his hopes, fears, victories, and disappointments. The second track however, begins with a negation of all of that and he claims that since he has a mic, he is a god.

The fourth track, Untouchable, is an NWA style beat criticizing whites and white police officers. In this track he talks at length about the struggle of the black community and of white privilege. Speaking honestly, this is enough to turn me off right here, but since I am trying to listen objectively, I did not let it. What did turn me off however, was that he continuously calls himself black through by referring to blacks and the black community as "we," when in the second track he talks about the privileged lifestyle that he leads, living in a gated community where the neighbors say "hi." It came off as inauthentic and forced.

 No.31812

River (feat Ed Sheeran) was ok. I honestly hate the guest appearances on the choruses, but this was passable. This song is basically a moral tale against having casual unprotected sex. Not really what Eminem was about, but hey, maybe he grew up a little.

Remind Me is a negation of all of that, which tries to capture the fun old Eminem. He talks about wanting to pick up a big fake tittied slut, but it sounds forced. Conspicuously present is a sample of Joan Jett's I Love Rock and Roll. Joan Jett is a feminist icon, which gives further creedence to the claims that Eminem has gone full SJW.

The last track I made it through before work was Like Home. It is an anti Trump track disguised as a patriotic track. In this track he calls for Trumps assassination, which is already cliche as fuck, and he also calls Trump a nazi (OMG!). He also says that he loves his country and that he is going to fight for it, which is a load of bullshit because in Untouchable he says the following:

>Home of the brave is still racist 'ville

>So this whole nation feels like a plantation field
>In a country that claims that its foundation was based on United States ideals
>That had its Natives killed
>Got you singin' this star-spangled spiel
>To a piece of cloth that represents the "Land of the Free" that made people slaves to build

So, halfway through, I think its pretty shitty. I think that Eminem has lost touch with America long ago. I mean, look how edgy his shirt in this picture is. Its not like the entirety of mainstream media is shoveling this same shit down your throat. Eminem drew a line in the sand and said for me to stop listening to his music. I should have done what he asked. His music has sucked for ages and I cant imagine that changing now.

Huh, I guess I'm speaking as someone who doesn't know much about it, but what's the usual use of solfege? How do you deal with notes outside of the key if you ever would have to sing them?

 No.31810

>>31809
This is a debate that I would have in my mind as well. My school used fixed do, but my friend at Berklee said that they used moveable. I thought that moveable was actually far more practical and that fixed was a sort of experiment by educators to break students away from tonality. In order to sing notes outside of the key you would just “think sharp” or “think flat” and sing the same syllable. Whether the note on the staff is an F, F#, or Fb, tit is still solfeged as “Fa”

>The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's Class of 2018 has been announced and the eligible alternative rock acts were almost entirely shut out. In their first year of eligibility, Radiohead and Rage Against the Machine, both of whom were considered to be among the favorites for induction, did not get in. Neither did Kate Bush. Eurythmics or Depeche Mode.

>In terms of alternative-minded artists, only the Cars, who mixed new wave with rock and pop to great effect in the late '70s and early '80s made the cut.


>Instead, the Hall also chose Bon Jovi – who won the fan vote – the Moody Blues, Dire Straits and Nina Simone.

I didnt realize that the hall of fame included non-rock artists. Ok then, Depeche Mode definitely deserves induction.

>>31730
Yeah, I stand by RATM not being inducted. They were probably put on the list because of general political turbulence. In the grand scheme of things, they werent even active for that long. Might as well put Limp Bizkit in the hall of fame.

I didnt realize that the hall of fame accepts non-rock artists. That being the case, I would absolutely argue for the induction of Depeche Mode. I would say that their big songs are as classic as any band in the hall of fame.
