Do you think Kavinsky is overrated? I feel that like 90% of the songs he makes is painfully average and extremely similar structurally, yet he seems to be praised as the go-to synthwave artist. Now I really don't know much about the genre but if you OP have an opinion on it then I'd love to hear your 2 cents.

I definitely agree that Kavinsky is overrated. I've yet to hear anything that really impresses me on a compositional level.

That, and he's not good at mixing either. Especially Odd Look sounds bad.

When one makes music, they face the choice to package it, present it- essentially objectify it- in an effort to assess its true value- or they could decide not to do that, retreat to their subjective relationship with their music, live in their fantasy, and, well, in a way, honor the music more because music ultimately exists to serve some subjective purpose anyway.

There are so many parallels here, too. Replace "makes music" with "listens to music" (consider last.fm, RYM). Hell, replace it with "relates to other people."

Help me musikchan with my slightly music related existential crisis- what is right? Is there a broad answer for all of this, or if not, how do you draw the lines?

>music ultimately exists to serve some subjective purpose anyway
No. I refuse to believe that. You didn't actually ask a question. Make music because you enjoy it. Sell it if you want to make money on it. The monetary value of music is not an absolute judge of quality. It measures how much people want it. Lots of garbage music is in high demand. Don't draw any lines because lines are useless and restrictive. Drawing lines won't help you

Does musikchan know about Lina Morgana, the artist that worked with Lady Gaga? Lady Gaga ripped her off and then she mysteriously committed suicide.

what are your top 3 favourite instruments.

Piano is probably my favorite although I can barely play it, guitar is my main instrument. I just love how all the notes are laid out in front of you in keys. You get a great piano player, it's like they're working magic with their fingers.

I'm sick of guitar even though I play every day. It's such a hassle coming up with what melodies work with your fingers and their placement on the strings, in conjunction with different tunings and whatnot. Piano seems so much more straightforward.

I guess my third pick would be a three way tie between cellos, violins, and drums.

 No.32010

>>32007
do you play in any alternate tunings?

I play in open G a lot. I find it extremely intuitive, but I can only really play in the key of G.

 No.32015

Piano. I've been playing it for years. It's versatility and, "cleaness", can't be beat. Piano is like music in its purest form, with no instrument characterization. Even when you listen to a harpsichord or organ, you feel like you're listening to the notes through a filter.

 No.32047

>>32010
Wow, didn't think I would've got a response that quick, but yeah. I play in open D a lot. Didn't the stones use open G? I learned open D from playing Elliott Smith songs mainly, and maybe a couple Bob Dylan ones, like Corrina Corrina (his version of). Can't really say it's any easier, I'm probably just a shit musician.

 No.32053

>>32047
yeah, the stones used open G, but I mostly play fingerstyle folk stuff

something like this

i have played in open G enough to really know the fretboard and my ear is attuned to what my hand should be doing. the only downfall is that i only play in the key of G.

Not an album but I'll share one of my favorite blues songs

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=626pNZB8xXE

Written by Jimmy Cox in the 1920's, then recorded by Scrapper Blackwell circa ~1960. Something about this just sounds ahead of its time to me. I can't put my finger on what, maybe that it's very accessible?

 No.32012

Chicago blues is good. The blues clubs in Chicago are still pretty fun too. I've got to say though, I'm not sure how to define Chicago blues other than that it's electric and from Chicago
