Top 5 classical composers


Favorite era


Hate to be a classical normie, but:

1. Bach
2. Tchaikovsky
3. Beethoven
4. Mozart
5. Brahms

Favorite era is Romantic, but Baroque is right behind it.


classical is one of the best genres to be a normie in, though. So, I hate to look contrarian, but my personal favorites are probably:


Modern era is obviously my favorite. I like the romantic era a lot too, though

What's the worst pop song/trend you can think of? Firefly comes to mind for me.

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.
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.


Bubblegum-pop is the worst thing that has ever happened to music.


There is still good "chiptune" music being made (even though it's not actually chiptune anymore) But I definitely agree on what you're saying though.

some semi-recent albums that I think are actually really good:
she - coloris
starscream - future, and it doesn't work
anamanaguchi - dawn metropolis
sabrepulse - chipbreak wars
4mat - decades

My album collection stops at 2016 since the past year I've been busy finishing college and getting a jerb. What are some standout albums that I should listen to?


from 2017 that is, 2018 is welcome as well.


This is all albums from 2018 so far, you can edit it by year, format, genre, subgenre, country….


What do you like?

Stop what you are doing and go learn some Hawaiian Slack Key guitar. It is easy to get started with, sounds good, and fun to play. On top of that, it has a cool history and is genuinely a "music of the people" meaning that it has not been tainted by commercial interest.


Ledward and Fran jamming:

These are very nice. Don't see myself actively interested in it, but I wouldn't complain if this sorta stuff played for days on end.


I didnt care for it much at first, but like many things, once I began playing it, I found it a lot more enjoyable. Still not my main thing, but it has given me a lot of inspiration for my other projects.

This guy plays exclusively in DGDGBE tuning and likes to work on his own guitars.

Good stuff

What events will you attend?

Actually, if this were real I wouldn't consider it too lame; it would be an avant garde masterpiece. I would probably be weeping postironic tears of joy in anticipation of the posthuman event horizon by the end TBH


I would want to see Harambe, but he’s so mainstream.

I would like to see CNN and Ivanka Trump on the same stage

Always been a fan of the Morning Piss

My name jeff


This album was dope.

Needs a more detailed review though. Not my soup dish though, so who feels lucky to dabble these hot waters and noodle up a review of these coffeehouse jams? (excluding that last track lol, that's more something for like satanic starbucks or something, obviously with goats.)

Cant wait


derrr I'm a day late but doing some finishing touches… HYPE


I'm visiting family right now. This Monday will be the definite day of release, not any later. Sorry for the delay.


Guess who got a migraine yesterday when I started working on the album. :(

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.
