Did you know Varese once conducted a group of jazz musicians (including Mingus) and was into jazz? This website has the recordings. It was done in 1957 and is in the free jazz style- which this article notes was 4 years before Ornette Coleman's album "Free Jazz"

/mu/ recently made this chart. What do you think of it? What albums would or wouldn't you recommend? What albums would you take off the list or put on?

Some of the choices kind of baffle me, like that Rudimentary Peni album is just a regular punk album- it's not even as raw as the other RP albums I've heard, even if it is pretty repetitive and has a loop of the phrase "papas adrianus" playing in the background throughout the album (probably why it's on there). The Naked City album is normal by their standards as well.

It's too bad they didn't put a recording of Morton Feldman's second string quartet on here. It's a 6 hour long piece that doesn't even just happen to be 6 hours, but was written as an exploration of what a string quartet's structure would become if it was extended to a crazy length, or some shit like that.

Satie's Vexations should also be on the list, well, unless (most likely) there isn't a complete recording of it. It's unclear, but the piece's instructions may suggest it was intended to be played 840 times over. This would make it a very repetitive, ~18 hour long piece. It's been played too

My music listening new years resolution this year was to listen to all of the Frank Zappa albums that were released during his lifetime.

As I write this post, I am currently listening to Joe's Garage. It has been amazing to see the transformation of his music from the first releases until now while maintaining a coherency over the whole body of work.

I've had the flu for the last half week, and while you'd think being bedridden would be a prime music listening opportunity, I haven't felt like listening to anything, and the one time I did think about listening to music I was just feeling like maybe a little radio.

Is this relatable? Does being sick drain the desire to focus on music (or maybe anything) out of you?

Painting With - Animal Collective

What do you guys think about Painting With? My Animal Collective exposure has been only MPP and i'm really getting into this album.

On a specific album I love the technique in which one vocalist sings the lyrics and another 'echoes' it; it's really great in "Summing the Wretch" where the echo is placed just a bit later than expected creating an awesome offbeat funky-ness.

How do you write/compose your music?

Anyone can answer, regardless of skill level. Share your creative process and your process of realizing a track.

I'm experimenting with writing everything down, step for step. Here's a work of mine in progress right now:
http://pastebin.com/5NvC9nsr

After finishing this, I will start creating melodies and interpret chords from them. Once I have a start, I'll go from there. Most likely it'll be a melody similar to what the bands I've listed as influences make. From there, it will start to lead its own life.

Kudos if you just read that all in Spongebob's yelling voice.

You've probably listened to The Smashing Pumpkins' Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness before, right?

But have you heard it in it's original vinyl track order?
>Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness was intended as a two-record set. The CD and cassette versions of the album are divided into two discs, entitled Dawn to Dusk and Twilight to Starlight. The vinyl version, however, is divided into three records with six sides, entitled Dawn/Tea Time, Dusk/Twilight, and Midnight/Starlight. The vinyl release also features two bonus songs ("Tonite Reprise" and "Infinite Sadness"), and a completely rearranged track order. In 2012 the album was remastered and re-released as a 6 disc edition, with 3 bonus discs of music and a DVD and also on 4 Vinyl LPs which contained the regular CD track order instead of the original LP order.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mellon_Collie_and_the_Infinite_Sadness


A common complaint about the double LP is that the songs don't really flow with each other (and that there's a lot of filler)- do you think it sounds better in the original track order?

The Musikians 24th album

It's time to create a new The Musikians album!

The project has been going rather slow lately, so I waited with posting a The Musikians thread to give everyone a break. I have also killed the 2nd project mzrt and I attempted to start up, since .

There is no theme nor deadline on this one. If we have at least 7 tracks and 30 minutes of playtime, plus album art and a title, a release takes place. Every Friday, I will check if we have fulfilled the quota and post an update on how far we are.

Even dubs decide album art, odd dubs decide album title.

How do you feel about the state of commercial 'alternative' music nowadays?

I feel like there has been a severe lack experimentation lately. We used to have acts like (and I don't claim they are experimental) NIN, Korn, Marilyn Manson, Blink-182, Rage Against the Machine, Rise Against and a whole bunch of other heavier or fun stuff. Now it's mostly just played safe by newcomers and a bunch of older bands are just a cheap rehash of their past selves, or currently popular pop/dance styles. Like what the fuck? Bands from that period did this as well, but nowadays it's ridiculous.

The rules:
>no expectations or worrying about copyright related issues, just no mindless noise/drone or music meant to deliberately shit up the release

>odd dubs get the album title

We have no name for the project yet. We can debate over that ITT and vote for one.

There is no actual deadline. I'll check if we have over 30 minutes and over 8 tracks of material every Saturday. If we do, together with a title and art, we'll see a release the following Sunday and submissions will close shortly before release. I'm going to post updates on our progress and our track listing. Everything will be distributed through file sharing sites and YouTube.

We're doing this because we feel the standards for The Musikians have become high. The early days were mostly just screwing around, and that was fun. We were much more free spirited because we didn't have any legal things to take into consideration. The project quickly grew, started to get distributed to paid services and became much more serious and higher in quality. So let's just fuck around, sample, bullshit and make music in the most free-spirited way possible.

Go forth and create!

“The Millennial Whoop”: The same whooping sound in every song

>The same exact whooping, melodic sequence has been showing up in a surprisingly high number of recent pop songs. The phenomenon was first noticed by musician and product manager Patrick Metzger. He detailed the trend, dubbing it “The Millennial Whoop,” in a post on his blog, The Patterning. Here’s how Metzger described it:

>It’s a sequence of notes that alternates between the fifth and third notes of a major scale, typically starting on the fifth. The rhythm is usually straight 8th-notes, but it may start on the downbeat or on the upbeat in different songs. A singer usually belts these notes with an “Oh” phoneme, often in a “Wa-oh-wa-oh” pattern. And it is in so many pop songs it’s criminal.

>Here are some more songs with the whoop (and the time in each song when it appears) that Metzger and commenters on his blog identified:

Katy Perry — “California Gurls” (1:05)
Fall Out Boy — “She’s My Winona” (0:14)
Stonefox — “All I Want” (2:02)
Twenty One Pilots — “Ride” (0:48)
Andy Grammer — “Forever” (3:15)
Fifth Harmony — “Anything is Possible” (0:20)
CHVRCHES — “The Mother We Share” (0:32)
Chris Brown — “Turn Up the Music” (1:30)
Outasight — “Tonight Is the Night” (0:52)
The Head and the Heart — “Down in the Valley” (1:48)
Alejandro Sanz — “Looking for Paradise (featuring Alicia Keys)” (0:14)
Kings of Leon — “Use Somebody” (1:28)
BOY — “Little Numbers” (1:02)

<img src="http://www.musikchan.com/css/images/cb/us.png" alt="us" title="United States" /> Combichri

Hello All,

I know we have some industrial fans on this board. I'd like to submit this album for discussion. Combichrist is currently arguably one of the biggest and most visible acts coming out of the industrial scene. The band is formed around the frontman Andy LaPlegua, who began his career as the frontman of Icon of Coil who had many futurepop hits such as Access and Amplify.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L6q22sHl7Wg

As is the case with many bands, artistic disagreements caused tension and Andy formed his own project, Combichrist, which took a turn towards noise (in the club industrial sense of the word). Combichrist also had a keener eye towards branding and live performance leading them to pretty much dominate the industrial scene for a few years. Combichrist had countless hits, notably This Shit Will Fuck You Up.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K1T4lXfEfyQ

This pattern continued for many years, but in more recent times Combichrist has begun incorporating more and more live instruments such as guitars and drums into their live performances. Live guitars and drums have also found their way into some studio tracks. Now with the recent album, This Is Where Death Begins, Combichrist has all but left the club industrial behind and made an full on industrial metal album.

This Is Where Death Begins is rated incredibly poorly on RYM, which gives it a 1.82. However, I find that it is incredibly refreshing when compared to Combichrist's previous work. Where club era Combichrist panders towards dance floor audiences at the cost of the music itself, This Is Where Death Begins is full of melodies, catchy hooks, and larger diversity of musical ideas, all within the industrial metal aesthetic.

The album sounds genuine. One can hear that Andy must genuinely like industrial metal and be familiar with its idioms.

Well with all of that said, I hope we can all listen and discuss the album.

Nexx is slow as shit edition

Actually, before we start off, I have something I want to propose: semi-themed albums. This will mean tracks needs to prominently include any (from literal to abstract) element you can choose from, or a combination thereof. I believe such a thing would create more unity on releases and provide a fun challenge for contributors, without imposing a stylistic limitation and making it harder to finish a contribution.

For this album, the theme would be dance, for starters.

The list of elements you can choose from are:

>Kick - kicksnare pattern
Use a beat which switches from kick, to kick + snare/clap/whatever in the following beat.

>Obvious dance beat from any given genre
This one is a less specific version of the kick - kicksnare pattern. Use any beat suitable for dancing, such as a trap, grime, moombahton, techno or whatever beat. It can be any style of choice which doesn't use four on the floor patterns (or does so in unusual ways.

>A clearly defined, yet danceable rhythm
Make sure you can nod your head to it, tap your foot or perform a non-obscure style of dancing to it. This doesn't mean your beat has to be electronic, just like the first requirement. This could mean any genre: swing, garage rock, a classical waltz, punk or whatever. As long as you can dance to it in some way.


Other ideas are welcome. I'll make the actual Musikians thread when you guys give green light for this idea.

>tfw suddenly can't log in to what.cd
Fucking kill me
Anyone else discovering music at a much slower rate than they used to?
Mumu's long gone, last.fm is fucking worthless
I don't really talk about music with people at all these days
Don't really know what new music sounds like
Seems like it's all trap music
Any cucks left from the old days?
What have you all been listening to?

It's finally here! Give it up for... drum roll... True Concert of the Southeast Composer's Incinerating Electrical Xylophone by The Musikians!

As always, let everyone know what you think of the album in this thread, and I'm looking forward to seeing the creation of the next release! A new thread will be created tomorrow.

Seasick Steve plays a funny custom single-stringed guitar, made from a washing board. It sounds pretty good, despite the obvious limitations coming with having only one string to play on.

To those of you heavily into classical music:

What drew you to classical? Was it something that you came around to or something that you always loved? Recently I've found I prefer listening to 'heavier' music, and often turn off my CD to listen to the classical radio station, but in terms of how to pursue it as an actual interest... I'm lost. Are there any books/online resources you'd recommend for tracing classical music.

I assume that (moreso than for more modern, poppier genres) for classical understanding and context are a lot of the time key to enjoyment, and so music history is important. But, maybe you have a different approach?

What media player do you all use? I downloaded a very big file that ups really awkwardly into iTunes and need some app where I can reorganise the individual files as I need to, can anyone rec something?
pic vaguely related since it's probably going to take hours to organise properly ;-;7

Opinions on Monstercat?

They're a pretty generic EDM label, but some of the artists are surprisingly enjoyable. Varien, Far Too Loud and Pegboard Nerds are my kinda jams, no shame here.

ITT post albums you loved years ago that you haven't listened to in a long time, why you liked it then and if you still enjoy it

>Silver Jews: Starlite Walker
>Liked it because I liked Pavement and thought the songs were great for driving around with (they are). Thought the twangy, almost country sound was really weird and interesting, and they owned it.
>Still really fucking like it. Haven't listened in three+ years and the thing occurred to me earlier when I revisited Slanted and Enchanted. The whole album is banger, and frankly the songs have much more going for them than the (imo now) cheaper quirky poppers of Pavement. Still think that guitar sounds great and really weird. Lyrics are stronger than I remember.
