Thoughts on the new Taylor Swift?



Listening to this song is like having sex with the op image


A terrible experience

>tfw you just realize how easy it is to play a diminished 7th bar chord, which is the one chord you use a lot in your music but never had in your guitar vocabulary


>tfw you also realize if you learn the voicing for one dim 7 you know them all, so you dont need to learn a ton of extra voicings

Just bought this guy, I'm pretty excited about it. Need to change out the factory strings though, they sound awful.

Here is my acoustic. It's a Taylor E110


I have now had this guitar for 11 years. New 110s are made in Mexico, but this was made when Taylor was still making 110s in the USA. I didnt realize that until recently. There probably isnt much difference between a USA and Mexican made 110, but it does give the guitar a certain aura of "higher quality."

>an uncharted musical journey: an expansive work of ambient electronic soundscapes and chilling ballads in an inaugural volume in the Music To Draw To series using an array of synthesisers, keys, guitars, strings, turntables.

>Masterminded by multi-instrumentalist Joe Acheson, using recordings of dawn choruses, “the singing of a large number of birds before dawn each day, particularly during the breeding season”.

>A riotous romp through imaginatively used samples, familiar piano riffs, customary beats and other rave tropes, the master of mischief Luke Vibert puts together a 10 track ode to the era of M25 convoys, mobile phone hotlines and raving amongst dogs on strings in British aerodrome fields.

>Raw, dynamic performances and beautifully honest songwriting with uplifting harmonies delivered via her powerful lead vocal and jazz tinged keys work

> In true Hot 8 style, this album pairs hard-hitting, heart-on-sleeve sentiment with party-fuelling beats, hooks and grooves; raw funk and charismatic hip hop vocals mix with Big Easy jazz elegance.

Small Philadelphia (I think) power pop band's debut, very comfy, worth a listen

This is dropping tomorrow, already heard every track multiple times. Fun and cool if you're into bass music, otherwise, not. I love it.


It's been a shite year for music. My AOTY would have probably been Melody's Echo Chamber's album that was supposed to come out before she had an aneurysm

Can you guys think of any artists that are respected both in classical and pop circles?


Frank Zappa comes to mind


Basically only these two guys, but honestly neither one of them are truly accepted in the classical world. It would be extremely rare that you would see Zappa on the same program as Beethoven.


Yeah, even though I posted a pic of Greenwood, I know he isn't respected. I don't think Zappa quite makes the cut either. Maybe there's someone though. I'm considering performers too, not just composers


It's useless to imagine "pop music" before it made sense as a concept, but I'm tempted to say Liszt is the closest to fitting this bill, Lisztomania and all


Lang Lang played with Metallica at the Grammys

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:



Fran Guidry - Manuela Boy


I am working on this tune now. Its pretty fun. Fran plays it in a more bluesy way, adding swing and a lot of improv. I play it with swing, but my improv skills are nowhere near his.


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.

Holy damn. This album blew me away. It's one weird, abrasive, mostly atonal experience. Lots of glitching, hard distortion and broad genre use. This is incredibly well done, very impressive all around. The only obvious flaws are that the short length and lack of structure can make some tracks forgettable at first.


File: 1503239077518.png (186.32 KB, 1200x1200, ClipboardImage.png)

More high energy, inter-genre fuckery like this needs to happen. Zekk is one of my favorite producers for sure, this guy from South Korea effortlessly breaks all genre borders and remains himself throughout it all. This is versatile from start to end - ranging from deep, uplifting pads, to cutesy vocals and hard hitting bass music. I think this is his best work yet and I'm really digging the mixdowns too. Definitely recommended.


File: 1503443519644.jpg (202.91 KB, 960x960, rezz mass munipilation.jpg)

All around solid album, Rezz's work sounds fresh. It's good to see more female producers around. The beats and the jumpy, heavy basslines will get you moving for sure. Along with that, there's industrial vibes all over this. It's like a hotpot of many genres. Didn't end up skipping a single track.

If you're not into typical edm build-drop music, this one, and >>31634, are definitely recommended.

What is the balance of hardware/software like in your music?

Do you prefer one method over the other?

How well do the two worlds integrate for you?


100% software at present


i like the flexibility of software, I dont see any real benefit to having hardware other than having tangible objects to interact with, which can be inspiring


when i did have more hardware i always found that it did not mix well with softsynths. this is probably attributable to my lack of mixing skills at the time


>What is the balance of hardware/software like in your music?
100% software and likely to stay this way, unless instruments count as hardware.

>Do you prefer one method over the other?

Yes, I strongly prefer software. I'm lost without Ableton.

>How well do the two worlds integrate for you?

I haven't even touched the hardware side, haha


I totally prefer hardware. My favorite way of recording is just with my mic instruments and audacity. But maybe hardware/software is a moot point when you simply prefer using physical instruments (I mean, is that really /hardware/?)

It really depends on what you're working on though. I also like making mashups, mixes and remixes with dj software, and that's 100 percent on my computer


I prefer having more hardware. I like to collect keyboards and speakers. Currently i have 7 sets of speakers, and 3 keyboards in my room. The reason i dont have a lot of software is because im terrible at mixing, so I like to spend more time playing than recording.

I dont really integrate the two worlds that much, only one of my keyboards can even be hooked up to my computer.
