I have no idea what you are reading into this short sequence, but I merely noted that you have talked about musical complexity rather than the same-ishness regarding trailer music, which is a different boat.FriFlo wrote: ↑Fri 7 Dec 2018 19:31According to those standards, all music has a lot of "same-nishness". If you look at the wave form, it is more or less just slightly different shapes. Listening to it, it is all just a mix of pitches, aligned to the grid of time. But that of course is a very superficial way of talking about music! At least that you must realize ...
That's a trend with you, because you also stated that i cannot discriminate between production and musicality - however I stated nothing that would support that.
Actually I very precisely differentiate between musical quality and production. There are some very well written pieces I've heard that suffer from
The only thing is - I don't really care to differentiate when I'm listening. I'm not thinking then. If I appreciate it in what ever way I'm taking it. Whether it's a musically not so interesting but very well produced piece, or a piece that isn't that well written but very emotionally engaging, or a piece that is well written but poorly produced - those can still engage me enough to appreciate them.
And I'm not really interested in music because I don't think about it like you... yea I see. I only spent 5000 + Euro on tools to produce music rather than movies, games, great food, travels etc and sometimes but I'm actually not really interested in it.
The rest... odd. I think I'll never appreciate music that I can only understand via musical training or something... also not sure what music that is supposed to be. Jazz? I don't feel like I don't understand it - I just don't tend to like what's being done musically. Maybe I indeed don't understand it. But even if I would - there is a old, dusty, clownish and nervous vibe about Jazz that makes me feel hollow - so not sure purely musical "understanding" would help.
Labels cannot condition anyone to anything... how would they do that? You could play me all sorts of pop music with the most fun videos attached to it and 3 Billion views and likes and I'd still end up disliking most of it. It's almost like you apply the blank slate theory to musical taste. And think labels have a super power they can use to brainwash millions of people - in some way...
