trebor you might like this if you don't normally like electronic music. i think it probably appeals more to people that don't lol. it doesn't have the best production or crazy glitchy dubstep stuff or anything but i tried to make it as emotional as possible because i needed an outlet for my depression and i was having a hard time getting an actual band together (been trying to start a skramz band for a while now but all the musicians i know are flaky as hell). or you might hate it, idk haha.

well some people liked it. i'm just saying if you like emotional music (which i know trebor does) you might dig it. it's worth a shot, i'm not saying it's going to be anyone's favorite album or anything.

it's cool aids, just check it out if you ever have time. yeah silentpotato's album was pretty good (like a 3.5 for me.) scoot's is good too but the fact that it's made entirely out of samples kind of irks me.

Why would sample based music bother you? It takes skill to take something recognizable and turn it into something new

i don't mind sample based music like burial or something, but straight-up plunderphonics is something i'm not too big on.

i don't necessarily dislike them, i just prefer musicians that make their own music. it's like an
author taking his favorite chapters from several books, combining them, and then acting like he wrote
it. he may be skilled at finding stories with similar plots, themes, and characters, but at the end of
the day it isn't his work. that's just how a feel about it, you're welcome to your own interpretation.

But who is to say that the result of these combinations isn't something new? It's not like they simply take two songs and splice them together like a mash-up, they're taking the wholly separate and creating something cohesive out of it

it's like an author taking his favorite chapters from several books, combining them, and then acting like he wrote it.


Yeah, it's kind of redundant to compare something that has to follow a narrative arc with something that only chooses to do so. No one is passing this off as something truly original, or claiming that they alone made this; they come from a sample-based culture and they advertise it as such. This is all just differing opinions, but you need to stop looking at things so straight and narrow

"No one is passing this off as something truly original, or claiming that they alone made this; they come from a sample-based culture and they advertise it as such."

yes i realize this, but it's kind of implied when it's their name on the album cover. again, i'm not gonna knock people who use samples or who enjoy sample-based music, i would just rather listen to musicians that build their music from the ground up with their own original compositions. also, there's the whole issue of copyrights which makes it pretty difficult for anyone who's not kanye west to effectively make sample based music without risking getting into a sticky legal situation.
