Hey all! The purpose of this thread is to share our favorite trance songs with each other so we can all discover great new artists and techniques. It's too beautiful too keep to ourselves, imho. Probably the genre I have loved the longest, and I still listen to it every morning and evening is Trance, which is a form of electronica, and is known for it's relaxing smooth bass lines, and easy going vocals, melody, etc. I look forward to seeing what you're listening to! Here's the song I shall start the thread with:
Well i thought there wasn't any topics of this type so i thought i would make my own Any one of you guys or girls studied music theory? (im kinda teaching myself) My teacher didn't like electronica or dance music (actually he kinda hated it when i would put daft punk or deadmau5 on lol until like the last day of school) I've gotten fascinated about keys, diatonic scales, the circle of fifths, and so on... now due to the fact that ive gotten a faster computer I've downloaded DAWs (digital audio workstations) to use and experiment on... ive actually started making my own melodies. (i dont really have much time to make a full song lol) Basically, what im looking for is somewhat of a new aged music theory (my teacher just played us the beatles and boring mundane rock songs to learn lol... i learned more from the internet than i did with my teacher) So, what i'm kinda asking, what have you learned about music these days that seemed to stand out technically... *insert tech geek text here* like, for example in one of my favorite electronica tracks of all time: Deadmau5- Faxing Berlin...(its my fav dont read or listen if you don't like it) the tempo is 128 BPM (straight with no swing) the key is D# Minor (or E-flat.. its so processed i don't know i can't tell, i don't have perfect pitch lol) with at least i think the A#m chord a bit suspended? (again, perfect pitch not my gift) and it has two bridges and a somewhat of a 8/16 time signature lol (or just 4/4 because thats the drums anyway lol) and it progresses in a organized fashion (at least every 30 seconds to a minute something changes in its structure, the drums or the synth) i don't even want to talk about the mechanical process of producing this track. its interesting to me and probably why its been my favorite deadmau5 track so far because its surprisingly simple(and probably boring to some because it starts out that way, at least for a minute in my opinion).... here's the track for those that want to know what I'm talking about: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YnEUfeiSKt0 Well. i just wanted to point out this because I've always been fascinated about it and how now these days computers, and actually laptops are being used more than ever to make/produce music especially in the electronica category like House, Trance, and obviously ''Dubstep''. Also to DJ with; laptop dj's lol, sorry for vinyl, it still has a place in my heart. i thought about whether it can replace bands and just have one person produce a track from their laptop... but id like to have the real thing since some things can't really be replaced, like the human voice. so if anyone has learned something it would be nice to share if anyone doesnt know what im talking about then just put songs that have a intresting melody or hook or something that catches your ear thanks for the time reading all this post (unless you just scrolled all this... cheater)
