I want to enjoy animation, but i cant help but analyze the Principles of Animation.

That's why I listen to the lyrics. They're the part that've supposed to portray the most emotion about the song anyway.

****** lyrics = ****** music.

Simple.
User avatar #49 to #39 - auesis (01/25/2013) [-]
And what if a song is instrumental? Is it then automatically worthless?
User avatar #47 to #39 - biomedic (01/25/2013) [-]
The music can be a major Tool to portray symbolisms and highlight key themes too though. When used in conjunction with the lyrics, incorporating patterns or including notes that pertain a certain emotional response the mood of the listener is heightened more than lyrics alone could do, since we associate certain note progressions with certain emotions, it's how modes work. Lateralus by Tool is a great example of how the music holds just as much symbolism as the words.

I understand how the physical music plays into the whole song, I didn't mean to say that the lyrics are all I listen to, just that they're usually the thing that make or break a song for me.

I don't know why people are taking it as though I just insulted their favorite bands.
User avatar #60 to #58 - biomedic (01/25/2013) [-]
I'm not taking it as a personal statement that the way I think is wrong or anything :) neither should you with my comment, just providing an alternate look on things. And that's fair enough, everyone enjoys music in different ways for their own different reasons.

If the lyrics aren't something that pertain to my life, so I can connect with them, I just ignore them. The sound of the voice and the rest of the music is what matters anyway.

I study sound engineering, it's pretty horrible when I notice mistakes and thats all I hear every damn time.

Damnit.. I just.. Hate it when I over analyze..

All music is fairly simple when you get down to it.
Edm can be just as complex, but it's usually more repetitive because it is dance music, which does so on purpose. Try producing something sometime. I play guitar and a moderate amount of piano, producing an edm song is 10 times harder.
User avatar #130 to #34 - isenseven (01/27/2013) [-]
I do produce and record music. Not by myself, my brother's a sound engineer, I'm the musician. But it's progressive music, don't tell me that it's difficult to write dance music because it isn't at all. You write 2 or 3 melodies out with a simple chord progression and you can just repeat that for the whole song.
User avatar #136 to #130 - pokemonstheshiz (01/27/2013) [-]
If you're making music that is more than just a few chord progressions, it is difficult.

Not sure what you mean by "edm"

1st note F--->Fa   
2nd note A--->La   
3rd note  G-->Sol   
If you can't read this,it doesn't automatically mean you are musically challenged.   
I bet a lot of people did not get this is because in Eastern Musical Theory(Europe etc)   
notes don't go like C D E F G A B C but Do Re Mi Fa Sol La Si Do.Please show some respect...

I'm European and in instrumentation we use C D E F G etc... and for vocal exercises we use Do Re Mi etc...
I think that's pretty much how it works around the globe.
User avatar #93 to #90 - texasbarbie (01/25/2013) [-]
I live in Greece(meaning in Europe) and we use Do Re Mi etc for everything.I have been studying guitar for 3 years + and we use these everywhere.Both on instruments and vocal exercises(Solfez)

Just show some respect...
User avatar #85 to #83 - corundum (01/25/2013) [-]
I wasn't aware of its use in certain countries as a standard. Excuse me while I spend half an hour on wikipedia.
User avatar #86 to #85 - texasbarbie (01/25/2013) [-]

"musically challenged people", or just, you know, not american.
User avatar #48 to #44 - biomedic (01/25/2013) [-]
why just american? standard notation is universal... hence 'standard' notation.
User avatar #50 to #48 - alexeilvlrussian (01/25/2013) [-]
"Standard notation"... seriously? All of europe would read that as "fa la sol"

Clearly not all of Europe, having lived in the UK my whole life and learned how to read music; I can say I read the notes.
User avatar #54 to #53 - alexeilvlrussian (01/25/2013) [-]
Meh, you guys still use the imperial system, as does America.
#102 to #54 - Womens Study Major (01/25/2013) [-]
Are you dumb? The imperial system has nothing to do with reading standard notation. Besides, most countries in at least northern Europe would read it as F-A-G. I'm Norwegian, so I at least know that for a fact.
User avatar #55 to #54 - biomedic (01/25/2013) [-]
No we don't. We use a weird combination of both, measuring large distances in miles, but short distances in meters/centimeters. And weight in kilograms, and volumes in litres. It's only really the older generation that uses imperial, we were taught to use metric. Don't tell me about my own culture, since you clearly don't understand it.

Meh, you're still the americans of europe.

I'm from Denmark, and i can positively say that the whole of scandinavia read notes as letters: A, A#/B, H, C, C#/Db, D, D#/Eb, E, F, F#/Gb, G and G#/Ab


The whole mixup of the B/H notes was supposedly some drunk guy ******* **** up
User avatar #57 to #56 - biomedic (01/25/2013) [-]
How so?

lol!! you make a good point, but you can find people like that anywhere in Europe.

Ikr!? I wanted to watch my son enjoy his Modern Warfare came but since I'm a Vietnam vet I couldn't stop myself from pointing out inaccuracies and, when the boy was close to losing, shooting him in the head to keep him from suffering.

Oh god. Trying to learn how to produce. Its been like 2 years. I don't get anything. Music may be beyond me.

In my head I've just got this whole universe of music. I just can't get it out of me for a worth a damn.

I actually don't care. I enjoy simplicity, it has a beauty of it's own.

The rhythm for the kick drum in every dance/pop song. It literally has a name, "Four on the floor".
User avatar #118 to #26 - lasmamoe (01/25/2013) [-]
I think that four on the floor is just a drumming term.

Or maybe not, i dont know. But i have never heard it used in a non-drumming situation.
User avatar #127 to #118 - abstract (01/26/2013) [-]
Yeah Four on the floor means the kick is played in that rhythm
#24 - Womens Study Major (01/25/2013) [-]

I compose and record music, so I can't help but notice mistakes in editing and splicing when I listen to music. it can completely ruin the experience for me.
