I'm saying Classical music influenced many genres. as Classical was influenced by genres before it, and so on. Blues also influenced many genres, and came from the slave trade, so, yes, every artist has influences, you can always trace it back to something before it.

Classical music was a natural progression from some of the Medieval music that came before, however, it was quite possibly the first western genre of music to standardise the rules of music, to create what is now known as 'Music theory', so in that sense, classical is the music upon which all western music is based on.

All western music? What are we talking about here as for western? The native americans were there first, the so called americans were all europeans plus we aren't only talking about western music with influence here. I'm pretty sure that asia had their own kind of music before too that also progressed into something else.
I still haven't seen them credit anyone.

another way to think of it is "classical to jazz to blues to rock to rap" seeing that rap used to use rock songs as the music part of their rap and as omnomnominator said, classical is also from many other influences. It was basically taking all the good things from the era's before it and making specific rules behind them. If you took any band class or have watched any musician play, no matter what genre, they count off on that 4/4 beat and keep that beat (there is a reason behind head banging). The only real differences in songs/genre are general tempo, instruments, and notes which is what makes up the style. and I know there is a step between classical and jazz but I can't quite remember it but I had to watch a 12 hour long video series on jazz for my marching class and it did indeed state that classical was the start of western music. Which the western world is not always referencing the Americas. If you lived in the classical era the western world was in fact Europe.

Often Rap has hooks, often based around the Major scale, though Minor scales are very common in melodies used in rap, and a steady 4/4 rhythm is kept throughout, all of which would require at least a basic knowledge of music theory, which Classical popularised.

If you study this shit, then you're pretty stupid to think so. Clearly each genre has it's own history and it didn't all come/got influenced by or from classical. You speak of classical as if they invented sound, screw you.
Give credits to the birds and other animals, they are basically the ones who invented music.

All Western music is, in some way, influenced by Classical. Yes, the Tribal drum rhythms and the like influenced Techno, however, Techno is much more than just drum rhythms, there are also hooks and melodies, which were crafted with knowledge of music theory. Now, sit the fuck down, and don't talk back to me, cunt.
#372 - omnomnominator (05/26/2012) [-]
Because every kind of Western music uses music theory, which Classical Music popularised, so they would have heard music that uses that theory and whoever wrote the instrumentals would have had to have a knowledge of theory to make proper, functional, commercial music.
#373 - tylosaurus (05/26/2012) [-]
You say you study this shit? You're really wrong there. Not all music is inspired by classical music, you say it as if they invented "beats". Techno is far from classical. How about old tribe music? Using the australian instruments, the spiritual dances and instruments that the native americans used?
that's a load of bullshit.

None of you know what the fuck you're talking about and should just fucking stop.

Getting a classical piece and re-making THE EXACT same piece .. or taking parts from many pieces and making a "new one" , is not called influence .. its called copying .
I WAS a musician aswell . I just given up , because the people now days dont listen to music .. they listen to dumbster shit ...
Get a firecracker , put it in a dumbster with some more shit to make more noise and people will listen to it if you say its made by deadmau5 , and you know its true .
After i gave up on been a musician , i became a painter , this is my latest work .
I call it "Cows Grazing in open field "
IB4 you ask "Were is the field ? " They ate it .
IB4 you ask "Were are the cows" They moved to another field .
