Hi all :)

So I was wondering, what genres of music do you like? Rap, metal, classical, etc.
And more specifically, favourite artists and songs, if applicable

I like electronic most, with pop, rock, and rap coming up second. Deadmau5 is my favourite electronic artist and one of my favourite overall, with my favourite song by him being I Remember
I also like Ruelle (a less-known artist), who uses an interesting combination of some electronic, classical, and alternative rock
And I listened to Eminem a lot a while back. Not much anymore, but I really enjoy NF

I've never liked classical much, personally, and despise country :p

Up to this time, I have no idea how people could like a genre. It is implying that they strictly only like those genres and probably like whatever music in that genre. Not to mention, I probably disagree with many genre definitions or just confused if certain music falls into a certain genre. With that said, I like music because I like it. I can probably mention some of the music in a given genre but that does not mean I like that genre in particular.

However, humans like to categorize things, and I would categorize mine based on the majority of the music I like. Usually, my source of the music I like is
  1. Japanese pop music (Mainly the source is anime op/ed, and this has many genres on its own. But sometimes I also discovered them from YT recommendations)
  2. J-Pop but off-vocal version. Sometimes (I think) the vocal just gets in the way of me enjoying listening to the instrument composition.
  3. Instrumental (mostly orchestra, epic orchestra, or just modern synth)
  4. Game OST (again, this also has many genres on its own)
  5. RPG Maker MIDI Music resource from a various source I've compiled over the years (Yes, I do listen to them time to time)

Classical for me, although I still hold some respect for jazz (quite different, but still musically complex and interesting).

My super big music background and education makes it hard for me to enjoy listening anything apart from that. When I hear music, I see the "music sheet" in my head and follow along (this makes it near impossible for me to study seriously with music lol), and most songs are repetitive with nothing interesting (4 chords... and usually only 3 sometimes lol).

Favorite composer: Gustav Mahler. I have tremendous respect for that conductor/composer. He is probably one of the greatest orchestrator that ever lived. And it's not true that his work only has influence on the "intellectual" musicians, his work even reaches "the regular people" since it's the foundation of modern film music. Many of his melodies have been copied (public domain so it's fine) by very well known popular songs.

For example, Symphony 3 movement 1, second theme, part 1. It's the same as "Be our Guest" from the Beauty and the Beast:

I love energetic Synthwave, old good Techno, some Industrial pieces, very few Psychedelic Trance and even less ambient pieces of electronica. You got the picture.
As for more analogue sound, well, classical music, like Tchaikovsky makes me feel very nice.
More hard sound on analogue? Well how about Doom, Stoner and Psychedelic Rock?
For instance:
  • Pink Floyd (favorite band)
  • Monkey3
  • Beyond Black Void
  • Sleep
Sounds trippy and it is, but I say a huge NO to drugs and a huge yes to Beer and Rum.

Recently a greek band released a record that was interesting.
the specific song made me feel like WTF this is incredible after 6:30

I'm so eclectic. Depending of what I do, I will humm something, find it here or in a soundtrack and get my neighborgs tired of the same tune after a few hours. (Sorry, traditional animated cartoons backgrounds)

In the strangest turn of events, my animations now live in the characters folder, and my character images now live in the pictures folder. It's a complicated world, but weirdly a more resource efficient one. :LZSexcite:
Did you know that we use robotic spy animals to learn about how different species behave in the wild? We're only a step away from robotic spy humans, and then Terminator. :p
Not being able to do a commission/request after all and having to give back the money is so heartbreaking.

Sometimes I'm just way too eager to help people out and suddenly find myself in a very deep hole because I'm not gonna be able to finish it. I really hope I don't come across as unprofessional to these people and in general. =n="
