I am not a musician, but i dick around with a keyboard / daw sometimes.
I discovered these notes combine really well for a morbid / ominous sound. (picture related)
Is this an actual scale / mode?
As much information as possible is helpful, thanks.

I agree with the last sentiment, and really when I play or compose something I just go by ear, as that is the final say. Theory can hold you back in a lot of ways, but it can also help you understand what you just did, and help you find new openings and paths to explore, where you can use your own innate rhythms and ear to create something your own.

I'm just going to think of modal music as more arbitrary, and just 'random' rules established to serve the mode as you said, whether that mode is a ceremony of sorts, or whatever. The mode more reflects the culture and their way of life, a mode of living. Or maybe that's too off the deep end and missing every point.

OP, you've stumbled across a wonderful series of notes. It goes by many names and has been used in a variety of musics for a long ass time.

Jews know it as "Ahavah Rabah" (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jewish_prayer_modes)
Muslims know it as "Maqam Hijaz" (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arabic_maqam)
The Berklee Method calls it "Mixolydian b9 b13 chord scale" (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Berklee_method)
And most music composers and scholars (like myself, look at my penis), just call it Phrygian Dominant, Freygish, or simply the fifth mode of the harmonic scale. Some Jazz Musicians call it "2 flat 6" according to wikipedia, but I've never heard that. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phrygian_dominant_scale)

I cannot in good faith let you come to believe this. Tonal music implies the common-practice harmonic theory established in the 17th and 18th centuries (roman numeral sequence of tonal fuctional harmony: I-iii-vi-VI-ii-V/vii*-I), whereas modal music doesn't apply functional harmony as we know it in tonality.

ctrl f
harmonic dominant
phrase not found

yeah it's the fifth scale of the f harmonic minor scale. if you start on c. resolves to f minor generally, maybe tritone sub to b major but that sounds like a bad idea

I've always thought to teach harmony and improv from the understanding of the connection between modes and chords, because that's where chord progressions come from. when a song stays in a key it is using chords built in that key for the most part. deviations are implied key changes or sort of retrospective chord changes that make use of the fact that the chords exist in different keys. sharps and flats get added one black key at a time when moving up fourths or fifths.

major chords are built on alternating major thirds and minor thirds, minor chords are built on alternating minor thirds and major thirds, augmented have only major thirds, diminished have only minor thirds.

there's also other scales like chromatic(all of the notes), whole tone(all whole steps), symmetrical diminished and symmetrical dominant(which alternate between whole steps and half steps or vice versa).

Does anyone know what the drum being played in this track is? On the wikipedia article for this album Ken Winokur is credited for "percussion" on it, and Ken Winokur is apparently a member of this group that does film scores (Alloy Orchestra) but I couldn't track down exactly what instruments he uses or what this could be. I love it though.

This is the album it's from, great music from a great band: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XWKYxhyKja4

I'm also very interested in percussion instruments in general, especially drums, so share cool things if you feel like it

Sounds like some kinda conga played lightly and muted with the hit, or maybe some Indian hand drum. Cool track

Last week I decided to make a trek along the ocean and play guitar with all my gear set up and play for realz. I had done some occasional beach / anywhere jamming and even played with some vagabond types. Some sessions were loads of fun.
This past week however, upon setting up and playing for a while, had people coming up with dollars and setting them on my amp. $6 in one day wasn't too bad especially since I was more so coming out to be heard and not really for the change. The next day i came back and played at the same place but this time with my pedal box open (hinting on change). I made over $20.

I feel super excited about this. For once in my life I have done something worth doing, having people hear me, connecting with like minded people, and made some money. It isnt much but this means a lot to me.
SLAYER y'all.

I feel like shit when I think of myself as a "rapper" almost feel embarrassed, I'm 23 years old and still trying to rap.

I'm real good at it but feel like I'm getting too old for this shit, I still keep at it though just not public about it, I go raw behind closed doors.

I picked up a guitar been playing for 2 years now I'm getting real good at it even trying to sing but no matter what I keep going back to instrumentals and writing.

I want to keep up with hip hop but feel no valid drive for it and when I do try to quit, it just keeps coming back.

People make me feel like shit some times just cause I rap, I've been told it takes no talent to rhyme once and to pick up a real instrument, that was from a guy at the music store when I bought a microphone.

I don't speak of me rapping anymore as I use to, I think people now think I don't do it anymore, feel like if I do try get back out there I'd just get shade thrown at me again grow up type vibe.

This whole genre helped me a lot ever since I was a kid it's almost imprinted; programed in my head to bob to beats and try to lay a little rhyme over it.

Thanks for reading just a little rant

Cant give much advice on getting your drive back, thats gotta be a you thing brother. I will say that guy who told you rapping takes no talent is probably a rockist douchebag who think ACDC and Metallica are the best things to happen in music, so don't listen to the opinions of people who would dismiss an entire diverse and beautiful genre like hip hop, this is coming from a rock fan too. The way I see it lead vocals=melody instruments, backup vocals=harmony/accompaniment/chordal instruments and rapping is basically voice percussion with some microtonal singing here and there. Jokes aside about drummers having no talent, drumming and ergo rapping i think takes some serious talent and sense of rhythm and flow amd you should be proud of your skill. Best of luck man

Ever since I got into electronic music, I've constantly been told what I do "isn't music" and that I should "pick up a real instrument."

Fortunately, other peoples' opinions are irrelevant, especially when they're musically close-minded and retarded, like that guy at the music store.

>feel no valid drive for it and when I do try to quit, it just keeps coming back.
Sounds like it's just something you have to do. It's just inside you and you need to do it, that's how it is with me. Just do what your artistic instincts want you to do, dude. We are fucking music makers, we are better than everyone else.

I listen to a lot of psy trance, and it's not uncommon to sample a lecture on psychedelic theory and play the key points back verbatim. At this point, I could probably quote those lectures word-for-word just by how many times I've heard them. My thought is: what if there were a genre where academic lectures on other topics, say physics, were sampled instead? Is there any interest in this sort of thing?

It wouldn't have to be a "genre", just as how those psytrance tracks with sampled lectures aren't really a distinct subgenre from any other psytrance. First thing that comes to mind is those Symphony Of Science songs
lots of good ones, I think it's maybe more common than you think in other genres too
