I can't be the only one who is amazed by the fact that Necrophagist were the first tech death band. Their first album holds up to this day. Especially against bands like Inferi, the Faceless, and others. I'm not super well versed in the tech death history, but Necrophagist blew my mind when I hears theird first album from 1999! Absolutely amazing.

Any other early recommendations? I need them. I've been on a Darkthrone and Emperor binge so I need some more good tech death in my life.

Thank you.

Atheist and Gorguts are great. Atheist has a bit of a jazzy feel, while Gorguts are straight fucked.
I'd add Nocturnus. Their album The Key is pretty technical, and has a cool spacey vibe. And of course, if you aren't familiar with Death you should check them out too. They got pretty technical starting with Human.
Check out Maruosa

What about metal that's generated purely by tech and streamed 24/7?

What's a good collection of ways to learn music theory that aren't ebooks?

Yeah I just looked at his channel and there's pretty much nothing there for what OP's asking.

Seconding Adam Neely and 8-Bit Music Theory.
Also check out The Mangold Project, I recommend this over the other two in fact, because the goal is teaching actual music theory concepts.
Likewise, Signals Music Studio talks about music theory with the direct goal of instruction, and I find I learn a lot more from these two channels, by also pausing and playing around with the concepts, than I do from Adam Neely or 8-bit Music Theory, who are great, but more an "interesting watch" than what I'd say is quality instruction.

8-Bit Music Theory videos are usually about some oddity or obscurity of theory and I'll often throw one of those vids on when I'm totally dry on ideas and try to base a track around whatever weird shit that dude was on at the time. It usually works out pretty well!

I officially quit trying to learn guitar.

After 9 years of trying, really trying, I finally got fed up, I did the only thing my hands are good for...

I punched a hole into my guitar.
And now i'm leaving it by the curb. It's still playable, it just has a fist-hole in it.

Fuck trying to learn music. I'm only good at bashing things.

Maybe your problem is guitar. I hate guitar. I played guitar for years. I never found it enjoyable.
Then I got a free piano that I somehow managed to get delivered to the house I was living at. Complete game-changer.
I hated how playing things on guitar was like this multi-step process: press the string, pluck the string. And how playing various different notes required various different techniques, it all just pissed me off and was incredibly un-fun.

Piano is great for bashing. To hear the sound you press the key. That is it my dude. It's percussion, it's melody, it's harmony, it's all laid out without weird edge cases, so going up a scale from bottom to top your hands are going to be doing the same thing as you go up.

To me, guitar is garbage, but don't give up music, find an instrument that suits you.

Did you take lessons? Have you ever had any formal music training or were you trying to figure it all out on your own? Even just a couple of lessons with tutors can enlighten you to all kinds of musical knowledge, tips, and tricks that you didn't know before, and really jump-start your growth.

Also, be aware of what your goals are in music. Do you want to record, or perform, or neither? I consider myself a musical hobbyist with no real desire to put on a show or make a record. This allows my creativity/expression to feel free and without expectation.

Anyway, you shouldn't give up on making music entirely. I can't stand trying to play guitar either (I'm a woodwind player). If you can rent other instruments, try that. None of it is easy. That's why hardly anybody actively does it.

So I just spent the last few hours emptying my old tracks from my loopers into my laptop, started organizing the files, and updated the firmware on my loopers so I could actually make some new music like I wanted. But now I'm sitting on here instead of actually doing it.

Discipline and creativity are two integral parts to making art, but at times they seem to be standing in direct opposition to each other. So I was wondering how you guys merge these two seemingly foreign (to each other anyways) concepts and what strategies do you use to get over that hill of procrastination that happens between you wanting to create, and actually getting off your ass to do it.

>pic related, it's half of my super loop rig (well the picture isn't one I took of my actual looper but it's the model I have)

>it is something you want' to do not have' to do

That is not true my friend. There is a fragment of the ineffable inside me and I can only begin to express it through a series of sound and light that I am not quite skilled enough to make, yet. I do have to do this. I'll get there someday, I just gotta keep up with practice. Sometimes I get distracted talking to y'all beautiful people around here when I should be practicing my shit.

I mostly meant it as a general music related procrastination thread though, I'm sure I'm not the only one who gets distracted when working on a track.

I haves about 300 loops ive made, and only about 40 tracks, with maybe 5 mixed to master?

I just get distracted by fucking with other stuff in my DAW

I'm sitting at 200 right now with maybe about 25 tracks, and 6 or 7 mixed to master. I recently got some new equipment to so I've been learning the ins and outs of that instead of creating things I want to save, but I think it's time to get back to recording real stuff. My last loop felt really good and it's been a minute since that happened.

Music streaming is bullshit

So how to fix it? What if we create a multicasting network that works exactly like broadcast radio, except instead of IP addresses, we have virtual frequencies? We then give people a randomized name like the old stations, hook it up everywhere, and make it the standardized way to broadcast music. It's like the old radio model on the new streaming model except it's multicast, so no custom streams, and that's the point. When things are algorithmically engineered the way they think you want, you get pidgeonholed and stagnated into the musical hole that they think they can use to make money off of you.

If we do it this way, you can still have custom private streams like Spotify, but we essentially revive the old-school radio network and expand it to make advertisers have to compete for popular stations instead of having stations have to suck the dick of advertisers just to make ends meet.

I think you should make this thread in /prog/ or at least /tech/

afik multicast routing is not available for any pleb over the regular Internet. Tech giants use it over their own network to distribute content across their own networks.
Multicast routing is an incredible DDOS vector so in order for you to use it you have to own the network.
If you really want to do it you may try contacting a community mesh network in your area.

you're absolutely right, I thought it was the future, I drank the koolaid, convenient and you discover so much new music i thought, but now in the past couple months a dozen or so bands I really like got taken off streaming services because of licensing bullshit

and the irony that latest one was Gang of fucking Four is palpable, fuck those sell-outs

holy shit fuck streaming I'm done, back to private trackers for me, idk where to even start since I haven't done this shit since what.cd days but god damn I'm buying a 10 terabyte hard drive and starting immediately, they almost got me to obey the law for convenience's sake but then they went and ruined it

So I'm a tasteless piece of shit and made another unnecessary Death Grips Mashups, using Tobacco's Fantasy Trash Wave and DG's Klink.

I used to make music regularly and was big into production but kinda gave up on the dream and havent touched anything in like 8 years and kinda felt that old itch to do something so I took the easy road did an awful mashup to get warmed up again.

It still needs some work I can only imagine but I've heard 5 million times while working on it and can't get outside of my repetition bias. There's a few tempo problems here and there that I'll find eventually but here, take this, it's not safe to go alone.
