Seriously? You are still on that trip? It’s all just music, man
Scab: your comments are really curious to me since “Its all just music” is exactly what I’m saying. If this isn’t clear let me repeat. “Its all just music” is what I’ve been saying, but some folks who visit the Made with Cubase lounge seem to be incapable of understanding that. Its seems for a few, music can only be judged in terms of what they like and not just on the merits of the music itself. Folks who don’t like house music will weigh in slamming a song just because it doesn’t have one chord change per beat or change of time sig like their fav prog rock. Folks who don’t like music written for commercial purposes (POP) will weigh in slamming a song just because its not obscure singer song writer thats moody and dark. Same with hip hop .
TO ME ,ITS ALL JUST MUSIC. Please read that again. ITS ALL JUST MUSIC is how I feel!!!
I just think the best way to move away from this and have the entire section be more inviting to more composers of varying styles ,is to have sub sections to discourage folks from weighing in who arent capable of focusing on the music rather than their personal tastes or hatreds.Maybe they’d stay out of a POP section or Urban section as their off the mark comments would be exposed as just tedious and irrelevant.
Just to be clear on this, there aren’t many styles I really dont like, but the one that comes to mind is Cambodian throat singing. If I saw a posting of this style ,I know I wouldn’t comment but instead leave commentary for folks that have an appreciation.
I hope my point is clear.
