A third would likely be (as a HUGE HUGE blanket statement) classical music. That alone covers so much terrain on its own.

What attracts me to music
Loneliness. I like music that, at some point in its duration, sounds fragile and near empty. Using silence, incorporating solos/solis into the repetoire, playing 'nostalgically', etc. I like loud/heavy music and all, but even the loudest music can serve that same purpose.

Loneliness transcends virtually everything. Representing that emotion somehow, whether it be directly or just through some other angular medium, is basically a necessity to the music I listen to. Even upbeat & optimistic music contains some allusion to it most of the time.

Don't really think any 'links' will help prove these points.

Are you attracted to the same musical qualities now as then?
2005 - Green Day
2011 - Drone/Folk Project #409,439

There is change, yes, but I look down upon the me of one year ago more than the me of six years ago. I was so self-righteous and pretentious a year back, and it's much better to look back upon my early adolescence when I was just a nice kid who would listen to nothing but pop-punk and System of a Down on the side. I don't listen to the same styles, but I still get the same awesome feeling when I hear something interesting/that inspires me.
+1
Besides, i don't differ music as genres anymore. they all kinda mixed up

I'm hoping to revive this thread as there were some really great things being said.

I am absolutely on board with your thoughts here. I usually find this is post-rock or ambient works but even some rock acts like the slowcore band, Low have pounded out some beautifully lonely dirges with their amps cranked up to eleven.

It's fully formed with many aspects that suggests that the artist has an ear for music and many genres.
An outstanding track, as are so many from Rick & Karl's vast catalog. Thanks for your thoughts - I think you've hit it spot-on.

As for my own tastes -

Favourite 3 Genres
Jazz (Bebop, Cool Jazz, & Hard Bop, Free Jazz, Third Stream, and Fusion)
Downtempo / nu-jazz
Ambient (kosmische musik / drone / space / psybient / contemporary classical)

What attracts me to music

Headspace. I enjoy sound art that creates a sonic environment for the listener. Whether the work is intellectually-engaging for active listening or, like ambient music, a heady atmosphere in which I can lose myself and escape the troubles of the world.

The original chill out room at The Land of Oz nights at Heaven achieved this brilliantly by wedding the pulse of house music with the blissful, sparse soundscapes of Manuel Gottsching and Pink Floyd. What I wouldn't give to have been there to experience it for myself!

Are you attracted to the same musical qualities now as then?

I graduated HS in 1999 at age 17. I escaped chart-toppers Backstreet Boys, Britney Spears and Limp Bizkit by spinning Jethro Tull and other prog classics in my studio after class. That was also the year Napster launched so I spent the years that followed crate digging and file sharing to further broaden my musical sphere of knowledge.

The aim was the same then as it is now - a never-ending search for strange and beautiful new sounds.

Good thread. I like the format.


Favourite 3 Genres
1. Melodic Death Metal
2. Metalcore
3. Christian Rock

What attracts me to music
Music that elicits emotions is great. There's no better alternative to relieve my anger than heavy extreme metal. It is a form of entertainment. It can get me to be introspective. It can be motivating. It energizes me.
I can feel cool, I can feel bliss, I can feel dark, I can feel rebellious, the spectrum of emotions and the way the music enhances it does wonders.
Lately I've been more cognizant of lyrical content. It's plays a very small part of how I appreciate music because it needs to have a good beat in the first place, which speaks for itself, but it's icing on the cake if it adds something to it.
At this point in time, Norther holds a centerpiece in my musical diet. At first it was the nice solid beat, but the lyrics made it personal. The thoughts of being a serial killer has sprung up many times. I'm a dark person at heart. Norther did a fine job in giving me a handle to attach my thoughts into expression.



Are you attracted to the same musical qualities now as then?
No the musical qualities of music I listen to now are quite distinguishable from my childhood. When I was younger 16 and under, I just cared about a cool or dancable beat. Naturally, Nu Metal and Pop music was sufficient.

Now, I prefer music to be a reflection of me in some sense. That is not to say it has to match my every whim, I can definitely appreciate music that isn't the same basis as my thoughts. For instance, I really like Gothic metal, but it's a rather feminine genre. Although I do have a feminine side and relate to them for the most part, some aspects are strictly female. I can "empathize", if you want to call it that and "get" the music.

"energy" Music to Me is like the Sun is to Life, without Music life would lack the necessary ingredients for our civilization to thrive.

Everyone loves music, that's what's great about it, they're so many genres, artists, even if you're picky there is music for you!

Plus that music can bring even the most unlikely people together.
