The music industry has never been worse

Post by Nestor » Tue Jul 02, 2019 7:33 am

I am surprised at the amount of absolute rubbish that there is out there today sounding loud and proud in TV, radio and the internet. Truly BAD music in every way with the most absurd lyrics to follow with. Popular consumer music has become unbearable, annoying, and even disgusting because producers deliberately seem to be searching for human degradation.

In the other hand, there is a whole new beginning in music with people coming back to the “natural”, and this is great, like the wonderful platform of Tinny Desk Concerts, where there are many wonderful musicians bringing the real human soul to life again. But the proportion of things is about 90 / 10. Good music is barely a 10% of the whole lot.

Hey Nestor,

I gave up worrying about this, for different reasons, let me list the two main ones that come to mind:
* many people don't actually listen. they use it like some sort of sonic wallpaper. like nobody's actually paying a lot of attention to wallpaper, right.
* do you still find music that inspires you? great!

So with this in mind, relax, and go listen to some music you like :)

My appreciation came to be because I never listen to music I don’t like at home, but I was curious to see what was going on nowadays, I haven’t follow anything down popular for years, so I got to see a few videos on YouTube about these new pop trends, reggaeton music and the like, and it was a shock to listen to such bad plastic, clinic-like-sounds, very empty music full of buts and nonsense lirycs.

If you want to see what I mean, and you have the needed “stomach” to what this, here you have:

:D yes guys, this Video represents the real thin shit you can press out of a tonestudio! Since melodyne has come to life, we hear that stupid Auto corrected cher Sound, Thx cher, but she bought many untalented singers into music Studios, who See thier chance to preset us their bullshit.

We will see what Dieter Bohlen brings on his New mega CD. I read He sing his top number one Hits by his self! Hahaha, he has a voice like a kazoo but He judges others in his fucking Shows like an asshole.! I bet my ass that his voice will be doubled and autocorrected and added with effective effectchains longer than the chinas wall, but that is the very professionell way today. , I know these tricks, but the Problem is - it will sound not that bad because mankind is already used to this Kind of tricky voices. Dieters Voice will sound good on the record, but on his MEGA life Tour he will always do the same, like he ever did: he poses to his Playback with his guitar in his hand - even if there is no guitar in the arrangement!
He will laugh an smile to his fans and yes this time, he doesn't need to divide money, he is alone!

This World is so bad, and the music? Why should it be better?

OMG I found it: https://youtu.be/BqusYy-4D3s

My DAW has melodyne too, but I have uninstalled it!
:wink: out and about for music production. Are you still configguring your Studio :lol: music first!

at least it is not 100% playback, and no autotune :-) (or may be the sound engineer had fun switching it off).
very professional too, the show must go on as nothing happened :-)
it opens eurovision's gates to almost everyone ;-)
may be planetz people could try to take it over :-D

Music became an "industry" during the tin pan alley era. Music can also be art and art will never die.
