Jesus fuck, you guys.
It's actually very interesting texturally, but the abuse of microtones is tedious and serves no purpose other than for "experimentation"
I see no reason to see any use of microtones as "abuse", as they are very much usable notes in the same right as "non-microtones" are.
No one in their right mind is going to enjoy that sound.
Strong "I don't like it so anyone who likes it must be crazy."
The same people who "enjoy" that sound are the same people who "enjoy" this performance "art":
So like I said, no one in their right mind
I enjoy the former and not the latter, so here I am punching holes in your law. LOL
So you enjoy notes that sound completely out of tune to the 99% of humanity that does not know anything about microtones?
Sounds like a drunk person playing the piano with their elbows
But it's strangely cool at the same time
Yeah because I know about microtones.
/hipper than thou
itt elmo thinks the entire world of music operates within 12TET. Yet probably listens to plenty of microtonal nuance in a variety of music he already pretends/claims to enjoy.
listen to some fucking gamelan you occidentalist piece of shit
they actually did use their elbows at some points of time in the performance
The entire world of worthwhile music operates within 12TET. u mad?
I occidentally the entire thread
strong some sort of logical fallacy. can't be bothered to look up which one but i trust my instincts
I implore you to explore some of the shitty metal you like and observe the format of the guitar solo and then trace the history of the guitar solo back until you start to see the commonalities between every modern piece of rock music and the microtonal influences incorporated from American blues and how they permeate everything in modern rock music.
Or the simple fact that you, as a fretless string player, use microtones all the time. Though you're probably not academic enough to peel back the layers and analyze what you're doing - though I'm sure you're playing septimal 7ths all the time, and I doubt you ever play a ET tone when you're playing the third of a chord.
guess elmo never learned how to portamento

that guy could use some piano lessons
All music theory aside. This sounds like shit.
I didn't know people used theory to listen and form opinions on music.
Worst thing I ever heard
I didn't know people couldn't tell troll posts on 5/8.
Plus, it still sounds like shit.
Ya, you can think it sounds like shit, but that doesn't have anything to do with or without music theory. Just wanted to make that clear.
I don't have that much of a problem with it. I'm not sitting here like, "Yeah man. This music is so deep." I just haven't heard a piano tuned this way so the sound intrigues me. I guess it comes down to the texture, like Uncle Damfee said.
anyone who ever sits anywhere and is like "Yeah man. This music is so deep." deserves to be shot
