RE: AW: [LSDj!] CHIP MUSIC IS DEAD . Manifesto
- dogmatech, sam: well put!
chipmusic will not die. i dont think that any music genre can actually die.
every music genre will allways have its followers and offsprings.
Just look at the metalscene, how many times have it not been copied
and mutilated by pop-culture?
But the guys in the metalscene dont care about the pop-shit they just
keep doing there thing and getting better at it all the time.
i think that at the same time as a genre/style gets copied and mutilated by
some ppl it will also be more purifyed by others.
thus creating a broad spectrum of music for ppl to listen to and
evolving the music.
wich is a good thing right?
i wouldnt worry about hiphoppers using arpeggios or raw waveforms or
if they want to mix musical styles, sure. its ok.
its ok to mix polka with grindcore and sing with a robotic voice or
you can mix anything as long as you dont steal anybodys material.
thats just plain wrong. (timbaland..)
just choose the music you want to listen to and let people exeriment
their little hearts out!

I would not regret my bizarre manifesto anymore!
I became adicted to the great Bud Melvin's song!

here called GOTO START Level 2 . Also, receptors, n-.-m, role model, covox,
raeuberhoehle, tb, tobiah, nitro2k, dr blowfins, neotericz and a lot more sounded in my
I'll post some pictures soon.
