Is that true? It doesn't seem right.
I have Logic 7 on my Powerbook, but haven't tried Logic 8 on a Macbook.
No, that's not true. That's what we call "horseshit."

Oh I came to this conclusion well before I ever saw this thread my litigious friend. The first three pages were only a reminder of why I feel the way I do. Fair 'nuf, my fine friend from the land up north (or at least 30 minutes away) :) It seems a lot closer now that gas has gone down a bit! Oh, a...

God I couldn't even get past page three. Fuck what both of your sides want for the world. All the right and left do is push their own world views and their own morals on other people. If it's not the real church, then it's the church of capitalism, and if it's not that then it's the church of envir...

That list is all fucked up. The interspersing of enharmonic keys creates completely wrong spellings of chords. For instance, there is no F minor triad in the key of C sharp major. There isn't even an F in C sharp major. In D flat major there is an F minor triad, but in C sharp major the chord is an ...

Western art music has it's own tonal language. Many people still use the language, especially in popular music. The thing is if you don't really know the language then you're reduced to saying things like "Ugh." Whereas Brahms was saying things like "Antidisestablishmentarianism." That's not to say ...

The composition exists in the 'state' that the performer enforces on the space and on the audience, no different than how the performer of any other kind of music enforces a state on the space where they perform. When a keyboardist plays a Bach fugue they demand that the audience listen to tonal cou...

Re: 4:33 - True Minimal, or the most absurd thing ever?

No, but this is the first time I wanted to know what all of you intellectuals giants thought of it. Well first off if I had to categorize it I wouldn't call it "minimal," I would call it "aleatoric," as it was a product of his exploration of chance in music. It doesn't get any more chancy than a bl...

OT sections would not help. The problem is not the [OT] threads, but those which start as a useful discussion about a music related topic and end up as flame wars. What would you do with those threads? Shall we move this thread here to an OT section since it has been abused already? Robert But this...

Like I said, while you're looking down on the Top 40 artists/listeners there's some PureData addict with an Arduino down his pants who's discovered a way to control an interactive composition with his testicles and who is looking right over his glasses at the top of your quasi-cultured head.
