OK, this is something that Ryan Patrick brought up in The Old Future VS The New Future discussing our predictions of the future and how they change. What I find interesting is how we depict futuristic music. If you watch films from the 80s music from the future was very industrial dancey, in the 90s it was industrial metal, 00s it was dub step I guess. What's the next genre of the future? Music is interesting to me because it will continue to become more and more electronic but that is only a fraction of the music out there. At the end of the day people still like to hear a singer with an acoustic guitar or piano. We still want to feel a human connection to the music. Dance music is purely primal almost, just a drum beat to move to. It gets us amped up and I suppose it reflects our hearts pumping with endorfins or adrenalin or whatever. Will electronic music get to a point where it finally has a human aspect? I guess it's happening now with more and more live electronic instruments being used. Laptops are pretty common place on stage now. Will the next bands just be 4 guys with laptops? Will instruments in the future just be like smart phones? Will we be able to just download apps for guitars to make them sound like strats or teles or rickenbackers?
On another note. What will the next 'big' instrument be? In the 20th Century it was definitely the guitar. Now synths are pretty popular. What will the next one be? Will they find a way to modernize the bassoon? Or will it be some new percussion creation?
Just some thoughts to consider.
So, this pots and pans add is just for the 'percussion breakdown' at 1:38. I've given a bit before and a 4 beat count in to help syncing. The 4 beats will need to be deleted. This is beat 1. Beat 2 is here and the audio stems are here.
It was actually a really windy, cloudy day when i filmed this. My camera is HORRIBLE sorry. However, I got to use my shotgun mic with blimp and 'dead wombat' (Aussie film-makers will know what I'm talking about) for the audio. Actually really surprised how well it came out.
- A Ship Without A Name (NEW MIX)
I work nights and am surrounded by artificial light a lot. I hate it so when I get home I really enjoy chilling out in absolute darkness for a couple minutes. Like a sensory deprivation tank but cheaper. I was thinking that in a city that is always lit up, darkness could be a commodity. The Flickering lights is because I'm a smart ass :)
Cosmic radiation through dime-store drinking straws
Blisters on my heels that refuse to heal
A black hole aftermath when the room depressurized
All our novels falling from poorly supported shelves
Onto floors I've claimed as my own
There is no comfort for a perpetually broken boy
My broken back, your useless literature
Your discarded gifts, my dead flowers
My sandstone knuckles, your lilac candles
We're a god damn mess, and we're only getting worse
I used to live where the coyotes could get to me
And deer stopped to bow at the sight of my hands
Pulled by my hair through the muck and the mud
Until I ran towards the rising sun, towards you
I've fashioned a crown from the stems of white roses
And the pedals are all turned to rot
What kind of king I am, sleeping on the floor
When you left the door open, it scared me like war
A mouth in the wall that's lost all but one tooth
You could turn the deadbolt, but you never do
And I constantly wonder, how much electricity I must build up
To lay down with you once, and levitate you out of your head
How much electrostatic glow I'd have to project
To keep you safe in bed
