Benito Mussolini's granddaughter made a j-pop album. You've got to check this shit out.


Hmm groovy. The 80's was really one of the best times for music in japan.
She's got a nice voice (nothing too impressive, but not bad along with the rhythm nonetheless) and the band is pretty good. Her accent is slightly strong and annoying though.

I think in general, Italian disco/pop is very simmilar to Japanese music of the same type and time. Italian seems to have been more flashy and bright while Japanese disco was more down-to-earth and romantic and it used more traditional instruments. Clio and MariaTakeuchi are good examples of this. While singing is definitely important, I personally feel that instrumentation is what makes these types of songs. Mussolin's album is as close to a direct blend as I know of. On an unrelated note, I found this really interesting Japanese album that's kind of repetitive, but has an interesting vibe to it.

I personally prefer Takeuchi Mariya. Although Variety isn't my favorite album, Mearsy Beat, Amphitheater no yoru and Plastic Love are by far my favorite songs of her (not to mention she has one of the best english pronunciation I've ever heard on a japanese artist). Sweetest Music and Love Songs are definitely my favorite albums though, September being my favorite song there. There are other goods examples outside of disco though, Matsubara Miki is a good one.
Clio reminds me a bit of those weird electronic experiments so characteristic of Yellow Magic Orchesta while still maintaining that groovy base and sound.
This Yasuaki Shimizu has a slower tempo, I like it.

You definitively should check the first albums of Yamasaki Hako (Specially Tobimasu and Ningen Magai) and also some of Sai Yoshiko (ALL of her 70's albums, Mangekyou, Mikko and Taiji no Yume) if you want to feel the not-so-trendy side of japanese music. Sai Yoshiko in special is EXTREMELY underrated. I've been meaning to make a thread of this and provide translations for their songs but college has been eating my time. Hopefully I'll be able to build my computer this/next week and post it.


I can listen to this, thanks.

I don't know, I suppose I just love it. I always spend some time at the end of my keyboard session playing any piece on harpsichord. I love that dark, baroque-like sound and how those small loops create such a rich harmony.


File: 1509590151429.jpg (292.39 KB, 782x1024, __bobby_barrows_and_edward….jpg)

This might be a bit of a stretch, by a lot of the tracks in the Clock Tower ost have a kind of harpsichord feel to them too.


What do you think about piano reductions?


In my opinion, they sometimes work awfully well, but others it just takes a turn for the worst.
That depends really on the arranger, since some of them try to make their reduction work exactly like the original, which usually doesn't go that well, while others try to actually arrange and prioritize the melody the piano can play while dropping that which sounds terrible.

These two songs have something in common. What the hell is it? Where can I find more like it?


The drumming kind of reminded me of splatoon.

Do you think that there's any benefits to listening to music on the cd or cassette as opposed to from a digital file?


Cassettes and CDs rely on analog electromagnetic prints on their surface, which are then read by hardware and transformed in voltage signals that pass through circuits up to the speakers. It's easy to damage that information and therefore lose it, even by the mere contact with daylight exposure (on prolonged times, of course). Digitally converted sounds, on the other hand, are digital representations (i.e. binary data) of music codified into a specific format, and (technically) shouldn't be modified or lost by corruption, unless you're messing with them (i.e. writing and not reading). The problem of quality relies on whether the format is lossy or loseless. Not to mention that you don't need to fabricate a physical object to hold that information, since it can be saved in virtually any hardware partitioned with modern formats, and it can be copied in mere seconds without the danger of destroying it in the process.

There's a reason cassettes were surpassed by CD, and why we let them die. Unless you're a hipster or a sucker for old technology, there's simply no reason why they could be considered superior to digital.


>Unless you're a hipster or a sucker for old technology, there's simply no reason why they could be considered superior to digital.
If you want to listen to music on your computer you have to turn it on, log in and move your mouse around to find the file or open up a browser and search for it. On a cd player though you can just put the cd in and push a button. Cassettes are totally outdated though; I agree with that. One advantage of physical data storage is that you have total control of that data while anybody could easily copy a file. If you want you to be the only person to have access to something, that's harder to do with digital files.


You can listen to digital music on anything with external audio output and a USB port. Meaning: TVs, home audio systems, radios, ipads/mp3 devices (if they still exist, or whatever their equivalent is), you name it. On the other hand, if you want to listen to a CD you either need a radio with the appropriate hardware (still on the market), a walkman (DEAD), or a computer (you may as well digitalize to preserve the CD), so you're even more limited there than with digital files.

>One advantage of physical data storage is that you have total control of that data while anybody could easily copy a file. If you want you to be the only person to have access to something, that's harder to do with digital files.

Well that's why I said "hipster".


>Well that's why I said "hipster".
I was talking more about security. Anyway, I personally like to physically posses music and really, "own it". I like to pick it up and touch it and lick that shit. You can't lick files anon. You can't TASTE THE MUSIC.


CD is digital audio. Cassette is analog, and really shoddy analog at that. CD will be a perfect copy so long as the physical disc itself isn't damaged, which the same goes for any other storage medium (hd, flash media, etc). Damage the media, lose the file.

CDDA standard is raw (uncompressed wav), 2 channel (stereo), 16-bit, 44.1khz digital audio. There are alternate standards out there with higher fidelity (sacd, dvd-a, etc) but by the time they came out digital distribution had already surpassed physical media so they didn't really catch on.

The tl;dr is that cd *is* a digital file, and higher quality than most mp3s out there. Cassette however, no benefit at all unless you really like lowfi tape noise.

On the other hand, vinyl has a higher signal-to-noise ratio and higher fidelity than cd, so that is still a medium worth trying out if you're really into sound quality. When it comes to vinyl, the quality of the turntable and needle are just as important as the quality of the media. You get what you pay for.

Baroque, Classical, Romantic and 20th Century
Which do you like most? Baroque is my favorite,


Baroque has the best composers that ever existed, in my opinion. I always find myself going back and forth among the others but I always end visiting old Bach and Pachelbel to fill the day.

Felt like sharing this neat little genre. It originates from Black Metal. I came across this gem not too long ago, and can't help but love it. It's dull, but in an oddly comforting way.
My favorite Dungeon Synth artists are Hedge Wizard, Fier, and Depressive Silence.

I tried looking for more information but I couldn't find anything on my first try (and I'm slightly busy right now). Why is this called dungeon synth and what's its aim?
Like, from listening to it, it seems to be trying to emulate medieval music through computed-generated sounds, like what you'd hear in old dungeon crawlers from the 90's (hence the name, I suppose). I can't see where the black metal fits in all of it, but I dig it nonetheless.


Right, nevermind, hit the dungeon synth wiki just after making this post. Disregard that.


That was actually really enjoyable, thanks for sharing it anon.


https://youtu.be/XKSu-wZChcQ here is a good one.


The genre kind of roots from Varg Vikernes. He made one of the first Dungeon Synth albums when he had nothing to make music with but a synth.

I fucking love Yellow Submarine. It's definitely one of my favorite films. So many parts of it are incredibly reminiscent of Yume Nikki. The abstract, dream-like atmosphere, the bizarre creatures and sounds scattered everywhere, the soundtrack, the weird story, it feels so similar. It's practically the movie equivalent to a dream. Thank god those hacks who made the polar express movie didn't get their grubby, Hollywood jew fingers on it. Has anybody else here seen it? If you haven't, you definitely should.


I watched it years and years ago. In a sense, I got exactly what I expected of it, psychedelic shit made by a bunch of hippies. The film is alright on itself but it isn't mind-blowingly awesome, or at least it didn't touch me like that. Of course this was years before I even played Yume Nikki, so that may have a part of it.
Have you seen Kanashimi no Belladona? I feel you're going to enjoy it too.


Obviously, the whole movie is a compilation of independently brainstormed events - the deep ocean sections have nothing in common with the "void" section - just that the transitions between some of those were pretty harsh. I'm not sure if it's just a british thing to ignore appropriate scene transitions or what, but segues are very important to me. Yellow submarine has transitions that are so jolting that they eject me from the experience of the movie itself, and for that reason I have trouble finding desire to rewatch it.

While we're on the topic of atmospheric works, Angel's Egg should also be mentioned. If you try to watch this movie on youtube or crunchyroll or whatever "stream" service that takes a 640x480 compressed to hell VHS rip and upscales it to 1080p to save bandwidth, you are a fucking heretic and should be gassed. It was hand-drawn and painted, and should be given the same respect that a painting in an art museum should. Torrent a decent blu ray rip of it.


Thanks for the info. The jolting transitions from one location to another is probably one of the reasons why Yellow Submarine reminded me of Yume Nikki. One moment you're in this weird place, and in the next you're somewhere totally different.


The two having abrupt scene transitions didn't escape me, I'm just trying to imagine why YN's don't bother me at all.

It could be that it's because I actually see myself as exploring the world with Mado rather than simply watching her explore it, as I simply watch the events of Yellow Submarine take place.

Or, it could be the more simple and likely explanation that in YN, I can take my time exploring an area, and only move on when I am ready, whereas in the Yellow Submarine, whether I want to spend an hour in one of their environments, or if I want to get out of it immediately, I have no choice, and some of Y.S's environments are pretty terrible/abrasive/bothersome/repulsive to me.

Here's another great composer I know about. His name is Paul Goldstein. He lives in Norway and he developed a revolutionary new system of notation. Instead of written music, he just looks at a single sheet of, "instructions", and a picture for inspiration. Here's a little taste.
Before he evolved past traditional notation, in his early primordial state of artistry, he composed his greatest piece to date Wild Daydream. You have to watch it start to finish to fully understand it. The beginning is a bit slow, but trust me, it pays off.
What do you think he's dreaming about?

I desperately need new music!

What I'm looking for:
*Cute music (calm or upbeat) with female vocals
*Good J-pop and K-pop
*Really depressing but calming music
*Post-rock/ambient/creepy instrumental music
*Really kickass techno/electronica

Specify what you like and I'll try to recommend back!
