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.

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.

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

 No.1411

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.

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 Cassettes are totally outdated though; I agree with that.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.

>>1412
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.

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.

 No.1415

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.

What music do you feel gives of a dreamy sound? Yume Nikki's OST is full of music that gives me that feeling, but what other songs can you think of like that?

The one song that comes to my mind is Deltitnu by Aydio. It has an almost meditative quality to it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bIGkICeZa-Q . Any genre is good, I'm just looking for that dreamy sound. Though I can't really put it into words, I feel like you would know what I mean.

Thanks for any suggstions!

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.

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.

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.

 No.1380

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.

 No.1390

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.

 No.1395

>>1392
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.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B6Z2RHExy78&list=PLF05EA82DCCFD284E&index=8
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.

I for myself really enjoy Fail Emotions & Enter Shikari.

Fail Emotions is a clusterfuck. If i could define them with one single phrase "russian metal trance djent clusterfuck" it wouldn't even cut it.

Their first album has some good songs there and there but the formula is still rough so its a kind of cringefest.

Their 2 EP's, Gravity & Speed of Light smoothens out the cringey vague english lyrics a bit and adapts a better sound.

Their most recent album, Renaissance, just says, "fuck it" and goes for a way more metal / djent approach compared to Transfornation & Speed of Light/Gravity. It has a way more metal sound, with electronic elements still there and there.
Overall i consider it the best album of them, and i would reccomend it to a first time-listener.

Then there is Enter Shikari, which is a really good band. They (like Fail Emotions) combine Metal with Electronic aspects, although not to the same extremes as the former.
Take to the Skies is really great.
Common Dreads is a gem.
Flash Flood of Colour is also amazing.

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!
