Anybody here who composes their own music?

Postby Êricō » Fri Jun 11, 2010 8:22 am

I was curious as to whether if there are any people who compose there own music from scratch or at least has created an original idea. I am not professional in this field so I just play the mood, play with a rhythm. If you do compose or create your own music I would like to hear it. No offense to anybody but I just want to compare my music to other people not for competition but for ideas as I need to create music for this project I want to start up.

Don't play an instrument, I make original music through Fruity Loops, Adobe Soundbooth and Reason.

Coelem. Don't bother actually listening, though, it's not really worth it.

I keep meaning to write/record some more stuff, but other stuff keeps getting in the way...that and I'm not entirely sure where my line-in mic is. If I can find said mic and knock down the price of the banjo in the pawn shop the other side of my apartment some, this may change.

that's such a generalization as if it was based off one specific person. just because one person is a "pretentious hipster" -- which is sort of an odd combination of words; since one that is pretentious is more of someone that tries to attract importance (like the new wave of pop-culture-people), and then a hipster would be one that is more independent; which is nearly an oxymoron. it seems to be a pretty biased/stereotypical opinion just to be based off a music taste.

Actually I was just pulling an insider joke for the last.fm bros.

I used to do hip-hop and I'd still want to if the walls of my apartment weren't so thin that everyone in the house would hear me swearing.

Listened to it and I will admit it is considerably better than mine. I never actually learnt music, I just play what sounds good.

I didn't learn too much myself, theory is just something for professionals in my eyes. All you need to know is basic chords theory : Minor /Major and the scales you wanna use. The scale tells you which other keys sound good with your basic note in a specific genere.
I only know the standart 12-note scale and the jazz-scale. Up to know I've only used the jazz scale in my songs (or whatever sounded good to me). Most of the music I like is on jazz anyway (like Pendulum or Funky Breaks in general).

All you gotta do is spend a lot of time and try out different things on the piano.

My music is based around ambience and canon. Music that can be repeated in the background of another sound and builds up through repititious play. Thank you for the tip, helps me with the basics because I have always played the piano like I play the drums because I have actually learnt how to play drums.

I kind of compose my own music. I compose basically any form of music I can think of when the idea is in my head. Although, I generally prefer to compose thrash metal because it is my favorite genre. I don't exactly have a band so I write the lyrics and instrumentals for the songs. My lyrics aren't the best, but I don't really care. I don't have much for recording equipment and I only have 2 keyboards, 2 electric guitars, an acoustic guitar, bass guitar, piano, and planning on soon buying a banjo :awesome: .
