Has anybody else thought of dubstep and electronic music in general a return to the baroque period of music?

I mean it has a very grounded bass line. The mood really never changes. Has long ornate passages. I mean all thats missing is a good fugue...

And everyone loves a good fuguing tune

Does dubstep use the principles of counterpoint? Does it take a main theme and elaborate upon it?

long ornate passages that consist of professionally synthesized sounds similar to that which people who don't really know electronica try to make with their mouths when imitating electronica, yea.

electronica isn't a thing

dubstep is a bad example but a lot of anti-dub and downtempo does do some pretty interesting melody lines

and owl challenger does a lot of passages with expansion on generic classical music

still not a good example but it's not the dumbest thing that's been said on MT even today

i like dubstep. and i love baroque music.

but there's a lot more (and i do mean a lot) to baroque music than ornate passages and a grounded bassline.

as hail said, kudos for making an observation, it's actually one of the more intelligent things i've heard on MT in a while. but as smiley said, i'm going to go with a resounding, emphatic 'no'.

I know. Just figured I'd ask about the "foxes" anyways. I thought you might have had a "cunning" reply haha.

Doesn't really mean anything. I've heard dubstep remixes of Elton John songs.

Good ones, at that.

Doesn't mean Elton John is secretly dubstep or vice versa. It just means that talented musicians can take a melody or harmonic structure and put it into any number of different musical contexts.

Well, you know what I always say, "don't do anything half ass, go for baroque"!

In fact, this thread gives me a great idea, a "go for baroque part night". Powdered wigs mandatory.

What a fun night of guffaws with the local nobility that would be. Come one, come all! Crack out your lutes and harpsichords, we'll play triplets and trills until dawn. Perhaps even bake a cake or three for the peasants....

I'd suggest holding the affair at the local church, but the only one with a pipe organ is now a mosque. (Unless they junked the pipes as scrap metal)....

No.

Counterpoint is "the relationship between voices that are harmonically interdependent (polyphony), but independent in rhythm and contour."

Everything in dubstep is a slave of the beat. Independence in rhythm and contour != dubstep.

As far as I'm concerned it's an irritant because my neighbours like to play it from their cars at "Christ sake it's far too bloody early for that" o'clock.

Musically - it's an EDM subgenre.

Although - do I detect irony in your question?
