Questions in the title lads

I personally am all about sound. Making it musical is mostly something lame people do with boring sounds because all they care about is stupid stuff like harmony and structure and stuff.

So like, why do you think those things are more important than sound if you do?

Sound, or as people who know what they're talking about say: timbre.

Like melodic, black, death, symphonic, and/or avant-garde metal? Want to collaborate? Message me!

I'd say sound because if your a band and you just make "music" to make it without giving a fack about the sound then you might as well quit.

Shitty question.

Try it differently. Say you are allowed to write a piece of music using X number of instruments, but in a classic setup specific to a certain genre. You can write the piece normally.

Your second option is you get X (the same amount as first example) number of instruments, and you can choose whatever instruments you want. The catch is they all can only play one note. The note may/not be different for each instrument.

Which would you rather use to write a piece of music?

What on earth are you talking about? Timbre is an aspect of music. Sometimes it's the most important aspect, sometimes it's not, but it's never the only aspect. They're not mutually exclusive things.

Now this is a shitty question

My choice would be to be given a microphone. Because all that matters is sound.

You can do stuff with sounds and make music.
But boys will be boys and girls have those eyes
that'll cut you to ribbons, sometimes
and all you can do is just wait by the moon
and bleed if it's what she says you ought to do

Then I guess that would make you dumb, and that's why you're not successful. But yeah, your own personal definitions of words makes for a great thread.

I feel like I"m getting roped into a troll, but whatevs.

As soon as you put your sound in time it's about something else. If you make a decision about how long a sound is going to last or whether or not it's going to be simultaneously heard with other sounds or what sound is going to follow after the current sound, you're making a decision that doesn't relate to sound. You're making a decision that relates to time. That could mean form or harmony or something else, but whatever it is you've made the piece about something in addition to timbre.

Unless your sounds exist in a timeless vacuum where human perception of time ceases to exist there are other aspects to music.

Time

Time is merely a limitation of our bodies and world. You don't say "Well when you play it out of speakers, whatever you've made becomes about air moving."

I was devastated to get tinnitus in my right ear after a GNR concert, with a crew that had no idea what a safe volume for a band is.

I only went because my friends wanted to. What a shitty band to waste my hearing on.

i think i get what youre saying. for example, achieving the massive sound of dopesmoker or making a structured song with nice melodies and harmonies.

then again ive been day drinking, in the case i explained i go for sound..like 60% of the time

Top quality philosophy, bro.

We all know it's actually about the Lord who gave us the Gift of hearing, that we might know the True Beauty all around us. Sound<The Love of Jesus, Who gave His life for you and me.

But seriously your threads are hilarious, cheers.
