Well I like art rock. I think metric modulation is very very cool.

Besides I like classical music, people ask me why, I can't explain. I just think that they are very interesting.

Pink Floyd, Dream Theater, wow!

Guess I pretty much hate punk rock.

agreed, after going on a music website for information on a festival I'm performing at and seeing "Art music, as opposed to Jazz or Pop, must be performed." I was immediately turned off by the term "art music", as all music is art, and to say what music is or isn't is just absurd. And "art rock" really isn't much different.
#14
I think Art Rock is kind of a ridiculous label. Music is an art form. Rock is a form of music. Rock is art. Art Rock = Art Art. Besides that, Dream Theater is a progressive metal band. The only band I've ever heard called Art Rock is Muse, so all I have to say on the matter is Muse ftw.

I enjoy art rock.

I don't listen to it so much any more since I started composing and have been listening to classical music, but it's definitely better than most new stuff out there.

Tool is prog.


So is Dream Theater, Pink Floyd, and Porcupine Tree
But they're still Art Rock.
Art Rock is really just a sub category to prog.

Those bands aren't art music.
This is Art Music

The difference between Art Music and Art Rock is that the Music is actually Rock.

Who the fuck are you to judge me based on what I like to listen to? Quit acting like a prick. Threadstarter incorrectly labeled several bands as being art music, and I was showing him what the actual genre consists of.

I'm not judging anyone on what they listen to you idiot. I'm judging you on the fact that you only consider certain music art.

Well, technically if you want to call them "Art Rock" you're free to do so. Most people, however, won't know what you're talking about unless you just say "Prog".

Well in that case I'm going to judge you for putting words in my mouth. It's called art music. It doesn't mean that anything that isn't within the art music genre isn't art. Don't assume so damn much just because someone throws around the word art.

I agree that "art music" is a stupid label, but he didn't invent it. He's just talking about the music according to what it's labeled, stop being a douche.

It's a term used to generally define the genre of music that's neither popular music or classical music. They generally use avant-garde synthesis techniques/algorithmic composition, and a lot of their music is..."weird".

IE- composers like John Cage, Rodney Waschka, Larry Austin, Thomas Dodge, Clarence Barlow

That's a dumb term that I've heard applied to bands from lots of different genres.

I've heard Roxy Music referred to as Art Rock and I love them so... yes?
