Style and Genre?
    #2448720 - 03/18/04 09:14 PM (13 years, 1 month ago)

Are these seen as important to the non-professional? None of my songs sound like any of the others. I like to travel in somewhat unchartered territory. If I were to cut a CD (for fun & friends - a dream of mine that I am fast approaching), yet it had no central theme or coherency or appeal to a certain audience, is that  bad thing?

Exploring has more interest to me than playing a certain style. I find it nearly impossible to categorize my compositions except as Electronic Experimental (or mushroom-induced soundscapes :gd_icon:) which is basically a catch-all phrase


The proof is in the pudding.

Maybe having no coherent central theme is your coherent central theme... :wink:

There is obviously some consistency, in that they are all song that you like. I dunno, it's like curating an art exhibition, or collecting poems or short stories for an anthology, does the central theme have to be obvious? In regards to the specifics of "style" and/or "genre," those are simply two of the facets on the crystal -- why should they be the determining ones?

Sorry, I'm tired and frustrated with a work thing, so I'm babbling. Carry on. As you were...
