Learning to make music
    #4051904 - 04/13/05 09:06 PM (12 years, 5 months ago)

Im interested in making music with computers. Electronica kind of thing. Well I was wondering where to start, my parents are willing to invest into my studies and I plan to take advantage of that. First off, are there any institutes where I can take courses on learning to make music on the computer? And if you were in my wealthy situation, what equipment would you buy to get yourself started? I know im not gonna be able to make any Sphongle kind of stuff for now, but I like DJ's and stuff like that, I thought it might be a good time to pursue an interest. Your help is greatly appreciated.

get yourself a copy of fruity loops. its probably the easiest program for a beginner, hey I still use it myself (only because i have no drummer).

I dont know of any institutes that will teach you how to make electronica type music, however there are many universities that offer degrees in music and sound recording, etc.

of course, with those, you'll only learn technical shit. no one can teach you to be an artist.

you'd be much better off learning to play an instrument. a guitar teacher can teach you how to play guitar, but then you're on your own for writing music. just like there are teachers who can teach you to use certain programs, but not neccesarily how to create music with them.

music is all about timing and differences of pitch. I say you should take some piano lessons or something.
If you dont develop a musical ear and learn some basics, music will be nothing more than a very frustrating hobby.

hey man just fuck around. theres plenty of schools you can go to in order to learn how to make music. you would be aiming at audio production and song writing rather then formal training in playing an instrument. i myself make music for a hobby, i play some instruments and fuck around with some more electronic stuff on my computer. i use reason 2.5 and a 24 key sequencer. if your making music thats not gonna be recorded from live instruments its the same place regular live music is gonna go anyway. live music gets made, that it gets produced. with electronic music, the boundaries between playing the music and producing it kind of gets blurred i guess since you could do it all on the computer. don't be afraid to implement live instruments and sample live instruments. just fuck around man.

Get Cubase or some other sequencer/multitrack system and VST instruments + sample CD/DVD:s etc. You will learn to operate the "real" software and
it will sound much better than fruity etc. You could try studying something involving studio engineering etc. but I don't think you can just go somewhere and learn to make "electronika", sounds absurd.


--------------------
when you're watching television the higher brain regions (like the midbrain and the neo-cortex) are shut down, and most activity shifts to the lower brain regions (like the limbic system). The right hemisphere is twice as active as the left, a neurological anomaly. The crossover from left to right releases a surge of the body?s natural opiates: endorphins, which include beta-endorphins and enkephalins. Endorphins are structurally identical to opium and its derivatives (morphine, codeine, heroin, etc.).After just 30 seconds of watching television the brain begins to produce alpha waves, which indicates torpid (almost comatose) rates of activity.
