It's the laziest type of music to make, because all you have to do is go to VGmusic or something, rip midi files, and then pretty much all the work is production.Not sure if you're using techno as a broad term for electronic music likes or literally techno like a 303 with a gate on a 4x4 kick cause if not you're only 50% correct.
Most of the stuff posted on the audio portal is lazy. You can hardly get lazier than techno
Alot of electronic music can be a producers nightmare (if you create all your own sounds and everything) it takes just as much work as creating a 'real' song if not more because not only are you composing it, but now you're designing your own instruments.
But if you just meant the actual genre of techno then yes, you're right.
Techno and basshunter sound-alikes can lick muh ballsack.
Yes, I'm specifically talking about techno, and pretty much "dance" music in general. Some of my favorite pieces of music are electronic, and there a few artists I really like who either did electronic music at one point, or that is all they do.
The whole making your own instruments and sound part of electronic music does appeal to me, though I will still make fun of the person who spends more time getting the correct tone to collapse a colon than actual composition. Tone can make or break a composition though.
Want proof? Just submit anything with midi instruments. No matter how bitchin you might think the piece is, it is hard for people to look past tone. =p
Unfortunately, I've never had any good production equipment. I'm poor, and Santa left me a lump of coal. =(
