Gilmour is fucking amazing, Jimi is fucking amazing, these are given facts to pop musicians. I do not doubt that you recognize this. What I'm curious of is what you consider to be talent, so tell me, what is talent? Show me what you think talent is. Im curious.

The Audio Forum is about the production of music, not appreciation. Besides, this is just going to turn in a giant flamewar eventually.

Thanks to people like you, it will totally turn into a flame-war. How is it not logical that music creators should appreciate music as well? I reason music creators are the best appreciators of music. Why does every topic i make turn into an arguement about what is and what is not appropriate in the audio forum? I'm talking about audio, SHUT THE FUCK UP!

Syztm is right, this is a forum for the discussion of audio creation, NOT listening and/or appreciation, and this thread falls under the latter.

Chill out, and take it to general.

Ok, well, I dont really get that one...maybe an attempt at being facetious? To each his own I always say, if you dig it, more power to you. I was looking for particular performances though, you just kinda gave me a list. This seems to exemplify Merzbow, correct me if I'm mistaken - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QbBBczzDe CA. Personally, sounds like noise to me, but perhaps thats the point?

Right out of the rules, conveniently stickied at the top of the forum and conveniently titled, "New To Audio? Read This First!"... which you should have read:

The emphasis is firmly on the creation of music rather than listening and appreciation.

I personally think that this is a great idea for a thread, but the title is fairly ambiguous.

As far as the rules are concerned, I believe that this thread has potential merits. Seems to me like a great way of sharing inspirational ideas and techniques. I think it goes a little bit further than simply the "appreciation of audio". Maybe a little outside influence will help to break up the incestuous, tight knit, stuck up attitude of the audio forum a little?

we can dream huh?

I'll leave this thread open for a while longer so we can deliberate over whether it should stick around or not. I can't see the harm, as long as people respect the bbs rules and don't use it as a spam dump.

To be honest I don't see how this thread goes further than a music appreciation thread - it's just here to compare music artists and appreciate their work. I think it should be in the General Forum, or at the very least in the Audio Forum Lounge.

It says clearly in the rules that threads like these don't fit in this forum and to be honest I don't want to see threads from people who never made music in their life talking about mainstream artists like Skrillex, deadmau5, Justin Bieber and whatnot among threads which serve the purpose of this forum; discussion of music creation.

I'm not saying this is one of those threads, but if music appreciation threads are suddenly allowed in this forum, then we quite possibly may be seeing more of those threads when they usually do fine in General.

That's just my opinion though, and I too don't think this one thread will do much harm, but I still think its place is in the General Forum or the Lounge.

I think that a thread dedicated to studying and dissecting good (subjective, but that makes it even more interesting) music would be hugely beneficial. I am in no way suggesting that we start posting numerous threads about "how awesome the latest Justin Bieber trancecore remix is"

But can you see the merit in having a single thread where you can say "hey guys, look what I found today, isn't it awesome? This is what I think makes it awesome"?

I see a lot of people complaining about writers block these days. If I had writers block (I don't and I never will haha), I would love to have a pool of eclectic, interesting media to try and derive some inspiration from.

You know what, you're right, i deserve that, im sorry. I had a moment...some days are longer than others.

Quarl; Good picks. I'm diggin Millstone, Im gonna have to check some more of that stuff out; its a freaky video dude. A ballarina dancing to metal, who would've thunk it? Dig the keyboards, dig the guitars, super-heavy super-awesome. The neil jacobs one, impressive and kinda interesting, though not my style. Appreciative nonetheless, and a fine example of talent; would come in handy as inspiration for a classic Spanish motif.

Dannyboi; Again with the Brandt Brauer Frick Ensemble; what is that, a german show subbed in japanese? Favorite part: the baby-grand riff that's cut short around 4:30, supercool! Also very cool that they used a standup and a baby-grand in the same piece serving two very different roles. Impressive how they managed to mix all those instruments together, those guys are different.
