If you even knew a small amount about music or bothered to pick up an instrument you would realize that electronic music is only similar in the way that its a frequency...I listen to everything and literally every fucking type of music that stimulates my brain which music is supposed to do BUT electronic music is heavily borrowed from everything and it doesn't have much creativity or "soul" in it. For someone that claims to stand for your music, I'm surprised you haven't found or realized that electronic music does follow a strict set of frequencies and beats.
Shame the fuck on you mod, do your research, and not ones that support your illogical opinion, which is what this is...opinion
I see what you are saying...but
>implying all music isn't/wasn't heavily borrowed.
>what you define/interpret as "soul" is subjective
>implying electronic musicians never use MIDI instruments
>not realizing electronic music and acoustic music "borrows" in different ways
If an artist creates the exact same painting twice, first using a paintbrush and watercolors, then second time using mouse clicks and photoshop, does one painting have more soul than the other?

this isn't a debate,this thread topic is opinion based "electronic music sounds the same". but electronics music really doesn't use notation ergo music theory

I'm 99% chance you are trolling, but in the %1 chance you really are that ignorant, and just for the sake of taking the bait, what you say is wrong on several levels.
Notation =/= music, sound is music. Notation is not sound, it is a way of visually dictating sound.
saying you need to use traditional sheet music to explain/communicate music theory is about as intelligent as saying you need to know japanese to explain/communicate mathematics. Two different languages that are equally capable of communicating the same ideas. Piano rolls have been in use since the late 19th century, they can communicate anything sheet music can do, I dare you to prove me wrong.
"bleeps and bloops" have frequency, volume, and occur in a certain time and therefore they can be successfully dictated through both sheet music and piano roll/midi notation. Please, feel free to state otherwise though.
