Goddamn, he has that beard on, I couldn't recognize. So the greatest film composer of all time... can't read music sheet? Mindblow!

And that exactly proves you can make music without knowing to read the sheets.

I mean, why would you even have to know that, if you're making music electronicaly?

I guess it can help with the composing process if you don't compose intuitively. I knew / know a lot of theory and I can also read / write sheets, but I often find myself composing solely by ear instead. My results are often better if I ignore all the theory. But that's different for every person, I guess. Some people need structure.

How do people manage to ALWAYS manage to redirect a thread to debating the usefulness of musical theory? I mean this is seriously starting to get ridiculous.

Thanks!

Anyhow.. You can't appreciate a decent chord if you have 3000 chords. I'm all for the minimalistic approach. :D

Also, it was new to me that pop has chords. I thought it consisted of 3 single notes.

We'll have to agree to disagree on that statement, although I concede that you need to cut down on chord quality when using many chords.

Thing is, though, most of the time, the chords are used to construct a fuller quality to the overall chord structure (Amin7b5 - D7 - Gmin => Gmin/Maj7 w/b13).

In any case, back on topic. I award one Internetz to anyone catching that reference.

Y'allz don't get the joke, Bart is transcribing the Cello's part in the Canon, which, just like his regular punishment, is a short phrase being repeated Ad Eternam.

No credz for no one. :(

No, Canon is awesome. That's why it's not a joke. You don't make fun of the Canon. Ever.
