I've been on a Scriabin binge lately, listening mostly to his études etc., but there's also his overly ambitious magnum opus that he left unfinished, after several decades it was completed by Alexander Nemtin.


Scriabin described his vision of the performance as following:
>"There will not be a single spectator. All will be participants. The work requires special people, special artists and a completely new culture. The cast of performers includes an orchestra, a large mixed choir, an instrument with visual effects, dancers, a procession, incense, and rhythmic textural articulation. The cathedral in which it will take place will not be of one single type of stone but will continually change with the atmosphere and motion of the Mysterium. This will be done with the aid of mists and lights, which will modify the architectural contours."

The music is already impressive by itself, but I imagine it'd be a wholly different level to see it performed live appropriately.

I mostly listened to two albums: 'The Elements' and 'Shock Diamonds'. The former is more melodic, you could say "easier" on the ears while the latter is rather abstract and represents the pinnacle of IDM in my book. Or at least it did 10 years ago, I should have a listen and re-evaluate...

Listened to a bit of Shock Diamonds. I found it interesting, but more in the manner of a cool field recording than music if that makes any sense. Compared to that album, I think these two most recent Datach’i albums are definitely a departure towards a more accessible style.

>and in vorbis too
It's actually opus in the OGG, not vorbis. I use opus due to it being slightly more performant (though marginal at 128k). The main reason I wrap it in an OGG is because this will activate the built-in player on Discord, so people can play it directly from the chat client's page. A raw opus stream would have to opened in another tab or downloaded.

I usually use the following ffmpeg flags to go from lossless to lossy:
ffmpeg -i [SOURCE].flac -b:a 128k -application audio -c:a libopus -vn [OUTPUT].ogg

>Bernard Herrmann - Wuthering Heights - "I have dreamt."
Jesus, this aria is so gorgeous. I almost get into fits of crying because it's such pure and unaltered emotion, which rarely ever happens with any music I listen to (but may also be the case because I was highly instable in the last weeks and today some of the pressure pulling me down went away). I only knew Herrmann as a composer of film music so far and didn't even watch one of the movies), who would have thought that he wrote some wonderful neo-romanticist opera? Never again will I look down on american culture, this opera makes up for all the degeneracy spread.
A shame it's not regularily played at all in the operas and you can't find a video online.
You can listen to the whole thing on youtube though, so do it! I haven't even read wuthering heights but only know a few things about the story and you already get all of the emotions burned into you as through a magnifying glass, it's simply hnnnnng. Really makes me wanna read Bronte's original or at least the libretto. And there's a moby dick cantata from Herrmann as well, which I only listened a bit of but it seems equally wonderful.

Is it normal that I'm not a musical person? All people around talk about groups, albums, clips, there famous bands etc. but I somehow always was far from it and all, like lliteraly all songs and music I listen is from movies and videogames - ones I have other connection beyound songs itself. Even things like Africa from toto - I just liked it on radio in vice city. Never even can remember when "oh I found out %singer_name% and started losten him because I like" since even good for me music - if it has no additional connection to me, it not "ticks" inside to re-listen it over and over.
No. 38478
Yep, nothing wrong with that. Music is just one form of art, you don't really have to have an interest in each and every kind of artistic expression. A lot of people don't like literature, for example, or visual arts. It just so happens that music is one of the more accessible and less time-consuming arts to experience (creating it is a different case, though), and that's why it's popular among a wide audience.
No. 38484
Well, it's not necessarily bad or something but I'd definitely say that you miss out. Sure, one of the things that binds us to music is the emotional connection. Probably it's even a basic condition to enjoy music.
Great music should not need any other context than itself to create an emotional connection to the listener.
I want you to participate in an experiment. Sit or lie down, maybe close your eyes and listen to this (only takes you 11min). Report what you feel afterwards.

Russian rock album from 1989. The first track is very good and I like it very much.
No. 38515
Well I have interest, but I need more than just music itself often. But if this music have it - I almost never tired of it.

Wagner is cassics. As just music for me it's well just "generic orchestral background music" that sounds nice but I has nothing real with this music. If I'll watch whole opera from start to finish and I'll like it, music will clearly will be in my playlists for long time.

Like for example, this - same as some other tracks from DOW Winter Assult in my playlist for like... 12 years?
But I bet without emotional connections, specific scenes and other tracks - namely main Ig theme from game that I also like and which this is basicly "slow background remix" of I'd find this boring.

The Random Picture Thread brought this to mind; it's my favorite Tragically Hip song:

Tragically Hip- Fireworks

The lyrics are brilliant:

If there's a goal that everyone remembers
It was back in ol' 72
We all squeezed the stick and we all pulled the trigger
And all I remember is sitting beside you
You said you didn't give a fuck about hockey
And I never saw someone say that before
You held my hand and we walked home the long way
You were loosening my grip on Bobby Orr

While I'm at it, here's a video of that goal, scored by Canada against the USSR in the 1972 "Summit Series":

It's a pretty good Japanese album from the 80s. Can't put my finger on the genre.

Damn, so catchy.

Welcome, you just entered the world of japanese ambiet/new-age. It's one of my favorite territories in electronic music. I probably spent hundreds of hours listening to it on opiods.
I'll just post some of my fav albums.

>Hiroshi Yoshimura - Flora
Very soothing and harmonic.

>Haruomi Hosono & Friends - Pacific
Goes in a bit more city-popesque direction, but it's wonderfully tropical and perfect for hot lazy summer days.

>Shiho Yabuki - The Body is a message of the Universe
I remember being quite sad one day, spacing out on my diwvan while looking at the outside world getting darker and the lights on the neighbouring houses balconies starting to go on. Beautiful.

>Haruomi Hosono - Watering a Flower
I would call this one "minimalistic ambient". It can quite literally bring you in a trance, no matter where you are or what you do. It's just a few notes being repeated over three long tracks. First one is harmonic and lullaby-like, second one starts to feel dysharmonic and alien and has a subtrack in its second half that in its creepiness can be compared to the Lavender town theme. Finally it ends on an exhausted and melancholic third track reconciling the two first tracks with each other. Take your time to listen to the whole piece, it's really worth it!

>Takashi Kokubo - Jamaica
Basically underwater life ambient.

>Stomu Yamashta - Sea and Sky
Technically as far as I can judge it it's a mix between new age/ambient and classical music. Quite great and rare.

Thanks for the recommendation, this is really nice.

It reminds me most of the music and ambience Kirby 64. At first glance it looks like a cutesy harmless children's game, but there's something unsettling and dark lurking just under the surface. It's hard to describe, but it gives the same vibe as some of the dark children's movies from the 80's.

Or even more accurate: It's like someone took these weird forgotten Japanese albums that pop up on Youtube, and turned them into a videogame. You should check it out.

I'm looking for a particular 2010s slavic meme pop song. Around 2014-2015 there was this music video popular on chans including kraut, it was a Russian or Ukrainian music video, electro style music, there was a girl singing and she was dancing in tights in the video and some other weird stuff was going on, there was also a faggoty looking skinny guy in it that was her age too. It was posted in webm threads a lot. It started with just the girl singing "a muzhy v blah blah" and the chorus was like "i palie" and had the line "lyubit moya" in it, I didn't understand it obviously, that's the best I can do to imitate russian. The band's name was also something really weird and hard to remember, like three letters and some numbers.

I've actually had this album sitting on my hard-drive since it was released back in 2014 but it's really grown on me lately. It's a great album for 'doing-stuff' if you find vocals can get a bit distracting.

From the aesthetics you would get the impression that The Marías are a band for depressed Instagram addicts to feel cool listening to. This is true but there's a beat you can nod along to.

Is this the worst Iced Earth album? It's so cringey, it's like if the American Bear made a metal album, there's even the line "freedom isn't free" in it (The Reckoning). And somehow Tim Owen's voice just doesn't fit on it, it's like he's overacting. I remember it being a big disappointment for me when it was coming out, first Matt Barlow's departure, then this was the lid on the tombstone for this band for me, I haven't really followed their newer material since even though I still listen to the old stuff. I can understand that this was the Bush era and Schaffer was obsessed with 9/11 but this was 3 years later, and an entire album of it? Well, whatever. The Gettysburg trilogy is at least a bit better. I wonder how he looks back on it now.

Don't know that particular one, but I love their older stuff, especially Night of the Stormrider and Something Wicked This Way Comes. I remember listening into their newer albums and not being very impressed, but that might have other reasons. The former mentioned albums are all part of myself growing up and drinking with my pals, so there is a lot of emotional connection for me here. Listening to newer stuff alone at home while already being older and to compare this with their older works is maybe unfair and can't ever be objective. Still, I think that after Barlow left, there was a drop in quality, which is sad, since I liked them a lot.

I also was never a big fan of Demons and Wizards, the Jon Schaffer / Hansi Kürsch (Blind Guardian)-coop-project, which is strange, since I like Blind Guardian even more than Iced Earth. I guess building a supergroup does not necessarily yield super-success.
No. 39771
Personally I love D&W, at least the first album, it has a personal connection to me but I also like the music on its own merits. I think the path of discovery for me was Iced Earth -> D&W -> Blind Guardian, all in a short timeframe, and like you I also like BG more than IE. Anyway the first DW album has the edginess of late '90s Iced Earth/Schaffer with Hansi Kürsch's voice on it, so I love it. Poor Man's Crusade is a real stomper of a song, it reminds me of Another Holy War and Precious Jerusalem thematically. One of my all time favourite albums, even controlling for the memories attached to it.

I just found this song and it's amazing. The Modern Lovers are described as proto-punk, and while this was recorded in the early 1970's, it could easily be mistaken for modern indie rock.

The Modern Lovers -Hospital

tbh, the entire album is worth listening to:

The Modern Lovers - Roadrunner

The Modern Lovers - Pablo Picasso

Love the lyrics on that last one:

Well some people try to pick up girls
And get called assholes

One month later, I'm still captivated by God's Own Medicine.

For those unaware, The Mission is a British Goth band formed by Wayne Hussey and Craig Adams after falling out with Andrew Eldritch and leaving The Sisters of Mercy. In a way, they could be considered (if you're uncharitable) a diet version of The Cult in that they started playing Gothic music that had an edge and would later transition to radio-friendly Hard Rock without going Grunge or Glam. Goth purists would hate them for being sell outs while Hard Rock enthusiasts would probably consider them too wussy especially when compared to Mötley Crüe, W.A.S.P., Dokken or Skid Row. Critics panned The Mission for their kitsch, melodramatic lyrics that even sound vaguely homoerotic to me, but fuck me, that groovy bassline on "Wasteland" and haunting arrangements on "Severina" are infectious.

Am I the only one?
No. 40019 Kontra
I should note that The Mission's Hard Rock phase was brief and confined to only one album before returning to their signature style of Goth Rock whereas The Cult permanently transitioned towards Hard Rock by the time they released Electric, so perhaps comparing the two bands isn't entirely fair despite the former opening for the latter.

Wasteland was a great song to start this thread, but with Severina you convinced me to hear the full album. Great stuff, I can see why it grabbed hold of you. In listening to their follow up albums, Children and Carved in Sand, neither have matched God's own Medicine. Although there were a number of tracks that stood out-including Deliverance and Amelia(fair warning, the subject matter of the latter track is abuse, and may be disturbing). While Fabienne lacked a driving hook, the music was beautiful.

The Mission - Fabienne

I also enjoyed this Aerosmith cover:

The Mission-Dream On

And I just have to mention this one from the album Masque. I'll confess that I didn't actually go this far forward into their discography, but skipping ahead I landed on She Conjures Me Wings. It's quite a departure from their usual sound, but is a really fun track. I can't believe they didn't release this as a single:
