Realised I have forgotten to push for a rule I normally try and enforce for the setter of the rules if there is a specified Genre. Namely that they provide three links which illustrates the kind of music they are referring to so that people have a reference point.
From the earlier discussion I think it’s more aiming at anything other that brostep, heavily bassline compressed dubstep. Try and think about the space between the beats/sounds as being as much as part of the music as the beats/notes themselves. Try and get some dynamic range in there, rather than having it heavily compressed to all be the same level.
The 2-step influenced stuff will often lean towards this way (although personally not quite so up my street) as will much other.
Few examples from myself, trying to cover a fairly wide spectrum while still feeling close to Minimal to me. Hopefully td6d will show his face soon and say if he agrees and add some of his own to the selection.
Distance - My Demons (think this is the kind of thing he is mainly hinting at.)
Sorry I realise I missed doing a random selection from my xrni instruments folder, which usually results in at least one drum kit (and not much good from the random loops this time either.) All working with the same restriction though (and I hope others are doing better than me )
Well I’ve tried to start something twice and not done well on the music front. I have got a little more creative on the scripting front and this tool may in fact be fun to try using in this competition
I will try and get my arse in gear to get this round onto Soundcloud. Think the account I did have expired though so may take a fair amount of sorting things out before it lets me put in own set and things…
