Often musicians are pride of their own ability to turn specific styles and genres into wondrous art piece. The problem with that, in my opinion, is that limiting yourselves in specific genres kill your true potential of creativity. Like borders or genders, genres are construct that stop interactions between humanity and building cells jailing their own thought. These thoughts become perspectives that damage their own true self, and wrongly express their opinion.

Music affect by the same problem. We often told ourselves that classical is better than every other genres, but truth is classical is part of the problem. Genres are meaningless. There is no boundary in sound, and how it was formed.

Music is a form of language, and when we learn a new language, it changes the way your brain and thought functioning. Embrace the difference and dive into the new. Communication should be universal and should not be divided by culture, class, sex or race. Music is communication.

Be open mind on how you listen, play or write music.

It will enventually change the way you observe this world. Maybe even be more acceptance for fellow humans like me. We look different than you or live in a different world, doesn't mean we don't share the same world.

Be open. We are not your enemy.

IMO, they did for me. I promise you will not need anything other softsynth VST. You won't believe number 5! Nah this is not a Buzzfeed article...


Serum

6170223_148764635243_serum2.jpg

Serum is absolutely a killer softsynth, probably the only thing that could beat Zebra. You can craft your wavetable from audio files, which what makes it so versatile.

Zebra

6170223_148764612942_uhe_zebra25.jpgHans Zimmer uses it! Nuff said.

SynthMaster

6170223_148764612823_synthmasterdefaultskin.png

Supernova!

Absynth

6170223_148764612582_absynth-main-1200-80.jpg

Endless sound possibility.

Harmor

6170223_148764612462_Harmor.png

Mick Gordon used it in Doom 2016.

Reaktor

6170223_148764612373_REAKTOR_6_Screenshot_Blocks.jpg

My ultimate power.

Iris

6170223_148764612271_iZotope-Iris-2.jpg

Softsynth of Mass Destruction

Omnisphere

6170223_148764612153_spectrasonics-Omnisphere-2-arp.jpg

Best but just massive.

Autogun

Culture jamming lives in us!

Example of détournement in art could be graffiti (King Robbo), culture jamming (Banksy), and in music there are anarcho-pop (Chumbawamba), art punk (No Age), and vaporwave (Macintosh Plus). These are what I call "obviously open détournement", where their satire and sarcasm are obvious.

The not-so-obvious détournement

Where does my music lie in this category? And more importantly, why is my music a form of détournement?

My music always written under some sort of message, not just theme but actual messages that try to speak to listeners. Those who first listen to my stuff will not discover them right away, but over time these messages attached to their mind. When you like my music, meaning you will sooner or later, find them. I always make sure that every time I compose a track, there is symbols and messages delivered in them.

And what does this have anything to do with détournement? Those messages are about anti-comsumerism, anti-capitalism, anti intellectual property, trying to rise social issues or served as a purpose of helping people. They are also pro-piracy and pro free and open music, because the music itself is already and always be free.

Take 2 examples of the latest tracks.

Memory Malfunction is blatanly obvious to mock the idiocy of the loudness war. The track's structure is written to satirically make a point out of mainstream electronic music, for the fight to bleed your eardrums, as GameBalance pointed out in the review.

Freefall is more cryptic. The messages are to mimic the situation of my own poverty with a slight cheerful tone. Hence I used A minor but with light-hearted chord progressions. Also to note this, but I can't help but notice most of the psybient composers came from upper class background. The track is also to jab at this, especially when I put in the description that I'm a "world class hobo composer". I mean it!


Détournement is a form of self expression. The power of an individual to humorously make comedy out of the world around them, but at the same time still able to produce art and music openly.

In societies where modern conditions of production prevail, all of life presents itself as an immense accumulation of spectacles. Everything that was directly lived has moved away into a representation.

Boredom is always counter-revolutionary. Always.

This is the latest track. I think it is officially the loudest track I ever done. Mixing this shit was crazy.

Have a great time with brutalness!

  • Anything with tiny bit of orchestra in it
  • Big percussions (imma guilty of it)
  • Pseudo-trailer with generic melodies
  • Actual trailer with pseudo melodies
  • Even a DnB with piano and pad
  • According to yourself...
  • ... anything you like, could be Cinematic!

Mr. X has this style I wanna try. Ms. Y makes this style I love. Mrs. Z's style is what I want...

Have your own style. Make your own that you can be distinguished and uniquely from other. This does not stop at a single genre, and you should move your creativity beyond limited tunnel vision of genres. Experiment, experiment, experiment! Never stop exploring every possibility. Every different turn is a potential masterpiece. You can borrow ideas from your inspirational and favorite musicians, but turn their styles into something else. Then you are surely never stop progressing toward the talents.

The true talent doesn't come from birth, it comes from your own experience and creativity.
