That was the question asked by PBS’ Idea Channel. Some people think dubstep is just noisy, repetitive drivel (for shame!) but if you really think about it, a lot of musical styles throughout history have experienced the exact same criticism.
Music is subjective and as our culture evolves, so does the music we find appealing. Over the past century, changes in technology and music genres have led to mainstream fans being obsessed with people like Skrillex. So instead of being all stuffy and rejecting dubstep as a genre, consider it a form of avant garde music. In ten years time, it’s going to be the norm and some other new fangled style of music will go through the ringer.
Luckily, the dude in this video explains it a lot better than me. Check it out above.
Usually recut trailers grasp at any small moments in the film that just MIGHT turn it into a different genre, but it never really works out. That’s how I thought this Mrs. Doubtfire trailer would be but it’s way better than I thought it would be.
In this version of the movie, Daniel Hillard is so distraught after losing custody of his children he evolves into another personality: Mrs. Euphegenia Doubtfire. And she is not a pleasant person.
I never realized how many moments in the movie could be perceived as creepy if rearranged in a different order with suspenseful music in the background. I will never look at the movie the same way again.
Watch the recut trailer here:
Digital Spy is reporting that Cher is going country for her next album. What?
Country music producer Mark Bright has confirmed that he will be working on a new album with Cher in the near future. Bright has worked with numerous country acts, and is known as one of the masterminds behind all three of Carrie Underwood’s studio albums.
When asked about working with Cher, he told Silk and Denim Music: “Cher knows that her listeners also listen to country music, so she felt it was a natural thing to develop a country music relationship.”
The album would be the first solo effort from Cher since 2001′s Living Proof. That’s a decade!
The star has recently appeared in the film and soundtrack for “Burlesque” alongside Christina Aguilera. Although Cher won a Golden Globe for the song ‘You Haven’t Seen The Last Of Me’ from the film’s soundtrack, she failed to win an Oscar.
Cher is such an icon, and I can guarantee that her dedicated fans will follow her no matter what music path she decides to embark on, but country? Really? I guess her deep, crooner voice would fit with the genre, but I just have such an image of Cher as this electronic disco diva that I find it hard to picture her in a cowboy hat.
Props to her for trying something new, though. Unlike Avril Lavigne or the Backstreet Boys, who have been doing this forever without a change in style, at least Cher is taking a risk. And I like risk-taking. Yeehaw, Cher, Yee-haw.
As per usual, Jordan did his due diligence before interview Chromeo. When doing so, he learned that Chromeo defies a genre. These guys are just so over the map, you really can’t compare them to anybody. Anyways, David and Patrick from Chromeo sat down to explain their “secret sauce” to making music.
