Question Music of the future? New genres?

Hi all, if you listen to old folk they will probably say everything's been done in music, when I listened to pop music in the 80s growing up I didnt like music much, as it was mostly rock and pop on the radio like Kylie and status quo, but then I heard kraftwerk, jean michel jarre and axel f and thought this is wierd it's electronic music using synths and keyboards, this is when I begin listening to music and when the 90s came along the next best thing was computer music which gave birth to dance and rave music which the first rave tune blew my mind like the prodigys charly and psi divisions mindf**k2000 elastic man remix, the shaman and 2unlimited, I really got into this music and loved it ever since, in 1993 I got into making music with a friend and used an Amiga 500 and music software called octamed which was ahead of its time and we made dance music and hardcore tunes, ever since towards 1999 I felt dance music lost steam and felt it ran out of ideas of what you could do next, so me and my friend packed it all in for a while. Then in 2000 I discovered propellerhead reason which was a revolutionary music product for its time and began to make music on my own and ever since used it. Back in the early days rave music gave me lots of adrenaline and euphoria, I feel you can't beat the classics like lots of oldskool heads say but can you? These days I hear on the radio drum and bass, dubstep and the like which I think Is the latest trend in electronic music but what's next, nearly anybody can make dance music on computer these days, what do you think the next innovation is going to lead us? What is the next genre going to be? How good can software get? What's the next synths going to do and what is the next science in music technology? Personally I would like to see brain magnetic stimulation technology intergrated with a sequencer so you can add extra highs and extra emotions to your music, that's what I want to see! What instruments are the future you've seen? What you think guys?

You might be kidding but this technology exists, look up tms or tdcs, I just want reason to intergrated it with reason and make some tms device to go with reason 9, this will be the future instrument, not just making sounds but making emotions too!

Well, one possible trend in the future might be more stuff written in micro tunings. That's a very underexplored area right now other than at the fringes of music making. But current technology makes these sorts of tunings possible and who knows where that might lead?

Ah yes, but we may probably be ".. reinventing a wheel .." - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qADmHaVZ74M#t=5m15s .

Oh I sincerely hope not.

I'm not sure whether you're saying that this will somehow give emotion to music (as if somehow music up to this point never has any kind of emotional content) or if you're actually talking about "playing" emotions like happy or sad directly into another person's head. Either way that sounds awful to me. Music is already an emotional experience without any technological help, and I don't ever want someone to be beaming fake emotions into my skull.

hello,just reading your posts,this is an interesting topic

As a big fan of electronic music,I can see computer based music being an additon,to more traditional stuff,or new kinds of hybrid music,he,he
As an example,here in the UK in Somerset,we have Glastonbury,(I'm sure you would have heard of this,lol) And many other gigs round the country.
But now and then they have people their showcasing their work,very different to what we are usally hear,I can't explain this well.
Orbital are one of favs,they are always experimenting with samples etc
Me I like the whole experimental side of things,as as you guessed I make ambient soundcapes,dark,sinister,industrial (in the piepline) and of course anything in between,ha,ha

To end this,I do think musicians( or music artists if you like) will start to experiment more,and as software and hardware becomes more affordable,more people will catch on,and start to develop their own style.
Traditional, and classic based music will still be there,very much so,and long may it continue

Interesting. By the time the early 90's came around and rave appeared, I was already knee-deep in the local Detroit electronic scene, including Chicago/Detroit industrial dance, techno, as well as a plethora of alternative rock at the time. I remember walking into a club called Industry and hearing rave for the first time. It was LA Style's "James Brown is Dead", Prodigy's "Charly", and Apotheosis "O Fortuna" that absolutely BLEW. MY. MIND. I'd never heard anything like it at the time and it was so fresh and new. Amazing.

It's rare to experience moments like that. A lot of it is youth and inexperience, something we can never capture again.
