He's just being perfectly frank with what it means to do an electronic music show. Most artists just go on stage with their laptops hooked up, hit play, turn some random knobs and pretend that it actually does something and get praised by all the morons listening and dancing like the second coming of Christ.


At least he isn't a hypocrite and clearly admits that any 5 year old could do a modern dance "Live" show. He insists that the skill of an EDM producer is measured in the studio, not on stage and that we're far from epic guitar solos and other stage performances most of the time (there's exceptions like Birdy Nam Nam for instance).

Yeah I know the quote wasn't a perfect fit for the argument, although I do think it's insincere honesty. Maybe I should have linked to his tu... Anyway my gist was... What was it now? There is something that makes some music more real or vital or special that is not in any plug-in, mastering tool or DAW. There

What I actually thought was that you stated a train of thought that was illogical, and didn't hold up under thoughtful scrutiny - whether it somehow was not your actual opinion, or whether you were "thinking out loud", was of no concern.

And yet you have time to post and tell me how much you don't care.

Whatever.

Well yeah man. I've read your previous posts. What you want is a thorough, well thought out solid argument with zero holes. Probably somewhere in the, I don't know..... 500 word per post range?

Well what I can give ya is the words in this post. Not sure if I offended ya somewhere along the way, if so I am sorry. I already E-conceded! I respect that you are another human I really do, I've just been there, done that with whole pointless argument on the Internet that 9 times out of 10 will end with nothing changed in either of our minds.

That's not exactly what I want - but a solid argument is what is required for a proposition to be taken seriously.

I mean, I could say, "just thinking out loud, but think about the color of the sky. You don't see what puts the color there. You don't see elves, either. Maybe elves put that color there." I could throw that out there, but I have no basis for it to be seriously considered, and if someone else tells me that's nonsense, I can't exactly say it isn't without a better rationale for stating it in the first place.

You haven't really offended me, per se, but to be honest I don't think you've been entirely straight with your responses. I mean, if it was really not all that big a deal to you, you wouldn't have had to keep posting to inform me how much it wasn't a big deal, or say how you were just "thinking out loud", or try to leave the question open with "maybe it is, maybe it isn't". If you actually were conceding, then was the post I'm replying to even necessary? I have a hard time believing the air of nonchalance your posts project when you do your own part to keep the exchange going. The more you go on about it, the more it seems to me like a calculated posture rather than actual indifference.

At this point, it's that which I'm responding to now more than your original post - the notion that you're so beyond the whole internet argument thing, and don't really care about it, and how unimportant the whole affair is - but still the posts keep coming...

I think it comes down to how well someone is in tune with themselves. Often many of us DO have conflicting thoughts and we speak out anyway. I try to give people room to express themselves while I try to see what they are attempting to say. The way I look at it is that its as much my responsibility to understand as it is the other to make their communication understandable... it requires an open graciousness.
