Who is your favorite brony musician?
Me personally I liked dbpony before he changed his name
to be honest, sticking with only one will lead to disdain, but if you wanna know what name got more songs on my playlist is archie, aftermath, simgretina, yourenigma, vaceslav, idkquicksilver, dynamite grizzly, (micro)thunder... there are a lot of other names but without that many songs on my playlist, so you would probably wont consider them relevant, still, they made good stuff
I imagine it having a somewhat musky scent.
I wish Creber would stop calling herself Apple Bloom in their songs. "Apple Bloom and Blackgryph0n sing!". No. She's not Apple Bloom. Apple Bloom lives on a farm. She doesn't know any brony musicians. She lives on a farm in Equestria.
My favorites ever (in no order):
Favorites of the people who are still making pony music; not people that have long since stopped:
I used to be obsessed with pony electronic music and would shovel any shit the fandom put down my throat. Nowadays I don't even watch this show anymore and certainly don't care about the fandom, but there are a few old names that I visit every once in a while.
those would be
pinkie pie swear
>listens to autistic fandom made music
>call's me a hipster
I'll post a few songs or channels that are decent.
some are even pretty good but have very little attention so help a couple out with sub or something if you like them.
Yeah autism trigger warning but still, ok music.
Oh jeez, the autism. How about a good, classical artist? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u8GuuEq0cb0 With some great melodies where he's coming from? I can take this dude's music for hours and not be bugged.
I still listen to the old soundtracks to FiM. Applehorse theme, anyone?
This music still hits me so hard in the feels that I can only listen to it every once in a while.
>No love for Odyssey, Lenich and Kirya, and Wasteland Wailers.
>Pre-sell out silva hound
>Pre sellout tombstone
made me kek then sad
All of my favorites from back in the day are either *mostly*
>Not doing MLP music
>Out of the game
None because they are all literally autistic children who torrented fl studios and think that making deadmau5 ripoffs gives them any shreds of credibility. I've met most of them and they all smell weird and are ugly... Except for fenning though. He's a qt and I'd ravage his twink butthole any day unf.
Did what Ian Watkins got found out about make LostProphets music bad? That's a better example of the same problem.
I read the transcript of the judge's summing up of his trial, where she listed everything he did. You think it can't get any worse, and then it does. And it just goes on and on. When I say bad, I mean REALLY FUCKING BAD.
>faith, trust, dialogue, performance and sincerity can work to transcend postmodern irony
>furthermore described as being “ignorance, fanaticism and anxiety” >
trance-like state” in those participating in it.
> media-induced shallowness and instantaneous participation in trivial events is a “silent autism” superseding “the neurosis of modernism and the narcissism of postmodernism
Basically post irony parallels new sincerity in the sense the previously ironic statements are to be taken seriously, but it combines an absurdist veil that shrouds its true intentions. It breaks away from the face value irony of postmodernism into something that is entirely ambiguous
Some prime examples of a post ironic movement could be die Antwerp, internet memes, Donald trump, and even my little pony itself. All are odd, somewhat meta, and give of a feeling of uncertainty; one is sure that the movement has intent and has an aesthetic, but it not concrete in its seriousness. It is basically meta irony in the sense that it is ironically ironic, fast paced instantaneous culture that spreads through society like wildfire and quickly burns out as fast as it came. People only take I serious as long as they can keep their attention on it before another piece of culture takes place.
So for a post ironic musical movement, there is no better place for it to take place within a post ironic movement itself. A meme within a meme, have you.
I was thinking maybe an aesthetic like this:
Quick, snappy, absurd, and catchy.
And what if I asked if anyone done complementary pieces which highlighted playing the cello?
Fact we all listen what we are in the mood for even if it is fanbased highlighting a particular show.
>be in autistic fandom
>wonder why autists like autismo things that you think are autistic
Fucking Christ anon those tunes are on bloody point thanks for sharing
everyone on the Pony Swag Megamix seriously that was nuts even now like whoa man
Before the autists jump in, I just wanna say I feel you, bro.
Sure, some of 'em, a LOT of 'em, kinda sucked. But at least they were sincere. That's a trait in sharp decline, these days.
New album soon.
This image showed up on his tumblr for like 2 seconds.
If you poke around tumblr a bit you can find a couple of fragments of new songs he's making for different people.
I forget when it came up, but someone asked about the new album and iirc he responded
"Kind police will bring good news."
What a mystery.
The majority of brony musicians listen to the Top 40 of electronic music. Any eclectic, or just non popular or old, genre is outside their scope.
If you do music for yourself, take a go at it. If you want views, listen the top brony songs and follow their template.
>plus hes a horsefucker
Huh. This opinion isn't biased at all.
>the only brony musician who knows how to sing
Other than MIU, Christina Lawson, d.notive, Blackgryph0n and Mando
drop your fucking autism for a second and just admit it, SGaP, and Feather. And that's just off the top of my head.
Not that anon, but no.
I've never heard of the first two, and I wasn't aware SGaP sang. Doesn't he only do slices?
d.notive's and Feather's are processed like hell. d.notive sounds like he actually vocodes his voice, and Feather did a live performance with Aviators and sounded terrible. So no, they don't know how to sing.
I'll give you Blackgryphon and Mando. Especially Mando. But WoodLore's vocals are a cut above theirs. He's shit at producing, but I heard him play at BronyCon (inb4 autist) and he kicked ass.
>Christina Larson (sorry)
>Feather did a live performance with Aviators and sounded terrible
If you got a link, post it. She sounded great in Apples of my Eye, but I've never been to ANY live performance of horsemusic, so I'll give you the benefit of the doubt.
WoodLore's alright. I honestly don't think his vocal skills are anything special. Impressive range for a baritone, but I could hit the same notes and I can barely sing for shit anymore.
CLOPimage as picture. I am now biased for this thread.
Is it still worth it to get into the music scene? I've really been thinking about it, but with the state it's in, the decision's a real toss-up. I know it's not about having fans or recognition, but half the fun of this kind of thing is sharing it with others.
>half the fun of this kind of thing is sharing it with others.
If that's your attitude, then I'd say 'no'.
I got onto this ride because of the music. Because I liked the music. Not because other people liked the music and I wanted to fit in. Five years later, I'm still here.
baka senpai desu imho
'somewhat decent' singers
And the Rainfall
Mic the Microphone
'fairly good' singers
All Levels at Once
Plum Creek Rhythm Session
'commendably great' singers
Archers of Agincourt
Lenich & Kirya
'expressively awesome' singers
took quite longer than I thought it would
>le ebin trole faec may may xD
okay now just drink bleach for real
I appreciate the effort here, but there's a distinct difference between a song having great sounding vocals and a singer being great. Chi Chi's songs sound great because she works with great producers, and if you go to her personal channel you'll know what I mean. Having her in the same 'tier' as Woodlore and Joaf is kind of silly.
In that case, this original came out a few days ago, and it sounds quite like her best collabs.
I suppose she limits her potential range just to retain that signature cutesy, airy feel found in most of her singing. Fair enough stylistic trade-off I guess.
I'm not going to get into who's better and who's worse. But if you're looking at who's a good singer, you have to look at who relies on pitch correction and who doesn't. Because at the end of the day, if your intonation is bad, it doesn't matter how spectacular your range, your stylization, or your tone is. If you can't sing on pitch, nobody is going to think you can sing. And I think that's fair.
And I'm not saying that using pitch correction is bad. If someone wants to use pitch correction to get the result they're aiming for, then that's great. The best songs in the fandom use pitch correction. But the songs that use it can't be a testament to the vocalist's singing ability.
Just looked her up. That was some weird shit anon. But she seems to still have control over her pitch, which is the important thing.
Anyway I'm a b list brony musician who hasn't made music in months, ask me anything chumps.
Just finished college and have a boring full time job. Can't record anything because my commute is too long and I have no time. But I have stuff written.
No I'm not eating anything. Just s sitting at my desk bored. My dream is to not have a full time job.
heh, weed is pretty common these days, don't have to smoke it to get that feeling
do anything for fun aside from cartoon horses? gotta have something to look forward to even if the present is dull
I mean I have smoked, just not every day since I was four.
I was into hiking and wilderness survival when I had the time. Hopefully I'll get back to it eventually. I don't know how I went from wilderness survival to ponies honestly.
First, everyone is in it for popularity and affirmation, at least partially. If someone says otherwise, they're lying.
Second, if you want to do horse music, don't get caught up in the hugbox. When you start putting out shitty music, everyone's going to tell you you're great, because they're bronies. And that can be a really great thing to hear, especially since a lot if people who get into this are very insecure and desperate for that affirmation. But you have to tune it out and find all of the faults in your music. Be your own biggest critic and realize that unless you have more than, say 20k subscribers, all of those nice people in the comments are full of shit.
I can keep ranting on this stuff tonight after work if the threads still alive.
>someone with actual experience and knowledge ranting
please, enlight us woodlore.
I meant it more as that's the mindset you should have. There are obviously other factors that go into how popular you are, and i know it's subjective, but it's mostly about quality. If your content is good enough, you'll get the subscribers. I'm more trying to say that if you're not as popular as you want to be, don't make excuses for yourself as to why your not popular, just work hard to improve your content.
It really isn't always about how good you are, some are really really talented yet they slip under the radar. It really is a dog eat dog world and if you aren't promoting yourself you will go under quicker than the Titanic after it hit an iceberg. And that is what really sucks about anything is the balancing act, if you are to focused on promoting, you aren't creating and if you are creating, you aren't promoting. It is why you see the most popular spamming countless songs every other day they get, and the more they do, the more the quality drops because they aren't spending as much time nor thought in their works.
I agree to a point. But I think of you're really really good, your content will promote itself. And if you're really really not good, you can spam your shit everywhere all day and go nowhere.
There are always exceptions, but the point I'm trying to make here is that if you yourself are a creator, the best way to get more popular is to just work hard to improve the content you're putting out, regardless of any feedback you're getting. That's all I'm saying.
I know it's not what people want to hear, but you have to know your music theory. You don't have to be an expert, but you need to be able to know how to build chords, know how those chords fit together in families, and know how your melodies fit into those chords. If you don't know those things, then you're just going to be guessing when you're writing something. At the very least, you should be able to listen to most pop songs and figure out the relative chord progression by ear. Once you're there, it's really easy to figure out how to build a song that you might have in your mind.
As for lyrics and subjects, and how to pair them with music, I think that's more subjective. I have my opinions on what works and other people have theirs. If blab about it on Elements Of Harmony if you're bored and want to hear it.
I don't know. I've been writing music for over seven years now and I'm still a nobody. I'd like to think it has something to do with genre. Apparently mlp fans love all the electronic shit, and overlook the more classical or acoustic side with the exemption of several artists of course. I find it so damn frustrating seeing people on soundcloud and youtube with thousands of subscribers for shitty copy/paste melodies/chord progressions EDM and I'm just sitting here with nothing despite spending typically over a month on something.
I said popularity has to do with QUALITY, not talent. The unfortunate truth is that it's possible for idiots to make high quality EDM without knowing what they're doing. I'm not saying that there aren't some really talented people making EDM. There are. But I use FL Studio, and the presets for EDM they have built into that thing make it really easy to sound like you know what you're doing. Music-savvy people can spot when EDM is generic, but most people can't.
>Apparently mlp fans love all the electronic shit, and overlook the more acoustic side
Believe me, I get it. It pisses me off constantly.
>I'd like to think it has something to do with genre. Apparently mlp fans love all the electronic shit, and overlook the more classical or acoustic side
It's because it's new. Like it or not, people have strong associations with genres, and classical, along with "classical" is seen as a genre that is about temperance, prudence, and good taste. When people think of modern music, they think of it being raw, experimental, and pushing the boundaries. It's not just that most bronies want to listen to EDM, it's that most people want to listen to EDM. It's new and fresh to them, and classical is seen as being antiquated, which is why people don't seek it out. As for copy-pasted melodies and chord progressions, that's nothing new. If you go back to the classical era of Mozart, Haydn, Salieri, etc. you'll find composition workbooks filled with musical structures. There were tons of musical gestures and progressions that were used all the time, and students would learn to elaborate and decorate these structures.
Princewhateverer is my favorite. I also like yelling at cats and glaze/wooden toaster. Twenty ten was good in the four songs they made. Used to like Mando for his songs like Loyalty and Kindness. Wish most of the people I like weren't dead.
Favorite song: https://youtu.be/QC8MHrFTLJ0
True, though I would say I've heard quite a lot of mediocre/bad non-electronic artists too, if not more
Probably because EDM is considerably easier to do 'okay' in as compared to other more acoustic genres
Got any favorite songs from electronic fan musicians? I've been around the scene since its inception.
