Electronic music started as an art form, rock music started as a dance music for plebs, how come now it's easier to find rock music with artistic merit, but to get to good electronic stuff you have to go through a lot of shit
electronic music just started as a new way to produce sounds. It was mostly used by avantgarde composers because at the time it wasn't an EASIER way to make music. Your average commercial music producer had no interest in dealing with al those knobs and wires to get some bleeps and bloops. "electronic music" is not a genre.
it became super easy to make. even easier than pop rock. it started as an artform because only rich white artists had access to it. it was considered art because it was used to produce sounds that no one had heard before-- it would have been very difficult to make popular music on early electronic equipment anyways.
stop assuming bad electronic music means EDM. all electronic music of recent years is worthless. even "intelligent dance music," ambient, etc. its all backpacker shit. only worthwhile musician i can think of is robert aiki aubrey low. show me someone on stockhausen, david borden, delia darbyshire, etc
It's easy to record now, yes, but it requires more equipment, space and money than basic electronic production does.
Hence there tend to be less bedroom rock producers by comparison.
>rock music requires more expensive equipment than electronic music
you can start a band with just a thousant bucks in your pocket
there are probably more rock bands than bedroom producers if you count all teens playing together, high-school bands, amateurs and the like
