I come from programming background and I would like to synthesize music from the raw basics, like sine, saw and square waves and various filters. But before that I would like to learn a bit of music theory, research that has been done before me. Is there anybody here familiar with the subject?

Download Pd then read this:

http://msp.ucsd.edu/techniques/latest/book.pdf

If you've learned other programming languages, it'll be a piece of cake.

Then start listening to Stockhausen and Autechre I guess.

>Fantano
I mainly watch his videos for the thinkpieces/stinkpieces and tracks of the week segment, but sometimes he'll review a new album which catches my eye, and if he has good things to say about it, I eventually end up listening to it. I've done this for not even ten albums, so it's kind of pointless to mention.
>/mu/
If an album cover or title catches my eye, I add it to my list of albums to listen to. About half of the albums I pick up from /mu/ are from chart threads, and the other half are from all the other threads.
>Wikipedia
Sometimes I like to read artists' Wikipedia pages and dig through the related artists' pages and browse through their studio albums. If the album name catches my eye, I add it to my listening list.
>Discogs
I like to go through genres that I haven't listened to much of or find interesting, and browse deep into the pages and add all the album covers/titles that catch my eye to my listening list. I usually go straight to the further back pages and work my way forwards until I get bored. Most of the music I listen to comes from doing this.
>Pitchfork
Don't even look for music through this shitty site, I just like reading the political articles because I think they're funny.

Maybe this'll help some other anons. Most likely not, though.

Been hearing a lot of good things about Albumoftheyear.org, will probably start looking into it.

This album is very loud and obnoxious, production is great though, good workout music.

From Filthy Tongues of Gods and Griots by Dalek is bretty gud as well, very in your face at times.

Public Enemy's "It Takes a Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back" is a classic that rarely holds back.

I don't know if you're looking for actual quality or just being a dipshit.

yeah but when its albums on bandcamp
or stuff you downloaded *leans in to whisper* illegally
it like creates its own page for each track
and when u cilck on the artists there are no albums mentioned under their name

idk man

last.fm is very flawed in many ways


as for ur 'blandness"
its a superficial glance at the color palette of ur chart (lots of monotones) and moods of albums i recognized (kind of grey and downbeat)

The problem is the huge variety of music out there and finding people who can discuss the music you like if not the usual fodder is rare.

8 years and the closest I've come to my tastes is /groove/ but even then the other main poster is much more keen on older funk and I like the newer style.

Remember how most of /mu/ are 17-20 and only really scratching (no pun intended) the surface and discovering music but then the only boards which cater for many subgenres are on reddlt which are mostly youtube links and nothing more.
>>
>>71794060
we should get a containment board of our own desu?

>>71794027
>and when u cilck on the artists there are no albums mentioned under their name

what do you use to scrobble? some scrobbling plugins, as opposed to the actual scrobbler program, don't take the album artist tag into account when scrobbling, which prevents last.fm from making an album page

>>71794079
I guess that's why the only real way to discuss music you like that isn't well-known on the board is to spread it around so people listen to it. But no one likes a shill and having your faves memed is mostly counterproductive to discussion itself.

it's some dedication to stick around this place for 8 years despite all that tho damn
