>>73977416
He would make contemporary classical. Composers always compose. They don't usually make sub-par genres like prog or other popular musics.

Mozart would be writing 30 part fugues using computers, writing symphonies with live electronics, writing VR operas, writing opening ceremonies for the olympic games, as well as all the usual things that composers nowadays do.

yes. Why not? computers speed up the composing process a hundredfold. Mozart would of course make use of this. The ability to write a piece for full orchestra, press 1 button to extract all the parts for the individual pages and then email PDFs to anywhere in the world would make Mozart a lot more productive, and a lot more global.

There are almost no composers who don't use computers these days. Many use pen and paper to start with, but the music always ends up in a computer program like sibelius or finale eventually.

Mozart would be making trap beats for soundcloud rappers on a pirated version of FL Studio, a.k.a. the highest form of contemporary musical expression
>>
>>73977894
Not even close. Popular musicians don't come anywhere near classical composers. You have to be able to at least write a fugue, if not write full cantatas and passions to be a modern day Bach.
>>
>>73977904
Thats the lowest form of contemporary musical expression though. Contemporary classical composers exist. They still write for the concert hall and still write for classical musicians. They just have the ability to incorporate electronics and regularly use computer programs.

>press 1 button to extract all the parts for the individual pages

it speeds up the composition process. Computer programs do that. The ability to copy and paste, quickly erase parts and re-do them, record MIDI improvisation or ideas in quickly, etc. makes programs excellent for composition. A composer would be a fool not to make use of them. Mozart was not a fool.

>>73978013
Come back when she can write a fugue. She is not a classical composer. You might think she's great, but until she can read and write music and understand music theory, she is nothing to the classical crowd.

to whoever this retard is lemme tell you some hard shit, because at some point you have to accept it. Grimes is not special in anyway. the only, and I mean only thing she has going for her is her voice, and of course you autistic waifu fags. I could outplay grimes on any fucking instrument im more than 100% confident in that. hell most no talent hacks who play for fun could outplay her. you know why she played in F# here its because the key is literally the easiest to visualize on piano. she probably didnt even know it was F#.

Now comparing your dumpster fir obsession to Mozart is the most insulting thing I have ever heard anyone say. do you know how fucking disrespectful it is? do you realize Mozart wrote fucking masterpieces without an instrument. the fucker would literal get hammered and just write out entire symphonies and ever single one was amazing. no one, and I mean no one except maybe miles could come anywhere near Mozart musical skill. let alone grimes. she is bad, she is NOT talented, and sooner or later you need to realize that.
>>
>>73979925
>Grimes is not special in anyway. the only, and I mean only thing she has going for her is her voice, and of course you autistic waifu fags.
Absolutely bullshit. Not only she doesn't consider herself a singer but a songwriter-producer, but also her instrumentals are the main dish. She's really good at making instrumentals.

>I could outplay grimes on any fucking instrument im more than 100% confident in that.
Yeah sure. That's why you're a nobody and she's famous. The songwriting talent is way more important than playing skills. If you play well an instrument, fine, but you're not on the same level as a creator of songs. You're a mere worker while she's the engineer. Know your place.

>she probably didnt even know it was F#.
It doesn't matter at all. Music theory is just conventions of the existing facts. She has intuition to create great music without knowing music theory. Is it a conicidence that mostly failed musicians (like you) hate her?

>Now comparing your dumpster fir obsession to Mozart is the most insulting thing I have ever heard anyone say. do you know how fucking disrespectful it is? do you realize Mozart wrote fucking masterpieces without an instrument. the fucker would literal get hammered and just write out entire symphonies and ever single one was amazing. no one, and I mean no one except maybe miles could come anywhere near Mozart musical skill. let alone grimes. she is bad, she is NOT talented, and sooner or later you need to realize that.

Grimes' music is filled with the use of imitative counterpoint applied to digital music samples. Eg. the live jam at the beginning of this video has all the characteristics of a multi-subject fugue, complete with things like retrograde episodes of the various subjects.

Is it a fugue in a purely traditional classical sense? Hell no. Is it almost entirely based on imitative counterpoint? Hell yes.

>it doesn't matter at all
Yes it does. Claiming that she's talented for only making a melody on the black keys when it is incredibly easy to do so in the F# major pentatonic is simply ignorant
>is it a coincidence that mostly falied musicians hate her?

>Wow, so Grimes got lucky getting famous, and that anon didnt. That's DEFINITELY a good measure of talent
Of course. That means her art got an audience. That's a measure of success. She makes art for other people to enjoy + for the money, that's the whole point of making music professionally. She achieved her goal, more or less.
>And Grimes is a better creator of songs than Mozart?
That's subjective. It depends how much you enjoy their respective works. I personally prefer Grimes more than Mozart.
>Yes it does. Claiming that she's talented for only making a melody on the black keys when it is incredibly easy to do so in the F# major pentatonic is simply ignorant
You're the actual ignorant. Making great melodies using big constraints (only black keys) that's a sign of genius. Making more with less, creating a Ferrari from a metal sheet, creating a David from a block of marble.
>Well that's not even true, but even if it was, why wouldn't the anon dislike Mozart and Miles if his main method of judging music was how famous they got?
There's a catch: he hates modern artists that got a decent amount of success. That's his competition, not some famous dead guys.
Miles and Mozart are very established; saying you like them has zero controversy. Meanwhile, saying you like Grimes that's more challenging because she's too new. If she had a long career like Bjork I bet you would treat her differently - with more respect. You're actually influenced by consensus.

>>73981532
>Please provide the rest.
Why? She isn't Mozart. There is only one modern day Mozart: Mozart, because his music still exists as a cultural force.

Which doesn't mean you can't make serious comparisons between the music of a contemporary artist like Grimes and Mozart's. Because, as I just clearly pointed out, similarities exist.
>>
>>73981927

Sure, just as similarities exist between Mozart and almost every modern artist. That does not mean that Grimes is the "modern Mozart"

>>
>>73981748
>>73981703
Holy shit, you're both autistic fucking idiots.

One point right out the gate, what is with this concept that it is easy to make a melody with an F# major pentatonic? By this logic, it would be just as easy to make a melody in any pentatonic scale, because you could just transpose it to any other key. Why is F# your point here, just because it's the black keys on the piano? Why are the black keys easier than using the white keys and playing in C major?
Wouldn't it be even easier to make a melody in c major? You get leading tones, which add tension and release to the music, everyone and their mother knows the damn major scale, whether or not they even know it's called that. Making a major melody can be done really easily.

Secondly, Grimes is nowhere near Mozart's level of musical ability, and to even imply that just shows profound ignorance as to what Mozart was able to do. He could write entire symphonies, never hearing what he was even making except in his own head. He had a knack for doing complex things and making it sound like beautiful ear candy. He mastered several instruments and had toured a continent by the time he was 10.

But finally, Grimes and Mozart operate in completely different spheres of music, and to even compare them is a dumb idea. Mozart was all about the MUSIC. Modern music, like Grimes, is all about the TIMBRE. They're different things.

If Mozart was alive today, he'd probably have kept up with the times and be making something completely different than he did back then, because that stuff is old hat. It's been taught in universities for 200 years, and the innovation isn't there anymore.

what is it with older people glorifying older music?
my theory is that these people are afraid of death. everytime someone comes out with a new sound that builds upon older styles people are reminded of their mortality. they fear that they aren't as important as they once thought. they are not the center of the universe. the advancement of technology and art scares them because they know that they will never be alive to enjoy what technological development has to offer

they feel robbed of this so they pansy around yelling obscenities to anyone who dares make the claim that music of the current generation is way more intellectually stimulating than previous generations. they use typical adhominem attacks and weak arguments like compare lady gaga to bob dylan completely mowing over the fact that 60s and 70s radio pop music is just as bad. in reality bob dylan was really just the bon iver of the 60s.

they are afraid of mortality so they try to deify the time that they were alive to make it immortal. they're so selfish that they get off on the fact that their "time" was better than any other "time" in the remaining 1-2 decades that they have left on planet earth.

here's the bitter truth: music, literature, film etc.. and the arts in general are just in their infancy. it is a 2 week old fetus. it will be "born" when immersive virtual reality becomes the norm. yes bands like the velvet underground and writers like james joyce helped create some of the tissue fibre of the baby but they are merely just an atom compared to the rest of the baby. the artists of the future will prove to be the stoic gods that the dads of today consider musicians of their time to be.

you have to accept the fact that your best people are but a blip on the radar in the grand scheme of things and at most will have had a say in how an atom of a tissue fibre of art will look like to onlookers in a million millennia

Im mad because you think this retard has talent. being famous doesn't equate to musical skill. implying someone is talented based of their success is so fucking dumb. if that's the truth then Elvis is literally the most talented god tier musician ever. I'm also sure I could write better than grimes. my point here is you're in denial that your goblin god sucks, and fucking comparing her to the actual greatest musician who ever lived is either profound ignorance, or profound disrespect.

also ill take a second to address the failed musician aspect. if you've ever been to NYC and been in more than 2 jazz clubs im 100% certain you've seen me play. I play for a living that's all I do. I was a studio musician for 3 years before getting the opportunity to play live full time so im also on my fair share of albums.

your goblin may be known, but ask any player if she's talented and the answer is always a resounding no. I can pull out my looper and lay down a track in her same vein 10X better than her, and I'm not even in the same genre.

The autism of this comic is that it assumes that listen == change, which assumes that whatever is being said is ultimately for the better. It also assumes that humans even really can fight that instinctive fighting urge, that in acknowledging its existence it somehow goes away. Changes are if you agreed with all the facts set up in the comic it isn't because you fought your core instincts, it's because you kind of on some level always believed those things, and just needed facts to confirm those beliefs.

The easiest way to get somebody to change their mind is to connect with them on an emotional level and get them to lower those defenses.

But memeing isn't all sunshine and rainbows, kid. You're skilled... that much I can tell. But do you have what it takes to be a Memester? To join those esteemed meme ranks? To call yourself a member of the Ruseman's Corps? Memeing takes talent, that much is true. But more than that it takes heart. The world-class Memesters - I mean the big guys, like Johnny Hammersticks and Billy Kuahana - they're out there day and night, burning the midnight meme-oil, working tirelessly to craft that next big meme.

And you know what, kid? 99 times out of a hundred, that new meme fails. Someone dismisses it as bait, or says it's "tryhard," or ignores it as they copy/paste the latest shitpost copypasta dreamt up by those sorry excuses for cut-rate memers over at reddit. The Meme Game is rough, kid, and I don't just mean the one you just lost :^). It's a rough business, and for every artisan meme you craft in your meme bakery, some cocksucker at 9gag has a picture of a duck or some shit that a million different Johnny No-Names will attach a milion different captions to.

>she isn't the worst artist ever but the best of the decade? really?
Dude, everyone is entitled to believe whatever the fuck they want. If a group of people believe that she's the best of the decade, how does that affect you? You're losing money or what?

Holy samefag. Grimesfags need to tie piano wire around their necks. I'm pretty sure any decent jazz player has 100x the musical talent of Grimes. She isn't even in the top 20 producers of the past 5 years. And you think she hold a candle to someone who has been praised for centuries.

F# major is enharmonically equivalent to Gb major dumbass. And the pentatonic is just major but leaving out two notes. It's the same thing, with a different names for each note.
That was the joke you damn retard.

Not who you're talking to, but you do realize that Jazz is mostly improvisation, so he's creating music while he is playing. Shit that hasn't been done before.

Mozart would love Despacito if he were alive today.

HA HA HA HA HA! That talent is futile if it's used to make boring ass music aka jazz. Grimes makes actual great music. Technical wankery is nothing without soul and melody.

How many jazz albums have you listened to? How many instruments do you play?

Different anon here
Sorry to break it to you buddy but Grimes isn't even what someone could call "well known"
I didn't even know she existed until i started visiting /mu/, and i'm sure the 80-90% of people who do as little as keep up with modern music don't know her either.
So it's kinda hypocritical lashing out to him about being a mere nobody when Grimes is the leader of a cult consisting of a miniscule amount of people

>I didn't even know she existed until i started visiting /mu/
Seriously? Did you even read the music press? She's literally on every music site. Her song Oblivion was Pichfork's song of 2012, her album Art Angels was #3 on p4K's AOTY list. Even Robert Christgau reviewed her albums. Are you living under a rock?

Take a look here https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Art_Angels#Year-end_lists

BTW I can assure you she's far more popular than that anon who plays jazz.

>>73985300
Well i'll be damned. And yes Grimes is by far more popular than jazz anon. But you seem to forget the fact that just because someone is popular doesn't mean that they are because they are talented or smth. Otherwise the Kardashians would be some of the most charismatic human beings in existence. I have tried to listen and get into Grimes, but luckily i can distinguish the difference between music and a bunch of overlapping synth and
tunes compined with a pretty voice and an avant garde music clip.

Jesus christ, you gullible autists are still arguing?

In this case her popularity is well earned. Her music is so enchanting and unique. There's literally nothing like her music. Trust me, I've heard tons of synthpop and non-synthpop albums.
The emotional impact is the most important thing in music, not some technical stuff or whatever.

He would never become a musical academic. He'd probably be in something like a Radiohead. Popular band with musically educated members.

>>73977445
Music simpleton.

He'd be making jazz death metal elecronica fusion.
