Is Dubstep Avant Garde Musical Genius?

Posted by: Keagan Ilvonen (08/02/12)
PBS has posted a video debating whether Dubstep is just noise or Avant Garde music at it's finest. They raise a lot of great points that you might not consider. If you have a few spare minutes jump to the replies and give it a chance.

One can only hope. But you're right.

in context. Yes. I feel like it's the music industry's apology for autotune.

Enter Shikari did a great job with it in their latest release.

But at Warped tour yesterday it seemed like if it wasn't some random ass Twilight themed band with their trick or treat breakdowns, it was the earth shaking via formulaic brokencyde-esque dubstep band X in the background noise of my walk between stages.

Don't pretend that a large portion of hate geared toward dubstep isn't due to Skrillex.

It's definitely music; I don't understand that argument ever. I wouldn't say it's necessarily genius, though

Hes is an easy target for people to attack (same could be said about him when he was in FFTL). End of the day people, love to hate what is popular.

Dubstep is our generation's Dada, of course.

How many times did you see this image, in fuck emo kid pics?

I really dont see how im being dumb in the slightest... The dude always had a "unique" look. You honestly do not think his shaven head hasnt made him stand out at all? Hes basically the driving force in mainstream popularity of the genre. as always you have to be a piece of shit for no reason

The second point is very true. Certain people definitely are more apt to hate something if it is popular.

I literally have no fucking idea what you are talking about.

The second part of your statement is untrue.

if you watch that video through the Skrillex Machine, does that create a time paradox?

No, that's what I found objectionable. I like "popular" music. I don't like shitty music, though.

I don't hate something if it's trendy or popular - I hate it if it sucks. It's the same for most people. There are definitely people that might think differently, but in reality they are saying that to keep some sort of "cred" or they might say they are "guilty pleasures." When it comes to music, I think "guilty pleasures" is the stupidest fucking thing in the world.
