futuristic music! [music of the future]

futuristic music! [music of the future]

Postby organic io » Tue Apr 01, 2008 1:59 pm

here's another idea... how about a "futuristic music" round? but instead of something generic like 2030, something wacky far into the future like 3000, where we can't even possibly predict what it will be like. it could provoke some creative and interesting tunes :)

Edit:

Providing Chotoro's input in case this round ever gets selected:

Just a small note: perhaps "music of the future", is a better term. To me, "futuristic" seems to imply a certain kind of style.. like futuristic 50's sci-fi clothes. "Totally impractical, so it must be from the future!"-kind of thing. :)

Wow, I don't even remember suggesting this ... I wasn't thinking robot/electrical sounds though, I mean seriously, 1000 years from now? If you look at all the scifi stuff from a long time ago, ie. 1950's, they were predicting that we would all be living in spaceships with metal walls by 2000... But in actuality, technology has allowed things to be more "friendly" by allowing lots of customization, comfort, style... etc. So 1000 years from now I seriously doubt there will be Steven Hawking sounding robots running around.

I was thinking more along the lines of music being played by sticks, after the apocalypse. or something

Thats why we leave it open. You get incredibly electric upbeat stuff, along with post apocalyptic soundscapes. Would be an interesting round.

actually I'd like this ! Yeah futuristic sound design :-) that's what I'm working on.

Maybe I could contribute to the sample pack ... what about a Coop Samplepack of many ?

Can you take samples from an IT file? I could start with a collection of 16 different pulse wave lengths and a saw wave.
Just consider me a person using a PPC Mac to make music... and to listen to your music! ^_^

Good point! I agree that should be the name if this idea ever gets selected.

Futuristic music is tough for me to digest- I actually think of a lot of very old things when the term is used, but it's a concept I really, really wish would return to pop mainstream, and no, autotuned robot voices don't count.

It's something I'd love to try although I'm almost certain I'd accidentally make something that sounds old.

Futuristic and science fiction sounds is what I love. Absolute fan.

Sent some samples of that kind to Sonicade for #50

This samplepack is largely electronic sounds. Definitely could make a futuristic scifi tune in this round.
