a lot of it is either j-pop or classically influenced.


the j-pop is kinda out of the ordinary but the classical is pretty commonplace.



not sure how many would consider this weird but i find it fun.

Videogame music has something in common with J-Music, but Videogame music is the more unusual.

It's very rare find someone in real life who likes videogame music, I know some people who likes J-Music, but only my siblings and a classmate from college enjoys videogame music.

Also I like some downtempo music, and I don't know anyonewho likes it :?.

I am not into video games but I might like the music, I only been a little into PC games and I liked the music of games like Unreal (electronic music) Doom and Doom 2, I have mp3 remixed versions of those games. Mostly I like music of games when they are electronic or fully orchestral

Yeah music from games is unusual, I don't see people actually to care about it, its the same with music from films. I like Harry Gregson-Williams music.

If you like Mr. Bungle,check out the new John Zorn record "Six Litanies for Heliogabalus" on Tzadik..it features an amazing Patton improv.

I guess “unusual” can be misinterpreted. GYBE is not that obscure, but I would call it unusual because there aren’t many other “rock” bands that play that kind of music. It’s closer to the instrumental music you would hear in a movie or video game score than traditional rock music. I was just wondering if it’s a common aspie/autism trait to like instrumental music that doesn’t have the normal pop “hooks”.

I’ve also been looking online for dissonant ambient stuff but haven’t bought anything. I’ve found stuff like “Lull” and “Northaunt”. I like the atmosphere, but it’s hard to tell from the online samples if it will be too repetitive for me.

I think so, it might be an aspie trait to like instrumental over pop, I actually prefer music that don't say anything so you can relate it to anything you want, and not what the performer is relating to.

Ambient music great, it is relaxing actually. When hearing a non rythmic or ambient electronic song, and I suddenly hear a dissonant chord, it gives me a good feeling, don't know if this is what you mean.

I can listen to the Conet Project for hours,and used to fall asleep scanning shortwave for numbers stations.I think they are beautiful and soothing:

And some of you may not be familiar with these other artists:

http://www.impetusdistribution.co.uk/cs ... er.id.html (esp. I-IV)
http://www.tammen.org/
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Derek_Bailey

I might also be inclined to list music I truly love like the Art Bears or Bob Drake,ad infinitum,but they are/were clearly prog+avant-garde.Established and recognizable idioms,if I can clearly hear an artist's cultural lineage,do not strike me as particularly "unusual".

I'm actually not that big on Rammstein overall, even though I like Industrial/Metal. "Du Hast" is a great song, yes, but they have no variety--practically all of their songs sound the same, which is one of the things I dislike about pop music in the first place. I'd probably like them better if they weren't so popular, though...I guess I just feel like there are a lot of way better bands of their type that nobody's heard about.


Dude, you know you avatar is awesome, but your music knowledge is next to non existent.

Rammstein for example does actually have alot of variety.

Also Evanescence does not and never did have any connection to Goth, they take influence from alot of sources I'm sure, but not Goth.

http://www.sing365.com/music/lyric.nsf/ ... A00007E1F4

This Biography supports, what I say as it mentions taking influence from Gothic Rock unintentionaly, probably because of Type O Negative which is Gothic Doom according to what I know, which is somewhat influenced by Gothic Rock.

veresae: musically, you are spot-on on rammstein. yet, i guess its because i speak german natively - the whole phenomenon is just great. they are borderlining on so many things, being so much at once, that no one knows how to react to them properly.

as for industrial: there is alot of confusion over the term industrial because several things are labelled industrial - things that dont have much, if anything, in common.
there is the classical (first) industrial movement, of which music was only one facet. bands like genocide organ, brighter death now, deutsch nepal etc... play this kind of music.
then, there is some kind of american industrial, which nine inch nails, skinny puppy and the like are meant with. also, rammstein is often labelled industrial... this kind of industrial seems to be more closely related to a rock/electronica crossover background.
and then, a lot of electro is classified as industrial, as soon as it sounds stomping and machinery-like enough. see :wumpscut:, feindflug, etcetera...

yet, the term industrial didnt derive from a specific sound but a label: industrial records, founded by members of throbbing gristle.


It had to be said.
