Which one, the one that develops or the monotonous droning one?

  1. Hi :)

    In this thread:


    Mike called a cue from Jurassic Park, Indy Jones, or Han Solo a monotonous droning cue. I assume he was talking about the latter.

    I was hoping to hear an explanation as to what is wrong with it? Personally, I like it - but what do I know? Hoping to learn a thing or two here :)

    Nobody can or should tell you what to like. If you like monotonous, droning music, what's the problem? Listening to music should be a joyous thing. And when it comes to monotonous and droning, these days you'll have a nearly limitless number of pieces to enjoy. This does not sound like an action item which needs fixing.

    Here we don't talk about good music or bad music - we focus on the music being a product of craft; skill; control; intent. Our goal, if we're writing droning, monotonous music, is that it's not because we couldn't write an engaging, structured, masterwork of depth, but because we chose to write a monotonous, droning piece instead. Now, it tends to follow that once you can do more, you tend to not enjoy doing less, but that's really separate. Ignorance is bliss, but mastery is infinitely more.

    But we also tend to be a self-selected set - those here are usually already in search of more for themselves; more control over their destinies; more experience and depth of knowledge. So if that's the goal, pick a thing and ask about it; try it; get feedback about it. That's what it's all about.
