musical genre map

Every Noise At Once musical genre map, examples of songs in all sorts of genres, if you're looking for examples of the difference between deep tropical house and disco polo, or detroit techno and melbourne bounce.

"Deep Orchestral" is so deep, it's piano :-|

Huh. And only has one artist underneath it, which doesn't have any samples. :raised_eyebrow:

Cool! More cultural literacy for me to catch up on, now that I'm trying to be more aware of music (the square dance calling is giving that a focus).

This is fun. I've been exploring a new musical idea lately, something which feels like it falls between existing genres, a sound made possible only recently by some new technology - and I have no idea what to call it, as I try to elicit feedback from music-loving friends, so they can understand what it is I'm trying to do. Perhaps I can describe it in terms of its location on this map.

Also, thanks for that essay, brennen. I shared it with a friend, who likes to say that she remembers the history of her life in association with the music she was listening to at the time...
