Music for altered states. - Page 4

post #46 of 102
The great thing about electronic music is that while it has no musical merit, on the right cocktail it sounds like god himself is talking to you. Goa/psytrance all the way. I have some of my favourite tracks here

The only music for altered states is the music one makes while growing one's walrus moustache.

You don't know a lot about music, do you?

I know some of those people are classically trained. Brian Transeau (BT) is one of them.

My sister and my girlfriend are professional musicians, and I sing. However, I was joking with that statement about electronic music. Perhaps a lot of mainstream garbage with generic synth #43 has little musical merit, but the people making the best music absolutely know what they're doing.

BT is amazing, Flaming June is classic.

Ah, I took your comment at face value and I apologize. I'm a classically trained singer and musician who is attending Berklee and Harvard for Electronic Music Composition, so I'm a little defensive when it comes to the subject. I still have extended family who think I create music by grouping keyboard loops together.

Haha if I was attending Berklee and Harvard and someone bashed my fields, I'd get offended even if I was double majoring in spousal abuse and selling crack to kids

If by "altered states" you mean "high on e."

I do not think "Death Fuck" by The Tuss is conducive to listens coinciding with use of MDMA good sir.

To make this post non-useless, I give you "My White Bicycle" by Tomorrow:

now i don't do drugs but have tried quite a few times in the past. i guess chicane, hed kandi, tiesto and paul van dyk would be my choices for e music. van dyk is creepy in that you can put a song in repeat and not know when it starts again. for weed music i like common's the light and erykah badu's bag lady,also steve miller band's the joker. for coke i would go with black betty by ram jam, you shook me all night long by acdc, can't you hear me knocking by the rolling stones. but i suggest you drop all these and learn to appreciate jazz. can't go wrong with a little miles davis. koop and st. germain offer some electronic jazz so if you have a hard time switching over and giving up the party lifestyle immediately i suggest you stat there.

This is a great thread. I have been reading through it and either re-discovering some music I had lost in my busy life, and discovering some music I had never heard. I've added probably 50 songs to my "Chill Music" playlist thanks to this thread.

Yeah, I'm resurrecting my own thread. Why? Because, a. I can and b. fuck you.

Seriously though, people's suggestions in here, combined with some from my friends, have opened up a whole new field of music to me. Portishead and Animal Collective are some of my favorite bands now, to mention a couple. So thanks guys.

Anyway, I would like to add:

"Salvador Sanchez"- Sun Kil Moon
Shit, the whole album is incredible. But I feel this song is the most overtly trip. Also, Brian, if you're reading this, thank you. About a year ago I saw you praising it on the music thread, but Rhapsody didn't have it. Fast forward to about a month ago. I got an eMusic subscription and somehow the title "Ghosts of the Great Highway" had been tumbling round the back of my head so I found and downloaded it and now I'm listening to it all the time.

"Ladies and Gentlemen We Are Floating in Space"- Spiritualized
Wow.

Devedra Banhart
Anything is good. Between this and Animal Collective, I'm kind of getting into freak folk.

And last, but not least, I've started listening to Cypress motherfucking Hill again.
