Where the fuck are they? Any ideas?
but then I cant qite remember what dynamics are... can any one explain?
thats most music then aint it? But I vote for Murcof cos some of the time you dont even realise the album is on than others he blasts ya with organs and all sorts... oh you want bands
even if it was just between the verses and chorus.
Low, on the album Trust anyhow
does aphex twin count?
I don't know where to start
Scott Walker - The Drift
...I'm not entirely certain, but... is this a completely stupid question? I think this is a really properly retarded question.
a bit unsure
dynamics are great. but a lot of bands do underuse them, and are either really loud all the time or really quiet all the time or don't move between the extremes very effectively.
Cursive cursive cursive. Masterful use of dynamics.
pretty much base their entire ethos around dynamics and sensitivity. good call on Envy, too.
more than anyone I reckon.
I love The Drift
Or indeed any band.
Most of the stuff in this thread is pretty inappropriate...the dynamics used by a band like the pixies are pretty timid.
I am beginning to think this was a stupid question tho...I blame digital media.
have always been traditionally a note to the performer (pp < ff etc). ie) they are always most evident in a live performance. the way popular music is mastered its very difficult to hear any real contours in the sound.
It's just frustrating to go back to 'indie' when so much classical music is awesome at this.
that was my first thought when i saw this thread
Deduct ten points!
On the other hand, you might not..
of dynamics - but no post rock? You're shooting yourself somewhat in the foot I think here.
I would advise on getting over your post rock prejudice and putting on 'those who tell the truth shall die...' by Explosions in the sky. try it.
go listen to It's All Gonna Break
Hell Is For Heroes
