Multimedia, AV Every so often we publish here at OSNews articles about copyright, about the war of the "old media" establishment against everyone else. Many, myself included, have argued that the way to get out of this mess -- short of changing the law -- is to have more artists release their work under a Creative Commons license. However, after a few years it became obvious to me that CC would never be able to change the industry all by itself. Offering a Free license, and having 30,000 albums released under it, was still not enough. Until the Summer of 2009, that is. Update: Added audio samples.

>Electronic music isn't about trying to accurately synth real instruments.

I never said it is, so I don't like how you started your comment about myself "not having a clue".

The problem is that chillwave is supposed to be more natural and more blending-in music, and so they need to add filters to hide the very "clear" sound of electronic-generated music. That's what I meant, not that other electronic types of music need to do so too.

As for the rest of your rant, I can assure you that I'm familiar with electronic music. I'm European anyway, and electronic was huge in the '90s, when I was younger (my brother was a DJ too at the time). The problem with it is that most of it sounds robotic. And when it doesn't sound robotic, it's because it's masqueraded pop. Therefore, after about 35 years, true electronic music is still considered largely underground music. Sure, there's Moby and Zero7, and any of these dream-sounding electronic artists, but again, their music while somewhat ambient, it fails to do what chillwave does: unearth memories.

Chillwave instead is all about emotion and memories. The fact that it's electronic too is besides the point, rather than shouting it from the rooftops as other electronic music does with its compositions. And everyone else agrees that chillwave it's is own genre btw (granted, created out of 4-5 different genres from the '80s, but that's the fashion that every other genre is created).
