    Damn AudioSex!

    Great name btw. It's fitting. LOL I could always only compare music to sex. Nothing else really. Food is good, wine is good... but sex and music are the gods. :)

    I'm off watching "Actors Studio" on Youtube and going to sleep. See you later!

    I recommend Jonny Depp's episode. My favourite. He's a really great guy.

    This is from late 80's ?! :wow: ... I'm asking myself now in which planet i was living then?! Now i know that i've been looking for this kind of music since in the late 90's i saw a performance by a local group called "La Fura dels Baus" (known worldwide now). I liked a lot the music they used for their show, but when i asked my friends for that kind of music none of them could tell me anything about it except that the music they used was made by themselves (i.e.: no other groups doing the same kind of music, no nothing). So, i forget about it until someone start talking about industrial music in a thread in AudioZ a month or so ago, which made me think that perhaps that was the music i heard for the first time in the late 90's ... which it was!

    Thanks a lot SineWave for introducing me to Front Line Assembly! (found their discography in Spotify) :wink:
    Now, i need to know more groups/individuals doing this kind of music (past and present) ! ... Anyone ?!

    Not a problem my friend. :mates:

    It's 1280 X 698 but maybe it'll work for you (I don't know your resolution). Enjoy:

    Firstly, I think the wallpaper is from here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Burj_Khalifa

    Video Walls Incoming! (Remove if you have to... :( )

    Ok, since we expanded a little, I'll post some reference tracks (not all of them necessarily "industrial" per se, at least not in their entirety but they have some nice ideas, fx and aggressive, punchy feels): [Except those more 'canon' ones you mentioned]

    You're the man Feridan, great stuff. I was actually going to post that Sound on Sound Bill Leeb interview today. Thanks so much to you and everyone that posted here. You guys rock. :headbang:

    Also I have a question if someone would be so kind as to answer: If you were writing say an Industrial dance track would you have to key the kick? It seems weird to think that anyone in Industrial is doing that and I would think that the more dissonance the better. However if it were to be played in a club maybe it should be considered. I think the thing I love about Industrial in terms of listening to a song is the same thing that endlessly frustrates me when producing it. Since it's so open to interpretation and it doesn't really follow any guidelines I feel like I'm ambling aimlessly with no structure. Part of the thing that helped me progress as an artist was learning music theory and production techniques. Here it's like being a canary in a coal mine though I'm sure it's looked back at as a rite of passage when you finally succeed.

    My "Modern Primitiv" style is/was heavily influenced by MANY MANY genres, but industrial was one of the foremost...

    like any medium, to survive, industrial had to evolve...as it branched into many subgenres, the path i followed was that pioneered by Skinny Puppy legend Cevin Key (one of my personal heroes)


    When he explored the experimental electronic and industrial frontier with his band "Download" i finally felt i had a real connection with a type of music that noone else was making (this was in like 1996 so bear with me)

    I dreamed of making sonic tapestries, rich with Synesthesia-ic sound palletes, atonal and melodic qualities that would lead the listener into a artificial dream-like state... but with rhythms and beats and meticulous sonic sculpting... a juxtaposition of new and old, dirty textures and clean electronic stylings, unrepentant noise and harmonious ethereal melodies...but in 1996 i had no computer yet!!! (remember, Al Gore had just invented the internet)

    So basically i am saying his music, drove me to becoming a musician myself!

    skinny puppy changed my life, and the post-industrial download and tear garden refined it.





    Here is Download circa 1996 with their release:

    Base Metal

    Mallade

    and an ambient reflection on 1995 dystopian society: (prepare to lose yourself)

    Beehatch

    and for the real rivetheads like myself, check out this 1986 SP concert!

    Go Ogre!!!! His voice sounds amazing here...


    shit this STILL sounds revolutionary compared to what most people listen to..... 27 YEARS LATER!!!!! lol im only 34!!!!! I have to say, as if you couldnt guess, Skinny Puppy is one of my favorite bands ever

    good call catalyst, ive used sampleswap for the spoken word section and tv/movie quotes before, but i had forgotten all about it!


    *and if you remove the .php from the first link it will work- http://samples.kb6.de

    i checked it out, and they have a bunch of great video game sound set rips, great for 8-bit musicians

    thanks for sharing

    No problem man, glad to do it. I usually cut my own samples if I have the flick but it's a little annoying when it's surround sound though really not that difficult. I find that a lot of the time I can do a better job and get a clearer sample though sometimes I get lazy and get them from a site. I really like the first link because they have tons of drum machine samples. You can't download all of them until you donate a little to help cover server costs but there are tons that are available without a donation. Concerning the php code, I don't even know how it got in there. I thought I had already removed it.
