The Rise of the Indie Electronic Music Scene
A blog about how homemade electronic music went from a hobby to being a real product.
Electronic music has always been a part of the mainstream, but in the past it was relegated to being a genre for geeks and nerds. But in the past few years, this has changed and some of our biggest artists have been coming out with albums that are very much in this vein. Let’s look at a few examples.
First, let’s take Daft Punk. They are one of the most successful electronic music acts today, but they started out as a duo that made their own songs and played them on the radio and at parties. They were not really taken seriously until they had an album ready for release, but then something happened that changed everything: their song “Da Funk” came out on their first album, Homework, and it went platinum in less than two weeks. The next thing you know, everyone is listening to them and everyone wants to be them!
Next is Aphex Twin. He was just an unknown artist when he released his first album I Care Because You Do in 1994. It did pretty well for itself, selling over 200,000 copies worldwide, but that wasn’t enough to keep him going
Electronic music has grown exponentially in the last decade. This is mainly due to the rise of indie electronic music and the internet. The internet has allowed for a democratization of electronic music production, as well as other forms of art.
Before you needed money to hire people, pay for studio time and advertise your music through radio and TV advertisements. Now it’s easier than ever to make electronic music and get it on streaming services like Spotify, iTunes and Soundcloud, without paying anything. Electronic music artists have been able to change the way we listen to and make music.
One of the biggest hurdles for aspiring musicians was creating high-quality recordings of their songs. You used to need recording studios and engineers who knew how to use them. Now anyone with a computer can download free software (like Garageband) that allows them to record their own songs at home or on their phones!
And because most people already have smartphones, they don’t even need instruments anymore either. They just need an app that turns the phone into an instrument like piano keys or drums.”
Electronic music is making a comeback. It’s been years since the glory days of the 80s and 90s, when bands like Daft Punk and The Prodigy were topping the charts. Now we’re seeing a new wave of up-and-coming electronic artists that are quickly gaining popularity.
However, this time around things are a bit different. Instead of being produced by large record labels, most of the new music is coming from independent (indie) artists who make their own beats in their bedrooms or basements on computers and sell them online through sites like Bandcamp or Soundcloud.
This shift has created a whole new genre of music called “Indie Electronic”, which encompasses everything from EDM to Hip Hop to Pop. And it’s not just limited to bands either; many artists have solo careers as well!
In this blog post I’ll be exploring why indie electronic music has become so popular over the past few years, as well as some specific examples of what makes it unique compared with other genres.
One reason why indie electronic music has been gaining popularity is because it’s easier than ever before for people to create their own songs using digital instruments like synthesizers and samplers. This means anyone can make beats without spending thousands of dollars on
The world of electronic music has always been a bit of a niche market, but the last decade has seen a major change in the way that musicians produce and share their work. Once upon a time, electronic musicians would have to either sign with a record label or sell their CDs out of the trunk of their car. Now, anyone with an Internet connection can hear your music for free, and if they like what they hear, they can buy some for themselves.
The reason for this change is twofold: first, the costs associated with producing electronic music have dropped dramatically in recent years due to advances in software development; second, the Internet makes it possible to make your music available to anyone with an Internet connection, thus allowing you to reach a wide audience without having to pay for physical media distribution costs.
This means that even if you’re just starting out as an electronic musician, you should be able to get your first album out there on the Internet and start building up a fan base before you need to worry about finding investors or getting signed by major labels. In fact, many successful artists started out this way when they were still students at college!
Electronic music production has been around for a long time, but it wasn’t until the last decade that the tools became affordable and powerful enough for the average musician to create a professional sounding song. The advent of the Internet made it possible to distribute the music, and suddenly electronic music was being taken seriously.
Electronic music production is now more accessible than ever before, and in this post I’ll be exploring the rise of electronic music, from its inception as a hobby to what it is today: an industry.
Electronic music can be defined as music that uses electronics for its creation and reproduction. There are many different types of electronic music, such as house, techno, trance and dubstep. Electronic music is generally created using software programs called Digital Audio Workstations (DAWs). The most popular DAW is Ableton Live, which was first released in 2001.
The rise of electronic music began with the invention of the synthesizer in 1964. The first synthesizers were analog devices that used oscillators to create sound waves that could be manipulated by filters and other effects.
Electronic music has been around in some form since the late 1800s. Since then, it has evolved into hundreds of different genres and subgenres. It is difficult to describe the broad range of musical styles that can fall under the umbrella term of electronic music. Electronic music can be as simple as a MIDI version of a classical piano piece, or as complex as an orchestral symphony that uses both acoustic and electronic instruments.
Electronic music began to be created for entertainment purposes in the mid 20th century. Some notable pioneers are Delia Derbyshire, Daphne Oram and Pierre Henry. Their early experiments with tape loops and musique concrete led to what was to become known as electronic music. Many modern genres have their roots in these early pioneers’ work.
The first commercial synthesizer was invented by Robert Moog in the 1960s, and he founded his own company, Moog Music, to manufacture these instruments. The first mainstream use of the synthesizer was in 1967 by The Doors’ keyboard player Ray Manzarek on their song “Light My Fire.”
