All Sounds the Same to me....

#1 Post by Big Bad Bill » Mon Aug 13, 2012 3:49 am

The scientific journal 'Reports' has shown that in the last 50 years, pop music has become louder, the timbre of different instruments has become similar so there's a very restricted variety of tones and the 'diversity of transitions between note combinations' has consistently diminished.' The researchers, led by an artificial intelligence specialist, analysed songs from 1955 to 2010 from the Million Song Dataset and found that 'pop songs have become intrinsically louder and more bland in terms of the chords, melodies and types of sound used.'

So when you hear the latest music chart pap and you find it preferable to poke yourself in the eye with a stick than listen to 3 minutes of it, you'll know why.
