Plenty of women in early-electronic music too and so forth.

Female toasters as well - Lady Saw is fucking scary.

Well, in that case, have you noticed how the majority of Authecre's fans seem to be white males into rock music?

A gross misconception about music produced electronically is that it is often only repetitive and it hasn't got soul. Generally, as usual, these are accusations thrown by the short-sighted bigot, way too often male and white.

you know, when you don't explain yourself or provide a platform for your argument, statements you make retain no validity and make you sound like a bandwagon jumper.

Glitch (also known as clicks and cuts from a representative compilation series by the German record label Mille Plateaux) is a genre of electronic music that became popular in the late 1990s with the increasing use of digital signal processing, particularly on computers. The origins of glitch music are derived from the failure of digital technology. The effects of failure in technology, such as bugs, crashes, system errors, hardware noise, skipping and audio distortion, can be captured on computers and provide the basic building blocks of Glitch music.[2] Often considered a sub-genre of electronica or intelligent dance music, glitch eschews traditional instrumentation, preferring instead the use of mechanized and non-natural sounds. Though rhythm is a central focal point of glitch, the style's various sub-genres range from the ambient to the dance-oriented. [3]


Glitch is often produced on computers using modern digital production software to splice together small "cuts" (samples) of music from previously recorded works. These cuts are then integrated with the signature of glitch music: beats made up of glitches, clicks, scratches, and otherwise "erroneously" produced or sounding noise. These glitches are often very short, and are typically used in place of traditional percussion or instrumentation. Skipping CDs, scratched vinyl records, circuit bending, and other noise-like distortions figure prominently into the creation of rhythm and feeling in glitch; it is from the use of these digital artifacts that the genre derives its name. However, not all artists of the genre are working with erroneously produced sounds or are even using digital sounds.




The overlap between glitch and shoegazer music also includes some artists that have moved away from the song structures and defined beats mentioned above, favouring more ambient forms. The general shoegazer style of pop rock melodies buried under layers of reverberation and distortion is combined with the precise programming capabilities of digital signal processing. Fennesz and Tim Hecker are two notable artists that have received critical praise for their compositions done in this style. The looped constructions of lovesliescrushing, from about 1992, demonstrated a pre-glitch sound. Later, in 2000, the band ventured into the computer realm by translating their signature four track guitar damage into an iMac to produce glissceule and voirshn, dubbed glitch bliss. The duo Belong has also released music of this nature. In addition to comparing them to other ambient or electronic musicians, reviewers and fans also tend to mention the similarities to My Bloody Valentine (arguably the most highly regarded band of the early 1990s shoegazer movement). The primary point of similarity is the emphasis placed on the texture of the music; it appears to play as important a role as the melodies themselves. Also, see Labradford, The Night Owl Cafe Killers, or Little Glitches for similarly ambient/glitch sounds.

so much music around, and so little time.

and hey cantank, I have no beef with electronic music as a musical idom, I just HATE boring monotonous house music, fucking electronic background music. it makes me ill. I want my music to grab me by the balls and shake me until I give in.

A lot of electronic music is still a sausage-fest, mind you. Autechre patch-fetishes are nearly worse than a million-paged thread about effect pedals.



With a lot of electronic music I just happened to notice that women tend to come to the fore a lot more, and also they tend to be more.....women. That means that, say, Kelis can make a form of slightly edgier pop while still being able to look after the way she dresses and maybe occasionally have a hit, while still being listened to by certain guitar music dudes that don't feel challenged by that sort of mild female otherness in their musical experience.

I'm not saying anything new or revelatory here, but in a full-on rock music enviroment a woman would have more trouble expressing herself and being taken seriously unless, in a way, she doesn't get an attitude of some sort, and one that falls within the parameters of what's considered real and entertaining in rock music. Or else she becomes, like you pointed out already, an ornamental and mainly silent creature, put there to be impressed, shown off or possesed by her male lurers, often with a tamburine in her hand or an intense song to sing.

Again, I am generalising, not all rock chicks experience that.

I query your use of the word 'might' - remember, that suggests an element of doubt.
