A help identifying some instruments Gastarbeiter 11/20/2019 (Wed) 20:39:25 No.194 [Reply]
I'd like some help in identifying the instruments in the photo.
In particular, the one held by the man on the left and the one on the right placed on top of the table (it's bent in a strange way and hangs down the table.)

Long version (in italian): >>>/ita/865
Short version: some time ago, I discovered about the "gabusifonio", which, after a lot of research, turned out to be an instrument created by Giuseppe Gabusi near the end of 1800.
I'm trying to find out exactly what this instrument looked like and this photo is the only lead I have right now.

>>194 Instrument on the box next to him on the right is a baronet
>>288 Sorry I meant Baritone

>>194 The one in his hand is a rotary valve trombone(first pic related), the one on the counter might be a Cimbasso(second pic related) that was almost exclusively used in Italian operas in the 19th century or a contrabass valve trombone. Hope that helps.

Asian Indie/Alt Gastarbeiter 02/10/2020 (Mon) 13:22:19 No.273 [Reply]
Asian Alternative Indie Rock General Japanese Scene I personally like to collect issues from Zankyo Record as they are the host for my fav Té. And many other bands like cinema staff, ppl, cabs (disbanded :'(). They are producing so many talented artists. Thinking of ordering people in Boxes albums. Wish I could try their music before getting overseas. Outside of these I have listened downy from felicity. They sum up my teenage years. Let me know thoughts. What other music should be looked into from Japanese scene? Or beyond, within Asia? (Bbl with my reviews on Korean labels, later)
Can't embed here? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AY-nsVj5o4I That's Ichiko Aoba, you'll probably like it.
>>285 I see

I like this album a lot. What do you all think?
3 posts omitted.
I much prefer Discipline.
Level Five/The ConstruKction of Light is their best work, although In the Court of the Crimson King is definitely up there. I think half the fun of King Crimson is how much they change genre even within an album.
It's my 2nd favorite with Red and Islands in-between it, I like that "electric tube" tone the former has and just has 5 extremely solid songs while Court is marginally less so. >>226 They're one of the few progressive rocks bands that are (or were) progressive which is why Fripp dismantled because of the state of prog at the time.
I like Starless and Bible Black and Larks' Tongues in Aspic better.

Things you hate in music. Gastarbeiter 12/23/2019 (Mon) 00:04:47 No.227 [Reply]
I'll start. >downloading an album after hearing a sample and finding out the song you heard first was the high point >one section of a song is good and the rest is just ok >ending a song with a slow drumroll (see Motörhead - The Hammer)
>repetitive vocal samples, especially when they're pushed to the forefront of the mix >rock bands playing parts in unison >dopey "classic rock" guitar work >when a song is booking along nicely with propulsive drumming and guitar work and then slows the tempo down to some crappy, plodding riff that sounds like a bucket of diarrhea I'm looking at you, "Rusty Cage." >rock vocalists that imitate old negro bluesmen >guitar strings squeaking >clicky double-bass drumming, wimpy drums in general >songs focused more on lyrics or furthering some gimmicky concept than creating a solid piece of music
I could be here all day, but I'll stick to just 5 things off the top of my head that really get on my tits: >fade-outs Just make a proper fucking ending, even if you just suddenly cut to a crash cymbal or a reverb tail or something, anything but a lazy fucking fade-out. >overusage of sidechain compression / turning up the kick so loud that everything else audibly ducks when it hits I've hated this nauseating sound ever since it came in fashion in the early to mid 00s, it honestly makes me feel sick. It only ever makes things sound worse, I don't get why anyone does it. >ADHD hi-hats doing 32nd note autism Nigger please stop that shit, your "beat" isn't "sick" just because you went full parkinson's on the hats. >wonky beats / early/late kicks/snares It doesn't sound good or make you sound cool, it just sounds out of time and like you don't know how to trim the silence from your drum samples. >shitty breakdown cliches: pitched 808 snare rolls, sweeps out the ass, synths rising in pitch, the bit at the end where everything drops out except for some dumb vocal line, coming back in with just the kick and a shitty synth patch It got old a decade ago, dump that shit the same place you put your autotune abuse and the word "shorty".
>>257 >vid related nigger everyone
>>257 I'm tired of looking up DAW-related videos and coming across these clueless hip-hop "producers" who think everything is a "beat."

/mu/ makes an album: Gunt Edition Spalding 11/18/2019 (Mon) 18:01:52 No.192 [Reply]
A bunch of /mu/tants has banded together into "Autistic Rage Festival" to create music.
We have been doing this for quite some time, and across several chans.
Now YOU have the chance to unleash your inner musician and/or autist and join the good cause.
Each time, we will put all the music posted in this thread into one album, and then we will listen to that album together.

I messed up last time, so we listen to the album of this edition, as well as the previous one.

Feel free stop in the cytube room before the listenalong, Muscises will do a 45 minute /vgmg/ segment.
By request, we are doing the listenalong in a different cytube room:


We will be rolling for artwork and album title in this other thread:

Deadline and listenalong:
Which is the same as:
Listen to previous Autistic Rage Festival albums:
If you come to the stream around 6:50pm EST, you will be able to watch AniMusic 1 & 2 with us.
Thought I could stay up for this one but nah.
I'll give it a listen when it goes up on the bandcamp.
Anyone know if ARF gonna go to 8kuntz or is it actually dead now?
>>216 We're moving "back" to 8kun, but will keep posting on 314ch and julay as well
>>225 Good stuff we need all the people we can get. ARF requires autism.

/mu/ for the Infinity Cup 2020! Gastarbeiter 12/11/2019 (Wed) 20:47:47 No.219 [Reply]
Hey lads.
We are currently streaming the group phase of the current year's 8chanCup (or as it's more properly known as the Infinity Cup) but due to the exodus and 8ch hiccups we've lost a few teams whose boards never really recovered.
We're wondering if you guys are still interested in it, because in that case you may want to go to the wiki, edit some stuff out for the team and apply to join the next one!

All you need to do is create a wiki entry of your own team over at http://infinitycup.shoutwiki.com/wiki/Main_Page (use the layout of other teams as a preset), coming up with members/players that represent your board's culture and in-jokes, create a proper emblem and jersey combo and optionally choose strategies, skills and exportable 3d models using the rules set up at http://infinitycup.shoutwiki.com/wiki/Rules and we'll make sure to consider your application for the future pot.
I should mention that we would also really appreciate if you came over to our cup's stream at https://cytu.be/r/8cup to spectate what the cup's really all about and to propose your own ideas to make it even better.
See you on the field!
