    Default Trance Music

    Opinions anyone?

    I'm actually quite partial to the genre. Music production is something that exites me - you know, faders, filters, thet sort of thing. Applying the techniques in Trance to the production of classical music may be useful! What do you think?

    Trance is a style of electronic music that developed in the 1990s. Trance music is generally characterized by a tempo of between 130 and 160 BPM, featuring repeating melodic synthesizer phrases, and a musical form that builds up and down throughout a track. It often features crescendos and breakdowns. Sometimes vocals are also utilized.

    I like psychedelic trance, mostly dark psychedelic trance, some artists in that I like are kindzadza, I don´t think it in general combines well with classical music, its very different, which is why I like it. It has something I don´t find in other music, which is why I like it.

    (sorry for digging up old topics, but I see no point in making a new one if there´s still an old one laying around somewhere that fits the subject)

    I am quite the Trance fan myself. I am primarily a fan of the genre Psychedelic Trance, or more commonly known as Psytrance, which, obviously, is Trance with a very thick Psychedelic feel.

    My favorite songs from the genre are:
    Magic Mushroom by 1200 Micrograms http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B4pIxnuUG1k
    LSD by Hallucinogen http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X9dAEbuNFQE

    The pace depends on which subgenre you are talking about though. Original trance is about that, but as the genre spread into subgenre, it gained speed.

    Lol, my musical taste is very wide. I listen to primarily Metal, Classical, Jazz, and Trance, but also love Rock, Rap (underground artists), Blues, Techno, etc. My taste is very wide, lol

    Mine isn´t as wide I think, its mostly limited to classical, metal, psytrance, psychedelic rock and very random things I discovered and like, but I think its still rather uncommon, with a lot of genres there is this elitism and misunderstanding of other music, so very mixed tastes is not something you see a lot.

    Just posting my favorite kind of trance in the form of a sample. This is by Kindzadza, dark psytrance is identified by the fact it usually quite fast, 150 bpm, and quite chaotic, focussing much more on the samples and effects then ´softer´ forms of psy. To me, dark sounds the most ´psychedelic´ which I know is a hard term to actually describe properly, but if it sounds like you´re tripping when you´re not, they´re doing it right. Kindzadza is the psy master in my opinion.

    I´ll warn you though, most people here will most likely strongly detest this, it focusses a lot on a repetative beat, it has practically no melody at all. I like it.

    I simply loved this. Show me more please. This is so exquisite music!
    When I was a teenager and listened a little bit of psytrance I never found something very far from Infected Mushroom.
    By the way, do you know Ah Cama-Sotz? It's not trance but I think you'd like it...

    I can give you some names to browse, the artist from the same is Kindzadza, he has produced two cd´s, waves from inner space and waves from outer space, the track is from the first one. Psytrance artists that sound somewhat a like that might be interesting are Penta and Furious. Even more into the irregulair and dark is Osom.
