    Default Is Vocaloid Music?

    Thread inspired by a conversation Blue Footed Booby and I were discussing. Anyways he says Vocaloid is not music because it's not made by humans. However I find what he is saying completely idiotic, the voices are provided by humans, the instruments are played by humans (in live concerts), and humans make the songs. Anyways discuss~

    EDIT: Side question: Is it art?

    Anime you always misconstrue situations. We were arguing about whether or not it was art, not music.


    And the reason no one posts in music is because no one here knows a damn thing about it. //2



    kk there's the quote you forgot to c/p.

    You're only partially correct about the voices. It uses voice sampling. I.e. just different sounds and not complete words. And if people can get famous using auto tune to hell I don't see why Vocaloid can't be considered music. Besides there's two other way you can look at it. The program can be considered an instrument itself like a guitar or piano or similar to what music samplers do.

    kk there's the quote you forgot to c/p.
    We were talking about it being music and then you changed it to art when you started to figure out you were wrong, anyways it's art.

    " The expression or application of human creative skill and imagination, typically in a visual form such as painting or sculpture, producing works to be appreciated primarily for their beauty or emotional power."

    Humans have to have creativity to create those songs, they didn't just pop out of thin air.

    Yeah they do. I've been youtubing. This is all incredibly easy stuff to write. Music is math, and these songs are like 2+2. Not very impressive.

    And as I told you in chat, you were being trolled. o_O

    Anyone who says Vocaloid music is not true music cannot be my friend. Also, saying that music must be made by humans is quite arrogant in my opinion. I consider even things like bird chirping and tree rustling music.

    As for the question of whether or not it's art... Hmm, just about anything can be considered a form of art, some good, some bad. I guess, yes? But regarding this question I'll perfectly okay if someone says it's not art, since my concept of art is kinda muddy.

    Much different than a guitar. The programs they use to produce this music are really easy to use. They do not require years of practice to get good with. You could do it, easily. Guitar/Piano/real instruments take a lifetime of dedication, pointing and clicking does not. It's no more difficult than replying to this post.

    I know this because I use said programs, and play many instruments.

    So you're saying that only living entities can produce music?

    Guess what, I don't know about other cultures, but in East Asian culture at least, many natural sounds not produced by living organisms can also be considered music, especially since they have a greater fondness for the nature and Daoism. For example, the sound of a waterfall hitting on the rocks can be music, a gust of wind blowing through a narrow valley can be music, the sound of a rainfall can be music, etc. Modern instruments are merely more complex derivatives of those primitive forms of sounds.

    From a different angle, what's so different between a person who produces music with a violin and a person who produces music with a computer program?

    Except, for every good Vocaloid song I can give you five done poorly. Just because the program is easy to learn doesn't mean it's easy to master and use well. The basics are always easy to learn because that's the meaning of basic.

    Vocaloid is not music, it is a program that writes music. Music, as by definition, is the art or science of combining vocal or instrumental sounds (or both) to produce beauty of form, harmony, and expression of emotion. As such, what the program Vocaloid does, is make music. How music is made is irrelevant to whether it is or is not music.

    Except the program still follows your guidelines since the voice is created by sampling human voices and arranging them to form words.

    Yes, and? It is a program that writes music; a guitar is not music, neither is a piano or a human's ability to vocalize sound.

    Music written by Vocaloid is art in the same way as all other music. You can't call something music, and then turn around and not call it art. All music is art, but not all art is music.

For example, the sound of a waterfall hitting on the rocks can be music, a gust of wind blowing through a narrow valley can be music, the sound of a rainfall can be music, etc. Modern instruments are merely more complex derivatives of those primitive forms of sounds.

    From a different angle, what's so different between a person who produces music with a violin and a person who produces music with a computer program?
    That's a natural setting and something of nature creating said 'music'. Computers are synthetic and cynical. There is nothing beautiful about the sound of a keyboard of the click of a mouse... Unless you're a huge goddamn nerd.

    Aeschylus, you're being way too literal and I hope you understand that the 'music' created by these programs is no better or different than the music Brittany Spears produces(except that's not true because Brittany actually sings the lyrics//2,) if you look at it from the perspective of someone who understand Music Theory. Art comes from an individuals interpretation of something, whatever it may be. If you opened the program and threw a three chord chord progression down in a 4/4 time signature, and then opened a new project and did the same time it would turn out exactly the same. Take out a guitar and do the same thing. Listen to both tracks and neither one will sound the same(unless you don't have an ear and don't understand what the word subtle means.)

    Techno is redundant, and so is vocaloid, for the exact same reason. It takes out the human element, no actual human effort when into producing those sounds and beats and whatnot. It does not come off as if an individual created the song. There is no emotion. If you would prefer to stick to your computerized clinics, and dance to your synthetic band for superior cynics then by all means, go ahead, but most musicians do not really take it seriously.

    But it's okay!!111 You don't have to fret. Some people just don't have standards and you can't blame them for that. It's societies fault. O_O

    The foundation of music is math, but there needs to be that human element to really move people. A midi of Stairway to Heaven (and I hate Led Zeppelin) without the sloppy guitar work of Jimmy Page and the raspy I need to quit smoking vocals of Robert Plant would not at all have been as successful.

    Vocaloid is a product. It's three chord 4/4 pop music. It's a manipulative way to get people to give you money. It works -really- well on people who don't understand what they're listening to.

    Which, I assume is all of you. //2

    I'm sorry, as much as I want and try to respect everyone's opinion, that is the last straw. You're saying we don't understand music because we are not fluent in music theory like you, which is fine since you seem to be more conversed in the field of music theory as well as the mathematical and physical theories behind it.

    However, I cannot accept your statement that Vocaloid is merely a money-making tool. Now just what do you know about Volcaoid!? I am emotionally involved with many Volcaoid songs, and I appreciate them a lot more that your music theory-based "classical" songs. Do you have any idea how disrespectful you are being to the Vocaloid producers and fans, as well as those involved with other forms of non-traditional music?

    Just because you prefer your form of music, doesn't mean you can claim everyone else's preferences not music.

    I don't care about some "music theory," it's a "theory," it's not a proven "truth."

    ok then, signore... What is vocaloid to you? what do you classify it as? Every normal person would easily classify it as music.
    And I don't think you're not actually reading between the lines of the other posters. You just discuss the product itself, some here, most likely have Hatsune Miku's songs in mind while posting.

    Truth is a thing which only appears to those who have observed, considered, and made a choice. At the end of the path you chose lies the truth...Believe in it and continue without faltering.

    I've been calling it a product-- I mean music the whole time. I'm just saying it shouldn't be considered art(life altering art like the kind of stuff that is remembered -forever- after it's produced,) and wait ten years, and no one will give a damn. Except maybe you, you seem to take this stuff really seriously. It's a fad. Have fun with it, that much I have no problem with.

    I told anime I would not take this seriously until it was on a real music forum, and I still wont. You're all biased with you're anime and your.. Obsession with the Japanese culture. Which there's nothing wrong with, but it's uh.. Just not an objective or educated audience to be having the conversation with.

    If it is not different then it is still art. Knowing music theory doesn't change what music is.

    Your point being? Music made with a program sounds different than music made with real instruments. We're not going to get very far if you're just going to state what is obvious.

    How is techno redundant if people are not directly playing music? That doesn't even make sense.

    There are human elements in techno, it doesn't just pop into existence.

    Vocaloid is a program, which is sold as a product. Again, obvious. However, being 3 cord 4/4 pop music, which is music, doesn't mean it is not art. Also, anything sold is a manipulative way to make money.
