I just discovered this form or music recently and it is perfect for the digital nomadic life. when i am drawing something on my ipad i just tune in to the music on my big screen hdtv and my homepod wireless speaker and just zone out.

it also sort of reminds me of a better time before true capitalism in Poland took over and also as one of the songs is called "what could have been" if we allied or really became united with Russia.

synth wave music...I just discovered this form or music recently

It's good and has been around since the 1960s.

Synthesizers were developed in the capitalist United States before going global.

I've read that the now deceased musician Prince (he died a few years ago from an accidental fentanyl overdose) was actually a fan of the work of the still active British musician Gary Numan who came to fame in the 1970s using synthesizers.

"what could have been" if we allied or really became united with Russia.

Nah. Too much bad blood.

The closest to anything like that was Congress Poland. That wasn't an alliance but it was a period lasting well over a century when a large swathe of Poland was effectively absorbed into Russia.

But Poles always prefer independence.

Have you heard about the 1863 January Uprising?

It is as inspiring as the 1944 Warsaw Uprising and the Solidarity movement of the 1980s.

A synthesizer from God himself...No integrated circuits from China used.

God wins again

That version of Agnus Dei is a very good traditional work. Especially since from what I read about it the Latin words were added in the late swinging 1960s and by an American composer named Samuel Barber. According to his biography he was in a homosexual relationship which lasted 40 years.

I like this one better:

Kyrie Eleison In G Minor, Kcc 089 · Kyiv Chamber Choir

Ancient. Ethereal. Slavic. What's not to like?

Sounds like Barber's Adagio for Strings to me.

Yes, it is. The most perfect composition ever if you want to think about the meaning of life. It also shows how men and women working together in harmony can create magical things.

Interesting genre. Just in case anyone is unfamiliar with the New Retro Wave trend, now is the time :)

My definition of music: a series of sounds an average person can repeat - if not the whole thing, at least some of it. Therefore, random sounds without the beginning, the middle, and the end are not music.

Also, real music does not tolerate errors. Banging a frying pan on another frying pan can easily tolerate errors in the intensity and the frequency of banging, hence, it's music only to the weirdos who play it. Based on this brilliant definition, Asians are not capable of composing music.

On the other hand, hit the wrong key playing Chopin, and 6 billion people would notice it.

playing Chopin,

Can an "average person" "repeat" it?

Asians are not capable of composing music.

Anoushka Shankar might disagree.

Anoushka Shankar

And her sister.

Yes. Not on the piano but humming. Good enough as a test. Certainly recognize.
Synthesized stuff is cool but that's all.

A few bars maybe.

And her sister.

And her father.

Very dated now though.

Even if they can't, the best way a listener can show his appreciation is if he wants to play it again. No garbage like that German rock meets this condition. In fact, we are grateful and feel relieved when it's over.
