A genre characterized by having no characteristics. It’s all about experimentation, and doing what you feel like doing, rather than conforming to any rules.
Aphex Twin is the best example of the groups I listen to. Take ‘Come to Daddy’ for example. The song has elements of glitch, drone, punk, death metal and some things that defy explanation. Yet, the track stays together all the way through and is something you can dance to.
Most of my Dance tracks fall into this category, for the simple reason that I almost never start a track with any kind of plan. I tend to just start playing until I hit something that interests me, then I work it till it talks sweet for me.
For doing IDM, go wild. Do whatever you want, there are no rules.
I like just throwing 5 or 6 elements in with a beat and working on them till I like it.
I’m an anarchist and an eclectic pagan, my style of magick is best described as chaos magick. I make it up as I go. There is something incredible about applying that same freedom to making music.
I call my personal style ChaosCore. I use the philosophy of ‘just do it and see what happens’.
Try going through your loop folders and just grabbing a bunch of random loops. Then play with them. Don’t try to sound like anything else, just make it sound good to yourself. Be as wild and imaginative as you want to be. No restraints, nothing holding you back. idm crack
Just go for it and see what happens. You might be pleasantly surprised by the results. And if it does sound bad, sit it aside for awhile then go back to it, and play some more.
