My mom has this cd for relaxation. It contains "music" with random notes, no rhythm, and no melody at all.
It simply starts with a hum or a pad, then bells or vibraphone comes in. And each song lasts like 20 min. Call that an extended play. LOL
Honestly, I do get relaxation from it tho.
Man, did that guy who created this made money from just randomly pressing any note on the keys. When all of us are squeezing our brains out figuring the right riff for the 12/8 rhythm and 220bpm your bandmate gave you to work on.
lol 12/8 at 220 would be nuts. that's a wrist workout.
im into that relaxation stuff, it puts me to sleep and calms my nerves. its generally called "ambient". if you listen closely most of the "random" notes are in time.
Yes, it could be described as ambient, and it is also atonal. I'm a fan of a lot of that type of music, I love to hear thigns I haven't heard much before. A lot of the times this "random music" isn't quite as random as it seems, notes often have purpose. While other times... It actually is just random.
On the other end of the spectrum, try some Dillenger Escape Plan. Also not really any particular rhythm or melody. :twisted:
no rhythhm or melody at all....? Thats not music....thats SILENCE!
I'm thinking those are sound effects. You can buy sound effect CD's online.
They supposed to calm your nerves. And they do succeed in my experience.
I remember I got a cassette tape way way back which was actually hypnotism putting you to deepp deepp deeeeeep sleeeeeeep. I think it was intended for people with heavy insomnia problem. It goes like this... "relax your muscle in your feet....nowww... your muscles in your feet are relaxxxeeedd.... relax your muscles in your leegggsss.... etc... etc."
If it has "random" notes in it. I suggest you look closer at the music, maybe you dont have the skill to do it. I very much doubt it is random, just because something doesnt contain standard rock or jazz progressions it does not mean it is random.
There were some Frank Zappa Albums, about which I partly hat the feeling, that it's randomly put together. But maybe I just don't understand his harmonies and rhythms...
If you want to listen to some really asincronous (sp?) stuff, I suggest you go to WFMU.ORG
This site is truly freeform and they promote at least one or two DJs who only play "noise". That stuff is crazy, fun, and sometimes really annoying.
I have a friend who was in a noise band in college. I never could get myself to go out to see their shows. Live it would have been a little too avant-garde for me.
