Default definition for "electronic music"

let's talk about a possible definition for "electronic" music, OK?????
Quote:
I'd say: "recordings, that get a special touch (character??) by involving electronic devices wether to create sounds or alter them in a significant way"
An E-guitar for instance already does this what You describe and therefore this fit to 99% of music like Rock, Jazz-Rock, Pop, Soul, Funk, Hip-Hop, Punk, Punkrock, Metal.... Funkrocksoulhipjazzdeathmetalpunk...did I forget one and Id describe it somewhat more specific as sounds that are completly created synthesized by computers (at least that is what I understand under the term "electronic music").
This kind of sound is quite rare nowadays I believe , of course except of that Techno-stuff which most of it is just (hey....what a great opportunity to try all that fancy icons!!)
One of the early classics of the electronic style as I understand it occurs to me - Jean Michel Jarre "Oxygene" (1976)
(I know it`s a really old hat but I still like it once in while - his later productions are all crap IMHO)

Quite a lot of new music is coming from Germany nowadays.
Can it be that I`ve missed something?

I don't think you that missed much.

You are right about Jarre's Oxygene. In 1976 it was a real classic. The later production wasn't as fresh, but still, you can find 2 or 3 albums that are quite enjoyable.

I much more prefer Tangerine Dream though and Klaus Schulze. And what about Kitaro, Tomita, Vangelis and Mike Oldfield?

I find Kitaro rather like elevator music, but he has had an influence on some other performers I like.

Earlier this year I was fortunate enough to attend a live E-Music event and some of the sounds/grooves/vibes made were awe inspiring.

This genre can be very moving at times.

Personally, I think of electronic music as anything made primarily by machines - synths, drum machines, 909's, 808's, samplers, etc.

I'm sure it varies around the nation/ throughout the world. My friends and I call just about anything you hear at a club these days, 'house'. A partial list of sub-categories within house:

House, hard house, deep house, Chicago house, Detroit house, Acid house (going back to England in the late 80's), San Francisco house, West Coast breaks, break beat, jungle, hardcore, happy hardcore, dub, drum n' bass, acid jazz, mushroom jazz, trip hop, techno, tech step, trance, hard trance, acid trance, garage, electro...

I'm sure I missed a bunch, and I'm sure there are plenty that I've never heard of.

My understanding is that, although heavily influenced by 70s disco, modern house music originated in Chicago in the mid-80s, made its way to London where it became acid house - a very trippy brand of house music. People would gather at someone's flat, play some acid house, and drop acid. I think the guy who wrote Trainspotting wrote an earlier book called Acid House. Anywho, in about 1990-1, the music came back to the US, particularly Chicago, in its evolved form. There was an article in Urb about this a few years ago. I think Rolling Stone also ran a similar article.

There's a ton of good music you can sample around the web - www.1015.com, for starters. I'm at work and don't have access to my bookmarks, but will post more later. Oh - www.k7.com - there's a new DJ Kicks album by Playgroup with a brilliant remix of Tainted Love - 5th track (about 10-15 min. into the stream).

DJs/groups I like: Miguel Migs (just about anything/one from Naked Music), Mark Farina, Derrick Carter, Diz, Garth, Jeno, Jazzanova, Dixon (who is part of Jazznova), Mark Grant, Luke Solomon, Towa Tei (former turntablist for Deee-lite) and Thievery Corporation. There's a remix of Bebel Gilberto that's terrific, and Doc Martin's Sounds You Can Feel will give your bass bins a work out.

Roni Size is the closest thing to that genre that I listen too, and that is some quality stuff.
