№❶ in electronic music world

Electronica / Downtempo

Electronic music originated in the distant seventies, when the DJs, who played Disco and Funk, used these styles for creation of different “fancy features” to record electronic tracks. Eventually, Electronica became a separate genre of music that won the hearts of the listeners.

It is commonly believed that the founders of this genre are the followers of Post-disco, which was developing rapidly in Chicago, New York and Detroit. House and Techno developed in these cities and later on these genres became the engine of this music style. At first, majority of electronic tracks were created for the dance floor, but at the beginning of the ninetieth producers started to record the tracks for the listeners. This is how such genres appeared: Ambient-House, Experimental-Techno, Techno-House and Electro-Techno. Free structure and record of dance compositions were always typical for the style, which electronic music gave rise to.

To create a minimal track of electronic music you just need a laptop and a pair of speakers, because this is not a concert with many performers and instruments required for a huge concert hall. Electronic music is oriented towards popular styles and traditions of club culture, even though in revised version. But at the same time there is one more direction that we should mention — Academic electronic music. Of course, it is less known, but it is “solid pivot” of electronic music. This notion surprises many people. The fact that electronic music originated not in pop-music is well-known, but it is difficult for understanding by the great masses of listeners. For example, the style IDM as well as the style “noise” electronic music, despite their names, is meant for listening and not for dancing. You don’t need any special education to create the composition for these styles; it’s more useful to have technical skills in this sphere.

Invention of CD and digital methods of sound synthesis and sound transmission contributed greatly to the development of electronic music. This gave rise to concern among live music lovers who are dissatisfied with the lack of contact between the musician and the instrument. However, despite this fact electronic music became popular and separate direction that generated many fascinating and beautiful genres.
