Electronic Music vs. Live Instrumentation

Electronic Music vs. Live Instrumentation

Ever since man first plugged in a synthesizer, there’s been a battle between live instrumentation and electronic music.
Electronic music is music that employs electronic musical instruments and electronic music technology in its production. In general a distinction can be made between sound produced using electromechanical means and that produced using electronic technology. Electronic music today includes many varieties and ranges from experimental art music to popular forms such as electronic dance music. Live instrumentation on the other hand, is the use of acoustic and electronic musical instruments in live music and recording rather than DJing, sampling, and other recording techniques.
Some would rather go to a concert to see live performances because they think that electronic artists just press the ""play"" button and wave their hand a couple of times.More so, they believe that rock, metal, blues, country, jazz, classical, reggae and soul and more are real talent, because the musicians actually write their own music and use real instruments.
For some, watching rock shows is boring. They don’t feel comfortable standing around and staring at the band. They’re not the type of crowd who just stay in one place and make no kinetic movement.
One electronic music enthusiast said,“I feel what they’re saying about the ""Liveness"" of a rock band though and I'm waiting for that to start happening with electronic music. Mostly because I still love electronic sounds over acoustic. I love hearing sounds that make me bounce around the room and go out of my mind. I think very soon, there will be people making electronic sounds and it being just as live as a rock show.”
With all the technology today, we can pretty much manipulate anything to sound good, live or not. Although, I’d rather go into a nice bar somewhere and sit down and listen to a group of talented musicians jam, I must admit that there’s talent in electronic music too.
The truth is, it’s not fair to compare electronic music to live instrumentation because the approach and discipline is not the same. Besides, live instrumentation and electronic music is actually a good combination. To understand this paragraph more, listen to Prodigy, Rage Against the Machine, Linkin Park, and the likes.
