    Default Any artists here?

    No, not you doodling, vegetarian types. I mean musicians, singers, emcees, etc...

    Personally, my singing is abysmal, I have some small talent making beats and I've been an emcee for a short minute now. And yes, you more perceptive ones will realize this is a not so subtle plug. Now, I will wait to pounce on someone who asks for a sample. :)

    Well if you could call my attempt to play the guitar, being a musician. I guess I am then. Also used to play the trumpet.

    On a serious note, yes I do what i consider art. I take artistic photographs. I am also really interested in films, and I would like to make one one day, even if it sucks.

    haha, the one about "black jesus" was pretty funny. was that used in an actual battle?

    unfortunately i don't think you'll find many rap/hiphop fans on these boards (there's probably like 3 total). is this something you want to make a career of? if so, you probably need to get out of SC right?

    while i'm not a big fan of your style (just not to my taste), talent-wise i think you're probably pretty good for an amateur. i'd need to hear those songs after the producer hits them anyway. keep at it.

    yeah - done a bit of battling, more of a songwriter though

    I post on a couple boards dedicated to hiphop - I just figured since I started posting here I'd throw it out there... I dunno about career - been recording for six or seven months now - if I can make money of it well and good - if not, that's fine too... and yeah SC is pretty dead as far as opportunity

    thanks for the feedback - you do anything yourself or just a keen eared listener?

    I play the keyboards. Not that well, but well enough to have fun. Mostly Pink Floyd and Deep Purple songs.

    well, since 'artist' is a pretty broad term, here's what i've been doing lately. or, at least a sampling thereof. this is all photo-art, photo restoration, photo manipulation and so on.

    I compose my own music, Neo-Baroque style. My mates tell me it's pretty good.

    Of those three, I'm one of them. Influenced by Mos Def, Rakim and Nas is respect, my friend. But, you sure you not influenced by Del Tha Funkee Homosapien? I dunno, but samples of your work (particularly that collab with Bounce) remind me of Del.

    Personally, I dabble in freestyling occasionally with some friends -- in Dutch, mind you. If you can speak of influences, I would speak of Slick Rick, CL Smooth and Big Gipp (yes, omg, dirty south rapper from Goodie Mob ) -- but those are my favorite MCs to listen to skill-wise. Usually composed of the first wackass/crazy thoughts that come up in my mind, which I weld together in a rhyme scheme. These freestyles aren't too long, only about forty-fifty bars -- but better than that pop hoe 50 with his crapass rhymes but catchy hooks (not to mention what his success rests on: Dr. Dre's producing talent), if I may say so myself. I'm more of a freebooting Biz Markie

    My only other art is writing -- which I take a lot more seriously. And do a lot more often (even though some fans may disagree on that last bit ).

    heh - my "influenced by" list is also my "only people I listen to" list basically - negroes be poor and can't afford buying CD's nah mean? I could always download music, but my connection is most unfortunately only 56k... and I don't have the patience for that - so I said all that to finally get to the point that I never heard anything by Del :(

    yeah, I agree freestyling is pretty fun when you get in that mood - don't get me started on 50 and the other pop-rap stars... errrr

    What type of things do you write? I've always wrote a lot and that's what kinda led into this. I started writing lyrics and then my friends kept bugging me so I started performing said lyrics

    Marcellus I took piano lessons as a child, but sadly remember almost nothing. I can read the music, but I'm reduced to pecking the notes out :( Viola is a nice instrument, I like fast paced songs

    Silver Knight - Neo-Baroque? I could look it up but I figure since you're interested in it you'll probably enjoy telling anyway :)

    just a guess, but neo-baroque is probably just baroque music composed after the baroque era (in this case, contemporarily). i would attempt to describe baroque music as the emergence of monody, and the morphing of renaissance polyphony into counterpoint. a few major baroque composers are monteverdi (early), vivaldi and purcell (middle), and bach and handel (late).

    neo-baroque is probably similar to neo-classical in that it's not strictly limited to a regurgitation of it's mother-style; it probably borrows a little from musical styles developed after baroque music. as an example of what i'm referring to, compare some classical music (haydn, mozart, etc.) to neo-classical works like prokofiev's 1st symphony, stravinsky's piano concerto, or hindemith's kammermusik works.

    any of the major 'movements' in art-music probably have a "neo-" version by this point. however, i don't think i've ever heard any neo-baroque music.

    Silver, do you have any samples of your compositions you can share?

    I do a touch of lyrics/song writing, as well as some poetry. I do sing, can't say my voice is abysmal, just not par with professionals.

    You are correct in your explanation.

    Bachianas Brasilieras is very reminiscent of works by Robert de Visee and Sylvius Leopold Weiss, both of those accomplished 18th century lutists, so I think Bachianas Brasiliers could be considered both modernistic and neo-baroque

    Blah, Tupac. Gimme Biggie any day -- but then I'm more of an Eastcoast brother man, if you catch my drift. And while I like that Biggie's slow flow doesn't impair his skill, the recycling of old samples by his producer Puffy doesn't really earn him props. Although Big's pre-Ready To Die freestyles are surprisingly good. Not quite last episode of Yo! MTV Raps quality, but still good.

    SMZ, I do occasionally write rhymes when friends bug me with it, but mostly I don't write those but stories. Fan fiction or something out of my own mind, short or long, you name it -- whatever comes up in my mind. Think of the movie Finding Forrester, subtract the socially critical/conscious part (I write about common emotions, problems and feelings, yes, but not in a way comparable to such books as Catcher in the Rye -- I'm not good enough [yet?] to achieve such levels, obviously) and you're probably quite close. Well, no old famous writer to teach me (again, yet? ), but still close!

    I'm not a good guitar player, but I can manage a little bit on the piano, and the tin whistle is coming, slowly but surely. Mostly, I stick to vocals, which, if I may be so immodest, is one of my better abilities.

    For anyone looking for neo-Baroque repertoire, I fully recommend the Concerto Grossi of the Russian composer Alfred Schnittke (1934-1998).
