Listening instructions for my music

Music is also fundamentally an art form. All art forms have offshoots in the form of “commercial art”. Paintings are produced as wall decorations for homes and music is also sold as acoustic background music for everyday life. Some artists react to this practice by linking an artistic claim with this social attitude. Andy Warhol’s “Pop Art” is an example of this. Art critics and curators, who are supposed to be an aid to interpretation for art lovers, initially find it difficult to deal with such works because they are strongly linked to art history. This is why innovations in art are often promoted by art fans. That’s why I’m addressing you directly, dear art lover.

Artificial intelligence (AI) and emotions

The use of artificial intelligence in music production has become a hot topic. On the surface, it’s about copyright law, but hidden within that is the accusation that it’s morally reprehensible for artists to make use of AI in production. Reason enough for a concerned person to take a stand on this. My name is Horst Grabosch and I am a book author and music producer at the Entprima Publishing label.

Censored by Apple

When asked by the distributor, the album violated an Apple rule: “it is considered very generic for Apple Music, so it can have many copyright overlaps”. Since the album is an acoustic meditation and soul journey and comes under the genre “New Age”, I did some research and found dozens of albums with recordings of singing bowls. What is more generic than the recording of a sound body without additional structured content? The 13 tracks of my album are clearly highly artfully arranged and very different pieces of music. What is the problem?

A Deeper Meaning of Lo-Fi

First a brief introduction for those who have never heard the term Lo-Fi. It defines the intention of a piece of music in terms of sound quality and is a provocative contrast to Hi-Fi, which aims for the highest possible quality. So much for the tip of the iceberg.
Philosophically, Lo-Fi is a departure from the “higher and further” of our world. At a time when even Hi-Fi is no longer enough for many, and Dolby Atmos (multi-channel instead of stereo) is establishing itself as contemporary, the Lo-Fi trend takes on an almost revolutionary air. I would like to highlight 2 aspects of Lo-Fi that underpin this claim.

Mother Tongue and Discrimination

Quote: No German-language title in the Top 100 of the Official German Airplay Charts 2022.
BVMI Chairman Dr. Florian Drücke criticizes the fact that not a single German-language title can be found in the Top 100 of the Official German Airplay Charts 2022, thus setting a new negative record for a trend that the industry has been pointing out for years. At the same time, the study shows that the variety of genres listened to, including German-language music, continues to be great. In the music offer of the radio stations this is not reflected however. The fact that songs in German don’t play a particularly big role on the radio is not a new phenomenon, and the industry has addressed and criticized it many times over the years.

Meditation and Music

Meditation is increasingly being used unfairly as a label for relaxing music of all kinds, but meditation is more than relaxation.

Eclectic Electronic Music

After a long search for a suitable genre or term for my recent musical productions, I have found in “eclectic” the appropriate adjective.

God of Fullness

Scientific cosmology and spirituality are not opposites. The idea of a creation – of God – cannot come from nothing.

Trivial music can be dangerous

Music consists of organized sound, rhythm and optionally language. This generous framework is sometimes dangerously reduced by our tendency to simplify.

Engagement and Vanity

Engaging for a better world is a long-distance run. You probably won’t be able to reap the rewards.

Algorithms and Pigeonholes

The brave new world of the internet and social media channels has also brought us a new dimension of classification mania.

Leave your language bubble

There is a longing among many people for harmony between cultures. But their voice remains unheard outside the closed bubble of their mother tongue.

Young vs. Old

Conflicts between young and old are also called generational conflicts. But why do they exist? Let’s take a look at it. First, let’s remember the different phases of life.

SOPHIE

I am infinitely sorry that you, SOPHIE, did not have enough time of life. But your fans will never forget you, and as of today you have a new fan – R.I.P.

Electronic Music Is Not a Style!

Unfortunately, “electronic music” has become established in pop music as a kind of style description. This is not only fundamentally wrong, but also distorts the view of the whole for young listeners.

Beethoven vs. Drake

It is fundamentally undemocratic when value systems are artificially kept alive. The decisive course for humanistic and fair value systems is set in education.

Music and Emotions

An ironic refraction of the basic emotional attitude, which is undoubtedly a condition for truthful music, can be helpful.

My Global Approach

The world has changed much more through science and technology than the keepers of the past preach to us.

Young Artists and Record Labels

The artist’s drive is passion, and passion often shifts the profit expectation far behind, depending on the survival model. Record companies do not have that much patience

Dance Studies

This is the beginning of a story about a storyteller. When former professional trumpeter Horst Grabosch returned to the music business in 2019 after more than 20 years, he did not yet know that this would not be the late career of a musician, but that he would henceforth tell stories in word and sound. Who enters electronic music production at this time as an old-timer, starts with EDM – what else? But already the first attempts show treacherous runaways into realms outside the mainstream. The way was prepared. | EEMM Autumn 2022

Spaceship Diner

It’s June 2019 and music professional Horst Grabosch has returned to the music business after a break of more than 20 years. After his first training songs as a producer of electronic music with “Dance Studies” he combines for the first time a fantastic story with electronic pop songs. In his fantasy, an intelligent coffee machine produces music in the canteen of a spaceship.

The New Approach

Let me today speak about a new approach of Entprima. When musicians try to get into the music business, they have a huge problem. If they are totally newcomers, no label will be interested in them.
