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.
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.
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?
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.
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 is increasingly being used unfairly as a label for relaxing music of all kinds, but meditation is more than relaxation.
After a long search for a suitable genre or term for my recent musical productions, I have found in “eclectic” the appropriate adjective.
Of course, we condemn the war in Ukraine, but what choice do we have after that?
Scientific cosmology and spirituality are not opposites. The idea of a creation – of God – cannot come from nothing.
To bring my little world of diversity closer to the listeners, I created the “Holistic Entprima weeks”.
Music consists of organized sound, rhythm and optionally language. This generous framework is sometimes dangerously reduced by our tendency to simplify.
Engaging for a better world is a long-distance run. You probably won’t be able to reap the rewards.
The brave new world of the internet and social media channels has also brought us a new dimension of classification mania.
Calculations show that we are heading towards a global peak in human population.
Freedom is the antithesis of despotism, but in democracies it needs vigorous limits.
There is a longing among many people for harmony between cultures. But their voice remains unheard outside the closed bubble of their mother tongue.
Majority expectations are also called mainstream. Constant feeding of the mainstream leads to stagnation, and stagnation means death.
We like to create bubbles of hope so as not to despair. Yes, you fight for the good and ally yourself with like-minded people.
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.
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.
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.
You don’t fit one hundred percent with the current trend, so you don’t get an existing stage
It is fundamentally undemocratic when value systems are artificially kept alive. The decisive course for humanistic and fair value systems is set in education.
Research shows that the hits are getting simpler and simpler. Is this a picture of the entire music market?
Producing Electronic Pop Music was a happy return of the inner child. What a miraculous coincidence at an advanced age.
An ironic refraction of the basic emotional attitude, which is undoubtedly a condition for truthful music, can be helpful.
The world has changed much more through science and technology than the keepers of the past preach to us.
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
Machines, poverty and mental health are the three main issues that concern me – and they are all partly related.
The first entry into the charts is a milestone for every music producer. Entprima has just made it.
While relax moods have a huge representation in music genres of the streaming services, sociopolitical approaches are nearly invisible.

Entprima Story Insights | Sometimes stories come to a sudden end. This is what happened to the story of the Spaceship Entprima.
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
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.

Entprima Story Insights | Introducing Captain Entprima, who is responsible for the music on board. It was not his native task, but his passion decided.
When the passengers found the musician who probably could create the onboard music for the upcoming months, they wanted to hear some samples.
Entprima Story Insights | The artists were missing on board of the spaceship because no one on the selection committee thought they were necessary.
Entprima Story Insights | This is the starting point of our first story, where 10 music releases were involved.
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.
