I have been trying to get back into music again. I think I am growing out of dance music now because I start making a tune and then get sick/bored of it pretty quick. Electronic music for me is fun in parts but mainly only the parts where I manipulate things through midi, so the bits where I am playing an instrument of sorts. The arrangement can be sort of rewarding sometimes and figuring out new tricks but mostly I find it too cerebral and thus takes me out of the moment. This sounds ironic coming from me as I am one of the most cerebral fellows around but I want to use music as a way to get me into the moment and so it bugs me when I am just pointing and clicking around the place. I bought a violin a while back but haven't taken the time to play it yet because it felt pretty inaccessible without some instruction. I potentially see that as more rewarding now though if I take the time to learn it. I imagine both can be very rewarding if you really take the time to learn either but I have less appreciation of dance music now as i relate less to the scene and find I have more appreciation of classical. I still dislike most music in general but the violin was the instrument which really hit home with me so wanted to endeavour to learn it. If people have done both instrument and writing computer based music I'd be interested to hear their experiences with each.
