's patient explanation and clarification of this genre to me, I now have a more full and accurate comprehension of this recent musical trend that I fear I may never quite manage to get on board with.
So, for any other "old guys" (or people with taste) out there who, like me, have been scratching your heads about this whole "dubstep" thing, I can now help shine a light. :D
"Dubstep" is a genre of "music" typically defined by the "bass drop" which is composed using not sounds from musical instruments (real or synthesized), but instead created using the sounds and noises one would normally associate with your electronic devices trying to tell you that something is very, very, very wrong with them. :C
I now have a more vivid image of the dubstep composer's workplace. I imagine a medieval torture chamber, except designed to elicit the equivalent of screams and death noises from your computer, alarm clock, television, or other poor, tragically tormented electronic devices.
*psst, this is mostly in jest, to each their own, no accounting for taste, etc, etc, I'm just poking fun at an interest I don't get, which anyone reading this on a furry cub art site should know that you shouldn't base your enjoyment of something on whether other people understand it or not. ;P
