I vaguely remember the midi connector on the back of a computer, and that you could connect a game controller to it. I vaguely remember that you could also connect other stuff to it, like a keyboard, to make music.

But it wasn't until my brother told me about this: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Black_MIDI, that I became aware that one could actually compose music this way. Here's a short youtube video describing what it is: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FqjSYtKWyX8.

It turns out Black Midi is just a single genre midi style music. Here's two examples of what it looks and sounds like: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jfta3YqVHec, and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ay8vzCHkgEk.

I'm sure I'm not the first to post on this kind of music, but I was so wowed by this, that I had to share.

Is this stuff bad-assed, or what?!

Explanation requires music theory understanding, some wave theory for the mechanical science of what's happening.
What you hearing is music, 7th chords, triad chords with clone root note at a higher or lower octave for added kick, as a remix of songs, chords and notes to make a super additive interference music, rhythmically moving to the beat.

TL;DR didn't understand, the flood of notes at one time harmonize from what sounds good during music production. Post music production, it's easier to play just the sound file then the MIDI or DAW studios. It adds that emphasize when that black MIDI music technique plays. The visualization of every single note is what killing the system resources. If the harmony was off, it would just be clashing noise. Ofc, the super play of notes at any given time, every single also has a huge memory tally.

Nice.
Remember, rhythm of the beat influences the emotion of the song or music.

It's not that hard, music theory is easy to understand.

Here,



Every music note, physically is a mechanical wave, vibrating at a particular given frequency, measure in Hertz, Hz.



When you play two notes that are next and close to each other, they form that clashing destructive wave interference.

It depends, this sounds bad BUT if you were making haunting scary music or thriller suspense music like in action thriller movies or tense movie sequences, this is something you might use.

But, generally, notes will be at least a whole tone, or 2 or more semi-tones apart from each other. Really 1 whole step and a half.



From A note to Bb, B-flat, is what's called a half-step or 1 semi-tone. From A to B is a Whole Step or 2 semi-tones.



Chords is when you play more than 1 note at the same time. Example, you have C chord which is notes C, E and G. C and E are 1 whole step and half away. If you played just C and G, you get what's called a power chord. They sound good because they harmonize and are spaced apart.
When you play another C note on another octave, either higher or lower, you get more of that kick or volume feel or sound you hear.

I won't go into timing or rhythm, that should not be too complicated. That's all there is to it, really. It's not too difficult. I don't know, if explaining music, takes the magic away but this a simplified version of beginner's music theory with some phys in it. There's really no right or wrong way to play music.

hey, i remember back when if you wanted a song from the internet, it was a MIDI file. also, different sound cards had different MIDI sounds, so the music would change from one computer to another. some were really good. others not so much. MIDI is just data on frequency, duration, ramps. i used to write music on MIDI. check out wing commander III, all that music is MIDI.
