The answer to that question is, yes and no. First of all, electronic music often has a negative connotation. Some people argue that it is not like the artist play an actual instrument but just press buttons. I agree with that statement, sadly enough in many cases “musicians” in the electronic genre craft their songs together by using samples which they loop and combine. As an example they do not have to worry about chord progressions and rather get a pre-done one and create their song with preexisting material. To me this is a lazy approach, in my opinion this does not require a lot of talent, maybe some sense of rhythm. However, electronic music goes way further than building songs out of sample packs. To me the probably most fascinating part is, that in electronic music you can craft any instrument you want, there is no limitation what so ever. With electronic synthesizers sounds can be designed. Whether those are hardware or software based, there are no limitation nor rules, and sounds can even transform into others, shift in many directions, as an example start soft and become an aggressive growl.
I started making music because I liked so many different genres, sometimes just elements of those. I personally do not like having boundaries in music, I like to design my sounds and combine what sounds good to me, rather than following rules just in order to fit a genre. I am working on a couple of new things and will make another post soon.
