There was an interview with purity ring and they were explaining how they could play the music live when the music is created on a computer. They focused on the presentation and the aesthetic of the performance. Thats why people go to raves or edm concerts. Because they’re set with effects and lights. People go see edm artists for the performance. Its not like someone says “i really like this song because it reminds me of grandma” so dont try to make it emotional and stick to the presentation.

I like EDM but to me it will never be at par to an album that is made with a real instrument. I do recognize that composition is important but with edm you can only stay within one realm or confined to a genre. If you tried to play deadmau5 or skrillex on an instrument, you would only be able to recreate certain parts. The composition that deadmau5 is talking about it thrown away. Im not defending arcade fire too. Why did they only write an orchestral part for a section of porno instead of the whole thing? Because they can’t recreate the synth sound accurately with a classical instrument. And deadmau5 is trashing arcade fire by saying they dont compose or even play guitar. Remember that one time they wrote an album about growing up in the suburbs and the time between being a teen and an adult. An album that actually made you want to cry or miss your friends. I have never experienced that with dance music.
