I write code and I write music. I'm currently studying for a master's in computer science, researching how music can be used to create user interfaces, and writing the music for Takamo Universe, a 4X space MMO.

comment How to determine electronic genre?
If you ask in chat, someone will probably help you classify a couple of your specific songs.

comment How do I become a better electronic music producer?
I disagree with many of the points in this answer. DnB is, in fact, in 4/4 - it just tends to be syncopated. And a lot of electronic music does have powerful chord changes - ambient, electro and progressive house, dnb besides jungle, world fusion, trance, and even some dubstep usually have chord changes in my experience.

comment How many types of modulation are there?
Thanks for the answer! I think it would be more helpful if you explained what each type of modulation is or have an example for each of them.

@MeaningfulUsername I agree that this particular question is off-topic. But I think Sheraff's going to ask some really good questions based on the interest he's shown in this question, so we should welcome him to our site =)

comment Score transcription community
@Sheraff That would probably be off-topic. We don't answer questions asking for analysis of specific pieces, unfortunately. What you could do, however, is ask a question about how to recognize which beats instruments start on in general, then use the advice you learn to figure out your specific problem. You could probably even use your specific piece as an example, as long as your question is general enough.

If you ever have a specific question about scoring, Music.SE can help you out. It looks like you have a lot of rep on Worldbuilding, so you should already have a sense for what types of questions would be on-topic here =)

comment What is the “unresolvable chord”?
I have to say, I disagree with your sister. One of my favorite songs just plays a Isus4 chord for almost the entire song and doesn't resolve it when it ends!

comment How to create fast runs (i.e. speedy notes)?
Doing the math, that's 11-12 notes per second. Thanks for the clarification!

comment How to create fast runs (i.e. speedy notes)?
How fast are the notes we're talking about? 16th notes at high tempos? 64th notes and faster? Hundreds of notes per second? Thousands of notes per second? I think most of us haven't read or heard of the research you're taking about, so we'll be able to help you more if you described it a little.

comment How can I get my guitar to “the next level” from intermediate to ok
It looks to me like your question is that you want to improve from an amateur to near-professional level but don't have time to practice, and you want to know if there's anything you can do about it without dedicating more time to practicing. Is that correct?

comment Do musicians that began playing from an early age have an incontestable advantage?
-1: Nick is asking for empirical evidence for his question. This answer only gives platitudes meant to let adult players know they can start playing music, but don't objectively show that it's possible for then to become top-notch musicians.

If you can't get a good answer here on Music.SE, you can ask this question at Skeptics.SE. They handle questions of this format extremely well.

comment Is “harpvox” an existing musical instrument?
My guess is that the sound designers took the words harp and vox (which means voice) and stuck them together to describe a synthesized, original sound.

comment What's the difference between “feat”, “artist1 X artist 2”, “artist1 Vs. artist2” and “artist1 & artist 2”?
I've also seen "vs." indicating that two artists are just collaborating.
