Album of the Week / Song of the Day

Post by 8-ball » 1 Apr 2017, 08:10

Mans from #music on Elma Discord have started Album of the Week and Song of the Day contests.

Album/song nominations, ratings and commenting happen on Google Sheets, find the link in topic of #music, add an album to the current week and a song to the current day, add a column with your name and start rating!

Gotta say it's been really fun so far and everyone has been exposed to a lot of interesting music that they otherwise wouldn't have heard.

It doesn't seem terribly exciting to show people music you love only to repeatedly hear from them that it's boring or okay at best. At some point it just gets unpleasant, if not disheartening. And the whole idea of rating music feels fundamentally wrong. Assigning numbers to everything sounds like something a robot would do because its incapable of experiencing complex emotions and has to simplify all things until they can be processed by a soulless algorithm.

You and your rant about ratings again...

Have you ever read the comments that people put for almost every single song and album? "Assigning numbers to everything sounds like something a robot would do because its incapable of experiencing complex emotions and has to simplify all things" is totally inapplicable.

Can learn a lot from some negative feedback about the human perceptions of music, and the feeling when somebody loves what you posted is priceless imo.

I don't get it. You use 4 smileys (:( :| :) :D) instead of the 1-10 scale with increments of 0.5. That's a lot more simplified and doesn't carry any additional info, so even more like a robot as you say? Also we constantly hev discussions on the music and ratings, so it doesn't simpli stop at the rating.
then again i don't know anything
maybe easier not to think abouut alöl things thought than not things thought ... or something..=?
