Says the super talented girl.
With a common love for BoC here, it shows their ability to inspire. And you could very well be right about the "breeding ground for the future of music." I think of what Brian Eno said about Velvet Underground “The first Velvet Underground album only sold 10,000 copies, but everyone who bought it formed a band” and think about BoC.
This isn't quite the same as that, but BoC especially, gave me such a strong personal desire to make music and I know I'm not alone with that. It seems to be for different reasons than usual, though. It's not "I wanna play guitar like that" or "write lyrics like that". It's the level of incredible art, like painting stunning images with sound waves that makes me say "I wanna make really good art with sound no matter the instruments used". The inspiration is for simply for creativity, and less specific, to me. I know a lot of my stuff currently goes in the direction of BoC's IDM, but I plan on making stuff that sounds like Alan Parsons Project - Wouldn't Wanna Be Like You, mixed with a lot of Devo's stuff, mixed with more psychedelia.
So I agree, this place is a great music source. So, so often I'm greeted with the same tingly feeling when listening to these talented folk here.
