Re: Introduce yourself! Hi I'm Andy and I think this website is really cool. I have a project called Home&Office that I would love for you all to check out!

What cancelled sitcom best  describes your life?
Spin City, News Radio, The Mary Tyler Moore Show - all the top tier office sitcoms

What does Vaporwave mean to you?
To me it's a tangible manifestation of nostalgia, whether intentional or not. Though it's rooted in media and styles of the past, it's transformed into something brand new and unique to this time. It's weird, wonderful, stupid and intelligent all at once.

What subgenres are you most into?
Anything ambient (a la Palm Mall) and anything super synthetic yet organic-sounding like PrismCorp. As long as it's got some good vibes and comes from the heart, it really hits me.

How did you find out about this place?

Found it on an Agora Road YouTube video of an album I made. (One year later)

What do you do for fun?
Make music, drink coffee, listen to video game music, take walks, play video games, build Gundam models, record other people's music

Re: What is your favorite anime movie? The one I've probably rewatched the most amount of times is Ghost In The Shell. Others I could watch endlessly forever:
- Any City Hunter movie
- Patlabor
- Legend of the Galactic Heroes: My Conquest Is The Sea Of Stars
- Area 88

In Office by Home&Office (me) ... officesoft? You tell me! I recently put out a new album for my project Home&Office, and here's the first track from it if you feel like checking it out! I don't know exactly which vaporwave subgenre to stick this into, but it's all office-themed and tends to bounce between some funky/jazz-fusion sounding stuff and more atmospheric sounding stuff. If you like it, I have more stuff on my Bandcamp (link under my avatar). Anyways, let me know what you think!

Re: In Office by Home&Office (me) ... officesoft? You tell me! Glad you like it, thanks! You bring up some good points too. The mutation aspect of vaporwave is definitely valuable and there are many artists that do it well, but I found that straying from the standard "formats" allowed me to express a much wider range of feelings and tell a more personal story.

Re: Sunset Ride - Sunset Ride album out now! I really enjoyed this! If I had to give one criticism I'd say the drums could have been a little punchier or more present overall. There were parts with some really cool polyrhythmic type grooves where I felt the drums could have been a driving force but they just softly chugged away underneath the other instruments.

Overall I really dig it though!

Re: What was the first Vaporwave you ever listened to? I think around 2013 or so someone sent me a random Bandcamp link that was some kind of king of the hill related vaporwave. I was confused and I don't remember what it sounded like.

Shortly after that I somehow stumbled into the Dream Catalogue Bandcamp and downloaded some big compilation. Again, don't remember anything about that.

Then one day about a year later I was letting YouTube go wild on some 70/80s Japanese tv theme songs (Sukeban Deka in particular) and suddenly the next thing it plays is a 猫 シ Corp track and I was hooked immediately. It wasn't until then that I really recognized that vaporwave was a thing that was happening.

Edit: it was this ->

Re: How do you play vapor live? I wanna revive this thread! I've been mulling over ideas for a for live setup for a while now. Ranging from a performance-art based set with mostly backing tracks and maybe some improvised noise ... to a straight up full band with synth, drums, horns, etc. It will probably end up being somewhere in between those two extremes.

If you are reading this and you play live, what is your setup like? I wanna know!
