Well, sure. I wasn't saying that they weren't related. I was just stating why I didn't like the term "producer" since it already is a word for something else in the music industry. Of course people are going to be confused when you call yourself a producer, the same way they would be confused if you called yourself a director.

Electronic musicians are always complaining that electronic music isn't as accepted as traditional music. Designating some silly (and dare I say pretentious?) title for yourself that already has another use isn't going to help matters much.

Why not call yourself a musician like every other damn musician does? Or like I said earlier "I make music" or if you want to get even more specific "electronic musician" or "I make electronic music." Try it on for size. Practice calling yourself that. It's not so difficult.

(and before anybody claims I'm being grumpy, I'm eating a delicious chocolate chip cookie right now and couldn't be happier. )

Re: What should I call myself?

Shuddup Vlantis, first of all, I produce (meaning put out) electronic music. Second of all, an acronym can have two meanings, for example: KGB can mean Komitet Gosudarstvennoy Bezopasnosti (Committee for State Security, former USSR) or Killer Green Bud (slang for marijuana).

So you're an electronic musician?

And if "produce" means "put out" then I dated a few girls who were great producers.

Fuck you .-. You knew what I meant, now you are just being obnoxious. You can go around saying you are an EMP and somebody asks "What's that?" and you can say "electronic music producer." and they will understand; unlike when you say you are a DJ people are like "So you're a disc jockey?" and you are like *facepalm*

EDIT: and another thing, the reasone I asked this question in the first place is because farrr to many people in my town call themselves DJs falsely and people get the wrong impression. I know for a fact I'm not to the point of being a DJ yet and none of my freinds are either. That being said, an EMP is one who mixes and creates their own music. Seriously, look it up on google for fucks sake. The software we use is even coined "music production software".

Re: What should I call myself?

I think if we go around calling ourselves emps we'll look even more pretentious. Though there is something different about an EMP, we compose entire tracks; Though I guess its usually only with one instrument. Its just different than saying "I play bass", Its like "I compose music".

Ps. lols at the producer joke

Wahaha! Relax, dude. You think I'm being serious with that electromagnetic pulse shit? Maybe I needed more smileys? I thought I had enough in my last message. I guess you resort to "fuck you's" whenever somebody's bustin' your balls?

But feel free to call yourself an EMP and have to explain it to people every time, I'll stick with telling people "I make music" and leave it at that.




No wait, but seriously, why do you need to call yourself anything other than "electronic musician?"

Yes.

Or you can say "I make music" which will save you the trouble of having to explain that you don't really compose classical style songs or film scores, which is probably what people are going to think.



I swear, only electronic musicians will make something as simple as stating what their hobby is and turn it into something REALLY complicated.

(^the above statement is tongue-in-cheek, since a smiley sticking his tongue out may not be sufficient for everybody)

Re: What should I call myself?

Look up all the definitions of 'producer', none of them mean 'someone who makes EDM or experimental electronic music.. It's generally a word for someone who oversees a production, often because they contributed the funds to make it happen.

A 'producer' in circles like this one is either confused or believes what they do as something other than making music..

Call yourself a musician, man!

I'm going to quote myself because it's really the most practical thing to do. I agree with Vlantis. By insisting that you go by something other than "musician", you're not improving the general public's view of electronic music. If anything, you're making it worse.

Re: What should I call myself?

I think anyone who asks this question should call themselves "Bum Cheek" until they figure out in their own heads through experience and what-not what they should call themselves. I have to say at this point i am very tempted to change the OPs username to "Bum Cheek" until they do indeed figure it out.....
