I have Claire over at Incognitus Scriptor to thank for introducing me to vaporwave music. As the title of this post suggests, I’m not sure that I totally understand what it’s about, which might not be a bad thing: I tend to get really into things and want to know everything about them, and particularly with music, the exploration sometimes keeps me from enjoying it.
Frequently, I’ll need some kind of background noise when I’m reading ot writing. I have a couple of sites that are pure "noise" (e.g. white noise, sounds of rain and thunder, coffee shop backgrounds) that I use frequently, but lately I’ve been seeking out vaporwave. I’ve found that a lot of the artists have channels on Soundcloud and/or Spotify, too, and I’m sure on platforms like Bandcamp.
When I started looking for vaporwave on YouTube, I found a user with the handle Kurdtbada who posts both individual tracks as well as mixes on his channel. K will usually tell what kind of music is in a given mix; in the case of "Pausa comercial", which follows, the music is identified as "vaporwave – electronic mix." There are twelve tracks in this mix, so you might want to go over to YouTube (the link is above) and see what they are. K has also linked to a number of other YouTube channels where you can find more music. Or you can just listen below…
And that’s Monday’s Music Moves Me for November 16, 2020.
