Please excuse any horrible mistakes in this thread, I'm typing this on my iPod.
Yesterday, a friend in my math class had an interesting argument. He was saying that Deadmau5 and Skrillex shouldn't have been at the Grammies because their music wasn't, well, music. His main argument was that Skrillex turns a virtual knob on a mixer to change pre-existing sounds into bits of his songs, whereas a traditional musician would physically move his fingers up or down a fret to create a sound. He also said that electronic music took a lot less effort and wasn't considered the artist's work because the computer created the song.
I, on the other hand, completely disagree with my friend. I believe that Electronic music doesn't take less effort, it's just made differently and sounds differently.
So, mass debators, what do you think?
