Genre Delem-nia

 

After several years of music on a server, it is necessary to create genres and create playlists after some variations, I eventually settled on the following:

 

Genre Description
1 Ambient Textured/low dynamics
2 BerlinSchool Electronic Orchestral
3 Chamber Small # Instruments, Mainly Acoustic
4 Space Tranquil, Hypnotic
5 Chill Upbeat, light electronic
6 Synthwave Heavy electronic with reverb
7 Trip-Hop Dynamic electronic
8 Psybient Psychedelic + Electronic
9 Downbeat Relaxed Chill
10 Prog Rock Polyrhythmic Rock
11 Rock Blues based
12 Space Rock Long Form Prog Rock Jams
13 Disco Bass heavy dance
14 Post Rock Textured Guitars
15 Jazz Soloing /Lead Instruments
16 Vocal Focus on vocals
17 Orchestral Sympnonies, Concertos
18 Metal Heavily Distorted Guitars
19 Symphonic Metal Metal + Choir, Soprana

 

Then when I seriously started storing mp3’s on my smartphone, it became apparent that 19 types were too many. This was reduced to just six……..

 

1 Ambient Soft & Relaxing with low dynamics
2 Electronic Keyboard/Computer created (not in an other category)
3 Rock Bass/Drums/Guitar based
4 Vocal Focus on vocals
5 Orchestral Symphonies, Concertos
6 Metal Heavily Distorted Guitars
