Idly wondering... are there any videogame (switch, specifically, but in general) youtuber that is not super annoying, shouty?



Sometimes the title of a video sounds interesting but I feel *dread* for all the time between click and video load. Often justified. Sigh.

@renatoram May I recommend Synthesizer YouTube for a bunch of really mellow voices recorded with impeccable equipment, all angled for the purpose of sharing something they think is cool?

@JoshuaACNewman I, unfortunately, find most synth music very very boring... I appreciate the art/craftsmanship, but I do it for guitar virtuosos too, and never listen to them either ^____^

Also, no, you'tre not infecting me with ANOTHER hobby ok? :-P

@JoshuaACNewman I was a tenor sax player a life ago: low blow man, low blow!

@renatoram The dude on the right built all those synthesizers. The machines, themselves, are part of the art.

@JoshuaACNewman oh I get it. But still, 27 minutes of this is like 27 minutes of intricate guitar solos by Malmsteen or Steve Vai: wankery (and I mean it in the least offensive way possible).

Aside: can confirm, synth music for me does the opposite effect of Cello. I get slightly sick just by listening to it.

@JoshuaACNewman ugh, no, very much not (to me). The dissonant, high pitched sounds, plus the (I think) square wave based sounds, goes very much against my grain.

Let's meet in the middle with Zoe Keating :-D
(cello + looping)

@JoshuaACNewman no worries: I assumed you already knew her. She's great, and her live performances are amazing. Does with a cello + looping sampler what I've seen do to some singers (like Imogen Heap), building a whole soundscape and song live, starting from scratch.

@renatoram I recognize the name, but I'm awful with names in general. I certainly know the genre, so have probably heard her!
