For Those That Just Don’t Understand Electronic Music…You’re Not Alone.

I’m sure there are many people out there who don’t understand electronic music and all of the fuss that is made over it. Why is it such a big deal? How do you even get into it? What’s to like about it? Isn’t it just a bunch of noise?

So, honestly, I used to hate electronic music. My freshman year of college, I still didn’t get it. It wasn’t until my sophomore year and my second year of living in San Francisco that I was introduced to it in a more positive way than before. I started going to shows, downloading music, having favorite artists, researching DJs, and buying tickets in advance for shows that were coming to town. I was officially obsessed. But I still remember the time when it just sounded like noise and made my head hurt more than made me want to get up and dance around the move.

Meet Graham.

He is a fellow San Francisco State University student who has lived for San Francisco for about three years and knows that there is a big electronic music scene here. As hard as he tries, however, he just doesn’t get it. I don’t want to say that Graham is completely hopeless in understanding electronica but he is definitely having a hard time with it — a much harder time that I had when I was trying to tap into the scene.

Take a look at Graham’s story. For those of who that just don’t get electronic music, know that you are not alone. Enjoy.
