Tropedia

  • Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

Electronic Music is, unsurprisingly enough, music made with electronic instruments, such as synthesizers, samplers and drum machines.

What you use the equipment to make... well that is a very varied thing. Synthesizers and samplers and drum machines are very flexible in the range of sounds they can make, and as such, electronic music is very varied.

You can make pretty much standard pop music with it (often called Synth Pop), you can make the aural equivalent of Mind Rape with it (see Industrial) or you can mix it with many other styles.

Arguably, pure electronic music can be traced back to Kraftwerk (the band, not the troper of the same name), who made Synth Pop music that deliberately exploited its synthetic origins. Kraftwerk was one of, if not the first act that exclusively used electronic instruments to generate their output.

Sub-genres include:
