Learn IDM Music Producing with the Recording Connection:

IDM, or Intelligent Dance Music, has its stylistic origins in experimental music, ambient techno and avant-garde art music. Unlike other forms of electronic music that have a defined point of origin, IDM has a much less defined origin with simultaneous beginnings in the U.K., U.S. and Japan. Many critics have issues with the name IDM thinking it derogatory to other electronic music genres, and while they may have a point, there is no doubt that this unique form of electronic music stands out as a more intellectual form of listening. Among the many subgenres of IDM are ambient house, glitch, folktronica and break core.

Learning the art of science of IDM requires study and hard work on your part. Are you ready to make music that expands upon the brilliant work of acts like Future Sound of London, Boards of Canada, Aphex Twin, The Orb, System 7, Plastik Man, and others?
