In a recent interview with MTV, Jack White was asked whether he would be making electronic music if he was starting up his career in this decade. His response? White said that due to his upbringing in the tradition of American southern music, like country, rock-a-bility and bluegrass, or as he calls it, “living” music. He doesn’t see dance music as containing the same “alive elements,” he says. Check out a video of that interview here.

    Ha – that looks suspiciously like a synth that gal is playing behind him. I agree that electronic music can be cold, as can l rock music or any music it depends on how it’s done. It suspect that the same thing was said about electric guitars initially so it’s all sort of relative. I think there’s lots of electronic music with life as far back as the pioneers such as Vangelis you just have to look for it a bit. Unfortunately, the demand from the masses has accounted for a lot of lifeless electronic music.
