Darkwave and dating
(3) There's a similar problems with "Android Lust": a woman from bangladesh raised in the US - first release in 1998. Can you find someone from the german scene in the mid-80s who'll swear they started talking about darkwave the moment they heard "The Cure"?What has that to do with German darkwave in 1990 or so? Not when did some band start playing that you can later call "darkwave", but when was the term first used? Anyway, I may indluge in another re-write, though when I'm done I'm afraid it'll look a lot like the first writeup that I did...It is characterized by the use of ethereal atmosphere and angelic female voices but also adds strong influences from classical music.But Neoclassical Darkwave is distinct from the academic art music form known as neoclassical music, a style of classical music dating from the early twentieth century which emphasized formal perfection, elegance of style and purity of taste.Basically I thinking the more connections with established festivals / magazines / labels, the more use the article will have.
There are also a number of European labels that promote the genre and we should consider working a few of them into the article.On with the minutiae: (0) My contention is that "darkwave" means different things to different people, which means that you need multiple definitions to explain it: this is okay, it happens. My writeup began with the german usage, which seems to have come first; then I talked about the Projekt label association which if anything is the first thing people think of in the US; and also mentioned some other associations (e.g. The distinctions between definitions have become totally blurred and the third meaning has been dropped completely.Let me repeat the main point here one more time: there is no one definition that will satisfy everyone: don't just delete a definition that doesn't work for you personally.Femmy V (talk) , 13 January 2008 (UTC) I think Dark Wave is not really gothic rock - sometimes it is a mixture from gothic rock and wave, maybe caused by the success of The Cure which are influencial band in the late 80ies.But Das Ich and also Goethes Erben are not really wave music, they are something completely different - Neue Deutsche Todeskunst, a different style.
