This doesn't really answer my questions. To be clear ,just in case you are not understanding, I understand the fact that a song that called nightcore is actually nightcore. What I want to know is what would you call those "so-called nightcores" that are not nightcores at all.


It could answer your question. If you had went deeper in the topic, you would find this:

Before calling any of us batshit crazy for doing this, please refer to this thread. Complaints can be made there if you have any, but before you do so, please actually read through the thread. Seriously, cut us all some slack.


*Clicks the link*

*Reads*

The term "speed edit" was used there constantly, so you could guess by reading the whole thread how could you had call them (even better, it would give you the freedom to name them anyway you want, except for Nightcore/Night~stuff~/etc).

So, in a way, are the terms nightcore and the night prefix trademarked?

Question about the description. According to a few minutes of using google, tempo in music terminology is the speed or pace of the music piece. "Very definition of 'speed' is a combination of both tempo and pitch." Speed is a synonym for tempo. I believe this was supposed to refer to the earlier statement as well as how pitch and tempo are linked to each other when it comes to speeding up or down. I am new so I found it to be rather peculiar and I am sorry if this troubles any of you.

After reading this thread and other threads, I understand better why people here are sometimes quick to call the "nightcore" uploaders on Youtube "ignorant."

Many uploaders on Youtube are not aware of the elaborate, detailed history behind nightcore. They may not have even heard the the original Nightcore group that started it all.

They most likely aren't aware that nightcore has become a distinct style/genre with its own set definition. They probably don't know that nightcore has a somewhat specific procedure that must be followed.

In my opinion, making nightcore can be likened to performing a science experiment. While making nightcore isn't as strict as a science experiment, it's certainly not so freeform that you can use any song you want to.

If an experiment calls for sulfur, you can't say something like "I don't like sulfur since it smells so bad, so I'll use sodium instead." You must use sulfur, otherwise you would be doing the experiment wrong and not get the intended result.

Likewise, the procedure for nightcore calls for certain electronic genres, doesn't it? This means that you can't use something like pop or hip hop, otherwise you'd be doing it wrong. You would not get the result intended by the founding fathers of nightcore.

I'm not sure if this is the right place to ask this, but I stumbled upon this post in someone's blog:

Finally the fans.... Yes the fans have corrupted Thomas S Nilsen (a.k.a. DJ TNT) and Steffen Ojala Søderholm (a.k.a. DJ SOS) way of producing nightcore. Fans are now creating mixes in R&B, jazz and other forms of genres that they can think of, but then again I suppose that nightcore is aimed at those that are at the ages of 11 - 16 and have an interest in mixing music.


Does anyone know what this post means? It was kinda hard to understand at first glance.

I looks like a post of someone who speaks up about the wrongly used term 'Nightcore'. Doesn't seem to be hard to understand at first glance at all.

The Original Post is a fantastic definition of what Nightcore is from what I've experienced so far on youtube over the past few years. I've got some questions though.

As it states, Nightcore is a speed edit of an electronic song. What happens if you write a song specifically to the sound characterized by Nightcore? Is it a Nightcore song? Technically it's not an edit, it's a creation. My initial reaction is that now you cross over into Happy Hardcore and other Hard Dance genres. So let's say I write a song, it's pitched up, it's faster, it's hard, dancy, and upbeat. Is it not considered Nightcore for no other reason than it's not an edit?

Any attempt to answer these questions would be appreciated.
