You should just use google for all this

And next time you speak to your teacher tell him he's an ass.

Couldn't you have at least rolled all of these threads into one?

Exactly...

What kind of teacher is that anyway?

If I was a teacher I'd ask my students to come up with a definition for themselves. Make them listen to music and think a little bit...

I always defined techno as simply futuristic house, if we're talking about techno proper.

The second definition of techno is just a catchall term for electronic music. That might be a regional thing though. I dunno.

I would say that the techno is non-teleological EDM that avoids the classic means of western music for building tension. I.E., techno proper doesn't have "big hooks" and doesn't rely on chord changes to push the song along or give it structure.

Obviously there are thousands of examples that prove this wrong, but from model 500 to underground resistance to vainqueur to luke slater to marcel dettmann, i think it's a decent catchall definition.

You could also just define techno as "the best form of edm"

Also, the normal binary in western music of melody/harmony > rhythm/timbre is reversed

in techno, rhythm/timbre > melody/harmony

again, generalizations, but i think they hold water

Techno, well,, the term "house" hadn't even been coined....that happened many years later. Trying to put a handle on that is like trying to put a handle on the word sex. It's a pretty broad category. You could begin to narrow it down and probably be safe to say that there aren't many Oboe's involved

I would just define this as a good starting point for making music.

Go listen to the following podcasts

Dave Clarkes White Noise
Chris Liebings CLR
Droid Behaviour

And that will give you a good idea of oldschool and modern techno.

For me the ultimate expressions of techno are things like umeks late 90s period Lanicor etc , early Advent stuff, Regis & Surgeons 90s stuff, Sandwell district etc.

Very subjective and to be honest not really correct

strings of life , a genre defining classic, biiiiig hook , big chord change.
Red2, another classic, one big hook all day long..

I always liked the term "high tech soul", the op should watch the film of the same name.
