By this, I mean the stuff she hasn't already heard while in Flux or Afterlife etc. Basically, all other types of music apart from Electronic/Techno, or whatever the genre the music in all of the clubs are. I think that she would be quite amazed at the diversity of our music, since we do have countless genres and sub-genres of music. Sometimes one or two new ones may pop up every now and then.

How would she react to the instruments? The rhythms? The melodies? What type of music do you think she would prefer? These are just some the questions that i'm thinking of.

You have to realize that all the other races are going to have just as wide a variety of music as humanity does.

I bet the krogan can totally do justice to death metal.

Tali strikes me as someone who would love happy techno.

Yeah, I know that other races would most likely have just as wide a range of music, but, we never get to hear any really...which is pretty dissapointing, since I'd have liked to have listened to at least a bit of Quarian, Asari or maybe even Turian music. Maybe that's something they can delve into a bit more in ME3?

Also, Tali has never heard any other music apart from human music anyway (maybe some Quarian?) so it would all be quite strange to her.

The thing about having alien music in the game is they'd have to hire a whole music team instead of just one man.

Anyways, I think she would like Journey. And it's not because I'm writing a fanfiction about a Journey cover band
made up of three quarians, a human, and a turian that goes by the name of Pilgrimage.

I agree with the happy techno thing.  Also, I think she'd probably like other "happy" types of music too, but I have no idea what type of instrumentation Quarians would be accustomed to.

I like to think she'd like the same music I do, but I'm sure everyone would like to think the same thing :P

Also, keep in mind that unless she would turn off auto-translate to listen to music, rhyme and meter would get a bit messed up a lot of the time...  Of course, I listen to things like "Boten Anna" or "Omnibus" or "Dragostea Din Tei" in their original languages, so...

....CC approves.

Personally, I think Tali would go for the more classical music. Instrumental pieces, you know?

Well, I got the feeling that Tali liked the music in Flux, so at least she likes that type of music.

Quarians have fewer fingers than humans. Does that mean that perhaps their musical instruments (especially string and wind) would make fewer notes?

She would probably think its trash. Like the rap and shitty pop "music" I'm hoplessly exposed to every school day... :dry:

I'd like to see Quarians play some thrash metal twice as fast XD But of course, they could be a super race that's awesome at everything - just waiting for the right moment to reveal themselves ;)

I think that she might like The Beatles' music. I dunno, it just seems like the type of music she would enjoy :) Maybe some happy music like this:

THE BEATLES- HERE COMES THE SUN


I just can't help smiling while listening to that. :D

I would like to think that she'd like this type of stuff too:

Jamiroquai - Blue Skies (Flux Pavilion Remix)


Think of the bass response that that helmet would have, too...

(obviously nobody knows what type of music she'd like, but hypothetical stuff like this is fun)

Yes, I think some kind of techno, electronic music might appeal to her. The Flux music seemed to interest her. Although, the fact that she called it "Interesting" made it seem as if she, as a quarian, was unfamiliar with techno dance music.

Part of me thinks she'd have an appreciation for classical music, too. She'd find it beautiful, and it would probably amaze her. Musical instruments like what would be found in an orchestra would seem incredible and rare to her. In fact, when you think about it, there likely aren't any wind instruments on the flotilla. Just percussion and strings, maybe.

Adamo, Tali + Shepard FF. Currently on Chapter 30. It seems to be pretty well liked, so, uh, check it out!
