Mac software for electronic music creation

My daughter took a songwriting class at school this year and they used Logic. Her laptop is a Macbook Air. Is there something similar or is compatible we can get for her Mac? She wants to make mostly dance type music. Is it worth getting a keyboard to go with the laptop? And do we want to think about getting something that she can record with? (she also has an acoustic guitar.) Any advice for the budding electronic musician would be appreciated!

Trying to find the Time Warp. No, not that Time Warp.

When I was a kid in the mid-eighties, my family had a (Sony?) sample CD with music from several electronic musicians. I'm trying to find out what was on that CD so that I might be able to listen to some of that music again. Bonus challenge: I barely remember anything searchable about it! [more inside]

Where talk music?

MFers where do you like to go to discuss or read discussions about music, specifically modern electronic music? I don't mean where to read articles, reviews, interviews; those are nice, and I read those websites, and I know most of those websites have forums... but most of them don't seem to be very good, and to be honest I haven't really, really explored them. Is there anywhere that consistently has a high level discourse from users? Or is it all 90% signatures, images, and yelling "BIG TRACK" ... [more inside]

Music from "The Institute" (2013) trailer - what is it?

In the trailer for "The Institute", the first piece of music is a minimalist electronic/trumpet piece. I've tried using the iPhone apps Shazam and Soundhound to identify it but there's not enough of the music (without voiceover) to identify it. Any ideas as to how I can identify it?

What is this Gramatik jam?

Not too long ago I went to a Bassnectar concert. Gramatik opened and one song sounded like some kind of electronic country rock jam. No vocals, just relentless, driving guitars and bass. Sorry, this is all I've got. Someone, anyone? What is this song?

Good, current ambient drum-n-bass?

I'm looking for recommendations for contemporary, ambient drum-n-bass. Or, if the genre names have shifted, something that does the same for me as the less bombastic output of LTJ Bukem. I have Chrissy Murderbot's mix, and that's also a good benchmark, though I think that comprises older stuff, too.

Here come the warm jets.

Feed me machine-sounding music that makes a nice, warm, vibraty feeling go all through my guttiwuts. The exact qualities I'm looking for are rumbly, fuzzy, and enveloping. The piece should not be overtly morose or threatening. Think "listening to the hypnotic sound of warm clothes tumbling in the dryer late at night." [more inside]

"You've got trouble coming!"

On Geir Jenssen's (AKA Biosphere) 2006 Album Cho Oyu 8201m - Field Recordings From Tibet, the song "Summit" features a speaking sample near the end where someone named Boutros calls in on a two-way radio and warns the other party of an oncoming typhoon. The next-to-last line of the conversation is "The good king in his infinite wisdom declared the two-way radio illegal in the mountains." Where is this sample from?
