Eve’s Bayou Eve’s Bayou, a movie set in rural Louisiana, opens with a party. People dancing, drinking, and a high class image of the African- American family. The Batistes' wealth and social standing is interesting during this time period. A voice is soon heard in the background, which almost serves as foreshadowing. I had to watch the movie again to establish that the voice was Eve’s voice, but as an adultOne concept that is important in this film is theme; the overall universal theme is growth.
The first group started off the right foot with an interpretation of the Rocky Theme Song. The members of the band used instruments like trumpets, saxophones, trombones, piano, drums, flugelhorns, and clarinets. Throughout the song different members of the band would switch off doing impressive solos, however my favorite was one of the trumpet solos that was performed by Ian Martinez, he truly stole everyone’s attention with his energy and apparent love for his part in the song. The ensemble played many songs I enjoyed, and was excited to hear a rendition of an old classic by Count Basie. The second ensemble and the first ensemble were similar in style, but the second ensemble used considerably less solos and played with an electric guitarist.
The genre of this dance is jazz. During the introduction movements performed are based on high kicks, turns and a large spatial organisation. These movements are performed because they are angry for the death of Maria’s brother and want to realise anger and revenge. However throughout this sequence the girls are showing a calmer exterior, they use slower and softer movement because they know how to handle their anger and have a control manner. Development – this section illustrates the spreading of controlled feelings throughout the gang.
If someone walks in or looks around the door and you are not laid in a sleeping position, don't make any quick movements or they will see or hear you. Just close your eyes and try your best to stay still and act like you are falling asleep or have fallen asleep. ------------------------------------------------- Think about the best way to lay. Lay facing away from the door or wherever it is light, to reduce the chance of the person seeing you if you
Overall, the elements found within the tempo, tone, and melody made this piece my favorite. The sudden switch from fast-paced jazz to a slow, emotionally stirring composition strengthened the performance and gave the audience something to remember. My least favorite piece in the concert was “Lament” by J.J. Johnson. This piece was performed by the Harville Quartet and consisted of a trombone, guitar, bass, and drums. Similar to “God Bless the Child,” “Lament” was also an adagio tempo piece.
The movie Drumline is a movie about a “wow” appealing, synchronized band. The average person watching this movie would simply enjoy it as it is. Laugh at the jokes, listen to the story etc… But someone such as Mrs.Chabonneau, see’s this movie not only as a drumming movie, but an hour and a half long life lesson. Many quotes, themes and messages behind this move entail much on how important being a leader really is. Aside the crazy drum solo’s, the loud tubas and yelling coaches, the movie is jam-packed with messages.
Everyone knows what it's like to feel really scared. A pounding heartbeat, faster breathing, nervous sweating, butterflies in the stomach. But whether that fright is caused by watching a nail-biting horror movie, listening to a spine-chilling story, or walking through a dark haunted house on Halloween, some people actually love feeling frightened. They thrive on the latest gore movie. They love roller coasters, perhaps even sky diving.
Watching these shows and movies bring comfort and enjoyment to me in my busy schedule. I smile and laugh watching the antics of Charlie Chaplin Tramp and Buster Keaton hilarious stunts. Watching Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers dance is magically. Also I am a huge Whovian, a fan of Doctor Who, so I am able to watch it with my sister and talk about it with my friends. I do appreciate a good movie and show, but it is difficult to catch these if your not home all the time to see them.
The second piece played was “Summertime”, and it was jazzy with a very smooth sound. It also sounded very familiar to me. In this piece the trombones were harmonizing beautifully. The last piece played by the first group was called “Finale from the ‘William Tell Overture’”. This song was very popular, and it is also very popular.
