Another thing teens were crazy about were music festivals. They would travel all across the country to go to festivals that would go on for days. The largest festival of this decade was Woodstock. Rock promoters rented a farm in Woodstock, New York and organized a performance for an audience of around 50,000 people, however over 400,000 people ended up showing up from across the country (the editors of Time-Life 146). The farm turned into a huge campground filled with teens that came there for peace, love, and music (the editors of Time-Life).
The Bass Clarinet The bass clarinet, invented in the latter half of the 1700s, was originally used only as an orchestra instrument. By the 1920’s, it was employed in bands, often doubling or substituting for other deep-voiced instruments. It is a single-reed woodwind instrument. The range is one octave below that of the b-flat soprano clarinet. Ever since its invention in the late 18th century, the bass clarinet has evolved into the instrument that is used in orchestras and bands.
Susie Pummill Mr. Michael Mitchell 6123-82553-HIST 1302 8 Aug 2012 Rock and Roll: Musical Genre and American Lifestyle Rock and Roll isn’t just about a musical genre; it’s about a lifestyle. Rock Music shapes what is the American popular society’s viewpoint and belief system, not only in its inception beginning in the 1950s, but also now in the 21st century. Its musical message highlights different eras’, political times, and challenges of the moment. Cultural attitudes and opinions on every aspect of life including, racism, war, politics, and economy, are the focus of this sound. With every decade evolving this musical art with new unique styles, and many subcategories of the genre, Rock is the most popular kind of music, and
About sixty years ago, the guitar underwent a modification that would forever change the rest of the musical world- it was electrified. The electric guitar adds a whole new dimension to many genres of music. However, the acoustic guitar is still often used in today’s popular tunes. The acoustic and electric guitar differ enough when it comes to mechanics, sound, and purpose to stand side-by-side in the music industry. The mechanics of both the acoustic guitar and the electric guitar involve the materials used to create each instrument and the process of manufacturing each instrument.
However, despite these bands belonging to a previous generation of music their popularity is still as high as ever. As they are major influences on their contemporaries, such as Good Charlotte, Yellowcard, New Found Glory, Fall Out Boy, Simple Plan, All Time Low, and +44 and Angels and Airwaves. However the last two bands were formed by the previous members of Sum 41 and Blink-182. This genre has greatly influenced other genres most particularly the modern indie movement from 2000 to present as many of today’s current bands list one or more of the above as influence.
During the 19th century, more regular people began getting involved in music by participating in amateur choirs or joining brass bands. By the early 1900s, the big trends in popular music were the increasing popularity of vaudeville theatres and dance halls and the new invention—the gramophone player. By 1920 there were almost 80 record companies in Britain, and almost 200 in the USA. Radio broadcasting of music, which began in the early 1920s, helped to spread popular songs to a huge audience. In the 1950s and 1960s, television began to play an increasingly important role in distributing new popular music.
The term "screamo" was initially applied to a more aggressive offshoot of emo that developed in San Diego in 1991, which used short songs that grafted "spastic intensity to wilfully experimental dissonance and dynamics." The genre experienced a popularity boost in the late 1990s and early 2000s, and by mid-2000s the over-saturation of the scene encouraged bands such as Alexisonfire to incorporate more experimental elements. Due to the popularity and evolution of the style to a point of being unrecognizable, the term "skramz" is sometimes used to describe bands from the first wave of screamo. How emo language is uniquely employed? Emo as we know is emotional, and the
