The sounds coming from his guitar seemed to make a comparison of himself as being a free spirit that had a drive of passion for the music he was making. Throughout the performance it showed that on stage he enjoyed what he was doing and wanted everyone who watched him to feel the exact same way as he did. Hendrix knew how to get the crowd moving to the sounds of his guitar almost to the point of no worries but enjoying the music with the people that surrounded you at the festival. Seeing this musical experience myself made me wish I could’ve witness this kind of greatness and share it amongst my friends in that time period. Overall, what I’ve learned about music is that music is not only written but also speaks like we do as humans but in a different language sort of speak.
When Gilmour joined, he took much of his guitar sound from the sonic palette used for The Beatle’s The White Album. He used the arpeggios of Dear Prudence and You Never Give Me Money as jumping off points for his own playing, particularly on the tracks Any Colour you Like and Eclipse from Dark Side of the Moon. Roger Walters was a big fan of John Lennon, who took inspiration from the confessional song writing style of Lennon’s 1970 Plastic Ono Band. Possibly the biggest influence on the recording of Dark Side of the
It is recognized all over the world, and it has the ability to bring people together in times of joy, tragedy, war, and peace. As someone who understands both the simplicity and the complexity of music, I am very opinionated as to what makes music “good” or in better words, worth listening to. Composers such as Vivaldi, Mozart, and many others helped to define music of their generations. Everyone knew and appreciated the works they composed, and a great number of people still find the time to appreciate it. In the rock and roll era, The Beatles, Elvis Presley, Buddy Holly, Jimi Hendrix, and Led Zeppelin started revolutions in their own ways.
If you have ever heard the original versions of “Take The “A” Train”, “It Don’t Mean A Thing…”, “Satin Doll”, or “Stompin At The Savoy”, and the long list of jazz hits goes on and on, then you have undoubtedly had the pleasure of listening to one of the greatest composers and musicians that has ever lived. If you have heard those works performed live by the originator, then you have sat amongst greatness. Many great names come to mind when jazz is mentioned but there is one that leads the crowd and has left a legacy that will not soon be forgotten. While his birth certificate may read Edward Kennedy Ellington, he is more commonly known through out the world as “Duke”. He was born on 29 April 1899 to mother Daisy Kennedy Ellington and
What Chuck was successful at doing, was to turn those stereotypes around and proclaim that his brand of music (he was named the Godfather of Death metal for a reason) dealt with issues of life, and though he did write gore lyrics, they were merely tongue in cheek, B level horror movie lyrics. How was he able to do this while escaping any criticism from critics? How was he able to be so successful with only a guitar and a couple of other band members? We must dig deep into his life to find out what kind of person Chuck really was, and how his success was firmly established into becoming the most influential guitar player and founder of the most successful death metal band of all
Vivaldi was progressive musically. He established the concerto form as an instrumental standard, played with the idea that the soloist was at war with the larger orchestra and using the contrasts to dramatic effect, not only between players but in speed and volume levels as well, and he pushed the envelope on violin technique, something in which he probably remained untouched. His usual writing style was antiphony, a simple style, which allowed him to experiment with instrument solos and maintain a light and innocent texture to the music. Vivaldi was one of the rare Italian composers interested in woodwind instruments. He composed several concertos for the bassoon, oboe, recorder and flute, as well as the rarer clarinet.
Jimi Hendrix was one bad dude. He is arguably the best electric guitar player in the history of the world. Surprisingly, Hendrix never even new how to read or write music, which makes him even more of a beast. Hendrix began to gain interest in music as a young boy. He learned from artist like B.B King and Buddy Holly.
He wins the twenty million rupees but that is not his first apprehension, Latika is. The director, Danny Boyle and co-director Loveleen Tandan use powerful tracks to shift the tone and mood in the film. The music used in Slumdog Millionaire helps the viewer easily differentiate the scenes from Jamal’s daunting yet blissful past and his poor-spirited present. A.R. Rahman was hired to create the score for this magnificent piece of art.
The Way it Moves Us Who is Ennio Morricone? This man is the “master mind” behind any and all things music in Zeffirelli’s film production of Hamlet. Morricone’s first film score was relatively undistinguished, but he was hired by Sergio Leone for A Fistful of Dollars (1964) on the strength of his song arrangements (IMDb.com. Web). He has written nearly 400 film scores (Imdb.com.
What does music mean to anyone? To me music is like a life line. I listen to all kinds of music but my favorite would have to be country music. I grew up listening to people like Dolly Parton, George Strait and Garth Brooks. County music is a music that people can relate to.
