As County Supervisors consider a possible ban on electronic dance music events on county property, the Los Angeles Times reports concert promoter Live Nation has agreed to additional safety measures for future events. These include increased cooling stations, free water, and increased security and medical services onsite.

Meanwhile, the event HARD Presents ... A Night at Fairplex with DVBBS, Juicy J, Destructo, AC Slater and more at the Fairplex sports facility in Pomona, Calif., that was scheduled for Sept. 10 has now been cancelled and tickets will be refunded. The two-day HARD Day of the Dead festival on Oct. 31 and Nov. 1 has also been scaled down from 65,000 to 40,000 attendees per day.

Skrillex, Future, Flying Lotus & More Set for HARD Day of the Dead

A spokeswoman for the nonprofit Los Angeles County Fair Assn. told the LA Times, "Fairplex will continue to work with Live Nation, the Board of Supervisors and all public agencies to ensure the continued safety of all guests. We will work together to do everything we can."

On Aug. 1, 19-year-old Katie Dix of Camarillo, Calif., and 18-year-old Tracy Nguyen of West Covina, Calif., died of drug overdoses while attending the Hard Summer music festival at the Fairplex.

Safety at EDM festivals has been a real concern of the county's since a 15-year-old girl died from an Ecstasy overdose after attending the Electronic Daisy Carnival at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. That was followed with discussion of banning such events and resulted in the creation of task force to set safety guidelines for electronic music events.

Following Live Nation and the Fair Assn.'s most recent actions, the LA Times reports still a ban remains is being considered by Los Angles County Supervisors.

...Classical Indian Music It is undeniable that the music of a people is embedded in their culture and traditions, and so is the Indian classical music. The tones and sounds of the Indian music bear influence from the Hindu religion and their culture. Instrumentation and notation has been quite unique unlike the Western music. Ravi Shankar is among Indian musicians who have revolutionalized the classical Indian music and has won three Grammy Wards. Although Shankar interacted with other artists from other cultures, his music reflects on the Indian musical traditions. The classical Indian music is reputed style of music which even today espouses the aesthetics of the ancient times despite having had influence from other genres of music (Massey & Massey, 1996). The classical music of India is categorized into two; the Hindustani music which is from Northern Indian region and Carnatic music from Southern India. Massey and Massey (1996) argue that a common similarity of the two genres is that they employ one raga per song and the music has heavy improvisation element. Raga is what may be compared to mode or scale in Western music. The difference is evident because Hindustani music has the heavy influence of Persian music as opposed to Carnatic music and vocalist element is emphasized in Carnatic music than in Hindustani music. The Indian music is characteristic of tala which is considered as rhythmic pattern enhanced by drums called the tabla and the accompaniment the stringed......

The instruments used in rock include synthesizers, Hammond organ, and piano. A group of musicians who perform rock music are referred to as a rock band. One of the rock bands that I enjoy its music is the Coldplay. Coldplay was formed in 1996 as an alternative rock band. The group came up with numerous songs with Viva la Vida being one of the best songs. The song, viva la vida is a Spanish word that means long live life. It was released in 2008 on parlophone. The major themes are war, death and life.

I had a good seat with a fair view in the top right cascade of the theatre. The recital began promptly at the scheduled time as expected. When Mr. Howard was introduced the lights were dimmed down a little and were centered on the stage. Mr. Howard began by positioning the violin carefully under his neck. When Mr. Howard started playing his violin you could feel the vibration from each piece he performed. Mr. Howard performed Preludio. Gavotte en Rondeau by Bach which was a perpetual motion masterpiece and a ‘country’ dance of French origin.

...Paper #1: Music World History 4th period Music has been around since the Paleolithic age and has evolved through the years, entertaining almost every person alive. Like said in the thesis statement, music has been around since the Paleolithic age, as time went on music evolved. There are many different variations of music. The variations tend to revolutionize throughout the ages. The different genres of music consist of pop, rock and roll, hip hop, rap, jazz, and many more. Everyone’s taste in music is different, it could depend on their personality or their mood. Music can be used in so many different ways. It is amazing how music is a part of everyone’s life, even though they may not know. I consider music to be the anchor for all entertainment. Music can be played by many different instruments. It can be played by almost anything from pens, guitars, drums, electronic devices, and basically almost every item in the world. Like I said in the previous paragraph; I consider music to be the anchor for all entertainment. I say this because music itself is entertaining just listening too, but music also gives “spice” to things. It’s like a cherry on top of an ice cream sandwich, just think of a movie without music. I don’t think that is even possible for someone to make a movie without music. The first black and white motion pictures were actually just music and well, moving pictures. I think that music helps many people, it can be used as a stress relieve. Music can......

Freud came up with many other good theories before is death in 1939, due to cancer.  The Romantic period lasted from 1825 through 1900. In the period it was made up of richer harmonies which are better to listen and more clearer. It contains a larger orchestral force, mainly emotional music. The rhythm is in a rubato tempos and it rarely changes into a metrical pattern. With a larger orchestra the music is very smooth, a wide range of instruments. The romantic composers were often inspired by literary, pictorial, and other nonmusical sources. Consequently, program music, or music that follows a nonmusical plan, was widely cultivated, leading to the development of the symphonic poem. Many Romantic composers in the 18th century were influenced by Richard Wagner, such as: Brahms, Wolf, Mahler, Strauss, Mussorgsky, Grieg and Sibelius.  Johannes Brahms (1833-1897) was a young composer who was inspired to write chamber music for the clarinet owning to his acquaintance with an outstanding clarinetist, Richard Muhlfeld. With Muhlfeld, Brahms wrote his “Trio for Clarinet, Cello, and Piano” in 1891. Also in 1891 he wrote “The Great Quintet for Clarinet and Strings” and in 1894 “Sonatas for Clarinet and Piano.” These works......

...MUSIC : THE GOOD,THE NICE,THE DOPE! “ Music is the drug of my choice!” is an ink on one of my favourite tees. And heck ,it’s true! Music is a sweet poison which even makes death (boring lectures in reality) tolerable .this poison is available under various labels – rock, blues,metal,pop,RnB etc.For my convenience, I have arranged these cracks under three stacks: the good,the nice & the third the dope. In our hood, we have lot of ‘good drug’ users. They can be distinguished from their over the top hairdo.They have a great affinity for the devil’s number.They have a self – destruct habit of head banging. One shouldn’t bug them because they have a reputation for their temper. But to be honest my rock listening & metalhead homies ,when I heard the crew of Jimmy Page, Robert Plant, John Paul Jones, and John Bonham, I certainly got ‘Led’ out on my ‘stairway to heaven’! We all know the nice drug,pop does lighten up our minds & heighten our spirits & RnB does feed our souls. It gives us a goody-goody feeling. This nice drug have various manufacturers ranging from legends like Madonna,Stevie Wonders,Elton john to newbies like Justin beiber,Lady Gaga,Katy Perry,Taylor Swift etc.Artists like Akon ,Usher,Rihanna have taken RnB to an another level. But when I need to be real high & tight I use my third stack ‘the dope’.

Media literate youth and adults are better able to understand the complex messages we receive from television, radio, Internet, newspapers, magazines, books, billboards, video games, music, and all other forms of media.

...Functions of Music Music therapy Music therapy is a treatment method that involves using music to enhance health. There are many different approaches to music therapy, including creating music, listening to music, and talking about music. Although music therapy is often used to promote mental and emotional health, it may also help improve quality of life for people coping with physical health conditions. . In the 17th century, the scholar Robert Burton's The Anatomy of Melancholy noted that music has an "excellent power ...to expel many other diseases" and he called it "a sovereign remedy against despair and melancholy." What Does Music Therapy Involve? A music therapy session may incorporate a number of different elements, such as making music, writing songs, or passively listening to music. While music therapists often aim to foster the patient's emotional expression, there can be many other different goals in a music therapy session. These goals include relief of stress or anxiety, improvement of mood, and enhancement of quality of life for people dealing with illness. Research shows that patients do not need to have any musical ability to benefit from music therapy. Benefits of Music Therapy Here's a look at some key study findings on the health effects of music therapy: 1) Music Therapy and Depression Music therapy may help some patients fight depression, according to a review published in 2008.
