Concert report

On May 2, 2013, the Jazz concert at YOSHI’s OAKLAND, my friend and me had their first concert of this semester, the jazz band called The Bad Plus is from United States, and there are special guest drummer Dave King, pianist Ethan Iverson and bassist Reid Anderson. The concert started at 10:00 pm and ended at 11:30 pm. The jazz concert performed five songs during the concert and there were three songs are the most unforgettable for me “People Like You”, “Never Stop” and “2 P.M.” Jazz music, like all music, tells a story and here are the stories “People Like You”, “Never Stop” and “2 P.M.” “People Like You”, written by Reid Anderson .i think it an song for someone they loved. The song was very pretty, and it has a different genre than other songs in the concert. It is honestly hard for me to recommend this song to anyone, for I thought it was dull and lacked the depth of the other songs throughout the evening. It can clean people mind. At the beginning of this song, a piano and bass began to alternate the melody in this song as though they were like two lovers dancing in the wonderland. The rhythm, which was continuously steady, seemed to get faster like a heartbeat by the climax of the song. The bass would pick up strong at the same time and then die down again. There was such an edgy sound to this performance. And really can take people in the song’s wonderland. “Never stop”, was written by Reid Anderson. It was a beautiful song. I am not sure what I enjoyed more, the fact that the drummer and piano played with such passion and made the song his own life force or that this song reminded me of my childhood. This song reminded me of something interesting in my life. The song was fun and although the song had a lot of repetition, I loved listening to the changes over and over again. The song start and end in an infinite tempo in people’s brain. After this song, the brilliant beat still going around in my mind. Some time I will sing the beat when I am taking a shower. And the last song which gave me a deep impression is called “2 P.M. written by Ethan Iverson it is an upbeat song, the most love by me. In the instrumental version of this song, the piano and drum consonance set the exciting mood at the beginning of this song. A piano and drum alternated in the middle of the song. As the passion of the song heated up, the texture changed within the song as the drummer’s performance took the melody and the piano and bass within the ensemble were in accompaniment. The rhythm, which was continuously surprise me because the beat is really fast at the begin, and after the drummer‘s solo, the song was going with a crescendo from very soft to the end. I think It was also at this point this song was increasingly getting louder in the world. The Jazz concert was an enjoyable evening full of great music and intellectually stimulating experiences of music that I would not have listened to if not for this class. Diversification is an important lesson to learn when viewing music because all music has a differ story from the differ song .i will look for other differ concert in my summer break. Because this concert is truly shock my deep music heart.

...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......

Classical Music Concert Report

...Sina Valizadeh Concert Report 2 03/19/14 Classical Music Concert Report The concert took place in Balboa Park at Spreckels Organ. I was there for about an hour and they played 7 songs. #1: Jared Jacobsen: Toccata from Symphony No.5, Opus 42 from Charles-Marie Widor (1844-1937) From the start of the song tempo was presto. It has a 1,2 rhythm and it is very simple overall until it goes toward the end of a song and you hear more different melodies. it had an amazing finishing. during the middle of the song you could've hear the middle parts with louder and harder melodies. #2: Jared Jacobsen: Toccata in D Minor, S. 565 from Jonathan Sebastian Bach (1685-1750) This piece almost took 10 minutes and by far i can say is one of the best classical songs I've ever heard. it seems like a happy song. a lot of high pitch sounds and melodies were used in this song. tempo was combination of presto and moderato and it seems like its a dramatic song. #3: Sam Rudenberg: Prelude in G minor, BWV 556 from Jonathan Sebastian Bach (1685-1750) Very relaxing song, decent speed and largo tempo. i can say it is esspresione and it gets loud at the end of a song. #4: Sam Rudenberg: Finale from Janet Correll (b. 1942) Its a romantic era, it has a story line and a song like melody, usually it narrates a story about some one or a specific event that happened in the history. kind of slow tempo and a 1.2 rhythm. i heard a little bit of syncopation as well. #5: Jared Jacobsen: oh Danny......

...Concert Attendance Report I went to go see Musica Antiqua Koln on Tuesday November 7 at the L.A. Philharmonic. The concert included the works from such famous composers from the Baroque period such as Heinrich Bach, Johann Christoph Bach, Georg Philipp Telemann, Johan Sebastian Bach, Johann David Heinichen, and Jan Dismas Zelenka. All of whom were either friends, relatives, or acquaintances of Johan Sebastian Bach. Prior to going to the concert I was not sure what to expect, I have been to concerts and small shows many times, but I have never been to a classical concert. Throughout the concert, I played to role of a perceptive listener which I believe is largely due in part to this class. This class has given me a whole new appreciation for classical music especially pieces from the Baroque Period, but I also listen to every piece of music in a way I have never listened before. I always analyze a musical pieces now, I listen to every piece of music fully giving it a chance, before passing judgment on it, and I now take pride in having a knowledge of a wider variety of musical styles. The instrumentation of the orchestra varied with each piece that was performed. Two Sonatas “a sinque”, by Heinrich Bach consisted of two violins, two violas, and a double bass. In this Sonata there is a 5 part texture evident throughout the piece. The Unity is evident through the double bass and the two violas. The listener is given variety through to violins. The rhythm of the...

...! ! ! ! There's so much technology and physicality to music – its a human thing. I'm blessed to have been born into an era where everything started evolving and I'm yet to see everything that does anything. Virtual machines that are able to manipulate our thoughts and inspire us to come up with new inventions everyday. Worlds greatest composers such as J S Bach , L V Beethoven, Mozart relied on the simplest system to compose the worlds greatest music from which the musicians in this era are inspired and influenced by. Even though a pencil and a paper was a bliss, musicians around the world today doesn't rely on it anymore. Ever since the birth of the computers the music industry has taken its strings to another level. Hollywood composers such as Hans Zimmer, Nick Glennie-Smith, and Brian Tyler has created the best scores that we have heard in the hollywood film and music industry today with computers and electronic hardware even-though The fact still remains the same. I couldn't agree more that the classical composers were more smart and had more original music than this era. What surprises me is that the living man with the most Oscar nominations, John Towner Williams (born February 8, 1932) an American composer, conductor and pianist who is considered one of the greatest film composers of all time. In a career spanning over six decades, he has composed some of the most popular and recognizable film scores in cinematic history such as Star Wars, Jaws , Super...

...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......

...call kuffaar to Islam by means of religious songs (nasheeds) accompanied by musical instruments When we want to attract Christians to Islam, is it permissible to use religious songs accompanied by music? Is it permissible to have a group called a religious group because they sing religious songs accompanied by musical instruments? Praise be to Allaah. In my opinion there is no need to attract people in this manner; you should use permissible means such as listening to Qur’aan with proper tajweed and tarteel (correct recitation) and listening to eloquent ahaadeeth which move the listener, and beneficial, moving poems (qaseedahs) and nasheeds. You can also provide clear proof of what is good about Islam and explain its teachings and noble aims which will demonstrate that it is the religion that befits the natural inclinations of man (deen al-fitrah) and encompasses all the interests of mankind. Whoever can only be attracted by things that include forbidden elements such as singing, instruments and music is no good and I do not think that he can be attracted to Islam at all. And Allaah knows best.

I can’t even imagine how the world would look like if there was no music. You can see many genres and artists in my playlist. Some of them gives me the strength, some gives me hope, some of them makes me to accept life as it is. Music is important part of life. It is a form of expression. It has no boundaries and it follows no guidelines. Essentially, to me, music is like air. It has no true shape or definiton, yet we need it to live. Imagine a world without music. All you’re left with is dust. Music is life istelf. As I mentioned, Music is one of the few things, that can help you escape your reality.

It will never vanish. You can’t touch music, but music can touch you. There are various type of music in the world. For......

...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.
