  • Gamelan Music
    651 words
    Objective description: The music is so abstract, it's almost as if some people just got together randomly and decided to make some noise. It's sometimes calming and sometimes stressful. It's like a call and response music, one section makes a noise and the other sections respond accordingly with a similar sounding rhythm, very interesting to listen to. Steel drums, chimes, drums, drones, flutes, and some other instruments, not even sure what the names are. I have heard them before but do not kno...

    2,582 words
    What is music censorship Music censorship can mean a lot of things to a lot of people. Basically it is the attempt or action taken by any agency to limit or curtail anything in music that a community may find offensive to its beliefs or values (college park: March 28). Music censorship has been around since the beginning of music itself. Up until recently, music was written in order to please royalty and the wealthy.

  • Just Being A Listener Of Music
    483 words
    The Musician There are many styles of music and many various ways in which to enjoy them. This is only rivaled by the number of people on the planet that have invented them. Through out history the various evolutions of traditions have used music as part of their cultures, ceremonies, and religions. However, one thing has always been unique to all of these things - the musicians themselves - the ones making the music. These unsung misfits have endured time and are the common thread throughout hi...

  • Whole Generation Of Music Listeners
    1,944 words
    Hard as it may be to believe, it has been twelve years since Nirvana's release of Nevermind, the album that most people who still could be referred to as Generation X-ers consider the seminal alternative rock LP of all time. Nirvana's crunching guitars and mangled lyrical styling's may not have the lasting artistic influence of, say, Bach, but for many people the band's widespread commercial and critical success marked a key turning point in radio rock n' roll. The slickly produced, monotonous a...
  • Rob's Music
    997 words
    By: CISSE DELUCA In Nick Hornby's High Fidelity, the main character, Rob, relates music to every aspect of his life. He utilizes music as an escape from his anxieties regarding his failing record store, relationship, and sense of self. Music provides Rob with the inspiration that keeps him going: Records have helped me to fall in love, no question. I hear something new, with a chord change that melts my guts, and before I know it I'm looking for someone. (169) Music prompts Rob to isolate himsel...
  • Just About Sex And Drugs
    330 words
    It was forever ago when listening to music involved people opening their precious, favorite albums, putting the vinyl discs on their turntables- careful not to smudge them, putting the needle on the first track and with their Mickey Mouse-ear headphones, rocking out. Of course, when their parents were out... they'd lose the headphones. Those were the days of real music. People would invest time to find the most obscure, crazy, indie rock band, Tower Records, Haffa's were some be-there-or-be-nowh...
  • Place
    315 words
    Just when you think the shelf life has expired on Volkswagen's Cabrio ad, it resurfaces with a vengeance. The commercial became an instant classic when it debuted last year with its breezy, low-key portrayal of a midsummer night's ride with the top down under a blanket of stars. You can almost hear the crackle of fireflies hitting the windshield. But you don't. Instead, you hear a soft, soothing voice. The spare strumming of an acoustic guitar. A simple melody full of wistful introspection. And ...
  • Little Brother
    618 words
    Little Brother: The Listening Describing this CD in three words would be personal, stylish, and free. Not "free" like it comes with your purchase of fifty dollars or more at Best Buy but "free" as in no boundaries or limitations. When I first put this album in my CD player and pressed play I was completely entranced by the sounds that followed. That was back in 2003 and still to this day you might catch me blasting songs in the morning or humming their tunes to sleep at night. If I try to put my...
  • Music Industry Needs Right
    758 words
    Is Napster illegal Tough question... Actually, the issue really isn't whether Napster is legal or not. The corporate suits and rich-bitch musicians would argue so, but it's just a cover for their fears. They " re basically afraid of Napster because its done something that hasn't happened in a while, but so desperately needed to happen. Napster has opened a door, a gigantic door, allowing the music industry to evolve drastically. Many people are insecure about this, but there's really no way arou...

    743 words
    Juan Estrada Basically, My taste in music very much, I grew up with my parents old spanish music such as nortenas, folklorico, and tejano music I myself enjoy the tejano music. Tejano music is a kind of country mixed in with some polka together or that's my opinion anyway, my mother and father like the old folklorico music it's a kind of music that started out in or around the early 1800's and it just progressed to a newer more kind of hip music which pretty much turned out to be tejano music, t...

  • Pink Floyd's Music
    793 words
    Three Quarters of the way through typing my first essay, which was just going to be about music in general, my word-processor program decided it would be fun to crash and lose all of my unsaved information. After the volley of profanity and screaming, I started out on another essay, and while I sit here and listen to Pink Floyd's Wish You Were Here, I think I could write a more complete and on-topic paper about this one particular band that I like, instead of trying to outline all the different ...
