Devic and Buddhic Music: Introduction. I first encountered the notions of deva music and buddhic music in Music: Its Secret Influence throughout the Ages (London: Rider, 1958), by British composer and theosophist Cyril Scott (1879-1970). I was doing research for my book Music and the Soul: A Listener’s Guide to Transcendent Musical Experiences (2004). I had not previously encountered the terms and wondered what they meant and how they applied to music. It seemed that devas (Sanskrit for “Shining Ones,” or gods–something like the Christian and Muslim angels) were nonphysical beings capable of influencing or inspiring music.

They ranged in a hierarchy from simple nature spirits (elves, fairies, brownies, and the like) to mighty archangels. This was my first exposure to the theosophical world view. After Music and the Soul was published, I began to explore the theosophical world view in depth, starting in late 2005. Devas have no human “passions or sorrows” and no moral sense. There are several levels of inspiration by devas. Prepared piano - Wikipedia. Phillip Zoubek's prepared piano A prepared piano is a piano that has had its sound altered by placing objects (called preparations) on or between the strings. Technique[edit] Although theoretically any object could be used to prepare a piano, in practical application preparation objects are usually expected to have certain characteristics: They are applied directly to the piano strings.They must fit in the desired location inside the piano.They (usually) should not move from their location during playing.They must be reversible (that is, when a properly prepared piano has been "unprepared", it should be impossible for anyone to tell that it had ever been prepared; no permanent damage is done to the piano).

Additionally, most preparations will change the timbre of the string in such a way that the original pitch of the string will no longer be perceptible, though there are occasional exceptions to this.[1] Historical precedents[edit] Delage[edit] Cowell[edit] Villa-Lobos[edit] John Cage[edit] 8 Reasons Why Your Guitar Improvisation Does Not Sound Like Music. Free Download - 17 Essential Strum Patterns PDF You have practiced countless hours, you know your scale positions and fingerings like the back of your hand, you can play faster than all your friends. Yet, all the solos you improvise (or write) sound kind of stale, and not like “real music”. Why? Years ago when I was a beginner this problem was driving me crazy.

Some of the points that I will be making here are of purely technical nature, while others are on the emotional side of things. 1. The first reason is probably the most common among guitarists (and drummers). It is important to realize that the term “overplaying” has a relative meaning. The solution here is ridiculously simple: just play fewer notes! When overplaying the superfluous notes obscure the melody line. 2. Now that you have your foot firmly on the brake and not overplaying, you will start to notice that slow notes may not actually sound that good by themselves. 3. 4. As I am fond of saying, music is a team sport. 5. 6. Maciej Zieliński - Wikipedia. Maciej Zieliński - born in Warsaw on 29 March 1971, Polish composer. Selected works[edit] Musica per archi A.

Lady Gaga Details New Album 'Joanne' - Rolling Stone. Lady Gaga will release her new album, Joanne, October 21st via Streamline/Interscope.

Gaga called the album's title track "the true heart and soul of the record" and of the album as a whole added, "As I returned to my home life and spending time with my friends and family and getting out of the mainstream limelight for a minute, the experiences of our family and our challenges that make us who we are.

Skrillex Speaks Out Against Violence In America. Regardless of your opinion on government corruption, police brutality, racial sentiments, sexual orientation, or any of the many other divisive issues facing our country, you have to admit that it’s all getting rather bad.

It’s a scary time to live in the United States of America, and Skrillex has had enough of all the violence. Following the killing of Alton Sterling, Skrillex tweeted out his sentiments regarding the man’s wrongful death. His message of “no more death, no more fighting, no more killing” stands doubly true after last night’s Dallas sniper attacks on police. This marks one of the few times Skrillex has openly voiced his opinion regarding the state of affairs in America, and with the potential to influence such a large following, we’re glad he’s finally speaking up.

Lady Gaga of “American Horror Story: Hotel” and Jamie Lee Curtis of “Scream Queens” are arguably some of the most famous new faces on TV.

But fame isn’t all it’s cracked up to be — at least not for Curtis, who told Gaga during their conversation for the fourth season of Variety and PBS’ “Actors on Actors” series, that it’s “isolating.” Surprisingly, Gaga agreed with the veteran actress. “I don’t think I could think of a single thing that’s more isolating than being famous,” said Gaga. But as Curtis pointed out, they both sought out fame. Well, actually, they both sought out the “art,” and fame was a side effect. “It’s almost impossible for people even to probably look at my career and the things I’ve done and think, ‘Oh, she didn’t want [that] — of course she wanted to be famous, of course she wanted all that attention.’

It’s just, creative expression is what I am and I would’ve been doing this whether I became famous or not,” said Gaga. Challenge accepted, Curtis said. How to Write and Sell Your Songs. Edit Article Three Parts:Sample DocumentsWriting Ear-catching SongsNavigating the Music Industry Ever wonder why some songwriters get life-changing, rags-to-riches record deals while others with incredible talent and style seem to toil in obscurity? The crucial difference may be that one songwriter knows how to sell himself, while the other does not.

Even the most visionary musicians may go unnoticed if they're not able to "get their music out there". Adding to songwriters' difficulties is the fact that today’s songwriting environment is a highly creative, competitive, and over-saturated one.

Video It’s rare that you see a new thing, but here’s one: A trombone that shoots flames as it is being played. The idea was hatched and developed by University of Texas at Austin student Valentin Guerin, an exchange student from France.

He calls it the “pyro trombone,” according to Texas Exes. The invention isn’t just a novelty, either. The group is raising money on Kickstarter, and anyone who makes a tax-deductible donation will be treated to a concert just before the group heads off. “Due to decreased funding to education, nationwide, student travel budget funds have been cut drastically or, in our case, eliminated,” the group explained. Seems legit! List of musical works in unusual time signatures. Listed here are musical compositions or pieces in Western music that have unusual time signatures. "Unusual" is here defined to be any time signature other than simple time signatures with top numerals of 2, 3, or 4 and bottom numerals of 2, 4, or 8, and compound time signatures with top numerals of 6, 9, or 12 and bottom numerals 4, 8, or 16.[1] The conventions of musical notation typically allow for more than one written representation of a particular piece.

The chosen time signature largely depends upon musical context, personal taste of the composer or transcriber, and the graphic layout on the written page. Frequently, published editions were written in a specific time signature to visually signify the tempo for slow movements in symphonies, sonatas, and concerti. These examples are grouped by time signature, and listed alphabetically by title. ⅗/4[edit] Partially in ⅗4[edit] Mädchentotenlieder, by Bo Nilsson. ⅔/2 and ⅔/4[edit] Partially in ⅔2 or ⅔4[edit] ⅘/4[edit] Partially in ⅘4[edit]

10 "Masked" Musicians and Why They Hide. Several musicians have been known to take on an alternate persona as part of their art. David Bowie became Ziggy Stardust. Garth Brooks became Chris Gaines. Heck, Robert Zimmerman became Bob Dylan when he was trying to be Woody Guthrie. But other musicians have gone farther as to conceal their true identity by physically masking themselves whether it be with make-up or even an actual mask. Here’s a list of some of the biggest, the story of how they came to be and the reasons behind their facade. 1.

The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars. The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars (often shortened to Ziggy Stardust) is the fifth studio album by English musician David Bowie, which is loosely based on a story of a fictional rock star named Ziggy Stardust.[1] It peaked at No. 5 in the United Kingdom[2] and No. 75 in the United States on the Billboard Music Charts.[3] The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust... is about a bisexual alien rock superstar; the concept album sheds a light on the artificiality of rock music in general, discussing issues of politics, drug use, and sexual orientation.[7] Concept[edit] The album presents, albeit vaguely, the story of a rock and roll character called "Ziggy Stardust".[9] Ziggy is the human manifestation of an alien being who is attempting to present humanity with a message of hope in the last five years of its existence.

Ziggy Stardust represents the definitive rock star: sexually promiscuous, wild in drug intake but with a message, ultimately, of peace and love.
