Kalinka: Traditional Russian Folk Song by Ivan Petrovich Larionov - sheet music arranged for piano by Jim Paterson "Kalinka" is a traditional Russian Folk Song, composed by Ivan Petrovich Larionov in 1860. The song became popular in Russia and throughout the world when it was performed by many Russian Choirs and used as an instrumental by Russian Dance Troups. Kalinka is the name of a tree, usually called the Snowball Tree of Snowberry Tree, which displays clumps of small white flowers in the Spring which turn to bunches of red berries later in the year.
Music The music collections at Cambridge University Library play an important role in the preservation of musical heritage, both on a national and international level. From printed and manuscript music scores and texts on music to ephemera and concert programmes, archival materials documenting the life and work of composers, music scholars and performers, a huge variety and breadth of material has been collected over several centuries. There are close links between music collections at the University Library and the Pendlebury Library of Music at the music faculty. Within the printed music collections a large section is devoted to music published in the British Isles, much of which has been received under the provisions of the various Copyright Acts since 1709. As a result the library holds, for example, an amazing collection of Victorian songs. The music manuscripts collections contain key works from various periods of music history.

English 50 Exercises for Story Writers English 50 – Intro to Creative Writing: Exercises for Story Writers Basic Theory: What is a short story? As soon as someone delivers a definition, some good writer will write a story that proves the theory wrong. About the only thing we can say for sure is that short stories are short and that they are written in what we call prose. Some attributes, however, seem to show up more often than not. HTG Explains: What Are the Differences Between All Those Audio Formats? Digital audio has been around a very long time so there’s bound to be a plethora of audio formats out there. Here are some of the more common ones, what differentiates them, and what to use them for. Before we talk about everyday audio formats, it’s important you understand the basics, and that means understanding PCM. After that, we’ll tackle compressed formats.

Songwriting and genealogy The best tool for understanding where music comes from is evolutionary biology. Songs don’t spontaneously spring into being any more than animals or plants do. They evolve, descending from reshuffled pieces of existing songs, the way our genes are shuffled together from our parents’ genes. The same way that all life has a single common ancestor, all human music has a shared origin in the calls of our primate forebears. You can trace the ancestry of music like you can trace the ancestry of a person Writing Exercises Meredith Sue Willis Author and Teacher More Free Writing Exercises below and here : Exercises 1- 20 Exercises 21- 40 Exercises 41 - 60 Exercises 61-80 Exercises 81-100 Exercises 101 - 120 Exercises 121 - 140 Exercises 141 - 160 Exercises 161 - 180 Exercises 181 - 200 Exercises 201 - 240 Exercises 241 - 260 Point-of-View Characters Whose Gender Is Not Yours We had a discussion in my Advanced Novel Writing Class at NYU about the difficulty of capturing a character who is of a different gender from yourself. Writing about people unlike yourself– by race, ethnic group, age, and certainly gender or sexual preference– is always a big challenge, but also of great interest to a creative writer.
What Is Distortion? We all know what distortion sounds like. We've heard it in heavy metal tunes, cheap iPod docks and the crummy speakers at Taco Bell drive-thrus. And we've all read distortion specs on things like receivers and subwoofers. But other than a general understanding that distortion isn't something we want in home audio gear, most people really don't know what it is. It dawned me the other day that not only do I hear a lot more distortion than most people ('cause as an audio reviewer I gotta crank stuff up to find its limits), I also see distortion. The recently developed CEA-2010 subwoofer measurement technique shows the effects of distortion on your computer screen as you're measuring it.
"Auld Lang Syne": what does it mean, why do we sing it on New Year's Eve, and what language is it? This New Year's Eve, it is almost inevitable that you will hear (and possibly try to sing) "Auld Lang Syne," a song whose melody is synonymous with the new year (and the theme of change more broadly) in the English-speaking world, despite nearly incomprehensible syntax and vocabulary. The problem is that the text on which the song is based isn't in English at all — it's 18th-century Scots, a similar but distinct language responsible for lyrics in the song such as "We twa hae run about the braes / and pou’d the gowans fine" that are utterly incomprehensible to Americans. But the story of how an 18th-century Scottish ballad became synonymous with the new year is tangled, involving both Calvinist theology's traditional aversion to Christmas and the uniquely central role that watching television plays in American New Year's celebrations. "Should old acquaintance be forgot?" is a rhetorical question
Music : Mathew Holmes lute books Dd.2.11 is the first and largest of the four Mathew Holmes lute books, copied probably 1588-1595. Nine music manuscripts in Cambridge University Library were shown by Ian Harwood in the 1960s to have been copied by Holmes who was Precentor and Singingman of Christ Church in Oxford from 1588 and then in Westminster Abbey in London from 1597 until his death in 1621. Four of the manuscripts, with the shelfmarks Dd.2.11, Dd.5.78.3, Dd.9.33 and Nn.6.36, form a chronological series largely devoted to tablature for the renaissance lute. The four comprise the most extensive and important source of English lute music to survive in the world, totalling over 650 separate items, some duplicated within or between manuscripts, crammed into all available space of more than 300 folios (600 pages) in total. Many lute solos in the Holmes manuscripts have titles with the names of dedicatees, including royalty, nobility, members of the merchant class, academics or actors from the London theatres. John H.
Reconstructing the structure of the world-wide music scene with Last.fm Reconstructing the structure of the world-wide music scene with Last.fm Inspired by the Internet mapping efforts of the Opte Project, I decided to investigate how does the network of musicians look like. Those ugly hairballs below are the results. Okay, they do not look as nice as the Internet maps, but the tree-like structure of the Internet must have helped a lot to create thosefancymaps. There's a menu up there. Check out the rest of this website if you are interested in technical details or if you want to waste a lot of time.
