  • the future of music

    25 Jul 2008, 23:37 by bubblegirl_82

    After a quick reading of March's edition of Rolling Stones Magazine, I discovered a special titled "The future of music". I already posted some stuff about this on my blog, and the point of this journal is not to translate or repeat the same stuff. I only want to ask people what they think the future of music is, if any.

    Just a quick summary:

    The article mentioned above asked the musicians, among other things, what was their take on the influece that technology has on music these days. The general opinion was that sadly, computes and iPods are damaging the quality of music. formats such as mp3 reduce greatly the potential of most songs, making them flat and tiresome to hear. Not even CDs were spared the critisism; aparently the producers now change the intensity of each track to prepare them for an eventual convertion to mp3, so their quality is pretty much screwed from the beginning.

    About the increase of artist without labels on the web, and the tools to make music from home without having to go to a recording studio, some of them weren't exactly thrilled. Among 6 million shitty songs, it's luck to find one that doesn't suck; many talentless people think of themselves as artists just because they can put two notes on a synthetizer and upload it to MySpace. (opinion of James Murphy, producer and singer of LCD Soundsystem)

    Well, that's what some of them had to say. The future of music to the musicians that were interviewed implied a poor music quality in every sense, the destruction of mayor label companies and a dismiss for real instruments, because people can imitate almost all of them on a computer.

    My opinion on all that... I think music, as everything else, has cycles. and quality will eventually impose itself over the possibility to stuff 1'000.000 songs in a portable device.
    It's great to have the option to make music from your house and be able to distribute it and promote yourself on the web; it's up to the audience to download it, play it an eventually buy it. I would love to see the come back of REAL music stores, but being realistic is far easier to click on a link and get an album instead of actually go to one. I still do that whenever I can.

    Anyway, back to the question. What comes next for music? Is there even a future???

  • Joe Arroyo - Yamulemau | Info about the origins of this song

    16 Mar 2008, 05:07 by ViDLuv

    A wonderful recap of the origins of this song comes from Wolfgang Martin Stroh, professor emiritus at the University of Oldenburg, Germany:

    Joe Arroyo y la Verdad "Yamulemau"

    In 1971, when he was only 16 years old, Joe Arroyo began singing in Fruko y sus Tesos, the most important band of the time. The happy vibrancy of his voice and the mischievousness of his movements soon made him famous, and he recorded and performed with other popular bands. He finally started his own band, La Verdad (The Truth), in 1981. With his own orchestra, Joe Arroyo could now give free reign to his creativity as an arranger, singer-songwriter and composer.

    Arroyo is a versatile singer of many Caribbean rhythms and sings music ranging from es and s to the s ands of his native region. A native of Cartagena, he was exposed to and inspired by and music from a very young age, and he regularly invents new rhythms and styles with roots in these traditions.

    "Yamulemau" was originally recorded as "Diamoule" by Laba Sosseh, a singer from the West African country Gambia. An interesting example of cultural interaction between Africa and the Americas, Sosseh was first inspired by popular music and salsa. Arroyo sings "Yamulemau" in the original African language, imitating the phonetics much the same way African artists like Sosseh have done with Spanish.

    Una breve traducción:

    Yamulemau fue grabada originalmente como Diamoule por Laba Sosseh, un cantador de el país de Gambia. Un ejemplo interesante de la interacción cultural entre Africa y las Americas, Sosseh fue inspirado primero por música popular cubana y la salsa. Arroyo canta Yamulemau en su idioma Africano original, imitando las foneticas en la misma manera que artistas africanos como Sosseh an hecho con el Español...

  • ¿Rammstein, Marylin Manson o la metalica?

    14 Feb 2008, 19:28 by Conde_Maquina

    Lo más probable, es que durante el tiempo en que la algunos de nosotros hemos estado escuchando nuestra música, la gente tiende a generalizar todo ó a buscar lo más parecido dentro de su ignorancia :P
    Por ejemplo, en mi caso; han comparado bandas como Front Line Assembly, The Prodigy, Das ich, Feindflug, entre otras con Rammstein. Ojalá al menos pronunciaran adecuadamente Rammstein, pero dicen rastaín, rastán o rastein >_<
    O por que no el típico comentario de "¿Qué es eso? ¿Marylin Manson? ¿Música metalica? ¿Satanismo? ¿Buya?"
    Creo que he escuchado el termino de música metalica, inclusive más que la banda... :D
    Pero la gente quiere que uno no se moleste por su ignoranica intensiva, pero hay dónde uno hable mal de sus gustos populares!
