    A History Of Led Zeppelin

    1523 words, 7 pages

    Was it only twenty-three years ago? It seems like a lifetime, or two, has passed since that May night in 1975 when Led Zeppelin, a heavy metal, innovative band of Englishmen, clouded the Fall of Saigon by performing one of the few acts more monumental – in those faraway times - than the Communist victory in the Vietnam War. Three months following the debut of Zeppelin’s double-album, Physical Graffiti, the four powerful musicians instinctively blew the roof off the Earls Court Arena in West London, and, for the better part of two hours, strutted across the incandescent stage, demonstrating t

    Life And Legends Of Robert Johnson

    2802 words, 12 pages

    Legends are what surround the life of Robert Johnson. Little is really known about him expect that he was one of the biggest influences in blues which becomes a foundation for rock and roll today. I remember we were in class and just talked about Johnson in passes saying how he was the guy that the legend of the devil at the crossroads, hellhounds and the like was about. How he dropped off the face of the map for a few months, as some recall, and came back able to play like well he had sold his soul. But sitting there and really listening to Johnson, I wondered what truly inspired him. Johnson

    The Day The Music Died

    “American Pie” performed by singer/songwriter Don McLean influenced me to write my paper on the three musicians this song is about, Buddy Holly, Richie Valens, and J.P. Richardson “The Big Bopper”. I used to listen to this song when I was in high school at a local deli. We would all play this song on the juke box, not ever knowing the meaning of this catchy tune, until now. I also was raised on music of this era. Don McLean recorded his first album in 1969, “Tapestry” which was not a success. His luck turned around when he recorded his second album “American Pie” that ended u

Title - "Mood Indigo" Artist - Duke Ellington & His Orchestra Composer - Billy Strayhorn Musical Traits - The beat that the instruments play is what the song actually gets it's title from. Indigo, being another word for blue, is something of a sad, sobbing feeling. The notes the piano, saxophone, and trumpets play give off a "blue/indigo" or sad vibe, creating a blue mood to the song. Topic of Lyrics - There aren't any lyrics, just an instrumental song played by Duke and his band. Genre/Style - The style of mus

    John Mayer’s Battle Studies Album Analysis Paper

    1263 words, 6 pages

    John Mayer’s Battle Studies album was released in 2009. Consisting of some of his lesser-known musical pieces, the album is a collection of smooth soft rock grooves. Though certain tracks pick up in tempo every so slightly, the album is never very fast paced at any point. John Mayer being a solo artist means that he will always have the vocal melody. The instrumental melody more times than not is played out by the guitar, whether it be acoustic or electric. The melody’s range, both vocal and instrumental, stays within the same alto/tenor realm almost all the way through

    1070 words, 5 pages

    A wave is a disturbance that moves through a material medium. A transverse wave is no one wherein the particles of the medium vibrate perpendicularly across the direction of the wave motion. Theoretically, it maybe assumed that the waves originating from the same source are identical to each other as they move. Waves decrease in their intensity and magnitudes as they move through the mediums. The frequency of the wave is the number of waves or vibrations that pass through any fixed point per second. The transverse waves produced in a vibrating string or cord as they are reflected from the end

    The harmonica, also called harp, French harp, blues harp, and mouth organ, is a free reed wind instrument used primarily in blues and American folk music, jazz, country music, and rock and roll.

    The Different Faces Of Bob Dylan

    1497 words, 6 pages

    Bob Dylan is of a very rare breed of musician that one does not necessarily see anymore in the music industry. Dylan, in my opinion, was an artist that truly loved the music, truly loved success, and truly did not care what anyone thought about those two things mixing. Music was Dylan’s passion, but at the same time it was also very much a business. Dylan changed his style and genre many times throughout his career for an array of different reasons many of which are unknown to anyone besides himself. Either way, it is very interesting to look at some of the different musical styles that on

    Beethoven's First Symphony In C Major Analysis

    1784 words, 8 pages

    Beethoven's First Symphony in C major marks the first of his collection of nine symphonies, and although it was only his first work in this genre, the compositional techniques used by Beethoven are anything but juvenile. Throughout the course of the first movement of his Symphony No. 1 in C major, Beethoven adventurously explores multiple tonal areas while managing to maintain a sense of motivic unity in the movement. In addition to tracking the different key areas of the piece, this paper will also track two decidedly important motives from both the first and second tonal areas of the piece.

How do they compare with the traditional definitions? Do you find them useful, and why? Answer: Throughput is the rate at which the system generates money through sales.
