What is music?

Music has been around a long time in our history, from million years ago till where we are now. In that long time music changed much. We don’t know a lot about music from million years ago, and maybe you didn’t expect that. Here’s why: With the technology of nowadays we can record the music and listen it almost everywhere. Many people have internet and can use YouTube or Spotify or other music platforms. A long time ago they didn’t have microphones and speakers and certainly no internet. So music couldn’t be saved or being recorded. Sometimes they used musical notes and wrote it down on paper. The only folk that we know music from nowadays that didn’t write it down are the Africans. For them it’s traditional and they all know how their music sounds. They usually use drums and that type of instruments. The biggest part of the world that makes music nowadays records it and posts it almost always on the internet. Also older music can be found on internet. Music from the 90’s or 60’s or what else, if it’s recorded, you can post it on internet. People listen to music because it’s fun, they say it give you the same feeling as reading a book.

You should know that you have a song for every country; we call them national anthems.

It’s in there because it finish the movie. If you ever watch a horror movie, and you hear the creepy music, play it back and watch it again without the music. You should notice the difference. The first time it’s creepy, the second time it’s only a scary screen. Or in a romantic scene, if there isn’t romantic music, you only see two people in love but you don’t want to watch because it isn’t as beautiful as it was with music. The point is, music gives you the feeling in a movie, or if you are only listening to it it gives you only a feeling. But there are many types of movies so there are many types of music!
