The Greatest Discovery of humans Music


“Words in the form of lyrics steers drunken imagination of people aligning it to the wavelength of the lyricists or at least tries to align however, nevertheless various interpretations can be made by different minds or for that matter same mind at different time depending upon the state of the mind of an individual or group. Lyrics create a partnership with music in order to define the depths of the emotion”

What drives us to listen to what we do? Scientists have little knowledge as to why music makes us feel the way we do, but maybe for once something doesn't need to have any scientist show how something works. It's just music. Nothing special or analytical, just music.This entire concept has been around so long that it had to evolve at some point, and it did. It still is.

There is music playing in the background of every scene, we often fail to notice it, however. In many different cultures, every event or tradition, music is the center of revolution in these events.
Every person has their own taste of music, as does every culture. For example, in Mexico, their music holds a common trend of horn instrumentals. It has a very distinct sound that is very identifiable. In many different cultures, every event or tradition, music is the center of revolution in these events.
Traditions go away, and new ones are created, and it's the same thing with music. Tradition, habit, and culture bind us, but music binds common human minds in their darkest times. Music speaks a different language, and everyone understands it in different ways based on their state of mind and stages of life.

There are plenty of genres that existed in the past that don't exist anymore, or have changed and evolved to create new genres.

Progression and change of genres

Musician W.C. Handy Heard Blues in a Train Station Growing from African traditions and spirituals. At this time blues musicians were not yet well-known, He went on to publicize this genre, and bring recordings of blues music to the public. Beginning of Country Music (1920s) Country music has its origins in the songs of the Appalachian Mountains, but by the early 1920s, it was developing into a new musical genre, popular in the Southern states. First Folk Blues Record The first folk blues record was recorded in 1923. Folk blues drew on African experience,music and spirituals, and eventually proved influential later in musical genres.

Big Band Swing Music (1930s) By the 1930s, jazz had led to the birth of a new genre, big band swing music. These were large bands, producing lively dance music.
Scott Joplin's "Maple Time Rag" Began Ragtime Orchestral music remained popular, but in 1899, Scott Joplin started releasing new music, including his "Maple Time Rag". This began the genre of ragtime, known for its syncopated, ragged rhythm.
Beginning of R&B (1940s) Rhythm & Blues or R&B began in the 1940s,relying on the sounds of blues music. R&B was marketed primarily to African-Americans and was characterized by a strong beat, with influences from more traditional blues music.
Beginning of Rock Music (Early 1950s) Rock music began in the early 1950s, relying on various musical genres, including blues,jazz and gospel, as well as country music. By the mid- to late-1950s, this music was largely guitar driven, and eventually fueled a growing youth culture.

Contemporary Folk Music (1960s)The mid-1960s saw the revival of folk music,integrating various musical traditions from around the world. This was not the first revival, but is the one most closely associated with modern music.

Beginning of Punk Rock (1974 to 1976) By the 1970s, rock music wasn't rebellion enough, and punk rock developed. Punkmusic used limited instrumentation, harsh sound, and shorter songs. Lyrics were typically anti-establishment. Genres can be picked and torn down to a science. Sometimes all it takes is one person to have one idea. Then other musicians interperate the idea and create music of their own.

Gospel was pretty much created by Rev Thomas A Dorsey. Georgia Tom, Dorsey played jazz and blues piano before the bible inspired her in 1932. She began selling songs such as Precious Lord, Take My Hand to churches in Chicago. Similarly, bluegrass originates from the name of the country singer-mandolinist Bill Monroe's band from 1938 to his death in 1996 the Blue Grass Boys. They were named after Monroe's native Kentucky, "the Blue Grass State".

Glitter rock – a synonym for glam – comes from Gary Glitter, about which the less said, the better. Free jazz comes from Ornette Coleman's 1960 album of the same name; ditto blue-eyed soul, from the Righteous Brothers' 1963.

Sometimes lyrics become genres. Doo-wop is a prime example. Bronx DJ Lovebug Starski claims to have coined the term hip-hop by rhyming "hip-hop, hippie to the hippy hop-bop" An artist can just say something is something, and that is that. Often music genres are named after the work of other artists that create common patterns. For example: the Riot grrrl is the name of a 1991 genre put together by four of that music's key players: Allison Wolfe and Molly Neuman of Bratmobile; Kathleen Hanna and Tobi Vail of Bikini Kill.

The evolution of technology can often create the evolution of music. Before auto tuned, singers sang live and they had to have a decent voice to make it. Frank sinatra took at least 30 takes on every song, and recorded with a full band and an audience

Queen used the layering of different voice octaves to create an opera-like sound they created a rock opera genre. People have been able to use technology to make their music unique, or not so unique.

Autotune: it has the ability to adjust pitches and alter the tune of your voice, it can add vibrato to someone’s voice, if you cannot sing it is not a good tool to use.

Michael Jackson on MTV (1983) This broke the color barrier of music to the small screen and created the trail for video innovation when Beat It, an ode to West Side Story, premiered in March. Zombie-themed Thriller followed in December. Smells Like Teen Spirit(1991) Nirvana’s punk anthem brought alternative rock to the surface and shook the grunge movement of Seattle bands from Soundgarden to Pearl Jam, rock’s counteroffensive to big-hair metal. Kurt Cobain’s 1994 suicide created a Gen X.
iPods and iTunes (2001) Technology allowed playlists buyers cherry-picked vast online reservoirs and listened in isolation. The CD (1983) The compact disc entered the marketplace, giving birth to music’s digital revolution. It overtook vinyl in 1988 and cassettes in 1992. American Idol(2002) Spitting out songbirds like Kelly Clarkson and Carrie Underwood, the ente rtaining show is a rare phenomenon in pop culture’s restrictive conformity.
Wood$tock (1999) After a successful revival in 1994, a less humane attempt in Rome, N.Y., ended in fires and looting by fans inflamed over high prices and poor sanitation. Rock and Roll Hall of Fame (1995) A teen fad finally got a permanent home in I.M. Pei’s bold tower and glass pyramid in Cleveland, a symbol of its enduring place in the culture.

“Music doesn’t lie. If there is something to be changed in this world, then it can only happen through music.” -Jimi Hendrix

Something noticeable about music is that it has never discriminated. Women always sang, black people always sang, people of different ethnicities, sexualities, and religions were never restricted in their ability to expand in the world of music. Music has broken many barriers throughout history.

There's a world of music out there; go check it out.
