Traversing the Fretboard: Utilizing the CAGED System in More Ways than One

English | 2017 | ASIN: B06Y26SRB8 | 147 Pages | 6.7 MB

Traversing the Fretboard is designed to help guitarists of all levels and styles of playing strengthen their understanding of how notes are organized across the fretboard. This method uses the CAGED System to build and demonstrate a connection between chord shapes and scale patterns. It also shows how the CAGED System can act as the foundation for forming seventh chords, finding and playing open and closed voicings, and discussing music theory. Along the way, there are many engaging musical examples (with free, downloadable audio tracks) from a variety of genres to offer a diverse application of the ideas discussed in each chapter. This book can help the beginner move beyond first position, offer new conceptual ideas to the seasoned guitarist, provide insight into improvisation and composition, help strengthen sight-reading and memorization, and connect guitarists to a wider range of musical styles.

Rebel Music Resistance Through Hip Hop and Punk

Rebel Music Resistance Through Hip Hop and Punk

English | 2015 | ISBN: 1623969093 | 193 Pages | PDF | 2.5 MB

Arising from the street corners and underground clubs, Rebel Music: Resistance through Hip Hop and Punk, challenges standardized schooling and argues for equity, peace, and justice. Rebel Music is an important, one-of-a-kind book that takes readers through fun, radical, educational chapters examining Hip Hop and Punk songs, with each section addressing a particular social issue. Rebel Music values the experiences found in both movements as cultural capital that is de-valued in the current oppressive, standard, test-driven, rule-bound, and corporate schooling experience, making youth “just another brick in the wall.” This collection is a “rebel yell” to administrators, teachers, parents, police, politicians, and counselors who demonize Hip Hop and Punk to listen up and respect youth culture. Finally, Rebel Music is a celebration of radical voices and an organizing tool for those who use music to challenge oppression.

Between Air and Electricity: Microphones and Loudspeakers as Musical Instruments

Between Air and Electricity: Microphones and Loudspeakers as Musical Instruments

English | 2017 | ISBN: 1501327607 | 217 Pages | 4 MB

Composers and sound artists have explored for decades how to transform microphones and loudspeakers from "inaudible" technology into genuinely new musical instruments. While the sound reproduction industry had claimed perfect high fidelity already at the beginning of the twentieth century, these artists found surprising ways of use - for instance tweaking microphones, swinging loudspeakers furiously around, ditching microphones in all kinds of vessels, or strapping loudspeakers to body parts of the audience. Between air and electricity traces their quest and sets forward a new theoretical framework, providing historic background on technological and artistic development, and diagrams of concert and performance set-ups. From popular noise musician Merzbow to minimalist classic Alvin Lucier, cult instrument inventor Hugh Davies, or contemporary visual artist Lynn Pook - they all aimed to make audible what was supposed to remain silent.
