Steve Coal and Data’s and “The Brown Bag Series. ” Although two completely different music styles, they were both fun to attend and Interesting to think about when considering their musical elements. Steve Koki is an American electro house musician, record producer and founder of Dim Make Record. Data’s Is a Deputes DC and music producer from British Columbia, Canada. “The Brown Bag Series” was an instrumental concert consisting of six people, one being Professor Glove, who played instruments such as the cello, the double ass, and the piano.
Steve Koki and Data’s brought their tour “Teamed” to Buffalo on February 28th. Their Teamed tour played In over 40 cities across North America and started on January 19th. Koki was born on November 30, 1977 and by his early ass’s he built his own record label which he called Dim Make, named after his childhood hero Bruce Lee. He has been in multiple bands Including This Machine Kills, Separates, and The Fire Next Time. Steve Koki is an American electro house musician. Electric dance music was produced primarily for a clubs or environments centered upon dancing.
This music is created for the use of Dad’s, and is produced with the intention to create a continuous set, where the DC progresses from one record to the next, synchronizing each song. Electronic dance music Is a music genre that largely stems from the production methods of hip hop, disco, house, and techno music. This music was originally born in the nightclub scene in the sass, the warehouse party scene in the 1 sass, and the rave scene of the “acid house movement” in the sass. By the mid-19905, the presence of electronic dance music spread throughout the world and today Is one of the most popular forms of music there Is.
Electronic dance music Is constructed with electronic instruments such as synthesizers, drum machines, and sequencers. Each DC is deferent by making their sounds unique even when mimicking traditional songs. The first time I saw Steve Koki was in 2010 at Pasha Nightclub In New York City. I fell In love with him the moment he played his first song. “The Lion King Remix. ” One thing I love about Koki is how he takes regular songs, even songs from Disney movies, and makes them into his own. He is the definition of expect the unexpected. ” Some of Saki’s song have vocals, and some do not.
Koki recently started adding hip-hop vocals to some of his songs as well, with LLAMA, Kid Cud, Travis Barker, and Will. L. AM being a few examples. In one of Steve Saki’s most popular songs “Warp” with the Bloody Beetroots, he uses a Hoover sound. A Hoover sound refers to a particular synthesizer sound in electronic music. It is a complex waveform that can be created with three oscillators, each spaced an octave apart, with a heavy use of pulse-width modulation and a thick chorus effect. The musical ERM for the speed of a beat is tempo. The number of beats per minute in Steve different.
Another powerful tool in Saki’s music is an equalizer, as it is in any electro house musician. With an equalizer, you can make a huge difference how your mixes will sound. The kick drum seems to stand out a lot in Saki’s music, as do a few other instruments, one being the bass (which is Just as important as the kick drum). In Saki’s uplifting songs, he makes the lead synch stand out as well. Sound effects are also a huge aspect of electric dance music. Noise sweeps, explosions, synch twirls, ND so forth are very important in electronic music, and make it different than any other music there is.
Dadaist is a Deputes DC and music producer. Deputes is a genre of electronic dance music that originated in South London, United Kingdom. It draws on many influences such as reggae, techno, Jungle, and many more. My favorite form of deputes, and Dadaists style, is a dark, tetchy style. Deputes is music centered around bass, particularly the wobble bass. According to Maintain, “this style of bass is typically produced by using a low frequency oscillator to manipulate certain parameters of a Winchester such as volume, distortion or filter cutoff. Deputes music usually includes a variety of rhythms which are unexpected and make an off-beat tune or piece of music. A lot of the notes are often “shuffled notes” which mainly comes from jazz-influenced music, where they would be referred to as “swing. ” According to John Mellow, “a shuffle note is a practice in which some notes with equal written time values are performed with unequal durations, usually as alternating long and short. ” The tempo of deputes is almost always in the “range of 138-142 beats per minute, with a lap or snare usually inserted every third beat in a bar. ” House music is an upbeat and dance oriented style of music.
This concert consisted of non-stop dancing and everyone going wild. One big characteristic of electro house music is that it features a “drop” in every song or several times in a song. The music will be playing at a slow or medium speed and then all of the sudden the beat “drops” into a powerful, unpredictable beat. These drops come off really well in a live performance and usually make the crowed respond by dancing intensely. Electro house tracks usually range from 5 to 6 minutes in length with a radial build up beat which makes it easier to synch the current song with the next song.
The difference with electro house music and deputes compared to other music genres is that all the songs are already made. They are already on the Dos computer, all the DC has to do during a concert is mix the songs. The atmosphere of an electro house and deputes concert is usually like that of a rave. These concerts are known as the best parties around. Steve Koki is the one DC Vive seen that actually parties with the audience. At this concert he crowed surfed, sprayed the audience with homepage and orange Juice, and kept bringing people from the audience on stage. Steve Koki loves to have a good time and makes sure his audience does too.
Whether people like to admit it or not, one of the first influences of house music was disco. Even though disco was around for more than a decade before house evolved, it had reached its saturation point and was slowly declining. Towards the end, disco began to incorporate sounds produced with synthesizers and drum machines. Some compositions were even entirely electronic. This was where house music got its roots. But not only was disco an influence on house, so were disco Dos, Hess people include Walter Gibbons, Tom Milton, Jim Burgess, Larry Eleven, and many more.
House was first played at discos with African-Americans and Latino Americans in the Chicago area. After 1984, it spread to several other places such as New York, Toronto, Montreal, and Miami. Eventually, it moved onto Europe where it began to influence the local music scene as well. By the sass’s, house music was a huge part of the music scene everywhere. In the mid-sass’s fusion genres emerged, one being electro house. Electro House music is a relatively new genre of music that is taking the Electronic Dance Music world by storm.
Due to the fact that it combines many elements from other genres, it is considered to be one of the fastest growing genres of music. Today, electro house is still popular in many places such as Australia, Europe, and North America. Some of the most popular electro house Dos include David Guests, Demanded, Approach, and Steve Koki. One genre of electro house music is deputes, which originated in South East London. The UK has a much larger range of deputes artists than the U. S. And most other countries, but America has recently become intrigued with deputes and people have been hearing it a lot ore.
The sound of deputes originally came out of productions by II-B, Steve Gurgle, Iris Jay, and Zed Bias. Other influences of deputes include a genre called grime and a genre called drum n bass. Grime combines electronic elements with dark bass lines and drum n bass uses the wobble bass, which is a main element in deputes. Deputes is a broad genre; there are some artists who make almost their own genre of deputes, while there are others who gain popularity solely by their remixes of other deputes songs. Some popular deputes artists today include Shriller, Nero, Abstracter, Russo, and Dadaist.
The differences between electro house music and rock music are never-ending. For one, rock music is produced by people playing instruments and singing vocals. Electro house music is produced electronically, using a computer to pick each instrument and how you want each instrument to sound. Almost every element of electro house music is on the computer; your choice of what instruments you put in a song and what sounds you put in a song are what make your music unique. Electro house music is all about technique. This is what separates each DC from one another and makes them differentiate.
Whereas rock angers would create their own music and write their own lyrics, house music Dad’s take sounds and vocals and transform them to make them into songs. Some house music Dad’s have even taken rock songs and remixed them, or added their own twist to make them unique. Some example are “Sweet Child of Mine” remixed by House Daddies, “Don’t Stop Believing” remixed by Electro Squad, “Living on a Prayer” remixed by House Daddies, and “My Otherwise” remixed by Benny Beanies. These songs are just a few examples of the endless amounts of songs that take an original rock song and transform it into electro house music.
Today, people argue that house music has no message. Rock music was so much about lyrics and sending messages, and today the music of choice is Just sounds mixed together on a computer. Rock used to be the soundtrack of choice for teens, but today that has been replaced by house music. The second concert I attended was the “Brown Bag Series. ” This entirely instrumental concert consisted of five musicians, one being Professes Glove. Four played the cello, one played the piano, and one played the double bass. I have to say was almost disappointing when it ended.
This concert was a lot less formal than others. The audience was on stage, and there was a lot of talking done between pieces. It seemed as if Professor Glove was trying to make the audience feel comfortable and relaxed by talking to the them, and he made sure they knew what they were listening to. The way the concert was set up made the atmosphere more intimate, not only because the audience was on stage with the performers, but because they were very close together. There was no dancing in this concert and the mood was a very calm, peaceful one.
The first piece of music started off as a cello solo, with a second musician coming in a little later in the piece. The cello serves as both a melodic and bass instrument in chamber and orchestral music. The “Brown Bag Series” was chamber music, because it was performed by a small number of performers with one performer to a part. There were multiple solo’s and performer’s fading in and out of each piece. There was no more than four performers playing at a time. The second piece started with two performers playing the cello. The piece was written by one of the cellists who performed.
The piece began with a very fast introduction, which required extensive use of the forearm. The forearm motion is the cost efficient motion for fast passages because the cellist only needs to move part of the arm. Upper arm can be added with it but moving the entire arm would be impossible with fast separate bows. After the speedy introduction the second piece began to fade out to a calm, gentle, peaceful sound. The whole arm active motion is generally the best bow stroke used for slow to moderate playing. This is the motion that looks like the cellist is starting from the very top, and going to the very bottom of the cello.
I also noticed the musicians, particularly Professor Glove, use the whole arm motion but included in it a type of “swivel. ” For each long stroke Professor Glove made, he would also move his arm in a motion that seemed as if he was doing a circular motion as he was across the bridge. This made the performance overall, in my opinion, look even more professional. The pace in the second piece continued to switch from slow to fast with multiple duets throughout. It was a beautiful piece and you never knew what to expect next. The third piece was played by all four cellists. This piece was very slow once again using the whole arm motion.
The sounds were gig pitched, although not as high as the sound of a violin. The four piece was played by undergraduate Anthony Retired playing the double bass, and a pianist. The two instruments complemented each other beautifully, with the double bass going at a faster pace than the piano. The piano got very dramatic, and the bass got very fast and short as the piece continued. The piece continued with a slow piano solo, and then once again, the double bass came in. The rest of the piece was a slow, gentle, calm duet. It seemed as if the imagery for this piece was a man fighting for the girl he loved.
He kept trying and trying and she tried too, but most of the time it didn’t work and Just caused them both chaos. As the musical representation of the furious battle ended, the two Just laid together in silence thinking about their love. The double bass is the largest instrument in the strings family. The double bass performer used the acre technique throughout the piece. After the duet was over, Anthony Radial left the stage and the fifth piece started. The fifth piece was a piano solo that started very slow, and then got very fast going up to higher octaves.
All throughout the piece the he “Brown Bag Series” was a short section from a larger piece from the Russian composer Sofia Jubilating. The piece was very high-pitched and included techniques such pizzicato and slap bass. When the pizzicato technique was being used, the musician was striking the strings to produce sound. When the slap bass technique was being used, the musician was plucking or pulling the strings and releasing them. This technique creates notes that has an added “click to it. ” Overall, I thought “The Brown Bag Series” was a beautiful concert and all the musicians involved were very talented.
The genre of “The Brown Bag Series” was modern classical. Before the sass’s, rock and roll was in general considered a simple style that appealed almost only to teenagers. The Battles along with a few others than came along and showed that it could be something more. In the late sass’s, some rock artists started to explore folk styles; some moving toward country and others into Jazz and new electronic techniques. The rock style was cultivating. This was an exciting realization- that rock could be flexible and enhanced by relating to other music styles.
At first, the pursuit to combine rock music with classical music brought great criticism. The rock artists exploring this new style of art rock were risking Judgment and disapproval. These artists included the Moody Blues, Deep Purple, Procom Harm, The Who, and many more. These artists discovered genres such as classical rock, heavy metal, and even created music with a theatrical aspect, which was known as rock operas. In the sass’s, rock bands began performing with orchestras because that was one of the easiest ways to create a fusion of classical music and rock, according to Statues and Lipstick.
The Moody Blues used this approach in their album Days of Future Passed, n which the orchestra didn’t really interact with the group itself, but performed instrumental interludes between the band’s songs. Other approaches were taken by Deep Purple and Procom Harm, who incorporated the orchestral instruments more integrally and combined classical orchestration with their music. The art rock movement declined as the sass’s evolved, but it did not die. Today, there are still groups and artists that keep artistic rock alive. Although the two concerts I attended were two completely different music styles, they were both very enjoyable.
At Steve Koki and Dadaist, the music was mostly preset o all they had to do was spin. I was dancing all night and going crazy Jumping up and down to every song. At “The Brown Bag Series,” the musicians made their music live which showed how talented they were. The audience was on stage with the musicians which made the atmosphere a lot more intimate and peaceful. The music was very relaxing and the different instruments complemented each other beautifully. Music has changed so much over the past few decades and although it continues to do so, we will never forget its roots and where it all started. “deputes’ Music. ” Breakout Music.
