Concert review

Extracts from this document...


The general term of the word 'Music' has define as an art of sound arrangements which exists within the sequences to produce various compositions with the used of the melody, harmony, rhythm, and timbre (Houghton Mifflin Company, 2003). On another hand, the terms of determining the genre of music are limitless. This is because it depends on the exposure of one towards various style of music through out his or her years and also the music background of a person. Hence, different people would have different thoughts and definition to determine the genre of music. As for my concert review, I have attended a local band performance for 'the AXN challenge' at One Utama, high street on 4th of April, 2009. There were two local bands that performed in this particular event and it was Estranged and Pop Shuvit. However, my main focus would be on Estranged and the genre that I would be examining is 'Rock'. The word 'Rock' was originated from the word 'Rock 'n' Roll' back in the year of 1954. 'Rock 'n' Roll' was actually an obvious reference to sex. Thus at the year of 1964, it was entitle again as the 'Rock Music' (infoplease.com, 2006). ...read more.


This content of the lyrics have refers towards how teenagers nowadays are mostly confuse, lost and misguidance upon what they wanted to become.

"Like a missing dead star found out of a tale weren't clearly told the demons last and lost their count and all the angels had to fall there's a line to find a key opens a door beyond believe it's making who we are to be the ones that take but never give..." There might be dozens of hidden meanings or there might be not, that lies within the lyrics which only can be uncovered by the band itself. Although that some lyrical content was hardly able to be understand or to be differenced, but the significances of having them here was how they manage to deliver and compact the content into the particular pieces. As I believe that the existence of music, songs or pieces was not created for mere pleasure, but instead behind every piece ...read more.


On top of that, Drummer Azwin Andy have shown during the performances have strongly offbeat drumming style which this is also a typical feature of black music making during the earlier styles(Kingman, 1998). As a conclusion, although the concert was rather short in length but it's very enjoyable indeed. As a musician my self, I have learn a lot by attending these concerts. This is because I was not just listening to the beauty of music, but yet I was able observed the use of various new styles with certain combination of the earlier styles. Besides that, by attending this concert I could also learn a thing or two about stage performances and what the interpretations to be done are during performances. As an old saying goes, to succeed in the future would be not to repeat the past and by learning along, improvement would be a definite. Reference List Kingman, Daniel.
