Arthur Kanai Economics, Period 3 Current Event Summary Piracy is an increasing problem. Every song ever made is on the net and free for download. Even movies before they're released. We all do it, we all download songs. Music industry has started to feel the heat. 15% decline in cd sales in the last two years. 6 the first, and 9 the last. 400,000- 600,000 movie swaps a day. If each movie is worth about 20 dollars, that's about 8 million - 12 million dollars a day. It's not only music, but it's movies, games, software, and television. People have started to get punished for piracy. Last month, students at Princeton, Michigan, and Rensaeler we sued by record exsecutives. They're seeking 150,000 dollars per song shared. Recently, a court has ordered Verizon to release the information of one of their costumers who has allegedly 600 songs. It started with napster, now it's things like kazaa. These programs have definitely gotten smarter. There is no central server to just shut them off anymore. It's great. Relation to economy. The effects of the increase in piracy has already been witnessed around the world. Asia is the hardest hit. In China, 90% of the media sold is pirated. The music industry has suffered a huge loss. They are no longer promoting new up and coming artists because it's not worth the money they will invest in endorsing the artist since 90%

Aspects of Films We made a list of aspects o films at the beginning of the year and we thought that it would be a good idea to look at these and think about what we will do for each of the 10 things Lighting When we are inside everything will be well lit with the overhead lights but when we are outside there will only be natural lighting. This way things will look more creepy and things are likely to look more real. It should have the same effect as it did in the film The Blair Witch Project. Editing When we are editing we want it mainly to be full of jump cuts because this is the type that is used when directors want to build pace Atmosphere Dark, creepy. Many shadows. Build suspense with music. Plot Female student has an affair with a male teacher and then things turn nasty when she tries to end it. Costume Kate: school uniform (white shirt and black trousers) Graham: smart clothes, lab coat for in school and a dark jacket for outside. Music/sound For the main part of the film we will extract the audio and just rely on the images and the music. There will be the two voiceovers from the main characters and one final blood curdling scream to end it. Camera movements In our film most of the footage will be either still or just panning. We think this because if we try something too ambitious then the film will turn out looking very amateur. We think that
Stevie Wonder has been a major figure within the Black Music scene over the last forty years. Stevie Wonder was born Steveland Judkins on May13, 1950, however, he now prefers to be known as Steveland Morris after his mother's married name. He was blind at birth. The cause was the prematurity of the eye. Blood vessels in the back of the eye hadn't reached the front of the eye thus when he was born, prematurely, that growth temporarily stopped then wildly took off branching out in the Vitreous of the eye. After his family moved to Detroit in 1954, Steveland joined a church choir, the gospel leanings on his music balanced by R & B. In 1961, Ronnie White of the Miracles, who arranged an audition at Motown Records, discovered him. Berry Gordy immediately signed Steveland to the label. Wonder was placed in the care of writer / producer Clarence Paul, who supervised his early recordings. In 1963, the release of the live recording 'Fingertips' made his commercial success, and Motown quickly marketed him on a series of albums as 'the 12-year-old genius' to try to link him with the popularity of 'the late genius', Ray Charles. Attempts to repeat the success of 'Fingertips' was difficult, and Wonder's career was placed on hold during 1964 while his voice was changing. From 1965-70, Stevie Wonder was marketed like the other big Motown stars, recording stuff that was chosen for him by
The Italian Job - Analyse the media devices of the opening scenes and car chase used in both Italian jobs and comment on their effectiveness.
Media coursework The Italian Job Analyse the media devices of the opening scenes and car chase used in both Italian jobs and comment on their effectiveness. Both films show an insight into technology; the modern version is more technologically advanced. All this is due to the availability of technology in the two eras. Donald Sutherland known as John Bridger in the later version of the film uses a mobile phone and whilst carrying out the mission the use of infer-red devices, laptops and other technology is also significantly used. In contrast to this the 1969 version Michael Cain gets the main idea from the slideshow left by Beckerman. Also whilst Seth Green hacks into the traffic network system in the 2003 version the tapes are manually switched in the previous edition. The technology element is effective because it uses equipment and gadgets, which you don't use during day-to-day life. As well as technology music played a great part in both films to create pace and excitement. In the modern Italian Job the music is composed and produced by John Powell. The rhythmic opening titles start with some thick European strings and as the scenes develop in to more tension the pace and the rhythm increases, the "car chase" is one example. It combines with sound effects to create an escalating feeling which enhances the film by making it more dramatic and exciting. The music in the
The Effect of George Gershwin on the 21st Century Singer, composer George Gershwin once said "True music must repeat the thought and inspirations of the people and the time. My people are Americans and my time is today." In today's society there are not many composers looked up to. Now everyone wants to learn about new rappers or legends in sports. To others, like pianist they look up to people like Bach, Beethoven, Mozart or new hip pianist like Alicia Keys. To some people George Gershwin is considered one of the few great pianists. When he emerged as a new composer he was unlike any other, this man was unique in all sorts of ways. He was unique for his sense of style and jazziness. Today, his music is rarely played, but when you hear it you just may know a song of his. On September 26, 1898, in Brooklyn New York, Morris and Rose Gershvin were surprised with a baby boy named Jacob "George" Gershwin (Gersh-vin). Rose and Morris were both Russian- Jewish immigrants that were from the middle class. Rose and Morris had their name changed from Gershowitz then to Gershwin because the immigrant official changed it upon their arrival. George was the second child out of four. At the very young age of eleven Morris and Rose bought a piano for George's brother Ira. To their surprise George was the child that could play by ear. 1 On the piano he played a piece that was
In this project, I aim to explore the different styles of popular music that have been successful from the 1960s to the present in Spain, why they have been popular, where they originated from, their history and what the music is actually like.
In this project, I aim to explore the different styles of popular music that have been successful from the 1960s to the present in Spain, why they have been popular, where they originated from, their history and what the music is actually like. To find out a type of music's origins, it is sometimes helpful to know where the country is to find out where influences could have come from, and even a certain amount about the country's history. So here is a map of Spain in context with part of its neighbouring countries. Many people have listened to the music included in this project, as it spans more than two generations. It has always been targeted at teenagers and young people, but, as is the case in many countries, it is being targeted at younger and younger people, so that now much of the music produced is targeted at 'tweenagers' or older children. The younger the target audience, the younger the band members or singers become, so much of the music produced now is sung or played by younger people than in the 1960s, where this project begins. Most older music (from 1960 to about 1985) was always played by professional musicians and singers, whilst much modern music has been sung by people who were singled out as having the potential to break through the charts not purely based on their singing or playing ability but also by the fact that they conform to a certain image which
A legendary act, MAYHEM need little introduction. There can only be one true original. Getting their start in 1984, Norway's MAYHEM is single-handedly responsible for creating and fostering the global Black Metal scene. MAYHEM's origins date back to the early part of the last decade in Norway, 1984. This was the classic era of Black Metal. Bands like Venom, Bathory and Hellhammer were on a crusade to desecrate the remnants of Christianity as well as the so-called musical extremes; MAYHEM joined this crusade. Two years later, in 1986, they released the "Pure Fucking Armageddon" demo, instantly joining the ranks of their forefathers, and unleashing a brutality yet unheard to the underground. A year later they would follow up with their second demo "Deathcrush", this demo was later rereleased as a 1000 limited edition MLP by Posercorpse Records, "Deathcrush", an album that was insulted by established press, while the ever-increasing underground, celebrated in its destructive intensity is a furious metal release, that catch the attention of all the underground scene.. Then came the era of Deathlike-Silence. MAYHEM, between 1987 and 1993 underwent several changes in their line-up. Most notably in 1991, when their quite unique vocalist, Dead, committed suicide because he felt he did not belong on this earth. The suicide was shrouded in mystery, and MAYHEM's musical direction grew

Personal and imaginative Coursework Hello I am Alex Paraskeva and over the next few pages of this essay I am going to explain my life story, or what I have lived of my relatively short life. It all started on the 18th June 1987, at approximately nine pm, I was born in Northwick park hospital in Harrow. From then on until the age of two I don't remember anything significant except for the first word I said was "lamppost," when I was young I know I loved Winnie the Pooh and was almost fanatical about the books, expecting my parents to read them to me every night. When I finally reached two years old I would say I probably had the most traumatic experience of my life, when my parents decided to get me baptised. It wouldn't have been such an ordeal if I was baptised Church of England or Roman Catholic, but they chose to make me Greek orthodox, where their idea of baptising someone is drowning them in the font. My first school was Edward Bethams where I met one of my best friends Sharif we used to always play at school, and were constantly in trouble for misbehaving, we both continued like this until year two when we were put into different classes and didn't really get to see much of one another. Whilst at school the thing I remember most clearly was running around playing with my friends, when suddenly an older boy and me had a head on collision and I received my first black

Choose one product or culture which is having a global impact (could be regarded as part of "globalization") Globalization is affecting the music industry more than many other industries and it is primarily induced by developments in Information Technology. This is because music evokes many personal feelings that satisfy human emotions. Music can be a tool for many things: relaxation, stimulation and communication. But at the same time it can also be a tool for resistance: against parents or feelings. This is why music is so prone to globalization; it is a part of everyone's life and in certain aspects a way of life for some people. One rising pop star that is influencing not only Asia but also Western countries is the Taiwanese singer Jay Chou. One of the 'Big Five' music corporations, Sony, has officially announced the joining of Jay joining their corporation. This is yet another step closer to Jay Chou becoming globalized. MTV further globalizes music and pop stars. Local musicians get a chance to be heard by overseas audiences when their music is played on MTV. "We have put local artists in the global music industry with events such as the MTV Asia Awards" says Kiki Rizki, Head of Marketing and Communication, MTV Indonesia. As MTV invades Southeast Asia, the faces are no longer just American singers such as Britney Spears or Backstreet Boys but also Indonesian,
