  Bar (music) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In music with a regular meter, bars represent a periodic pulse in the music.
In music employing mixed meters, barlines are instead used to indicate the beginning of rhythmic note groups, but this is subject to wide variation: some composers use dashed barlines, others (including Hugo Distler) have placed barlines at different places in the different parts to indicate varied groupings from part to part.
Hypermeasures must be larger than a notated bar, perceived as a unit, consist of a pattern of strong and weak beats, and along with adjacent hypermeasures, which must be of the same length, create a sense of hypermeter.

 Disco Music Was Gay Music
We generally called the music we heard at the P.S. "bar music." It was often hard to find albums or records of this style of music at first, and even throughout the 70s trips to Minneapolis or Chicago might nab a record before it was popular or at least available in Iowa.
Disco music was for dancing, disco was for having a good time, and gay people, who had been prevented from dancing together in virtually all the bars across the United States until the very late years of the 1960s (or in some cases in the 1970s), embraced it and were liberated by it.
The woman working at the bar came over to us and said she "was from San Juan and it was a city and they had gay people and she knew gay people and it was fine for her, and for the owner too, but Ames wasn't so liberal," or some similar hogwash.

 Metroactive Music | Buddha Bar - Six Degrees
The Buddha Bar in Paris has emerged as one of the landmarks of the global musical bazaar that is contemporary electronica, particularly the growing chill-out scene comprised of mostly relaxing music that provides a backdrop for cocktails and conversation.
The Buddha Bar, an ultrahip nightspot created out of a vast warehouse, is to the vibrant Parisian world-music community what Studio 54 was to New York's disco world: a stylish cocktail, dinner, and dance palace, this one replete with carefully crafted soundscapes and dominated by a majestic 20-foot-tall golden Buddha.
With the release of Buddha Bar IV, the latest multidisc collection of studio-tweaked tunes from resident producer and arranger David Visan (the child of a Romanian father and a Vietnamese mother), the Buddha Bar builds on its reputation as a brand name while simultaneously underscoring the strengths and weaknesses of this music.

 The Basics of Reading Music - By Kevin Meixner

 Music.com ||| Bar Band   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
That sort of music was the primary influence for the bar band style, a genial brand of rock and roll equally suited to dancing, drinking, partying, or just hanging out.
Bar bands drew mostly from early rock and roll and RandB (particularly Chuck Berry and Little Richard), but also from other artists who'd reinterpreted and updated those sounds, like the Rolling Stones, the Faces, Bruce Springsteen, and Bob Seger.
Bar bands reached their greatest popularity in the '80s, when the similar Heartland rock and roots rock styles were at their peak, and when groups like Huey Lewis and the News and the Georgia Satellites scored major hit singles.

 Abraham bar Hiyya Ha-Nasi - Education - Information - Educational Resources - Encyclopedia - Music
Abraham bar Hiyya Ha-Nasi (1070 - 1136) was a Spanish Jewish mathematician and astronomer, also known as Savasorda (from the Arabic Sâhib as-Shurta).
Bar Hiyya wrote several scientific works in the fields of astronomy, mathematics, land surveying and calendar calculations, as well as two religious works, Hegyon ha-Nefesh on repentance and Megillat ha-Megalleh on redemption.
Bar Hiyya wrote all his works in Hebrew, not in Judaeo-Arabic of the earlier Jewish scientific literature, which makes him a pioneer in the use of the Hebrew language for scientific purposes.
