 I. Xenakis - Music Downloads - Online
Bio: In applying mathematical and physical laws to the composition of music, Iannis Xenakis exposed the implicit connections between science and art -- rooted in theories of statistical probability, his stochastic method revolutionized not only the composition of music but also its performance, exploring the boundaries of sound and space.
Xenakis' engineering studies and architectural work directly impacted his musical ideas (and vice versa) -- on the belief that composition develops outside of music, he built upon mathematical and philosophical principles to develop his stochastic theory (adapting the name from "stochos," the Greek word for "goal").
Xenakis broke further ground in his studies of spatial dynamics -- positioning musicians throughout an auditorium according to kinetic principles, he pursued a perfect sonic balance based upon the distribution of sound from a multitude of directions.

  Dynamics (music) Information
In music, dynamics refers to the volume or loudness of the sound or note.
One particularly noteworthy use of this dynamic is in the second movement of Joseph Haydn's Surprise Symphony.
The Renaissance composer Giovanni Gabrieli was one of the first to indicate dynamics in music notation, but dynamics were used sparingly by composers until the late 18th century.

 dynamics (music)
In music, markings added to show the varying degrees or changes in volume or loudness.
For example: dynamics for volume include f for forte (loud), mf for mezzo forte (medium loud), mp for mezzo piano (medium soft), and p for piano (soft); changes in volume include crescendo (becoming gradually louder), and diminuendo (becoming gradually softer); accents include sf for sforzando (meaning a sudden accent on a note or chord).
Dynamic expression developed slowly during the 18th century as improvements were made to instruments of the orchestra that increased their freedom of expression.

 Dynamics and Accents in Music
Sounds, including music, can be barely audible, or loud enough to hurt your ears, or anywhere in between.
Traditionally, dynamic markings are based on Italian words, although there is nothing wrong with simply writing things like "quietly" or "louder" in the music.
There are a few different types of written accents (see Figure 3), but, like dynamics, the proper way to perform a given accent also depends on the instrument playing it, as well as the style and period of the music.

 African Ritual Funeral Music (Dogon Culture: Three Snapshots)
The subject of African ritual music as applied to funeral celebrations and ritual burial is a complex subject that is consistent with the composite nature of African creativity.
This relationship mirrors the actual experience reality in African music in the sense that the working compositional materials of a given ceremony establishes a context of 'operatives' that serves to highlight the ritual backdrop of the occasion rather than the concept of structure as a fix sequence that must be exucuted in one way.
Musical language in African music is connected with the actual speaking language in a way where in many cases it is one and the same as the actual talking language´´.

I was drawn to this band because they have worked out the formula that this whole generation of music is trying to distill and funnel into an energetic, hard rockin' groove that's non stop and melodious as well.

 Digital music and subculture
It is very difficult to distinguish between music that is widely popular because a large audience appreciates it, and music that is popular because audiences have very few choices due to the flooding of radio and TV airwaves by a small number of successful artists.
While musical subcultures are generally best left alone for youth to determine themselves (seeing that this is likely an important part of the pleasure of pop music), administrative authority has limited application, except to introduce new things into the community.
As Scott argues, music becomes influential in production spheres through "a circle of auditors that is gradually widened" (outward, that is, from band to producer to record label to promoter to local audience to radio to distributor to TV channel to mass audience, with numerous intermediaries, negotiating trust and meaning, betwixt) [49].

Of course, music lovers know that this is patently false, and that the emotional content and drama of live music have little to do with the frequency extremes.
In its most benign implementation, as a two-way, the music is split apart between a woofer/midrange and a tweeter, typically in the octave from 2 to 4 kHz.
As a musical peak hits the tweeter, its distortion spectrum rises sharply, and in addition, it compresses the music’s dynamics.

Feelings cause people to compose music, and that's what the composer of a piece wrote the music for: because he or she felt a certain way or wanted to convey something.

 Iannis Xenakis - Music Downloads - Online
For over a decade Xenakis also worked with the renowned French architect Le Corbusier, most notably contributing to the design of the Philips Pavilion for the 1958 Brussels International Fair.
Xenakis explored the inner structural organization of composing, applying theories of statistical probability to discover the interrelationships between organized sound and music; with the advent of computer technology, he translated his findings into programs which created new compositional families.
Works including 1956's Pithoprakta and 1957's Diamorphoses launched Xenakis to the forefront of the avant-garde, and he continued pushing the envelope with subsequent pieces including 1958's Duel (a composition based on the principles of game theory) and 1962's Bohor (his first major electronic project).

Although most of today's electronic dance music and radio hits lack dynamic variety, the use of dynamics is a vital component of expressive performances in many musical genres.
Practically speaking, controlling dynamics on an electronic keyboard works much as it does with an acoustic piano: when the keys are struck quickly, the dynamic level is loud; when the keys are struck slowly, the dynamic level is soft.
Although all GM synth sounds respond to MIDI Velocity messages, sounds such as GM 9 (celesta) and GM 11 (music box) have a relatively narrow dynamic range that may be less apparent to the students.
