A very nice fan video about the awesome song of Tool: Lateralus. It explains the structure of the song which appears to be based on the Fibonacci sequence:

Thank you for letting me know and trying. I don't want to sway the direction of the thread, but if you are interested you can type in commonsenselako in the youtube search or here is the link again http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HYlgoJcL5M0 I'm sorry Wheyleous, if the Iowa wasn't on January 3rd I wouldn't be making a big deal about it, but I will always answer the question of the thread first, to the best of my ability before I put in my link.

Is my one sentence really such an eyesore?

At this point, yeah.

It's not the monetary gain that's bad. Making money is fine.

I appreciate any new person coming here and I do not want to drive you off by any means, but as with every community, there is a set of rules we'd like to stick to, and that includes generally staying on topic and especially not making an unrelated post in a thread just to promote yourself.

I recommend starting a new thread so that you can receive more complete feedback on your videos.

Wow, the Keynesian forum was much more hospitable. They just kept giving me money hoping I'd go away. I understand every forum has their own standards and now that I understand this forum's standards, I will not post video links after I answer a question and rather will start a new thread. I will contribute to other threads and start my own thread later in the evening, when I get out of work, asking for creative advice and points I should make in my next video. I don't mean this sarcastically, but that is okay right? I will not post anything more on this thread and I appologize to Bert and Wheylous. O... and just to positively contribute to this thread one last time, I think Broadway showtunes are fantastic and I like bread. I'm just joking.

Yes, what you say is fine. No need to apologize. Just part of the path to settling into these forums.

@conza: Glad you liked them. I especially recommend that more people check out Tokimonsta. You can't go wrong when her beats are as great as her looks.

Listening to your mixtape right now, and  I suddenly realize I have to check out Neon Indians last release

Jargon, there's live footage of Dance of the Knights where the term "mad conductor" is actually fitting to the video.

Lately for me I've been getting more into Jay Munly and Slim Cessna's Auto Club (a band Munly also plays in).

Not really sure what to classify this, seems the terms "alt-country" and "Gothic Americana" get thrown around towards this.

Is that the Bedemon that later became Pentagram?

Anyway, for me, it's mostly bands like Kamelot, Lost Horizon, Virgin Steele, etc. Metal, especially of the power variant, though I also like other subgenres.

Not sure, never got much into Pentagram, but it's been a while since I listened to them.

Since the religion/god debate has been going on guess I'll post this. Probably the best Christian music I've ever heard. (The two members were formally in the stoner metal band Sleep.)

For classical music nerds:

Watch along the bottom of the video as the performance progresses. You will see the numbered themes tracked in each of the voices (each row corresponds to each of the Soprano, Alto, Tenor and Bass lines). First, Bach introduces a subject once in each voice with free counterpoint surrounding it. Then, he plays around with that subject, inverting it (symbolized by the black circled numbers in the music) and introducing it in "stretto" counterpoint (kind of a "staggered" counterpoint) with itself. After he introduces the second subject, he mixes it with the first subject in counterpoint. After he introduces the third subject, he again mixes it with the first and second subjects.

The final section has quite a bit of back-story as Bach (possibly intentionally) did not finish this Fugue. However, it was discovered that the main theme of the work to which this Fugue belongs (called "The Art of Fugue" though not named that by Bach himself) is a perfect match with the other three subjects in quadruple fugue counterpoint! This cannot have been an accident as the main theme appears in every Fugue in the Art of Fugue except this one and counterpoint themes don't just fit together by accident. So, the linked video is of a reconstructed version of the Contrapunctus XIV in all its glory. The most amazing part of this Fugue to me is the transcendent harmonic progressions in the final section where all four themes "permute" through all four voices. This is a work not only of transcendent beauty but of absolute technical mastery of the art of counterpoint (multiple, interacting "voices" or "melodies").

Read this if you're interested in more of the back-story.

Edited to add: For those who might be interested but are otherwise confused by the strange sound of the music, I'll give a brief background. Before the 16th century, most European music was either folk music or ecclesiastical music which was extremely formalized and consisted almost entirely of vocal chants. The chants were primarily male and they were all univocal - one voice. By the 16th century, there were polyphonic chants which consisted of more than one melody sung together, or the same melody sung against itself (rounds, like "Row Your Boat"). The art of writing two or more independent melodies which sound good independent of each other and sound good when sung together is called counterpoint or "note against note."

The art of writing good counterpoint lies in giving the listener cues by which to tell apart the lines, particularly when all lines are being performed by one instrument or by several instruments that sound the same. These cues primarily consist in the "shape" and rhythm of each line. When you listen to counterpoint music, imagine that you are hearing a choir of human voices and pick out an individual voice to follow. You may not be able to follow it for very long but you can just pick another voice and keep doing this. Multiple hearings of the piece will enhance your familiarity with it and your ability to pick out individual voices. As you become more adept at hearing the individual voices, try following the themes and then listening for where the themes are played against each other in counter-point. At this point, you will be able to hear two voice simultaneously, which is a bit like watching a movie with 3D glasses on, only for the ears.

@ Jargon,

King Crimson has some great songs. Really love "21st century schizoid man" ;)

 

 

To a different song, a song that fits the time we live in. Unfortunately I had to upload it myself.. First I wanted to write a review myself too, but I am completely unable to do that right so why not use an already very good written review:

“I guess, the name Erik Larson is unknown to most of the readers. Larson played drums for Avail from '91-'99, and he was the singer-drummer of the Sludgecore band Kilara. Apart of it, he's the driving guitar force behind Alabama Thunderpussy and with "The Resounding" he had done his first solo album. I'm really positiv surprised about the twelve songs, that are only reminding me a bit to ATP. A few of the tracks were written five years ago. The lyrics of the album are recommandable, too. The next surprise is, that Larson has played nearly all instruments on the complete album, only Sam Krivanec plays the bass and Kachina Oxendine has taken over a few vocal-parts, as in the beautiful and un-cheesy lovesong "Hardest Thing to Write About" (that's true!). But also Erik Larson's voice fits excellent to the songs, and he succeeded in creating an organic sounding album, where you really got the impression a complete band is playing the songs.

It's not easy to pick out single songs, because the album functions as an entire unit and there aren't any fillers. But if you need some tips, I recommend the powerful bluesy "Our Voice", that starts quiet and than simply explodes. Great! Then there's the excellent groovy "Rede" with its Skynyrd-influences or "Make It", an atmospheric melancholic acoustic Folk-ballad, or the outstanding "Happy New War", with its critical lyrics about the actual US foreign policy, and that's not a matter of course for US musicians in this times. Other personal tips are the hard rockin' "Burning Fast" or "I Feel like Ted Nugent" (hahaha....!), with its Detroit vibe. Ok, to sum it up:"The Resounding" is a damn fine varied album, which pleases me more than the last two CD's of ATP. Here you can listen to passionate heavy melodic Rock songs, but there's also something for your heart. Absolutely recommandable, so go and buy it! "The Resounding" has been released in March 2003 on Small Stone Records, so visit their homepage and place your order.

(KK)”
