ABOVE: One of the most popular and most controversial musical artists of the twentieth century, Michael Jackson sold millions of records and led an occasionally bizarre personal life that was the subject of much speculation. The style of the Burgundian composers, as the first generation of the Franco-Flemish school is known, was at first a reaction against the excessive complexity and mannered style of the late 14th century ars subtiliorand contained clear, singable melody and balanced polyphony in all voices. Bessie Smith, perhaps the most famous of the classic blues singers, epitomized the form's emotional power, while Ma Rainey 's singing captured its racy, theatrical side. Authenticity may simply represent snapshots in time. I wanted to make videos inspirational.

    In my choral compositions I have used cultural styles ranging from jazz, raga, bluegrass, gospel, Celtic, and salsa to Baroque. The published octavo, with extensive performance notes and historical information, is as close as I could get to an octavo representing authenticity. Every culture has a genre and Deaf culture is no exception. In the early s, Public Enemy, the original "prophets of rage," has been upstaged by "gangsta rappers," whose violent tales of gang murders and the gun trade are set against a backdrop of inner-city decay. An American rock group singing the same song in doo-wop style with its American words, "The Lion Sleeps Tonight," would be less authentic.

    The trumpeter and singer Louis Armstrong became the first jazz musician to achieve national and international recognition with the success of his "West End Blues" in the s. Third, & experience book of greatest significance for music history, notation was reinvented after a lapse of about five hundred years, though it would be several more centuries before a system of pitch and rhythm notation evolved having the precision and flexibility that modern musicians take for granted. In a world of many cultures, we need to fully respect each other's differences, not try to make everyone conform to our beliefs. In the early s, Public Enemy, the original "prophets of rage," has been upstaged by "gangsta rappers," whose violent tales of gang murders and the gun trade are set against a backdrop of inner-city decay. Maybe due to my involvement with it, I feel I have to either listen intently or tune it out.

One of the most pervasive holdovers from African music was an emphasis on rhythm and the use of complex polyrhythms still found in African music.One of the most important ethnomusicologists of the century, John Blacking achieved international recognition for his book, How Musical Is Man?
