  • Differences and Universals in Music Across Cultures; An Evaluation Guide for Missionaries

    Christian Post ^ | 07/17/2018 | Scott Aniol
    A missionary cannot properly evaluate the differences among cultural expressions until he has understood their universals.At the root of the most thoughtful defenses of contemporary worship today is an appeal based on a missions philosophy that stresses indigenous ministry. If, as the International Missionary Council asserted as far back 1938, an indigenous church is one that "spontaneously uses forms of thought and modes of action natural and familiar in its own environment," then it makes sense that a church use those music forms that are most common in its culture. A pastor or a missionary should not expect a church...

    Dear Diary: On Saturday mornings when my windows are open, I sometimes hear a trumpet player practicing as I’m waking up. The silvery tones ring through several courtyards on my block. I cannot pinpoint the source. The musician is clearly a professional. Scales fly up and down, one impeccable glissando at a time, pausing briefly before climbing to the next half-step. One day, at the top of an octave, the mystery trumpeter added an unexpected flourish… [snip]

    Secretary of State Mike Pompeo reportedly brought a CD with the Elton John song “Rocket Man” to give as a gift to North Korean leader Kim Jong Un during his visit to the country. Pompeo arrived in North Korea on Friday amid talks between the two countries over denuclearizing North Korea. Pompeo brought two gifts for Kim, including a letter from President Trump and the CD, according to The Chosun Ilbo, a top newspaper in South Korea. Last year, amid escalating rhetoric between the two countries, Trump repeatedly referred to Kim as “Rocket Man” and “Little Rocket Man.” A diplomatic...

  • Historic Springfield manufacturer to ramp up hiring (10 jobs in Ohio)

    The Springfield News-Sun ^ | July 3, 2018 | Matt Sanctis
    O.S. Kelly, a historic Springfield firm that produces piano plates for Steinway and Sons, is ramping up hiring for the first time in years as Steinway looks to shift some work here to free up space at its own facilities. Since the 1930s, workers at O.S. Kelly have produced cast-iron plates that are a key to the pianos Steinway and Sons produce in Long Island, N.Y. and Hamburg, Germany. The plates, which can weigh up to 350 pounds, tie together the guts of the pianos said Rob Hill, plant manager at Kelly. The plates demand a high level of precision,...
  • The "Millennial Whoop" is taking over pop music (including country music)

    07/03/2018 11:00:42 AM PDT · by SamAdams76 · 141 replies
    I don't listen to too much pop music these days but when I do, almost every song has a certain element in it - which is being termed the "Millennial Whoop." I guess I could try to be the sophisticated musician and describe to you transitions between the fifth and third notes of a major scale and what not but I won't even try. The Millennial Whoop is basically putting a lot of "Wa-oh, wa-oh's" in just about every hit song. But don't take my word for it.

    Chicago Tribune ^ | June 21st, 2018 | Randy Blaser
    I have a theory about rock ’n’ roll bands that I haven’t really expressed to many people, but I will offer it here. I think any rock ’n’ roll band that wants to consider itself serious needs to be able to competently perform a certain set of standard rock songs. If they can’t play these songs, they should just stop the music and get day jobs. I’m talking about classic songs that are basic to the genre. Let me explain. Dan Aykroyd and John Belushi were not blues musicians. However, they knew enough about music to know any band worth...

    In case you needed another reason to feel far older than you actually are, a new survey by music streaming platform Deezer, via NME, suggests that by the time you hit 30, you reach something called “musical paralysis.” That means 30-year-olds have hit the threshold when they no longer seek out new music, or are open to listening to something new and beyond their established taste.... Survey participants gave various reasons for just why they’ve checked out of the music scene, mostly citing having children and too demanding a job to keep up with what’s new. A considerable 65 per...
