Bell Ringer #2 • What are the three factors that have contributed to the evolution and change of music from the past, into what it is today? • Briefly describe one of them
Rock Music • After WWII, southern African Americans migrated to northern cities bringing a new musical influence to urban culture • This turned into the Rhythm and Blues music of B.B. King and other similar musicians • “Rock and Roll” fully emerged in 1955 with Bill Haley’s recording of “Rock Around the Clock” • During the 1960s, this early style of Rock and Roll became increasingly electrified and amplified. • Today, Rock music is very mainstreamed and some say that (today’s) rock in the 21st century sounds much as it has in previous decades.
Rock Music • Instruments- guitar, bass, drums, vocals • Musicians – Top 10 of 21st century- Muse, My Chemical Romance, The White Stripes, Linkin Park, The Killers, Fall Out Boy, Queens of the Stone Age, Maroon 5, Coldplay, System of a Down
Rap and Hip Hop Music • Rap evolved from many different music genres: • Gospel, jazz, blues, salsa, electro rock, pop, and Caribbean • With that mixture, urban African American youth invented their own music • Originally, rap gave a voice to disenfranchised youth • Some rap lyrics have been seen as obscene, bigoted, and socially irresponsible • This is not always true it has lyrics that address hard realities of life, and personal and social messages
Beginning of Rap • One early DJ, “KoolHerc,” came to America from Jamaica, where spinning records was a highly developed art. • KoolHerc often used to record players and two versions of the same record to “loop” short sections and create break beats. • Break beats occur when other instruments in the band stop playing while drums and bass play alone. • These break beats would loop one section over and over, would be played on two different turn tables • These extended break beats became very popular and eventually became the foundations of rhyming and “rapping.”
Rap and Hip Hop Music • Instruments- keyboards, drums and drum machines, synthesizers (to loop music), computers, turntables, vocals • Musicians- 50 cent, Drake, Kanye West, Lil Wayne, Ludacris, Drake, Eminem, etc…
