the fuck is this
it’s graphic notation.
you can play the chimes in whichever way you interpret the lines.
for example, you could see it as high points being forte dynamics, and low points being piano dynamics.
but in this case, it looks like the composer just wants you to sustain the sound of the chimes after hitting an accent with them.
it looks weird, yeah, but thankfully you don’t have to overthink this.
Nah, I don’t think that’s right
really? this one from 1975 for a percussionist must be totally wrong too!
or how about something a little newer than that? like, 1985? does body drumming sound interesting? fuck yeah it does! I’ll even throw in the instructions for how to read this! it’s totally wrong (and in French!), but…
we’ve been so wrong since the 1950’s, it’s absolutely crazy to think that composers like this guy was wrong:
…as well as this Stockhausen fella:
or even this guy:
"but it’s 2014! no one writes like that anymore!"

Metal music has historically been heavily influenced by black music. First there was blues music done mainly by black people, then rock developed from blues, and finally metal developed from rock music. Metal has no roots in any of the old Germanic tribes at all. Any metal fan thinking that his music is an Aryan one is simply wrong, and singing German does not make this music traditional white music. Nazis in the third reich called music like blues (as well as jazz) ‘n***** music’ and therefore would also not have liked metal music either.
Apart from the black blues influences of metal music there are lots of other non-Aryan influences in metal. The bass drum used in metal music derived from the bass drum used in jazz, which is originally the Turkish bass drum ‘davul’. Cymbals of any kind have Chinese roots, also with Turkish influences. The same goes for tom toms.
Metal is not the only music that has non-Aryan roots - the same goes for classical European music:
- The oboe derived from the Arabic ‘mizmar’ (or ‘zurna’ in turkish), which later became a shalm and finally the oboe as we know it.
- The lute is nothing other than the Arabic ‘oud’. Not even the shape has changed.
- The guitar is Spanish as well as Mauritanian (that’s probably why ‘Varg Vikernes’ once called them ‘n***** instruments’ and therefore stopped playing guitars in ‘Burzum’).
- The violin derived from the Persian instrument ‘rebab’. It is well known that Persians are ‘Aryans’ as well, but anyway they don’t belong to the old Germanic tribes.
- The complete percussion section in European orchestra music comes from the Turkish military music of the Ottoman empire called ‘Janissary’ music."

This is now the only way to play classical sax. Jazz sax can keep the reeds, but not any sax in a concert band.

IM SCREAMIBG WITH LAUGHTER THESE GIRLS ARE MY HEROES
SHOTS FUCKING FIRED
For anyone not familiar with how modern country sounds, these girls are calling out ACTUAL songs like making blatant references to ACTUAL lyrics from other songs on the radio.
And its fucking FLAWLESS OH MY GOD THIS IS AMAZING.
One of the reasons I stopped listening to country was, when I was a kid, the radio was full of songs by women and songs that talked about women like they were actual people.
Now so many of the songs dont give women a personality, just describe things about them like their legs, their lips, how they look in your truck. Its just SO much objectification.
My sister just showed me this and its ADSFHASDFKLLKFH she even said she heard it on the radio im so happy
"I aint your tan legged juliet" IM SCREECHING
