Mosaic Music 3 – April 2011 – The Draw

April 2nd, 2011 § 0 comments

I haven’t had time to put a video together this month, but I promise it’ll be back next month, and also that this draw was genuine….

So, here are the parameters for April:

TEMPO – 70 – 80 bpm

LENGTH – Between 4 and 5 minutes

KEY – C Minor

NUMBER OF INSTRUMENTS – 2

INSTRUMENTS – 1 x Brass & 1 x Strings

NUMBERS OF VOCALS (if desired) – 2

LYRICAL CONTENT (if desired) – From a film

NUMBER OF GENRE INFLUENCES – 5

GENRES – Doom Metal | Schlager (??) | Art Rock | Gypsy Jazz (Yes!) |Reggae

NUMBER OF OTHER INSTRUCTIONS – 2

OTHER INSTRUCTIONS – “Intentions – credibility of/nobility of/humility of” & “Emphasise repititions”

So there you go, please take part, I promise I will this month.
Anyone wondering what “schlager” is, it seems to just mean “hit” music, a kind of northern european pop music, soft, harmless, brass heavy, sing alongs….kind of like this:

CHRIS ROBERTS – “Du kannst nicht immer 17 sein” ( You cannot always be 17)

As for Doom Metal, here’s Gallhammer, an all female japanese doom metal band – its not bad actually…

GALLHAMMER – “World to be Ashes”

Gypsy Jazz couldn’t really be anything other than Django Reinhardt and the hot club quintet….

DJANGO REINHARDT – “J’attendrai Swing”

Art Rock? well here’s a brilliant Talking Heads video

TALKING HEADS – “(Nothing but) Flowers”

Lastly, a very odd little clip of The Congo’s in a film called Jamdown from 1980 – there’s a great little bit of acoustic “Fisherman” on a beach……

THE CONGO’S
