Video Project: Why do we listen to music?

Alright, so for my final project, I wanted to get into as to why people listen to music. It’s a very simple question, yes, but there isn’t a simple answer. The main focus was to try and to get into the scientific-aspect of why people listen to music.

So, as stated, there are five main reasons as to why people listen to music. These are curtesy of Counsel&Heal.

1. Eases pain

According to a study from the Frontiers in Psychology journal, researchers found that patients with fibromyalgia who listened to music that they liked experienced less pain and had increased motor ability than when they listened to pink noise, also know as flicker noise. The music was played at a slower rate of less than 120 beats per minute.

2. Helps with focus

If you need to focus, try listening to music specific to the late baroque period. Researchers from the Stanford University School of Medicine discovered that music led to brain changes that boosted attention and memory. The study was published in 2007.

3. Increases exercise performance

Many fitness experts have recommended people to create a playlist that can energize the body. In several studies, researchers have concluded that fast, upbeat music can push people to workout harder and make the workout more enjoyable.

4. Boosts mood

A 2011 study published in Nature Neuroscience found that classical music can trigger the brain to release dopamine, which improves mood and can make you feel happier.

5. Soothes

If you have had a stressful day and want to calm down, try listening to mellow music. A study conducted in 2013 and published in Ergonomics found that listening to mellow music could effectively reduce road rage.

I’ve always wondered as to why, at any given date and moment, I was listening to the music I was listening to. After doing my research, I conducted my own study as to when I listened to music and what I was feeling, along with the genre.

In the morning: I was listening to indie music (no surprise). Indie music, most of which I listen to from California-based bands, gets me into the feeling that summer brings. With my friends, cruising down the shore back at home, and hitting the beach. I felt as if I was listening this music because it takes me away from the reality of my early classes. Every morning that passed by, means that I’m one morning closer to being back in Seaside for work, and the beach with friends.

In the afternoon: I tended to listen to a lot of rap and music with heavy beats and fast lyrics. I get most of my classes done (except for a Wednesday night class) by 4:30 P.M, and I love to workout, so this music got me ready for my workouts. I usually will play this really loud in my headphones, so that I really get taken away and get the right mindset for my workout.

In the evening: Pop, and whatever is going around on the charts. At night, all of my roommates are at the apartment, along with a friend or two. So we will all hangout in the living room and get dinner and play xbox or watch tv. There’s never a moment where music isn’t playing. I feel like this music brings a lot of people together, or at least does that to us. I get a great vibe and always feel “at home,” even though I’m 100 miles away from the homeland.

All in all, I loved this topic, and the science behind why we listen to music. This blog has taught me a lot not only about music and society, but about myself as well. I really found what I love to do as a hobby, and that’s listening to music. With the research and study I did, I also found why I listen to what I do, and what moods coincide with my choice of genre.

Dave Matthews Band & Michael J. Fox jam out at charity event

Dave Matthews Band performed at the “A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to Cure Parkinson’s: An Evening of Comedy & Music,” charity event on November 12. The event, as stated in its title, had all funds go towards Parkinson’s disease.

Michael J. Fox, well-known for his role as Marty in Back To The Future, was diagnosed with Parkinson’s in 1991. His research and funding towards the diseased started in 2000.

As Dave Matthews and co. took the stage, they were welcomed and joined by Fox, who took his guitar-playing skills and performed with the group. The band performed “All Along The Watchtower,” inspired by Bob Dylan’s famous “Watchtower.”

Fox would add riffs and hit some nice solos in the performance, as it would bring nothing less than a smile to Dave Matthews’ face, and to those watching along with him.

“This is not the first time Fox has taken the stage with a famous band this year. In July, he performed the Penguins’ “Earth Angel” and Chuck Berry’s “Johnny B. Goode” – both of which Fox played years before in the movie Back to the Future”- Rolling Stone

The benefit would raise over $5 million, and raised the hopes of research towards the unfortunate disease as well.

“It’s grown in amazing ways with the amount of people in the greater Parkinson’s community – and outside of it – who come out and support us,” Fox noted before Saturday’s benefit. “It’s humbling every year.” – Rolling Stone

Bad Suns new album “Disappear Here” takes sophomore slump out of discussion

After tagging along with pop-singer/songwriter Halsey, Bad Suns broke news of their second studio album titled “Disappear Here.” They released a title-named song, and immediately showed the road they are taking, and the identity they want to behold.

Before releasing this new album, Bad Suns were taking the industry bit by bit. Their song “Cardiac Arrest” gaining a huge draw from people around the world, and was even preformed on “Conan.” But, in an interview with Billboard, the group were about to call it quits, and start over entirely with a new identity.

Their debut album, “Language & Perspective,” featured the hit song. The record goes through the band’s struggle of trying to make a impact in the music industry. It’s music at its purest form.

With “Cardiac Arrest,” it was more of a last lick of trying to get out there. In that interview, Christo Brown, the frontman of the group, said: “We put [‘Cardiac Arrest’] online saying, ‘This is what we’ve been working on for so long, hope you guys like it at least,'” he says. “We were expecting to put [Bad Suns] to rest after releasing the song, just to show what we were doing and then start a new project.”

The exact opposite happened. Labels and those in the industry took notice, which led to their success and the new album “Disappear Here.” Alternative Press wrote a review touching on the album and the band’s success in creating a name for themselves. “The track (Disappear Here) opens the record with a reassuring blend of post-punk melodies and ’80s new wave guitar work, all masterfully crafted through a modern pop lens.” This is what the band has created. It’s such a refreshing mix of different genres all in one.

“Disappear Here, the newest album by California alt-rock band Bad Suns, sounds like it was created for sunset drives down winding roads. The follow-up to 2014’s Language and Perspective, it takes the listener on a journey through a myriad of sonic landscapes, making stops along the way to marvel at both the beauty and the harsh truth of the universe. Some of its tracks are wistful laments of good times gone wrong; others are upbeat celebrations of life. All thirteen of them shine with insight, honesty and enough rock-and-roll confidence to convince listeners that Bad Suns is a band to be watched.” – TheYoungFolks.com

After such a successful first impact with appearances on “Conan,” touring with Halsey, and even The 1975, Bad Suns are now on watch. I recently started listening to them on Spotify, and I can’t get enough. They are exactly what you want in an indie/ alt. rock band, or really just music in general. They generate so much energy throughout their music, that it spreads into listener’s ears as some really great stuff. If you love the feeling you get while cruising through the beach or town with your windows down, Bad Suns give you just that with their music.

Video Post: Incubus

So, for this week’s post, I decided to go with my favorite band of all time; Incubus.

Of course, they are a California-based band. I don’t know why that seems to be my personal go-to. Nonetheless, I decided to take some videos and instead of just finding the specific shots and camera angles to be used, I created my own music video with it all.

Enjoy!

Tom DeLonge has always been insane

If you know of Tom DeLonge, you know that he was part of the legendary rock band Blink-182. You know that he’s broken the band apart a couple times, and has been in other groups such as Box Car Racer, and since 2010, Angels And Airwaves. What you might also be fond of, is his obsession of extraterrestrial life.

DeLonge has more often than not been a hot take in the news for this interest he has in alien life. Weird? Yes. But, who hasn’t thought of these things before? I used to want to be an astronaut and absolutely loved aliens and space. Tom is bringing our childhood thought-process into adulthood, and making some kind of conversation with it.

Blink-182 literally produced a song titled “Aliens Exist” back in 2005 written by DeLonge.

“What if people knew that these were real
I’d leave my closet door open all night
I know the CIA would say
What you hear is all hearsay
I wish someone would tell me what was right” – Aliens Exist, Blink-182

DeLonge has always brought a type of style to his music that really makes you feel a sensation as if you were actually flying in a sense. A type of feeling as if you are in a spaceship or somewhere that isn’t Earth. The continuous strum-pattern that he brought to many of songs (which people often criticize his groups for sounding the same with most songs) gives this effect. If you listen to AVA’s (Angels and Airwaves) first album “We Don’t Need To Whisper,” you can hear just that in 9 of the 10 total tracks.

Oh, and every cover-art for AVA displays a space-styled scene. Just in case you were wondering. Here’s a sample:

ava-2

It is what has been in the news recently about the artist, though, that has supports like myself saying “wow, this guy really never stops.” But, this is why we, or at least I, admire the guy. He never stops what he loves. According to RollingStone, and a WikiLeakes reveal, DeLonge legitimately emailed Democratic Presidential Nominee Hillary Clinton’s chairman John Podesta about extraterrestrial lifeforms.

In the Podesta emails leaked by Wikileaks, DeLonge reached out to Clinton’s campaign chairman in an effort to set up a Washington, D.C. meeting between them and two people “in charge of most fragile divisions, as it relates to Classified Science and DOD topics. Other words, these are A-Level officials,” DeLonge wrote back in October 2015. “Podesta, who also served as senior advisor to President Barack Obama, expressed disappointment in February 2015 that his time in the White House didn’t result in the revelation of the existence of UFOs. ‘Finally, my biggest failure of 2014: Once again not securing the #disclosure of the UFO files. #thetruthisstilloutthere, Podesta tweeted.’

In short, DeLonge has put away a lot in his life in order to expand his knowledge and desire to uncover truths about such life. He has broken the infamous Blink-182 up multiple times for reasons pertaining to extraterrestrial discovery, with the last break-up being the absolute end.

Again, I’ve always admired this guy for going against thing sin order to prove what he believes is right and what the public should be allowed to know. In fact, to end this, he actually came to an agreement with Clinton that she will declassify all documents pertaining to extraterrestrials if elected president.

Crazy stuff for most. “The usual,” for Tom DeLonge.

“What seems like ridiculous subject matter to most, is of massive importance to admirable National Security Leadership. It’s easy to poke fun about the topic from an armchair, but unless you’re invited to the meetings I have been a part of, then…no more laughing. Big things are coming. Project is still on, believe it or not, things just got bigger.” – Tom Delonge, RollingStone

 

Audio Post

So, for this week’s post, I wanted to write a little about the alternative/indie rock band Young the Giant. The media upload was put on Soundcloud, and even though it says it’s 2:07 minutes long, it’s really at 2:00 on the dot, as the music fades out and I couldn’t really figure out how to cut some time off. So please donNonetheless, here it is.
