In his message for the concert programme, Prime Minister Lee said:

“While it is important that we put bread to the table, man does not live by bread alone. Our nation would be soul-less without an appreciation of arts and culture.

“Our founding fathers believed a symphony orchestra would enrich our culture and show the world that Singapore aimed to be a gracious society.

“Forty years on, the SSO is a fixture in our cultural firmament. When it performs to standing ovations and critical acclaim in major venues like the BBC Proms, the Berlin Philharmonie and the Prague Spring Festival, it is cause for pride and celebration. The SSO continues to bring joy to Singaporeans from all walks of life, making sure that its music is not just enjoyed by a select few.”

Many factors can contribute to a superhero movie’s popularity and success. In the case of Wonder Woman, the music plays an important part. How does the melody which is made up of the notes: E-G-B-B♭, create such intense and powerful feelings? Did you also get a hint of a banshee's cry in this theme?

You know the feeling when you always keep moving up? Just like the Penrose stairs which is an impossible reality, something that fools the human eye. A similar thing can happen with tones, giving you what you call an auditory illusion. The Shepard Tone is a tone that seemingly goes up or down endlessly – At least that’s what it appears to be doing!

Lifschitz’s account of Janacek’s suite On an Overgrown Path feels intensely true to the idiom: the music’s dramatic stops and starts, its growls and screams, exhilaration and despair, its alternation between tentativeness and declamation – everything is there in bold, emotional close-up. And with Debussy’s first book of Preludes, Lifschitz shows what a master he is of colour, texture and line.

The joys and benefits of playing ensemble piano are numerous. Beyond the great sound textures that two pianists can achieve and the sheer fun of playing together, many levels of learning are also addressed.👍🏻

Whether it’s in his music as Nine Inch Nails, his soundtrack work in collaboration with Atticus Ross, or with How to Destroy Angels, Trent Reznor’s sound is always uniquely identifiable.

Although part of this is due to his sound design, involving digital distortion and noise processing a variety of sound sources, his use of harmony, chords, and melody also has a major impact on his sound.

Whether it’s in his music as Nine Inch Nails, his soundtrack work in collaboration with Atticus Ross, or with How to Destroy Angels, Trent Reznor’s sound is always uniquely identifiable.

Although part of this is due to his sound design, involving digital distortion and noise processing a variety of sound sources, his use of harmony, chords, and melody also has a major impact on his sound.

Reznor’s music has a distinctly anxious tone that sets the scene for his often bleak lyrics. In the film Sound City, Reznor explains that he has a music theory foundation, specifically in relation to the keyboard, and this subconciously affects his writing.

Music is a powerful thing: It can raise our spirits, carry us through athletic challenges, and make us weep. Its very fabric is a source of power and intrigue, too, since just a measly few tones might do anything from shatter glass to manifest the Devil’s Tritone.

Music is a powerful thing: It can raise our spirits, carry us through athletic challenges, and make us weep. Its very fabric is a source of power and intrigue, too, since just a measly few tones might do anything from shatter glass to manifest the Devil’s Tritone.

The Devil's Interval, and diabolus in musica, this combination of tones has led to some of the most chilling melodies in music history, from classical compositions to heavy metal riffs, and even has a reputation for being banned by religious authority in centuries past.

Should we have taken him to a doctor earlier? Wife and son ask after musician dies of dengue.

Veteran musician Lin Ah Leck, 69, was still conducting just three days before his death on 13 Oct 2019.

But the music teacher, conductor and composer, was clearly unwell, and staggered out of his home.

Amusia is a musical disorder which inhibits a person to process pitch, and affects musical memory and recognition. Amusia can be present at birth or sometime at a later part in life. It can also happen from brain damage. When you acquire amusia at birth, it is known as tone deafness, or Congenital Amusia. This type of amusia affects about 4% of the population. Acquired Amusia from brain damage, however, is more common.

Conceived in 2011, the Barenboim piano has taken 18 months and 4,000 people hours of work to build – and may one day go into wider production

The exterior looks much the same as any other modern concert grand piano but inside there are some dramatic differences.

Designed by the Belgian instrument maker Chris Maene, the Barenboim has straight parallel strings instead of the diagonal-crossed ones of a contemporary piano. The wooden soundboard veins go in different directions. The bridges, ribs and bracings are specially-designed and the hammers and strings (yellow brass rather than red brass) have been repositioned.
