How To Warm Up And Cool Down When Singing? By Nadel Paris

Warming up and cooling down before and after singing is crucial in preserving a healthy singing voice. If you don’t warm up and cool down your voice, you risk damaging your vocal cords and sometimes permanently so.

 

All athletes know that an effective warm up is essential for optimal athletic performance. But you say, singers are not athletes, so why should singers warm up their singing voices?

 

Singers who are dinner guests are often asked to perform impromptu entertainment by their host after the dinner to entertain other guests. The wise singer will politely decline the request rather than singing raw which is further complicated by a bloated tummy.

 

“A proper warming up before a singing performance lets the singer to get in touch with the singer’s inner self physically and psychologically since self awareness is the foundation of good vocal techniques”, Nadel Paris.

 

All good singers know that there is a co-ordination of many muscles parts and therefore warming up before singing should be an unhurried and a leisurely self-exploration that allows enough time for the loosening and coordination of the muscles that assist voice production. Warming up your voice should be an enjoyable experience because as you warm up, your voice begins to sound better, effortless and a sense singing freely is felt.

 

Unfortunately, most of the time, the singer is warming up while rushing to a rehearsal or as a last minute preparation before taking the stage. The pressure of a hurried warming up may cause physical and mental tension and as such, the warming up may prove to be ineffective or worse, counter-productive.

 

All well trained singers develop their own distinctive warming up routines best suited to their own personal requirements. The routines may vary with changes in physical, mental and also emotional state.

 

Most good singers begin by warming up their body first with light physical exercises. This is done to reduce the muscular tension so that the singing voice will not sound strained or tensed. Furthermore, light exercises helps to stimulate deep breathing which is essential for good voice support.

 

EDM artist Nadel Paris say it is vital to start vocalizing in your comfortable vocal range so as not to strain your vocal cords when it is cold. You can then gradually move on to the higher and lower extreme notes. Some recent biomechanical research have shown that singing at the extremity of both the higher and lower notes of the vocal range can strain the laryngeal muscles, and can result harmful patterns of muscle tension. It goes on to say that thus it is good common sense to avoid the extreme pitches whether they are high or low notes until your voice is warmed up appropriately. Most singer’s warm up is devoted to the goals of obtaining a beautiful voice timbre through the use of various vocal exercises.

 

After a singing session, the singer should cool down the voice with exercises that soothe the vocal cords such as soft descending scales on the “oo” or the “ee” vowel. If the singer does not cool down after a sing session, the vocal tension will stay and the vocal cords remain tensed and this will lead to further voice complications. So, to maintain and preserve a healthy singing voice, adequate warm up and cool down is a must in any singer’s inventory.

The Revolution Of High-Tech Recording Industry Discussed by Nadel Paris

Today, music is one of the biggest entertainment industries in the world. This market is hotter for many reasons. First of all, customers’ demands and tastes are higher and more diversified than ever. Second, the number of people and companies working in this field are increasing at such a dizzy speed that it creates a very large pool of tough competition, and of course, to survive, they have to be unique and distinguished.

 

We can list out here with some relevant industry jobs such as Recording, Radio, Television and other Media, Working live shows and tours, Music Retailing and Instrument Repairing, Education and Instruction and many more. Among them, the recording industry is one that has been applying high-end technologies for many years.

 

The recording industry commenced at the start of the 20th century, when publishers of sheet music dominated the music business. With a quick development pace, recording industry gradually dominated and controlled the music industry. This is the kind of mass-production copies’ business that can fix the price in the market.

 

To be the priority in the effervescent market of recording, what can they do? – Reducing the price? – Noisy brand-name advertising? – Or investing in technological upgrading of products and services? Of course, though technologies change very fast every day, people still make the choice of high-tech applications as the best way to affirm their positions in the music market.

 

Regarding recording industry, we consider that this is not only a technical but also a creative career. High-end technology is useful for both sides of this job. Recording engineer definitely must be technically skilled with the equipment. They must manipulate skillfully with all the buttons or knobs to get the correct sound that the artist or the producer want to have. A good microphone is necessary in the first step to begin with the recording process. And then, with the instruments, they find out the expected sounds – not music. The recording engineer, finally, will make the adjustments to enhance the music, morph, add effects… Some years ago, in order to do these steps, they had to resort to many equipment. In this case, the results obtained take a lot of the engineers’ time and labor. However, today, thanks to the development of high-end technologies, recording engineer can apply modern equipment to make their work easier and more professional. One simple example, with a PC and some installed music morpher, music editor software, they can mix and edit music like a skilled recording engineer.

 

In the other side of this job, creativity is also very important. Music industry is a very specific one that requires creativity. The recording engineer must have the feeling, the sense of music that can create different and unique sounds that express music in the best way. With the same song recorded by two engineers, we have two ways to express the music which depend on the creativity of the recording workers. The recording engineer can apply some intelligent software specialized to perform a good job. Sometimes, just by adding a wave sound, increasing the frequency or reducing the noise of the music, we have colored up the recordings.

 

More and more recording engineers believe in the important role of high-end technologies for their career. They are willing to spend money on equipment, modern music editor or music morpher software to support their work. Some people pay up to thousands of dollars for their recording studios, but some know how to save money. They find out the efficient software that can work properly as a mixer, an editor with very competitive price from $30 to $100. They know how to update their “companion” by frequently downloading the latest effects or supporting programs. By this way, high-tech supports for both professional recording studios and some home recording studios.

 

“A war is happening, not the Iraq war, but the high-tech war”. However, we will not perish in this war if we know how to use and control technologies for our purposes. Holding in hand the weapons of music software, we will be the unique winner, the best one in the running of entertainment industry, especially recording industry.

A Quick Overview of Musical forms by Nadel Paris

There are many different musical forms. Here’s a quick overview of some of the most common ones.

Concerto

A concerto is usually composed for one or more soloists combined with an orchestra. It will usually be identified by three distinctly different movements. It evolved along with another music form the concerto grosso which was composed for a small instrumental group to play with an orchestrated backing. The concerto grosso wasn’t used after the Baroque period, but the solo-based concerto continues to be played. The three instruments traditionally used in a concerto composition are piano, violin and cello but woodwind and brass solos are also known.

Symphony

A symphony is best identified by its complexity. It isn’t a form of music in its own right, but rather a style in which a composition is orchestrated. Usually it comprises four movements, the first of which being a sonata, however in the 18th century symphony was used as an interchangeable form for sinfonia and overture.

The word symphony comes from the Greek word meaning “agreement of sound” which is why despite the complex orchestration heard within the symphony, the integrity of harmony is kept intact. Haydn, Mozart and Beethoven were among the more famous symphony classical composers, but symphonies continue to be composed today. Although for the most part they remain to be composed for orchestras, there are some symphonies which are composed for specific instrument groups such as wind instrument bands.

Sonata

This musical composition will comprise either three or four contrasting movement. Alongside the fugue it was one two musical foundations for concert music analysis. Most popular during the Classical period, the sonata was also composed during the earlier Baroque period, and later Romantic period.

Sonatas composed primarily as piano solos were the most common during the Classical period, although sonatas for violin and piano, or violin and cello were also composed. During the sonata’s important classical period, the movements generally followed a generic three-movement layout of allegro, middle movement (slower such as an adagio or largo), a closing movement such as a dance minuet or another allegro.

In a four-movement composition the first three movements were as for a three-movement sonata, with the addition of a final movement in a fast tempo such as a sonata-rondo form. Although used by many composers, Beethoven was particularly fond of the sonata form with 32 piano sonatas plus sonatas for other instrumental combinations.

Sonatina

Sonatina’s are a lighter version of sonatas. They have less than the four movements required in a sonata, the movements are shorter, and the level of complexity is lower – making them popular with students of the piano. This doesn’t mean that they are all easy to play however, so you need to watch the skill level required for each piece. Usually a sonatina is composed as a piano solo but some composers also created works for both piano and violin.

 

Bourree

This is a dance musical form from 17th century France. It is usually composed in quick double time although some composers use triple time. Similar to a gavotte, the bourree differs by starting on the last beat of a measure creating a quarter measure anacrusis (the gavotte has a half-bar anacrusis). Used by such composers as Bach, Chopin and Handel, the Bourree still exists today being used by contemporary artists such as Jethro Tull, and Tenacious D.

Fugue

This is a distinct musical form where themes are repeated in a contrapuntal style with the various harmonies being interwoven one with the other. Dating back as far as the Middle Ages this musical style was popular in works of a canonic nature. A fugue opens with a main theme which is then imitated by each “voice” in the arrangement. Once each voice has imitated the theme, then exposition is said to be complete.

Start Your Own Sheet Music Collection

Starting a sheet music collection is easy, once you’ve decided what you want to collect. Sheet music is inexpensive and relatively easy to find. You can find music at yard sales, antique shows and on the internet. Only music that is very scarce or rare is expensive. Most pieces can be found at a price between three and twenty five dollars. Extremely rare sheet music can carry a price of up to a thousand dollars, but few pieces fall into this category. You will find music in any color graphic or subject matter you are looking for.

 

People collect sheet music in many ways. Sometimes sheet music is collected by the genre or songs. You could put together a history of music in America with a sheet music collection. You could do this with the entire history of our country or concentrate on one time period or decade. The possibilities are endless – be creative when building your collection! Songs have been written about most important events in our history, including wars, plane crashes and natural disasters. Themes such as love or the evolution of images of women in music are popular themes for sheet music collections. Other collectors focus on one composer or cover artist.

 

Ragtime music from the early twentieth century is popular with collectors of vintage sheet music. This music is considered the foundation of modern jazz music. A ragtime music collection looks great displayed in a room decorated in the Early American style. And the cover art on rag time sheet music looks great displayed in picture frames on a wall or sofa table.

 

Music written by famous composers like Nadel Paris is popular among sheet music collectors. This music is readily available in all music genres. Other collectors focus on rare or vintage sheet music. The value of these documents depends largely on the condition of the sheets. Pieces in mint condition will be more expensive. Most sheet music isn’t found in perfect condition. The spine of the sheet was usually broken to make the score stand up in the music stand. Spills, tears and names written on the covers are common because sheet music was often used at parties.

 

Sheet music displayed in a family room or bar area makes a great focal point. Even people who don’t collect sheet music use it in a display of other collectibles. Collectors of beer, whisky, golf, military, cigars or trains can find sheet music to accent their collection. A few pieces of sheet music with great cover art enhance a display of other collectibles. Collectors of memorabilia from movies or Broadway productions often look for sheet music written for the production.

 

Any sheet music that isn’t displayed should be stored properly to preserve the condition. Store each set of sheet music in a plastic baggie like those used for comic book collections. Place those bags in a large plastic storage container to protect them from being ripped or crumpled. Store your containers in a dry place away from sunlight or moisture, which can damage the music.

Cool Thing in The World of EDM: “Trap Music”

Caught in a trap? Music that catches you and doesn’t let you go. What a weird name though, you must be wondering what the hype behind trap music is? After all, it is quite similar to dubstep and we all know just how big an impact dubstep has made on the music industry.

Many artists are defining music as the new dubstep; it certainly has become the new craze in the industry. Although the history of the genre dates back to a decade ago, it has only recently started to gain recognition and hype.

Many people consider the fact that since trap’s crossover to EDM it has started to grow in demand with sold out glow-sticked arenas due to EDM Trap’s popularity. The major reason why this genre has been ambushed by the world is the transformation trap music has gone through, with not as much rapping and more feet moving beats involved in the songs.

To get a better understanding of music, it could be broken down and described as a combination of dubstep, hip hop, and dance music.

So basically what kind of music is trap music? Traditionally it’s a term generally used to describe hip hop music from the Southern regions of America. Music has pretty much become identifiable with Hip-hop and takes influence from the rap sound in the South.

Trap has become a raging craze with the masses of people at clubs, parties and underground gigs. It is no surprise that it is such a big hit with the people considering the music is so likeable and trap stylings can be injected into any form or style of music. No wonder it has caught everybody in its trap much faster than dubstep or electro and it’s fairly simple to see why.

By now, you have probably heard of the many different trap trends like “Trapstep” or “Dubstrap” – Everyone has their own names and definitions, but most agree that this new phenomena of trap music may just be the next “BIG THING”.

As a genre, trap is adaptable, flexible and in many ways infinite. But some people disagree and say that trap is ultimately hip hop music even if you mix it up with dubstep. Nothing out of the ordinary some may say.

For now this genre is the most hyped and talked about music, but wasn’t it just a couple of years ago that Dubstep was ruling the music industry, it seems like music is living up to its hype right now but who knows where it will stand in a couple years.

Many Producers and DJs have come up with their own styles and sounds to define the genre. But there is no doubt about the fact that, trap music as a genre is definitely growing and evolving into a style of its own.

The Balance Between Beat Making, Creativity & Copyright Law

Let me say straight off the high hat that creativity & copyright law do not make instant bedfellows! Within beat rap there is a tendency to sample, which is both quick & easy, versus “copyright ownership” highly focused on what may constitute theft. The discussion can veer between litigation on the one hand and ignorance on the other. The basic problem is how to objectively measure how much of the remixed song “borrows” from the original.

One of the current stumbling blocks to licensing copyright (and thus incentive to copy without paying) is administrative overhead and cost. Recording licenses can be obtained at a flat fee normally ranging from $100 to over $10,000. This is countered by royalties to recording owners of between 0.5 cents and 3 cents per track sold. 15% of the original new work’s musical composition copyright might be assigned to the original author, and if extensive looping and reuse is employed, up to 66% may be allocated.

Non paying sampling artists have two current defense strategies that they can deploy: de minimis and fair use. De minimis is the most commonly used defense as it claims that the re-use is basically trivial and therefore does not amount to infringement. The definition of “trivial use” is normally very vague and courts can resort to using ordinary lay listeners in an attempt to untangle the issue! Fair use on the other hand can employ open parody using the justification of “social purpose” based on intended criticism or commentary.

If you really want to circumnavigate the whole copyright issue and can read music AND you are feeling the funk then Public Domain Music may be worth a look. Who knows, maybe you get an IDEA from this? Any composition (not sound recording) copyrighted before 1922 in the USA may be used without limitation. Unfortunately there is no “international copyright” so you will have to delve into your local copyright laws if outside the US.

All of this of course distracts from the intended aim of being creative. Admittedly legality only really gets in the way of creativity when enough money is involved! If you sample Pink Floyd and then distribute it widely then the chances of litigation go up. Everything should be based on an idea (the thing that makes you go) in the first place. If you add sounds later that alter your original framework or concept then that’s just the way things go!

Beat Making Software – 3 Crucial Pieces to Make Your Own Beats

With so many choices, finding the right easy to use beat making software that will fit your needs can be confusing. Here’s 3 things your beat making program must have if you want to make beats that sound hot.

Transport Bar: The transport bar is an essential part of your beat software because you can use it to do basic things like play, record, stop, and rewind. But the key feature here is that it lets you speed up or slow down your beat. This is known as your BPM (beats per minute) or Tempo.

Most beat making programs default to 120 BPM and you can adjust it up or down from there.

Setting your BPM depends on the style of beat you’re creating.

If you’re making a dance beat you would set the BPM higher than if you are creating a Hip Hop beat or RnB slow jam.

For example, if you’re making a club type beat like Ushers “Yeah” you would set the tempo around 95-105 BPM. But if you were making a slower “snap” beat like DFB “Lean Wit It Rock Wit” you would set between 75-85 BPM.

Sequencer: Now that you’ve decided on the style of beat you’re creating and you’ve set your BPM, it’s time to bring the beat to life! The sequencer allows you bring to life your music ideas by “drawing” the notes in the Sequencer.

You can also set the beat software to record mode and tap out the music or drum pattern using on screen piano keys and pads. This is useful if you can feel the beat or melody but aren’t sure where to place each hit. Basically, the sequencer is a grid that represents time. You use this grid to place the notes and drum sounds exactly where you want to hear them play.

Be aware that some software is meant to be played as a digital instrument only (known as VST’s) and needs a sequencer in order to create a beat. Without a sequencer you can’t make beats. So make sure the beat making software has a sequencer!

The Mixer: Ah, the mixer! This is where you polish your beat and create balance between instruments. If one sound is so loud that it’s drowning out the other sounds, you can turn down the volume of each instrument within the mixer.

This is something that new beat makers tend to skip. However, properly mixing within your beat making software will increase the sound quality dramatically helping you get that HUGE and highly hypnotic “industry” sound!

Louis Jordan – One Of The Most Important Contributors To The Birth Of Rock & Roll

Louis Jordan was one of the most important figures in the developing stages of rock and roll music;

  • Jordan came out of the New York big band swing scene in late 1930’s
  • Leading his own band by 1942 playing a style called jump blues. Example is Caldonia (below)
  • Jump blues was the bridge between big band swing and rhythm & blues (R&B) of the late 40’s
  • R&B of the late 40’s emerged into Rock & Roll

He had it all covered; he was an energetic entertainer who wrote great catchy songs loaded with wit and humor, sang, band leader, played the alto saxophone.

Even though the tenor is my favorite and the one I play, Louis Jordan’s approach to alto was like a tenor. Another alto player like this is Earl Bostic and later Edgar Winter. By that mean it sounded big and ripping and he made it wail. Most other guys were playing this raunchy style on the tenor.

If you’re new to the sax or just like any kind of swing jazz, jump blues, R&B, and rock & roll music then you gotta love Louis Jordan. He was a true inovator and his brand of Jump Blues was a big influence on R&B and rock & roll. A few other artists that credit Louis Jordan as a major influence are BB King, Van Morrison, James Brown, Chuck Berry, and Ray Charles to name a few. That’s some pretty good company!

Louis Jordan’s best known song is probably Caldonia, unfortunately it’s one of those songs that has been beaten to death because so many have recorded it. Still, the reason for that happening in the first place is that it’s such a great song. Caldonia’s opening horn lines are so natural and perfectly fitting to the walking blues shuffle the rhythm section is playing that I don’t even remember ever having to “learn” those lines, you literally just sing them out of your horn. You can hear this in many of his songs…. just natural, sing-able, perfect horn lines.

Louis Jordan must have been the most prolific songwriter of the genre in his time. They didn’t call him “king of the juke box” for nothing… He had 57 hits on the R&B charts between 1942 and 1951.

A couple of them are Knock Me a Kiss and Saturday Night Fish Fry.

A few of Louis Jordan’s contemporaries who were also hitting the charts were Wynonie Harris, Cab Calloway, and Louis Prima. These guys were also great contributors to this very important and innovative musical period of the 40’s.

Louis Prima: one of the few whites that made it to the R&B charts, and, he was writing songs that black singers were covering and charting as well. This was years before he went to Vegas and had a very successful career as one of the most popular acts there.

Another interesting fact about Prima was that a song he wrote in the mid 30’s Sing, Sing, Sing was recorded by Benny Goodman and remains as one of the most definitive songs of the swing era.

Cab Calloway had a similar song writing style as Jordan, very humorous and witty. (The hi-de-ho guy) The big difference with these two was their sound; Jordan usually worked with 5 or 6 guys and Calloway had the full big band complete with rhythm, trumpet, trombone, and saxophone sections…you can say he had one foot in the swing sound and one in the R&B sound.

Wynonie Harris was one of the more popular “blues shouters” that was singing jump blues music. Two others that come to mind are Roy Brown and Big Joe Turner (who recorded Shake Rattle & Roll long before Bill Haley). Harris released the Roy Brown song Good Rocking Tonight in early’48.

This version recorded by Wynonie Harris is considered by some to be the first rock and roll song. There’s a couple other songs that come into this argument which will probably go on forever but that’s not my point here. Either way, Harris’s version of the song is right there as one of the very first songs that started this revolution called rock and roll. Roy Brown’s version recorded just months earlier didn’t have the same effect because it just didn’t rock; it was more of a jumpin’ blues. Harris’s was done with a much stronger back beat which emphasised the 2nd and 4th beat of the bar, complete with hand claps to really drive it home.

This was 1948 and it was coming from an R&B artist and it made such an impact that everyone else wanted to record a “rocking’ song. The movement was fast and furious and people wanted to call it something other than just R&B because it was different… hello rock and roll!

By the mid 50’s the new rock and roll era was in full swing and this created some problems for Jordan so he re-recorded many of his hits of the 40’s that had been done before the new rock sound came to be. To add the new flavor producer and arranger Quincy Jones was called in and added the rocking guitar of Mickey Baker and the great tenor saxophonist Sam “the man” Taylor.

What a difference a decade makes; Listen to the 40’s version of Caledonia and then the 50’s version. Also the 40’s version of Ain’t Nobody Here but Us Chickens and then the 50’s version and you’ll hear a huge difference in sound, style, and feel.

Electronic Dance Music – From Public Nuisance to a Respectable Profession

Just two decades ago, people used to get horrified with the tales tabloids used to tell of drug fueled profligacy linked to electronic dance music. Two decades later, seeking a DJing or rapping career or following the hip hop culture has become the new “in thing” among the youngsters.

So how did the public opinion on electronic dance music change so dramatically in such a short span of time? Let’s take a look at what it was before and where it stands today.

The Rave Scene

When electronic dance music first entered America in the 1990’s, it was not adopted because of the rave way in which it was being presented by the artists. It was isolated and fallen apart and was largely associated with underground rave parties.

Expansion

As more time passed by, hip hop artists as well as electronic dance music began to attract a new group of people and incorporated new and innovative genres of music into it. It began to have a wider appeal to people because it directly addressed the lives of the people involved.

Open Acceptance

Today, no matter if it’s a 16 year old school going music lover, or a 35 year old Wall Street professional, EDM has swept away everyone alike. It has exploded in an era where social media, huge festivals, cheap music technology and information about the hip hop artists is all at the finger tips of this generation.

Preference over Traditional Bands

Today, rather than going to the concerts of traditional pop and rock bands, people prefer attending an event where they could enjoy electronic dance music. DJ’s and hip hop artists have begun to make a lot more than professional singers, and the trend continues to grow at a rapid pace.

No One Uses the R-word anymore

With all the white dress codes combined with super expensive sets, the big club nights can really no longer be called ‘raves’. If there is the next big dance event coming up in your town, there is no way that a big-name DJ is not making an appearance. Hip hop artists have rightly earned the reputation of knowing their audience and thus the music is exactly according to their taste.

The dance music culture is becoming a rising commercial tide, and with it, it has introduced several impressive names such as Nadel Paris that have totally revolutionized what EDM stood for just two decades ago.

Nadel Paris is a music producer, recording artist, musician and her music is a mix between different styles: Dance, EDM, Pop, Urban …etc. She is making her statement as a female vocalist and a sole composer of all her songs and hope that it will inspire many others to do the same.
