Film Score also sometimes called background score, background music, film music or incidental music) is original music written specifically to accompany a film.

Soundtrack is recorded music accompanying and synchronized to the images of a motion picture, book, television program or video game.

Sound Mixer location sound recordist, location sound engineer or simply sound mixer is the member of a film crew or television crew responsible for recording all sound recording on set during the filmmaking or television production using professional audio equipment, for later inclusion in the finished product, or for reference to be used by the sound designer, sound effects editors, or foley artists. This requires choice and deployment of microphones, choice of recording media, and mixing of audio signals in real time.

Playwright is a person who writes plays. Also known as a dramatist.

Dance is a performance art form consisting of purposefully selected sequences of human movement. This movement has aesthetic and symbolic value, and is acknowledged as dance by performers and observers within a particular culture. Dance can be categorized and described by its choreography, by its repertoire of movements, or by its historical period or place of origin.

Microphone, mic or mike, is a transducer that converts sound into an electrical signal. Most microphones today use electromagnetic induction (dynamic microphones), capacitance change (condenser microphones) or piezoelectricity (piezoelectric microphones) to produce an electrical signal from air pressure variations. Microphones typically need to be connected to a preamplifier before the signal can be recorded or reproduced.
Amplifier is an electronic component that can increase the power of a signal.
Preamplifier is an electronic amplifier that prepares a small electrical signal for further amplification or processing. They are typically used to amplify signals from microphones, instrument pickups, and phonographs to line level. Preamplifiers are often integrated into the audio inputs on mixing consoles, DJ mixers, and sound cards. They can also be stand-alone devices.
Electromagnetic Induction is the production of an electromotive force or voltage across an electrical conductor due to its dynamic interaction with a magnetic field.
Piezoelectricity is the electric charge that accumulates in certain solid materials (such as crystals, certain ceramics,
and biological matter such as bone, DNA and various proteins) in response to applied mechanical stress.

Idiophone  is any musical instrument that creates sound primarily by the instrument as a whole vibrating—without the use of strings or membranes.
Aerophone is any musical instrument that produces sound primarily by causing a body of air to vibrate, without the use of strings or membranes, and without the vibration of the instrument itself adding considerably to the sound. Aerophones categorically comprise "the largest and most complex group of instruments in the Americas"
Chordophone is a musical instrument that makes sound by way of a vibrating string or strings stretched between two points. It is one of the four main divisions of instruments in the original Hornbostel-Sachs scheme of musical instrument classification.
Membranophone is any musical instrument which produces sound primarily by way of a vibrating stretched membrane. It is one of the four main divisions of instruments in the original Hornbostel-Sachs scheme of musical instrument classification.
Viol is any one of a family of bowed, fretted and stringed instruments that first appeared in Spain in the mid to late 15th century and was most popular in the Renaissance and Baroque periods.
Theremin (wiki)   Video
Hang Instrument is a musical instrument in the idiophone class created by Felix Rohner and Sabina Schärer in Bern, Switzerland. The instrument is constructed from two half-shells of deep drawn, nitrided steel sheet glued together at the rim leaving the inside hollow and creating a distinct 'UFO shape'. The top ("Ding") side has a center 'note' hammered into it and seven or eight 'tone fields' hammered around the center. The bottom ("Gu") is a plain surface that has a rolled hole in the center with a tuned note that can be created when the rim is struck.

Audio - Sound - Acoustics


Audio Engineer  works on the recording, manipulating the record using equalization and electronic effects, mixing, reproduction, and reinforcement of sound.Formula Wheel Acoustics
Sound Mixer is the member of a film crew or television crew responsible for recording all sound recording on set during the filmmaking or television production using professional audio equipment, for later inclusion in the finished product, or for reference to be used by the sound designer, sound effects editors, or foley artists. This requires choice and deployment of microphones, choice of recording media, and mixing of audio signals in real time.
Low Fidelity is a type of sound recording which contains technical flaws that make the recording sound different compared with the live sound being recorded, such as distortion, hum, background noise, or limited frequency response.
Sound Recording Reproduction is an electrical, mechanical, electronic, or digital inscription and re-creation of sound waves, such as spoken voice, singing, instrumental music, or sound effects. The two main classes of sound recording technology are analog recording and digital recording.

Ambience (wiki)
Modulation (wiki)
Amplitude Modulation
Harmonic describes any member of the harmonic series. The term is employed in various disciplines, including music and acoustics, electronic power transmission, radio technology, etc.
Sound is a vibration that propagates as a typically audible mechanical wave of pressure and displacement, through a medium such as air or water. In physiology and psychology, sound is the reception of such waves and their perception by the brain. Hearing
Waves
Reverberation is the persistence of sound after a sound is produced. A reverberation, or reverb, is created when a sound or signal is reflected causing a large number of reflections to build up and then decay as the sound is absorbed by the surfaces of objects in the space – which could include furniture, people, and air. This is most noticeable when the sound source stops but the reflections continue, decreasing in amplitude, until they reach zero amplitude.
Sound Localization refers to a listener's ability to identify the location or origin of a detected sound in direction and distance. It may also refer to the methods in acoustical engineering to simulate the placement of an auditory cue in a virtual 3D space (see binaural recording, wave field synthesis).

Recapitulation
Repetition Pitch is an unexpected sensation of tonality or pitch that often occurs in nature when a sound is reflected against a sound-reflecting surface (for example: a brick wall), and both the original and the reflected sound arrive at the ear of an observer, but with a short time delay between the two arrivals.
Absolute Pitch, perfect pitch, is a rare auditory phenomenon characterized by the ability of a person to identify or re-create a given musical note without the benefit of a reference tone.
Overtone is any frequency greater than the fundamental frequency of a sound.
Tone (musical instrument) refers to the audible characteristics of a player's sound.
Pitch is a perceptual property of sounds that allows their ordering on a frequency-related scale, or more commonly, pitch is the quality that makes it possible to judge sounds as "higher" and "lower" in the sense associated with musical melodies.
Musical Tone is characterized by its duration, pitch, intensity (or loudness), and timbre (or quality).
Musical Note A notation representing the pitch and duration of a musical sound.
Frequency is the number of occurrences of a repeating event per unit time. If a newborn baby's heart beats at a frequency of 120 times a minute, its period—the time interval between beats—is half a second (that is, 60 seconds divided by 120 beats)
Fundamental Frequency is defined as the lowest frequency of a periodic waveform. In music, the fundamental is the musical pitch of a note that is perceived as the lowest partial present.
Equalization (audio) is the process of adjusting the balance between frequency components within an electronic signal. The most well known use of equalization is in sound recording and reproduction but there are many other applications in electronics and telecommunications. The circuit or equipment used to achieve equalization is called an equalizer. These devices strengthen (boost) or weaken (cut) the energy of specific frequency bands or "frequency ranges".
Stochastic Resonance is a phenomenon where a signal that is normally too weak to be detected by a sensor, can be boosted by adding white noise to the signal, which contains a wide spectrum of frequencies. The frequencies in the white noise corresponding to the original signal's frequencies will resonate with each other, amplifying the original signal while not amplifying the rest of the white noise (thereby increasing the signal-to-noise ratio which makes the original signal more prominent). Further, the added white noise can be enough to be detectable by the sensor, which can then filter it out to effectively detect the original, previously undetectable signal.
Signal-to-Noise Ratio is a measure used in science and engineering that compares the level of a desired signal to the level of background noise. It is defined as the ratio of signal power to the noise power, often expressed in decibels. A ratio higher than 1:1 (greater than 0 dB) indicates more signal than noise.
White Noise is a random signal having equal intensity at different frequencies, giving it a constant power spectral density.

Amusia is a musical disorder that appears mainly as a defect in processing pitch but also encompasses musical memory and recognition.

Spiritual Music are generally Christian songs that were created by African slaves in the United States. Spirituals were originally an oral tradition that imparted Christian values while also describing the hardships of slavery. Although spirituals were originally unaccompanied monophonic (unison) songs, they are best known today in harmonized choral arrangements. This historic group of uniquely American songs is now recognized as a distinct genre of music.
Hymn is a type of song, usually religious, specifically written for the purpose of adoration or prayer, and typically addressed to a deity or deities, or to a prominent figure or personification.
Carol is in modern parlance a festive song, generally religious but not necessarily connected with church worship, and often with a dance-like or popular character.
Chant is the rhythmic speaking or singing of words or sounds, often primarily on one or two main pitches called reciting tones. Chants may range from a simple melody involving a limited set of notes to highly complex musical structures, often including a great deal of repetition of musical subphrases. Mantra

Choir or Choras is a musical ensemble of singers. Choral music, in turn, is the music written specifically for such an ensemble to perform. Choirs may perform music from the classical music repertoire, which spans from the Medieval era to the present, and/or popular music repertoire. Most choirs are led by a conductor, who leads the performances with arm and face gestures.

Sight-Singing is the reading and performing of a piece of music or song in music notation that the performer has not seen before.

Sing-Along is an event of singing together at gatherings or parties, less formally than choir singing.
Lullaby or cradle song, is a soothing song or piece of music, usually played for or sung to children.

Whistling without the use of an artificial whistle is achieved by creating a small opening with one's lips and then blowing or sucking air through the hole. The air is moderated by the lips, tongue, teeth or fingers (placed over the mouth) to create turbulence, and the mouth acts as a resonant chamber to enhance the resulting sound by acting as a type of Helmholtz resonator.

Singing Knowledge


Voice Types (wiki)
Soprano  is a type of classical female singing voice and has the highest vocal range of all voice types.
Alto refers to the second highest part of a contrapuntal musical texture and is also applied to its associated vocal range, especially in choral music. More rarely it describes the highest male solo voice type (usually designated countertenor), and it is also the root word of contralto, the lowest standard female voice type. When designating instruments, "alto" likewise can refer either to the corresponding vocal range (alto flute and alto trombone) or to musical role (alto recorder and alto clarinet).
Tenor is a type of classical male singing voice whose vocal range is one of the highest of the male voice types.
Baritone is a type of classical male singing voice whose vocal range lies between the bass and the tenor voice types.
Bass Voice is a type of classical male singing voice and has the lowest vocal range of all voice types.
Figured Bass is a kind of musical notation in which numerals and symbols (often accidentals) indicate intervals, chords, and non-chord tones that a musician playing harpsichord, organ, lute (or other instruments capable of playing chords) play in relation to the bass note that these numbers and symbols appear above or below.
Vocal Range is the measure of the breadth of pitches that a human voice can phonate.
Vocal Resonation is the process by which the basic product of phonation is enhanced in timbre and/or intensity by the air-filled cavities through which it passes on its way to the outside air.
Human Voice consists of sound made by a human being using the vocal folds for talking, singing, laughing, crying, screaming, etc..
Prima Donna is the leading female singer in the company, the person to whom the prime roles would be given. The prima donna was normally, but not necessarily, a soprano. The corresponding term for the male lead (almost always a tenor) is primo uomo. Prime donne often had grand off-stage personalities and were seen as demanding of their colleagues. From its original usage in opera, the term has spread in contemporary usage to refer to anyone behaving in a demanding or temperamental fashion or having an inflated view of oneself and a narcissistic attitude.
Roughness is studied by examining how textures are perceived and encoded by an individual's somatosensory system.
Human Screams
Larynges is an organ in the neck of tetrapods involved in breathing, sound production, and protecting the trachea against food aspiration. It manipulates pitch and volume. The larynx houses the vocal folds (vocal cords), which are essential for phonation. The vocal folds are situated just below where the tract of the pharynx splits into the trachea and the esophagus.

Singing Lessons


Singing is the act of producing musical sounds with the voice, and augments regular speech by the use of sustained tonality, rhythm, and a variety of vocal techniques. A person who sings is called a singer or Vocalist. Singers perform music (arias, recitatives, songs, etc.) that can be sung with or without accompaniment by musical instruments. Singing Lessons

History of Lyrics

Music Articulation refers to the direction or performance technique which affects the transition or continuity on a single note or between multiple notes or sounds.
Aesthetics of Music explores the mathematical and cosmological dimensions of rhythmic and harmonic organization.

Vocal Range is the measure of the breadth of pitches that a human voice can phonate, which the vocal folds produce certain sounds through quasi-periodic vibration.
Vocal Folds or vocal cords, are composed of twin infoldings of mucous membrane stretched horizontally, from back to front, across the larynx. They vibrate, modulating the flow of air being expelled from the lungs during phonation. Open when breathing and vibrating for speech or singing, the folds are controlled via the vagus nerve.
Vibration is a mechanical phenomenon whereby oscillations occur about an equilibrium point.

Why do some people believe that their singing sounds good when it's actually not so great?

First lets put aside your personal perceptions, your personal preferences, your metacognition and your ego. Second, you have to understand that you sound different to yourself than you do to other people, mostly because you hear less than 40 percent of what comes out of your mouth, due to the resonance inside your head. So sounding good to yourself does not mean that you will sound good to others. To hear yourself singing accurately you need a good voice recorder and a good sound system. Try to mimic beautiful notes by singers you sound like and record yourself singing that same song. And then play them both back and compare each recording. But you still need to know the difference between a live singing voice and a studio singing voice, because a studio can add effects and other sound editing techniques that can make a singers voice sound amazing. Then you will need someone else's opinion who has knowledge and experience with analyzing singing. Then you should have your friends and family give opinions too, especially people who are not afraid to be honest, not that other people have the skill and knowledge in order to analyze what good singing is, but the more input the better because the reasons why other people have for liking or not liking your singing might give you some good insight. Try a Karaoke Machine because that could also help with analyzing your singing. Learn to understand pitch, tone and rhythm and other key elements of good singing, good singing that is pleasant to the ear.

Amusia is a musical disorder that appears mainly as a defect in processing pitch but also encompasses musical memory and recognition. Two main classifications of amusia exist: acquired amusia, which occurs as a result of brain damage, and congenital amusia, which results from a music-processing anomaly present since birth.
Auditory Agnosia is a form of agnosia that manifests itself primarily in the inability to recognize or differentiate between
sounds.
Phonagnosia is a type of agnosia, or loss of knowledge, that involves a disturbance in the recognition of familiar voices
and the impairment of voice discrimination abilities in which the affected individual does not suffer from comprehension deficits. Phonagnosia is an auditory agnosia, an acquired auditory processing disorder resulting from brain damage, other auditory agnosias include cortical deafness and auditory verbal agnosia also known as pure word deafness.
Auditory Verbal Agnosia is the inability to comprehend speech. Individuals with this disorder lose the ability to understand language, repeat words, and write from dictation. However, spontaneous speaking, reading, and writing are preserved.
Unable recognize common tunes
Tone Deafness is the lack of relative pitch, or the inability to distinguish between musical notes that is not due to the lack of musical training or education. Tone deafness is the congenital form of amusia. It is also known as tune deafness, "tin ear", dysmelodia and dysmusia.
Beat Deafness is a form of congenital amusia characterized by a person's inability to feel musical rhythm or move in time to it.

Cacophony: Loud confusing disagreeable sounds. A loud harsh or strident noise. Harshness in the sound of words or phrases.

What would be useful is having a way for people to analyze their singing using a computer software program so they can do a side by side comparison that shows them how the notes should sound when compared to a professional singer.

Music Education


How Music Works (Video: 48:18, Francis Hanly, David Jeffcock-2006)

Music Education is a field of study associated with the teaching and learning of music. It touches on all learning domains, including the psychomotor domain (the development of skills), the cognitive domain (the acquisition of knowledge), and, in particular and significant ways, the affective domain (the learner's willingness to receive, internalize, and share what is learned), including music appreciation and sensitivity. Music training from preschool through post-secondary education is common in most nations because involvement with music is considered a fundamental component of human culture and behavior. Music, like language, is an accomplishment that distinguishes humans as a species.
Educational Music

Music Psychology or Music Cognition is a branch of both psychology and musicology. It aims to explain and understand musical behavior and experience, including the processes through which music is perceived, created, responded to, and incorporated into everyday life.
Biomusicology is the study of music from a biological point of view. The term was coined by Nils L. Wallin in 1991 to encompass several branches of music psychology and musicology, including evolutionary musicology, neuromusicology, and comparative musicology.
Music Theory concerned with describing how musicians and composers make music, including tuning systems and composition methods among other topics. Because of the ever-expanding conception of what constitutes music (see Definition of music), a more inclusive definition could be that music theory is the consideration of any sonic phenomena, including silence, as they relate to music.
Musical Form refers to the overall structure or plan of a piece of music,[1] and it describes the layout of a composition as divided into sections.
Song Structure in traditional music and popular music are typically sectional, repeating forms used in songs, such as strophic form and is a part of the songwriting process. Other common forms include thirty-two-bar form, verse-chorus form, and the twelve-bar blues. Popular music songs traditionally use the same music for each verse of stanza of lyrics (as opposed to songs that are "through-composed", an approach used in classical music). Pop and traditional forms can be used even with songs that have structural differences in melodies.[clarification needed] The most common format is intro, verse, pre-chorus, chorus (or refrain), verse, pre-chorus, chorus, bridge ("middle eight"), verse, chorus and outro.
Instruments
Musicology is the scholarly analysis and research of music. Musicology is part of the humanities. A scholar who participates in musical research is a musicologist.
Musical Composition can refer to an original piece of music, either a song or an instrumental music piece, the structure of a musical piece, or the process of creating or writing a new song or piece of music. People who create new compositions are called composers in classical music. In popular music and traditional music, the creators of new songs are usually called songwriters; with songs, the person who writes new words for a song is the lyricist. "Composition" is the act or practice of creating a song or other piece of music.
Composer is a person who creates or writes music, which can be vocal music (for a singer or choir), instrumental music (e.g., for solo piano, string quartet, wind quintet or orchestra) or music which combines both instruments and voices (e.g., opera or art song, which is a singer accompanied by a pianist). The core meaning of the term refers to individuals who have contributed to the tradition of Western classical music through creation of works expressed in written musical notation.

The National Association for Music Education
Ethnomusicology is the study of music from the cultural and social aspects of the people who make it. It encompasses distinct theoretical and methodical approaches that emphasize cultural, social, material, cognitive, biological, and other dimensions or contexts of musical behavior, instead of only its isolated sound component.

Scientific Reasons for Learning to Play a Musical Instrument

Playing a musical instrument helps builds hand-eye coordination, it helps strengthen math skills through counting notes and rhythms, and learning music theory. Playing a musical instrument improves reading and comprehension skills, and enhances concentration by requiring you to focus on pitch, rhythm, tempo and notes. playing a musical instrument can also benefit your memory.  "Kids who learn how to play musical instruments may have an easier time paying attention and focusing."

Music is a Science.
It is exact, specific; and it demands exact acoustics. A sheet of music is a chart, a graph which indicates frequencies, intensities, volume changes, melody and harmony all at once and with the most exact control of time.

Music is Mathematical.
Rhythm is based on the subdivisions of time into fractions which must be done in one's head, not worked out on paper. Students involvement in instrumental music show higher levels of math proficiency. Music education helps with the development of spatial-temporal reasoning. Highly developed spatial-temporal faculties are imperative for working through solutions to the complex problems in fields such as architecture, engineering, science and, obviously, mathematics

Music is a Foreign Language.
Most of the terms are in Italian, German or French; and the notation is certainly not English but a highly developed kind of shorthand that uses symbols to represent ideas. Music is the most complete and universal language. Music education also does major work on the language-processing parts of our brains. To learn to read, children need to have "good working memory, the ability to disambiguate speech sounds and make quick sound-to-meaning connection.

Music is History.
Music usually reflects the environment and times of its creation, often even the country and / or cultural feeling.

Music is Physical Education.
It requires fantastic coordination of fingers, hands, arms, lip, cheek and facial muscles, in addition to extraordinary control of diaphragmatic, back, stomach, and chest muscles, which respond instantly to the sound the ear hears and the mind interprets.
Music training helps improve cognitive and non-cognitive skills.

Music touches every human being from infancy to adulthood. The power of musical sound can be the vehicle for expression of a wide variety of human emotions. And not only does music move us emotionally, it activates our intellect.

"Music is a excellent vehicle for learning many different things, you're not just teaching music, you're teaching everything in life that's connected to music."

Surgery patients who listen to music may have lower levels of pain and anxiety as well as lower blood pressure and heart rate than people who don't, according to the analysis music was linked to about 31 percent less pain, 29 percent lower odds of using pain medication, and 34 percent less anxiety. Music was tied to 40 percent lower blood pressure and 27 percent lower heart rate.

Have you ever wondered how many Songs have been created?


On Average, there are 50 albums released every week in the United States of America and the United Kingdom.
Thomas Edison invented the phonograph in 1878 but it was always a very poor seller. The first artist to sell serious numbers of records was Frank Sinatra in the 1940 (250,000,000 records in his lifetime), so lets start there. 

Lets also assume that there are 12 songs per album. 50 albums per week * 52 weeks = 2,500 per year.
2500 per year * 69 years = 179,400 unique albums (since 1940)  12 songs * 179,400 albums = 2,152,800 songs
So the average points to about 2,100,000 songs being released in the United States of America and the United Kingdom (and nowhere else) in musical history, give or take a few.  Wiki Answers

Only about 50% of all music created gets published on a CD.

Drop in popular music, especially electronic music styles, is a point in a music track where a switch of rhythm or bass line occurs and usually follows a recognizable build section and break. The term "drop" comes from the composer or producer "dropping in" the primary rhythmic and foundational elements previously hinted at into the mix more or less at once. Related terms, typically describing certain types of drops, include "beat-up" (so named because it is a point where the producer brings up the foundational kick drum beat after having faded it down during a break or buildup) and "climax" (typically describing a single particularly striking drop heard late in the track).

Payola - Pay for Play - Song Pluggers were paid to promote music, which is the illegal practice of payment or other inducement by record companies for the broadcast of recordings on commercial radio in which the song is presented as being part of the normal day's broadcast. Under U.S. law, a radio station can play a specific song in exchange for money, but this must be disclosed on the air as being sponsored airtime, and that play of the song should not be counted as a "regular airplay".
Corporate Control of the Media

Music and songs can have an incredible influence on people so you should be totally aware of this influence. This goes way beyond hidden messages in songs, Backmasking or Hidden Tracks, because just the words and the music themselves can have a strong impact on your behavior. You have to fully understand Media Literacy as well as Human Behavior. Music is a beautiful gift, but music can also become an addiction with side effects. So please listen carefully to the music, but also listen more carefully to your thoughts.

Fame and Popularity Dangers

I love watching documentaries about bands who became really famous. I love how it shows that most people just start out with simple and normal lives. And then one day their abilities come in line with an opportunity of a life time, and just by chance their lives are changed forever. Of course these documentaries never show a complete story, these are only a few particular moments in a persons life, so we have no idea who they are, or who they could have been if their lives would have been different. I myself think it's better to dream about these experiences then to have them come true. Because I would hate to live a dream that I was unable to wake up from, that would suck. But of course you don't have to be famous to be at that crossroad like that, because everyone has to make decisions. And what ever those decisions were, or how bad some of those decisions were, you have to find a way to live through those decisions no matter what, because you are here for a reason, so you have to find that reason, because it may not find you. If you're not looking for it, you may never find it. But be careful where you look, if you're not looking in the right places at the right time, you may find more trouble then success. Remember, life is a double edge sword, but it's your sword, so being dull on one side might be a little safer. But this is your life, not mine.
