The Absolute Beginner’s Guide to Singing Apps Vol.1

So I am an iPhone user and I have been using a few apps for my singing that I find very useful. They re great for quick warm-ups before gigs and practise and also great to keep your vocal cords battle ready. The first one that I wanted to talk about is called Warm Me Up. This is actually the first app that I started using and it is absolutely brilliant. You have a few different options to customise your preferences. Warm Me Up!: The app generates a warm up session for you. You can chose how long you want your warm up to last. My Warm Ups: mix and match your favourite exercises and create your own routine. Browse Exercises: Chose from Gentle Start, Getting Warmer, Extending The Range, Mouth Workout, Tuned Up. Every section has a unique set of exercises to choose from. In settings, you can adjust your exercises to fit your range. Low/High female and Low/High male. I tried a few different apps and this is a feature that would have been expected but unfortunately not all apps have it wh

Why the World Would End Without Symmetry (and song structures)

Everything around us has some sort of structure. Nothing in this world exists without a shape or a pattern. The whole world as we know it would end. In fact, there s this magical number: 1.6180339887 and it has been given a few names. Golden Ratio, Golden Mean, Divine Proportion, Fibonacci numbers and can be found in art, music, architecture, the human body and nature. It is literally beauty translated into math; Read more about it here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Golden_ratio (Opens link in a new window/tab) The tree leaves, water, rocks, the solar system, our machines, computers, are all following patterns of all sorts of mathematical shapes and equations. Form and Structure in Music The fundamentals of our musical system is related to the patterns that occur from the Golden ratio: Musical scales are related to Fibonacci numbers. (Gary Meisner) The Fibonacci series appears in the foundation of aspects of art, beauty and life. Even music has a foundation in the series, as: Ther

What Would the World Be Like If These 10 Music Quotes Didn’t Exist

A 10 picture collection of some of the greatest quotes about music out there. Well not really it is pretty difficult to choose just 10 out of all of the music quotes in this world but hey Pictures are all made by me. Enjoy! Quote no 1: A painter paints his pictures on canvas. But musicians paint their pictures on silence. We provide the music, and you provide the silence. Leopold Stokowski Quote no.2 Music is the great uniter. An incredible force. Something that people who differ on everything and anything else can have in common Sarah Dessen Quote no 3. Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination and life to everything. Plato Quote no. 4 A mind is like a parachute. It doesn t work if it is not open. Frank Zappa Quote no. 5 If being an egomaniac means I believe in what I do and in my art or music, then in that respect you can call me that I believe in what I do, and I ll say it. ― John Lennon Quote no. 6 Music is always changing and the chan

“Choosing your notes and creating a melody line is a very personal thing”

Melody is a very important chapter in songwriting but choosing your notes and creating a melody line is a very personal thing. The process and method are different for every individual. Some techniques work for some and some not for others so here I am just going to talk about my experience and my own ways of coming up with melody. 1) First and foremost. The old dictaphone, which can now be replaced by your phone s recording app. Ideas can come from anywhere at anytime. Always be ready to record. A few years ago this used to be an everyday practise for me. I would come up with some melodies, record and then keep them in the library. By doing this you have at your disposal a great collection of ideas to experiment and work with and really helps you next time you sit at your instrument to songwrite. 2) Singing arpeggios. Finding your song theme by singing gives you the advantage of creating lines that fit the limitations of the human voice, melodic lines that are perfectly singable (we

What’s Common Between Music & A McDonald’s Cheeseburger?

A 2014 musician who writes his or her own music and wants to take things to the next level has to be much more than just a musician to achieve goals. A modern musician needs to be, or to become an entrepreneur. Ideally, it would be super essential to know the basics about websites, HTML and how to manage Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, YouTube other social media websites and understand the fundamentals of social media marketing. (Note that I m not talking about becoming a sales person here. I m talking about engaging your audience and building a relationship. This is a huge difference). Music is so widely available these days, and the fact that the majority of music releases come from independent artists and not from labels means that: a) the record industry is promoting mainly commercial music b) they do not take risks signing new music c) an independent artist is on his or her own. A lot of musicians are still dreaming of a fat, juicy, super amazing and extra-fantastic record deal bu

How Nostradamus Predicted the Death of Facebook Pages. No, Really.

You liked the E-Mute Facebook page and we are grateful. but Nostradamus was right after all. Facebook pages are dead. The problem is that with the new Facebook policies the posts do not reach you. You have to hover over the world like and then click on the get notifications button. Check out the embedded Facebook post bellow with exact instructions on how to do it. When the Facebook pages were first introduced it was a great new feature for anyone who wanted to put the word out about anything. Facebook themselves were promoting the new feature, the pages became very popular and everyone was happy. The Facebook team then decided to introduce a new feature. Advertising your Facebook page to get more likes. You had the option to target an audience that would be the perfect fit for your page by interest-based advertising. People who had before liked pages similar to yours. This was great for both sides. But the latest new update was pretty much horrible and transformed the best (the

”Oh Woh! A Post Box!” Finding The Right Balance Between Stick & Surface.

The first red post boxes In Britain were installed in Botchergate, Carlisle in 1853. In 1856, Richard Redgrave of the Department of Science and Art designed an ornate pillar box for use in London and other large cities. In 1859 the design was improved, and this became the first National Standard pillar box. Green was adopted as the standard colour for the early Victorian post boxes. Between 1866 and 1879 the hexagonal Penfold post box became the standard design for pillar boxes and it was during this period that red was first adopted as the standard colour. The first boxes to be painted red were in London in July 1874, although it would be nearly 10 years before all the boxes had been repainted. In 2012 to celebrate Olympic gold medals for Team GB, selected boxes are painted gold. One has been vandalised briefly with graffiti, and one of the old red boxes at Dean Street was recently vandalised by E-MUTE as he decided to do some street drumming on it. This is the second video of the se
