Kind Of Interesting

You've all heard this drum snippet in countless shows, commercials, and ads... It's called the "world's most important 6-sec drum loop" (lol!).

This video from  Nate Harrison (see the link) narrates the history of the"Amen Break," a six-second drum sample from the b-side of achart-topping single from 1969. This sample was used extensively inearly hiphop and sample-based music, and became the basis fordrum-and-bass and jungle music -- a six-second clip that spawnedseveral entire subcultures. Nate Harrison's 2004 video is a cool look at the ownership of culture, the nature of art and creativity, and thehistory of a remarkable music clip.

(Of course, then again, maybe I'm the only one that thinks this is kinda neat. Wouldn't be the first time...  -tb)
The real trouble with reality is that there's no background music.

P.C.

I think it's neat.   Anything music is good.

Only slightly related, is something called 'The Diamond Affect'.  They've actually done studies about how the beat and/or rhythm of music actually causes our hearts to beat differently or pattern itself to the beat.  Certain music can slow our heartbeats and blood pressure. [/DIV]The order of music has its effects too, but more on our brain than our heart.  Our mind performs better when listening to mucic with a specific order (can't remember what music does what, mind you).

Repetition in music can cause a feeling of anger or for the mind to simply shut down or shut out.  It even has an effect on our strength or weakness, muscularly. There's a ton more results from this study that are pretty interesting.  [img style="CURSOR: pointer" onclick=url(this.src); src="http://www.cheesebuerger.de/images/smilie/musik/d040.gif" border=0]      [H3][FONT face=Arial,Helvetica][FONT color=#33ccff][/FONT][/FONT] [/H3]
Sir Isaac Newton invented the swinging door....for the convenience of his cat.
