arabian freak

Arab music tradition is the urban-based music of the eastern Mediterranean region ranging from Cairo to Beirut, Damascus and Aleppo. This music consists predominantly of precomposed songs that is, pieces in which a composer has determined the form and content of the music to be performed. With such a repertoire, the musician's role is that of interpreter, charged with artistically rendering someone else's creation. The Arab instrumentalist is, however, accorded the opportunity to improvise his own creations in a genre called taqasim (singular and plural in this usage). Individual taqasim are not simply free-formed products of the instrumentalist's fancy; instead, the instrumentalist improvises according to a complex set of preestablished rules and conventions. Because taqasim gives the instrumentalist the opportunity to present his own creation rather than rely on another's composition, it is a highly valued musical genre. > > Enta Omri TREMENDOUS


-He cried in a whisper at some image, at some vision—he cried out twice, a cry that was no more than a breath—"The horror! The horror!"- ...and suddenly primary colours by the horrors makes an over-used and boring neo-genre sound exciting again.Well done boys! This is the >>New Ice Age!

Yeah...I'm back. I had too much work these days plus I was moving houses at the time and I guess that explains partly the more than 3-weeks blog silence (I'm living the ikea nightmare people!!). The real reason though that I wasn't too much in the mood to post something here was that I haven't been able to get in touch with any interesting music lately and that made the idea of a post or a mix somehow difficult. The last couple of days good tunes are coming again my way and of course I'll share a piece. >>stick to the formula ps. the hidden story of my absence is that almost simultaneously I got a serious fixation with both the true blood and supernatural series. That was enough to make me a tv junkie and too bored to do anything else...
