In my life away from Coast Gab, I'm a musicology professor, so this thread has been my cup of tea. Here are the artists of the last two concerts I saw:




San Antonio has a unique treasure in the Carver Community Cultural Center, where I saw these amazing performers.

My specialty is ethnomusicology, so I listen to much of what is called "world" music - sort of a catch all for anything outside the mainstream. One of my current favorites is the Idan Raichel Project:

Ever seen "Hardware"?

Do you mean the 1990 movie with Dylan McDermott?  If so, I have to tell you. I wanted to see that movie and dragged my wife with me... to this day she lets me know how bad it was.

IMDb Video Player: Hardware

I am probably making a leap but if we are going to point to favorite movie/music this is my favorite:

Sounds like an intriguing career. Do you also play musical instruments?

Yes, I do. Musicology is like any music degree in that one must declare a principal (and, usually, a secondary) instrument. I am a Voice principal with piano, harp, uillean and Highland pipes, tin whistle, recorder, trumpet, oboe, English Horn and a smattering of others as secondaries (yeah, it's a weird list). Of course, musicology is basically analysis of musical structures, so we always end up teaching Theory & Composition and the Music Appreciation courses (not that I mind).

Unfortunately, academic composition is very trendy, and currently, everyone is striving to become the next "ground-breaking" John Cage or George Crumb. I think the ground of orchestral composition has mostly shifted to the movies (as inspired by Philip Glass as they may be), although many movies don't live up to their soundtracks:

forgive me for saying this Avi, but 'musicology' really sounds like a noorism  :D

Proof that George has been body-snatched: he doesn't seem to have a musical groove.

Music ad creates lulz.

Can't link because of mobile browsing, but Jay-Z's Dead Presidents II. My pants literally dropped from the weight of excrements exiting my body as a result of undeniable awesomery.

Some of you are sharing good songs, but do a preview please please. The record companies are not allowing remote viewing LOL i.e. songs are on restricted playback.

How is this done?  I thought the only options on the Youtube side were embed vs. no embed.  When I posted, I just used the direct "/watch?..." URL's with Coastgab's URL tag.  If there is a preferred method, I'll try it with the next one.
