Rock and roll started off as a genre of music in the 1950s and has developed into many different types of music throughout the generations. This type of music can create different types of feels and moods depending on the type of rock you’re listening to. As a generation, we have steered away from rock music and focus much more on pop music created by a computer. The beauty of rock music is that it can as well be mixed in by other genres of music, such as blues and folk. Lyrics of rock generally stress romantic love and positivity. Today’s music tends to focus more on bragging and the sadness in the world. Going back to the type of music our parents and even grandparents learned to love and enjoy should come back into style because it could create a happier feel to the music and art in today’s world. There should be some type of change in the music we listen to today because it could have an influence on people’s feelings since music is something people turn to for various reasons. My parents talk about artists such as The Beatles and Aerosmith and reflect on the joy they used to have listening to their music growing up and even going to different rock concerts. To this day, putting a Beatles song on brings joy to both of my parents and unfortunately I don’t think it will be the same feeling for my generation since music isn’t the same anymore. It will most likely make me reflect on more sad times instead of happy. Two of the most popular and well known artists today are Post Malone and Billie Eilish, both making music that is pretty dark and depressing which influences the people who enjoy listening to their music. As a way to avoid this, I and many of the people I know listen to old rock music instead of the music that’s created today to create more happiness.
You are able to make a toon with any sort of sound you can make. From typing on a keyboard, to scratching your hands on a table, to using your own vocals you are able to create your own unique sound that nobody else can recreate. Humans have learned throughout the years how to make music into something sad or happy through the movement and tone of the music they are making.
One of the most interesting types of music forms that has recently started is acapella. Acapella is when you create music with no instruments at all, just using your vocals. This means variations of the group have to beatbox, use their voices to replicate a piano or a guitar, and use their voices to sing the lyrics. Acapella has changed the music game for many artists. It’s challenging to recreate the sound an instrument makes with your own mouth, but some artists can do this very successfully and I believe this is one of the best ways to show off your talent.
This sound purely exists for entertainment and is supposed to be done by a group of people. Lots of people enjoy listening to acapella since it’s such a hard form of music to complete. There have been movies made about acapella, one of the most popular being Pitch Perfect. This movie helped influence the popularity that has grown around this form of music throughout the past few years.
I think throughout the rest of our lives and onto new generations the art of acapella will only be able to expand more. As time advances, the sound in songs is becoming more advanced because people are purely using technology to create noise, and the more technology in songs the harder it is to create that noise with your mouth. Being able to replicate music with your vocals proves a certain talent that not all people are able to do.
