  • Disc Jockey Buissness - 1,221 words
    Disc Jockey Buissness I have been in the disc jockey business since I was fifteen years old, I own many different sets of equiptment and have been to conventions were the new lines are presented. I also work for Pioneer as a company dj representative so I know their line like the back of my hand.

  • Beat Matching - 862 words
    Beat Matching Everyone has seen or heard a DJ perform at some point in their life. The type of disc jockey I am referring to isnt a radio DJ that just plays songs for people to listen to. I am referring to what is best know as a "club" DJ; one that uses two turntables and a mixer. Most people dont even pay attention to what exactly the DJ is doing behind the turntables; and to tell the truth most people dont care. The final product produced is good music that is blended together to make a continuous mix of music. It is not a very easy process to accomplish even though everyone thinks that it is easy and that anyone can do it. The process that a DJ goes through when they are mixing is a proce ...

  • Raving Is A Lifestyle - 1,381 words
    Raving Is A Lifestyle Raving Is a Lifestyle. One of the most rapidly expanding scenes in the world is raving. The dictionary defines Rave as To utter in madness or frenzy; to say wildly; as, to rave nonsense, which makes you wonder why raves were ever called raves to begin with, unless of course you have been to one. I will never forget my first experience at a rave. Media portrays Raves as cesspools of filth, sex and drugs, so naturally I was very nervous about attending my first party. We sit in a circle inside the party with the lights and music assailing my senses and take out the pills. I stare at mine and sweat nervously. I have never really done drugs before, and I am going to put a p ...

  • Reports Of Ww - 785 words
    Reports Of Ww2 Persuasive Paper The assigned reading was for the most part the telling of soldiers stories, whether they told of the stories they'd had or the story they were currently taking part in. As a whole they weren't looking to sway my opinion in any particular direction regarding the war, just describe the situation. The first piece of writing that I found persuasive came from I. F. Stone, a writer for The Nation who was stationed behind a desk in Washington instead of behind a bunker at the time of the war. I mention the fact that he was a desk jockey because it was something I took personally when reading of the heroics of the reporter writing from the front lines. I said to mysel ...

Tannhuser did quite well in Dresden in 1845 but Wagner's real troubles with the work began in 1861, at the Paris Opra. During the second performance members of the local Jockey Club, who used to arrive late at the opera house, started a riot because they had missed the splendors of the ballet at the beginning of the first act; they were joined by a large group who were opposed to Wagner. After the third performance, he withdrew the work. Lohengrin too had mixed reception. Wagner wrote it backwards starting with the third act ...

I chose to do Rock music because I can identify myself with it. Rock music is very complex.
