Another other consideration is family pressure. I feel it hard to leave behind my mom and dad without being condemned as a selfish bastard...

Being condemned is what happens any time you let people condemn you.
The question is: would you condemn yourself?

Yes, more or less. But I get your point, a man's heart will never be complete if he can't live a life that he deemed to be meaningful.

However, every big change need some preparation. I'd have to say I am not ready now.

Metal / Re: Question about metal as a multiculture
« on: June 04, 2012, 05:37:01 AM »
Attempt to answer the question, which I think is an interesting one.

-From a genealogical point of view, metal as an art form is rooted in Europe.
-Content-wise, it has its obvious precursors in Antiquity and Romanticism.
-But in this regard, the typical warlike spirit of metal is an atavism, whose essence is probably found in any societies' cultural expression as well- at some point in time.
-Present day, the cultural relevance of metal probably extends to wherever society decayed to the point of self-destruction, a tendency to which metal is a reaction.

Quote
Indeed, in a pluralistic society I think elective cultures such as those that surround styles of music like heavy metal are, if anything, more legitimate than other forms.
They show our capacity to build our cultural frameworks out of the things that matter most to us rather than simply accept what has been foreordained as having value.
Article

So i'd say metal is not an 'established multiculture', but an elective culture (/second nature), in which participation isn't restricted by geography/ethnicity beforehand.

Thank you so much,great post indeed.

Death metal can be appreciated by a diverse group of species.

Sorry sir,appreciate is one thing,but values and goals can be shared among specific people,that is to say culture is another.

Well for starters, "European" is a very wide group. Finns and Spaniards have next to nothing in common but are both European.

But what about Chinese or Koreans?

Metal / Question about metal as a multiculture
« on: May 27, 2012, 09:32:40 AM »
If metal is rooted in ancient European culture,then how could it be established as a multiculture?

This is a question I'd like to ask Conservationist or other the leaders of this forum.

Metal / the term "classical music" did not exist until 1930s
« on: July 03, 2010, 04:18:46 PM »
Quote:
“In the history of the music we now call "classical," new music was in fact the norm until at least the first third of the 19th century. Before that -- in Mozart's time, for instance -- hardly anyone performed old music. Yes, a few musty connoisseurs remembered Bach and Handel, but everybody else liked newer stuff. They all played new string quartets at home, and went out to see the latest operas.
   This didn't change until the 1830s, give or take a decade, when emerging groups of high-culture sophisticates began actively to perform the music of the past. And this, I suspect, is where our problem started -- with the idea that "classical music" (a term that never existed in Bach's or Mozart's day) was something special and privileged, something far loftier than any music we'd normally hear in our everyday lives. As the 19th century progressed, more and more old music got played, until by around 1870 it found a home in the deepest heart of musical life.
   But even then new music didn't stand apart in any special way. You can see that very clearly if you read music critics of the time. Take George Bernard Shaw, who reviewed concerts in the 1890s. He wrote about the Brahms Requiem, about new works by Verdi, Dvorak, and Grieg, about an absurdly hyped new opera called Cavalleria rusticana, and about premieres by Massenet and Tchaikovsky (along, of course, with pieces by composers we don't remember anymore). But -- except in the special case of Wagner, whom he loved, but who, even a decade after his death, still sounded startling to many people -- Shaw never talked about new music as if it was any problem for him or anybody else. He liked some of it; some of it (most notoriously, anything by Brahms), he didn't like. But he wrote like someone in our age going to the movies; nothing he reviewed got treated specially simply because it was new.”

 In my opinion,this article‘s proposition of the recovery of classical music is defective,but this paragraph is really helpful for my studying of classical music.

These links will take you to a page by guitar composers and will contain both MIDI files and sheet music. This list is by no means exhaustive but it is a good place to start.

Paganini, Nicolo
Sor, Fernando
Tárrega, Francisco
Weiss, Sylvius Leopold

Thanks for your contribution man.
