Make Your First Festival Show Rock! Are you playing your first green-field music festival or outdoor show soon? Not quite sure how it all works on the other side of the 'Artists Only' sign? Don't worry; help is at hand. My name is Andy Reynolds, a concert tour manager & live sound engineer. In this printed, paperback, mini-guide, I will give you my tips on making the most of your first festival slot. I have toured with bands and singers for more than 25 years, and work on loads of open-air, 'green-field' type festivals, such as Glastonbury, Roskilde, Coachella and Bonaroo, each summer. I know how bands can have a good show at a festival - and how they can mess up their chances by not being prepared for that all -important music festival slot. It is very important to your musical career that your festival appearances happen with no hitches, dramas or technical problems. Audiences go to music festivals to see and hear great bands. If they happen to catch you, and you are totally on fire, playing a great set and full of confidence, those people are likely to become fans. There is so much competition at each festival, and every band has that once chance to ignite the crowd, even if they are a well-known and successful act. None of the bands can afford to be ill-prepared or leave things to chance. But you need not worry about any of that - you will hit the stage looking like a pro after reading this book!
Despite the world-wide association of music and dance with religion, this is the first full-length study of the subject from a global perspective. The work consists of 3,816 references divided among 37 chapters. It covers tribal, regional, and global religions and such subjects as shamanism, liturgical dance, healing, and the relationship of music, mathematics, and mysticism. The referenced materials display such diverse approaches as analysis of music and dance, description of context, direct experience, observation, and speculation. The references address topics from such disciplines as sociology, anthropology, history, linguistics, musicology, ethnomusicology, theology, medicine, semiotics, and computer technology.
Chapter 1 consists of general references to religious music and dance. The remaining 36 chapters are organized according to major geographical areas. Most chapters begin with general reference works and bibliographies, then continue with topics specific to the region or religion. This book will be of use to anyone with an interest in music, dance, religion, or culture.
