  • genre - Everything2.com
    to the Hollywood notion of genre and look at it s method of classification as being of little use Some of those critics look towards the fact that although many genres can overlap and have similar elements there are specific combinations that can perhaps only occur in one particular genre They look at things which genres have in common but also what is different between them trying to use this to classify particular genres This is not an easy thing to do with the level of overlapping that can occur especially when different genres are combined deliberately for example comedy horror Critics also identify the seasonal nature of genres in that for a while some particular genres or mixes become extremely popular This they noted comes in waves and is related to the phenomenon of sequels and waves of popularity of some genres for instance the recent outpouring of fantasy films Looking at Hollywood and film with genres is almost an opposition to the auteur theory with the critics and industry alike looking not for film and authors individuality but for an overall theme and looking for sameness between different films which they categorise into genres They do however tend to only have a limited number of categories with many of the others which we would normally describe being placed as sub genres There are others again who describe genres by how we are likely to respond to them Although we do describe some genres already by their effect this method is describing how directors may use genre as a visual or sub conscious clue when trying to relate some things to the audience To look at the many which in which genre can be seen it is useful to consider one genre in particular and how the above points may be related to it The horror genre is one which is usually not disputed we all know vaguely what to expect from one when we see it The genre has been established since early in the last century around the 1930 s and has many hundreds of examples A horror movie usually follows this very basic plotline instability is introduced into an apparently stable situation the threat to instability is resisted the threat is removed and stability restored Absolute closure threat removed and stability restored is no longer obligatory Andrew Tudor Monsters and Mad Scientists This change illustrates the slow evolution of genre which occurs over all as producers try to change some elements to make the film more interesting or even just to leave the audience with more of a sense of unease The horror genre always has the main antagonist as some sort of monster wether in the literal sense or in the slightly more subtle human monster such as a psychotic murderer There are few other genres which will have this element with perhaps the exception of comedies though those which do are generally classed as comedy horrors In horror there is also usually a mystery

    the Blues had strong rhythmic aspects to their singing long before the advent of hip hop rapping In fact if you go back across the entire history and prehistory of music there is a good chance that melodic singing was the rather late addition Chanted music was probably shared around ancient campfires for thousands and tens of thousands of years before melody became the dominant force in music Which is not to say that the growth of rap technique wasn t gigantic during the Golden Age and Renaissance of Hip Hop It is just that it was just that that cultural tool was picked up by that particular culture as a means of expression The art of rhythmic singing may end up being practiced by a quite different culture or sub culture in the future I like it definition by Webster 1913 Wed Dec 22 1999 at 2 28 11 Rap n Etymol uncertain A lay or skein containing 120 yards of yarn Knight Webster 1913 Rap v i imp p p Rapped p pr vb n Rapping Akin to Sw rappa to strike rapp stroke Dan rap perhaps of imitative origin To strike with a quick sharp blow to knock as to rap on the door Webster 1913 Rap v t 1 To strike with a quick blow to knock on With one great peal they rap the door Prior 2 Founding To free a pattern in a mold by light blows on the pattern so as to facilitate its removal Webster 1913 Rap n A quick smart blow a knock Webster 1913 Rap v t imp p p Rapped usually written Rapt p pr vb n Rapping OE rapen akin to LG D rapen to snatch G raffen Sw rappa cf Dan rappe sig to make haste and Icel hrapa to fall to rush hurry The word has been confused with L rapere to seize Cf Rape robbery Rapture Raff v Ramp v 1 To snatch away to seize and hurry off And through the Greeks and Ilians they rapt The whirring chariot Chapman From Oxford I was rapt by my nephew Sir Edmund Bacon to Redgrove Sir H Wotton 2 To hasten Obs Piers Plowman 3 To seize and bear away as the mind or thoughts to transport out of one s self to affect with ecstasy or rapture as rapt into admiration I m rapt with joy to see my Marcia s tears Addison Rapt into future times the bard begun Pope 4 To exchange to truck Obs Law To rap and ren To rap and rend Perhaps fr Icel hrapa to hurry and raena plunder fr ran plunder E ran To seize and plunder to snatch by violence Dryden Ye waste all that ye may rape and renne Chaucer All they could rap and rend pilfer Hudibras To rap out to utter with sudden violence as an oath A judge who rapped out a great oath Addison Webster 1913 Rap n Perhaps contr fr raparee

    were blues based but some had jazz backgrounds as well A discerning listener might have noticed that many of these guitar ists and organ ists didn t have the chops to solo for minutes on end but if you were stoned or tripping maybe it seemed to work for you the notion of just grooving on the sound had escaped out of the laboratory of musique concrète much as Albert Hofmann s wonder drug had and had reached a generation of listeners who d grown a new pair of lysergic or cannabinoid ears trad notions of the quality of the solo may have gone out the window Gonzo listening perhaps Cream s legend was forged on long loud live soloing from all three members of the group and the long running tradition of the in concert drum solo may have started with Ginger Baker Blame him Maybe a musical reference to India the Holy Land of psychedelic transcendence via the sitar or a sitarish guitar sound If you were really ambitious you d incorporate India s long tradition of improvisation into your jamming the Butterfield Blues Band s East West and The Byrds Eight Miles High Why 45 would be examples of that Decades later this would become a way to make quick parodic reference to hippie dom or the drug culture as No Longer Music a Dutch Christian punk band would in one of their songs the name of which now escapes me Weird Weird came in all shapes and sizes The Syd Barrett version of Pink Floyd who jammed without either blues or jazz roots came up with an accessible form of free improvisation plus their rootlessness made them somewhat prophetic forerunners of similar punk and post punk experimentation Captain Beefheart and his Magic Band once the foremost blueswailing proponents of garage psychedelia would go nuts with the classic Trout Mask Replica and follow that path for most of the remainder of their history More non blues based jamming Soft Machine East of Eden and The Mothers These were jazz based for the most part The Mothers also incorporated theatre satire parody and electronic music A handful of bands were mainly electronic now that hardware was becoming commercially available The Silver Apples for instance Some bands indulged in weirdness for weirdness sake with a song or two that sounded like the ancient drinking songs of the Kalahari peoples reconstructed from some memory buried by whom Cosmo in the composer s newly liberated mind The weirdness aspect is probably the trait that is the least lasting it branched off into other genres like progressive rock and fusion Frank Zappa would become a law unto himself eventually gaining respect as a serious composer And you had the San Francisco bands fueled by acid it was said Acid in their Corn Flakes acid in the Haight Ashbury drinking water and all that The Dead Quicksilver Jefferson Airplane Big Brother and the Holding Company the Steve Miller Band etc They combined all
