Francis Scott Flea ~ by Mike Overly

April 14, 2016

FleaApril 13, 2016 was Los Angeles Lakers legend Kobe Bryant’s last game after an illustrious 20-year career. Flea, of the Red Hot Chili Peppers, had this to say: “I look at him as someone like, you know, Charlie Parker or John Coltrane or Jimmy Page or Jimi Hendrix, you know?” Well, after hearing his redition of the National Anthem, I’m not so sure Flea was the right guy for this tribute to Number 24. But, I am sure he needs a copy of Bass EncycloMedia. Let me know what you think in the comments below.

LOW: The Power and Beauty of Bass ~ Presented by Mike Overly

November 19, 2015

LowIn broad acoustic terms, Bass refers to sounds that fall below 262 Hertz on the frequency spectrum. In musical terms it can refer to the instruments that make those low sounds as well as the sounds themselves. Its presence in music is critical. The pulse laid down by the bass is like an engine. A whole band will move or not move depending on the actions of the bass. And the notes played in the bassline are like a compass. The lowest sounding pitch can help us find true north, or the harmony of the music.

From November 8, 2015 through July 31, 2016, the Museum of Making Music will introduces several aspects of the low register ~ bass ~ experience. This exhibition will encourage visitors to SEE, HEAR, and FEEL low sound by engaging them with different interactives. It is hoped that this exhibition will open your eyes, ears and imagination to this sonic realm, and to inspire you to incorporate this new awareness into your everyday activities . . . https://www.museumofmakingmusic.org/exhibits/upcoming/2578-low
