Presentation history of music

  1. 1. History of R&B music videos
  2. 2. History of R&B Rhythm and Blues are a uniquely American sound found nowhere else in the world. Even now, after mass media has spread the sounds of R&B all over the world there's still nothing quite like it. The peculiar qualities come from the uncomfortable blending of two cultures which are African and American. The Africans already had a sense of rhythm. Drum beats had been a part of their communications, their celebrations and their lives dating back to antiquity. Tribal dances had many purposes but their group gyrations bore the seeds of modern dances.
  3. 3. Pioneers in the field R&B Pioneers Honored at Annual Awards, The Rhythm & Blues Foundations 11th annual Pioneer Awards were held in New York's Hammerstein Ballroom. The Foundation, which supports seminal R&B artists with cash grants, some honored BMI writers The Chi-Lites, The Impressions, Huey "Piano" Smith, Sylvia Robinson and Ahmet Ertegun. Queen of Soul, Aretha Franklin not only presented one of the awards, she pledged $50,000 into the organization.
  4. 4. What is the purpose of a music video? A music video is a short film or video that accompanies an artist’s piece of music. These videos are used as tools for marketing to promote their signature style of music. Music videos really took off during the 1980’s due to MTV despite beginning much sooner. MTV is the mutual network known for bringing music videos together and making them popular. Music videos tend to use a variety of film techniques such as, animations lighting and incorporating certain concepts to reach a wider audience and potentially establish a fan base in the process. Not many music videos tend to follow Goodwin’s theory about the song always having to be literal in accordance with the lyrics and the visuals shown in video, not in the modern videos produced today anyway.
