The classical concert started at 8:00pm to the enjoyment of the huge audience that had been waiting for this amazing music extravaganza.

The transition was dolce and soft for a while, then it played faster and faster with louder sound till the ending theme.

- Pop music has long been defined by “idols” and superstars that are subjects of high levels of adoration from severely devoted fans, whose love of these superstars often blurs the line between fandom and obsession. This love is mainly based off of physical looks and charm more often than actual musical talent, as majority of the songs written by these massive superstars are not written by the artists themselves, instead by people hired to write for these artists in a way that will best connect with a crowd willing to spend their money on these manufactured stars....

- ... Tim only used his acoustic guitar and a Guitar Multi Effects Pedal throughout his performance. The songs that were played in his performance were; Gentle Giant, At the Lion’s Gate, and Eyes Link. Gentle Giant was in a strophic form which was pretty much sung in the same tune, with a slow tempo. I really enjoyed the lyrics of this song, because it had a laid back style. At the Lion’s Gate was more of a fiddle tune so it consisted of both low strain with a deeper sound and high strain. The type of music I think best fits with his songs is soft rock and specific style is indie folk.... [tags: Music, Performance, The Band, Performing arts]
