Space-based effectors for spreading sounds such as reverb, echo, and delay create the size and condition of the space, etc., and create an “illusion” in the sense of hearing. A space system effector is an effector that simulates the space in which the sound sounds literally by adding various reverberations. The sound changes depending on how you use the space system effector. – Yasuharu Nagura
Music : Classical Studies | Bach
It is said that 1.4% music sales in the U.S. are classical music. It’s not very popular. However, I think it is worth studying classical music from the Bach (1685 ~ 1750) era.
There is a collection of terms that appear in Bach’s collection of piano pieces.
It is my study of classical music.
A minuet is a social dance of French origin for two people, usually in 3/4 times. The word was adapted from Italian minuetto and French menuet, possibly from the French menu meaning slender, small, referring to the very small steps, or from the early 17th-century popular group dances called branle à mener or amener.
The term also describes the musical form that accompanies the dance, which subsequently developed more fully, often with a longer musical form called the minuet and trio, and was much used as a movement in the early classical symphony.
The gavotte is a French dance, taking its name from a folk dance of the Gavot, the people of the Pays de Gap region of Dauphiné in the southeast of France, where the dance originated, according to one source.
According to another reference, however, the word “gavotte” is a generic term for a variety of French folk dances, and most likely originated in Lower Brittany in the west, or possibly Provence in the southeast or the French Basque Country in the southwest of France.
It is notated in 4/4 or 2/2 times and is usually of moderate tempo, though the folk dances also use meters such as 9/8 and 5/8.
Musette (Bal-musette) is a style of French instrumental music and dance that first became popular in Paris in the 1880s.
Although it began with bagpipes as the main instrument, this instrument was replaced with accordion, on which a variety of waltzes, polkas, and other dance styles were played for dances.
A march, as a musical genre, is a piece of music with a strong regular rhythm which in origin was expressly written for marching to and most frequently performed by a military band.
A prelude is a short piece of music, the form of which may vary from piece to piece. The prelude may be thought of as a preface. While, during the Baroque era, for example, it may have served as an introduction to succeeding movements of a work that were usually longer and more complex, it may also have been a stand-alone piece of work during the Romantic era.
It generally features a small number of rhythmic and melodic motifs that recur through the piece. Stylistically, the prelude is improvisatory. The prelude also may refer to an overture, particularly to those seen in an opera or an oratorio.

Music : Jazz Studies
Here are the two main features of jazz.
1) Unlike Western classical music, jazz does not faithfully trace established scores. The performer plays a variation of the melody within the framework of the given harmony. Therefore, it can be said that the performer itself is a composer in a sense. In other words, there is no clear barrier between the composer and the person who interprets it and plays it.
2) The individuality of jazz depends largely on the delicate technique of playing. The essence of jazz is the expression of various performers, including attack, rhythmic strength, intonation, and vibrato.
And the history of jazz cannot be missed without the process of exploring endless harmony. The harmony is built on the tonality framework of major and minor, which was established in the Baroque era (1600-1750). Therefore, any musician must learn the origins of its traditional harmony.
Only then will you be able to sing, accompaniment to performers other than yourself, add harmonies to the melody, and improvise.
Taiwanese Music in Martial Law
Taiwan Ministry of Martial Law
Martial Law was laid in Taiwan on May 20, 1949. It is the beginning of 38 years of martial law. The Security Command has established various regulations to ban unauthorized gatherings, associations, demonstrations, and strikes to ensure stable Taiwan rule.
There are various reasons why popular songs are banned during martial law. “Too much left-wing” is not communist advertising, so it’s not possible. It’s not possible because “too erotic” is also decadent.
It was not possible. The lyrics were “dim” because the people were treated the same. According to government statistics, more than 3,000 songs did not pass the screening, and nearly 1,000 were prohibited from playing in public.
