Nadel Paris A Recording Artist, Nusician, Music Producer, Songwriter, Dancer, Published Author, Screenwriter Wed, 21 Nov 2018 11:40:13 +0000 en-US hourly 1 Music Performance Etiquette Discussed by Nadel Paris Wed, 21 Nov 2018 11:40:13 +0000 nadelparis Continue reading ]]> This is a short list of some things all performing groups should strive to do when sharing the stage with another band. When my band opened for a larger group a few months ago, we didn’t realize the other group didn’t have the same on-stage manners we did. Here are some tips EDM artist Nadel Paris came up with in the aftermath of her gig.


1) Introduce yourselves prior to the show if you don’t already know each other. Chat it up – get to know one another. The business of music is much like any other business – relationships matter.


2) Stick around for the other group’s set. For starters, if you’re in a small venue, it helps to fill the place up. Secondly, it’s just plain rude to leave, and thirdly, you avoid embarrassing yourself by showing up only for your set and then not being able to comment about the other band during your set (if they happen to play before you). If they’re playing after you, it’s also prudent to stick around and listen. They will notice, the audience will notice, and the venue staff will notice. And heck, they might be really good, too. Finally, you may learn something about them, which could save you some embarrassment due to ignorance down the line


3) This is really an add-on to the last point. If you have friends coming to see you, encourage them to stick around for the other groups too. They’ll hear some great music and playing for a bigger audience is considerably more satisfying than just playing for the venue staff and the sound guy.


4) Make sure you’re actually performance ready. By that mean well rehearsed.


5) Finally, acknowledge the other group. ESPECIALLY if they have opened for you. They are a huge asset to you, either way. Other performers bring other audience members who may just like your music too, which means your fan base just got that much bigger.

Ever Wonder About Your Favorite Electronic Music Genre? Tue, 13 Nov 2018 10:13:27 +0000 nadelparis Continue reading ]]> Welcome into the fascinating world of electronic music! Have you ever heard a genre of electronic music and thought “wow, I really like this and want to know more!”?


There are most likely more genres of electronic music than you can imagine! House Music, Techno, Trance, D&B, Electronica, Hardcore, Disco and several others. And here we are just listing the major genres, which typically have several smaller genres, also called sub-genres.


In this article, Nadel Paris an EDM artist talks about some of the neat and interesting facts about some of the most popular genres out there.


How about we start off with my favorite genre: Trance! Trance is one of the most melodic and upbeat genres out there. It can make you feel euphoric and just plain happy. But depending on the artist’s desire, it can also make you sad, and perhaps even turn the philosopher’s side of your mind on! Trance is a very powerful genre and can have many effects on the mind.


Did you know, when Trance first came out, it was actually used to put people into a state of trance? Music like this however is no longer being produced. It originated out of Germany during the early 1990s. That’s where the first trance sounds could be heard.


Another one of my favorite genres is House music! Now, you’ve all heard of disco, right? Well, house derived from that, or in another way, it evolved from it. House music has many of the same qualities as disco music, keeping the 4/4 pattern, many of the same basslines and its danceable groove.


House came into being during the early 1980s; right after disco went under due to the “Disco Demolition Night” in the United States at the end of the 1970s. The mayor of Chicago name August 10th 2005 “House Unity Day” in memorization of the first house record label created 21 years before this date.


Do you know a genre that can really kick your socks off? That’s right, Hardcore! Hardcore music can come in several different shape and sounds, but one thing they all have in common in the fast, energetic feel to them. Most genres of hardcore music have a tempo of 160-180 beats per minute, making this the fastest major genre around.


One of the more interesting aspects of this music is that, with the amount of sub-genres hardcore has; it can really take on a lot of different forms. Happy Hardcore for example is fast and heavy, but gives a feeling of happiness and warmth. Darkcore on the other hand is the complete opposite, when it comes to the feeling of the music, giving off an angry, dark atmosphere.


Another popular one is Ambient. Ambient is like no other genre of electronic music. It’s one that is quite interesting, to say the least. In this genre, the producers seek atmosphere, not dance-quality. For this reason, most forms of Ambient will have nearly no form or structure, no steady pattern or percussion.


Field recordings are also an interesting and usually necessary part of Ambient. It’s where producers go outside to a place they want to capture the essence of, and record the nature, and all of its sounds. This is one of the earliest genres of electronic music, having been created during the early parts of the 1970s in the United Kingdom.

Well, there you have it, just a few genres of electronic music. Hope you liked it.

Improving Your Singing X Factor Thu, 26 Jul 2018 11:43:55 +0000 nadelparis Continue reading ]]> Here are seven quick and easy top tips and suggestions by Nadel Paris and EDM artist to improve your Singing X Factor.


1) Correct posture is essential. You need to be standing up straight with your feet firmly planted on the floor; imagine roots growing out from the soles of your feet into the bowels of the earth so that you are properly grounded. Equally you need to be connected to divine inspiration and able to bring that down to earth so think of a cord of light reaching from the top of your head into heavens and the sky above.


2) You need to gently warm your voice up and then take yourself all the way in a training session once on the day of the performance before the gig itself so that you are properly warmed up and firing on all cylinders for your performance but not tired from over singing.


3) Correct vocal training over time is crucial ingredient in developing your singing X factor. Just like an athlete who has to train their muscles and body for their chosen sport, singers have to train their body to sing. This usually entails vocal exercises that are repeated often for years to train the body to create the best sound it can.


4) Knowing your material inside out, upside down, backward and forwards utterly and completely as if it has become a part of your body like your right arm is going to help you deliver a convincing performance. It is estimated that we loose 100% in performance which means we need to go in with 200 %.


5) Singing with total and utter authenticity and truth will cut through the bullshit and give your performance power. One of the factors that lead to STAR quality is how truthful a performer is.


6) Stage craft includes knowing where to look; knowing how to hold your hands and body; which part of the song is the climax and exactly what your song is saying; the message and mood of your songs are all aspects of stage craft which is part of your preparation in learning your material.


7) We all need somebody to report to on a regular basis as we work on the points above. By this it means finding a good singing teacher or vocal coach and having regular singing lessons, whether it is with an individual voice teacher or on singing courses. It is very difficult to be objective about our own performance and even well established professionals working in the music business have a personal singing coach to help them develop their performance and offer an outside opinion on what they are doing. Working with professional help will speed up the learning process and help you master these points. It is also more fun and less lonely.


If you follow these tips Nadel Paris you will feel much more confident about your singing and your performing. This will help to release the Singing X Factor in you.

Nadel Paris Explains How To Preserve Good Singing Voice Wed, 04 Jul 2018 11:52:54 +0000 nadelparis Continue reading ]]> Good professional singers not only have to be fit and healthy to look good for stage performances, they must also know how to maintain and preserve a good singing voice.


You have only one voice and when your voice is damaged permanently, it will probably spell the end of a singer’s. Many singers who have not been through professional singing coaching by good singing coaches or attend any singing schools may not even know that they may be damaging their voice.


Many singers also forget that when their singing voice does not feel right and they are not singing effortlessly as they should be, they will have a tendency to compensate with bad and un-healthy singing habits. These newly created or old bad habits may become stuck unconsciously and will have to be unlearned with the right vocal exercises. That is if the singer is aware that such habits are already in existence in the first place.


There are many things you can do to damage your singing voice and sometimes the damage will lead to permanent damage to your vocal chords. Here are some examples outlined by Nadel Paris of what can harm your voice and there are many more.


  • Constant screaming or talking forcefully all the time. This happens very often if you are singing in a night club environment where you have to speak above the din to be heard. Making funny voices maybe cute, but you may be doing terrible damages to your vocal folds.
  • Dry air and/or not enough water consumption will dry up your larynx and thus placing too much friction on them. 
  • Poor diet, lack of sleep, stress will place more tolls on your body and your singing mechanism.
  • Caffeine consumption, alcohol consumption, smoking will also damage your voice.
  • Talking, singing or whispering when you have laryngitis or sore throat. You need to rest your voice when you have a sore throat.


True professional singers must spend a lifetime working to minimize the stresses on their voices. Why should they want to destroy their singing career by being ignorant about what these bad habits can do to their singing?


What is more, if the voice is damaged because of frequent abuse and polyps grow on the larynx, they may even need to go for a surgery to remove the polyps. That will mean income and avoidable medical expenses. So you must preserve and maintain a healthy singing voice if you want to have a successful singing career.

Why Singers Must Conduct Band Sound Check? Sat, 16 Jun 2018 11:41:24 +0000 nadelparis Continue reading ]]> When your band and you as the lead singer use electronic musical instruments such as the electric guitar, electric bass or the microphone etc, conducting a sound check is necessary to balance the sound of the instruments and your voice.


Your band members will sound check their own instruments and their systems such as the monitor first and then you, the singer or the vocal section will do your own sound check last once the sound system for the musical instruments are already well balanced. Sound check in this sequence will enable you to hear how you sound when you are actually singing with your band.


At the sound check, make sure that your microphone is free from its stand if you want to move around or dance during your singing performance. Also ask the sound equipment technicians for a monitor to be placed in front of you so that you can hear yourself sing. If you can get your hands on a pair of sound monitor earpiece, that will be better because this will give you more room to prance around and entertain your audience and fans.


How to sound check the singer’s microphone?


Your singing voice when produced by the microphone should be louder and above the sounds produced by the band so that your voice can carry the songs well and able to portray your feel, song interpretation and emotions clearly. Sometimes, this may result in loud feed backs (that loud piercing screeching sound produced by the microphone) so much so that your sound technician or yourself must know where the maximum volume can be before the irritating screeching feedback occurs. The sound technician should mark this threshold on his sound board control.


During the crescendo parts of songs, move away from the microphone so that you do not trigger feedback and move back in again during the softer part of the songs. By doing this, you are not only able to control feed backs, you will also not irritate sensitive audience who may not enjoy loud singing. On the other hand, when the singing is soft and you are far away from your audience, they may not be able to make out what you are singing and that is why you need to move closer to the microphone when the interpretation of the song calls for you to sing softly.


It is important to watch out for consonants or lyrics beginning with ‘P’s and ‘B’s. When you are singing loudly into the microphone, these consonants may cause explosive pop pop sounds on the microphone. If you think ‘M’, you will be able to prevent ‘please’ and ‘baby’ exploding out of the speakers.


The final sound check


At the end of the sound check session, you and your band must run through a couple of songs. This is done not only because you want to hear whether the sound is good from the audience perspective but also whether all your band members can hear themselves, the band as a whole and sound from their monitors.

American Influence Of Jazz Music Fri, 01 Jun 2018 12:01:47 +0000 nadelparis Continue reading ]]> The Jazz music sensation began to rub off on other parts of the world which encourages the experimentation of melding their familiar sounds with the essence of Jazz. In Europe’s country in the Region of France came the Quintette Du Hot Club de France who was responsible for the making of the early “Gypsy Jazz”.


The Belgian guitarist Django Reinhardt created gypsy jazz by mixing the style of French Musette which was used in the dance halls, eastern European Folk known as Jazz Manouche, and American swing of the 1930′s. The sound was developed by instruments from the string family which are a steel string guitar, violin, and an upright bass. The atmosphere of the Jazz music is seductive with sudden unpredictable twists, and accelerating rhythms. The French artist Bireli Lagrene plays this unique music with old elements of the past.


Another style of Jazz music that allowed the musicians to express themselves freely was the invention of Avant-garde or free Jazz music. Both of these styles stemmed from the Bebop era, yet produced a relaxed form of harmonic and rhythmic music in the 1940′s and 1950′s. The musicians John Coltrane, Dewey Redman, Charles Mingus, Sun Ra, Sam Rivers, Ornette Coleman and many more were the creators of the free Jazz music. Between the 1960′s and 1970′s the Latin musicians created the Afro-Cuban and Brazilian Jazz Music styles after Bebop musicians Dizzy Gillespie and Billy Taylor cultivated it.


Gillespie and Taylor were influenced by the music of Cuban and Puerto Rican musicians Chico O’farrill, Tito Puente, Chano Pozo, Xavier Cugat, Mario Bauza and Arturo Sandoval. Jazz music expressed in a Latin interpretation was termed Bossa Nova with origins in Samba music which is a mixture of Jazz, classical and pop music from the 20th century. Bossa is a moderate sound of music with Classical harmonic structure from Europe, Samba polyrhythm’s from Brazil and cool music. The tempo of such a work is about 120 beats per minute. The instruments used in this particular sound is nylon stringed guitar, piano, high hat tap of eighths, tapping on the rim of the drum like Sade’s “Sweetest Taboo”, and a vocalist. The sound produced is a new relaxing sound where the acoustic sound of the guitar can lull one to sleep with it’s easy melodic line.


Joao Gilberto and Antonio Carlos Jobim became popular in the sixties with this style of music. The influence of Jazz music returned to the place of its origins in the religious music known as Urban Contemporary Gospel from the spirituals music. Much of spiritual music sung by southern slaves in the past has a haunting dark and mournful sound during the 1800 and 1900′s. The churches know as the sanctified or holy churches took a more happier approach by encouraging member to sing speak their personal testimonies as they celebrated with song and dance.


The sanctified artist Arizona Dranes who was a traveling pastor made recordings that would fit in many musical categories such as blues, and boogie-woogie with the use of Jazz instruments. At the time the Jazz instruments used with religious themed music were percussion and brass instruments.

The Northern Soul Music from England Tue, 15 May 2018 09:44:18 +0000 nadelparis Continue reading ]]> Northern Soul originated in 1960’s from northern England. They are the fanciest music and dance styles during that period. The Northern Soul got its name from the creative mind of a journalist named Dave Godin in one of his column in the magazine called Blues and Soul. The big part of Northern Souls original supporter arises from the mod movement. It is created out of their deep passion and appreciation of soul music. Time made quite a few changes when several mods accept the psychedelic movement. This resulted to numerous mods to love and patronize the original soundtrack of soul and ska. However some were later known and called skinheads and some develop their own hub of the Northern Soul picture.


Fashion statement of the first Northern Soul fashion are known to have button-down Ben Sherman shirts, baggy trousers or shrink to fit Levis, US bowling shirts, Poly-velt shoes, Blazers with centre vents and many buttons. This fashion statement creates fusion and wide acceptance among Northern Soul fanatic. It is also worthy to take note that during this period numerous dancers are seen wearing club badges.


The Northern Soul sound started in the Twisted Wheel Club located in Manchester. Then other clubs like Blackpool Mecca, Golden Torch in Stoke, North Park in Kettering, The Catacombs in Wolverhampton, the Winter Gardens in Cleethorpes, the Casino Club in Wigan, Blackpool Mecca, The Mojo and KGB clubs in Sheffield and Va Va’s follow the groove and enjoy the pleasure of the Northern Soul.


The Northern Soul creates the most expensive collection in the world of musical. This resulted to high price of records because of its scarcity, quality of beat, impressive melody and lyrics. Supporters are drowning over the lyric of Northern Soul that covers the expression of heartache, pain and joy of the romantic story of love.


The love of the people of Northern Soul sound brings popularity among the artist. The fever of Northern Soul become so imminent that fame of the artist are truly notable and give breaks to great career in the industry. Among them are the Fascinations and the Velvelettes that grace the 70’s on top 40 UK.

Ballet Music through The Ages: Explained by Nadel Paris Fri, 06 Apr 2018 11:15:21 +0000 nadelparis Continue reading ]]> Right from the beginning, ballet and music have been uniquely intertwined. Without music ballet is nothing more than the empty motions of a ritual. Without the movement and rhythm of dance, music looses all vitality. And so, ballet as a doorway to human expression hinges on both music and dance.


Jean Baptiste Lully (1632-1687), the Italian-born French composer who founded the national French opera was not just a court composer to Louis XIV, but also a choreographer who produced court ballets for Molière’s plays. This probably explains why his productions never lacked an accompaniment. However, theatre productions of the eighteenth century turned composers away from ballet and toward the music of ballroom dancing.


This phase sustained its self straight through the nineteenth century with the exception of pieces by Russian classical composer Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky (1840-1893) which include the Nutcracker, Swan Lake, and Sleeping Beauty.


In the twentieth century however, ballet came back to the spotlight. Once again considered a respectable art form, choreographers looked to the works of classical composers such as Mozart, Bach, Vivaldi, Chopin, Brahms, and Handel to perform the art of ballet dancing too.


Many agree that ballet owes its very existence to the likes of those who are both composers and choreographers. Because being musicians in nature, they naturally pay close attention to ballet following the rhythmic structure of its accompaniment precisely. One who does not understand music can easily create ballet that looks good that in of itself, yet at the mercy of a great classical piece the novice falls short of expressing the true nature of the piece. Instead, they turn the production into a form of movement that is devoid of both art and beauty. The experts instead know when it is appropriate to go against the grain of the accompaniment to heighten those dramatic periods which capture their audience’s attention and leaves them breathless.


As we dawn a new era of music and dance, it’s undeniable that ballet will continue to change. However, just as music and dance have always been the best of friends, ballet will continue to find its new identity in the constantly changing music of today.

Basic Song Structures of Popular Music by Nadel Paris Fri, 30 Mar 2018 12:11:45 +0000 nadelparis Continue reading ]]> Song structure forms favored by popular music have been pretty stable for decades. Most music (popular and otherwise) is built off at least two contrasting sections: the initial material (A) and the contrasting material (B). This helps give the music emotional direction, climax, and release. In popular forms, A serves as the verse and B serves as the chorus. The most common form, not surprisingly, is verse–chorus–verse–chorus–verse/interlude/bridge–chorus. After two repetitions of verse–chorus, a number of things can happen. There can be simply an instrumental verse. A bridge can function as additional contrasting material, taking us away from the basic material then returning us back to it. Sometimes there is a breakdown that provides contrasting rhythmic material, the equivalent of a non-lyric bridge. In a variation of this A-B form, there are two verses before the first chorus (A-A-B-A-B…).


Music where the chorus comes first is used less frequently (chorus–verse–chorus–verse etc.), although Hit Songs Deconstructed, which analyzes key song writing trends reflected in the Billboard Hot 100, found that this structure spiked from just 25% of songs in quarter one of 2015 to 42% in quarter two. The advantage of this structure is that the listener gets much earlier to the part of the song that is designed to be the most memorable, and gets “hooked” more quickly. The shorter attention span trend in mass culture has fueled this development, and wouldn’t be surprised to see more of it over time.


Songwriters sometimes employ additional mini-sections, such as a pre-chorus (which helps build up and amplify the chorus payoff) or a post-chorus (providing a “double your money” additional hook).


Some styles of music favor a different approach to the verse–chorus alternation. In much R&B, for example, while the verse and chorus differ lyrically and melodically, the underlying music and chord progressions do not change. Instead, the chorus is heightened with additional instruments and a beefed up sound. Alternatively, music coming out of rural and folk traditions often uses a simple A-A-A-A structure with reiterations of the verse. A short melodic hook or tail at the end of each verse, usually the same lyric, takes the place of the chorus. This structure could frequently be heard in music of the 60s and 70s (a good example is Joni Mitchell’s “Amelia”), but is much rarer now.


Although this toolbox seems pretty limited, there are actually a lot of things a songwriter can do to heighten the emotional payoff and mitigate predictability (we like some predictability, but unexpected surprises give even more emotional lift). Verses can be cut short or interrupted. The pre-chorus can be foreshadowed in the song’s introduction. Phrases can be repeated or not-repeated at the close of the chorus. The chorus can be delayed. And many more
