#Songwriting: Five Types Of Rhymes In Your Lyrics

#Songwriting: Five Types Of Rhymes In Your Lyrics

Why we use rhymes

The main difference between prose and song lyrics is that lyrics have a rhythm to the lines and usually include rhymes. Why do we use rhymes in songs? Rhymes help emphasize the rhythm of your lyrics. They let's achieve an expression of tension that moves into resolution. Once you establish a rhyme scheme, your listeners will come to expect those rhyming patterns to keep, and if they do, they'll give your audience that sense of "Ah, I felt it absolutely was coming. Glad it resolved!"

MIDEM - 5 - 8 June 2018

Highlights this year was interview with Scooter Braun, big British stand, interviews with Kenya, MusicInAfrica.net, a developer from Indonesia and a company from Taiwan.

Kenya has more than safari, elephants andlions. Besides a coffee production, what is interesting for Vienna, there is a music scene in Kenya. I talked to an official from Keyan stand.

Music in Africa, a foundation supported by Siemens, is a growing network connecting musicians from 33 countries in Africa. Interesting that arabian countries in the north are not included. I spoke with a representative.

Indonesia has more than 17,000 islands. I spoke with a young developer about his product, a software solution to process guitar sound - for studio and live.

Again I saw the Taiwan based company Spinbox. They were present at Midem last year. I spoke with the CEO.

There were events on up to seven locations at Midem. Interesting. About new developments, technologies and trends in global music business.

#Musicproduction: Brain Control updates Tunefish to v4.2.0 - incl. VST3 #freedownload

Tunefish v4 was developed as a smaller replacement of Tunefish v3 with roughly the same power. It was developed for our intro Turtles all the way down which forced us to rethink how to most effectively produce music in very tight machine code. Read more about it here. The result was totally worth it and some might argue it is even more powerful. To open it up to a broader range of people, it was also ported over to Linux and MacOS and it was given a new polished UI.
