The electric guitar has changed music. The electric guitar gave music power, gave music energy. Leo Fender and his guitars (“He was all about the new”) played an important role in the music revolution that lead to rock, to punk, to funk. Fender is still an innovative company using 3D-printing technologies to try out new models. The Story Of The Guitar goes back to early Fender days.

TB-303 Documentary - Bassline Baseline (2005)WHY SHOULD YOU WATCH THIS? “The Roland 303 was intended to be a bass accompaniment for guitarists while practising alone. It became the basis of a new genre: house!”
A lot of innovation is accidental. Because a piece of technology ends up in experimental hands, because people start looking for the extremes. You can definitely say that for the Roland 303. The Roland basscomputer was intended to be a bass accompaniment for guitarists while practising alone. Untill artists started doing other stuff with it. And became the basis of a whole new genre: house music! This documentary is somewhere between radio and tv but tells the whole story!
Video explains the world's most important 6-sec drum loop
Video explains the world's most important 6-sec drum loopWHY SHOULD YOU WATCH THIS? “The breakbeat everyone knows. From 1969, but used untill now.”
Two record players was all the original hiphop crews needed. They used them in an innovative way. They didn’t play complete tracks, they played small bits from records, repeating them by using two recordplayers and two identical records. Later came the sampler that made cutting up, repeating and mixing bits of music easy. Thanks to the sampler there are 6 seconds of drums from the past that we all know. Another Nate Harrison narrated video.

After the sampler came the computer. But not immediately did we have good working sequencers and other software. The originators had to do a lot themselves. For example, New Order had to program the bassline of Blue Monday with their own binary code. This documentary gives a nice insight of the making of a classic. “We wanted to make new music by using new instruments and take the old one step further.”

Computers and the internet have changed all aspects of music. From production to promotion to sales to distribution. Music is digital now. And everything digital can be copied easily. And because you can copy and therefore re-use every bit of text, image, sound or video, that’s what happens. And that leads to new material, new creativity, new genres. Art has always built on work of the past, but in a digital word that’s what literally happens. This is a must see documentary about intellectual property in a digital world.
