Composers' Forum

Music Composers Unite!

I will be the first one to say that J.S. Bach is my favorite overall composer, Partita No.2, Chaccone is my favorite piece, but what specifically makes his music great, influential, and worth all the recognition? How would you explain this to a musician and a nonmusician?

:-) looks like a security door key to a troubled urban ghetto housing estate, or is it a dongle for Vienna Sound Library?  (either that or I miss it completely, Fred).

lol- if it is a dongle for VSL, I hope he's insured it. Looks more like one of those mini baroque drones he used to check his wife wasn't having an affair with Vivaldi.

fidget spinner.

These things have been selling out at all the 'stop and go' type marts.

They are a fad with the 8 to 14 yr. olds.

They sell for anywhere between $7.49 and $11.89 USD.

There are now many 'copycat' versions, even some w/ LEDS.

A silly contraption that has made millions within a few months.

And many adults. I'll stick up for those who claim therapeutic effects, it's not a device/toy that can be so easily categorised as "8-14 yr old fad" though I suspect I am in scant company with this perspective. I have one of them there new-fangled fidget cubes; if baoding balls aren't a fad, neither are these.

What is the difference between a fad and a trend?

Fred , you are a mischief maker... lol

Let's see, there must 1000 + 1 examples.

Receding hairlines are a trend and wigs were a fad.

Rock and roll is a trend, the Beatles were a fad.

More revealing beachwear for women has been the trend,

but yellow polkadot bikini's were a fad.

The death of the US dollar is the trend, while crypto currencies are a fad.

The one and only exception to this is... the fugue. lol

It apparently is both a fad and a trend.

The device that Bach is shown holding was originally designed as an IUD.

It obviously failed miserably and has been repurposed for modern day use.

the difference between a fad and a trend is two years.

Yes I had heard that the fidget spinner was originally either an IUD, or an IED. The story is it was implanted as an IUD but failed in its assigned task. As a consequence new born emerged playing with the thing.
