Any sound that is produced naturally is soothing to one’s ear. The humming of the birds, the flow of fresh water along the river, and the gentle raindrops on the roof during rainy season are just some of the examples. In addition, I have to say that all native/improvised musical instruments also give that same relaxing effect.
For instance, we use the medium air to play a flute. The hum that it produces is mesmerizing to ear. Other examples are the acoustic guitars, woodwind and brasswind, they all make use of strings with different diameters and it is played by plucking or strumming.
However, one thing common among these naturally-played musical instruments is the intensity of the sound it creates. It maybe pleasing to us when we hear it but if the musician plays these instruments with huge number of audience, the effect of that charming sound diminishes since the people absorbs the sound waves. To compliment the result, these instruments are being plugged to a mixer or amplifier systems to increase the volume so that everyone who is watching the performance might be able to appreciate it.
Today the technology in the music industry has even evolved. Aside from the amplifying system, there are so called stringed electric instruments like the electric cello at wwbw, that produce sound with electric amplification. These are commonly used by the rockstars to cover popular or rock songs, sometimes even heavy metal songs.
In the case of our acoustic band, TheUnspoken, we still use two acoustic guitars since our gigs and events are mostly weddings and company gathering. Nevertheless, we are also looking forward to cover different genre of songs whichever is popular and trending. Now that’s music, it keeps on evolving from time to time. (AAP)
