Musical Costumes – The Phish Halloween Show


What will it be this year ..?

Every year, for its annual Halloween show, Phish covers a classic album in its entirety — the musical equivalent of donning a costume. What will it be this year?

Past shows have featured The White Album by the Beatles, Quadraphenia by The Who, and last year’s choice, Exile on Main Street by The Rolling Stones.

“This year,” Phish guitarist Trey Anastasio said, “this one’s for me. The one we picked, I’m going to get more out of this as a musician than I ever have before. Three songs into it, I called everybody and told them, ‘None of the other ones – I wouldn’t think, hopefully – will have nearly the effect on my playing this one’s going to.’ ”

Guesses, guesses, anyone?

    We would like to offer the sci. methods
    “Digital Music Grammar “ and “Algorithm of Microcycles “
    for your consideration and review .
    We consider the children would benefit by further study.
    Throughout many centuries, the musical structure has had numerous modifications. We can observe the constant use of digits for convenience of notation of the music sounds, for example: digital organ bass, lute tabulatures, guitar jazz ciphers. Nowadays the digital system of teaching is absent in educational programs and is not applied in practice because of teacher’s insufficient professional knowledge in the sphere of the child’s physiology.
    The following scientific article “Digital Music Grammar” raises the question of the necessity of application of the digital technologies in the system of music education. The findings of our scientific investigations have permitеd us to understand the most delicate mechanisms of child’s mental activity and to detect new creative abilities. Our goals: Directed application of the information technologies will help schoolmasters to improve the quality, speed and efficiency on music teaching of the children. The sci.methods “ Digital Music Grammar “ and “ Algorithm of Microcycles “ are dedicated to children for development their intellectual and creative abilities.
