No one said that. But since you mention it the above link is to a story about an Iranian metal band facing death for blasphemy. I don’t know where this girl is from but I hope she isn’t at risk for the kind of music she enjoys playing.
Fretless 🎸, for sure. I think even explicitly pro Islamic rock and metal bands are persecuted there. Its seen as satanic even though Iranian metal fans don’t do the horns sign but they do one finger indicating no god but allah.,, sad really. But I think Iran is especially vigorous about it.
Instead of playing music she could praise Allah but she waste her time by doing otherwise.
Also music is in some Islamic* completely forbidden.
Also in some buddhistic teaches, but there it's more like a guideline instead of an law which could get you stoned to death.
5̀øÑ͜ ̕0f Æ̨ ğłīťç̴H, Buddhists don't stone anyone...and I have no idea what you're talking about, but Buddha never said anything bad about music.
The scriptures record two instances of Panchasika or Pansilu, the musician of Tavatimsa heaven, visiting the Buddha: on one such occasion, standing outside the dwelling of the Buddha, and within a short distance to be audible to the enlightened one, Panchasika while playing his instrument named as Beluvapanda, sang his own composition which described the attractiveness of his sweetheart.
Hanover Fiste, I didn't said that they stone anyone or that Buddha forbid it.
To be a bit more precise it's declined from some buddhists in some monasteries because they refer to music as drug.
Also the wearing of anything decorative can be declined aswell from some buddhists.
But as allways its more a guideline which has everyone to proof for himself instead of just blindly following.
Personal speaking I think that's absolutely ridiculous to decline music, that's why I remembered it.
And that's why i find it really sick that someone could be stoned for it.
Church banned music too... every religion bans music... to be specific the Church banned music played with instruments, because instruments can't praise the Lord, they said... They also banned a notoriously dissonant interval it is the augmented 5th... metal music utilizes it a lot...
And just like religions politicians use music, musicians and genres to aid their movements or to divide people...
So every institution that relies on brainwashing you to get their way heavily interferes with music... because mind made the music but the music makes the mind... that is: as we grow in a culture the music we hear and the harmony we are accustomed to literally shapes our brain circuitry... many studies exist on the topic.
P.S. while islam is a particularly backwards religion they never banned music, that's because, Quran was written down as a poem that is chanted as a song with notes and a melody... it was designed that way to aid in memorization. Also the call to prayer is a melody that is sang...
So they could never really banned music, but they might have banned western music in some countries more about politics if you ask me. See Islam is welcoming towards abstract art, but they don't like statues and painting of people or animals etc because they think it might cause people to turn to idolatry 😃 it is a particularly stupid idea... because in the end they failed.
Hanover Fiste, it was a reaction of Josés comment that it's ignorant to assume that she can't love metal then in fact it could bring her danger.
About the buddhists it was just additional, because I remembered me..
Where is the relation so hard to see?
5̀øÑ͜ ̕0f Æ̨ ğłīťç̴H, I still don't get what you and Jose are going on about. My point here is about her being Muslim, and how music transcends all this ideology. The band she is playing also has a gay singer. When Judas priest was hot in the 1980s everyone knew he was gay, gay wasn't cool yet, and nobody cared because he was amazing, and didn't throw his sexuality in everyone's face. Music. Music can bring people together. We need more of this magic.
Hanover Fiste, I don't know what José is on about either. Since its not that of an usual sight to see as he depicturing it.
Don't throw us in the same pot. Because on this topic I don't go conform with him.
I would also go into the Rohingya and the Arakan Rohingya Salvation Army because things there aren't that one sided either, but this would be really offtopic then. So I spared you this.
And I have nothing against the core message of this card. Absolutely not, I just have something against the institutions who are supressing music.. even if it's buddhistic.
Hanover Fiste, thanks for reminding me that verse... yeah... the events I describe were way back in the day, around the time of Gregorian Chant... 9th and 10th centuries, nothing recent. It is precisely because of this attitude and enforcement of the church which gave rise to Gregorian Chant... and to be honest I am glad they did what they did because it resulted in an iconic genre of music... I love Gregorian Chant... 😃😇
I studied music and music history, there is a lot more I could have said about the topic, but I could summarize it all by saying Christians had the right ideas when it comes to music. Notre Dame School and Germans invented musical notation, harmony, counterpoint... what else there is to say... 🤗
SlimFootJesus, 👏 you're definitely more schooled in music than I. But I'm fascinated with the effect it has. I learned sheet music on piano when I was 6 but I never used it when I learned guitar. There's arguments about whether or not learning sheet music hurts creativity, but I don't bother with that argument. I just like to emerse myself in the sound and go with it, but I'm not against the structures of theory, which I have studied a little bit.
I'm more fascinated with the emotional effects that Frank Zappa studied, and also the scientific studies of harmony, like the addition of a third note that isn't really played when 2 notes of a frequency are played. Light and sound have always fascinated me, but sound to a greater extent.
SlimFootJesus, could you provide me may some good georgian chanting bands? I just knew a few which are so popular that they had television commercials. But even to less that I have a specific list for that. And besides that, I like more the independent unknown ones anyway.
I don't know who you're directing that question to but I think it's very cute to see young kids play this well. Especially girls. As far as her being Muslim, well, she is. It's not her clothes that confirm it but her YouTube profile 🤣
It seems like you're a SJW looking to pick a fight here. You're the bigot here. I never mentioned her being a Muslim, you brought it up. She's in Indonesia. Now take off your SJW hat and let us all live in peace. Quit trying to pick a fight.
