BARBERSHOP: A CAPPELLA'S MARTIAL ART
by Deke Sharon on 03/22/2013
http://www.casa.org/content/acamartialart

"You're young, you're scrappy. You want to be the best. You started singing in school, like everyone: choir, maybe a couple musicals. Karaoke with some friends, talent shows. Then some collegiate a cappella.
But you don't want to just be fine. That's not enough. You want to be great. You want technique, you want moves. You need to learn karate... except contemporary a cappella doesn't have a traditional refined martial art... does it?

It does. It's called Barbershop. And you're about to get the best schooling a young'un can, including:

BLEND: There's no blend like a barbershop blend. They don't just match their vowels, they align their diphthongs as they sweep from one vowel to the next. 4 guys (meaning men or women) sounding like one guy. Why does blend matter? Because each vowel has a very specific "fingerprint" - frequencies in the harmonic series - and when the vowels are perfectly aligned, it helps lock down...

TUNING: You think four voices can only create four notes? Guess again. When you lock your voices into perfect tune with the same vowels you can not only create additional notes above yours, you can even create the perception of a bass note below the human vocal range. That's right, that's the vocal equivalent of some kind of dark arts ninja magic. But it works, and it happens every day, along with...

DYNAMICS: Pop music on the radio has had the life squashed out of it. Learn how to sing quieter than you thought you could, and make a group sound that's louder than you have, without microphones. Did I mention that a perfectly aligned chord also reinforces itself, creating a boost in volume? More ninja skills. But we're not done yet, because you'll learn...
RUBATO: In a pop song, the tempo rarely varies. In a Barbershop performance you'll be pushing and pulling time, not unlike an orchestra. But there's no conductor. You learn to feel the rhythm rise and fall, you learn to breathe as a unit as you perfect your...

PHRASING: When everyone's singing the lyrics, everyone's singing and augmenting the melody as a unit. Like a finely tuned dance troupe, each person's movements are linked to everyone else's, in perfect synchronicity. This requires precision, so you'll learn how to...

REHEARSE: Barbershop is built on the finest traditions and techniques of classical choral music, so you know you're learning proper vocal technique and centuries of good habits, which will lead to...

PERFORMANCE: There's no hiding in the back row in Barbershop, and no auto-pilot. Songs are short, and every measure is a litany of rhythmic changes, rapidly aligning chords, juxtaposed dynamics... all delivered with a larger-than-life performing style that will push you to be present in every moment. But it's not all about performance, it's all about...

COMMUNITY: When you sing Barbershop, you're always only 3 guys away from a song, because there's a common repertoire and a perpetual desire to sing. Everyone's on the same team playing the same game, and you always win.

You might think Barbershop is only old guys singing old songs, but you're wrong. Sometimes the songs are new, sometimes the guys are young, but you know what? There's a lot to be learned from your elders, and if a song has lasted a century, it's still around for a good reason.
I'm not saying you have to learn Barbershop to be a great a cappella singer... but I am promising you if you do sing Barbershop, you'll be better than if you don't.

Le départ pour Terre-Neuve Oil on canvas by Georges Haquette, signed.
https://goo.gl/K0K0cB
Origin: France. Circa: 1884. Period: 19th Century. Georges Haquette was born in Paris in 1854 and received his artistic training from Aime Millet (the sculptor) and Cabanel – two important artists of the 19th century. It was from Cabanel he mastered the art of figure painting and his choice of subject matter was greatly influenced by many of the French Realist artists of his time, included Courbet and Millet. The theme of the peasant was a favorite among the artists of the time, but while most were concentrating on peasants harvesting the fields, Haquette chose to portray the harvesters of the sea. He made his debut at the Paris Salon in 1875 and exhibited there throughout his lifetime, receiving an honorable mention in 1878, the third class medal in 1880 and the second-class medal in 1901. Among his exhibited works were: Un homme à la mer! (1886), La femme du matelot (1887), La levée des filets (1888), Départ pour la pêche (1889), La levée du Chalut (1891) and À la côte (1900)

Eu sou apaixonada por covers e quem é fã do filme A Escolha Perfeita (Pitch Perfect 2012) vai curtir muito este grupo que canta a cappella ♫ http://goo.gl/GXkFGi

Não é segredo que sou apaixonada por covers, tanto que já disse que ~coleciono~ versões da mesma música. Algumas então, gosto mais dos covers do que a versão original ❤️‍ O Spotify que me conhece tão bem (ás vezes) me indicou na playlist Descobertas da Semana – que para quem não sabe, te indica músicas novas toda semana baseada no seu gosto – este grupo chamado Pentatonix que canta a cappella (igual ao filme Pitch Perfect sabe?) e claro, que me a...

Ok, I love a cappella and THIS IS AMAZING, their dedication to reproducing each and every instrument sound in 'Hotel California' with vocal reproduction is remarkable. (I know Peter Hollens does the same thing, all by himself! but 'Hotel California' is Hard Mode stuff)

Side note: at age 49 I only now discover the lyric isn't "She got a lot of pretty, pretty boys she calls men" ?! lol I think mine works better...

They are very talented, but they are far from the only group using effects to help mimic instruments. I think they do a very tasteful job though! Not over the top or used to cover lack musicianship. That's for sure!
