Transcript of Music Genre Presentation

HOUSE MUSIC By: Kaitlin, Becky, Olivia, Emma Origins House music is:
It is a genre of electronic dance music that originated in the early 1980s.
House is considered to be a descendant of disco.
The term House was derived from the Warehouse Nightclub in Chicago; a DJ, Frankie Knuckles developed a distinct sound due to an electronic drum machine.
Sold records and labeled them “played at the Warehouse” which shortened to “house music.”
Early house music was generally dance-based music characterized by repetitive 4/4 beast, rhythms mainly provided by drum machines, and synthesized bass lines
In the past decade, house music has become popular in America because many artists have crossed over to the mainstream. Young people are now interested in the chorus and beat of a song over the words, which house music has capitalized on. Lifestyle Socialization Likes and Dislikes Nurture of Music THE END Likes:
