Quarterly Digest Nature Image – July 2017

Acinonyx jubatus – Cheetah

Photograph: Pixabay, 2017

“The cheetah is the world’s fastest land mammal. With acceleration that would leave most automobiles in the dust, a cheetah can go from 0 to 60 miles an hour in only three seconds. These big cats are quite nimble at high speed and can make quick and sudden turns in pursuit of prey.”

National Geographic, 2017

Redes Música

Antonio Cortés Villena

Email: redesmusicatv@gmail.com

 

Hola, soy Antonio Cortés, creador y fundador de Redes Música.

Redes Música es un proyecto dedicado a la enseñanza y promoción de la música en el ámbito de las clases extraescolares y la formación musical no formal.

Aprender música a través de un instrumento es uno de los actos más gratificantes y enriquecedores. Es instruirse para realizar la experiencia única de expresarse por un medio ajeno a las palabras.

Los instrumentos que utilizo principalmente son la guitarra y el ukelele. La guitarra por su popularidad y el ukelele por su puesta de moda en los últimos tiempos además de su facilidad para tocar, economía para los padres y sencillez para los niños. Pronto incorporaré al proyecto nuevos instrumentos para hacer música como son la batería y el bajo, y  a personas que entiendan y compartan la idea del proyecto.

Tecnologías como los nuevos programas de edición de partituras con lenguaje midi, canales nuevos de difusión como es YouTube, además de las redes sociales, imprimen un aire nuevo y moderno en la manera de aprender música. Hoy en día debido al gran avance tecnológico que hace tener miles de herramientas de edición musical y el fácil acceso al conocimiento de los distintos estilos musicales, considero  importantísimo aprender a través de la composición, porque es una de las mejores maneras de entender y  de saber cómo funciona la música.

La finalidad de Redes Música es aprender música y además, utilizar la música en un entorno actual, acorde con los tiempos que corren, y como medio para favorecer el desarrollo de multitud de capacidades entre las que cabe destacar la concentración, la memoria, la psicomotricidad, el pensamiento abstracto y, por supuesto, las capacidades propiamente artísticas: creatividad y sensibilidad.

Un saludo a tod@s.

Antonio.

El Rincón de lo Bello

Welcome to our section in Spanish, dedicated to all that is beautiful. In this Issue, we are delighted to share with our readers Eres Mi Mejor Casualidad by Spanish singer and composer Antonio Orozco.

Eres Mi Mejor Casualidad

Podría haber nacido tarde y sabes,
Perderme por aquellas calles.
Podría no haber pasado.

Podría haber restado el tiempo y sin haber cruzado nunca las miradas,
Podrías estar muy lejos y responder a los dictados,
Caprichos de un amor pasado,
Senderos donde no buscamos.
Es momento, sabes a vida, tienes la llave que enciende mis días.
Eres la magia pa’ suerte la mía
Sabes a besos de cine en almíbar.
No hay más dudas, que sepas que hoy tiene sentido
El tiempo perdido, sabiendo que eres mi mejor casualidad.

Si hubiese funcionado o hubiese fracasado,
Y que más da.

Recuerdo haber fallado, quizás haber ganado,
Y que más da.
Podría haber pasado el tiempo y sin haber cruzado nunca unas palabras,
Podría no haber pasado y responder a los dictados.
Caprichos de un amor pasado,
Senderos donde no buscamos.

Es momento, sabes a vida, tienes la llave que enciende mis días.
Eres la magia pa’ suerte la mía
Sabes a besos de cine en almíbar.
No hay más dudas, que sepas que hoy tiene sentido
El tiempo perdido, sabiendo que eres mi mejor casualidad.

Es momento, sabes a vida, eres la magia pa’ suerte la mía,
Sabes a besos de cine en almíbar.
No hay más dudas, que sepas que hoy tiene sentido
El tiempo perdido, sabiendo que eres mi mejor casualidad.

Antonio Orozco (2015) From the Album Destino
