Stereophonic Sound
STEREOPHONIC SOUND or, more commonly, STEREO, is a method of sound reproduction that creates an illusion of multi-directional audible perspective. This is usually achieved by using two or more independent audio channels through a configuration of two or more loudspeakers (or stereo headphones ) in such a way as to create the impression of sound heard from various directions, as in natural hearing. Thus the term "stereophonic" applies to so-called "quadraphonic " and "surround-sound " systems as well as the more common two-channel, two-speaker systems. It is often contrasted with monophonic , or "mono" sound, where audio is heard as coming from one position, often ahead in the sound field (analogous to a visual field ). In the 2000s, stereo sound is common in entertainment systems such as broadcast radio and TV, recorded music and the cinema

Monaural
MONAURAL or MONOPHONIC SOUND REPRODUCTION (often shortened to MONO) is intended to be heard as if it were a single channel of sound perceived as coming from one position (unlike stereo , which uses two channels to convey the impression of sound coming from different places from left, middle, and right). In mono, only one loudspeaker is necessary, but, when played through multiple loudspeakers or headphones, identical signals are fed through each of the wires into each speaker, resulting in the perception of a one-channel sound, which "images" in one sonic space between the speakers (provided that the speakers are set up in a proper symmetrical critical-listening placement).

recordings, like stereo, customarily use multiple microphones, fed into multiple channels on a recording console, but each channel is "panned " to be in the center

Gold Album
MUSIC RECORDING SALES CERTIFICATION is a system of certifying that a music recording has shipped or sold a certain number of copies. The threshold quantity varies by type (such as album, single , music video ) and by nation or territory (see List of music recording certifications ). Almost all countries follow variations of the RIAA certification categories, which are named after precious materials (gold , platinum and diamond ). The number of sales or shipments required for these awards depends upon the population of the territory in which the recording is released. Typically, they are awarded only to international releases and are awarded individually for each country in which the album is sold. Different sales levels, some perhaps 10 times lower than others, may exist for different music media (for example: videos versus albums , singles, or downloads)

Music Genre
A MUSIC GENRE is a conventional category that identifies some pieces of music as belonging to a shared tradition or set of conventions. It is to be distinguished from musical form and musical style, although in practice these terms are sometimes used interchangeably. Recently, academics have argued that categorizing music by genre is inaccurate and outdated. Music
Music
can be divided into different genres in many different ways. The artistic nature of music means that these classifications are often subjective and controversial, and some genres may overlap. There are even varying academic definitions of the term genre itself. In his book Form in Tonal Music, Douglass M. Green distinguishes between genre and form . He lists madrigal , motet , canzona , ricercar , and dance as examples of genres from the Renaissance period.
