Luddite (EP)
LUDDITE is an EP by Grotus
Grotus
, released in 1992 by Spirit Music Industries. CONTENTS * 1 Release and reception * 2 Track listing * 3 Personnel * 4 Release history * 5 References * 6 External links RELEASE AND RECEPTIONIn writing for AllMusic , critic Ned Raggett
Ned Raggett
said "finding its own way around industrial/rock fusions without simply recreating Ministry or Nine Inch Nails, the foursome explores grinding rhythms without an eye to either thrash metal or dancefloors, Lars Fox's roared vocals calling the tune (or lack thereof)." He awarded it three stars, concluding that "Luddite makes for a good slice of Grotus
Grotus
at its pre-major-label peak." Trouser Press noted that the music benefited by possessing a greater variance in composition structure and tighter focus in musicianship, helping to reinforce the band's message

Extended-range Bass
An EXTENDED-RANGE BASS is an electric bass guitar with a wider frequency range than a standard-tuned four-string bass guitar. One way that a bass could be considered 'extended-range' is to utilize a tuning peg mechanism that allows for instant re-tuning, such as the popular 'Xtenders' made by Hipshot detuners. When the detuner is triggered by the player, it drops the pitch of the string by an interval pre-set by the player. A common use of detuners is to drop the low E to a low D. Detuners are more rarely used on other strings. Michael Manring uses basses with detuners on every string; this enables him to have access to a greater number of chime-like harmonics. Another way to get an extended range is to add strings. The most common type of bass guitar with more than four strings is the five-string bass. Five-string basses often have a low-B string, extending the instrument's lower range

Audio Engineering
An AUDIO ENGINEER (also sometimes RECORDING ENGINEER or a VOCAL ENGINEER) works on the recording , manipulating the record using equalization and electronic effects , mixing , reproduction, and reinforcement of sound. Audio engineers work on the "...technical aspect of recording—the placing of microphones , pre-amp knobs, the setting of levels. The physical recording of any project is done by an engineer ... the nuts and bolts." Many audio engineers creatively use technologies to produce sound for film , radio , television , music , and video games . Audio engineers also set up, sound check and do live sound mixing using an audio console and a sound reinforcement system for music concerts, theatre , sports games and corporate events

Guitar
The GUITAR is a musical instrument classified as a fretted string instrument with anywhere from four to 18 strings, usually having six. The sound is projected either acoustically, using a hollow wooden or plastic and wood box (for an acoustic guitar ), or through electrical amplifier and a speaker (for an electric guitar ). It is typically played by strumming or plucking the strings with the fingers, thumb or fingernails of the right hand or with a pick while fretting (or pressing against the frets ) the strings with the fingers of the left hand. The guitar is a type of chordophone , traditionally constructed from wood and strung with either gut, nylon or steel strings and distinguished from other chordophones by its construction and tuning. The modern guitar was preceded by the gittern , the vihuela , the four-course Renaissance guitar , and the five-course baroque guitar , all of which contributed to the development of the modern six-string instrument

Singing
SINGING is the act of producing musical sounds with the voice and augments regular speech by the use of sustained tonality , rhythm , and a variety of vocal techniques. A person who sings is called a SINGER or VOCALIST. Singers perform music (arias , recitatives , songs , etc.) that can be sung with or without accompaniment by musical instruments . Singing
Singing
is often done in an ensemble of musicians, such as a choir of singers or a band of instrumentalists. Singers may perform as soloists, or accompanied by anything from a single instrument (as in art song or some jazz styles) up to a symphony orchestra or big band . Different singing styles include art music such as opera and Chinese opera , Hindustani music , and religious music styles such as gospel , traditional music styles, world music , jazz , blues , gazal and popular music styles such as pop , rock , electronic dance music , and filmi

Keyboard Instrument
A KEYBOARD INSTRUMENT is a musical instrument played using a keyboard , a row of levers which are pressed by the fingers. The most common of these are the piano , organ , and various electronic keyboards , including synthesizers and digital pianos . Other keyboard instruments include celestas , which are struck idiophones operated by a keyboard, and carillons , which are usually housed in bell towers or belfries of churches or municipal buildings. Today, the term keyboard often refers to keyboard-style synthesizers . Under the fingers of a sensitive performer, the keyboard may also be used to control dynamics , phrasing , shading, articulation , and other elements of expression—depending on the design and inherent capabilities of the instrument. Another important use of the word keyboard is in historical musicology, where it means an instrument whose identity cannot be firmly established

Sampler (musical Instrument)
A SAMPLER is an electronic or digital musical instrument similar in some respects to a synthesizer , but instead of generating new sounds with filters and oscillators, it uses sound recordings (or "samples ") of real instrument sounds (e.g., a piano, violin or trumpet), excerpts from recorded songs (e.g., a five-second bass guitar riff from a funk song) or other sounds (e.g., car horns, sirens, ocean waves). The samples are loaded or recorded by the user or by a manufacturer. These sounds are then played back by means of the sampler program itself, a MIDI keyboard , sequencer or another triggering device (e.g., electronic drums ) to perform or compose music. Because these samples are usually stored in digital memory, the information can be quickly accessed. A single sample may often be pitch-shifted to different pitches to produce musical scales and chords

Photography
PHOTOGRAPHY is the science , art , application and practice of creating durable images by recording light or other electromagnetic radiation , either electronically by means of an image sensor , or chemically by means of a light-sensitive material such as photographic film . Typically, a lens is used to focus the light reflected or emitted from objects into a real image on the light-sensitive surface inside a camera during a timed exposure . With an electronic image sensor, this produces an electrical charge at each pixel , which is electronically processed and stored in a digital image file for subsequent display or processing. The result with photographic emulsion is an invisible latent image , which is later chemically "developed" into a visible image, either negative or positive depending on the purpose of the photographic material and the method of processing

Design
DESIGN is the creation of a plan or convention for the construction of an object, system or measurable human interaction (as in architectural blueprints , engineering drawings , business processes , circuit diagrams , and sewing patterns ). Design
Design
has different connotations in different fields (see design disciplines below). In some cases, the direct construction of an object (as in pottery , engineering , management , coding , and graphic design ) is also considered to use design thinking. Designing often necessitates considering the aesthetic , functional , economic, and sociopolitical dimensions of both the design object and design process. It may involve considerable research , thought , modeling , interactive adjustment , and re-design. Meanwhile, diverse kinds of objects may be designed, including clothing , graphical user interfaces , skyscrapers , corporate identities , business processes , and even methods or processes of designing

Vinyl Record
A GRAMOPHONE RECORD (PHONOGRAPH RECORD in the US), commonly known as a VINYL RECORD or simply VINYL or RECORD, is an analog sound storage medium in the form of a flat polyvinyl chloride (previously shellac ) disc with an inscribed, modulated spiral groove. The groove usually starts near the periphery and ends near the center of the disc. The phonograph disc record was the primary medium used for music reproduction until late in the 20th century. It had co-existed with the phonograph cylinder from the late 1880s and replaced it by the late 1920s. Records retained the largest market share even when new formats such as compact cassette were mass-marketed
