An interesting article about strange music

There are a lot of kinds and genres of music and different people like various music.I want to talk about a genre of music that is very strange but also very interesting.It's MEDIEVAL MUSIC. Yes,till september of 2008 I hadn't heard about it,but last year I visited a great concert of the medieval music band "Xeremia" in Yerevan.I listen to medieval music with great pleasure.Here is a picture of that concert.After concert I invited the band to our town.They came and had a small concert in Nor Hadjn. 

                        

And now what is medieval music?Mediaeval music tells us a story, that of our history. It concerns us, tells us where we come from, who we are, it identifies our cultural roots, deepens our sense of response to music and kindles our need for spirituality.Mediaeval music is fraught with powerful images associated with the ideas of dream, fantasy, conquest, the development of a fabulous and much envied architectural patrimony. The wealth of this imagery bear s witness to the timelessness of those human values produced by man's thirst for knowledge, courtly love, longing for thruth. Indeed it represents the fundamental values of the new Man, of the new Entreprise always trying to devise new ways to further communication, creation.

                                  I advise you to listen to this music.      

                  

If medieval music interests you read about it on the official website of                                                       Xeremia band.

DOTCOM.Personal Media Inventory.1. Internet

I started my personal media inventory with “Internet”, because Internet is really my favorite media. I think that Internet includes other kinds of media(music, movies, pictures, games etc.),too. But mostly Internet is interesting for me, because I get a lot of new and attractive information from it (I think that information today is very powerful and precious).

                         

I can find very interesting things about technologies, countries, people, nature, history, computers and simply read news and interesting articles in Internet.

                                                    

There are a lot of useful websites where I visit. For example Google, Yandex, Yahoo, Mail, FaceBook, Wikipedia, YouTube etc. Internet is a very-very big network, that helps us to connect people, get information and have fan. I’m proud that I’m member of this big network,of this big family.  

                                                 What sites do YOU like?

DOTCOM.Knowledge tree.Collective work.

I think that very important part of DOTCOM program will be collective work.Today the biggest attainment for world is peace.We must do everything for peace between two countries,two nations.I've got experience of collective work.

                       

I think work in groups is more interesting and effective.I always help people who needs help.If we have collective works,I'll do my best to be helpful for my group.

DOTCOM.Knowledge tree.Community.

Hi.Now I want to talk about community.I live in Armenia.I like my country and my nation,but Armenia is a young country and there are a lot of thinks to change in our policy in various fields. Our country choose democracy.It's true,but it's also very difficult for our young country.

                         

I'm a young citizen of Armenia and I'm interested in live of Armenia.Here is the problem.There are unique people who understand that democracy isn't only word,it's live,live of every citizen of country.Unique people understand that they must be interested in live of their country,that their opinion is very important,that everybody must have and say his opinion.

                 

Today we have got a lot of problems in our community,but all this problems will resolve when we understand that our government is only construction that is created by us and that it must work only for people of that country.I'm a young boy but I think that my own opinion is also very important for our community.I've met leaders of our community and I've discussed different problems with them.For example education, economics,politics,culture etc.Some weeks ago I've met with minister of education,we've had and interesting discussion and in Febrary I'll meet with prime minister of Armenia forth time and we'll continue our discussion that we've begun in ministry of education. My big dream is to become president of my country and then I'll do my best to transform Armenia to a big and rich country. I understand that I can do it only with hard and collective work,but I'm ready for it.
