On November, 13th 2018 we went to a concert venue (at the ‘Cartonnerie’ in Reims) with Mrs Ranaivoson, our music teacher and Mrs Bertaso, our English teacher.
The name of the concert was ‘Peace and Lobe’ which is a pun between the words ‘love’ and ‘(ear)lobe’ because it was about prevention of hearing problems. The goal was to raise teenagers’ awareness of auditory disorders.
We were not the only class to attend the show. There were a lot of other classes from schools and highschools from Reims. The show lasted one hour and a half. A band of four boys, named ‘Ouïe-Fi’ (another pun with ‘Wi-Fi’), played on stage. There were a singer, a drummer, a guitarist / bass player and a pianist. And there were videos too.
Here’s what we learnt :
-the evolution of music and technologies.
-musical tendencies from the 20s to nowadays : jazz, blues, country, rock&roll, pop music, reggae, rap and electronic music.
-the definition of ‘sound’
-the amplification and the propagation of sound in a concert venue.
-the different elements in an ear and how the auditory canal works.
-the auditory disorders are numerous : tinnitus, deafness,
Here’s what we must do :
-we must put ear plugs while going to concerts for example.
-we must not listen to music too loud and too long with our headphones.
-we must respect break times : 15 minutes every hour in a quiet place.
-we must go far from speakers.
-we mustn’t sleep with our headphones on.
