  • The Musical Composition In The Cinema Entr And Song Socrates

    The musical composition in the cinema Entr'acte Symphonique de "Relache" (1924) and song Socrates (1919) both produced by Eric Satie illustrates the distinct musical approaches that he used in his compositions. Interestingly, I have noticed Satie used different musical elements to distinguish different sections both the cinema and the musical composition. My analysis of his approaches in these two pieces of work is critical in understanding the sensibilities of the works and understanding of Satie’s use of sound to develop the two famous artworks. The cinema Entr'acte Symphonique de "Relache" lasts for approximately seventeen minutes and has a total of twenty-two episodes. Each of twenty-two episodes is connected by repeated, overlapping, recurring, and re-contextualized ballet musical elements that make them appear distinct from each other. Each episode exhibits more than one musical gesture. The episodes have an average of four musical gestures that have different instrumentations, harmony, smoothness, and sharpness of their rhythms. In some sections of musical gestures, the saxophones are louder whereas others predominantly…

    services were held, the sick, poor, elderly, and orphaned could take refuge. Here, within the nunneries and convents men and women alike were taught to read and write literature and music.

  • Auscultation In Steven Church's The Opera Of Existence

    The Opera of Existence In music, the pitches and the pauses in a composition contribute to the piece as much as, or even more than, the lyrics themselves. In non-lyrical music, each note must be deliberate, played in a certain way to achieve the desired effect. The crescendos cause feelings of power and anticipation, while decrescendos gather the attention of the audience. Each note adds to the tone of the piece, but silence similarly asserts itself in its demand to be felt. In Gymnopédie…

    Likewise, he expresses his disbelief by saying that the older artist who make cover records are narcissistic suggesting the musician who explores a different genre than their own is a desperate need for them to display their knowledge of musical catalogs. Personally, I love when a band does a cover song. I would argue that matter whether it is different or not because in most cases it is a song you have never heard before. If you listen to U2 you may have never listened to a Jimi Hendrix or…

  • How Has Music Influenced Me

    Throughout the semester, Professor Ochoa would drop an inspirational quote that would sometimes leave a lingering effect on me. There were three that stuck out to me the most. The first was, “Great art awakens the art in you”. I completely agree that great art can stir something inside of you that creates creativity. For example, you could listen to Tchaikovsky’s, Symphony #5 second movement, and be inspired to create a painting that you feel captures the emotion of the musical piece. Great art…
