    When I was at the David Owsley Museum I was looking at art pieces that had more of a realistic feel. This piece caught my attention and then I listened to the audio and I really enjoyed the two pieces of art being placed together. There were three things that caught my attention with the music and then I noticed that things we discussed in art connected directly to the ideas from music.

Finally, I noticed how the idea of content that we discussed in art played out when I looked at this picture and when I listened to the music at the same time. This music piece enhances the piece of art by making it seem like you are actually involved in the waterfall and experiencing it first hand. The piece of music made the artwork stick out in my mind, so if it was not for the music piece I would not have enjoyed the artwork as much. After focusing on tone color in music class, I was able to depict the exact mood and the tone color that was supposed to be conceived. I felt this music made the piece seem intense, but yet it was relaxing at certain time. I would have depicted the piece of art as having a green tone color. The yellow was more present because it was very upbeat and seemed like something severe was going to happen. It is unique to me that the picture focuses on a lot of greens and blues, showing that these two combine together to…

    Melody- There's this basic riff repetition being played. As simple as it may be, there is melodic contour which takes shape when the direction changes. This song uses disjunct motion, the intervals change quite a bit. A lot of the singing seems to be staccato, adding to the long pauses. There's also legato that's connecting the song. Harmony- There is no vocal harmony, when he continues the singing, for a breath of time, it adds an echoing effect. The chords are played in a pentatonic format. …

    While music and language are both processed by the auditory cortex, language generally considered to be lateralized to the left hemisphere, and properties of music to the right. However, some features of sound are common to perception of both music and language. These common features include pitch, timbre, and hierarchical structure. In music, perception of pitch is important in identifying aspects such as melodies and harmonies in a musical piece. In non-tonal languages, variations of pitch…

    minute epic can be cleanly split into two distinct parts, due to a drastic and total shift in tempo, timbre and texture at around the 4:27 mark in the piece, but Ocean’s storytelling allows the two pieces to coexist perfectly, forcing the listener to remain attentive throughout the entire piece despite its intimidating length. Ocean leaves his artistic presence all over this piece with his smooth, power vocals and his way to flawlessly tell the story of of a pimp falling in love with one of his…

    the strings they just decide to interrupt and play over the strings. All of the instruments for the most part are playing the same melodic line just at different intensities. The ears are focused on one voice at a time and are not jumping around so it is homophonic. This piece also relates closely from the fugue from the baroque period. It relates because each new set of instruments that enters in this section presents the theme and plays something similar to the preceding line. The music has…

    Though failure is common, there are a few who have succeeded in making it their own. One such group is Nightwish. Nightwish takes this song, which was originally a rock song and turns it into a rock’n’roll song. The song shifts from an ethereal timbre to a dramatic, desperate struggling timbre. The main cause of this shift is the instrumental accompaniment taking a larger role in Nightwish’s cover. In the original version the song nicely balanced both the lyrics and the accompaniment, but…

    Für Elise Analysis

    • 3 Pages

    Für Elise that was composed by Ludwig van Beethoven. Für Elise literally translates to “For Elise”, a title that has raised many questions and few answers. The main reason that I’ve chosen this piece of music to write about is because it is a piece that is very well known, even to people who are not involved in music, and “is a common catalyst and inspiration that causes many people to become interested in the piano.” Für Elise is a revolutionary piece of music, and to support this claim we…
