  • Reflection On The David Owsley Museum

    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. The first thing that was intriguing to me was the tone color. Next, the dynamic was interesting and related to the way the painting was designed. 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…

  • The Importance Of Music And Language

  • Symphonie Fantastique Analysis

    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.

  • Reflection Paper On Art Of Active Listening

    The dynamics continue to grow when the drums join and then they fall when the lyrics begin. The timbre also changes when the vocals start-off. Prior to Johnson singing, the drums and the guitar are in harmony, however, when the vocals begin the drum and the guitar fade into the background which creates the texture change. The vocals are sung in a low tone forcing the background instruments to fade into an almost unnoticeably harmony. The dynamics during the chorus are different compared to the…

  • Krzyztof Tenderecki Analysis

    Pederick’s interest with timbre is evident throughout the entire piece of the threnody to the victims of Hiroshima, as Timbre is used to be one of the main forces Penderecki used to convey the dramatic tension behind the song.

  • Für Elise Analysis

    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…

  • Staples Family Concert Report

    Lawrence String quartet performance, I have a deeper appreciation for live performances more than recorded performances. The live concert performance empowered me to pinpoint such musical elements as: dynamics, timbre, rhythm, and texture. Just as Bonds states in Chapter 1 “Music exerts a powerful pull on the human spirit,” I felt this “pull” throughout the entire performance. I enjoyed the live performance of the pieces because the performer’s emotions allowed for me to understand the meaning…
