The group then picks up the pace with "Streams Of Consciousness" which features a much more up beat feel, making me want to tap my foot. Redman again takes the solo with an extremely fast pace, using the full range of the tenor sax. The thing I enjoyed most about this tune was the electric guitar solo toward the end. The laid back sound gives a big contrast to the up beat feel of the song. The remainder of the CD seems to have the feel of one of the first three songs, adding a little variety with some blues sound, a little call and response, and some stop time rhythm.
Dynamics between both periods are vastly different as well, during the baroque period the dynamics would change suddenly rather than gradually and during the classical period they could change either gradually or suddenly. Tone color of the baroque period consisted of the use of the basso continuo, however, in the classical period, the basso continuo ended and instead, wind and brass instruments were used to provide contrast. Melodies of the baroque period were often complex and hard to remember, unlike the classical period where they were the melodies were tuneful and easy to remember. In both, the harmonies were based on major and minor scales, however, in the classical period dissonance was used to provide
Many artists are using some type form of text painting. I believe it evolve just as much music evolved. There is a difference of text painting between the two songs I chose. Listen to as Vesta was from latmos hill descending was amazingly dramatic compare to Justin Timberlake “What goes around.” song. Some people may not agree with text painting but allows the audience to engage into the music.
The rhythm is far from strict and predictable, offering a lot of flexibility. Throughout the song, the dynamics can clearly be identified. At some points of the piece, the music will grow louder creating a crescendo and other times it will get softer also called a decrescendo. Classical music is common for having a simple melody that is catchy and tuneful. By listening closely, one can sense that this piece has an underlying melody that slightly resembles the children song, “Mary Had a Little Lamb.” The tone color of the piece contains specific instrumental timbres and certain playing techniques that make it stand out and very unique and exciting.
This will allow you to gain familiarity with the work before making a decision. The antithesis of a melody is the countermelody. As the name suggests, a countermelody plays against, or counter to the melody. Most countermelodies are played in the higher registers. For instance, the piccolo co... ... middle of paper ... ...n played at the same time will create a smooth and dark timbre.
I would like to hear more pitch and tone from both as well. I think if the artist keeps going back to the tonic note to much that the song can become boring. Both songs had a lot of rhythm, melody, and harmony within the piece which without this the songs wouldn’t be what they are. I love both these songs both musically and emotionally.
Accomplished composers know about the various available techniques and how to use the in a composition to good effect. Percussion In traditional music, percussion instruments can create dramatic ambient noise through the use of both pitched and non-pitched instruments. Using traditional instruments in non-traditional ways can provide composers with new sounds and is a common practice for orchestral composers. Crotales that normally act as bells can be transformed into an ethereal, lingering effect when bowed with a string bow instead of striking with a mallet. The sound of rain and thunder can be created using sheets of metal and a bass drum mallet along with a rain stick that the percussionist can use to create the sound of falling rain.
The piece was performed by two people: one playing a vibraphone and the other playing a large drum/cymbal/gong. However, the piece also contained prerecorded sounds of static, bass, and an incoherent voice. In this piece the melody was repeated many times. It was similar to the works of John Adams because of its repetitions, background recording, and minimalistic sounds. The second piece was a piano composition by Thalia Ventimilla called Ecuadorian Afternoon.
Each piece is slightly different from the last, and they are all eloquent and beautiful. The first piece, “Kyrie” utilized mostly homophony. It was sung at the speed of andante. During the piece, I could heard points of chromaticism that were used to heighten expression in the piece. The second piece of the “Little Organ Mass” is “Gloria.” It is a very short portion that uses polyphony and homophony.
The overtone series is a complex measurement of pitches that helps musicians understand how they are related to each other. Above you will see a picture of the overtone series and the relation of pitches.

If you notice the music follows the same pattern of I-IV-V but there is one major difference in this piece than the one previously discussed.
