Gamelan music is polyphony sound body of a branch, where listening to Gamelan music people will have such a feeling: Gamelan music both complex and simple. Complex because it has multiple layers of sound, a number of independent melodic lines and a variety of staggered orderly rhythm, it is different from Western music in the main theme of harmony and polyphony music, but also from Eastern countries unison, unison derived from the branch in The Sound of Music. Simply because of a head of the large core melody music seems to be fixed, continuous cycle, like never ends. Gamelan music musical structure are a cyclical, every musical passages can be constantly repeated, big hanging gong sound repeated previous paragraph marks a cycle terminates with the next start, drummer seems to have a role in directing, if not He converted hinted music piece, the music segment has been the cycle continues endlessly, this feature is Indonesia religion "reincarnation" concept of religion
The percussion sometimes overpowered the rest of the band, but they played with almost perfect dynamics, and their rhythms were clear, and correct. Overall, I felt that the brass section were probably the most showcased section in this piece, but they did have some intonation problems. They had a nice style, but at times the drowned out the flutes and clarinets. Sustaining notes was a big problem with this band, they kept clipping their quarter notes and whole notes, which was resulting into a chopped up sound. This also help ruin the flow of the music.
No, I attempted to sign the song by adding F somewhere else in the composition and it was very difficult because once again the F key is placed in places where the music and words will flow freely without difficulty. If F is always supplied when it is expected, what does that signify for the level of tension the piece creates? As stated earlier, if not for the F key the tension level of the piece would be extremely high since the F key dominates this piece 3. On the one hand, the ending of this piece produces a strong degree of finality. On the other hand, in the middle section the sense of finality is much less complete.
A Thai xylophone known as the Ranad, on the other hand, has a very different system for spacing pitches and does not follow the Pythagorean theories. This is another example of how the pitches in music differ from culture to culture, meaning we do not all hear pitch the same (21). Even if an individual has no formal training in music, we all have developed a form of sensitivity to music, where we can differentiate what notes sound wrong or off and what notes sound correct. If we were to listen to a tune in our Western musical pitches, say on a piano, and hear a melody in the major key, we would automatically be able to tell when a note from a different key is played in the passage, say from a minor key (21).
I also felt I could put feeling into this, improvising; adding crescendo’s and diminuendo’s to create feeling in the piece. In the chorus of the recorded version, mood is created with the addition of the bass guitar and drums, I tried to compensate by making certain parts of the piece Forte, to show that the piece had turned angrier. There is a fairly difficult section in this piece, after the chorus, it is a quick chord sequence. The actual chords are quite close, and don’t take a lot of effort stretching, although the different chords are only semitones apart, so it is very fiddly trying to get all the notes correct. This sounds impressive on the recorded version, and allows the listener to prepare for the next verse If I were to re-record this piece, I would try to find a way of incorporating the bass line with block chords of the left hand, to give a fuller sound.
Rhythm is a huge part in any era of music. Rhythm is a strong, regular, repeated pattern of movement of sound. Any era of music has similarities or differences in rhythm but Baroque rhythm was achieved through rhythmic continuous constant flow of music. The rhythm repeated its self throughout the music by having different kinds of patterns of music that would repeated itself. Some people might think that repetition would become too long, slow, or dull but this had an opposite effect in Baroque era making it even more interesting.
This music is used for all sorts of occasions from traditional rituals such as a wedding, to accompaniments to puppet shows dance and poetry. Unlike what western European people might think, that the players of one of the instruments is playing as an individual, but instead they play in an ensemble, as one instrument. This shows great teamwork which must be hard to keep up. The word gamelan means to hammer, which reflects the way the gongs are played. The instruments used to make gamelan music are; * Ugal * Jegagog * Jublag * Kantil * Pemade * Reyong * Kempli * Suling * Trompong * Kendang * Ceng-ceng * Gongs - Kempur -Kemong The Ugal is generally known for carrying the me... ... middle of paper ... ... pokok; however, it provides melodic leadership and often ornaments the pokok.
While performing a music piece to the audience, what will the audience, who have no experience about instruments, think about the quality of the sound we make? The audience wouldn’t really care; they would think a random sound that come from an instrument is what an instrument can do. However, the truth is, there are lots of techniques we must achieve for a full quality of the sound. One of the technique is called intonation, the accuracy of pitch while playing or singing. It is difficult to reach intonation with many members of players, because each instrument sounds different, they have their own unique sound of one note.
It sounds like there is a base line that goes on throughout the piece, and it sounds like it is played with a tuba. Also, as the piece reaches the end there is a cacophony of different instruments which leaves a person feeling that there was meant to be more, but when in fact there was not. This Jazzalogue was played exceptionally by the student band. The second piece played was a Symphony in B-flat by Paul Hindemith. This piece begins with a cacophony of sounds and is fortissimo like the first piece.
All three instruments playing together sounded horrible but sounded more pleasant as a solo. The instrument together had a rough texture and a fast tempo. I didn’t feel any rhythm in the song but sounded more improvised. In the beginning, the instruments was polyphonic then turned into a solo. The dynamics was very high throughout the songs.
