Interludes for Prepared Piano

Instructions Check the video and answer the questions. #1 John Cage Sonatas and “Interludes for Prepared Piano, Sonata II” (1946-48) This piece is written for piano but certainly doesn’t sound like the traditional tone color of the piano.  Describe the tone colors that are generated by this “prepared piano.”  What is a prepared piano? How are some of the particular tone colors that you hear produced by this acoustic instrument?  What influenced Cage to invent “the prepared piano”?https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oL_UdQf704A You can watch a short video on how to prepare a piano here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=myXAUEuECqQ #2  Edgard Varese “Poème électronique” (Electronic Poem: 1958) The first stage of music produced electronically in the twentieth-century was called “musique concrete.”  Composers recorded sounds onto audiotape, and then manipulated them in the studio to produce a fixed performance of the piece.  Varese’s Poem Electronique is perhaps one of the most famous of these works.  read about it in your textbook before you listen.  Try to put yourself back in 1958 and think about the technology that was available at that time.  Listen carefully to try to discern some of the raw sound material.  How do you think this piece was received in 1958? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qTMSllIv2lw #3  John Adams “Short Ride on a Fast Machine” (1986) John Adams is most often referred to a “postminimalist” composer.  Listen to his “Short Ride in a Fast Machine” and discuss why this piece could be described as “minimalist.”  Does this piece aptly portray its title?  What specific types of musical techniques does he use in this piece to create perpetual motion? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5LoUm_r7It8 #4  Kaija Saariaho “L’amour de loin” (Love from Afar: 2000) Saariaho’s career has produced music that has used techniques of live electronics, mixed media (music, text, tape, electronics, dance, video). What is the impact of the mix of traditional instruments and electronic sounds?   How does this opera compare with the others we have studied in class, i.e. Mozart, Verdi, Wagner? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DKBm9mKWJVU #5 Tania Leon “Inura” (2009) Using the vocabulary you have learned so far in the course, describe the basic characteristics of this piece.  Explain how Leòn utilizes call and response during this movement.

Directions: Answer all three questions as indicated. Questions: 1. In your own words, define ‘flow’ as it relates to hip hop. Is there a specific rapper who’s flow you particularly like? What about their flow is appealing to you? (at least 150 words) 2. Adam Krim suggests three categories of flow which he calls “Sung Flow”, “Percussion Effusive Flow” and “Speech Effusive Flow”. Professor Babin offers a detailed discussion of how rappers flow using rhythmic placement which he terms “Regular”, “Regular Syncopated”, “Irregular Syncopated”, “Parallel” and “Divergent”. In your own words, define all of the types of flow listed above. How might Professor Babin’s rhythmic specific types of flow relate to the three categories suggested by Adam Krim? Can you think of any other ways to describe and distinguish an artist’s flow? (at least 150 words) 3. In 2-4 paragraphs, address the following prompt: (at least 350 words) Why would there be resentment between one location and another when one appears to be becoming more popular than the other, especially since we all agree that popularity is not the most important thing in terms of “art” . Think about the question not just in terms of East vs. West but in terms of the rise of the South. Does this same kind of issue arise in other genres of music, and, if it does, does it come from the same mental place?

Rock and Roll

Rock and Roll have evolved to be a platform for many controversial topics in music and in the world. One of the most controversial is an audience and their perception of sex and its interpretation through the use of music. Older generations believe Rock and Roll is corrupting the youth in promoting sex and the youth are just being “young and free” Artists of rock music, throughout its history, have used their music to respond to the political and social issues surrounding them. Some have used their music as a means to express their political or philosophical views, while others have used their music to demonstrate a certain event or time in history. For example, consider how The Doors, Donovan, and Jimi Hendrix each put their own spin on the “psychedelic” experience or how Dylan’s songs, “The Time’s They Are A-Changin’” and “Subterranean Homesick Blues” are a call to break with the norms of the past and take a cynical look at the generation gap. To comment on social and political issues, bands such as Country Joe and the Fish, with their song “I Feel like I’m Fixin’ to Die Rag”, used their performances at Woodstock to protest the Vietnam War, while the Supreme’s “Love Child” and the Temptation’s “Papa Was a Rolling Stone” take a realistic look at the urban issues of single parenthood and poverty. For this project, you will research and create a presentation on the influence a single social or political issue has had on rock and roll music during the years 1955-1973. Your focus may be on one rock and roll band or on a rock as a whole. Use the topic you selected in Module 2 and the sources you cited in Module 5. Present your topic by writing a paper with a minimum of 550-700 words.  Your paper should be written in APA format and use a 12 point font. The project must include: A thesis statement An introduction, a body and a conclusion A minimum of three (3) sources Reference to one social issue as indicated above and at least one musical group or on rock and roll in general and how the music was impacted by the social issue At least two (2) links to outside songs or videos
