[SOLVED] Western Music

Part 1: Think about the two readings you read yesterday.  Think about them independently of one another.  Consider the main point of each, the time each one was written  (Cage 1950, Cixous 1975)  and the conditions each writer was responding to. Think of them in conversation with one another.  Are they in tension with each other?  Do they share common aspirations? Part 2: Finally, choose one of the questions you posed for the Week One Assignment, or a question that interested you from our discussion. I wrote comments on each of the questions you submitted. (My question is : THE FUTURE OF MUSIC: CREDO during eighteenth- and nineteenth-century, what is the media between the reality of the recording studio and Auditory art? The Laugh of the Medusa  When a woman’s heart has a desire stirring inside and immersed in her own world, how should be released?) Refine one of your questions, if you like, and attempt to answer it in a concise, approximately 350-word essay.  Your essay can be less words, and should be no more than 3 paragraphs. Be sure to have a clear thesis statement, that is, one sentence that clearly states the main point you are making.  It should be placed prominently in your paper.  This could be either at the beginning or the end, or set up in a different way that makes it clear what your key sentence is. Be sure to include an example that illustrates or supports the point you are making.  It can be a simple example, but it should help to clarify your point. I am interested in seeing how well you can organize a single thought, and clearly and concisely develop it.  I am looking for a tight, thoughtful, short paper that demonstrates your ability to write and to make a point.  Remember that making a point doesn’t always mean that you have the answer! Look at the Rubric I will be using to score your paper, and be mindful of it while writing.

[SOLVED] Internet Research in the 80s

The 80s were about big projects and events (not to mention “big hair”). including:1) Big changes in media: MTV and VH-12) Big Stars: Michael Jackson, Prince, Whitney Houston, Madonna (to name but a few)3) Big Album Projects: Thriller, Sports, Like a Virgin, Graceland, etc.4) Big Charity/Cause Events: USA for Africa, Band Aid, Live Aid, Sun City, etc.5) Big Technology Changes: CD, DAT, etc.Your assignment is to pick one item from each of the five categories above and do further research on the internet on each. Your research should include specific details on each such as the individual primarily responsible (director, producer, artist, inventor, etc.); participants (band members, research and development, organizations, non-musicians, etc.); purpose, concept, cause, etc.; success of each (album sales, funds raised, changes produced, improvements in sound reproduction, etc.); time table (dates of event, date of release, years in production, etc.).After you have gathered these facts:Write a one paragraph synopsis on each of the five including both the facts you have gathered and your interpretation of these facts (i.e., What do you think about the item as a whole? Was it a successful venture? Why or why not? Your opinion, not someone else’s.).Also include anything you turned up in your research that is something you didn’t know before and is of special interest to you.Finally, who is the one artist who was involved in almost every one of the five areas mentioned?I expect you to get into this assignment and pursue all the leads you turn up. One site should lead to another as you investigate. Actually try to enjoy the process.The most common errors on this assignment are not providing information for each of the five areas; writing in general about many items in one area rather than specifically about one as instructed;  not including the required factual information for each area such as people, dates, etc.;  and not including the sixth item requested regarding one individual involved in most or all.
