Final Exam Questions

You are to answer ALL of the following:

REQUIRED: QUESTION 1 and 2

QUESTION 1:

Describe and explain the significance of the following three technologies/formats to the act of making music popular: 1) the radio; 2) television; 3) downloadable music and portables (e.g. streaming platforms such as Spotify, YouTube Music, Tidal, Amazon; and the iPod, iPad, mp3 player). For each format, use course materials/readings or any other research materials to describe each technology/format in relation to one band or artist we have studied in the course (that is, one artist for radio, one for TV, one for downloadable music and portables – 3 artists, one for each format)), and describe how their popularity is influenced and/or augmented by these technologies.

Rubric:
Radio – detailed descriiption of format in relation to popularity artist relation (5 points)
Television – detailed descriiption of format in relation to popularity artist relation (5 points)
Downloadable Music/Portables – detailed descriiption of format in relation to popularity artist relation (5 points)

QUESTION 2:

Pretend you are a music journalist. Begin by listening to/watching the following four songs:

– The Ramones: “Blitzkrieg Bop”

– Donna Summer: “I Feel Love”

– Nirvana: “Come As You Are”

– Wu Tang Clan: “Triumph (ft. Cappadonna)”

Briefly describe how music and musicians can establish new stylistic and/or aesthetic trajectories in the popular music industries. Then, write a short question and answer interview between yourself and two of these four bands/artists. You are to creatively come up with the questions and answers, present them in an interview format, and ensure that the response comments on the nature of music and new stylistic/aesthetic trajectories. You have freedom to determine what you will discuss within this larger theme, so please be creative with this one. For each artist interview, incorporate at least one concept we have discussed in course materials which specifically relates to the artist themselves. You might choose one question per artist, with lengthy answers, or a few short questions for each, with shorter answers.

Rubric:
Overall descriiption of how music can establish new stylistic and/or aesthetic trajectories in the popular music industries – 5 points
Interview 1* – 5 points
Interview 2* – 5 points
*Interview points include, among other elements, the creative, engaging nature of the interview, accuracy of references, and discussion of relevant concept in relation to artist.

Point deductions and conditions of the final exam:
-Improperly labelled files or incorrect file formats (word, rtf, or any other file format) = 2 points deducted for each infraction
-No citations = 5 points deducted per question. Even though this exam is open book, you will absolutely be having/using citations for the final exam on all of your questions. Include all songs listened to (yes, even the songs that are listed on question 2), taken from books, taken from videos, or anything referenced in our lectures or taken from any piece of material that isn’t yours. As with the other assignments, there is no required format style, any style or source listing you chose is fine. CITE EVERYTHING USED!!! For in-text citations, that is citing something directly out of a book or text or website, surround the quote with quotation marks and put the author’s name in parenthesis with a page number (if there is one) immediately afterwards.
-Poor presentation/layout/writing not double-spaced = 3 points per infraction. A well-presented (or at least professional-looking) header of some kind is expected, and its up to you how to present your document(s) (information to include is your name, class, and teacher). You might consider a cover page or introductory page. This is your final exam, and I’ll be looking for a bit of extra effort on the overall presentation side of things. I’ll also be deducting points of poor layouts, formats, or confusing fonts and arrangements.

any resource is acceptable – but CITE!

First Concert review

https://youtu.be/9KxzuY0fJ-s

PLEASE USE THE LINK ABOVE

Virtual concert report

This paper is a “rehearsal” for your final paper. Because of that, the content of both papers is essentially the same. What differs is that the subject of this first concert review is a recorded performance that I have chosen and for the second review you must choose a lengthier recorded concert on your own due to the pandemic.

For the first paper, everyone will be writing a review on the same performance, which can be found
here (Links to an external site.)
.
This is a performance of one of Antonio Vivaldi’s concertos, and was written in the Baroque period. By the time you write the paper, you should have a good idea of what a concerto is. Basically, it is a three-movement composition based on a friendly competition between an orchestra and an instrumental soloist. Informally known as “Winter” from “The Four Seasons” concertos, the official title of this piece is Concerto No.4 in F minor, Op.8, RV 297.

Your report should read much like an in-depth newspaper review, combining factual information with your own critical evaluation and including the following elements:

• name and composition of performing group, location and date of performance if known (intro paragraph)
• general type of concert: string quartet, vocal recital, symphony, choral concert, etc. (intro paragraph)
• physical descriiption of performing group and performance venue
• general descriiption of compositions and musical style.
• more detailed personal descriiption of the concerto. Include musical information on style, rhythmic and melodic features, solos, etc. This is the most important part of the paper. Make sure this descriiption goes beyond the poetic! If you find a piece that reminds you of soldiers marching, butterflies, etc., that’s OK. But you need to tell me what it is in the music that makes you feel that way. Describe melody, tempo, dynamics, rhythms, texture, etc. Do not use a template approach. (In other words, don’t limit all of your descriiptions to the same one or two musical elements, such as tempo.) Remember that this assignment must consist of your personal descriiptions of what you heard. No research needed.

• Many genres of classical music, such as the concerto, are multi-movement. In other words, they consist of more than one section and each is actually an individual piece. For example, a symphony typically consists of four different movements. Other multi-movement genres include concerto, string quartet, suite, cantata, chamber music, sonata, etc. For such genres, you must provide a separate descriiption for each movement.
• your overall reaction to and judgement of the concert
• audience response, as far as you can tell from the recording
Your concert report should be c. 3 pages in length, double-spaced. Top and side margins should be approximately 1” in size with the exception of the left side margin, which may be 1-1/2 “. Use a reasonable font size. Any final paper with substantial errors in grammar and/or spelling will not receive a grade higher than C . Make sure your paper is well organized with introductory and concluding paragraphs and a clear, logical order to the main body of the work.

Coordinate your knowledge gained in class with your comments on the concert. I don’t expect technical formal analyses of compositions, but show me that you understand general terms and genres as covered in class.
If you choose to include any information from a written program or other source, make certain it is as brief as possible and properly cited.

I will be happy to look over drafts that are completed at least a week before the due date. Drafts should be considered your best work and a possible final submission, and not merely notes.
_______________
Further assignment info (also provided under the “Live Concert Review” button)
In this assignment I will be looking for:
– the presence of all required information listed above
– comments that consist of at least 7-8 complete sentences per movement. Don’t write a list; write a paragraph with complete sentences.
– comments that vary to reflect the individuality of each movement. In other words, don’t use a template approach: “The tempo was….the dynamics were….the instruments were…” etc., for each movement.
– don’t call anything a “song” unless someone is singing.
– This paper, and the final concert report, are to reflect YOUR observations only. Even one sentence of descriiption taken from an outside source constitutes plagiarism and will earn you a grade of “zero.”
________________________
Sample (good) student musical descriiption
“In the first movement of the sonata you can clearly hear the predominance of the violin over the piano. There are many sudden dynamic switches between piano and forte, and the violin alternates between playing long held-out notes and shorter, more staccato notes, which gives the impression of rising excitement in the music. As the piece continues the violin and piano begin to echo each other’s flowing musical ideas, and their differing timbres are very striking. Next, the excitement continued to build as the piano began sharply accenting its tones, and there was a clear accelerando in the tempo accompanied by successive crescendos and decrescendos in the dynamics. The movement finished with a suddenly loud passage, followed by a quick very soft ending.”

Things to avoid…

Make sure that your comments (and those on the final live concert report) are not overly general, feature inappropriate use of terminology, or state that something is in a certain style without describing why. The comments below have been extracted from previous years’ assignments, and are examples of the types of overly general or nonsensical remarks to avoid. Hope this helps!

Throughout, the music was monophonic, homophonic, and polyphonic.
The melody and harmony are there, and are distinct and interesting.
This is a female piano piece.
Many dynamics were used, and I like this.
The music was clearly well formed.
The composition clearly contained texture.
The melody of this song is metronome because of how the tempo is.
The melody is in harmony.
The music contains duple and triple harmony.
The ending is unmistakable.
The composer really knows how to use instruments.
I liked the disjunct harmony.
This piece was in retardando style.
The piece had many movements, but they were all the same and very boring.
The piece had a lot of high and low notes, and really impressed me.
The ending made the melody and harmony.
The song was made up of notes, which made it interesting.
The harmony in this piece is tonal.
This piece sounds Italian. (Why?)
This piece sounds French. ”
The symphony had both loud and soft spots.

Aesthetic Sphere essay. It is a myth that aesthetic culture is perched on top of the material and technical culture and serves as a decoration for it. From an evolutionary perspective, technical society is the superstructure sitting on top of a culture that is fundamental and aesthetic. The aesthetic sphere is linked to our very consciousness. Explain how songs can be a record of civilization, emotional experiences, and social justice. This should be written in essay form and be at least three pages, double spaced.
