Music 6 Writing assignment 2
Just like writing assignment 1, this one is to is to make a comparison
between any two pieces from weeks 3 through 6 of the online reserves.
Again, your paper should only be
one or two pages (about 500 words) and should use concepts learned from the
first six weeks of the class.
A good way to organize your thought and keep on topic might be to address
some of the following questions:
- How does the technology used in the piece relate with the way the piece
- Are there different layers of sound and how do they fit together?
- How is the piece organized in time? For example, how does the ending
relate to the rest of the piece? Is it in sections? etc.
- How are sounds being produced or manipulated, and what is the purpose of
the techniques used?
- Is there a relationship between the sound sources used and the
apparent musical purpose(s) of the piece?
