Title: Experiencing Music


1
Experiencing Music
  • One of the most pleasurable AURAL or hearing
    related experiences is listening to music.

2
  • Different levels of attentiveness impact how we
    listen to music. There are 3 types of listening
    that we will explore in this chapter.
  • Casual listening when music blends in with the
    background, considered elevator music
  • Sensuous listening when the listener becomes
    completely absorbed in the music, considered
    goose bump music.
  • Perceptive listening listening to and
    appreciating music for its full range of
    technical and expressive qualities

3
  • The more we understand music, the more apt we are
    to have a peak experience. Many people call
    this an AESTHETIC experience.
  • Aesthetic is characterized by a heightened
    sensitivity to the content, form, or emotional
    impact of an artistic work or event.

  • Situation 1 sitting in the reviewing stand at a
    July 4th parade, noisy crowd, hawking vendors,
    band is approaching in the distance
  • Situation 2 band arrives at the viewing stand,
    musicians face the crowd, people are emotionally
    stirred by the music
  • Situation 3 in class analyzing the musical
    aspects of the march, focusing on the social
    function of the music.

5
Becoming a Perceptive Listener
  • We rely on the aspects of music we know about to
    analyze the music we listen to, including melody,
    rhythm, harmony, timbre, texture, and form.
  • The more you know about these elements the easier
    it is to understand the music you hear.

6
  • Most of the music you hear is based on a scale.
  • A scale is a sequence of tones arranged in rising
    pitches. Most of the music we hear is based on
    major or minor scales.
  • Major scales are sequences of eight pitches built
    on the pattern of 2 whole steps, 1 half step, 3
    whole steps, 1 half step (WWHWWWH)

7
Intervals
  • Just as in math, an interval is the distance
    between two objects - in this case, two pitches.
  • A melody can move up or down, by step or skip.
    We memorize the sounds of the intervals to link
    the notes together.
  • Perfect 4th
  • Perfect 5th
  • Major 6th
  • Octave -

How we experience music
  • Experiencing music alone we choose music to
    match our mood
  • Experiencing music together how we react to
    music depends on the type of music, how it is
    being used, and where you hear it
  • Musicians work hard to communicate the
    expressive qualities and technical demands of the
    music they are performing. AGREE OR DISAGREE?

Performing Music Alone
  • Guitar Libby Larsen has called the electric
    guitar the most important musical instrument of
    the past 50 years.
  • The method for tuning a guitar was developed so
    musicians could minimize movement of the left
    hand. In MOST situations, the left hand pushes
    down the strings to change chords while the right
    hand strums.
  • Native American Flute Today, there is a renewed
    interest in the instrument. Artist John Rainer
    Jr.

10
Performing Music Together
  • Texture - the way sounds are woven together
  • Ensemble cooperative musical expression
  • Monophonic in unison with everyone sounding the
    same pitch or octave at the same time
  • Mariachi a musical group with several violins,
    trumpets, large bass guitar, and special 5 and 6
    string guitars.
  • Virtuoso a performer with brilliant, flawless
    technique

11
Criteria for Critiques
  • More than ones opinion, its presenting facts
    about the performance
  • Critics look at many different criteria for
    critiques
  • Timbre
  • Expressiveness
  • Technique
  • Presentation
  • Impact -

12
  • Critics DO have an impact on the success of an
    artist.
