Music | Applied Sciences homework help

Reflection Essay 2 [choose one of the two options]. 

Don’t do both essays — just one will suffice.

Start by choosing one example of music from our textbook CD set (please use one you are not already familiar with, one that is “far away” from your home culture or experience). The playlists from the book are available here:

CD1 (Links to an external site.)

CD2 (Links to an external site.)

CD3 (Links to an external site.)

  • Essay A: How many instruments (including voices) do you hear? Do your best to describe each instrument you hear using the Sachs-Hornbostel system. Do your best to figure out what the vibrating medium is, or to discern the technique used to produce sound. How do you think the vibrating medium was set into vibration? Describe what you latched onto as a listener since you can’t see the instrument.
  • Essay B: Listen to the dominant melody in your excerpt (if you can pick it out) and try to identify its melodic contour. Draw the contour (shape) if you can, using a portion that you can fit onto this single page.  Also, make note whether you hear repeating material in the example you choose. How long are the repeated segments you hear, in terms of minutes or seconds?

You might find an appropriate way to create a drawing just in the word-processing program or textbox you use using your computer keyboard, but you might also consider drawing the image by hand and then using a phone or other device to capture the image and then connect it to your written text. 

You might note whether the example you chose seems to fit with one (or more) of the basic phonic structures we learned about — monophony, homophony, heterophony, or independent polyphony.
