Music DQ 1

Question – Every day, people intentionally use music for specific intended outcomes; for recreation, for religious purpose, to change their mood, etc. In what ways do you regularly use music technology to facilitate your own musical intentions? How do your usages of technology and your intended uses differ from others in your social group, people 15 years older than you, and people who were alive 150 years ago? Does the technology still facilitate the same or similar intended outcomes?

MUS363. Illustrate your viewpoint with specific works from visual arts, music, and literature.

The Age of the Renaissance witnessed a new secularization of society,
replacing the God-centered Universe of the Middle Ages with the Human-centeredworld of the 16thcentury. No longer was the church seen as the central authority togive life meaning. Humanists viewed human beings as noble creatures, capable ofachieving fulfillment in the expanding world in which they lived. With this neworientation came the realization that man’s nature also could be rude, selfish, andeven destructive. Discuss the ways in which we see the emergence of the modernindividual who is aware of the challenges to the humanist view of man’s nobilityand goodness. Illustrate your viewpoint with specific works from visual arts,music, and literature.

For your final assignment, you will write a 4-6 page paper on the song of your choosing describing the importance of this song as it pertains to the history of Rock and Roll. You may use the same song as your song form analysis project, but you are not required to use the same song. In writing your paper, you will be assessed on the following:

1) Brief biographical information about the artist(s).

2) Origin of the song you’ve selected, and any musical details/lyrical analysis that makes this song unique.

3) Argument for song’s importance to the development/contribution to Rock and Roll.

4) The use of descriiptive musical language, learned from the text throughout the semester.

5) The use of sources (at least 6) that support your arguments.

Papers should contain 4-6 pages of typed manuscriipt, double-spaced, with 1 inch margins all around, size 12 point font in one of the standard fonts such as Times New Roman. Any quotes or citations you make may follow the style guide of your choosing (MLA, APA, Chicago, Etc). You should also have a title page with your name and the name of your paper. The final page should be a bibliography naming all of your sources. The bibliography and title pages do not count towards your 4-6 page paper requirement.

Music Question

The syllabus says:
The paper should be double spaced and 12pt. Times New Roman, Arial, or any other legible font. Use any standard formatting style you’re comfortable with (MLA, Chicago Turabian, APA).
You can choose one (or more) of the following topics found in Unit 1 of the syllabus to respond to:
“How does music capture the collision of cultures?”
“Anti-Semitism in Salome”
“Orientalism – what happens when you appropriate another culture? The Universality of the Modern vs. the colonial impulse to create the ‘other'”
I expect you to show some interaction with the readings for Unit 1. So, cite at least 2 different sources from the reading list, with page numbers and in-text citation. You don’t need a very formal works cited for this paper, but make sure to include the book/chapter title and the author’s name.
Also, you can discuss one or more of the operas we’ve talked about so far (Salome, Madama Butterfly, Turandot). I suggest using lyrics and time codes (i.e. “At (25:25-) of Madama Butterfly, the music becomes playful and trivial as B.F. Pinkerton makes disparaging remarks…”) so as to provide specific examples relating to your topic of choice. Since we have different versions available for each opera, indicate which version you’re referring to and include a link.
