Choice: Analysis of a Sonata Form from a Symphony. As detailed an analysis as yo

Choice: Analysis of a Sonata Form from a Symphony.
As detailed an analysis as you’re able for a full Sonata form symphonic movement. Like the previous assignment, it’s in a minor key, and follows (more or less, anyway) the typical sonata form outline. Use the timer to indicate all the sections of the work (P, T, S, and C) Where the repeat of the exposition is, where the development is and what material Mozart uses, and the P, T, S, and C of the recap.
Here is a good strategy to get you started:
1. Find where the repeat of the exposition is, and work backwards from there.
2. Find the S theme (when analyzing minor key works, the S theme is very often in a major key, thus easy to hear)
3. Listen A LOT to find the places where you feel the T and C begin. You can “make a case” for your decision about these areas, as not all works have easy, clear answers.
4. After you’ve worked out the Exposition (P, T, S, C) and it’s repeat, find the beginning of the Recap (you’ll want to listen for a return of the P theme, which is usually easy to identify).
5. Find the parts of the recap by comparing them to the Exposition. But remember, the composer will likely make some changes here to accommodate the retention of the home key, so the areas may not be the same length as they were in the exposition.
6. Identify where the development is and then dig through it and identify which parts, if any, are related to the parts of the exposition and which, if any, are new.
7. Finally, use the “Words for Analysis” at the bottom of this module, to help you describe the material in each section. This way, you’ll have some practice putting into words the things that you hear. You are not limited to the “Words for Analysis,” but these are intended to give you some ideas for description of the material. Also be sure to describe what instrument(s) are playing each section along with a description of the material itself. Do this for each entry in your analysis. It’s also one of the ways you can describe any changes in the material.
Your answers should look as follows, and should be entered directly into this assignment as text:
Exposition:
P – (time) 0:00 Intense, fast strings followed quickly by a loud full-orchestra begins…. (etc)
T – (time)
S – (time)
C – (time)
Repeat of Exposition, continue to include times:
P
T
etc
Development: (time) to (time): Then a brief description of what, if any, previously-heard material is used.
Recap (continue to include times):
P
T
S
C
Coda, If any appears

Writing prompt: Five musical works are posted here as listening assignments. One

Writing prompt:
Five musical works are posted here as listening assignments. One is rather long, the other three are between 6 and 12 minutes, more or less. They are each quite different from one another: in the resources they use, in their aesthetic approaches, in their musical objectives, in their formal shape as artworks.
In this writing, I ask you to choose three of these pieces to concentrate on. And then your assignment is to pair each of the three pieces you have chosen with another piece from earlier in our course, and to write about how the piece from this assignment relates to that other piece. So, this assignment asks you to review and re-listen to earlier works from the standpoint of a new piece that you are now listening to for the first time.
(Note: all of the music from earlier in the course is still posted, and I have added a few that we listened to only in lecture.}
Thus you will write three sections, each one based on a pairing of one of the works above with one of the works from earlier in the course. Each section should be around 1000 words, but can be more.
The earlier pieces you choose could be based on contrast or similarity; it could be a piece that one of these pieces simply reminds you of; it could be a piece that gives you a similar listening experience. Try to avoid pairing pieces just based on “style” or “genre”. Try to look through the superficial categorization of pieces (“classical”, “pop”, etc.) and treat the pieces as ways to build an aesthetic experience through sound and music. Describe the pieces, especially the materials used (to the best of your ability) and their formal shape. Describe the logic of your pairing, the reasons you made that particular choice. And step back and consider the experience for the listener that the piece seems to propose.

Choose a pre-programmed prezi presentation

Finding the connections between artists and their influences from a historically previous artist helps you to develop a deeper understanding of each artist’s music. You’ll research the inspiration behind a current musician or producer, walking back a connective chain to creators releasing music from 1977 or earlier. Your research will culminate in an interactive Prezi complete with streaming video examples.
Below I attached the example video.
• Pick up the Prezi progress from your Six Degrees Of Kraftwerk Set Up assignment. Be sure to look at your grade and feedback for that assignment. You have everything here to start from the beginning if you missed Six Degrees Of Kraftwerk Set Up.
Newest Artist/Last Ten Years:
Continue with- or start with- your modern recording artist, producer, composer/songwriter, or remixer that started their professional career in the last ten years. Let’s define the term professional career as the point in which artists are making their living from music.
Professional Career Research:
We suggest using allmusic.com to look up your artist, producer or songwriter. Once in allmusic, use the Credits or Discography tab. If their professional credits or first album start within ten years of this date, you have a solid Newest Artist. Allmusic commonly include album release dates with month and date.
If your subject is a recording artist, use the Discography tab to look up their first release.
If your subject is a producer, composer/songwriter, or remixer, you can also track the recordings through the Credits tab. Similarly, discogs.com can serve a similar function if allmusic.com doesn’t deliver.
Six Artists Minimum, Newer To Older In Every Connection:
Referencing the flowchart above, create a linear timeline/story in Prezi. Each successive artist should move further back in the timeline. Artist 2 is the influence on the Newest Artist and has had a longer professional career. Artist 3 is the influence on Artist 2 and has the longer professional career. Follow this Newer To Older format for each influencing artist.
At Least One Artist/1977 Or Earlier:
At least one of your artist/producers needs to have started their professional career in 1977 or earlier to qualify for the Oldest Artist rubric credit. This 1977 or earlier artist/producer doesn’t need to be Kraftwerk. We use Kraftwerk as the example and assignment title because most of electronic, computer software/in-the-box music production can be connected up the the legendary German creators.
HOW TO FIND ARTIST INFLUENCES
The historical links are to be direct connections between artists/producers/songwriters* and should be one of the following:
Collaborated/Covered/Remixed:
Each connecting artist/producer/songwriter has produced/collaborated with, played the music of/covered or made a commercially released remix of the previous connecting artist/producer.
Each connecting artist/producer that you introduce can be used for rubric credit once. Example: once you use Michael Jackson, you cannot get separate rubric credit by using Jackson 5 as the next artist. Simply write about Jackson 5 in your Michael Jackson section if you need to connect the group to an older influencing artist/producer.
Sampled/Musical Quote:
Each connecting artist/producer/songwriter has sampled (used someone else’s sound recording) or musically quoted (also known as interpolation) the previous connecting artist/producer. WhoSampled.com is a solid clearinghouse for sampled and musical quote/interpolation usage. If you use a WhoSampled page, that can also be your APA citation for influence proof.
Stated The Influence In An Interview:
Each connecting artist/producer/songwriter has used a technique developed/popularized by or was inspired to make music by the previous connecting artist/producer. Prove the direct connection between your artists/producers by using text or video interviews, official artist websites or liner notes from releases. You need an artist’s quote or biography text from their official website that states their influence. Add the artist’s quote in your Prezi.
*Accepted job titles in your Prezi: artist/groups, producers/remixers, songwriters/composers, and professional DJs. These roles are commonly involved in influencing musical output.
Avoid these job titles in your Prezi: engineer/mix engineer and executive producer. Why? Engineers/mix engineers commonly execute the wishes of the producer and/or artists rather than influence musical output. An executive producer is literally an executive- involved in managing the broader business aspects of a project.
• You will create a Prezi containing with at least seven frames including an Intro frame (with your name, course and instructor and one for each of the artists/producers you are linking together. You should have a minimum of six frames to your 1977 or earlier artist or producer on the other end. No Prezi account? Click here to create a Basic Free account.

It is your responsibility to preview all the media that you utilize to make sure that it is functioning when your instructor checks it.
Music Video, Too:
Make sure that there is music embedded in every frame. If you use an embedded video of an interview, include an additional embedded video that demonstrates the artist’s music, too.
Biography/Influence Text And Word Count:
Write a short biography of the artist. Include dates. Be sure that you cover how each artist is linked to the artist that influenced them. Be literal. Include artist quotes about their influences if you are using interviews as proof. Reach a 60-word minimum explanation based on your biography and influence research. Do not copy and paste blocks of biography text from an internet site, as no rubric word count credit will be awarded.
Use the resources of the Full Sail Media Center whenever possible, including EBSCOhost and the AP photo archive.
APA Citations:
You must cite all the sources you used for biography and influences information in each frame or in a References frame at the end of your Prezi. Stream the video on APA citations formatting as a step-by-step review.
Wikipedia is not an acceptable citation source. Since anyone can edit information, it is not reliable and quite easy to falsify. You can use Wikipedia as a starting point.
