Folk Music Art Music and All That Jazz Assessment Folk music has its roots in oral tradition meaning that it is passed from one person to another without the use of written documents or music scores In jazz performers have wide creative freedom even when they are playing from a score Short segments of piano play are examples of piano ri s played at the end of a phrase following the full ensemble Jazz incorporates elements of folk music Art music has traditionally been created by trained professional musicians Folk music jazz music and art music are not mutually exclusive genres Folk music is as rich and varied as the peoples that have and continue to produce it to this day This makes folk music difficult to define A piece of folk music typically changes throughout the years Critics do not agree on how to categorize jazz with respect to art music Folk music belongs to the community even though it may have been created by an individual Riffs are short melodic and rhythmic patterns Dark Eyes re ects the Russian national character While it is true that not all music can be approached with the same set of expectations in mind one category of music or musical style is not simply superior to another Duration Assessment In the Western music tradition the note symbol ie its shape indicates duration Rhythm is the essential element in music Just as there are quarter notes there are quarter rests The duration of a note is indicated by whether the note head is filled in or not and the number of ags on the stem A rest symbol indicates a period of silence In the Western music tradition the note symbol ie its shape only indicates duration The value of the whole note serves as the basis for the relative value of all the other notes Time values in music are expressed in relative terms In the Western music tradition sound is represented in written form through musical notation Pitch Assessment 0 Regardless of how hard you pluck it a long string will always vibrate at a slower frequency than a shorter one and therefore will produce a lower pitch 0 One Hertz represents one cycle per second 0 It is important to recognize that pitch is a relative concept 0 The frequency of the lowest sound that the normal human ear can perceive ranges between 16 and 20 Hertz 0 The audible frequency spectrum in humans ranges between 16 and 20000 Hertz 0 An increasing rise in pitch suggests an increase in tension Naming Pitches Assessment 0 Specific pitches or tones are referred to with letter names using the letters A through G 0 The interval between any two adjacent C39s on the keyboard is called an octave 0 The pitch letter names correspond to the white keys on a piano keyboard 0 The black key to the right of G is called G sharp 0 When keys that correspond to consecutive letter names are played sequentially they create a scale 0 If you take any pitch on the keyboard the next occurrence of the same letter name going towards the right up will vibrate twice as fast 0 The black key to the right of the A on the keyboard can be called A sharp or B at 0 The black key between F and G is called F sharp or G at 0 The white key located between the group of two black keys on the keyboard is D 0 If the frequency of the C in the middle is 256 Hz the corresponding frequencies on either side of that C are 512 Hz on the one to the right and 128 Hz on the one to the left Assignment 2 Listening 0 First off I chose to analyze Frederic Chopin s Mazurka No 24 in C major Op 33 and No3 located in introductory concepts 0 To analyze the piece from the point of view of a Referential Listener simply recall what a referential listener is A referential listener is a person that relates to music mainly through extramusical connections or associations So basically how does it make you feel This is a case by case answer but for example one could say the piece draws feelings of reassurance in times of hardship 0 Important speculation regarding this piece Chopin is rumored to have written it as a reaction to the Russian occupation of Warsaw when he heard the news 0 The musical concept here is that of a solo performer using variation This is shown through the alternating sections of A and B or the alternation between mellow and upbeat tunes
