-chord: taking a few pitches (combination =  make harmonies)

-consonant: relatively unstrained sound  (beautiful) /feels good

-dissonant: relatively harsh (not beautiful)/  doesn’t feel good  

*but when played together they resolve the  dissonant and it sounds what your ears  wanted*

-mode: groups of pitches that cultures use (but  there is an overlap)

>major

TEXTURE: how we hear music happening in  layers (instruments/singers and their voices) -monophony: one melody happening and  nothing else (one musicians/many musicians  playing 1 melody Don't forget about the age old question of What are the major features of representative democracy?

-polyphony: more than one melody happening  at the same time

 -homophony:

-I. melody and accompaniment: support -II. multiple melodies happening with the  same rhythm

Turinos Four Fields of Music Making

1. Participatory Performance  

2. Presentational Performance

3. High Fidelity Recording

4. Studio Audio Art

-Participatory Performance 

>values the number of people  

>no audience distinction

>there is only participants and potential  participants

*> (really important) the goal is to get the  most people to participate

Presentational Performance 

>there is an actual audience

> most likely a stage, microphones for artists >strict line between artist and audience >the goal is to have artistry, contrast, its  better to listen to  

High Fidelity Recording 

>recording that gives you the illusion of a live  performance

>needs to present an iconic hearing of a live  performance  

ex: live albums: concerts that happen to be recorded

field recordings

“music is either ours or someone else’s”

Music and Self, Identity, Culture”

 -self: our body (mind+nervous system+genes) and the total collection of habits that guide  everything we think and do

-identity: partial and variable selection of  habits and attributes used to represent  ourselves and to others but also aspects of  ourselves that we and others want to perceive  as salient/relevant

*difference between self and identity is self is  all of us while identity is parts of ourselves we  want to be and for others to see too*

-culture: habits of thought and practice shared  among individuals

-culture formation: group of people who share a majority of habits that make most parts of each member’s self

-cultural cohort: group of people formed around shared habits based on similarities of parts of  the self; can be positive/negative
