Week 2 Notes Dynamics- the loudness or quietness of a note played in music. In modern music, Dynamics can be changed by turning up or down the sound of a certain note. However the problem with compressing a song is the more compressed a song is the more unnatural it seems. Tone Color (tombre) - quality of the sound in music. Rock instrumentation has changed over the years, from the early rock days with 3 to 4 people with a bass, a guitar, and a drum. To the new rock today with 12 or 13 people with violins, accordions, and other different instruments. There are four common Rock music forms: Simple verse form (country and blues) - One section of music that repeats over and over again. Ex. “the first Rock ‘n Roll song” “Rocket 88” Simple verse/chorus form (country and blues) – One section of music that repeats over and over again with a chorus. Ex. “Can the circle be unbroken” Chorus- repeating music and verses after a number of lyrics, the main lyrical part of the song. Contrasting verse /chorus form (country and pop) - the music during the chorus is different than the music of the other verses. Ex. “That’ll be the day” AABA Form (pop) - two different sections of verse and music (rare); ex. A section could have a deep bass with lyrics and B section could have a soft guitar with lyrics. So the order would go Section A twice then Section B then Section A again. Ex. “Great balls of fire” Bridge- part of the song that only happens once. From here we spoke about 4 contemporary artists to understand that there are many subsections of Rock Lucinda Williams- people have trouble labeling her music because of the variety she includes in each of her songs. She won three Grammys for three different genres of music. John Mayer- Singer/Songwriter who shows personal feelings and reflection in some of his songs and Stevie Ray Vaughn’s/ Blues influence on him in some of his other songs. Wilco- started as an Americana band. Known as Indie Rock now. They are most known for their album “Yankee Hotel Foxtrot” which they are most known for and the album was influenced by The Beatles. OutKast- Southern Rap group that was influenced by George Clinton’s funk style. Rap was mostly known out of the northeastern states at the time when OutKast came out. Roots of Rock ‘n Roll music- Pop, R &B, and country, and their substyles.
