Music and The Media Notes Week Four General Characteristics of Art: 1.) You are aware of the syntax o Intent is captured o Syntax is part of the experience 2.) It is unique 3.) You can reinterpret it many times 4.) The more you know the more you understand, the more in- depth the experience 5.) Evokes a sense of sublimeness (something that is beyond human comprehension) 6.) Location (usually in a museum to create focus on a piece) 7.) Lasts across time and culture (and its message crosses cultures and withstands the test of time by staying relevant) 8.) Allows for reflection 9.) The purpose is to provoke thought (versus entertainment’s purpose to subdue thought and to relax) 10.) Often relies on archetypes (avoids stereotypes) o An archetype is a common theme/idea that crosses cultures and time Ex. Mother Earth, Darkness/Night, Forbidden love Entertainment Characteristics A diversion from everyday reality Temporary suspension of reality Largely tied into the emotional level, wants to make you feel Associating certain expectations with what you would want or expect from a certain situation or program you put on (ex. You see your favorite comedian so you expect them to be funny) Syntax is what makes it successful you don’t want to be aware of it, but it has to be there (How something is delivered/presented) Media Art Characteristics Relies on stereotypes and clichés o An over simplified image or perspective The beauty of art remains in the syntax
