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
