Name: Claudia Mancl Date: February 20, 16 Interview a Musician Arrange an interview with a performer or conductor. Ask the musician the questions below, along with any others that you supply. Keep in mind that a certain percentage of your grade will be based on the thoughtfulness and persuasiveness of your writing in the final ‘Comments’ section. Please be concise and clear in your answers. Interview Questions: What is your name? Sean Sison Are you a performer, conductor, or both? Performer How long have you studied music? This is my first year studying it What instrument(s) do you play? I can play the guitar and piano Do you sing? Yes If so, what voice range? Baritone In which music ensembles have you participated? In what capacity? I haven't performed in any large scale ones since high school which was just the high school band performances. Other than that I enjoy creating music with my friends and playing it for my peers. Do you take part in concerts frequently? No Approximately how many performances a year? I have not been in one since high school Describe a recent performance in which you participated (group, which instrument/voice, and repertory performed). I recently put on a small show with my friends who also enjoy music like I do. I did vocals and played the guitar. How is active participation in musicmaking different from passive listening? It helps you really feel the emotion behind the music, instead of just simply putting it together. It makes the process more thoughtful and the end product turns out much more personal. What decisions do you make while performing music? I decide what emotions I want to put into my music, and what audience it will appeal to. What genre I am going for is also a big decision. What styles of music do you most often perform? Lately I have been experimenting with techno music and remixing my voice into it. Aside from that, I love to perform acoustic songs with just my guitar and my voice. Describe the specific styles that you perform frequently. Acoustic or techno Do you now (or do you plan to) make your living as a musician? I currently go to college as a full time student, but in the future I plan to make my living producing music. Comments: Music is truly my passion and I hope I can do what I love, but at the same time make a living which would be an ideal life for me. Interview a Musician Appreciation of Music, MUEL1832 Page 1 of 2 What are the advantages of a career in music? You can really express your creative side and make the music your own by making it unique to you. What are the disadvantages? It is not as much of a stable career because I do not know if my music will be loved like I love it, so it is not guarenteed that I will make money. Comments: I loved doing this assaignment because it made me think about the other side of music, instead of my side of just listening to it. So much thought goes into making and performing music that I did not really realize was there previously. This assaignment also allowed me to get to know this performer a lot more than I had before, since their music is who they are. There is such a wide range of people who are considered performers and I think I got to speak to one of the unique ones who is taking on such a modern style of music.
