Matthew Michael Dr. Kaunitz MUS 165 Four Types of Composers Different Types - Spontaneously Inspired • Prolific, uncontrollable well of creativity - Franz Schubert, Hugo Wolf, Mozart • Each wrote a song a day Best short musical compositions • - Constructive Type • The Mule • Musical themes that are fragmented. • Rough Drafts and hard work - Aaron Copland, Beethoven - Traditionalist • Bach, Giovanni Palestrina • Begins with a pattern, instead of a theme • Did not create new forms, but improved existing ideas. - Pioneer • Opposes conventional solutions. • “They basically just trip on acid” - Dr. Kaunitz • Hector Berlioz, Claude Debussy, Edgar Varese. Pitch What is Pitch? - Sound wave vibrations • Our ears organize certain vibrations into recognizable tones. • Sound is a series of compressions and rarefactions in molecules in the air around us. • Notes in a scale. - Loudness • The distance of a sound traveling during an oscillation determines loudness. - Further distance traveled = Louder - Smaller distance traveled = Softer - Human Hearing • The range of human hearing is about 20 - 20,000 Hertz - Although we can hear the extremes of this range, we don't assign them to a pitch because they are difficult to identify. Emotional Content - Pitches combine to create melodies • High notes can signal excitement or urgency • Low notes can signal foreboding or sadness
