Matthew Michael Dr. Kaunitz MUS 165 Rhythm and Meter How to read music ^ How to visualize rhythm ^ “Painful and slow or Too fast and excruciating” - Rhythm creates an immediate and primal reaction - Rhythmic notation is an imperfect representation of the sound. The legacy of Notation - Before 1150 was not measured evenly as it is today. - Much of the earlier music that was written down was vocal. - Rhythm was dependent on language, and followed the natural pattern of speech. Effect of the Renaissance - Gutenberg's printing press made music less expensive to produce and more available to the middle class - Sheet music became affordable, and was possible to learn without hearing it first. Terms to Know - Beat - Pulse of the music - Rhythm - Length of notes • Relationship between long and short notes. - Tempo - Pace of music - Meter - Organization of beats Rhythm Tree Time Signature Measure Basic Notation Tempo - Speed of the beat, can alter the mood. • (remember, having a metronome app on your phone is “COOL” • This is the difference between Back in Black and Billie Jean. - “Because you cant tell the difference between fast and slow music” Syncopation - Anticipation of beats. How to read music ^
