What is Music?

  • The Organization of Sound in Time

  • Sound

  • Time

  • Organization


Hearing vs listening l.jpg

Hearing vs Listening

  • Passive listening (hearing) - being mildly aware of sound

  • Active listening - concentrating on sounds.

Properties of Objects

  • Size

Elements of Music

Pitch

Duration

Dynamics

Timbre


Pitch l.jpg

Pitch

  • High or low sounds (notes)


Pitch11 l.jpg

Pitch

  • High or low sounds (notes)

  • Melody - the “tune”. A series of pitches heard one at a time.

  • Motive - a short, instantly recognizable idea. Like a musical "word". Usually, a melody consists of several motives.


Pitch12 l.jpg

Pitch

  • Harmony: Two or more sounds heard at the same time. Chords.

  • Consonant - stable sound

  • Dissonant - unstable sound


Pitch13 l.jpg

Pitch

  • Interval - The distance between two pitches.

  • Conjunct - step (small interval)

  • Disjunct - leap (large interval)


Pitch14 l.jpg

Pitch

  • Vibrato - a rapid, slight variation of pitch.

  • Produces a stronger, richer tone.

  • Done by voices and instruments (many, but not all).


Pitch15 l.jpg

Pitch

  • Phrase - Part of a melody - when singing, as much as you sing in one breath


Pitch16 l.jpg

Pitch

  • Shape - the contour of a melody - mapping out the highs and lows.


Pitch17 l.jpg

Pitch

  • Cadence - Resting place. Complete (final / permanent) or incomplete (temporary or a mid-way pause).

  • A phrase will often end with a cadence.


Duration l.jpg

Duration

  • The element of time.


Duration19 l.jpg

Duration

  • Beat - the steady pulse that flows through a piece of music.

  • Fast or slow

  • May be easy to hear (or feel), or it may not be.

  • Nonmetric - If the beat is not evident.


Duration20 l.jpg

Duration

  • Meter - how the beats are grouped.

  • Most often in either in 2, 3 or 4 (most common)

  • Usually first beat is accented.

  • Occasionally, meter is in another grouping.


Duration21 l.jpg

Duration

  • Tempo - the speed of the beats.

  • Fast or slow.

  • Remember, the beat usually remains steady


Duration22 l.jpg

Duration

  • Rhythm - a pattern of beats and accents, shorts and longs.

  • Often the rhythm is a pattern that repeats.


Duration23 l.jpg

Duration

  • Syncopation - when the emphasis falls on a beat that is normally not accented.

  • An exception in “classical” music, but a feature of “popular” music.


Dynamics l.jpg

Dynamics

  • Volume. Loud or soft

  • The relative loudness or softness.

  • Relative - loud to a flute is not the same as loud to a trumpet!


Dynamics25 l.jpg

Dynamics

  • p = piano - soft

  • f = forte - strong (or loud)

  • Mezzo- = medium or half

  • -issimo = very


Dynamics26 l.jpg

Dynamics

  • pp = pianissimo

  • p = piano

  • mp = mezzo-piano

  • mf = mezzo-forte

  • f = forte

  • ff = fortissimo


Dynamics27 l.jpg

Dynamics

  • pp - p - mp - - mf - f - ff

  • -3 -2 -1 (0) 1 2 3


Dynamics28 l.jpg

Dynamics

  • Crescendo - gradual increase in volume

  • Decrescendo - gradual decrease in volume

  • Subito - sudden change in volume


Timbre l.jpg

Timbre

  • A description of the actual sounds you are hearing.


Timbre30 l.jpg

Timbre

  • Timbre can be a list of the instruments or voices that you hear.

  • Timbre can also refer to the variations in tone color of a specific instrument (a bright guitar or dark voice).
