In Rubenstein’s interpretation of the Mazurka, we get a more cohesive journey than other comparable recordings, namely Vladimir Horowitz. This is due to the general sense of pulse that continues throughout the piece, yet is still ebbs and flows. When he takes time to bring attention to a specific chord, note, or resolution, it builds anticipation for the listener. In the symmetrical minor third progression, he speeds up as he reaches the pinnacle of the passage which propels not only the rhythm, but the harmony as well upwards and upwards, making me wonder when it will come crashing down in beautiful dark wet flames. As for the octet, this recording was slightly less rubato than others that I have listened to.
Minor characters constantly play significant roles in dramas, novels and movies. Not only can they be quirky or a source of comic relief, they tend to be placed strategically to help further the plot or give necessary background information on the story at large. There is no doubt that the line count does not matter, if the line is three words long, or repeated in the chorus in a musical minor characters are the back bone of every musical production and cinematic sensation. In Shakespeare’s drama The Tragedy of Hamlet: Prince of Denmark it is significant that minor characters not only provide the play with loveable actors but also give the audience insight of emotions elicited from major characters. Thus, through analyzing the minor characters
I want to be an artist.” he says (36). This direct appeal to further his art, as opposed to wanting to become rich and famous is what makes Callas receptive of Tenor. Her values place singing above everything else in her life, and when given the chance to help extend it byond herself, she leaps at the chance. Across all of the performances in Master Class, Tenor is scripted to have one of the strongest ones. Even Maria remarks “That was beautiful.
Establishing and illustrating the concept of uncanny is a challenging endeavour, however music assists encourage the portrayal of this sensation, although as Sigmund Freud introduces that “the uncanny is that class of the frightening which leads back to what is known of old and long familiar.” To explain this with further precision, emerging from the homely and familiar there is this greater development towards something unusually disturbing the domestic setting and the feeling of the familiar, the home, the known, as opposed to introducing something strange, unfamiliar and inaudibly still. Sound that is provided to an audience within a film is everything and anything one may hear, for instance voices, music or sound effects. Sound heightens particular moments to help the viewer understand the mood created within a scene, indicate a certain setting or surrounding, provide information about characters or enhance the storyline. There are two types of audio that is utilised in cinema: Diegetic and Non-Diegetic sound. Diegetic sound are the manmade sounds we hear on an everyday occurrence within reality, for instance slamming doors, footsteps or dialogue.
All of this being said, her performance was spectacular and showed why she belonged to hold a spot in our memories. Diahann Carroll was able to bring her rich, gentle voice to a well known piece of music and make it her own, through subtle acting and a powerful emotional connection to the words she was singing. In the beginning of the song, Carroll has a low volume with a gentle voice. She may not need to project due to the range of the microphone (this is unknown to the viewer), but her voice carries regardless and holds a great resonation in not only her chest, but also in the room in which she is being recorded in. If her projection staggered any in the quieter beginning of the song she made up for it with superb and unique diction.
The background’s music is composed by veteran franchise composer John Williams. Williams is not only an excellent choice for the movie, but also his themes for the wizardry world make you live the moment. The volume of the music into the background is perfect. Also, the beats, when there is an exciting scene about to happens, are very interesting. For example, in the Quidditch game scene, when Harry Potter (Daniel Radcliffe) was trying to catch the golden ball to win the game, the music was on point because it made us get interested whether Harry (Radcliffe) will catch the ball or not.
The specific scene I have chosen is Grizabella the Glamour Cat lamenting her faded youth and beauty in Memories. With the Mirror Scene in The Phantom of the Opera a realistic acting style would be very effective in convincing the audience of Christine’s belief in the Phantom. Everyone in the Opera house has doubts on the Phantom’s existence, causing Christine to believe she is losing her sense of reality when she hears the phantom’s voice guiding her in her singing. There will be a larger focus on external stimuli in order to convince the audience of the voice that she is hearing. There will be rapt attention focused on this voice even if the audience can’t hear
It involves the timing, selection, and assembly of giving shots to create continuity in a film. In the past, editing was just a means of clear and concise storytelling. In the current film industry, however, editing has placed creative control through means, such as fast-paced cutting, montage techniques, and purposeful jumps. This case is evident in the scene when Charlotte is singing in Karaoke booth. Close-ups of Charlotte and Bob are used when they dance romantically while singing.
Die Antwoord has ridiculous beats and crazy rhymes.At some points in the song ,the singer’s voice is simultaneously adorable and strangely menacing. The transition is quite impressive because the singer alternates without losing the grit of her message. This is important because if a song has good vocal delivery and thrilling beats,there is no need for English translation. Overall these songs are great because they allow listeners to get to know a world outside of their
Throughout the book and film, Marianne is seen as very artistic and thoughtful. She enjoys reading, playing piano, singing and most importantly, taking in nature. This regard for sentiment in nature and art, heightens her sensitivity, or sensibility, but can taint her worldview. She may see life, pain and heartbreak as art, rather than being able to see things logically, or as plainly as they are. In fact, when looking at the foggy, obscured view she asks Margaret, “Is there any felicity in the world superior to this?”.
