Minimalist music is enhanced in both art and music like in expressionism. Other music styles were also influenced by Minimalist music like Pop, Techno, Ambient, Punk etc. Progressive Rock, Experimental Rock, Alternative Rock also used repetitive structures in their music. In a more broad and general sense, minimalism in the paintings, architecture and other arts influenced music. Music is generally made up with single rhythm repetition and iteration such as those of the compositions of La Monte Young, Terry Riley, Steve Reich, Philip Glass and John Adams.
In the words of Kyle Gann, “Who wants to be limited to one idea, one texture, one sound-concept, in every work? Not very many composers. And so the young listened critically, absorbing minimalist strategies but meanwhile planning new ones of their own.” (Kyle Gann, 1998). Post Minimalists sought to create a consistent musical language in which to compose. This involved the use of a steady pulse, usually continuing throughout a work or movement; a diatonic pitch language, tonal in effect but avoiding traditional functional tonality; general evenness of dynamics, without strong climaxes or nuanced emotionalism; and unlike minimalism, an avoidance of obvious or linear formal design.
This uneven growth led to a poorer, agricultural south and a richer industrialized north. This then led to tension in Italy. One of the ways Marinetti suggested to get rid of the past was to destroy all the museums. He claimed people created new things by destroying the old. To Marinetti, violence was a must.
It is known as “Oxford” because Haydn presented this symphony at the Sheldonian Theater at Oxford University in July 1791, where he was awarded a honorary doctorate degree. This symphony displays Haydn’s mature style of composition, presenting his capability to utilize thematic development, counterpoint and a mixture of distinctive moods. This work calls for flute, pairs of oboes, bassoons, horns in G and trumpets in C, timpani, and strings. Similar to Stamitz’s, “Oxford” symphony is written in four movements and has similar tempo structure; I. Adagio-Allegro Spiritoso, II. Andante Cantabile, III.
Introduction In the early 1910’ s both Europe and America experienced an artistic revolution. This revolution took the form of Dada, an anti- art movement that broke down several boundaries within the art world. Dada’s iconoclastic attitude was unconventional and challenged the limitations of a society that had brought about the First World War. The unpredictability of the movement shocked the public, a public who the Dadaists purposely provoked in attempts to convey their message and bring about change. The following analysis will clearly demonstrate how the characteristics of unconventionalism, unpredictability and conveying information or messages to an audience, define the meaning of entropy.
Consequently, the Aesthetics criticism was highly alarming to more conventional Victorians. Thus, Aestheticism was roundly criticized. Oscar Wild 's "The Critic As Artist" was highly attacked as it highlights the importance of the form and beauty over the content and the useful meaning of the text. To illustrate, Wilde 's essay stresses upon the fact that personal impressions of the surface beauty of the work of art are everything needed to view it rather than analyzing its deeper meaning. His criticism, therefore, strips the text out of its meaning and hidden messages, it
5.1 Drums Drums are one of the primary African instruments. Differing in size and shape, the specific drums used within particular cultures is largely dependent on the materials available to produce instruments. Drums are essential to political and religious ceremonies, and are also used as accompaniment to dancing and regulating the pace of work. (Ewens 1991: 22; Kamien n.d.) One
The silencing of language by autocratic dictatorial leaders is an abuse of power that has brutal consequences on society. The consequent destruction of creativity and individual expression leads to submission and a collective inability to revolt against such despots. The displays of corruption by these leaders is demonstrated through their mass manipulations of the collective, which are enforced by oppression and dehumanisation. Throughout the twentieth century, there was significant social and political upheaval as a consequence of rapid industrialisation, war, and extreme class disparity. The dangers of such regimes are explored in the futuristic, dystopian worlds of Fritz Lang’s, Metropolis and George Orwell’s, Nineteen Eighty-Four.
