One meaning is self-expression in “giving vent to our feelings” by referring what he or she feel. Another meaning is presentation of an idea through a symbol combination of meaningful words. Langer emphasizes on her argument on reasons on language is a form of communication. She interprets that, “Language will formulate new ideals as well as communicate old ones, so that all people know a lot of things that they have merely heard or read about” (8). She adds on about concept of symbolic expression extends the knowledge beyond the scope of the actual experience.
Voiles, from Book I of Preludes by Claude Debussy was written during a time when Impressionism and Symbolism were thriving in music, art, literature, and poetry. With symbolism, artists broke away from traditional techniques in order to indirectly evoke specific emotions, images, and concepts without merely describing them. Symbolist poets often used strategic spatial placement, word sizing, and nontraditional grammar in order to add nuance to the meaning of the text. Impressionism was a similar art movement in that it avoided directly depicting images. Some have applied impressionist interpretations to the works of various composers, but impressionism was typically found in paintings where the images looked almost out of focus and oddly cropped, with the juxtaposition of contrasting colors that portrayed the effects of light.
The different circumstances of an individual’s thought are what makes their process of discovery and in saying that it shapes their viewpoint on interpersonal relationships, sense of identity and emotional. These ideas are well explained in both Oodgeroo Noonuccal’s poems, ‘Son of Mine’ and ‘The Past’ and Mathew Thorne’s short film, ‘Where Do Lilacs Come From’. As we can see that the only way discovery takes place is when our context puts us under the pressure, whether it is an alteration in the circumstances or opposing nature of situational context itself. Only then can change occur. The circumstances in which interpersonal relationships of an individual can take place and are what makes discoveries to occur.
‘Romanticism encouraged composers to seek individual paths for expressing intense emotions, such as melancholy, longing, or joy. Composers respected conventions of form or harmony to a point, but their imagination drove them to trespass limits and explore new realms of sound’ (Burkholder, Grout and Palisca, 2014) Discuss this statement as an interpretation of the Romantic concept of music in relation to one or more genres. Cite as many examples as you think appropriate; choose one work in particular and write a detailed critical/analytical account of that work. The evolution of music can be viewed as a linear timeline of key, innovative composers who have far-reaching influences upon the sphere of music and perhaps epitomise the societal views
Introduction ‘Language gives shape and organisation to thought’ (Winch, Ross- Johnston, March, Ljungdahl & Holliday, 2010. Pg 467). Several fascinating aspects of language include it being a form of communication, which interprets information and passes messages from one person to another. For each individual language is different due to cultural backgrounds and beliefs, different communities and also the individuals’ capabilities. Speaking to a person verbally is not the only form of language, it can be writing, reading, listening and even body language.
In today’s digital world, text-centered communication method has shifted to images-oriented. Jewitt (2008) defines multimodality as meaning “made through the situated configurations across image, gesture, gaze, body posture, sound, writing, music, speech” (p. 246). This indicates that although language is usually considered as the central channel of communication, there are also other routes such as verbal and body language, images, and voice through which individuals’ can represent significant meanings (Kress & Jewitt, 2003; O’Halloran, 2011). In this respect, the ways individuals communicate or make meanings are dependent on the use of various modes that are not limited to language or print alone, but are extended to the use of multiple forms of representations such as visual, audio, spatial and gestural. Given these, today’s literacy practices extend from just reading written text, to reading multimodal texts with images, sounds, and other forms of modalities, and interacts within different social and cultural
The musical definition of “fugue” is “a contrapuntal composition in which a short melody or phrase (the subject) is introduced by one part and successively taken up by others and developed by interweaving the parts”(dictionary.com). This definition fits the piece as well. Musicians often play on words in their piece titles and within their songs, and so I believe that is exactly what Powell was doing here with the change in spelling of “fugit”. Artists favor hidden meanings in their works and this was no different. It appears that Powell wanted all three meanings to be heard: “time flies”, the psychiatric impact, and the musical definition.
Images are used to open the readers mind to interpretation. Advertisements use this to their advantage in delivering their message, and catch the reader’s attention to leave a lasting impression. Advertisements are very specific when promoting an idea or product to their viewers. Advertisements argue their ideas to their viewers that the idea expressed is important. The argument presented in the image is focusing on texting while driving having detrimental consequences by the design it used, the message it emphasizes, and the rhetorical elements used.
This has led them to create “signs” and “signs systems” such as language. The study of these signs and what exactly do people perceive as the meaning behind those signs is called semiotics. Semiotics attempts to solve the question that: what is X? X can be anything from a lyric of a song or a dialogue in a play. It can have various different meanings as perceived by the audience.
Relate music to culture, historical, ethnic, and language groups to connect to world history, geography, and connections between music and the history of a people, focus on connections between music and the expressions of human experience as a form of communication, examine texts for connections to poetry and historical literature, relate texts to common human experience in contemporary life and explore how musical setting heightens the expression of text, encourage understanding of and appreciation for the cultural differences represented by diversity of music to illuminate the strength of diversity
