It was ridiculous, so out of tune, it gave me a damn headache.
And tension??? since when does that get asked?
shit aye ive already forgotten what question one was about. Can someone just post the questions. My tutor will probably be pissed if i forget what the questions wereTobes said:I found q1 the hardest.. had a bit of a mental blank
There wasn't a polyphonic texture. Polyphonic means a minimun of two independent melodies, generally with some sort of accomp. The instruments didn't play 'melodies' as such. Perhaps you could say it was 'polyrhythmic'. But it generally was a dissonant piece, or a piece of atonality.ajn18.10.87 said:The exam was ok...
Q3 was funi...my whole calss laughed to hahah to bad im the only one in my music class o well lol!!! but it was a good question so much to write on it...as it was a C20th peice...it was so random you could talk about all the things it didnt do or have like no sence of time sig and key signature and the polyphonic texture with the disonance of the contrasting pitches creates tension and also the tone colours. etc
how did everyone else find the other questions??
yeh i also found q1 stupid. i got stuck, i hate figurin out structure. lucky its only a 6 marker and not an 8 like the other ones. and then q 2 came along about repetition, and i thought, great, i've stuffed up my chances at music. then along came q3. Nice broad tension question, talk bout ne concepts u want, and then q4 was good too. Maybe it took me a while to warm up. Oh well, guess im not toppin the state then. State place? Pls? Maybe? nah, doubt it.Tobes said:Question 3 was one of the easiet to write about I thought... For those who found it tough, you should have written about the tension there woulda been if you met the composer haha.. Annnnyway.. I found q1 the hardest.. had a bit of a mental blank which was a first in music for me.. Did anyone else set it out as they did in a similar quesiton they had in the 2003 hsc standard packages? just interested to know if i was the only one to borrow that idea.. with the sections and instruments in a table and just tick off which instruments were in each section.. they got band 5/6 so it must have been an alright technique
It was an old-school B side song, never made any albums. God knows how the Board got their hands on it. I thought it was a poor song. lol, i liked the vertical harmony though.metallicrap said:That Zeppelin Song was one of the Jimmy Page/ Robert Plant Duo's made in the 80's or 90's, its not a zeppelin song, lol although i must admit, i was thinking the same thing. Dont they mean black dog?
And that voice, jesus it didnt sound nothing like Robert Plant.
