  • Piece Art Bad Artist
    975 words
    Image as Text Response Critical Response Art by its very nature has the tendency to be labeled either "good" or "bad." However there is no bad art, only art that has failed to connect with a viewer. To broadly label art as either good or bad is hypocritical, how could a Picasso be compared to a Rembrandt? The truth is it can't, and that's the deceptiveness of art in that it seems on the surface to be so easily criticized when in reality it's a complicated process to undertake. The piece I chose ...
  • Second Movement Piece Played Piano
    1,083 words
    For this concert report I chose to go to a performance of student composers held at the Kimball Recital Hall. I chose this one because I wanted to see some of the talent that my peers have in the music realm, and also it was one of the only concerts I have been able to attend because I usually work at night. It was impressive to hear pieces composed by students. I cannot imagine creating something as complex as a musical composition, much less actually performing it, so this aspect of the concer...

    Jazz Open Listening Report 'Don't worry, be happy' Don't worry, be happy was by Played by Bobby Mcferrin in the seventies. The in this piece the texture changes a lot as the work progresses. Every time the music would take a slower beat the texture would become thicker and the dynamic or the volume becomes lower. When the dynamic slows, one instrument would only be playing, and all at once when the tempo picks up more, and than three or more instrument would be playing. It seemed that when ther...

    On the evening of October 17, 2000 I, along with hundreds of people, gathered in the Avery Fisher Hall at Lincoln Center to watch the infamous New York Philharmonic. The concert was scheduled to start at 7: 30 pm. People gathered to their assigned seats around 7 pm. As we sat and waited for the concert to begin, I absorbed the surroundings about me. I could smell the fresh smell of the wood, along with the smell of people's various colognes that filled the air that would make the sounds echo alo...
  • Burial At The Ornans
    509 words
    Name of piece: Burial at Ornans Name of artist: Gustave Courbet Date produced: 1849. I first look at Burial at Ornans and take a dislike to it. I see a painting of a small group of people with grim expressions on their faces. The piece is oil on canvas. It s simply painted, perhaps a palette knife has been used, and the colours are harsh and real, with definite edges and colour changes. Space has been used well, with the majority of the detail across the middle length of the piece, leaving the t...

Mutt" or Richard Mutt, said maybe to have been a cartoon strip of the time. Fountain was rejected from the "open exhibition" without anyone k...

As I walked into the building I could tell that all the attendees were mostly people who had attended these concerts often because, of their conversations about past concerts. I didn't see many faces from my music class but, I did see students from other classes such as ...

    Musical Performance 5 Chris Irvine O Fortuna from Carmine Burana (Orff) - Seiji Ozawa/ Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra The dialects of the sound object: When listening to this piece the immediate and obvious associations I have are completely directed by external associations. This is unfortunate because I will not experience the piece for the first time, therefore the encounter will not have its initial impact as a separate entity. The concept that I have built through countless listening experie...

As I drove to the museums, I was challenged with normal Houston traffic clutters, but nothing out of the ordinary. The weather was musty, full of humidity in the air with light sprinkling rain, and it seemed that it was about to start pouring outside but never did during my visit t...
  • Good Literature Literary Piece

    Good literature. What is good literature? As my high school English teacher Dr. Ravens croft would say, "Good literature is anything that I approve of, or that we read in this class." Yet I do not believe, as great of teacher that Dr. R is, that he is the final say in what good literature is, and neither am I. What I do believe is that there must be certain elements that each literary piece must contain in order to be considered "good literature." And the more elements that the work contains, th...
