Summary Essays for World Music

Summary Essays for World Music Online (MUSC 175)





Part I Directions:


Choose two jazz musical selections that also reflect the influence of the world music genres we have covered this semester.  The two jazz selections should reflect the influences of different world music genres.  Examples would be a performance of Latin jazz, selections from the CD Imaginary Day by Pat Metheny (gamelan/jazz fusion) or almost any musical selection by the group Hiroshima (traditional music of Japan/jazz fusion).    After you have made your selections, briefly discuss stylistic elements of jazz and world music that can be heard in each example.


Write the responses in paragraph format, with complete sentences.  The analysis of each example should be a minimum of 150 words in length and consist of a minimum of four sentences.


Use the Internet, USCA Library, or your own recordings as sources for musical selections. You may choose any musical selections except for the following:   1) musical selections from the textbook, or 2) musical selections discussed in an initial post, or 3) a musical selection discussed in a previous written assignment.


Also include a reference page with the assignment.   For each question, include one outside source (other than the textbook or class notes) and an entry for the musical example (performer, title, and link).




Part II Directions:   Respond to this question on a separate page.


This course has explored a wide range of musical cultures.  Select examples of music from two different musical cultures and compare their use of one of the following musical elements:  Melody, Harmony, Texture, Rhythm, Meter, Tempo, Dynamics, Timbre, or Form.  Define your selected musical element, then discuss how it is used within your two music examples.  Write one paragraph for each of your responses; each paragraph should consist of a minimum of four sentences.   Include a list of references at the end of these responses.
