Chicanx/latinx music | English homework help

Instructions: The objective of this assignment is to give you an opportunity to do a focused musical analysis on one Artist/Band from one of the musical genres that we studied in this course.  You will be required to view a performance (with real musicians/singers) via Youtube (May not be a “music video”).  Ideally, you should select a genre that is outside of your normal playlist (try not to pick Selena!)  The goal is to have you venture outside of your “comfort zone” so to speak and experience a musical performance that you might not otherwise listen to/view.

Requirements:  Attend (View) 1 live music performance (at least 1-2 full songs of a recorded live musical performance and submit a 2-3 page critical reflection along with a LINK to the performance.  Your written reflection will be based on your analysis of the musical performance.  Your Essay will need to address the following:

  1. Timbre, Pitch, Rhythm, Dynamics, (refer to Module 2) (6 points)
  2. Types of Instruments (Sachs-Hornbostel system-Module 2) (6 points)
  3. Cultural Context including Etic vs. Emic (See Module 1) (6points)
  4. Brief history of Artist/Band-When was group formed?  Who were the influences?  How did they contribute to the musical genre?  (6 points)
  5. Analysis- How do you assess this artist/group in terms of their relationship to the music industry?  Mass Culture? Traditional, Folk, popular?  Are they outside of mainstream?  Is their music a form of resistance to dominant society or has it conformed to outside influence? How does the group or artist identify themselves? (6 points)
