  • BAROQUE/CLASSICAL MUSIC DISCUSSION:
    Following the forum guidelines above,

    • ¶1: Briefly summarize the Baroque and Classical eras, interpreting what was happening in society and music.
    • ¶2: Analyzing the techniques & innovations from each era, consider more recent music (written in the last century) and how the influence of the previous era’s innovation/music elements can be found in modern music (techniques still used today). Examples should include one song connecting to the Baroque era innovations/elements, and one connecting to Classical innovations/elements, based on what was emphasized in class. 
    • Music sample: Embed your music sample so your audience can listen to it while we read your analysis.
      • Do NOT paste a link; Do NOT attach a file! EMBED your files!
      • Include a cue/time stamp so the listener knows exactly where to hear what you are talking about in the music. 
      • To avoid ads or videos that suddenly vanish, download video clip (https://www.4kdownload.com/ FREE!) to your computer, then embed in the discussion post.
    • In the subject line, include the connecting song title or artist/composer name & your name in parenthesis:
    • Beyonce & Lady Gaga (Gernhart)
    • EraTheme/InnovationPossible Connections, ExamplesBaroqueParadox (Control vs. Extravagance), Artificiality, Ornamentation, VirtuosityDivas who sing with a lot of ornamentation (Aretha Franklin), or Over-the-top artists (Lady Gaga) – performers who rely on non-musical factors (i.e. costumes, dancing, stage props) as much as the music to create their extravagant performance (i.e. strenuous dance choreography with singing are a paradox); Contra-tenorsClassicalNatural simplicity & pleasing variety, I-IV-V songs (songs with few chords), Pop stars playing/singing classical music (excerpt ok), pop songs that borrow from classical music, classical music used in a movie soundtrack or commercial; OR simple songs with few chordsExamples:
    • Baroque: Lady Gaga’s performance at the Super Bowl in Houston is extravagant and over-the-top. She is performing these elaborate dance moves and acrobatics while also singing her heart out (very difficult to do). The elaborate stage show and props are as prominent as the music, and she is also a virtuoso (highly skilled in music). 
    • Classical: Schubert’s “Ave Maria” is used as a hook when Beyonce sings her version of “Ave Maria”
