Assignment #3: Quiz One Preview
Assignment #3: Quiz One Preview gives you a sampling of real questions that might appear on the quiz. This is a regular, graded homework that is due before our quiz date (= Class 7, Feb 22).
Assignment #4: Meter (Round One)
Assignment #4: Meter asks you to listen to some tracks and decide whether they are duple or triple.
Exercise 4 is due on Class 8 (Tues, Feb 27).
In this session we will revisit some of the topics we've been working on lately.
I. We'll strategize on how one could tell the difference between the various tracks on our listening list, and how one might approach the "essay" question at the end of the quiz.
II. We'll go back to meter and looked at some the psychological cues that create the duple and triple metrical patterns, and we'll practice conducting.
III. Finally, we'll listen to one more Renaissance piece, Thomas Tallis's spectacular Spem in Alium.
Thomas Tallis's Spem in Alium
I'll also mention the related sound installation by Janet Cardiff.
AND, we've actually got a relevant item on our concert calendar, plugging an upcoming concert of Tallis's music.
