Write a brief biography of the composer.

Select a ″classical music″ composer, or a ″popular music″ composer who was influenced by ″classical music,″ listed in the text about whom to write a 5-6 page research paper. You must get my approval for the composer that you pick so that I can be sure of the quality of your choice. It does not matter if more than one person selects the same composer, but you must write your paper independently, not as a team.
Conduct research online or in the library, from 2 or more sources, about your composer.
Write a brief biography of the composer.
List the composer’s musical output (what different kinds of pieces he or she wrote, and how many of each category of piece – for example: 15 symphonies, 2 operas, 3 concertos, 20 sonatas for piano, etc.).
Discuss your impression of the composer’s influence on the culture of Europe and the Americas. Was his or her influence small, medium, or large, in your opinion? Support your opinion with facts you found in your research about the composer. For instance, Stravinsky′s ballet, ″The Rite of Spring,″ changed the course of music so drastically that it caused a riot in Paris after its premiere. Additionally, a section of ″The Rite of Spring″ was part of the Disney animated classic, ″Fantasia.″ Or as another example, the famous jazz band leader and composer, Duke Ellington, wrote long, symphonic-style jazz pieces and an opera.
In your discussion of the composer′s influence on culture, be sure to include the following points: (1) the relationship between the composer, and the time and place in which he or she composed music, i.e., religious, political, artistic, and social movements of the time; (2) the musical style(s), forms, and genres in which the composer composed his or her music.
Discuss your emotional response to the composer′s music and the emotional response that listeners had to the composer′s music during the composer′s lifetime.
List your sources using either APA or Chicago Style Manual format.
Pages should be formatted with 1 inch margins, use double spacing, and use minimal spacing between words and between sentences. Such pages, in 12-point Times New Roman font, would contain approximately 250 words per page. Therefore, your paper should contain 1,250-1,500 words, not including listing the sources you researched for your paper.

Click the “pause” button when you hear the end of that idea, and write down the counter time, and whether it is idea a or idea b.

I​‌‍‍‍‌‍‌‍‍‍‌‌‌‍‌‌‌‌‌‌​n this assignment, you will listen to Handel’s See Here the Conqu’ring Hero Comes and identify the musical ideas in the piece, as follows:
Listen to the attached music
Watch the counter on the player, and click the pause button when you hear the beginning of the first musical idea (A or B).
While the player is paused, write down the counter time at the beginning of that first idea. Make sure you label the musical idea as Idea A or Idea B.
Then, click the “play” button again, and listen for the end of the idea currently in progress (Idea A or B).
Click the “pause” button when you hear the end of that idea, and write down the counter time, and whether it is Idea A or Idea B.
For example: Idea A 0:18-0:24
Idea B 0.25-0:38
6.Continue writing down the order of musical ideas A and B (​‌‍‍‍‌‍‌‍‍‍‌‌‌‍‌‌‌‌‌‌​including their start and stop times) throughout the entire piece, and try to identify any pattern you see.
Here is a YouTube link of the same performance, in case you are having troubles with the audio:

Submit your list of beginning and ending counter times for each musical idea as it occurs, identifying the “A”s and “B”s associated with those times, and the recurring pattern (if you were able to identify one).
Notice the changes in dynamic levels (volume). Can you identify which instruments are added towards the end to support the character suggested in the title of the piece? Explain how Handel uses dynamics and timbre to achieve variety in the examples that you created.
Two well written paragraphs about the piece, with as many details as you hear, will be enough​‌‍‍‍‌‍‌‍‍‍‌‌‌‍‌‌‌‌‌‌​.

Reaction Paper 3 Directions
Write a reaction paper on the musical piece. Imagine that you have taken on the task of making
a 38-minute video about your own life, set to this music. Describe the scenes in the video. (It
can be four separate stories from your own life, with a movement for each, or one story in four
parts, with a movement for each part.)
Start with an introductory paragraph. Give a brief overview statement of the paper’s contents
as spelled out below, identifying the composition and composer by name, and summarily
previewing the key points of the paragraphs to follow.
Like most symphonies, Beethoven’s 5th is in four movements. Since there are four movements
to the symphony, after the intro paragraph write four substantive paragraphs, each explaining
the scene associated with that movement of the symphony, and how the elements of music as
found​‌‍‍‍‌‍‌‍‍‍‌‌‌‍‌‌‌‌‌‌​ in Kamien and used in the movement of the symphony would fit the emotions and
events of the scene.
Tip: shoot for a 50/50 balance of attention and detail between details about the
music—the way it uses the elements (tempo, meter, dynamics, modality [major/minor],
harmonic tension [consonant/dissonant], timbre, texture [which “-phonic” word], and
form)—and how each connects with the personal details it evokes in your hearing. Don’t
start the paragraph with something like “this movement’s upbeat pace reminded me
of…” and then spend the rest of it telling your personal story with no more reference to
the music’s details.
That said, there is no one "right" answer, only answers that show you understand the elements
of music as they are used in each the four movements of the symphony, and answers that show
you don’t.
Be sure to include at least two resources, including the textbook. The sources should be
properly re​‌‍‍‍‌‍‌‍‍‍‌‌‌‍‌‌‌‌‌‌​ferenced in APA format.

musical form (if applicable).

Based on the elements of music you identified, try to explain what general effect of the music

written, average, poor?—by virtue of how the composer chose and employed those elements.
Paragraph 4:
What do you think was the perspective of the composer while writing the piece? NOTE: To
answer this question you will need to obtain some biographical information about the
composer, and some of the “backstory” of the composing of the piece in the assignment.
Consult the textbook, but also consult other available sources, for any biographical information
and/or information on the composition that might help answer this.
Paragraph 5:

listening to it?

should be properly referenced in AP​‌‍‍‍‌‍‌‍‍‍‌‌‌‍‌‌‌‌‌‌​A format.
