For Grown-Ups




Texture is one of the basic elements of music. People use texture to describe the amount of rhythms played at a specific time. In music, texture also means the overall quality of sound of a piece, most often indicated by the number of voices in the music and by the relationship between these voices (see types of texture below). A piece's texture may be affected by the number and character of parts playing at once, the timbre of the instruments or voices playing these parts and the harmony, tempo, and rhythms used.

Educational Elements:

  • Timbre
  • Tempo
  • Dynamics – through the loud and soft sounds from the synthesizer
  • Variations – the synthesizer re-interprets the Jazzberries song
  • Rhythm – the band tries out different ways of playing their instruments and rhythm comes through
  • Pitch – in the live action sequences the synthesizer player explains the principals of pitch through playing on different parts of the keyboard

Musical Concepts Texture 

The relationship between all aspects of the music. Between the melody and the harmony. It is the combination of elements that create a specific texture. Also how the music is played (fast, slow, bumpy, smooth) affects the texture.

    I must say, as a whole lot as I enjoyed renaidg what you had to say, I couldnt assist but shed interest soon after a although. Its as should you had a wonderful grasp on the subject matter, but you forgot to incorporate your readers. Maybe you must think about this from far a lot more than 1 angle. Or perhaps you shouldnt generalise so considerably. Its greater in case you think about what other people might need to say rather of just going for a gut reaction towards the topic. Think about adjusting your own believed procedure and giving other people who may possibly read this the benefit of the doubt. [url=]cnphgwxtkum[/url] [link=]vbdchhyp[/link]
