  • After Beethoven, Composers Turned Their Attention To The Expression Of Intense Feelings In Their Music This Expression Of Emo - 530 words
    After Beethoven, composers turned their attention to the expression of intense feelings in their music. This expression of emotion was the focus of all the arts of the "Romantic" movement. For inspiration, many Romantic composers turned to the visual arts, to poetry, drama and literature, and to nature itself. Using the classical forms of Sonata and Symphony as a starting point, composers began focusing more on new melodic styles, richer harmonies, and ever more dissonance, in the pursuit of moving their audiences, rather than concerning themselves with the structural discipline of Classical forms. Later composers of the nineteenth century would further build on the forms and ideas developed ...

  • Hacking For Money - 1,955 words
    Hacking For Money Many of the products we buy today are no more than large collections of zeroes and ones. High-priced software, high-quality music, and valuable reference material such as computerized databases or CD-Rom encyclopedias are commercial products like any other, but the media of their transmission makes them different in at least one aspect: it is possible to copy them freely, or at least extremely cheaply. A compact disc of Elvis Costello and the Attractions is different from, say, a ham and swiss sandwich in many ways, but beyond the obvious is one reason that makes the nature of the two items and their production and purchase very different indeed: I can only eat the ham and ...

    ... Starfighter in 1984, the answer was still a decided no. Both of these films were touted as a technological tour-de-force, which, in fact, they were. The films' graphics were extremely well executed, the best seen up to that point, but they could not save the film from a weak script. Unfortunately, the technology was greatly oversold during the film's promotion and so in the end it was technology that was blamed for the film's failure. With the 1980s came the age of personal computers and dedicated workstations. Workstations are minicomputers that were cheap enough to buy for one person. Smaller was better, aster, an much, much cheaper. Advances in silicon chip technologies brought massi ...

  • Modernism Vs Postmodernism - 1,049 words
    Modernism Vs. Postmodernism This question highlights one of the themes central to the account of modem art offered in this course: the tension between the theoretical perspectives of, on the one hand, Modernist criticism and, on the other, an approach focused on the relationship of the art of any given period to its social, political and historical context. The two quotations given above may be interpreted as representing these polarities. It would be an oversimplification to suggest that to accept a Modernist account of modem art must imply rejection of a socio-historical view, or vice-versa (the discussion between TJ Clark and Michael Fried about Pollock (TV21) suggests that there is room ...

    Polish Art On the 26th of January I decided to visit for the first time the San Diego Museum of Arts. When I came upon the museum which from a view was an astonishing piece of architectural exquisiteness. This extravagant building was amazingly distinguishable from all the other ill-rooted, stucco wall structures surroundings. I arrived at the admission desk and upon purchasing my 6$ ticket the young lady told me that there is an exhibition on Art in Poland. I was still thinking that the museum would display some works from Italy, France, Spain, and other well-known European art. Puzzled I asked her about what was troubling me and she responded by saying "Sir, we only have items related to t ...

    ... or of judgment concerning Osmond's character- that though she had married in freedom, she had not married freedom- all her strength and sense of dignity come to her, as the cherished ideal of freedom as opposed to her husband's strict conformity to standard traditions. "Osmond was fond of the old, the consecrated, the transmitted; so was she, but she pretended to do what she chose with it" (James 558). The belief that she is free, has always been, and still is, in spite of the rigid system that Osmond wants to force on her. She made a mistake, she knows, in marrying Osmond; but she believes she had been free to make it. A certain point comes in the novel, where everything changes for Isa ...
