The images are found in the “Bebop” Module 7 online introductory materials. Consider both the musicians and members of the audience and answer the following questions: What can you conclude regarding changes from the Swing Era to the Bebop period? Which musicians seem to be more intently involved in their performance? Which audience seems to be getting the most enjoyment from the music. Why do you suppose the size of the musical ensemble changed from the Swing era to the bebop period? Base your responses on your readings, and what you observe in these photographs.Typed all responses in the Word docx, save the file, and then upload the fileUpload your file by clicking “Browse My Computer” for Attach File.
You will be surprised at the variety of concerts: orchestral music, choral music, and chamber music from several historical periods. The format for writing a concert report is quite specific. Reports should not be longer than the equivalent of two pages if printed out.
1 List the name of the group, the conductor, and the title and composer for each piece performed.
2 List each INSTRUMENT used in the concert.
3 List each piece performed by HISTORICAL PERIOD. You will find this information somewhere in the program, usually by checking each composer’s dates. (Middle Ages: 450-1450, Renaissance: 1450-1600, Baroque: 1600-1750, Classical: 1750-1820, Romantic: 1820-1900, 20thCentury: 1900-1999, 21stCentury: 2000-today.)
4 Pick one composition on the program. IN YOUR OWN WORDS, DISCUSS
THE MUSIC YOU ARE HEARING. THINK ABOUT THE MUSICAL
TERMS AND CONCEPTS YOU HAVE LEARNED IN CLASS THIS
SEMESTER AND APPLY AS MANY OF THEM AS ARE APPROPRIATE.
(Think in terms of specifics. What type of composition is it? Is it program music or absolute music, or an example of musical nationalism? What about tempo, dynamic variety, instruments used, melodic complexity, consonance or dissonance level, etc.?)
THINGS TO REMEMBER WHEN WRITING ANY REPORT
There are certain things that always apply: clarity of thought, proper grammar, spelling, and punctuation.
5 Don’t forget to use spell-check before you turn it in.
6 Your reports must reflect YOUR thoughts. You may quote published information as long as you cite your sources. Plagiarism is a serious offense in academic circles. Don’t do it.
7 Avoid the temptation to copy someone else’s report. If two reports appear to be suspiciously similar, I will penalize BOTH the person lending the original report and the person copying from it.
I HAVE CHOSEN THE CONCERT. Below is the link. So please base the paper off of the concert i have provided
The length of your written response should be at least 3 full pages.
1. The guide breaks up the film and the themes into four segments. Please refer to your reflections from the viewing and the listening guide to discuss the most meaningful music cues for you from each segment (there are four segments) of the listening guide document. Specifically address moments in the film when music and narrative combined to create particularly poignant moments. Give timings. (So… four cues)2. In the article/interviews with Ennio Morricone, particularly the Sciannameo interview, how does Ennio Morricone describe the way that narrative and music work together; how they develop? List at least three examples from the film that exemplify what Morricone spoke of.
How does SOX Section 806 impact whistleblowing?Part 2. Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Acta. List Dodd-Frank’s main provisions (Hint: they go beyond whistleblowing)b. State Dodd-Frank’s limits on whistle-blowing awards to the following:> An internal accountant or auditor> An auditor of a public company> An employee of an audit firm who observes issues with its firm’s auditing of a public companyc. Give an example of how a corporation might comply with Dodd-Frank in form…but not in substance.

A little creative writing in this discussion. Start with some listening. Listen to the four covers of the Blues song Mean Old World, linked below. For the first three, listen carefully for the way each four-bar group is split into two bars of vocal and two bars instrumental. By way of contrast, note the continuity of the melodic line in Sam Cooke’s version.
Mean Old World – Little Walters (Links to an external site.)
Mean Old World – Eric Clapton and Duane Allman (Links to an external site.)
Mean Old World – an all-star cast featuring Chuck Berry on Vocals (Links to an external site.)
A transformation into a 16 bar gospel tinged pop song – Sam Cooke’s version (Links to an external site.).
For this week’s discussion
1) What strikes you as the most unusual or surprising changes that you experience in Sam Cooke’s transformation of the song? Is it more or less expressive than the other three?
2) In comparing the first three versions what element(s) did you find most memorable? Most authentic (heart-felt)?
3) add a fourth stanza (text below). Your stanza should follow the AAB format below, and be thematically linked in some way to what precedes your writing. You don’t have to be overly narrative but remember to keep it in first person.
For your response to your classmate, in addition to responding to their responses to questions 1 and 2, you will add another stanza , i.e. you will add a stanza to your classmate’s new stanza. Try your best to respond to somebody who hasn’t already been responded to, but adding a fifth stanza would be OK if someone else has already responded.

How did Williams’ approach differ from
modernist film composers in the 70’s? List examples of films and
important names in your response.
the 60’s to 80’s there were a considerable number of counter practices
against the classical film score. During this same period John Williams’
was involved in a number of different aspects of performing and
composing. How did the experiences of Williams through this period place
him in a unique position to embrace the post-modern approach in film
view the film before answering the next question. Kalinak outlines 3
cues from The Empire Strikes Back: The Main Title, Darth Vader’s
leitmotif and the ice battle on the Planet Hoth.In what ways do these
cues exhibit 1.narrative connections by helping give structure to the
film (recall the statement that Williams; music guides the audience to
what they want to see), 2. late-romanticism and 3. connections between
leitmotif and orchestration.
2 specific instances of how leitmotif, cinema vérite vs late
romanticism, the classical film score, and your understanding of
Williams’ unique compositional approach influenced your viewing and
understanding of the film as a film viewer. That is…how did these
concepts deepen your appreciation for the film?
