Write a paragraph describing one of your favorite works of music in the twentieth century, concentrating primarily on the terms pitch, timbre, loudness, and time. Understand what’s important (to your way of hearing the piece) in each of those four dimensions. Choose one dimension as a topic on which to concentrate special energy. If possible, include a url to a web-hosted video (for example on Google Video or YouTube) of the work under discussion, or let us know where/how we might hear the piece.
Optional: post your answer here by clicking on the “Comment” link. I look forward to reading your perspectives on this! (If you prefer to keep your answer private, you may submit it to me directly via email or in class.)
