Listening Journal Week 4 #3

by

Today, I went to Starbucks to get a coffee and noticed there were a lot of people either on their laptops, doing some type of paperwork or homework, or sitting there listening to their headphones. It got me thinking about the fact that many people go there to study, do homework, or read. Usually when […]

Today, when I woke up, I went outside my bedroom and sat on the couch. It was the quietest I think I’ve ever heard my apartment. My cats were asleep, the air conditioning was off, I couldn’t hear the refrigerator running, and the weather outside was calm. I tried to listen as closely as I […]

Last night, I went to Cary St. Gym at one of the busiest times. I am usually listening to music when I work out, so I never really hear what the gym sounds like. When I wasn’t wearing my headphones, I could hear many different sounds. I heard very loud boom sounds randomly, which had […]

Yesterday, I went for a walk around my apartment in the middle of the afternoon. It was a bit windy, and all you could hear was the plants and trees blowing in the wind. It was a very relaxing sound. The only other noises I could hear at the time were a few random birds […]

Listening Journal Week 3 Bach “covers” Vivaldi

by

Instrumentation is what determines how I feel when I listen to a piece. Most of the time the emotion I associate with the song is not due to the actual song at all, but how it is played. Bach’s version gives it more of an eerie tone on the organ. I like Vivaldi’s version on […]

Listening Journal Week 2 #3: Machaut and Polyphonic vocal works

by

Machaunt puis q’uen publi sounds dark and eerie based on the pitches. This also sounded like one person was doing all the singing besides a few back-up singers singing the same thing in the background. The emotion I could feel when listening to this was sadness. During the Renaissance era, songs were written with very […]

My two cats are sitting in the window sill looking out of the window at the birds. When a bird gets close, they make this weird clicking noise with their mouths followed by them whipping their tails. They are behind the blinds, so when their tails moves up and down the blinds hard enough, it […]

After I woke up this morning, I went to sit in my living room. I could hear the dripping coming from the ice maker in the refrigerator. It was oddly dripping at a steady beat. I couldn’t help but bob my head to the sound. It was a steady beat, but the pitches kept changing […]

Today since it was so nice out and not as hot as yesterday, I decided to sit out by the pool of my apartment complex. I decided to listen out there since there was only one other person out there that was laying out peacefully. When I listened, I heard the jets of the pool, […]
