My most recent musicology lecture focused on the relationship between musical form and the elements of music. I am looking for examples of the following – feel free to suggest –
Examples of pieces with unusual bar numbers between sections (verse – chorus etc)
Examples of how changes in rhythm delineate form
Examples of verse and chorus with same chords
Examples of artist specific sounds – ie Hendrix, Metheny etc.
Examples of texture/instrumentation delineating form
Examples of how metre delineates form – ie 3 / 4 to 4 / 4.
Examples of how sounds allude toward change of style
Examples of how sounds indicate a place or a time.
Examples of textures that outline the lyrics and or title of a song
With all of these questions you need to also ask ‘how’?
