Discussion questiona5&6

Episode 5

  1. At the beginning of this episode, Krukowski asserts, “the marginal-the rejected-the repressed-is whatever the powerful have decided is of no use at the moment.” What does he mean by this statement? He goes on to ask, “But might it [the marginal-the rejected-the repressed] not be a key to alternate approaches-to art, to society-to power itself?” (“Marginalized” is an adjective that describes a person, group, or concept that is treated as insignificant or peripheral.)

 

What is he trying to get at with this question? How does music indicate the differences between the powerful and the marginalized?

 

1: In the beginning of the episode when Kruwoski says” the marginal-the rejected-the repressed-is whatever the powerful have decided is of no use at the moment.” He means that music isn’t being appreciated through CDs anymore. Everything is so advanced now that everyone downloads music instead of going to music store and buying it. The CDs and tapes are being less appreciated.

  1. How are the music listening experiences enabled by Forced Exposure different from those that Paul Lamere is working on with platforms like Spotify?

 

2: Music listening experiences from the Forced Exposure are different from listening to Spotify because during the forced exposure listening moments  they had the opportunity to listen to all the music they could and if you wanted to contact the artist there would be a long wait. Fast forward to modern days with Spotify, you can have your music chosen for you. Spotify can direct you to music according to your mood, contacts etc. Spotify has a variety of music and there is no way you can listen to every song on Spotify.

  1. What distinctions does Krukowski draw between being “surprised” by music and “discovering” music? What are the differences between these experiences and according to Krukowski, why are they important?

 

3: When you hear new music you’ve never heard before you are surprised by the things that your hearing. When your surprised its nothing that you expected. On the other hand, when you’re discovering music your expecting what you’re looking for. This is important because you are using these tools to gain more of an understanding to music.

 

Episode 6

  1. According to Krukowski, what is noise? What is signal? Why are these distinctions important?

 

1: Krukowski describes noise as the thing we are listening to in the background. For an example when you’re listening to two things at one time one becomes the signal and one is the noise. The noise being the sound in the background and the signal being the sound that has your attention. Your brain is more focused on the signal while your listening to the noise but not so much.

  1. What central idea about noise does this episode convey? Why is it significant?

 

2: Noise and signal are important to our everyday life. You can hear up to millions of different signals and noises, noises are the sounds you hear in the background. Signal being the sound you’re hearing first and paying the most attention to. Producers and musicians make music with signal being louder sound then the noise.

 

  1. How does this episode relate to other episodes?

 

3:  Episode six was based on noise, which Krukowski described as the unwanted sound in the background.  The author uses podcast to explain to listeners the importance of each episode. Listening to different noises and signals is apart of our everyday life, the author wants us to understand sound noise and signals. Throughout the podcast we listened to him speak about listening and understanding music. Music has noises and signals and that’s how this episode relates to the others.

DISCUSSION QUESTION #3

1: The difference between nakedness and nude is that nude is a form of art and nakedness is when you are without clothing. These differences are significant because people have been using the wrong terms and in art these are significant words.

2:The western works of art depicted and defined different roles for men and women, men being in charge and women be submissive and slaves for men. The example  John Berger uses is Adam and eve, they were used to explain each role men and women play. These depictions influence the way some people think in todays society because some men do believe women are supposed to obey and be slaves for men.

3: Berger describes the significance of the mirror in the paintings depicting women by using the mirror as a symbol to show the women who they are and what people think she looks like . The mirror is used as a way of vanity for the women. In the video Berger explains the depiction of the female gaze in panting’s, women were painted a certain way to society. In these panting’s women were naked and looked at as if they were supposed to be vulnerable to men.

In the video John Berger states” Everything around it confirms and consolidates its meaning”, this saying is effective in this image because there is so much detail added to the image for people to understand its message.

After watching the video “How can art help you analyze ” you could understand why art is so important to the world. Art is all over the world and we barely notice it. Not everyone can understand certain pieces of art and this brings out more skills in a person. Throughout the video Ted-Ed uses relevance, logic and and debth to help readers understand “How can art help you analyze. ” The author uses relevance to help readers understand “How can art help you analyze” because if you can analyze the thing you cant see in art, you can use that ability in your everyday life. For example  a doctor or a police officer have to use there eyes to analyze  a problem or to diagnose somebody. If you can analyze even the little things in art or in general it is a helpful skill .The other uses logic to explain the importance of analyzing art because sometimes in art you’re not gonna see every detail so its up to you to interpret and inference what the art significance. For example in the video there was a painting of a train with no other detail around it. If you really interpret the picture and use logic you can imagine all the other things surrounding the picture. Lastly the author uses debth to explains to listeners the deeper you look into something the more you’ll understand. Art isn’t something that can be analyzed easily but with practice you can use these skills else where too.
