Aural Topography: Staccato and Legato

Photo on 2013-09-30 at 06.41I believe I did a decent job grasping the concept of this assignment.  I feel like all of the different boxes connect the images inside of each other, as it was my goal to make the sounds seem like they’re fluctuating.  This assignment helped me to clearly understand stocato and logato, and what they might sound like.

Aural Topographies: Research

For the first part of this project, I chose the song By Myself by Linkin Park.  I would classify the song as having variety, instead of it being monotonous.  The song starts out with drums and bass guitars, which are loud, heavy and add intensity to the song.  When the verses come on, the drums and bass go away and a light instrumental plays.  When the chorus occurs, the drums and bass return, which result in pattern.

The drums and bass sound like they would create thin, wild, and static lines that cover a majority of the page.  They will frequently  rise and fall.  The slower verses will have lines that vary slightly.  They are mostly straight and occasionally rise and fall.  They also sound like very soft, thick lines.
