Music-Essay

Order Description

Watch a fictionalized (not documentary) movie about rock history about a genre, artist, or time period we?ve covered already in class.

This is the movie I choose: "Beyond the Sea; De-Lovely; Rat Pack (after covering Tin Pan Alley)" –

Please read this carefully : ( Please include the time location in the essay when you analyze something in the movie – that’s very improtant ).
What to write about: Write a clearly organized analysis of the film, noting how it pertains to the music and historical-cultural context we?ve discussed in class. I will be looking for the following components:
1) Basic identifying information (the title; the genre, artist, and/or era of rock history it deals with; and the director) and a brief synopsis of the plot.
2) Critically assess at least one scene from the film that depicts a
live performance of the music we?ve studied. Use class vocabulary to describe the music and analyze if the film has portrayed it accurately (for instance, using correct instruments, rhythms, forms, etc.). Include the time location (i.e. ?From 47-52 minutes into the film??).
3) Critically assess at least one scene that depicts the cultural-historical context of the music. Use material you?ve learned from class to analyze whether or not the film accurately portrays the role of music in that cultural and historical context.
Include the time location of this scene too.

Grading Rubric:
1-5 Identifying Details: Film?s title, subject, director, and brief synopsis.
1-20 Musical Analysis: Description of the portrayal of music in the film, and critical assessment of its accuracy based on class material. Include the time location of the scene.
1-20 Contextual Analysis: Description of the portrayal of the cultural-historical context of the music in the film, and critical assessment of its accuracy based on class material. Include time location.
1-5 Organization and Writing: The descriptions and analyses should be clearly organized. There should be a quick wrap-up concluding thought. Your writing should be clear, lacking in grammatical mistakes, incomplete sentences, run-ons, or spelling errors. Proofread. Follow formatting guidelines.
