The Eight Basic Elements of Music

The Eight Basic Elements of Music
By Espie Estrella Updated December 16, 2014. Sound is created when an object vibrates. These vibrations are perceived by our ears and then sent to our brain. When you listen to a piece of music, you'll notice that it has several different characteristics; it may be soft or loud, slow or fast, combine different instruments and have a regular rhythmic pattern. All of these are known as the "elements of music." Beat and Meter - In order to define meter, let's first define beats. continue reading below our video Play Video Harmony - In general, harmony refers to the combination of notes (or chords) played together and the relationship between a series of chords.

MTO 6.2: Tenzer, Theory and Analysis of Melody in Balinese Gamelan Volume 6, Number 2, May 2000 Copyright � 2000 Society for Music Theory KEYWORDS: Balinese gamelan, melodic stratification, cyclic meters, symmetries ABSTRACT: Like many other musics with a primarily cyclic approach to melodic and rhythmic organization, Balinese gamelan music of the court or court-derived traditions relies upon on symmetries of one kind or another for structural coherence. Gamelan genres originating in other Balinese historical or cultural contexts have different, often more asymmetrical, kinds of organizing principles. In this article a set of Balinese concepts of melodic motion are used to develop a theory useful for analyzing the variety of symmetrical and asymmetrical structures evident across the repertoire. References 1. [1.2] A variety of aesthetically compelling musical tensions exist in Balinese melodies and drum patterns. Figure 1. 2. [2.2] The rhythmic densities of these layers are most often related by simple duple ratios. Figure 2. Figure 3. 3. 4. 5. 1. 2.

SKOS Simple Knowledge Organization System Primer Abstract SKOS—Simple Knowledge Organization System—provides a model for expressing the basic structure and content of concept schemes such as thesauri, classification schemes, subject heading lists, taxonomies, folksonomies, and other similar types of controlled vocabulary. As an application of the Resource Description Framework (RDF), SKOS allows concepts to be composed and published on the World Wide Web, linked with data on the Web and integrated into other concept schemes. This document is a user guide for those who would like to represent their concept scheme using SKOS. In basic SKOS, conceptual resources (concepts) are identified with URIs, labeled with strings in one or more natural languages, documented with various types of note, semantically related to each other in informal hierarchies and association networks, and aggregated into concept schemes. In advanced SKOS, conceptual resources can be mapped across concept schemes and grouped into labeled or ordered collections.

Case Study: Use of Semantic Web Technologies on the BBC Web Sites Yves Raimond, BBC Tom Scott, BBC Patrick Sinclair, BBC Libby Miller, BBC Stephen Betts, BBC and Frances McNamara, BBC, United Kingdom January 2010 General Description The BBC is the largest broadcasting corporation in the world. Central to its mission is to enrich people’s lives with programmes that inform, educate and entertain. It is a public service broadcaster, established by a Royal Charter and funded, in part, by the licence fee that is paid by UK households. Linking microsites for cross-domain navigation The BBC publishes large amounts of content online, as text, audio and video. This lack of cross linking has also limited the type of user interaction the BBC is able to offer, for example, it is a complex piece of work to recontextualise content designed for one purpose (e.g. a programme web site) for another purpose or to extract the underlying data and visualize it in a new or different way. Making data available to developers The Solution A web presence for all BBC programmes

This copyright applies to the Music Ontology Specification and accompanying documentation and does not apply to Music Ontology data formats, ontology terms, or technology. Regarding underlying technology, Music Ontology relies heavily on W3C's RDF technology, an open Web standard that can be freely used by anyone. This visual layout and structure of the specification was adapted from the FOAF Vocabulary Specification by Dan Brickley and Libby Miller and the SIOC Ontolofy Specification by Uldis Bojar and John G. Internet changed the music industry. At that point, the music industry of the eighties leaded by blockbusters was completely changed. The Music Ontology is an attempt to provide a vocabulary for linking a wide range music-related information, and to provide a democratic mechanism for doing so. The Music Ontology is divided in three levels of expressiveness - from the simplest one to the more complex one. RDF Document Examples

Table of Contents Introduction This document describes the first draft of a chord ontology based on work from the Centre for Digital Music, Queen Mary, University of London. The ontology is complete enough to be usable and useful now - some tools for manipulating data from this ontology can be found in the motools project on Sourceforge. All feedback is welcome and if you would like to propose changes or additions to the ontology, the best place to do so is on the Music Ontology mailing list.
