ExplorationDocumentTania FarhatHUM200Cultural ArtifactsIn almost every case, the historical facts of diverse communities comprise of theexperiences of various groups. To represent the history, various depictions and voices inthe form of Art and Music is essential. Compilation of heritage and history of a particularplace may be painful, political and contentious. Incorporation of art and music in thecultural activities may help the planners to share their experiences, stories, giveopportunities to the community residents for participating actively in process of planningand visioning, foster the celebration and tolerance of identity, improve the aggregateunderstanding of heritage and history of place of community, establish the relationshipbetween diverse group of individuals and participate in the learning process."Composition" is the act or practice of creating a song, an instrumental music piece, awork with both singing and instruments, or another type of music (Tan, 2000). In manycultures, including Western classical music, the act of composing also includes thecreation of music notation, such as a sheet music "score", which is then performed by thecomposer or by other singers or musicians. In popular music and traditional music, theact of composing, which is typically called songwriting, may involve the creation of abasic outline of the song, called the lead sheet, which sets out the melody, lyrics andchord progression. In classical music, the composer typically orchestrates her owncompositions, but in musical theatre and in pop music, songwriters may hire an arrangerto do the orchestration. In some cases, a songwriter may not use notation at all, and
instead compose the song in her mind and then play or record it from memory. In jazzand popular music, notable recordings by influential performers are given the weight thatwritten scores play in classical music.Common ThemeThe concept and notion of the intertextual exchange of the musicians who read about theidioms and influences from various other musicians and musical texts is considered as akey theme. The popular makers of music listen to their own music (Taylor, 2014). Theyshould cast themselves like an audience and viewers for their personal work as it takesthe shape.Personal ExperienceTalking about my personal experience, all the musical sounds are preserved over therecording of any kind. In the 20thcentury, the emergence of CDs and storing the music inPortable devices have helped in sustaining and preserving its importance even today.ProfessionDr. Wintz is a specialist in the Harlem Renaissance and in African American politicalthought.
