Rock Music History.Write An Essay That Is 300-500 Words In Length. Select An Artist Of Your Choice And Analyze One Or More Of Their Works Using The Meta-Themes We Have Discussed In Class.

Write an essay that is 300-500 words in length.  Select an artist of your choice and analyze one or more of their works using the meta-themes we have discussed in class.  These themes are:

  • Musical composition
  • People involved
  • Mainstreamness
  • Technology
  • Societal context

Pick three of these themes that are pertinent and write one paragraph on each.  You must provide links to specific musical examples or resources that support your findings.  I would recommend three references per paragraph. Consider comparing your artist against another to increase your depth of analysis.  Comparative artists can be from the same genre or time or another.

You will be graded on your ability to demonstrate your knowledge and your depth of thinking.  Show me what you’ve learned in this class!  The more substantive your analysis, the higher the grade you will receive- but, stay under 500 words.
