The Influence Of Film Music On Emotion, Alyssa d'Artenay 2019 California State University, Monterey Bay

The Influence Of Film Music On Emotion, Alyssa D'Artenay

Capstone Projects and Master's Theses

This paper examines the use of music as a narrative device to influence an audience’s emotions and response in the context of film and visual media as well as its use as a tool to impart psychological transportation and assist the visual narrative. By identifying the contributions of music as a whole, I evaluate and describe its functions, roles and relationship with the audience through the medium of film. Using information collected from published reports, articles and books, I provide a thorough analysis of the varying methods and approaches used and the roles music plays in affecting the emotional ...

Stressful Music: A Look Into The Challenges Of Life As A Career Musician, Andrew Derek Heinzman 2019 California State University, Monterey Bay

Stressful Music: A Look Into The Challenges Of Life As A Career Musician, Andrew Derek Heinzman

Capstone Projects and Master's Theses

This paper will discuss various aspects of life as a career musician and the challenges faced while working in this field. It will refer to different levels of fame and how certain challenges are present within those levels. Oftentimes the general public is not aware of the degree to which musicians face stress from their line of work. Conflict with bandmates, record labels, and sometimes the public often compound other issues musicians are already dealing with. The pressures of touring and low income can be emotionally draining for many. On top of all that, there is a culture of partying ...


1999 Aaa Jrpg Quality And How A 2019 Indie-Game Developer Can Meet It, Kailynn Haskell-Harbert 2019 California State University, Monterey Bay

1999 Aaa Jrpg Quality And How A 2019 Indie-Game Developer Can Meet It, Kailynn Haskell-Harbert

Capstone Projects and Master's Theses

This paper is a delve into 1999 JRPG AAA video games and how small developers can make something of similar quality with contemporary technology. This is explored by using Final Fantasy VIII and Lunar: Silver Star Story Complete as a 1999 AAA standard, then comparing that standard to modern indie-games as well as my own experience in indie-game development. The ultimate goal of the paper is to prove that small indie-game studios can create 1999 AAA quality JRPGs with relatively minimal investment.


Strange Vibrations: The Evolution Of The Theremin, Kasey Mathew 2019 California State University, Monterey Bay

Strange Vibrations: The Evolution Of The Theremin, Kasey Mathew

Capstone Projects and Master's Theses

This project will examine the unusual and versatile instrument known as the theremin. It will look at the history and development of the instrument as well as the story of its Russian inventor, Leon Theremin, and notable performer Clara Rockmore. The physics behind the instrument will be briefly examined. Several prominent uses of the theremin in popular culture/media will be studied including its use in science fiction movies of the 1950s. Also examined will be the electro-theremin, a simplified version of the instrument which is used as a distinguishing feature of the 1966 music of the Beach Boys in ...


The Musical World Of Joseph Rumshinsky’S Mamele, D. A. Geller 2019 The Graduate Center, City University of New York

The Musical World Of Joseph Rumshinsky’S Mamele, D. A. Geller

All Dissertations, Theses, and Capstone Projects

“The Musical World of Joseph Rumshinsky’s Mamele” consists of a set of three cases studies that demonstrate the enormous need and potential for further Yiddish theater music scholarship. There exists little Yiddish theater scholarship that addresses music in any meaningful way: scholars like David Lifson, Nahma Sandrow, and Joel Berkowitz tend to view Yiddish theater’s rich musical traditions as a footnote in the larger history of Yiddish theater’s dramatic development. Yet Yiddish theater music developed independently from Yiddish drama, and therefore needs to be studied from a primarily musical perspective. I connect scholarship across the fields of ...


Video Game Music And Legitimacy, Jaycie Sundiam 2019 California State University, Monterey Bay

Video Game Music And Legitimacy, Jaycie Sundiam

Capstone Projects and Master's Theses

From the single-tone Pong (1972) to the meticulous composition and instrumentation in Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild’s (2017) soundtrack, video game music has garnered great popularity amongst video game consumers, developing into its own genre of music with subsequent branching subgenres. Yet, is video game music a legitimate musical genre and market or a fad amongst game consumers? What can video game music offer to the music industry? Can the genre change the music industry as it stands today? Following a brief synopsis of the history of Video Game Music (VGM), I discuss arguments against and support ...


Music Deserts: How Social Inequality Affects Accessibility To Music Resources Important To Actively Participating In Music, Everardo Francisco Reyes 2019 University of Northern Colorado

Music Deserts: How Social Inequality Affects Accessibility To Music Resources Important To Actively Participating In Music, Everardo Francisco Reyes

Ursidae: The Undergraduate Research Journal at the University of Northern Colorado

Recent findings in the cognitive neuroscience of music suggest that active participation in music has benefits such as increasing reading comprehension, soothing babies, and helping increase synapses which are beneficial in differentiating music and speech from noise. However, these benefits are not accessible to all communities. Department of Education (2012) research reveals that elementary and secondary schools with a higher percentage of poverty have fewer music teachers, music courses, dedicated rooms for music, and proper music equipment. In this research I examine how social inequality in the US correlated with a lack of music instrument stores (MIS). These areas can ...

Contexts For Musical Modernism In Post-1945 Mexico: Federico Ibarra - A Case Study, Francisco Eduardo Barradas Galván 2019 The University of Western Ontario

Contexts For Musical Modernism In Post-1945 Mexico: Federico Ibarra - A Case Study, Francisco Eduardo Barradas Galván

Electronic Thesis and Dissertation Repository

This monograph examines the musical modernist era in Mexico between 1945 and the 1970s. It aims to provide a new understanding of the eclecticism achieved by Mexican composers during this era, using three different focal points. First, I examine the cultural and musical context of this period of Mexican music history. I scrutinize the major events, personalities, and projects that precipitated Mexican composers’ move away from government-promoted musical nationalism during this period toward an embrace of international trends. I then provide a case study through which to better understand this era, examining the early life, education, and formative influences of ...
