HSC 2002 – Music 1

Elective Composition

Band 2/3 Sample 1 – Annotation

Title: All That Out
Topic: Popular Music

Some stylistic understanding is evident in this composition. Word setting, phrasing, structure and harmony are presented in a basic manner. Some word scansion problems exist and score does not reflect the composer’s intentions as details are omitted, such as instrumentation. The harmonic progression is notated as chord symbols only with the absence of a strumming pattern. Some attempt at variety in harmonic material is evident. Texture is similar throughout. The chosen topic is well represented.
