HSC 2002 – Music 1

Elective Composition

Band 4/5 Sample 2 – Annotation

Title: One For You
Topic: Popular Music

This composition is an appropriate representation of the topic. The score is well set out with some performance directions and dynamic markings. There is some success in the instrumental writing for the chosen performing media. The use of parallel chords and some harmonic progressions is not always successful and drum notation not always accurate. Textural contrast is evident. Structure is coherent with a reasonable sense of melodic development although transition between sections can be awkward.
