  1. Area of Study 2: Minimalism Objectives: 1. To analyse the piece according to Melody, Harmony, Instrumentation, Rhythm, Structure

  2. Features of minimalism • Drones- long, continuous note or a constantly repeated note (can be any pitch, but is often a low note) • Ostinati/loops- repeated musical ideas. The shortest ideas are called cells. • Phasing- two almost identical parts which go out of sync with each other and gradually, after a number of repetitions, come back into sync again. • Metamorphosis- gradually changing from one musical idea to another, often by changing one note at a time. • Layering- adding new musical parts, commonly one at a time. The parts will often interact with each other forming a complex texture. • Note addition- starting off with a very simple, sparse ostinato containing many rests, and gradually adding notes over a number of repetitions. • Note subtraction. • Rhythmic displacement • Augementation • Diminution • Non-functional harmony
