True that. My brain was pretty much drained of all vocabulary learned after kindergarten. Absolute mush. I managed to throw some relative terms in which is essentially what matters but i could hardly manage to put a sentence together. Oh well at least i can be confident in my performance mark.~untitled~ said:WHY THE HELL WOULD THEY EVER PUT ANOTHER EXAM ON THE SAME DAY AS ENGLISH...
I agree with everything you said. Except that the last piece was awesome!bethdocker85 said:The first song was amazing! I love Architecture in Helsinki... the guitar was very Sufjan Stevens reminiscent.. I dug it! But I found it so hard to concentrate on answering the question when I was enjoying the song! Lol.
I thought overall the questions they asked were pretty good, nice and general, like "discuss everything" kinda things (aka. refer to all musical concepts)
The yashigoma or whatever it was question was fcked up! Haha, we were in this massive massive exam room, 2 examiners, only me and 1 other girl, and I burst out laughing so loudly.. it was incredibly embarassing! haha.. but once those voices came in I just lost it.. and the 80s rock section? Omg, worst piece of music I've ever heard!
Orchestral pieces + focus on pitch = i killed myself. so bad. lol.
anything that's compare and contrast is heaps easy. so I was happy with that one. Espescailly since the songs were so dif! Heaps to talk about! Horrible dissonance in the brass section in the second excerpt though.. I was like *shudder*
But overall, I was pretty happy.
I'm gonna fail music anyway, it's my worst subject by far, so I reckon mid 80s and I'll be happy! I can never get higher than that anyway.
same!! i was like, OMG!Fish Sauce said:oh and the first one shocked me when it started. It was fairly loud and it went 4 3 2 1 with the numbers switching between right and left speakers, I was in the middle and the first time it played I jumped a bit. Looked like an idiot, haha.
don't worry, I had to restrain myself with the last one's YJAMDN(!IUADJ whatever as wellbethdocker85 said:same!! i was like, OMG!
I think the examiners thought I was a bit wacky. jumping in shock and spontaneously bursting into laughter... crazed, ay?
LOL to start with i was insulted by this.. until i remember it was true..OptimusPrime said:ther reason people arn't in this forum is because music 1 is full of stoners who probally forgot that today was the exam....good luck...i got my concepts down
