Playlist Mixtape

Create a playlist of 6 to 9 musical works.

Organize your selections under a theme such as “Music for Motivation” or “Cross-Country Playlist.” Be as creative as you like.

Include the following:

  • 2 or 3 works of popular music, such as rock, pop, country, dance, or hip-hop
  • 2 or 3 works of medieval or classical music; selections may include cantatas, oratorio, fugues, and so forth
  • 2 or 3 works from other musical forms such as opera, jazz, or folk music

Write a 350- to 700-word summary of your playlist which discusses how the formal and technical qualities of music affect you. In other words, how does music create a certain type of mood, and is it successful in prompting a response from you, emotional or otherwise? Also, explain how the artists and music on your playlist use different techniques to communicate ideas. Use at least 5 to 7 vocabulary terms from the text in your discussion which may include but are not limited to the following:

  • Form
  • Composition
  • Call and response
  • Fusion
  • Looping
  • Sound
  • Pitch

  • Dynamics
  • Timbre
  • Rhythm
  • Beat
  • Meter
  • Tempo
  • Melody
  • Harmony
  • Motif
  • Harmony
  • Consonance

Submit your playlist, its organizing theme, and your summary in one document.
