A. Bar (Street)

  • Turn attention away from the encounter of the donor and hero
  • Consider more closely the site of the encounter
  • Often occurs in a bar or “watering hole”
  • Forward progress of narrative is arrested
  • More focus on atmosphere and mood than on the plot line
  • Central Perk: One of the most famous “Bars” of all time??

B. Embodied Expression

  • To express certain things like “exile” in the tango
  • Connecting (not separating the mind and body)
  • Our selves have to go through a greater deal o f multitasking when we listen to music

C. Song

  • Transition from environment of bar to the music being played in the bar
  • Evokes mood and atmosphere in the environment
  • Mood is evoked through the combination of setting, lyrics, music, and dance
  • Jazz and Blues: It’ s not about feeling sad, it’s what you do with those feelings (have you decided to write a song? Have you decided to paint a picture? Write a story?)
  • a sensation occurs when one hears something and it evokes a certain feeling.
  • punctum/”sting”- felt emotionally
  • Cyber Duende- “Having outlined the features of mood and atmosphere associated with syncretic music, we now review the connection of this civilizational movement with new media. Everything to do with “cyberspace” we take as an attempt to theorize a rhetoric imaging.”

D. Live vs. The Video

  • Being immersed in something will give you a different feeling or mood than just simply watching it
  • A music video “can be anything”- no rules, no oppression
  • Organization of ideas

E. Overlapping and Discrete

  • The parts of our popcycle evoke different moods- what are the feelings/behaviors when I am part of this situation
  • Although the may run together, they are on different levels
  • There is a person attached to the end of the mouse or tapping the keyboard- we must bring ourselves to the screen
  • When you go to Gator game that is different feeling than going to to church
  • Mood of thought- combining emotional with intellect

E. Apparatus

  • Do we need to understand a piece of media?
  • Or does media simply need to evoke a response?
  • We must be receptive and open to it- what am I willing to understand?
  • Not simply your mind plugged into the computer, has to go through some interface
  • “Liquid Architecture”, what interface are you using when you are listening? Something must be happening, you are feeling something, you are changed, but you haven’t been shocked or physically prodded- something is happening, but what?
  • Music is an embodied experience, not a mind/body split like in literacy

    Notes on a couple of the key topics from chapter eight:

    Bar (Street)

    -Consider more closely the site of the encounter
    -Often occurs in a bar or “watering hole”
    -Forward progress of narrative is arrested
    -More focus on atmosphere and mood than on the plot line

    Song
    -Transition from environment of bar to the music being played in the bar
    -Evokes mood and atmosphere in the environment
    -Mood is evoked through the combination of setting, lyrics, music, and dance


  2. Chapter 8:

    -it’s the transformation from literacy to electracy

    -the mood taken from atmosphere

    -song: tango evokes emotion

    -Tango: about passion, power, seduction, anger, etc. mood can be slightly different.

    Cyber Duende- “Having outlined the features of mood and atmosphere associated with syncretic music, we now review the connection of this civilizational movement with new media. Everything to do with “cyberspace” we take as an attempt to theorize a rhetoric imaging.”

    -an embodied experience/mood

    -a sensation occurs when one hears something and it evokes a certain feeling.

    -punctum/”sting”- felt emotionally
