Personal reflection

People have different preferences, which determine how they live their daily life and how they make their decisions.On a personal level, it is important for a person to analyze his or her preferences in order to understand his or her own qualities or preferences.There are several types to consider, including extraversion versus introversion, sensation versus intuition, affective preference versus thinking, judgment versus perception.Extroversion and introversion are the most misunderstood phrases.Extroverts don’t have to talk loudly, introverts don’t have to be shy.On the contrary, introverts get energy from themselves, while extroverts get motivation from getting along with others.

Extroversion and introversion

Personally, I prefer extroversion to introversion.I don’t have any meaningful preference for one.I have a negligible preference for extroversion over introversion.

Feelings and intuition

Personally, I have a preference for feeling over intuition.Although it’s still very small, only 12 percent, this difference plays an important role in my choice.In the process of receiving and processing new information, I prefer to use the five senses rather than rely on more abstract intuitive methods.

Feel like thinking

This category includes how people make decisions and deal with emotions.Personally, I have a 3% marginal preference for thinking.It may not have much effect on my decision.

Judgment and perception

I have a moderate preference for judgment over perception, scoring 50 percent.This means that I deal with things in a more structured way than those who use perception, because they tend to limit rather than promote in a structured way.By judging, I can control the environment and make early choices.Perceivers, on the other hand, are always focused on keeping their choices open.As long as necessary, they will make a choice.

What Exactly is a Business Philosophy?

According to Adele Burney’s (n.d.) online article “The Importance of Business Philosophy,” a business philosophy is similar to a mission statement and/or a company’s vision. It is essentially “set of beliefs and principles that a company strives to work toward” (Burney, n.d.). So how can that be translated into your own, personal, business philosophy?

Jared Lewis (n.d.) discusses in his article “How to Apply Moral Philosophy to Business Ethics” the fact that our individual moral compass drives our business ethics and helps to define the culture we choose to create for ourselves.

Personal Business Philosophy

Anders Indset (2018) is The Business Philosopher. (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site. Read through his “Business Philosophy Introduction” (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site. and begin to develop your own thoughts, feelings, and ideas about what you consider to be most relevant when conducting business as a individual, an business owner, and/or an employee. 

Alain deBotton (2014) does a great job of expressing the implicit connection between business and philosophy. Small businesses and large companies alike “[cater] to the deeper human needs in the areas in which it operates (deBotton, 2014). How can you be an integral part of that level of connection between what you do and those you serve. Even if you, as an individual, do not directly serve the public or outside clientele, you still have internal people whom you serve.

For this MMB entry you will search YouTube and choose two pieces of music that correspond to Music & Experimentalism. One of the pieces must relate directly to the Western music tradition (art/popular/folk) and the other piece may or may not relate to this tradition. The choice is up to you, but you may not use pieces discussed as examples in a class or that are LGs. You may use new pieces by composers discussed in class.

 For your MMB entry you must:

· Embed the YouTube videos so that your instructor may access the music directly. (2 YT videos total)

· Provide the title of the piece with its corresponding composer and/or performer (for example, Symphony no. 7, movement 2, Allegretto; Ludwig van Beethoven; London Philharmonic) as text in your entry. (2 titles and composers and/or performers total).

· For EACH YouTube piece articulate (1) how the YouTube piece relates to the topic; (2) what type of meaning the piece holds for you or other audiences (for example the reason why you chose the piece might be linked to a personal meaning or a larger cultural/political/philosophical meaning); and, (3) how is the meaning described above linked to sound in particular (read: musical elements–you must discuss at least 2 musical elements (rhythm, melody, texture, harmony, etc.)). Feel free to use Wikipedia to investigate the pieces, but NEVER plagiarize or quote text from outside sources consulted on the pieces. Any information regarding the pieces in your entries must be written IN YOUR OWN WORDS. You will receive an automatic zero-grade for the Musical Meaning Blog if you plagiarize text from an outside source.

· You must address the 3 questions above in 300 to 400 words PER YouTube piece..

· Once you have completed an entry in your MMB, publish your blog. Click on “view” and then copy that URL. Please make sure the URL does NOT have the word “editor” in it: if this is the case, your Blogger page has not been published and can only be viewed by you, the creator. Go back and publish it. Then click on view to copy the URL. Never click share to copy your URL because you need a Google + profile to do this. If you are using a limited Blogger profile you will not be able to do this.

There is a good example of this assignment:

This song relates to the topic of experimentalism because Claude Debussy was a known experimentalist who expressed modernist ideals. He branched out from the norms in music from the 19th century Romantic Era. Claude Debussy was influenced by the World’s Fair, impressionism, and symbolism. This composer used his encounter with Russian nationalism music to influence his style that was new and unusual. He also utilized the French symbolism term of synesthesia to evoke multiple senses.

This artist holds meaning to me because Claude Debussy was a virtuoso in his time. He was accepted into high level music schooling at a young age and his music reflected his modernism values, which I find very inspiring. This specific piece holds meaning for me because Claire de Lune was one of the first songs I performed as a solo when I was in middle school band. During my third year of playing the alto saxophone I was chosen as a soloist to perform this song, and it encouraged me to continue playing and never give up on my hobby as a saxophonist.

The meaning is linked to sound because Debussy consistently uses free-flowing rhythm to show the fluidity and connectivity of the music. The song moves slowly and has no real sense of meter or pulse. This allows the listener to flow with the music and not feel rushed as one did in many Romantic pieces, such as the fast paced heartbeat shown in “The Elf King” by Franz Schubert. Claude Debussy also used chromatic and whole tone scales, which was also a huge step outside of the box of the Romantic Era. These chromatic and whole tone scales relates to the “playing around of colors and light” that was done by the artists at the time of his music. These modernist influences gave him the push to utilize other melodic scales that were not used in this way previously. The instrumentation used was just a piano, which displayed the simplicity of the piece.

This specific song and artist both relate to the topic of music and experimentalism because Nat King Cole was a modernist in his time. He was a jazz pianist and lead the way in African American performers of jazz ensembles and jazz soloists performances. He was influenced by the Mona Lisa painting when writing and performing this song, which relates directly to experimentalism. Experimentalism has to do directly with how artists such as Claude Debussy were influenced in the creation of their music, and Nat King Cole went with his inspiration from the Mona Lisa to create this piece. He often used his life experiences to sing about and create music in the jazz world, so this was just another song that he used his modernist style in creating.

This song holds meaning for me because my older neighbor loved to listen to Nat King Cole, so I grew up with this music. As you may have read in my previous blog posts, my family and friends are very influential in my life, so when they are drawn to a specific genre of music or a specific artist, I usually am as well. Nat King Cole was an influential African American performer in the jazz era, so because my neighbor was of African American descent, this resonated with her and influenced me.

In this song Nat King Cole uses repeated motives and phrases to get his point across about his feelings towards this Mona Lisa character. As aligned with other experimentalism ideas, Nat King Cole’s song has a free flowing rhythm with no sense of meter. This allows him to move at his own pace depending on how he is feeling from line to line. For example, at points in the song when he is asking a question, the music slows as if he is waiting for a response from someone. Also, the song is homophonic with his voice as the main melody and the piano he plays in the background as accompaniment. He does this so to show his one on one conversation with the Mona Lisa figure, so there is no polyphony involved.

In this essay you should combine your practice responding and analyzing short stories with support derived from research. So far, in the discussion boards, we have practiced primarily formal analysis.  Now I want you to practice “joining the conversation.”  In this essay you will write a literary analysis that incorporates the ideas of others.  The trick is to accurately present ideas and interpretations gathered from your research while adding to the conversation by presenting your own ideas and analysis.    

You will be evaluated, in part, on how well you use external sources.  I want to see that you can quote, paraphrase and summarize without plagiarizing.  Remember, any unique idea must be credited, even if you put it in your own words.

Choose one of the approaches explained in the “Approaches to Literary Analysis” located at the bottom of this document. Each approach will require research, and that research should provide the context in which you present your own ideas and support your thesis.  Be sure to properly document your research.  Review the links in the “Writing about Literature” tab as these will help guide you.

While I am asking you to conduct outside research, do not lose sight of the primary text to which you are responding—the story!  Your research should support yourinterpretations of the story. Be sure that your thesis is relevant to the story and that you quote generously from the story.

Purpose:  critical analysis, writing from sources

Length: 5 pages, approx 1500 words

Documentation:  Minimum of 5 sources required.  Documented in MLA format. (Note: review the material in “finding and evaluating sources” to help you choose relevant and trustworthy sources.
