Introduction to Minimalism
Usually at this point in the year, you would start preparing to do your first of two compositions, which are part of your GCSE coursework. And this year is going to be no different!
This composition will be a composition in a minimalist style. This first task will involve research about minimalism, and your second task is a small composition exercise on a website.
Minimalism is a style of music which originated on the West coast of America in the 1960s. It uses lots and lots of ostinato (repeated musical patterns).
If you have already completed this task then please email your teacher for an extension!
Task 1: Poster on minimalism
Do some online research about minimalism. Find out information on its:
- Background & context
- Musical elements
- Famous composers & pieces
There is a lot of information about it out there. These are some great links to get you going:
Create a poster on minimalism. You can do this in whichever way you like – Microsoft word, publisher, PowerPoint, or even on plain paper. It must contain plenty of detailed information, and make it as colourful and decorative as possible. Include lots of images or drawings.
