Transcript of RILEY ROCK TAXONOMY

Five layers to rock recordings...
RILEY ROCK TAXONOMY
3. ARRANGEMENT
2. MUSIC AS MATERIAL
5. CONCEPTUAL
instrumentation, orchestration

The music as the painting, the ARRANGEMENT as the FRAME, setting, or platform.

Marriage of performance, material, arrangement can combine for IDEAL rendition: Dylan.

FORM vs. CONTENT
1. MUSIC AS PERFORMANCE
instrumentalists: lead and support
vocalists
vocal harmonies
ensemble: guitars, bass, drums, keyboards (quartets, quintets, trios)

"Twist and Shout"
song: music with/without lyrics
melody, harmony, rhythm
text: singer, assumed audience, form of address: "I" or "You," narrative or non-linear, story vs. mood...
Lennon-McCartney "From Me To You"
poetic, aesthetic

How does the TOTAL form a larger whole:

musician, singers: performing
+
material: songwriting
+
frame: arrangement, song sequence
+
2nd frame: engineering, mixing, production
all adds up to:
=
CONCEPT, GESTALT
4. PRODUCTION
1. Recording values, production qualities

2. How does the TAPE/TRACK of a song frame the
arrangement, playing and singing of the material?

3. New level of FORM vs. CONTENT: performance, material, arrangement, and PRODUCTION of a track enhances IDEAL qualities. Crystallized performances become oral tradition's corollary to "written score."
