I have attached my teachers feedback along with an example of a power point she has given. She is requesting a WIKI or power point, I have no idea how to create a Wiki. Here is this weeks assignment:Stage Two: The Presentation, due no later than 5/6Collectively, with the work divided any way you see fit (as long as each member contributes something), you will post a group Wiki presentation with media components. This should reflect a mixture of your own insights, commentaries, and outside resources, and can include music, movie clips, artwork, songs, and more. Be creative! Once you play around with the Wiki pages, I think you will find them to be intuitive, but there are tutorials about how to create them within our site and elsewhere online (if you search creating a Wiki project/Blackboard or similar). As always, post or e-mail any questions as they come up.

Life is for the living.
Death is for the dead.
Let life be like music.
And death a note unsaid.
Music and Death
Exploring the connection between music and death
Music – DEFINED
Music is defined as an art of sound in time that expresses
ideas and emotions in significant forms through the
elements of rhythm, melody, harmony, and color. Without a
doubt music has a way of bringing out our emotions
depending on what type of music we are listening to at
that moment. But isnt it incredible to think that a song
one day can make you so happy but then the next day
? Why is music considered therapeutic?
? For me, music has been there to help me through some very
tough times in my life. When I am feeling down I can find a
song to lighten my mood and help me through what it is Im
? One of the main reasons why music can be therapeutic is
because music is a core function in our brain. This is because
at a young age we are taught to process sounds, almost as a
means as a different language.
? Lastly music is scientifically proven to tap into our
emotions. This is the therapuetic way to feel better by
listening to your favorite music. There are people called
music therapists that use music to more easily access
their patients emotions.
How music can affect us
Music can affect our brain in many positive ways. We all
know what types of music can trigger our emotions
whether it be in a negative or positive way. Music can
keep you focused, motivate you, and keep you going.
On the other hand music can also affect us negatively
by triggering and unwanted emotion that was felt in
the past which is connected to a certain song. Music
can also negatively affect children when the music is
inappropriate or too suggestive/mature.
In the end though, music is more positive than
negative and has more helping affects than harmful.
How death can affect us
The loss of someone close to you can quickly turn
anyone’s life upside down. The person can feel
lost, helpless, and unstable while going through
these hard times. I am also familiar with these
feelings as I have lost some people close to me
in my time. Emotions can be strong and intense
and can really wear someone down. Everyone
gets that feeling that they are alone and that no
one understands what you are feeling. Although
people feel that way, they must know they arent
alone and everyone has gone through something
Why do we choose music to cope
with the death of a loved one?
The one thing that everyone confides to though
is listening to music. Luckily, music is there for us
no matter what. While things may be changing in
your life, that one song that gets you through
your day does not. Even your favorite artist or
that favorite album is something we all can go to
while feeling this way. Listening to music that
you enjoy can bring back many good memories.
Music is used as a recourse to cope with death as
well as reading a book or watching television. I
personally believe that music is the most
effective out of these while trying to cope.
Songs about Death
(Songs on this slide could be used when going through hard times.)
Blue Oyster Cult (Dont Fear) The Reaper
Bob Dylan Knockin on Heavens Door
Kanye West Coldest Winter
Tupac Life Goes On
On this slide you can compare the songs on here to the songs on the last
slide. As you listen to them try to think of your emotions and listen to the
lyrics in order to feel the music.
Queen Dont Stop Me Now
The Beach Boys Good Vibrations
Bon Jovi Livin on a Prayer
We all know that we can use music to cope
with the loss of a loved one or to put us in
a good mood. What we dont all know is
music is used by artist to help in the same
way but instead they pour all of their
emotions into the songs that they make in
order to express their feelings through
The following slides are examples
Queen The Show Must Go On
This song by Queen was recorded back in 1990. While this song
was being recorded, the lead singer of the band, Freddie
Mercury, was dying of aids. When listening to this song you
would never guess that he was so ill and could barely hold
himself upright. When listening closely you can hear the pain
and the emotion in his voice as he records one of his last
songs ever. The lyrics in this song as what makes it so special.
As Freddie is singing these lyrics, he is living through exactly
what the song is talking about. Even with Freddies passing,
the show must go on. Just a year after this song was recorded
Mercury passed away. The most beautiful thing is, even while
dead Freddie can impact and motivate so many people to do
what they love to do.
Bone Thugs-n-Harmony Tha Crossroads
This song by Bone Thugs was recorded back in 1995. If you watch the
video you can see how much emotion was put into the making of it
from the opening scene all the way until the end. Also, listening to
the lyrics will allow you to understand more of what the song is about
and how much pain they went through.
God bless you workin’ on a
plan to Heaven
Follow the Lord all 24/7 days
God is who we praise
Even though the Devil’s all
up in my face
See you at the crossroads
So you won’t be lonely
The crossroads is a place where
you are either placed on a path to
heaven or hell. The point of this is
seeing them at the crossroads so
they wont have to make the
journey alone. This song was
recorded just after the death of
rapper Eric Wright (AKA Eazy-E).
This was also recorded in
remembrance of Wishbones Uncle
? Falletta, Augusta. “27 Things That Can
Really Help You While You’re
Grieving.” BuzzFeed. N.p., n.d. Web. 07
Project Proposal: Cinema and Freedom
This project will focus on cinema and freedom as a topic. Regarding cinema as a
humanities topic, the project will explore the content and form of cinema and how it has evolved,
especially in the 20th century. By looking at the content and cinema form, it will be possible to
understand the technological, philosophical, and field growth in the cinema industry. Film form
will focus on specific forms such as documentary films that effectively portray freedom and
development. However, despite emphasizing particular film forms, the project will not limit its
scope to particular film forms. Good .this is very clear.
The theme of freedom will be emphasized in this project and it will be evaluated in its
connection to film. Freedom will be evaluated regarding how films have portrayed the freedom
of different people in the United States. These may be struggles for freedom among racial
minorities, such as African American and Black people in the United States. Primarily, the focus
on how cinema portrays freedom will show the development of freedoms in the country and the
involvement of different people along the way, such as .MLK, Martin Luther King?…or who
are you thinking? It sounds to me like Selma might make a good fit, as would The Help, The
Color Purple, Jungle Fever, and others. I think broadening the scope to include other
marginalized groups and genders (womens struggles?) might work, too. In that vein, something
like Forrest Gump might work. Also, here are some documentaries about womens rights. On
this site, you can watch three free:
More than just portraying freedom, cinema can also be viewed as enhancing the freedom
of filmmakers and people involved in cinema.well-put! This focal point will also be explored
due to the critical role that visual media plays in the society. Therefore, the project will also
outline how cinema has allowed the freedom of the people to grow over time. This freedom is
mainly the freedom of expression through speech and visual presentations. Primarily, this project
will handle cinema and freedom from a multi-perspective approach which will ensure complete
analysis of how cinema has developed and how the developments have affected or been affected
by freedom in the country.Good! So just discuss how you will present your findings. Starting
with a thesis and possibly a definition of each term (freedom and cinema or sub-term, if you
use concepts like biopic) usually anchors the presentation well. With film as a discipline, I
know you would integrate a lot of clips, but think about quotes from directors, audiences, and
even actors who have been given a chance at freedom of expression by unusual or bold casting
choices, like Laverne Cox in Orange is the New Black (although this specific example is not a
film .tv still works to include but it helps to keep your scope a little more narrow or you would
have infinite examples!)
Will you subdivide/organize your work chronologically? That makes sense to me, unless
you want to divide it by genre, which could also work well given your focal points. Think also
about what sources you will use. We have great film links on our resources tab on the left
I hope this helps, but please let me know if you have any questions!
