How do artists create alternative perspectives?
the Inuit tribe were spread across different regions close to the arctic, but not in the arctic, as they were facing derma-frosting caused by global warming.
Idea 5: I can use a polyphonic texture to express the different natural landscapes, then through the song I can decrease the amount of layers to show the decreasing and demolishment of natural landscapes to those the negative human impacts towards the environment of the Inuit culture. As the layers decrease I will add in the modern sentimental music to show the sadness of the inuit people having to move out of the arctic
They lived in china, away from where they originated which was russia.
change of instruments - from using only voice to using stringed instruments
use of pentatonic scales in their music
mountains / icelands
The Inuit people lived among the mountains, they usually used percussion instruments like drums and such, and accompanying them were their singing. Their singing usually consisted of four notes, they used the tetratonic scales.
Idea 1: using throat singing samples from the Inuit people, then combining it with the modern rock genre and use electric guitar as a the backtrack to the throat singing. The scale will be tetratonic.
Usually the Maori tribes would live in the forests, most of the types of instruments they use are percussion instruments and the scales they use most commonly are tritonic scales.
I can use instruments like bongos, drums and such, and for the melody i can use a piano to include a blend of maori rhythms with a modern instrument playing a triton scale.
Idea 2: I can create a piece that uses the tritonic scale of the Maori tribe with using a flute to imitate the putatara of the Maori tribe, then blend it with modern heptatonic chords on the piano.
The mongolians lived around grasslands and often used the pentatonic scale to give an oriental vibe
I can use an instrument similar to morin khuur which is commonly used in mongolian music
Idea 3: I can play a piano's black keys only as they would be considered as tonal pentatonic and reflect the mongolians and chinese music culture in the melody, then combine this melody with modern rhythms from the pop genre.
New Zealand Wars
The Maori tribe had many chants involving war, they usually used drums and percussion for these songs and sung the tunes
I can compose a song with using similar rhythms with their war songs however I can change the tunes a little bit and combine it with war songs from the west during world war 1 or 2.
War between China and Mongolia
colonised by chinese government
they started using pentatonic scales
started using more stringed instruments like Erhu and Guzheng
They were colonised by the british colonisation
change of instruments: from aerophones like seashell horns and percussion like coconut shells to string instruments like guitar and ukulele and percussion like drums and shakers
change of scale: from tritonic to heptatonic
change of genre: progression from tribal and traditional to pop or reggae
the british colonisation caused a lot of urbanisation taking place in their regions
caused the change of instruments
