Creating, interpretation and presentation

Module 17

Simple and regular beat/rhythm


E xample of a simple and regular beat/rhythm:

Examples of irregular beat

E xample of compound time:

In compound time, each beat is divided into 3, in contrast with the simple time where each beat is divided into 2.

In this case, there are 4 beats, i.e. compound quadruple time.

STEP 2: Performing of various metres

As soon as you are familiar with the different beat meters, you can perform them in the following manner:

- Body percussion

Combination of clapping, hitting fists against each other, clap on thighs

- drums

Combination of various drum techniques ( slap, tone, bass )

STEP 3: Application

The following quote was taken from a speech at the unveiling of a monument on Heritage Day (1996). Read the quote and then answer the questions.

Who, do you think, made this speech?
To which song does the "it" refer?
In whose honour was the monument erected?
Who composed "Die Stem" (The Call of South Africa?)
Who was responsible for the words of "Die Stem"?
Mention other examples of music heritage from your own culture.

Follow the educator's instructions in the performing of the song.

STEP 4: Application

Examples of music from my own culture:

Check out the following website to see what heritage means to well-known people: (External Link)

Activity To organise and market a production LO 1.10

Have you ever wondered who is responsible for everything you see and hear in a production? Why is the production being presented? Who is responsible for the programme? Where do the funds for the costumes come from? Who is responsible for the sound effects?

At the end of this activity you should have all the answers.

STEP 1: Group


“Make an occasion of....................!”

As a class, discuss and then decide on an occasion for a musical performance that you can plan, organise and market.

Use the following guidelines for your decision-making process. As soon as you have finalised the type of production and theme, complete the table to highlight problem areas and to make notes.

Target group
Type of production
Time Date:

STEP 2: Individual

From the discussion and decision-making process, you will have realised that you do not only need an orchestra and singers for the production!

There are several other aspects to consider, which also require creativity, planning and organization, in order to stage a successful production:

- administrative: (e.g. financial aspects, fund-raisers, tickets)

- artistic: (e.g. dancers, designers)

- technical: (e.g. lights)

Name four advantages that a production has for the community:

STEP 3: Individual

Study the following table. The educator will define each aspect.

Then you must indicate which section or sub-section interests you. Take your talents and interests into consideration - do not be modest!

M arketing P roduction
Fundraiser Advertising Other Technical Design Dance Music
- publicity - programme - tickets- refreshments - lightning- stage- sound - decor- costumes- props

Questions & Answers

how do they get the third part x = (32)5/4

can someone help me with some logarithmic and exponential equations.
Jeffrey Reply
sure. what is your question?
okay, so you have 6 raised to the power of 2. what is that part of your answer
I don't understand what the A with approx sign and the boxed x mean
it think it's written 20/(X-6)^2 so it's 20 divided by X-6 squared
I'm not sure why it wrote it the other way
I got X =-6
ok. so take the square root of both sides, now you have plus or minus the square root of 20= x-6
oops. ignore that.
so you not have an equal sign anywhere in the original equation?

algebra 2 Inequalities:If equation 2 = 0 it is an open set?
Kim Reply
or infinite solutions?
The answer is neither. The function, 2 = 0 cannot exist. Hence, the function is undefined.

I start with an easy one. carbon nanotubes woven into a long filament like a string
many many of nanotubes
what is the k.e before it land
what is the function of carbon nanotubes?
I'm interested in nanotube
what is nanomaterials​ and their applications of sensors.

what is nano technology

what is system testing?
preparation of nanomaterial
Victor Reply
Yes, Nanotechnology has a very fast field of applications and their is always something new to do with it...
Himanshu Reply
good afternoon madam
what is system testing
what is the application of nanotechnology?
In this morden time nanotechnology used in many field . 1-Electronics-manufacturad IC ,RAM,MRAM,solar panel etc 2-Helth and Medical-Nanomedicine,Drug Dilivery for cancer treatment etc 3- Atomobile -MEMS, Coating on car etc. and may other field for details you can check at Google
anybody can imagine what will be happen after 100 years from now in nano tech world
after 100 year this will be not nanotechnology maybe this technology name will be change . maybe aftet 100 year . we work on electron lable practically about its properties and behaviour by the different instruments
name doesn't matter , whatever it will be change... I'm taking about effect on circumstances of the microscopic world
how hard could it be to apply nanotechnology against viral infections such HIV or Ebola?
silver nanoparticles could handle the job?
not now but maybe in future only AgNP maybe any other nanomaterials
I'm interested in Nanotube
this technology will not going on for the long time , so I'm thinking about femtotechnology 10^-15
can nanotechnology change the direction of the face of the world

At high concentrations (>0.01 M), the relation between absorptivity coefficient and absorbance is no longer linear. This is due to the electrostatic interactions between the quantum dots in close proximity. If the concentration of the solution is high, another effect that is seen is the scattering of light from the large number of quantum dots. This assumption only works at low concentrations of the analyte. Presence of stray light.

the Beer law works very well for dilute solutions but fails for very high concentrations. why?
