For each module you will be expected to complete a short writing concerning the topics covered by the lecture and readings for that module and insert it as a text entry below. Please do not put your name in the text box with your writing. This GEC Writing Assignment is to be no less than 400 words, and no more than 500 words, in length, and will be assessed taking into account five areas: 1) word count; 2) summarize the key changes in scholarly perspective over time on the effects of technology on song/file sharing; 3) critically compare and contrast the opposing claims regarding the impact of song/file sharing on popular culture, mass media and the music business; 4) present a case for solving the problems that were created by the establishment of song/file sharing; 5) clear expression of the writer’s perspective on the subject matter; and, 6) use of proper grammar and punctuation.
For module 8, your paper should reflect your knowledge of how song-sharing sites like Napster and iTunes changes the manner in which consumers interact with a “physical product,” and your understanding of lawsuits filed by organizations like RIAA and bands like Metallica against illegal song-sharing sites and individual offenders
About Module 8
SONG SHARING (1980s-Today)
Module 8 covers events that occurred between the 1980’s and today. Of primary interest will be song sharing and its effect on music distribution and the music industry.
Introduction to Module 8
[MUSIC PLAYING]
Module 8 covers chapter 10 in our book and the onset of the digital age. Throughout the MTV
era and barreling towards the new Millennium, advances in technology began to occur at a
blindingly faster pace than they had in the first 80 years of the 20th century. Ways in which to
share songs became more advanced with the times.
One could have made a cassette mix tape of their favorite Madonna and Run DMC tunes in the
80s, burned a CD of their top 10 boy band songs in the late 90s, or even create an all-Metallica
playlist on a revolutionary service that caused a shift of monumental proportions in the music
industry– the file-sharing software infamously known as Napster. Without the restraints of a
physical product, the mainstay of 20th century music consumerism, a song could be shared to
anyone with a computer and internet access.
MP3 may be an altogether mundane term for you at present time, but few file formats have
caused more of an uproar in a single industry. The problematic nature of a digital product is
inherent to the medium. MP3s created a way to quickly access and store files anywhere. And in
response, files were quickly accessed and stored anywhere, sent anywhere, copied anywhere.
With the onset of the digital age, chapter 10 details how the concept of an album was
transformed into a fairly amorphous concept to listeners who may just purchase or potentially
pirate a single hit song from their favorite artist’s new album.
While reading this chapter, consider where you personally get your music from today and how it
might have changed over the last decade or more. Where do you store your music library? And
how much do you value ease of access? Imagine how you might consume music prior to
streaming services like Spotify or before the rise of torrent sites and digital file-sharing. The
music industry is changing on a yearly basis. And without realizing it, I am sure you are a part of
that change. Funny thought, huh?

THE PAPER YOU NEED TO WRITE NEEDS TO BE IN A SPEECH FORMAT RELATING TO THE PAPER

THE PAPER YOU NEED TO WRITE NEEDS TO BE IN A SPEECH FORMAT RELATING TO THE PAPER I ATTACHED ON HERE. PLEASE USE THE INFORMATION THERE AND ANY OTHER OTHER INFORMATION NEEDED TO ANSWER THE QUESTIONS BELOW! ANSWER ALL 10 QUESTIONS PLEASE AND THANK YOU. THE FOLLOWING TEXT IS A COPY AND PASTE FROM THE PROFESSOR.
MUS310 Oral Research Presentation
Your oral research presentation is where you orally discuss your research paper. Refer to the assignment prompt for some questions to answer in your presentation.
There are multiple options on how to complete the oral presentation; one should be able to see or hear students present, as if one were in class. Some of the options include: 1) video record yourself and post to YouTube as an unlisted link; 2) video record yourself and post/embed the video on Canvas; 3) audio and/or video record yourself and embed into a PowerPoint slide presentation. Many students have used Zoom to record themselves presenting a slide presentation. Presentations should be around 2-5 minutes max, give or take a few minutes.
1.What was your thesis – what did you research, were you trying to prove or demonstrate anything? What types of questions were you looking to answer by doing your research?
2.What is the relationship between the music and culture that you studied? Do people/cultures have an influence on the music or does the music influence culture?
3.How do people within a culture view the music you studied – did it seem like everyone feels the same about the music, as in the music has the same meaning to everyone within the culture? How about people outside of the culture?
4.Did you find any sort of ethical issues with the music and/or culture you studied – or potentially with people outside of the culture?
5.Is the music you studied being borrowed or appropriated by other cultures and if so, what kind of relationships are potentially formed by these cultures? Does it bring cultures together or could there be problems?
6.Can music, specifically the music or any musicians/bands you studied, be used in ways to bring about change in the world? Are there any examples that you came across – whether it’s through performances, festivals, PSAs (Public Service Announcements), music videos, or even actual participation in organizations – that can show how music, musicians, and/or bands impact society (locally, nationally, or globally).
7.Is it possible that the music you studied can play a role in addressing issues that today’s world is facing?
8.What is the possibility that music (musicians and bands) can connect with other industries or disciplines to benefit society? In general, do you think music can be a useful tool in your own industry or discipline and if so, what ideas do you have?
9.If you studied music related to your culture, what did you learn – anything new that you were unaware of? If the music was unrelated to your culture, what piqued your interest in learning about the music and culture and what sort of discoveries did you make?
10.Make some closing statements about your research!

Extra info from a professor:
The D.Mus. Composition thesis consists of an original composition with an accompanying analysis. Although we do not expect incoming student to already know the focus of their thesis, it is helpful if you can describe some of your recent compositional concerns both technical and philosophical. These may also be informed by studies you have made of the work of other composers or even by extra-musical disciplines. There is a lot of latitude in what you may discuss. We would like to see evidence of critical thinking and clear written expression.

The required word counts below do NOT include in-text citations.
1. Please choose one musical artist that is currently putting out music, that we have NOT studied in the textbook or in the discussion board posts. You may select any musical artist/group you would like as long as they are part of one of the genres, we have studied this semester and are not a tribute band, discussed in the book or used in your discussion posts. In a complete sentence below, list the name of the artist/group you would like to present on and why you chose that artist.
2. The first step of the oral presentation worksheet is to identify 3 scholarly sources that you will use as sources for the information you will present. Scholarly sources are not Wikipedia, AskMy Professor, WiseGeek, Quizlet, or Study.com. Look for sources that are .edu or .org as a starting point. The first thing that comes up when you google a artist/group is not always the best choice.
Using citefast.com create full citations and put them in alphabetical order. Citations should be in alphabetical order.
3. Your presentation must be 3 – 5 minutes in length. The rubric for this assignment requires three-part organization: introduction, body, and conclusion. In the spaces below, provide a few sentences that provide an overview of content you will present. At this time, I am leaving it up to you to determine what you would like to focus on in your presentation. In the box below, provide at least 150 words describing what you plan to discuss in the introduction. Do not type everything you plan to say, just the important ideas that will make up the introduction. Don’t forget to provide in-text citations in your writing below to show which source will provide the information.
4. The body of your presentation should have 3 main topics. Please list the three main topics you think are important in this musical artist’s life and a small amount of information about each.
