Which role (if any) was the most dominate / influential in creating meaning?

So how do you create meaning?  For this assignment I want you to pick a song that has been remade (feel free to use the list I have created or use one of your own).

 

PICK ONE OF THEM:

A Groovy Kind of Love – Phil Collins: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lbF0QLwtwCc

 

A Groovy Kind of Love – The Mindbenders: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GK7qo0-TwV0

 

 

Home Sweet Home – Motley Cruehttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3NPQJKaDLgY

 

 

Georgia on my Mind – Ray Charles: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Thls_tMuFkc

 

Using terms that you have discussed so far in class and terms that we have used this session, Compare how meaning is created differently in the 2 songs (or argue the opposite – that there is no change in the meaning of the song).  Key things to think about as you craft your response:

1.  We talked about the writer, the singer(s), and the listener and how meaning is a collaborative effort.  What was each person’s role in creation of meaning?

2.  Which role (if any) was the most dominate / influential in creating meaning?

3.  How did each role go about creating meaning?  What techniques were used?

4.  Are there any other “outside” influences (age, time, context, etc.)? How did they contribute?

Assignment Format:  Your “presentation’ should be done in a Powerpoint or Prezi format.  You need to post your assignment to the Session 6 discussion board.  Once everyone’s project is posted, the class will vote for their favorite and most convincing argument (voting will take place on the Session 7 discussion board)

What is Prezi?  Think of it as an “amped up” version of powerpoint.  It is free as long as you use your  ivytech.edu email address when registering.  It’s easy to pick up and use.  They have several guides and templates and samples for you to see.  Check it out!

www.prezi.com OR simply search for “Prezi”

What I am looking for: The use of Terms, Specific Examples and Detail.  Be sure to incorporate all three in your “presentation”.  Overall, how well did you show how meaning is created?  Oh, some creativity in the Powerpoint / Prezi would be good too…  have some fun with it!  Feel free to use audio clips from the 2 songs to prove your points as well.
