The basis for musicians to successfully build artistic images in their musical works is to use specific melodies. Rímskicorxacop used folk tunes of Arab and Indian to paint a vivid picture of strange and mysterious Eastern lands (Serbian Symphony Orchestra).
The characteristic of the melody which is broadly said is the folk and ethnicity of the melody, which is a favorable prerequisite for building the artistic image of musical works. World music history has recorded the names and great careers of senior musicians, whose writing path is always associated with folk music, folk dance and folk arts.
Skillful art of mixing
The art of mixing will make the artistic image in the musical work stand out with strong inspiration and persuasion. We all know the huge volume of sound and the timbre of orchestral instruments are capable of creating rich, varied effects. And the greatest thing of the art of orchestration to the construction of an art form in musical works is to simultaneously speak up the great, profound and synthesized content.
Build authenticity in works
The basic characteristic of the art of music is to give listeners a common sense about the atmosphere and context of reality.
However, not so that the art of music leaves its function of reflection on reality. Even music without lyrics, listeners can also feel the content of the work.
Le Nin when listening to the No.23 – Apasionata of musician Beethoven had to say that he was always proud of being able to be naive thinking that people can do miracles. Because in this work, Beethoven has reflected the portrait of the hero of the time and the atmosphere of the boiling struggle of the European population in the late period of 18th century to the first half of the 19th century.
Composing a musical piece is difficult, but making it both appealing to the audience and ensuring the art is even more difficult. Because of that, nowadays, not every music product is born is considered authentic works of art in which something called ‘popular music’ appears.
Popular music is an emerging name in the music industry. And a sad fact is that music experts say that in the music market today popular music is dominant. So what is popular music?
Popular music is a type of music that is less artistic, born merely to satisfy the taste of the music player at a certain point and then immediately forgotten as if it never appeared. Market music does not require a high level of listeners, everyone can hear and memorize, the lyrics just turn around boring love content. This music line is not picky with singers, market songs are relatively easy to sing, even so-called singers do not need a relatively complete knowledge of music. Market song composers do not need to wait for ideas but just compose quickly according to their tastes.
Artistic or bullshit in popular music
Popular music tends to dominate music life. The person who knows the tastes of the audience is that he wins. Music activities gradually turned into a place to compete for opportunities, a place to win market share and sometimes a war for the influence of young singers. They are the stars that are fully supported by a powerful fan base.
Music market develops strongly because it meets the taste of listening to music of most young people, not because of the art in the works.
Build authentic art in music
In literature, art image is built by vivid and typical intuition, in music, art image is built by vivid and abstract senses. Therefore, the musician must grasp the expressive characteristics of music. In which, the musician’s imagination must be really rich, along with the relative comparison between the objective reality and the image that the musician wants to create in his musical works.
