Please note that you must have the most recent copy of Macromedia's Flash plugin installed to play the musical examples.

Listen to the following examples. How would you describe the overall destiny? Choose "strong round-trip" if the work endswith an unequivocal return to its starting point. Choose "weak round-trip" if the end is an incomplete, insecure or moretenuous return. Choose "one-way progression" if the music ends in a significantly different way than it began.

Among the examples are several ambiguous ones. The distinction between a strong round-trip and a one-way progression is anemphatic one. However, the "weak round-trip" is a greyer category, midway between the two extremes: ambivalent about itsreturn, but not decisive enough to have moved completely away. The distinction between this middle category and the extremeones is not always clear-cut. Consider each example carefully and be sure to come to your own conclusions: Wrestling withambiguity is an important feature of analysis and interpretation. When it is appropriate, the answer key carefullyexplores competing points-of-views. One of the telling features of the ambiguous examples is that, in order to argue a position,a deeper knowledge and more thoughtful hearing of the whole score is required. Thus, using the overall destiny as a starting point gradually draws you into thecontent of the music.

FURTHER LISTENING: Schubert's song "Der Doppelganger" and Hugo Wolf's song "Verlasse Magdlein" are 19th-century examples of weak roundtrips. In each case, the music's overall destiny potently reflects the text. Mel Powell's "String Quartet" is a modern example of a one-way progression. The composer described the piece as a "ball of yarn gradually unfurling." The single movement quartet begins with dense, turbulent activity in which the four players play independently. It gradually works itself towards a single line melody--which the composer playfully called "Jewish boogie-woogie"--played in unison by the quartet.

what is fullerene does it is used to make bukky balls
Devang Reply
are you nano engineer ?
fullerene is a bucky ball aka Carbon 60 molecule. It was name by the architect Fuller. He design the geodesic dome. it resembles a soccer ball.
what is the actual application of fullerenes nowadays?
That is a great question Damian. best way to answer that question is to Google it. there are hundreds of applications for buck minister fullerenes, from medical to aerospace. you can also find plenty of research papers that will give you great detail on the potential applications of fullerenes.

so some one know about replacing silicon atom with phosphorous in semiconductors device?
s. Reply
Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.
