Alan VanToai Section 109 Ash-Morgan MUET200 Quiz #2 1. In the video clip of Metallica’s “Sandman” what element(s) contribute to a sense of power and freedom? Many listeners appreciate metal for the sensation of power and freedom that they feel when listening to the music. Leather clothes, virtuosic guitar playing, and the use of power chords all contribute to these sensations. Leather clothes stand out and are a symbol of strength and power. Leather itself is a very durable and flashy material, and can be quite costly and eye-catching. The musician’s use of leather clothes makes them stand out as powerful figures. The virtuosic guitar playing, or “shredding”, is a prominent part of metal music, and is a very high-energy and technically challenging element of music. The sounds are very bold yet versatile and improvised, giving the listener a feeling of freedom and power. Power chords are the building blocks of metal songs, and are often very bold and loud. Although they’re simple, they’re very versatile and are easily transposed into any key. This adds to the sensation of freedom and power attributed to metal music. 2.
