CMST 2040 Midterm Study Guide From lecture -All things effect one another -Provides us with language -Try to control what doing; audience may interpret it different. -Performance of Self: 1.) Performer: you and everyone you know and everyone you think you know -All humans; instruments: voice and body; something you do 2.) Text: on page; body; Nothing is outside the text; in eye of the beholder - Way we experience the world/words thru text - Anything can be looked at as a text (you can read it) and as an object; symbolic; performance becomes own text 3.) Context: situation (social: wedding; cultural; political; artistic) -Aesthetic Performance: -performance is a process -Dialogic: conversation between two people 1.) performers voice 2.) voice of text 3.) audience -try to attend to all voices; question differences so that you can understand them (different, similar, understand) Three ways we study performance: 1.) Aesthetic: objects -Performance is an object; cultural ritual 2.) Performance as a method of inquiry or understanding literature -System; series of steps 3.) Performance is a paradigm for studying human behavior; metaphor -All world is a stage Making not a faking: _The root of performance is to make, to do-not to fake. -Performance is a process in which individuals display and create themselves through the roles they elect to portray. -People are what they do. One’s “real self” is a composite of all these roles. -Brittney Spears: all her acts How performance is framed: -Baumon: framing: marking of communicative acting; marks what you are looking at; segments - starts here; ends here; marks off - “joke; play”-show: this is performing; putting things in context; way of understanding. - start: know when performing

Audience evaluation: audience evaluate skills and performance - Scream who dat; evaluating and expressing evaluation (clap, scream) 3.) Heightened experience: tell that it is different than everyday life; special for both the performer and the audience New Criticism: Staging: -Front stage: during a period of time when you know people are watching; face you put forward -Back stage: what you do when you think no one is watching; prepare for front stage; recoop from front stage (shower, get dressed, eat); no one is with you. Derrida’s Quote: From text Key words from Jaffe’s Vocal Section: - To create each character, you adjusted your rate of speech, volume, pitch and so on. - Quality: vocal attribute or features that create perceptions in the listeners. Memorable vocal qualities often distinguish memorable characters. o Nasal quality: send the sounds through nasal passages o Denasal quality: nasal passages are not used to project the sound.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
