Work Made For Hire – Analyzing The Multifactor Balancing Test, Ryan G. Vacca 2015 University of Akron

Work Made For Hire – Analyzing The Multifactor Balancing Test, Ryan G. Vacca

Akron Law Publications

Authorship, and hence, initial ownership of copyrighted works is oftentimes controlled by the 1976 Copyright Act’s work made for hire doctrine. This doctrine states that works created by employees within the scope of their employment result in the employer owning the copyright. One key determination in this analysis is whether the hired party is an employee or independent contractor. In 1989, the U.S. Supreme Court, in CCNV v. Reid, answered the question of how employees are distinguished from independent contractors by setting forth a list of factors courts should consider. Unfortunately, the Supreme Court did not give further ...

K-Pop Or K-Death? The Mirrored Oppression From Hollywood In The 1930s, Molly Welsh 2014 Chapman University

K-Pop Or K-Death? The Mirrored Oppression From Hollywood In The 1930s, Molly Welsh

Undergraduate Student Research Day Abstracts and Posters

In the 1930s, the film industry in Hollywood set the standard of “Hollywood filmmaking” with its development of star-contracts so oppressive, actors would be trapped for years within them. However, the implications of creating such a star-system have far surpassed what William Hays believed he was doing in the 1930s. In South Korea, a big star-system still exists and in many ways, mirrors what the United States did in the 1930s. What is informally known as “K-Pop” is a label for the music industry that seeks to emulate western ideals not only in looks, but in practice. This system allows ...


Mirroring Reality: Music In Video Games, Allison Burr 2014 Chapman University

Mirroring Reality: Music In Video Games, Allison Burr

Undergraduate Student Research Day Abstracts and Posters

This paper explores the effectiveness of music in video games in terms of mood setting and immersion. The effectiveness of the emotion evoked is studied through both personal and scholarly research. Four video games are explored from different game genres. In "Bioshock" and "Fallout 3", the music immerses the player into the environment of the video game, whether it is an underwater dystopia or the post apocalyptic Washington DC area. "Dead Space", a survival horror game set on an abandoned mining vessel in space, pushes the boundaries in terms of musical dissonance and terror by using innovative sound design. The ...


He Started The Whole World Singing A Song, Brian R. Cates 2014 Cedarville University

He Started The Whole World Singing A Song, Brian R. Cates

B.A. in Music Senior Capstone Projects

Throughout history, people from a variety of backgrounds have commented on the relationship between music and language. Several say that music transcends language; some refer to music as being another language; others believe music actually speaks. In spite of a diversity of responses, there is still a collective sense that music and language are intriguingly related—a profound, intuitive awareness of some type of bonding agent between the two. Music has also been perceived throughout history to possess meaning and power, both on a grand, cosmic level and an anthropic, human level. For the Greek philosopher Plato, music acted as ...

Suite For Kabbalat Shabbat: Five Hebrew Prayers, Steven J. Kaup 2014 University of Nebraska - Lincoln

Suite For Kabbalat Shabbat: Five Hebrew Prayers, Steven J. Kaup

Student Research, Creative Activity, and Performance - School of Music

Suite for Kabbalat Shabbat: Five Hebrew Prayers is a setting of five Hebrew prayers that are presented during Kabbalat Shabbat, the welcoming portion of a customary Shabbat service. The musical setting for each prayer strives to embody characteristic feelings conveyed by the text in order to capture the essence and power of the Shabbat tradition. One of the primary goals of this composition was to explore new harmonic possibilities using tonalities derived from traditional Jewish musical structures and motivic ideas as a point of departure, and then find ways to fluidly blend them within the more common compositional practices of ...

Multi-Percussion In The Undergraduate Percussion Curriculum, Benjamin A. Charles 2014 SelectedWorks

Multi-Percussion In The Undergraduate Percussion Curriculum, Benjamin A. Charles

Benjamin A Charles

As the role of the percussionist has evolved throughout the past century, a new genre of one performer playing multiple percussion instruments has evolved, most commonly known as “multi-percussion.” Undergraduate percussion programs have struggled to keep up with the increasing demand for students to perform solo multi-percussion repertoire. This study first evaluates the role of multi-percussion in the curriculum with a historical overview and a survey of current practices. It then explores the possibilities for integrating multi-percussion into the undergraduate percussion curriculum by providing a repertoire guide and a four-year course of study for undergraduate students.

The Effect Of Smartmusic On Student Practice, Brian Duane Nichols

Doctor of Education in Teacher Leadership

The purpose of this study was to document the use of SmartMusic Interactive Practice Software and its effect on practice habits and motivation. The 12-week study measured participant practice time using paper practice charts and the online grade book/practice chart in SmartMusic Interactive Practice software. In addition, an 11-question Likert survey was administered pre and poststudy to measure students’ reactions and motivations to practice. Participants (N=38) were randomly assigned to either the SmartMusic group (SM, n=19) or the Contact Control group (CC, n =19). Data from an Independent Samples t test measuring group practice time indicate a ...


Artful Reading, Spontaneous Design: Integrating Philosophy, English, And Art In A Creativity Cluster, Vera Albrecht, Barbara Comins 2014 Washington Center at The Evergreen State College

Artful Reading, Spontaneous Design: Integrating Philosophy, English, And Art In A Creativity Cluster, Vera Albrecht, Barbara Comins

Learning Communities Research and Practice

This article informs about a multidisciplinary learning community targeting first year students from diverse cultural backgrounds at an urban community college. The combination of English, art, and philosophy of art in a Creativity Cluster offers an excellent opportunity for great teaching and learning experiences. Yet, how can faculty address the multiple challenges faced by inexperienced student readers who have little time to reflect on difficult texts or make thoughtful connections across disciplines? The authors find that students’ reading comprehension can be deepened and reinforced by dovetailing such manifold sources as poetry, short stories, plays, film, music, artworks, and readings in ...


The Impact Of Elisabeth-Claude Jacquet De La Guerre On Gender Roles In Music, Ryan Pilcher 2014 Florida State University

The Impact Of Elisabeth-Claude Jacquet De La Guerre On Gender Roles In Music, Ryan Pilcher

The Owl

Elisabeth-Claude Jacquet de la Guerre was a French composer whose career spanned the late seventeenth and early eighteenth centuries. Marcia Citron has argued that female composers have notoriously been excluded from the canon of musicology for various reasons. Among these reasons is the difficulty impressed upon women of the time to achieve recognition as professional musicians. In examining the societal obstacles women faced throughout history, Citron lists four benchmarks to musical professionalism: education, publication and repeated performance, critical reception, and to a lesser extent, composition within larger genres of music. When one considers these criteria for musical professionalism in the ...
