For this forum you should choose one instrument from China or Taiwan and classify it using the Hornbostel-Sachs method. This includes the numerical hierarchy for your specific instrument.
There are enough instruments, especially stringed instruments, so that each student can choose their own.
Each student should just create one Post for this forum–No need for response posts.
In the Lecture notes and textbook there are musical instruments mentioned. You may also refer to this comprehensive list: (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Chinese_musical_instruments)
———————————————————————————————————————————————————————————-
The Hornbostel-Sachs is a method of classifying musical instruments that is not limited to Strings/Brass/Woodwinds/Percussion.
Instead of these four categories, Hornbostel-Sachs has 5 main categories:
IDIOPHONE – AEROPHONE – ELECTROPHONE – CHORDOPHONE – MEMBRANOPHONE
* Instruments are classified by how the sound is produced. Notice for example, that percussion instruments (as we know them) are split into Idiophones (anything that is struck, such as a tambourine) and Membranophones (drums and other instruments with skins or membranes that vibrate to produce the sound).
* As another example, the piano has been traditionally categorized as both a percussion and a stringed instrument. Along with violins and guitars, the piano is categorized in Hornbostel-Sachs as a Chordophone–instruments with strings that are either plucked, struck or bowed.
* Notice also that there is an Electrophone category, to include the obvious like electric guitars.
INSTRUCTIONS:
1. Show a breakdown of the numerical hierarchy (category) that your instrument falls into. Provide a description/explanation of the MAIN CATEGORY (e.g. AEROPHONE, IDIOPHONE, etc.) AND ALL OF THE SUB-CATEGORIES. Notice in the example below, there are 4 sub-categories)
2. Insert a picture of the instrument into the post by uploading the picture as an attachment to the post or copy it directly into the post if Ilearn allows you to.) no weblinks to photos please
3. Title your post with the Name of the Instrument (not your name, as this will be added automatically)
4. Provide a youtube link with a recording of the instrument.
Copy or type all of your information directly into the Discussion post–It’s OK to write out all of the information in a separate file first, but please do not upload your file as an attachment!
Here is an example of what your post should look like in the Discussion:
Instrument: SPOONS (Hornbostel-Sachs 1.11.111.14)
Idiophones (1) – all instruments in which sound is produced primarily by way of the instrument itself vibrating without the use of membranes or strings
Struck idiophones (11) – Idiophones set in motion by a percussion action: hitting, shaking, or scraping. They consist of one or several pieces made of a sonorous substance and are struck with a stick or a similar device with rotary motion of the arm. They are distinguished by their materials. Struck idiophones are one of the two categories of struck idiophones: directly (111) and indirectly (112) struck.
Directly struck idiophones (111) – the player strikes the instrument themselves
Concussion vessels or vessel clapper (14) – two similar objects that are struck together to create sound. The “vessel” is any size hollow on the surface. In the photo below, the vessel is a round carved area in each of the wooden “spoons”.
