  1. How is the audience behaving? What are they doing?
    What about the performers?
    The audience is bopping, recording the performance, singing along. The audience is basically a crowd standing up and watching while the stage is a couple of feet taller. Khalid is singing while there are people dancing alongside time on stage. He’s dancing and posing altogether. Altogether the audience and the performer seem to be vibing and moving at the same pace.
    Differences
    – The audience is listening silently unlike how the audience in Khalid video is singing along and recording.
    – The audience is seated and you can tell the seating alls upward, the stage is center and below. In the performance with Khalid, the audience was standing and the stage was a couple of feet taller.
    – The performers are super professional, reading off music and have to act accordingly. In Khalid, it was a free performance and each time he performed that song it can be different.

    • I like how you discussed what the questions was asking exactly. Also I like how you included bullet point describing what your opinion and thoughts were to the questions asked. I also really liked how you throughly described what you thought the audience was doing and why there reaction was the way it was.

    • I like how you noticed the seating arrangements, and how it’s tilted towards the stage as compared to Khalid’s Coachella stage which is taller in height. Also, the fact that Khalid can change up his performance the way he likes, and the performers in the classical music concert sticks to the music as dictated by the conductor.

    • I like how we both noticed how the audience is singing along and they’re vibing at the same time. It is interesting because while watching the performance we tend to pay attention to the performer himself rather than the audience.

  2. Khalid’s Performance
    ————————————–
    1. How is the audience behaving?
    – The audience is behaving like anyone would in a ‘concert.’ They are recording the performer, they are dancing and grooving out, and they are singing along to what the performer is singing. This is what would typically happen in a ‘concert.’
    2. What are they doing?
    – The audience is singing along to Khalid’s performance and dancing and having a great time. The audience is standing up and singing.
    3. What about the performers?
    – The performer, Khalid is singing his songs from the top of his head without a script and is dancing at the same time he is singing.

    Some of the differences I noticed
    ——————————————————–
    Some of the differences that were majorly different from Khalid’s performance was that in the other performance it was a bit more organized, in which the crowd was seated and listening patiently. In this there weren’t phones recording. And the performer was not performing off the top of his head like Khalid, instead the performer was reading off a ‘dialogue’ in order to perform correctly.

    • I agree with how you mentioned in the differences that the other performance was more organized where the crowd was seated and listening. That was the first main difference I think I noticed. Comparing the two performance videos, the way the pieces were performed were completely different.

  3. How is the audience behaving? What are they doing?
    The audience is behaving like how everyone would normally do so at a concert. They are recording Khalid performing and waving their arms in the air to the music. They are also singing along to the music. Some people are also yelling in support to match the concert environment.
    What about the performers?
    The performers are dancing along to the beat of the music and Khalid is singing and moving around making small movements while also interacting with the other performers.
    Differences
    The differences that I noticed were that in Khalid’s performance, the audience was standing and recording him. They were also freely performing, doing their own thing to the beat. In the first movement of Symphony No. 5, the performers are rather sitting is an organized set up. The performers are also following a musical piece to play their instrument compared to Khalid’s performance which seemed more carefree.

  4. 3/19
    1. When they hear him singing they start recording on their phones, but they also move their heads, bodies to the beat of the song, some raising their arms in the air and moving them side by side with the rhythm. They’re also singing along, presumably whatever parts of the song they remember, and parts that are catchy like the bridge. When the song ends, they start cheering.
    2. When Khalid starts singing into the mike, he starts walking around the stage, keeping the audience engaged, instead of just standing still. There’s a dancer in pink, on stage with him who interacts with him. He hypes the audience up, asking them to sing with him again as they go into the last minute of the song.
    3. The performers are more into their craft, seriously, compared to the dancers and Khalid on stage, openly having fun. The audience is polite in keeping the etiquette when watching/listening to them perform, if they were like the audience at Coachella, they would’ve been thrown out of the room. Before the music started the audience clapped, then unanimously stopped, to enjoy the full concert without bothering the performers, and then at the end, when appropriate, they would clap again.

    3/20
    1. Compared to the space, as it’s in Carnegie Hall, the audience seems closer to the performers, like an intimate conversation, rather than far away. There’s only a few performers rather than an entire orchestra, and even so, the audience is keeping to the formalities of politeness as members of an audience to a classical music concert, not clapping until the end.

  5. 1) How is the audience behaving? What are they doing?
    The audience is behaving in a calm/smooth matter. They’re all singing along while Khalid is singing and they’re all recording him on their cell phones. A lot of them also put their hands up and sway them back and forth to the beat. Some of them also grab one another’s hand and raise them up high. A few of the audience members wave to him and towards the end they all cheer for him.
    2)What about the performers?
    Khalid himself is singing and we are able to realize that he gets into his feelings within the song. He seems very passionate about what he is singing. He is moving around the stage and dancing along to his music. His background dancers are behind him dancing along to the song.
    3) Three differences in how the audience and/or performers are behaving compared to the Khalid concert:
    The first difference I’ve noticed is that the audience in the concert hall are all sitting very calm and they seem very interested while listening to the performance. The audience is not singing along but at the Khalid concert, the audience members were all singing along. Another difference is that the performers are playing instruments at the concert hall. instead of singing like at the Khalid concert.

    • I like how the first thing that we both noticed was how different the audience was when comparing Khalid’s concert and the Symphony. We noticed the same exact things which was real cool. I didn’t notice that some of the people grab another’s hand and raise them up high so that was pretty cool.

    • I liked how you mention that when Khalid sings, the audience can realize he gets into his feelings. Nowadays most singers just do what they do for the money and fame but with him, his fans know that he is passionate and tries to make his songs relatable for everyone.

    • I like how you mentioned passion. I talked about the way he was moving and singing as giving but passionate is a good word to use to describe the performance. I feel like all musicians should be passionate about what they do for the best performance

  6. 1) How is the audience behaving? What are they doing?
    The audience is singing along, swaying their arms and just vibing to the song. They arent dancing as much, considering it is a slower song. Most of them have their phones out and they’re recording Khalid.
    2) What about the performers?
    Khalid at first is slowly walking around the stage, then he gets alittle more excited and starts dancing around. He then starts to dance with one of the background dancers. Theres also a moment in the performance where he just stops singing and lets the audience take over.
    3)Three differences
    The performers in the concert hall are way more concentrated to their work, as Khalid is having more fun and a good time on the stage. The audience in the concert hall are very quiet and just watching the performers, the audience at Coachella were obviously more engaged and into the performance, as they could dance and sing along. The performers in the concert hall were also sitting, and there were multiple different instruments being played.

    4)Differences between “The Joke” and Beethovens Symphony
    One major difference between the two performances is that in “The Joke” instead of having a composer, the performers are reading the musical notes infront of them. There are also not as many performers.
    One similarity is that the audience both reacted the same way, both were quietly listening and focusing on the music being played.

    • I agree with you about the audiences in both the “The Joke” and Beethoven’s piece both behaving properly and quiet. However, I believe that all performers in both performances had sheet music in front of them. But you were right about their not being a lot of performers during “The Joke” as there was during the rendition of Beethoven’s masterpiece.

  7. 1. How is the audience behaving? What are they doing?
    The audience is singing along to the lyrics of the song, and some of them are recording Khalid and and other performers on stage. Some others are also waving their arms to the tune of the music.
    2. What about the performers?
    The performers were dancing and sometimes interacted with Khalid, while Khalid himself is moving constantly across the stage while singing at the same time.
    3. Differences
    The audience is not humming or singing along in the first movement of Symphony No. 5, in contrast to the Khalid concert. In addition, the conductor is the only person who is really moving animatedly, while in the Khalid concert the dancers and him are both moving around. Also, the performers read off of sheet music in the orchestra, while Khalid sung Location without any lyrical help needed.

    • I agree with your comment that Khalid didn’t have anything thing helping him with the lyrics. Also the audience was singing along with him and where enjoying themselves freely

    • i agree with you regarding the make-up of both Khalid’s concert and the Orchestra. I would like to add on that the conductor had more responsibility in leading the Orchestra than Khalid had in singing to the audience. It was noticeable in multiple shots that Khalid would stop singing and begin to speak with his audience.

      • I agree with your post and also like how you added that while the orchestra had a music sheet to help them assist them on the notes they needed to play, and Khalid sung his song with no help as a difference.

  8. March 19
    1. How is the audience behaving? What are they doing?
    The audience is swaying back and forth to the beat as Khalid sings the song. Some people in the audience are waving their phone with their flashlight on as some sort of light and some are using their phones to record the performance. They sing along to his song as he sings. They are behaving how anyone would be behaving in a concert.
    2. What about the performers?
    The performers such as the dancers are constantly moving on the stage dancing around. The dancers interact with Khalid a few times as they are dancing. Khalid is singing while walking back and forth on the stage and interacting with the audience as he sings. He is singing and also getting the audience in the mood by saying some phrases to them.
    3. Come up with three differences in how the audience and/or performers are behaving, compared to the Khalid concert.
    The first difference that I noticed is the atmosphere in the place. It is very calm and very quiet compared to the concert where everyone was singing along and swaying left and right. Another difference would be that at Khalid’s concert he was singing while as the symphony, no one is talking and just playing instruments. The third difference is that everyone seems much more formal the reason being that everyone knew when to stop clapping, everyone was in somewhat formal wear, and just seemed very polite in that sense. Also that the performers didn’t really interact with the audience as much as they did in the concert because they all had to focus on the conductor.

    March 20
    1. Considering the space, audience, and performers, come up with one similarity and one difference.
    Comparing the chamber to the symphony, the biggest difference would be the space provided between the audience and the performer. One similarity would be the formal wear that is seen or the fact that there are only instruments playing rather than singing. Also that in both videos the audience is very polite and only claps towards the end out of respect for the performers.

    • Hi! I agree with everything you said and actually have a similar post. I found it interesting that the more official and quiet audience performances had only instruments and no singing. It seems that when there are only instruments, the audience must be more respectful to not disturb the hard working performers. I also noticed the difference in the audience applause. In concert and club settings, the applause is done throughout the performance but in orchestral performances, the applause is only done at the very end.

  9. 1.How is the audience behaving ? What are they doing?
    The audience is cheering and swaying to the beat of the song.
    2.What about the performers?
    The performers are dancing while Khalid, the singer, is singing and walking around the stage. He sings and even speaks in the middle of the performance.
    3.Come up with three differences in how the audience and or performers are behaving, compared to the Khalid concert.
    The performers are more solemn and they are sitting. They are playing their music diligently. They are not all active like in Khalid’s performance. They are not speaking in the middle of the performance like Khalid did.
    The audience is silent throughout the performance compared to Khalid’s performance where the audience was cheering and shining their phone cameras.
    All of the performers are doing the same thing, playing instruments. In the Khalid concert, some people were dancing, Khlaid was singing, and his band was playing instruments.
    4. What is one similarity and one difference between “Joke” and the Beetoween symphony?
    The string quartet, “Joke”, is performed in a much smaller concert hall and there are also much less performers than in the Beetoween symphony. The Beetoween symphony is performed in a much larger concert hall with much more performers. A similarity between the two performances is that they both are only instrumental performances. There are only instruments being used, there are no voices or singing. The audience also acts the same in both performances. They are seated quietly the entire time.

  10. 1.How is the audience behaving ? What are they doing?
    The audience is cheering and swaying to the beat of the song.
    2.What about the performers?
    The performers are dancing while Khalid, the singer, is singing and walking around the stage. He sings and even speaks in the middle of the performance.

    4. What is one similarity and one difference between “Joke” and the Beetoween symphony?
    The string quartet, “Joke”, is performed in a much smaller concert hall and there are also much less performers than in the Beetoween symphony. The Beetoween symphony is performed in a much larger concert hall with much more performers. A similarity between the two performances is that they both are only instrumental performances. There are only instruments being used, there are no voices or singing. The audience also acts the same in both performances. They are seated quietly the entire time.

    • Hi Sophia! I like how you mentioned that Khalid even speaks in middle of the song, showing how chill the atmosphere and how much improvising there was at the concert. I also agree with you when you mention that in both Beethoven and the string quartet the audience is seated quietly the entire time, which is something that is the norm for those type of concerts. Great post!

  11. 1) How is the audience behaving? What are they doing?
    Throughout the concert, the audience members seem to be singing along and waving their arms. Some fans are also recording the performance with their phones. Towards the end, the fans cheer for Khalid and show their appreciation for him.

    2) What about the performers?
    Khalid being the center of attention, walks around the stage as he sings. At some point he dances, but nothing crazy since his backup dancers are doing most of the work. He also is engaged with his audience members, and hovers his microphone over their heads as if they are a part of the performance too. This shows that he would not be where he is if it was not for all his fans.

    3) Come up with three differences in how the audience and/or performers are behaving, compared to the Khalid concert.
    -The audience members during the orchestra concert were seated instead of standing up.
    -The audience members were not loud and singing along, but more so quiet and listening to the distinct characteristics of Beethoven’s fifth symphony.
    -The performers were not able to dance around and have flexibility in how they perform. They are in more of a strict environment considering the conductor’s expectations. The performance was also more organized since each group of instruments depend on each other.

    4) Considering the space, audience, and performers, come up with one similarity and one difference.
    One similarity between the chamber music and symphony was that they both include string instruments. There were violins, violas, and cellos in each. One difference is that in the chamber music, there was no conductor leading them. This makes the performers more dependent on each other. That is also why it is easier to perform with three other people, compared to a whole symphony.

    • Your comments are similar to mine, where the audience at the end in Khalid’s performance gave applause and how people were seated and uniform. I liked how you gave a difference in terms of the loudness of the music and how each instrument correlates with each other. That was interesting to read as well, how they did not have enough room to dance and move like Khalid’s performance, it has more flexibility.

    • Good point on how there’s no conductor with a chamber orchestra, they rely on their movement and eye contact to stay together, as well as relying on the first violin.

  12. 1. The audience is behaving by waving their hands, swaying to beat, singing along with Khalid, cheering and filming. Khalid is singing, dancing, smiling, interacting with dancers, improvises by adding in singing wherever he wants, talks to the audience and takes some breaks.
    2. Three diff in how the audience/performers behaves compared to Khalid:
    The performers have a conductor that’s conducting them. The audience is silent and are not moving, they are just watching the performers unlike with Khalid. Additionally, the performers are not singing or dancing, they are playing instruments and sitting. Lasly, they have set up notes that they follow to perform, as opposed to Khalid who was able to improvise more and add in whatever melodies he wanted while performing at Coachella.
    3. One similarity and one diff between Beethoven symphony and string quartet:
    One similarity is that both the audiences are sitting and watching the performers and in both cases the performers are following notes. One difference is that the string quartet is facing the audience and has a lot less performers than Beethoven, whereas Beethoven has a mix of some performers facing the audience and other performers facing away from the audience and has more performers. Beethoven also had a conductor which the string quartet did not.

Beethoven also had a conductor which the string quartet did not.

    • I like how you described the difference between Khalid’s concert and the other concert noticing the sound the audience makes. In the concert hall performance, the audience is not making any sound. But in Khalid’s concert, the audience were free to cheer and clap if they wanted to. Khalid was also interactive with them.

  14. 1. How is the audience behaving? What about the performers?

    The audience is moving to the music while the performers are also doing the same, but the performers are choreographed. The song is not upbeat at all which makes it hard for people to dance to, but people were still feeling the music beat. Amongst the performers there are dancers and musicians. They are background to the main performer who is Khalid.

    2. Come up with 3 differences in how the audience and/or performers are behaving, compared to the Khalid concert.

    (1) The audience are all sitting down unlike in the Khalid concert where everyone is standing and some are dancing to the music. (2) This concert has a conductor which Khalid’s concert does not. (3) There is no one “performer” like in Khalid’s concert. Every one in the orchestra is a performer. Although Khalid has backup dancers and a band that plays the music, the main “star” is Khalid. In this other concert, there is no “star” but a collective group of people.

    3. Considering the space, audience, and performers, come up with one similarity and one difference.

    One similarity is that both concerts are composed of string instruments. They are both taking place in a concert hall where the audience members are seated and facing the performers. One difference is that the quartet… has just 4 performers. The Beethoven concert was composed of a full on orchestra. It also had a composer who kept the beat for all the performers unlike the string quartet performance.

  15. 1. How is the audience behaving? What about the performers?

    The audience is singing along, dancing too, and recording Khalid’s performance. They are enjoying his presence on stage, even though their actions may not show it due to them recording the show, not experiencing it firsthand. The performers, Khalid, and the dancers are having a great time. They are happy, grooving, and interacting with other people, the audience, Khalid, or other dancers.

    2. The audience difference between the Khalid concert and the symphony is that Khalid is more danceable, have more fun, and the audience interacts more. Some similarities are that all eyes are on both performers, the audiences are both entertained, and that all people in both audiences are there for the music.

    3. The difference between the quartet and Beethoven’s music is that the quartet has only 4 instruments, while the symphony has dozens of instruments and the symphony had a conductor to keep everybody on track, unlike the quartet which relied on everybody to keep track. Some similarities between these two were that they were both performed in a concert hall, for an audience, for entertainment, and both of the music is played from centuries ago.

    • I liked how you included that distinction that even though people record performances they still are enjoying the performance. Since there are different expectations for how the performers perform in these situations, the audience also has different ways to enjoy a performance too.

    • I agree I think that in both performances the audience is entertained even though Khalids performance is more lively. It has a lot to do with the type of concert that it is. I like how you mentioned the conductor in the symphony that was something that I didn’t notice at first.

  16. Khalid’s performance at Coachella:
    1. How is the audience behaving? What are they doing?
    – People are waving their hands and body to the beat of the music.
    – They are singing along with the performer.
    – Recording performances on their phones.
    2. What about the performers?
    – Khalid interacts with the audience, dancers, and stage crew who are holding cameras
    – The dancers move around everywhere, they don’t just stay at their spot on stage.

    Symphony No. 5, Beethoven
    1. Come up with 3 differences in how the audience and/or performers are behaving, compared to Khalid’s Concert.
    – In the symphony orchestra, people are still and listening to the performers quietly.
    – The audience and performers are far away from each other in the symphony orchestra.
    – The performers remain seated as they perform and wear formal black attire, instead of flashy or casual clothing.

    Haydn, String Quartet in E -flat major, “Joke”
    1. Considering the space, audience, and performers, come up with one similarity and one difference.
    – Similarity: Both audiences are quiet and still.
    – Difference: The string quartet is more intimate than the symphony orchestra since the distance between the audience and performers is closer.

    • I like how you mentioned the stage crew members because they also add an important part to this because these professionals work backstage during performances to keep the show running smoothly and safely. Without them, all this wouldn’t have been possible, so just showing how Khalid interacts with them and shows their importance during his concert is a key to notice. Also, I like how you mentioned that they wore specifically black attire. When I wrote professional, I didn’t really specifically mention the color or the type, so this creates a specific picture in the head and allows to create the image of how the scene or setting actually look.

  17. 1) The audience in Khalids performance were singing along and moving to the music. They had their phone out recording the performance.
    2) Khalid was singing and dancing in the performance. He was interacting with the dancers and fans by letting them sing some parts of the song. He also walked around to different parts of the stage. The dancers were dancing all around the stage.
    3) The difference between the performers, is that in the symphony they are very in-sync and structured. Khalid was very playful and free spirited. He even talked to a fan in the middle of the performance. The audience in Khalids performance were very free spirited but the symphony audience was serious. They were all silent and sitting down in one place.
    4) The similarities are that the audience in both performance are calm and quiet. The performers are very serious in both performances. A difference is in the amount of performers they are less performers in the Hayden string quartet.

  18. How is the audience behaving? What are they doing?
    The audience is waving their hands and singing along especially with the most iconic parts of the song like when he sang the lyric “need my location” the audience was in sync with him singing along. There were some people recording the concert and people were dancing and singing. They are all behaving well, not constantly screaming, paying attention to the lyrics, and gave applause at the end.

    What about the performers?
    The performers are dancing and playing the instruments to the beat. There were some performers that changed positions every now and then, going behind the board and one coming out of the car. Some exotically dancing and frantically moving as well. Khalid is just singing with some simple hand gestures and movements.

    Differences
    In Khalid’s performance, it was more chill and nonchalant group whereas, in Ludwig van Beethoven’s Symphony, it was very professional, everyone was wearing uniform, and sitting down upright. It was more formal than Khalid’s performance and chaotic.

    • I agree the performances were very different from each other. Kahlid’s performance was very easy going and chill; whereas the other performance was very intense and delivered in a very professional manner.

  19. How the audience behaving ? What are they doing?
    The audience is recording the performance, waving their hands around and bopping their heads along while Khalid performs.

    What about the performers?
    Khalid is walking around the stage. He is pacing back and fourth , waving his arms around, pointing to the crowd. He at one point dances with one of the dancers on stage. He starts talking in the middle of singing. He keeps interacting with his backup dancers.

    Three differences between the performances
    – no one in audience is recording performance with phone
    – No one in audience is swaying along and using their arms to bop along to the sound
    – None of the performers ever stop performing to talk or dance

  20. How is the audience behaving? What are they doing?
    The audience is singing along with the singer, filling in between the lyrics. They also are waving their hands, recording and moving with the beat.

    What about the performer?
    Khalid is walking around the stage, pausing in between to let the audience join in to sing along. He is doing a lot of hand gestures, communicating with the dancers, the band and the audience to create a more engaging experience. There’s also a lot of improvisation going on.

    Differences between the performances
    -The performers aren’t really trying to engage with the audience
    – The environment is very intense whereas in Khalid’s concert it is very chill and easy going.
    The audience is very attentive, no one is speaking just listening very attentively.
    – Music is instrumental, according to a script; there is no improvisation.

  21. Lecture Part 3

    One similarity & one difference considering the space, audience, and performers:

    One similarity in terms of the space, it takes place also in a concert hall, with audience members sitting down.
    One difference is that it is a small group of performers playing the instruments rather than a whole orchestra.

  22. How is the audience behaving? What are they doing?
    The audience is interactive, singing along with Khalid. The audience is also waving their hands and showing the most activity during the chorus of the song. This audience pays attention to the lyrics and music rather than being starstruck and screaming distracting from the songs. Most people were singing, dancing, and recording videos on their phones.

    What about the performers?
    Khalid maximum movement are hand gestures and simple movements. The people who do the most changing positions and intense dancing are the other performers. Even those playing instruments are moving to the beat of the music.

    Differences
    In Beethoven’s Symphony, the main focus was put on the sound of the music and less on the performers. The performers dressed in uniform and did not make eye catching movements. On the other hand Khalids performance was less formal and uniform, allowing for more creativity and fun to be shown.

  23. How is the audience behaving? What are they doing?
    When the audience notices that Khalid is about to sing, they all start recording him and they move to the beats of the music. For example, they were moving their body, hands and head to the beats of the music. Some people were singing along with the music because it was a known song for those who listen to his music. At the end of the song, I noticed the audience was going crazy and cheered a lot. They all were behaving like themselves which means they were all behaving normal and seemed to be enjoying every part of it.

    What about the performers?
    When Khalid started singing, he was walking around the stage. He was making sure that the audience was engaged and actually enjoying it. There was a dancer who was wearing pink and she started dancing on him and making the audience cheer more. Towards the ending, the audience sings along with Khalid even more.

    Three differences in how the audience and/or performers are behaving compared to the Khalid concert:
    In the symphony orchestra, the audience is sitting quietly and listening/watching the performers, whereas in the Khalid concert, they are jumping around/singing along.
    In the symphony orchestra, people were more dressed like professionals and in the Khalid concert, the audience and the performers were free to wear whatever they chose to wear and not have any judgment for looking different.
    In the symphony orchestra, nobody has their phone out or recording from the audience, while in khalid concert, majority of the people have their phone out and are recording the concert and screaming while recording.

    Considering the space, audience, and performers, come up with one similarity and one difference.
    The similarities are that the audience in both performances are serious and calm. They are also very quiet, so you can see how focused they are. Also, it was both taking place in a concert hall location. The difference would be the amount of performers that are shown. There are less performers in the Hayden string quartet.

  24. 1. How is the audience behaving? What are they doing?
    The audience seems to be vibing with Khalid as he dances and sings across the stage. You can see people bopping their heads to the rhythm of the song while singing along with him as well.

    2. What about the performers
    The performers also seem to be enjoying themselves as Khalid is performing. You could even see one of them like twerking on him while he sings. They are dancing very powerfully and amazingly with the songs beat and rhythm. For Khalid himself, he is definitely giving off good energy which makes the audience feel more hyped.

    3. Differences
    One difference from the audience is none of them look like they are vibing or having fun. They are just watching them perform with no expressions on their face. Another difference is that they are very much more mannered and civilized than the people at coachella. They seem more posh and mature. Lastly, another difference is they are not on their phones or have any other distractions. They are just watching the performance.
    One difference between the performers is that they are much more calm and in one place than Khalid. Khalid was all over the place when he was performing while they were just sitting in one place. Another difference is the people playing the instruments are only paying attention to the conductor, while with Khalid you could see he was paying a lot of attention to his fans and audience. The last difference is these performers are more focused on themselves and the conductor rather than the audience, while you could see Khalid constantly talking to his fans and checking to see if they are having fun and enjoying the show.

    4. One difference and similarity
    One difference between the Joke and Beethoven is that they don’t have a conductor in the front telling them what to do, instead they are going at their own pace and looking at each other to match their beat. One similarity is that both only pay attention to themselves and their music sheets. Usually you would think performers would pay attention to the audience but they don’t.

    • I like how you mentioned the difference in how individualistic the approach of the performers was with the conductor. They seem concentrated in the music and themselves rather than the audience. One thing we can keep in mind is about how the expectations for each concert was fulfilled, each concert was exactly how you expect it to be.

  25. How is the audience behaving? What are they doing?
    The audience is very excited for the song and they are singing along and dancing. They are recording on their phones and bobbing their heads. They are also waving their hands along with the song.

    What about the performers
    The performers are dancing along with the song and are accompanying the performer. They help keep everyone entertained.

    Three difference between the two performances
    Three differences between the two was that the performers look more serious. I didn’t see anyone smiling. Another difference I saw was musicians had sheets to tell them all the cues. The last difference is for Khalid’s performance, the audience was involved with the performance while in the second one the audience is sitting down.

  26. Music in Concert Video #1
    1. How it the audience behaving? What are they doing?

    The performers are swaying in a similar movement. This is a very calm and collected song. The audience has their hands up moving simultaneously in the same direction.

    2. What about the performers?

    Khalid is presented in a red sweater and light blue jeans. He walks back and forth throughout the stage. Smiling and interacting with the audience as well as having interactions with a female dancer wearing a pink sweat suit. During his performance the the performer is very lax and occasionally uses curse words to communicate with his audience.

    3. Come up with three difference in how the audience and or/performers are behaving, compared to the Khalid concert.

    a. One major difference is in the environment. The environment and behavior play hand and hand when analyzing any performance. The orchestra is very precise and on beat.
    b. The head of the orchestra is very serious and stern with every movement and gesture as he knows the placements of his hands and body is looked at to dictate the tempo of the piece.
    c. The members in the audience appear to be still in the background and not engaging with the orchestras and vice-versa the orchestra isn’t engaging with the audience.

    1. Considering the space, audience, and performers, come up with one similarity and one difference.
    When looking at both pieces it is evident that they have many similarities. One of them being their location. Both Beethoven’s and the Quartet are being performed in a concert hall where the audience and the performers are facing one another. The major difference between the two Is the size in group. The quartet is composed of 4 members while Beethoven is accompanied by a whole Orchestra who follows the conductor.

  27. Response to 3rd video: The difference being that a Chamber orchestra has only 4 instruments: 2 violins, 1 viola, and 1 cello. They don’t have a conductor so they rely on each other and go off on movement, breathing, and the first violin gestures. They are all still wearing concert black and playing in a proper posture.

  28. 1. How is the audience behaving? What are they doing?

    The audience is waving their hands and singing along with Khalid. They are constantly filming with their phones but do a good job reacting to what he is doing.

    2. What about the performers?

    The performer is singing and dancing as well as interacting with the audience. Overall vibing and speaking with his fans.

    3. Come up with three differences in how the audience and/or performers are behaving, compared to the Khalid concert

    The audience is extremely quiet and sitting listening to the performance
    The performers are directly reading from a sheet and looking for perfection
    The conductor is guiding the performers or telling them what to do.

    4. Differences

    Similarity:
    They still read off the sheet and are very concentrated

    Difference:
    There is no conductor instead they seem to be looking at each other, the concert hall also seems smaller

  29. 1.how is the audience behaving?what are they doing?
    -the audience is singing along to the song and along with some who are recording on their phone and swaying their hands side to side.
    2. What about the performers?
    -Khalid is singing to his song walking around stage while doing slow movements to the song, smiling and interacting with the audience and the dancers as well.
    3. Differences in audience/performer behavior of Symphony orchestra from The Khalid concert
    -the performers are very focused
    – audience is quiet and still
    -everything is planned out
    4. Considering the space, audience, and performers, come up with on similarity and one difference.
    -The difference to the orchestra is the number of performers on stage and its the small space in between the audience and stage
    -one similarity would be that the audience is still in one place and very to themselves.

  30. 1. How is the audience behaving? What are they doing?

    The audience is swaying their arms to the beat of the song. Some audience members are recording the performance with their phones and are singing along with Khalid.

    2. What about the performers?

    In the video, Khalid is singing with the audience, he seems to be enjoying the vibe of the performance. Also, Khalid is seen to be dancing with another performer.

    3. One Difference is the performers appear to be serious about their role. Another difference is that the audience are all sitting quietly watching the performance. In this concert, the performers are not as interactive with the audience.

  31. How is the audience behaving?
    The audience for the Khalid performance is singing along, recording, and waving their hands along with the music.
    What about the performers?
    He is dancing around on stage interacting with the audience. Its more informal.
    Differences:
    One is that the orchestra is sat down as well as the audience
    Another is for the orchestra the audience is quiet
    Another is the use of music sheets

  32. 1) How the audience is behaving/ what the performer is doing
    – The audience is standing, and some people are on their phone while others are just swaying their hands and listening, singing along and enjoying the live music. Khalid, the performer was walking/ dancing back and forth along the stage while singing his song into the microphone. He was very engaging with his body language to capture the audience’s attention, as well as having a big smile on his face. Also, at the end of the song the audience began to yell and clap as the song came to an end.
    2) Three differences between the two performances
    – Unlike the Khalid concert the audience is sitting and not standing and also no one seems to have their phone out to record the concert. The performers are also sitting unlike Khalid who was dancing around the stage. The orchestra is focused on one person being the conductor and had a more serious expression on their face while Khalid was looking out to the tons of people watching him in the audience. Also, Khalid was only looking at the audience while the instrumentalist had sheet music in front of them to play the music off of.
