Unit 14 (3ESO) Keyboards

KEYBOARDS

UNIT 14 DAY 1 - Characteristics of the Keyboards.

   

Questionnaire (Unit 14 Day 1 - Fifty-Third Lecture of 3ESO)

What characterizes keyboard instruments?
    Indirectly produce sound.

 Keyboards related to the families of instruments.
    The celesta is a idiófono, piano and string instruments are the key, a wind instrument, the organ and electronic keyboards are electrophones. Missing an membranophone.

Keyboard instruments typically produce sound indirectly, all of polyphonic and harmonic with a range of heights that far exceeds that of other instruments of the orchestra.

UNIT 14 DAY 2 - Organ, Harpsichord, Piano and Celesta.

   

Questionnaire (Unit 14 Day 2 - Fifty-Fourth Lecture of 3ESO)

 Parts of an organ.
    The console consists of the keyboard and pedals, the power system with the bellows and tubes, one for each note in each record.

 Difference between piano, harpsichord and celesta.
    The piano and strings have the key, but the first hit and the second the plucks, while the percute celesta on sheets.

The organ (Pipe Organ) is one of the oldest instruments keyboard. In Rome we find hydraulic components which use water to produce the notes, but it is in the Renaissance when it becomes an important instrument.

Piano, celesta key and have a keyboard and a similar way, but the material and shape of what changes excite sound. Keyboards continue to evolve and be considered a computer and keyboard instrument.

UNIT 14 DAY 3 - Electric keyboards and Synths.

   

Questionnaire (Unit 14 Day 3 - Fifty-Fifth Lecture of 3ESO)

Why keyboards are the most widely spread way to access electronic sounds?
    Because of the indirect way of giving instructions to a console.

 The first synth with keyboard..
    It was created in 1967
    

Electric instruments began without recognizable interpretation systems like Martenot waves, but soon saw that keyboards were the best way to access sounds. There arose organs and electric pianos.

UNIT 14 DAY 4 - Future Keyboards. 

   

Questionnaire (Unit 14 Day 4 - Fifty-Sixth Lecture of 3ESO)

Future Keyboards.
    They must take the form of digital screens and touch-pads to become accurate in the new era of digital sound.


Computers have an alphanumeric keyboard to type and schedule. Again a method of instructing indirectly serves to create music. Touchscreens and new sensitivities have created pressure keyboards that Iran joining existing instruments with greater or lesser success.
