music motif


Music Is Good....

a: Music motif ~
b: a hook

What: "But there is another element related to the hook, called the motif. Like the hook, a motif is a short, repeated idea. But while a hook tends to repeat the same way each time, and is very noticeable, a motif serves as a starting point - a building block - for other ideas that appear in a song, and does its work mainly in the background. Think of a motif as being similar to a certain shade of green that's used as the main wall colour in the kitchen, but also serves as the colour of the mat in the bathroom."

METAMIA is a free database of analogy and metaphor. Anyone can contribute or search. The subject matter can be anything. Science is popular, but poetry is encouraged. The goal is to integrate our fluid muses with the stark literalism of a relational database. Metamia is like a girdle for your muses, a cognitive girdle.
