Title: Fanfares
Authors: Mathew, Nicholas
Keywords: metacommentary
Issue Date: 2003
Description: A winner of the Knight Award for Writing Exercises, this work originates from Music 111, Sound, Sense, and Ideas: Beethoven and Today's Music. Designed primarily as in-class work, the four exercises focus on the word (e.g. "however"), phrase (e.g. "on the one hand"), or grammatical formulation (e.g. "given X, therefore Y") that signals the direction of an argument. Hence, fanfares can include everything from the humble colon to formulations such as "and this is the very crux of the matter." 8 page pdf
