Seeing musical form: “Go or Go Ahead”

May 1, 2006

This is a wave form representation of Rufus Wainwright’s “Go or Go Ahead.” Without even hearing the music, one can see a three part song: the first, a long, quiet section that appears to be in three sections, with the third being the loudest, leading into the next section; the second part a violently contrasting section that tapers suddenly at the end, and a third part that resembles, and is likely bigger than part two. Now, listen to the song and see whether you can “hear” this overall shape.
