Minimalism

  • -The brief history of minimalist.

Minimalism is something we take for granted. The idea that there is virtue in stripping away, that simplicity can be beautiful, and give rise to its own special kind of complexity, is one that feels as old as the world itself – but it’s relatively new.

In music in particular, minimalism was the single most important idea of the last century, the one that made possible virtually all that we now listen to and hold dear, from punk and techno to ambient and grime. Minimalism wasn’t just a movement, it was a paradigm shift: it brought about a sea change in the way that sound is made, heard and thought of.

The first half of the 20th century had seen classical music back itself into a corner. In trying to break with tradition, “serialist” composers like Arnold Schoenberg and Pierre Boulez pursued atonality and dissonance. Technically impressive, the resulting work was also incredibly ugly; radical, certainly, but unlistenable. The real revolution would come later, and would be a whole lot easier on the ears.

  • -Discuss 2 minimalist work

-The first work is Jil Sander’s collection. It has a simple silhouette and colour match.

-I don’t know exactly what is the second one, it shows minimalist interior very well. We can see everything very easy, there are enough empty place and only black and white colour are used.

 

  • -Influence on today.

Minimalist has influenced on many different part of world such as fashion, architecture, interior, house stuff even in art. Nowadays, people make something very simple and without too much colour.

  • -overall feeling

I like minimalism. Because it is not make me confuse(?). When I see some kind of minimalist, I feel comfortable. Also case of fashion, it is easy to dress up with simple style and solid colour.
