a visible object. Both works hand in hand as originates from the brain to informational objects. Non-

Expressionism usually links emotional between the viewer and artwork. Impressionism music focuses
on conveying the moods and emotions of the subject aroused rather than detailed tone picture, this is
mostly represented by short, lyrical pieces. Among the composers of this style was Debussy who had a
great profile of impressionism between (1890-1920). Expressionism was a feature of the high level of
dissonance with extreme contrasts of dynamics and constant texture changes.
This style is characterized by melodies and harmonies with leaps, a remarkable icon in this
style was Arnold Schoenberg. Primitivism too employed use of melodic and harmonic counters in
their styles, it involved the composition of cultural affairs by untrained personnel in a performance like
the songs of seasonal work and duties. A central figure in this style is Bartoks Mikrokosmos- Songs
