This morning we started the last exercise, the soundscape composition.
First of all we listen to our compositions (as the students work in teams they didn’t know what the rest of them have done). Moreover, we had a look at the blog summarizing what each school has been done until now.
Secondly, the students were split in small teams and they made a sort of storyboard (without drawings and scene by scene instead of shot by shot) in which they included what sounds they will record, the distance and position of the sound source relative to the recorder, how the transitions between scenes will be, how long each scene will be, etc. We decided they are going to make sound postcards about their everyday sound life, which will contain soundscapes from their house as well as from the school.
Finally, the students started the recordings. They recorded some sounds at school and they took the recorders home. The next day each team will make one composition so we will have fourteen sound postcards.
We don’t have sounds to post today but here there are some pictures.
