Soundscapes from the snowscape called Ghent!

Hi there!

 

Today we started our 2nd session with watching some short videos about Foley (Foley is the reproduction of everyday sound effects which are added in post production to enhance the quality of audio for films, television, etc…). We were all amazed to see that so much things we “hear” coming from the screen are actually finely tailored, handmade sounds. And most of the times it’s all made with very normal objects!

 

Then we listened to the mySounds from different schools. We thought we recognized a book, a marble rolling over a table, a plastic bottle, and much more. We were surprised to hear that the “cricket object” from our partner school IDES was very similar to a sound we made the day before. Nice!

 

 

We ended with the creations of 2 soundscapes with the mySounds from our Parisian friends. We had a lot of fun. The sounds coming from the dog toys were quite popular. When we heard it for the first time the whole class started laughing.

 

 

Hear you all on Thursday! We look forward to listening to the soundscapes in the classroom!

    Hello Ghent ..
    we listened to your soundscapes made with our objects brought from home today. Thank you.
    The first one, which featured the squeaky dog toys made everyone laugh out loud. The general conclusion was that it sounded as though you had a lot of fun making it !

    The second piece which was longer, made us think of everyone working away in the same space, but closed off in their own little world.

    Bye for now :)

    funny compositions, they sounded like killing little pigs with a saw, which is rather painful, but I had to laugh ;-)
