This term I created a soundscape using garageband to accompany my poetic memoir. The soundscape helps to evoke the emotions I feel in that place, doing things with my special people.
I learnt that soundscapes create emotions. These are the instruments I used: tambourine, drummer, drums, shaker, guitar. I chose the tambourine because I wanted it to sound happy, I used the drummer to keep the rhythm. I used the drum to keep the beat. I used the shakers to make the wind. My learning is relational because I can use musical elements to create the intended mood or emotion to support a story, poem or picture.
My next step is to teach others to create music showing mood/emotion.
