Things I do in BCT
Things I do in BCT
visual sound sub project
was full of experimentation and thinking of ways in how to structure the 1-5min piece of experimental music. Not sure exactly what to base the piece on.. I was thinking of having the recorded noises at the beginning then it progressed into more experimentations of those sounds, being digitally edited.
further in the day:
Theme… Clash of natural and electronic noises… Progress into experimental noises.
Much like the collage project, where we cut n pasted images together then progressed into a more edited piece where it all merges and overlays.
then later on:
mixed sounds all together, where there are moments where a juxtaposition is created with the digitally edited sounds and more realistic noises.
Day 3 of Sound as a project and day one of actually working with sound,
Went out in the wider world from our level11 room and ventured into the unknown… Not particularly used to working with sound but this project is just another learning experience in the BCT. :)
Whilst field recording, the wider world is actually very loud and hard to isolate just one noise. Which would be suitable to manipulate for the compilation of sound.
Tested the visual ANS and had some fun working with the program. There are multiple aspects of it which produce a variety of noises, and each image makes unique sounds.
After doing the 1st sub project of making collages, it’s easy to see where the technique of cutting something up to produce something else will be useful.
Slide for G,
So, where to begin, adjusting to UNI has been pretty easy. Though I‘m not loving the 5.30 wake up to catch a 2hour bus just to get here. It becomes tiresome and once I get back home I kind of loose all motivation to do any work. I guess its the price you pay living with parents. I love the studio environment and the range of disciplines we get to try. It really opens the world up to the possibilities, and I am interested in a whole bunch of new technology, e.g. the tablet that can draw in 3 dimensions. Its crazy but being with a whole lot of people who have a large list of similar interests to you opens up the connection train and you hear about all these cool things. this is why I endure the 2hr/4hr a day bus travel.
Programing has been a bit of a struggle, on how precise everything has to be and thinking of how things will work if you break them down to the basics, is just as confusing. Then you throw in a bit of math and arrghhh, I’m lost again. I think i don’t personally like it because of how exact you have to be. Maybe its just Java Script.
This paper has actually been very confusing; it’s been so vague that I have been kind of lost through the majority of it. In the end I done the video and the reflective blog posts, I have just got no idea on what aspect you want us to focus on or are we meant to get creative in our delivery? I feel like that for a lot of this course, vague is good but are we meant to jump into a rap for the delivery of this blog.
Its good though having so much creative freedom as we can incorporate anything we want into each studio project. I think maybe I have to be a little more extreme with this and take my ideas to the next step. I feel my development of ideas isn’t as strong as it could due to me having periods of un-productivity.
Since doing the video, three projects have been done and I find teamwork helps the process. The studio has shown that creativity is extremely diverse and there is no structure to it.
A few other pages from my vernissage booklet, a lil disappointed in how the conversion from indesign to pdf cutout bits of the titles, and I feel its my own fault for leaving it to the last minute to print/ also finish my actually designing of the booklet. I once again left it late to do the work and time got away.
So i kind of personally feel i failed my vernissage with my Intent to work on presentation, i like the booklet idea but after looking back at it when i finished, around 7, a poster would have been nice to compliment it with.
So my priority is going to be time management!! over the holidays I’m going to have to think of ways to keep me unto date with working in the time frame.
Working with incorporating the simplistic design for the overall booklet but still keeping the identity of Game of FIIk, proving a bit of a challenge to keep the right balance between them.
Though i feel with having the simplistic style its more versatile with the other projects
Am thinking now I’m on tumblr… slightly away from the editing screen, that i need to bring a bit of the texture into the bottom 2 pages.. hmmmmmmm
contents page design, for the overall look i want a clean simple layout that plays with size, shape and white negative space.
