FAO CAA Year 1: Story / Soundscapes - Blog Submission Criteria 12/03/2019 @ 1pm

This is a reminder that you're submitting your Soundscape project to your blog only on Tuesday 12th March by 1pm.  Your submission post should be labelled accordingly: Blog submission - Soundscape.  

Your submission post should only include the following:

Your Soundscapes x 3

Your 'Sonic Concept' documentation (i.e. choose a method by which you can best articulate the ideas driving the design of each soundscape as a response to the image that inspired it; it might be a short written statement of intent, a 'word cloud' or text combined with supporting influence maps... Be imaginative and communicative).

For your reference - the requirements of the brief: 

You are asked to produce 3 x 30 second soundscapes in response to the images allocated to you at the briefing, which should demonstrate clearly your understanding of the principles of sound design and the ways in which its careful consideration can enrich time-based narrative structures effectively. 

Important: No pre-recorded SFX or music to be used in the creation of your soundscapes.

You are asked to produce a comprehensive blog archiving and annotating your creative development during the duration of the project. You should use the blog to reflect critically upon your own creative practice and the wider cultural and thematic context of the unit.

Your blog must include:

1) Your three 30 second soundscapes.

2) All original SFX + description.

3) All post-produced SFX + description.

4) Your ‘Sonic Concept’ publication (as Scribd Presentation)

5) Your Sound Designer Profile (as Scribd Presentation)

6) All Adobe Audition exercises.

7) Your final submission must include a short reflective statement. A reflective statement is a statement in which the student considers their experience of a project. Reflective statements are used to understand past events, learn lessons and identify best practice.

Please organise your project work by adding a 'Soundscape' label to all relevant blog posts. This will ensure I'm able to group and segregate your Soundscape submission for purposes of assessment.

Remember - I am actively looking for evidence you've 'gone beyond the four walls of your room' in regards to your harvesting of sound effects.  The challenge of this project asks you to embrace your role as 'explorers of sound' and as 'magical listeners'.  Don't disappoint!

This needs to be you!
