Blog #2 Week 2!!

Project work and confidence!project%20management

With multiple projects happening this Trimester it is very important to document the progression of tasks. This will also correspond with locking in dates for various tasks especially studio time and hiring of gear for doing interviews.

Our podcast team have a view to record as soon as possible in the big Audient space and then mix in the Neve room (Week 9) and also add any extra parts if needed. We think it could be a rush if we waited until week 9 to start recording the music. The group is very confident in getting the interviews done within the next week or so. Our team set up Trello in week 1 and have been active in communication and updates.

For the post production project the group have recorded all the dialog and we will be starting foley next week. We may also have music and atmos ready for that session too which puts us in a great position.

I personally feel confident that all the required tasks will be completed for the due date/s. The key will be communication within each group, time management and project management. If an assigned task cannot be completed by a set date then it will be very important that the group member doing the task speaks up so that other members can help accomplish the task.

Sound IS bigger than music!

om-symbol-inside-a-circle_1058-46“Sound – the sensation produced by stimulation of the organs of hearing by vibrations transmitted through the air or other medium.”

Sound can come in many forms for example, a noise, musical tone and even speech. Sound is vibrations that travel through air or via another medium and can be heard when they reach the ear.

“Om is called the sound of one hand clapping. Om is the eternal sound; Om is the sound which is there in the universe all the time. The frequency of Om is exactly the same as the frequency of earth’s rotation around its own axis.”

Music can be written or printed which means we might not necessarily hear it especially if a piece of music has been made in this way. Music needs a sound or multiple sounds to become audible music.
