|My Great Learning Adventure||
A you probably noticed I missed session 3 but anyway lets get into it. Today was full of success. I got my notes and prezi done 2 days in advance, and I got to help Hermoine with her remix. I learned a lot more on how the amplifier works and the 3 steps required in the process of amplifying your music. I have to say, this genius hour wasn't as fun for me because when I did my remix this was all new to me. I did research like in this project, but I got to create something amazing. These were my final steps pretty much and soon I will get the link up for my prezi.
My genius hour was good today. I got some more research done, and started to work more on my prezi, not much different then yesterday and I plan to keep working tomorrow.
Finally, Genius hour has started again. This time my question is 'how does an electric guitar make sound. Honestly it has been very easy researching and learning about this. My next steps are pretty much the same as today, researching and taking notes. Hopefully by day 3 I'll be able to start to work on my prezi I'll be doing to show what I've learned, then I will put the link on this website.
Finally I'm finished my remix. All my transitions are perfect and my song choices go great with all the effects. I am really excited for Wednesday because that's when I can finally show these to my class. I worked all through recess and lunch to make everything ideal for the presentation. The 2 people that have heard my remix's think they are amazing so that just gives me more confidence. I've been looking at other people's presentation's and they all look amazing. If you don't know what they are you can go to Mrs. Middleton's website by clicking here. you can find everyone else's project's by clicking the links she has set up on the website.
Today was a lot of fun, especially because I made another remix from a song called Counting Stars by One Republic. I really like it because I can do so much with the timing and joining of different tracks. Remix's are really really easy to make and that's why I had so much time to make 2. I was sitting beside Skywalker and he said it was amazing. I didn't really have any questions today because I already knew everything from making my first remix. The next class I will be seeing if I can make the transitions a little more smooth so it doesn' really stick out. I am having so much fun with my genius hour project and I can't wait to keep working on it.
Today I got so much done today. I have picked my song; it is the theme song for battlefield 3. I also added all the dubstep effects that need to be encorperated to make a remix. I still have lots of time but I'm mostly done. I can still try to improve my remix but for now I'm done.
Today I figured out how to use my remix software. I learned how to add everything together using many tutorials. Making a remix is pretty hard. There are so many components to pay attention too which can make or brake your remix. So far this has been really fun using my software. It can be a little frustrating because i still can't figure out a good song to remix so I guess I'll have to keep looking.
Today I figured out what I need to make my remix. I need: my laptop, my stereo headphones, and a program that I can use to make my remix. Today pretty much everything went well, but I might have hit a roadblock because I need to find a program that is free or cheap so I can actually make my remix. What I will do on monday is get all the equipment I need to so I can make it a listen without disturbing anyone else. I can't wait to start on monday.
