The following three assignments are due for tomorrow (May 14).

Copy and Paste the main assignment page the student creates link under this post in the “Leave a Reply” section with the student’s name, time, week, day, date, and topic title at the beginning of the post (Example: John Doe, 11:25pm, Week 1 Day 3 April 28, Understanding the DAW). Remember you can link all assignment themes to the “Daily Meds Topic” of choice to help aid in finding a source of inspiration that is best for your recording and video needs. The Daily Meds Workbook can be found at (https://musicaldailymeds.wordpress.com/the-workbook/). The following are due for Friday to present to the class. 

A. Sonic “Tool Kits” for Friday. (There should be roughly 15 sounds and more)

B. Ford Ideas finished to present for Friday. This includes “Vine” videos.

C. Daniel Lanois “Flesh and Machine” song traced and roughed out for Friday.

1. Get your 16th personal blog up and posted. The students writings for the remainder of the course will be based on all four sections “Creative Word, Creative Experiment, Daily Dose and Daily Action” sections from the Daily Meds workbook (found under the tab “The Workbook” at https://musicaldailymeds.wordpress.com). Students are to write on ALL four sections. These 45 personal blogs need to be roughly a half a page long (100 words). The main objective in doing these blogs is getting the students thinking more creatively around audio creation and in deeper sonic levels in the students daily lives. The more you blog, the deeper you will get and in turn the better your ears will become.

2. Record 1 recording/video for each day before next class using the phone and/or recording software you have. The recordings the students do for the remainder of the course will be based on the “Creative Word and/or Creative Experiment” sections from the Daily Meds workbook (found under the tab “The Workbook” at https://musicaldailymeds.wordpress.com). Also remember to build your “Sonic Tool Kit” composed from the “Six Families of Sound” with these daily create recordings https://introtoaudio.wordpress.com/sonic-arts-breakdown/). Remember that the recordings you conduct do not have to be long. This exercise is about getting experience practicing recording getting used to working with a single microphone and getting the audio into a DAW. Also post your recording to your Soundcloud account, then that Soundcloud link to your WordPress blog account and finally to the class WordPress blog under this post in the “leave a comment” section. Please label all recordings in Soundcloud and WordPress with time, date and topic. To help get you started in the first week here is a link (http://www.noisejockey.net/blog/category/nature-recording/) and (www.makenoisemakemusic.wordpress.com) to inspire some creative outcomes.

3. Turning in your Ford Idea and open Presentations “ideas” on the topic the “Ford Marketing Campaign” or present your rough ideas for your Electroacoustic 4 track EP. Write out 1- 3 concepts a day on the topic and have the ideas/concepts posted for next class. There is no set total to be turned but something should be turned in by the next day on your blog before next class. Remember to post your “ideas” on your blog then copy and paste the link under this post in the “leave a comment” section.
