/CWS4/ – Midterm Proposal

I didn’t expect it would be an in-class presentation, so I first came up with this idea of using the sounds created by playing with iron swings to make musical pieces. Then I get another idea and I think it is more practical — to place different matters such as water, wine, jelly and etc. into glass bottles to create a scale of musical tones (12 in total). And play with it! The tones will be measured by frequencies.



My first idea:
Project – Swing the Sounds
Location – the park beside 18th Ave (N train)
Project Outcome
  1. A documentation of both visual and audio recording [Music Video]
  2. Musical pieces made up of the audio recording samples
Project Length – 15min maximum
Project Content
Improvise with swings by identifying the tunes of the environmental sounds
Sound Sources
A.    Environmental Soundscape
1. scratch the iron, play the swings (visualized soundtracks) to make constant sounds in different frequencies;
2. train pass by sounds;
3. other manual sounds as drum beat;
4. other unexpected environmental sounds;
B.    Musical Soundscape
 1. Handmade one-string instrument;
 2. Multiple vocals;
 3. Acoustic guitar (maybe)
 4. ….
