HELLO PEOPLE WELCOME TO MY BLOG POST !
I will post more different posts here !!!
How well did you communicate your experience as a Hong Konger?
We communicated our experience as a Hong Konger through Claudia and Cindy’s poem. Their poems are about the pollutions in Hong Kong and I think our perspectives are well delivered through the artwork on canvas that Claudia and Cindy created. The acrylic on canvas is a view of mountains, sea, and sky of Hong Kong. When you look closely into the painting, you can see the dirty parts of Hong Kong, and the pollutions that we, humans have made.
How would you describe your personal success as an interdisciplinary learner? *
The music that I made is more of a slower edm music with sounds of HK mixed into the track. I decided to create a song that is more slow paced to show that the pollution in Hong kong in slowly increasing and is becoming more and more dangerous for the world.
I think my group mates and I started to relate different subjects and things that we learned in school together to create something better and new. We combined our knowledge from different aspects that we learned from school for example, we read our english poems over and over again to see which one would convey all of our perspectives well and continued to work from there.
What were the limitations of the interdisciplinary unit? Give specific examples… *
During the interdisciplinary unit, it took us quite a while to figure out what we were going to set our goals for since we didn’t where to start off first. We didn’t accomplish much in the first session because we didn’t know what to do with our ideas all over the places and sources coming from all different places.

|What are your Personal Goals and Intention of this project?|
|We are going to do a palette knife painting of the Hong Kong sea and recording a timelapse of our project and create some music to go over the time lapse. Since Hong Kong is surrounded water and we hope to capture the beauty of Hong Kong and express it with something tangible. We hope to convey the feeling of amazement and wonder we both see when we see Hong Kong’s scenery and we hope that the audience can understand how beautiful Hong Kong is Because Hongkongers are very busy and they always rush everywhere, we hope to encourage the audience to slow down and appreciate Hong Kong like we do. Desiree will have create the 2 minute long audio track while Claudia and Cindy will work on the final artwork.|
|Hows does this project connect to your English Poem of choice?|
|Both poems include a lot of imagery and descriptions so having a visual component helps the audience envision what the poem is trying to describe. Cindy’s poem describes the beautiful sunsets of Hong Kong and Claudia’s poem talks about the pollution in Hong Kong’s oceans and harbours. With the painting of the sunset overlooking the ocean, we want the audience to first read our poems and envision what they read and after we show our final artwork. Both our poems are very descriptive and look at Hong Kong at a positive way and because there is a motif of painting/photo in Claudia’s poem, we choose a picture as our media of choice|

|Artwork will be presented outside the LLACAll live presentations and videos will be on the LLAC stage.|
This is my final product:
Sounds of CDNIS – Criteria Di
This is the final product of my Sounds of CDNIS:
This is my screencast for all four of my sounds and what it sounds like after I added different plugins. I also mentioned which two instruments that I am going to use for my software instruments.
This is my Software Instrument creation based on the song “Amazing Grace”
I chose amazing grace because I made a track with a ukulele and drums on GarageBand last year. I wanted to recreate the same song but with software instruments and see how big of a difference there is.
