reflection and feedback of clock

              received my feedback by asking friends on WhatsApp and in class. Some of the feedback I received were:

  • Clock is very simple. Should add more detail.
  • Clock should be made with layered acrylic. IE: Star one layer, base one layer

I successfully satisfied the design specifications by using the correct file name, the correct colours to color in the different lines, and correctly sized the clock itself. I also stated the wood’s thickness.

the constructive feedbacks i got were that my clock is simple, steady and portable. but if I wanted to improve my clock I would spend more time on the details and think of better ways to make it able to stand or hang.

Ukulele Song – I’m your (your choice )

 

In my submission, I changed the strumming pattern to make it easier for my level, I also changed the position of the drums and I didn’t do the background singing and duets from the original. some of the parts singing I didn’t do because my voice can’t be so high or low or I just couldn’t sing it with out making it weird. I also made the song slower so I can do the strumming easier.

when I was in the classes, it taught me how to use garageband’s drums, how to edit the audio and told me that if I sing, I need to use ear phones so there will not be any background noise. I also use youtube to listen to what the strumming sounds like so it will be easier to do since I know what it sounds like. the classes also gave time to learn to use it myself so it will be more fun and challenging.
I did the singing first so it is easier to do the strumming later, then I did the drum audio and at the end I did the ukulele strumming.

Ukulele submission – amazing grace

Discuss your Ukulele recording. Items to discuss include: timing, note accuracy, rhythm accuracy. 
           when I was recording I often forget what note was next, and when I go outside the recording room I remember back everything. when I am recording, my ukulele gets out of tone easily. In my opinion the note G are the easiest because it doesn’t need me to hold any stings.
Discuss your overall understanding of Garageband and its processes. Items to discuss include: editing, timing, arranging, etc. How has your skill at Garageband impacted your song?
          I understand the basic of GarageBand about editing is not that good. I often make the audio separated to far and when I sing I often get voice cracks and my timing is also pretty bad.
