我覺得我這個 Criterion B 考試可以做的更好，但是我常常不小心，所以有很多問題做錯了，但是我也有很多問題做的很好例如多選擇題。我最有問題的是文字問題因為我和多時後不明白他說什麼。我下一次要多小心和練習不知道的。
I have spent about 1 month doing this Uke project and I have chosen Eastside by Benny Blanco with Halsey and Khalid
Discuss the following skills in relation to your Ukulele song choice…
Hi. This is my Flute Assessment. There is also a metronome playing in the background.
What is the key of your tune? Time Signature? *
The key of tune is C major and the time signature is 3 and 4
What sort of rhythms are used in your song? How were they used musically? *
It starts with a G and goes up till E which is a half note, after that it slowly descend in tone and continues in this pattern for some time and goes till a G that is a 3 beat note and continues in the same pattern again, the song hits a suddenly higher note and descends till a very low note which is a half-beat and then with the same note and sound, the song ascends and has the same 2 notes D, the song continues to ascend till a very long A which is 4 beats and a rest as it’s end.
Discuss your note accuracy and rhythm accuracy in regards to your strumming and melodic playing… *
I did well on the accuracy of the rhythm but lacked accuracy in regards to strumming, I did not get many of the strumming changes on the right beat and was late for some of the note changes, I did not properly get the beats the strumming, some of it was faster and louder and some of it (most of it) was slower and much more delayed than it should have been.
What Ukulele skills have you acquired? Chords, melody, etc. *
I have learned a lot about the Melody and how to do that part of the Ukulele, and it makes the song sound a lot better, I have also learned how to put my Melody in beat with the singing I did for this assessment, one of the key things I have learned is what type of strumming and speed of the song can affect the actual song in different ways, like the Island strum, which is the one I used, it made it sound more smooth and soothing.
How did you decide your tempo to match your song and style? Did the context of the song change because of this? *
I chose 80 because it was slow enough for my taste, I think it would of sounded too weird if it was faster than I already put it, I chose this tempo also because I did not want the tempo to be too slow at the same time, I think I chose the perfect tempo for the song, since it was a slow and calm song, if it had been faster, it would lose it’s meaning.
How did you use the editing tools in Garageband? Trimming, Cutting, pasting, metronome, etc… *
I mostly used trimming for the parts that were not in beat like the Melody because that was the first recording so I made it too slow and could not say the words of the song and had to record that part again, like the strumming, did well in the end but I had to attempt 3 times to finally get it right the last time, the singing I did not need to trim or cut any of it
Discuss your recording process; recording bar at a time, chord at a time, in phrases? Did you have any concerns or issues? *
I first recorded the singing and made sure it did not sound like a dieing horse, luckily it did not, after the singing I did the melody, making sure all the different notes were correct, I did have to cut a lot because it was out of beat, for some of the melody notes I had to record separately because I kept messing up the timing and thought it would just be better to record it separately, for the strumming I chose the island strum because I thought it sounded better, for the strumming I did not really need to trim or cut it, I just had to attempt a few times to get it all right
My favorite flute player is Elisabeth Wentland she is really good and she always plays a nice melody and she is one of the only flute players I know, the other one is my flute teacher Nelson.
I have already learned the flute for around half a year and I know the simple things like notes and the beats/counts, and I really enjoy it. I will still explain how to play, clean it and put it together
For cleaning the flute usually, there is a piece of cloth and a stick-like thing that you use, all you need to do is put the corner part of the cloth put it through the hole in the stick and then wrap the cloth around it and put it through the parts of the flute, and to clean the outside there is another cloth that you use to clean and it is usually blue https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7wJiDbcw3Zs
For playing it will explain in the book and you will learn it, for B you press the top 2 buttons
I chose Matthew because I worked well with him and I had good chemistry, we worked well together but we just barely got it on the deadline. I got a 5 out of 8 but I felt like I could have done better, I had bad pronunciation skills and that ruined my score, if I had remembered how to say some of the words I would have gotten a higher score. Next time we do this I will do better and learn the words more thoroughly.
well as you can tell from the title Exhibition is over! so much work had been put into this and it is just done, it’s finished! I feel so FREE! woohoo!!! Sorry I get a little carried away doing that, so anyway, I believe that the exhibition was a good experience and I had a lot of fun doing it, there were some rude and nice and I can tell that a lot of people liked it, most of my classmates liked it cuz we did not have Chinese and we were in the library for most of the day.
in case you didn’t know my topic is light pollution and I loved it, I had a lot of people that came and I really enjoyed it. to be honest I don’t really want to do these reflections and just not think about the exhibition because it makes me want to break something so yeah (CRASH!) yeah I just broke my glass cup so I am probably going to have to end things as soon as I can but I don’t really want to leave you all hanging (although) I need to stop so I don’t break anything else so ya byeeeeeeeee!
The exhibition is in almost a week and I need to do a reflection on it because I have heard so far in CDNIS is that it is all about reflections and reflecting on everything that we do, so here it is, the BIG reflection for the exhibition.
So far in the exhibition, I have been doing well and I think that I have everything all set and I am ready to present with my good friend Matthew (who is doing Noise Pollution) I have a good feeling about this, mostly because I have everything I need to do the exhibition. I have gone through so many great things during the exhibition and I hope for the best (literally all I wrote 118 words and I don’t really know what to write so I am going to do)
After months and months of research and discovery, I believe I know a fair bit about light pollution and I believe I am now an expert! I will explain light pollution in as long of a draft as possible.
Light pollution is very different from other types of pollution, unlike air or sea pollution, light pollution is reversible and we can do something to reduce it, it is not permanent.
Light pollution is a type of pollution that can harm you in secret and not many people know about it and we are all unknowingly contributing to it. Light pollution can have many harmful in many ways, and I am going to talk about those ways today.
The first and most harmful way is your mental health, light pollution can cause high amounts of stress as you cannot sleep and are always drowsy or tired, this can also mess up your sleeping habits, and that leads to the second reason why Light pollution is so harmful, light pollution can really mess up your sleep as it can actually go through the smallest cracks in curtains and it will keep you awake.
I think that Light pollution is a very serious not many people appreciate the beauty of lights in the city but the people that are taking action are smart like me(yeah just kidding I am stupid as heck)
