Soundscape Projects -Grades 10 and 11

Students were given the inspiration and freedom to create a project that utilizes only sound. They worked with or created original music, sound effects, voice-overs, and manufactured sounds. Soundscapes can be a narrative story that only uses sound, it can be abstract, it can be experimental, or it can be musical, or it can be a combination of all of these.

John -Grade 11

Mary -Grade 11
“Name: how did we end up so far away from the stars?
Basic Info: I made this using a noob, but creative program called Bandlab. My audio is a type of chill music called lofi music but this would technically fall into the neo soul category with hints of lofi, I guess. Lofi stands for low fidelity, and it offends me a little bit. Although it may sound simple at times with random sounds that may sound like they don’t belong there, I feel like it has a story to tell. My intention is to tell a story without using obvious sound effects like in a podcast where everything they do is talk. I think that’s why I like lofi music; the sounds take you to a whole new world. The most important thing for the audience is to be very relaxed and enjoy the aesthetic.”
