Introduction

We all made this project to give the outside world such as colleges, jobs and parents, a passage into this great program freestyle is and to display all our works for future or even present viewers. I was required to get pictures, writing and music completed on time in order to contribute on the task that we have been working on. My classes taught me how to use programs like ProTools and Photoshop and how to make experimental music and amazing photos.

On my website in the other tabs you will be seeing my three poems, my music from ProTools, and also my images edited with Photoshop. They are a passage into my life and how I see the world today and what I can enjoy from it. I value the time and effort put into the classes and the projects we do. Now I have a greater love/respect for music producers, writers, and photographers.

My Expository Essay was an inside to my life and what I have come from. I talk about my passion which is a growing love for me for around 5 years. It has helped me over come alot of my problems in life. From that I can now do projects I wasnt able to over come and do in the years before.

Poems

My poems, Planned Living/Life and Simple, are the three out of many poems that are being displayed. I and throughout all my poems I was trying to set a similar feel of being scared of future or growth. My ekphrastic poem, Planned Living, is my most favorite out of the three (ekphrastic - a vivid description of a scene or, more commonly, a work of art. Through the imaginative act of narrating and reflecting on the “action” of a painting or sculpture, the poet may amplify and expand its meaning).

First I wrote a subtle but meaningful poem about my life and the struggles of the future. In ProTools I incorporated fading in/out music to set the mood for what I wrote about. Also I spoke over the picture reading the poem, while doing that I used pauses and higher pitches to give more of a feel for what I was trying to bring across.

I am exploring the feeling of drowning through realationships

I used a lot of my family's previous knowledge and also from my Design class to know how to set up my pictures (rule of thirds, lighting, shadows, etc.). Also I used photoshop to adjust the colors to get more of a dark mood and feel. Most of my images are mysterious because at the end of the year they are going to come together and be one giant idea.

 

 

Music

     My music is used to express how I am as a person, chilled but also like excitement. My inspiration for my music is based around Logic and MGK’s music. It has a deep strong meaning and also bring a wide open tone and mood to it. I used the Mini Grand in Pro Tools for the background piano and also the Xpand 2! For the beat drops and the wave like piano. I used the keyboard and audio mixer to raise and lower the volumes at the right points in the music. I am into making music as a possible future for this experiment it helped me grow a greater love for it. I value the programs we are given at Freestyle.
