Site Customization

Well I finally got around to customizing my website. Only took me 3/4 of the semester. I think the thing that was most difficult for me when I was trying to decide what my site would look like was the idea that it was still for school. Although all of the classes I am using this blog for have said that I should make this website my own, and that I should use it to suite my own needs, I haven't really been doing anything for my self this...

The Impact Of Technology On Privacy

I think privacy has probably been an issue since humanity created the front door. It is an issue of security, It is difficult to feel safe in one's own skin when you know you're being watched, or when your information is available for anyone to look at, just as one might feel insecure with their front door wide open. That being said I technology has made a lot more doors that could proverbially be left open, and once someone has entered through...

What is the Internet?

To put it in the simplest terms the internet is a communication network. It is a medium through which we can communicate with one another, and it just so happens to be the largest and most versatile communication system ever created. It encompasses hundreds of other communications systems within its network, including sound, images, text, videos and more. Like any other communication system, you have to opt into using the internet, however,...

Ted Talk? A post where I explain why I haven’t been posting and rant about life.

We are now in week 10 of the semester, or maybe week 11, I'm not too sure anymore, it could be week 9. However long it has been, this has been the hardest semester of my college career. I probably said the same thing last semester, and it isn't because the classes are become more difficult or because the work load has increased. It has become clear to me that the reason this has been such a difficult semester for me is because the pandemic has...

Audio Assignment: Make Your Own Mixtape

This week, in preparation for our music based radio show, I prepared a mixtape which we will go further in depth on in the show itself. This playlist contains a number of songs that I listen to while taking part in one of the most important activities in my life: cooking. Cooking is something I do almost every day and it is very important to who I am as a person. Music is also a very important part of who I am, so it makes sense that the two...

Weekly Summary 5

I would say this week has been the toughest week thus far. I imagine that if this trend continues I wont be able to get through the semester, let alone the school year. If I had to guess I would say I'm behind in most of my classes, but more importantly my mental and physical health is suffering so I'm going to make an executive decision and reset this week. I may fall behind, but if I can use this weekend to get myself back on track in all my...

Audio Assignment: Chrome Labs

This is another assignment that I thought would be fun for future generations of this class to participate in. There is a program available on the internet called chrome labs, which has a plethora of music based applications including beat makers and melody makers etc. For this assignment you will need to use the maximum number of bars available, (I forget whether the maximum number is 16, 18 or 20 but I believe the assignment says 20) to...

Audio Assignments:3’s A band

I decided to make an audio assignment because I noticed there was a considerable lack of composition based audio assignments in the assignment bank. I certainly Plan on adding more audio assignments, and I'll try to add tutorials for all of them. For this Audio Assignment you'll use any composition software (muse score, finale, etc.) and you'll make an orchestrated piece of music using exactly 3 instruments. You can have multiple parts for 1...

Audio Assignment: Reverse It

The Audio Assignment Reverse It Asks that you take a soundtrack form a musical and rearrange the tracks in order to create a whole new story. Many musicals begin and end in similar places musically, with the finale being a reprisal of some of the main beginning numbers of the Musical, and the case is the same for the musical I chose. The musical I chose is Parade, which tells the true story of a young Jewish man named Leo Frank who moves to...

Week 4 Summary

Another hard week full of too many assignments to keep track of, but hey only 12 more weeks to go. I talked in one of my posts for this week about how life is just moving at 10000 miles an hour all the time with no breaks and sometimes I just want to take things slow for a while, and I think I was able to accomplish that with this weeks assignments while still managing to tell stories with images. I'm excited to work with sound next week,...
