My learning

This term I have been learning the 5 elements of music. We discovered that music is a universal language because no matter where it comes from or who made it they all have the elements which everyone can connect too. 
To show this learning I created a soundscape based on a poem that I wrote this year. My soundscape is relational because I used many elements in my music, and can explain why I choose them and their impact. I chose to use a creaky old lazy Susan to make the sound of trains on a track. I did that by spinning it round and round. 
Overall I am very happy with how I went because I stayed focused and persevered.

                                Christchurch
                             It's  my home.


All around,
Green nature stalks us, 
revealing it's inner beauty.

Above the treetops,
Songs of birds,
fog the air - a misty cloud.

Outside, 
Cold refreshing air,
revives us all - a magic potion.

Hidden in the water,
Smelly fish,
Stink 
the beach out.

Lying on the stoney road,
Mystical orange cones 
Guard us from hidden danger.

At dawn,
A warm breeze,
filters our minds, 
Into oblivion.

Curled up on the beach, 
seagulls scoff down
stolen chips - 
A mystery suspect.

Hidden under the sand,
Jandals drag,
Clinging on to my feet -
a slithering snake.

This is the place I call home
Ōtautahi, Christchurch.

  1. Wow Izzi I love your art work it is amazing. I liked the sentence where you said hidden under the sand jandals cling onto my feet-a slithery snake it reminded me of Kaiteri on the beach.

  3. Wow Izzi,
    I really like your descriptive words, It made me feel very happy and refreshed, my favourite bit was when you mentioned the warm breeze filters our mind into oblivion
    It reminded me of when I watched the sunset go down in bridge valley I also liked when you talked about the jandals collecting sand! Keep up the good work Izz!
