When I was working with my group members, Mac and Brume, they both helped to make this skit possible with constant communication, laughs along the way and being able to work with each other.
While working on this final project, it was easy to see how fun this project would be and how it could become something exciting. Although our dress rehearsal wasn’t the best, with the help of the professors, we were able to see how to improve our skit to make it better.
Although this project was a little tedious, it was definitely worth it in the end to end the first semester with fun skits.
For my. Group, we decided that we wanted to chose Ade in the cafeteria. The main place that we decided to use for a performance is to use the second level patio section. We had also made a list of twenty objects that we thought we could mmake characters out of
1. Salt and Pepper shaker 2. Soda Machine 3. Coffee Machine 4. Napkins 5. Plastic Cups 6. Tables 7. Chairs 8. Silverware 9. Dessert Bar 10. Plastic Plates 11. Sandwich Bar 12. Milk Machine 13. Cereal Bar 14. Bagel Area 15. Deli Area 16. Salad Bar 17. Yogurt Bar 18. Timed time for breakfast, lunch and dinner 19. Pepper Area 20. Patio
Out of the twenty objects, Mac had decided to take the Clock, #18, for the drawing. Brume took the coffee machine while I took the dessert bar.
For the dessert bar, I had decided to make a gender-fluid character that wore candy colour themed clothes. Whenever I look at the dessert bar, there are a lot of chocolate options with coloured frosting, sprinkles and food coloured options. I named my character Cupcake, thought that is not her real name, but a nickname they prefers to go by.
The sound performance we did consisted of sounds Mac, Brume and I had in common from our daily practice.
For the performance we wanted to have the essence of walking to class where we had Mac ripping up pages for a class, myself walking through leaves and having Brume be wind that blows through our day.
Thoughts on the performance
The performance of the sounds that we hear were interesting to recreate in a video. We collected leaves, and it was cold while doing so, and had put some leaves on the wall. We had also recreated a bench that looks pretty good for a quick put together idea. My group worked really well together, we communicated quite well and had great ideas that were used to create our video.
For my sound sculpture piece, I went off of my daily practice sounds, which are walking and wind. For creating the walking sound, I used a wet paper towel being thrown against my hands. I think the sound effect worked pretty well for the effect of walking.
For the sound of wind, I used a box filled with trash bags. I shook the box to create the effect of rustling leaves.
For the sound sculpture, I filled a box with crumpled up paper. To create sound, you must shake the box to create other sounds I hear; clothes rustling against backpacks and most importantly, to create the sound of leaves.
