OpenLab #2: Feedback on the course

We are currently in the eighth week of the semester.  For this OpenLab assignment, I am asking you to provide some feedback on your experience of the course so far.

Assignment (Due Thursday, March 26th, at the start of class).  Your assignment consists of two parts:

  1. Complete the survey by clicking here.  The survey consists of 10 questions, and should take 5-10 minutes to complete.  It is anonymous (I will see the answers, but I will not know who submitted them).
  2. Confirm that you have completed the survey by leaving a comment in reply to this post (for example, you could just write “I completed the survey just now”).

Extra Credit.  Tell me what music you are listening to these days.  What’s in heavy rotation on your iPod?  Give us a brief description.  I’m listening to Parov Stelar (“compulsively listenable electroswing”) and Shpongle (“a unique concoction of lounge driven downtempo encased in an endless sphere of production”).    A few ground rules:  No offensive lyrics, be considerate of others, feel free to include a link but only to a legal site such as YouTube or SoundCloud.

    I was on and saw a video of an amazing Beatboxer in London who eventually started to “beatbox” the above mentioned song and it made me want to listen to it again. He has sort of a Dubsteppy feel to his work.

    I listen to all sorts of music and in different languages, but I tend to stay away form todays music as I it just doesn’t appeal to me. I range from 2Pac (Tupac Shakur) to Yanni. I grew up listening to Rage Against the Machine and Beastie Boys, which I still listen to today. I find myself listening to more calm music now such as Yanni, occasionally Beethoven, Tchaikovsky, etc. As far as different languages I listen to music from Former Yugoslavia musicians such as Bijelo Dugme, Dino Merlin, etc. and tend to listen to Greek music. Here are a few links from YouTube of Yanni, songs which I prefer to listen to:
