Sound Visualization : Phase 4


This project has truly helped me a lot in my understanding of Staccato and Legato sounds and shapes. Coming into this project, I had no clue what these terms meant. Class discussion and classwork helped me to start to understand what these terms meant. I found myself mixing up the two terms after the first class on Sound Visualization. After the second class, I did completely understand these two terms. This project also helped my analyze sound more carefully. I realized there was a lot more going on than when I usually listened to music. These lessons helped me clearly identity whether a certain sound or instrument was staccato or segato. Due to my previous experience with Photoshop, animating my composition wasn’t much of a difficult task. It did take a lot of my time though. I thoroughly enjoyed what this project had to offer and had fun animating my drawings to visualize these terms.

  1. I can really relate to how you felt while doing this project and how you felt after. I also feel like I understand the terms better now and I don’t feel as lost as I did when I first heard the terms in class. Nice work !
