2W29 Presentation Feed-back
My photographs of the different playing positions generated some interest, my peers like the actual images. I could use similar pictures to create an animation, or use film footage to create visuals. I will have to get my tabla playing to a decent level if I want to record myself playing.
I think the tabla lessons showed the repetitive nature of tabla, it is like a mantra, if you read the ‘bols’ (notes). Again this is also another audio possibility.
The photographs were well received. I have taken lots and lots of photographs, so I have a wide selection to choose from. I almost felt I had too many pictures, but I think it is good to keep taking them. As I take them I am also try new things out, taking a chance in different situations, sometime it fails sometimes you get nice surprises.
We talked about sound therapy, a question was raised, ‘will I play my animation to people on an individual basis as therapy?’. I am using the elements of therapy to give myself an underlining direction and theme rather than create music visuals for therapy. I am currently writing about the theme of harmony and vibrations for my essay.
