ICT

This week we are creating a piece of music to accompany a scene that you will film later in the term.

  1. Watch this video that uses different music to the opening of ‘The Lion King’. Make notes on how the music makes you feel in each one and how the music affects your mood? What features of the music made you feel that way? Was it slow? Was it screechy? Was it loud? Was it fast paced?
  2. Next have a think about what sort of scene you might want to film later in the term and make the music to match. Some options could be:
  • Sad scene – Slow music with a string instrument
  • Action scene – Fast music with exciting sounds
  • Dance scene – Fast music with a beat added
  • Happy scene – high notes
  1. Watch this video to explain how use the ‘song maker’.
  2. Go to the website.
  3. Create your music by following these steps:
  • Choose an instrument.
  • Choose low or high notes or both. See video
  • Choose an instrument for the beat. See video
  • Choose the tempo to make it slower or quicker. See video
  1. Watch this video to explain how to save and copy the link
  2. Paste the link into a word document and name the file ‘Your name Music’

Make sure you send your file with the rest of your work.

I look forward to receiving your work later today.
