This term I have been learning about the elements of music so I can communicate to anyone from any culture through music because music is a universal language.
To show my learning I created a soundscape based on a poem I wrote. My soundscape is relational because I used many elements and I can explain why I used them. I had a beat, rhythm, tempo and tone colour. For an example, I used the shaker for dolphins splashing in the waves and the snapper for the cranes.
Overall I think I went well because I got a lot more done than I thought I would.

Where is my happy place?
My happy place is where
the Dolphins splash,
in and out of the waves.
Where the crabs,
pop in and of the dark blue sea,
playing hide and go seek.
Where the cabbage trees,
dance in the warm summer breeze.
Where the tui puff out their chests,
showing off to their friends.
Where the fantails fly from tree to tree,
in the morning sun.
This is my happy place.
