The Christine Post Area

Please post the your entries in your WordPress/SoundCloud accounts first as you would a regular assignment. Then post your “Daily Meds” entry (Word Form) under this section along with you SoundCloud link (under the “Daily Meds” section the recording applies to) of your recording assignment of the day. Remember this is to be done everyday for the rest of the course.  Each day you will pick a topic/theme from a new page in the “Daily Meds” to create, record and write on. You will turn-in two daily assignments to this “Daily Med Blog” (Personal WordPress blog and Soundcloud recording) in one post under the “Students Designated Post Area” . Start with your WordPress Account first, then Musical Daily Meds Blog, then Copy and Paste that Link under this post in the “Leave a Reply” section. All posts on all three WordPress sites(1. Students account. 2. Musical Daily Meds. 3. Intro to Audio.) need to be labeled with the student’s name, time, week, day, date, and topic title at the beginning of the post (Example: John Doe, 11:25pm, Week 1 Day 3 April 28, Begin Again). Remember you can link all assignment topics to the “Daily Meds Topic” of choice to help aid in finding a source of inspiration that is best for your recording and video needs. The Daily Meds Workbook can be found at (https://musicaldailymeds.wordpress.com/the-workbook/).

    Garage Band: ipod or iphone, or you can download it to your ipad.
    Dj music mixer edjing: you can download it to your iphone, or onto itunes.

    Creative Word: Breakthrough.

    creative experience: say yes to all questions.
    I felt like this experience was really hard because I wanted to give longer answers. And if the teacher asked me if I understand something when I didn’t I had to say yes which was difficult. This experience was very different and odd.

    Daily dose: progress is perfection.
    I feel that this is very true, I relate to this in many ways. One of the many ways that I relate to this is that when I first got into the studio and was recording I didn’t know much, I got in there and was overwhelmed, it took me awhile to get to where I am today. I was very confused and didn’t know much about how to layer my songs and what I was actually capable of. Robbie (my recording guy) taught me how to layer my songs and with progress I was succeeding, every time I stepped into the recording booth I got better, and better. With progress you will achieve greatness.

    Daily act: Focus.
    Today I had a hard time focusing, again I was very overwhelmed and wasn’t quite sure what I was doing in this class, but by the end of today I was focusing and understanding.

    Creative Word: Truth.

    Creative Experiment: Hop in The Shower.
    While feeling refreshed and relaxed in the shower I think about how soothing it is just lying in my room effortlessly and relaxing listening to my favourite songs so peacefully as I drift away to sleep. This is an effortless task that is so simple and peaceful. It’s like laying on a cloud and being carried away to the soothing sound of the wind. My next project is going to be not effortless, but it’s going to make people feel at peace.
    Daily Dose: Envy
    This section really made me think and wonder how I’d feel if I tried to not focus on the cons of myself, but to focus on the pros. If I tried to focus on the pros more maybe I would build and grow instead of falling deeper and deeper into a black hole. In my own mind I feel like I have no purpose and I have no talents, even when others constantly tell me that I have the best gifts in the world. If I started to focus more on the pros rather than the cons in myself maybe then I would achieve greatness. Maybe there is no more maybes. If I try to eliminate every I can’t, maybe, and I won’t, and switch them with, I can, and I will, then I will achieve greatness. Instead of envying everyone else I’ll make them envy me.
    Daily Act: I Am Unique.
    In my own personal experience with music today there is way too many songs about drugs, money, getting girls, and fancy cars, but in my music I write about things that are close to my heart. This makes me unique. I write about anti bullying, ending violence towards women and ending violence in general, I write about personal experiences, trauma that I’ve faced and about my personal views. I am different because I am me. I am unique because I use music as an outlet; I use music as my escape from reality. I am unique because I always try to guide myself down the wright path. I am unique just like everyone else is. As I say in one of my own written songs “Be yourself, Be Unique,” that’s one of my mottos I’ll always try to be different. I am unique.

    Creative Words: Mountain Sound.

    Creative Experiment: Standing Still.
    If time stopped and everyone lost movement and froze, I think that it would sound peaceful, maybe we could hear a big gust of wind, or it could be just silence, I can’t imagine what particular sound the world would make, but I’m sure it would be peaceful.
    Daily Dose: Flow.
    This section inspired me to actually try and attempt to reach a new goal with my music ive listened to my music over and over and it all sounds alike in one way or another, I need to actually try and attempt to get outside the box and think about all these new and cool ways that I can record. This section really made me wonder to myself that if I possibly tried to achieve this goal and come from a new angle, then maybe I’d get somewhere I want to be.
    Daily Act: Relax.

    Today I’m Coming To Class Not Anxious, but relaxed. I will think positively and try to experiment more today but in a relaxing smooth way. I want people to relax when they listen to my music and just feel it. So for today’s project I will not only be coming to class relaxed, but my music will show emotion and relaxation all in one.
    Listening Assignment: Who You Are, Jesse J.
    I’m hearing reverb during the chorus, as well as 4 other women singers during the chorus saying “who you are.” Im hearing a lot of powerful emotions throughout the song, she is deeply expressing the emotion that she is feeling through her voice. There is only guitar through the verse with reverb and then when it gets to the chorus I believe you’d call it a beat drop, and it really helps the song out it gives it a lot more emotion it gives it a sense of power. The words are so deep and meaningful she’s telling her viewers to stay stong and that its okay to be different, cry, and that they aren’t a lot. Through the little bridge near the end there are the 4 voices singing with Jesse, and then after that bridge near then end there is a short electric guitar solo.

    Creative Experiment: Positive Attributes:
    I woke up this morning and thought to myself “wow I only have 4 days left to get my final project in, also all this homework, I’m never gonna get this credit.” I woke up doubting that I would get through this course but now after talking with you about my grades and the help im feeling confident in my project., and think I’ll be able to have a Fantastic finished project.
    Daily Dose: On Obsession:
    I feel that it is good to point out our own flaws and attempt to try and fix our mistakes and flaws but we shouldn’t pay too much attention to it. The more we think about the flaws we each carry the more we are going to drift away from our creative mind and soul because if there is too much negativity in your life you will never figure out what the true meaning of positivity is. Music carrys so many different energy’s, Don’t get caught up in the bad ones. Open your mind and stop obsessing over your flaws let the light shine in and perhaps show you a new way to hear and look at things such as music.
    Daily Action: Look:
    If I decide to not just focus on my insecurities today I am going to look at myself differently. Today im going to come out of the paper bag and try and see myself for the beauty and creativity that I have within.
