Term one arts learning

Reflection of term one learning 
This term I have been learning about the elements of music so I can communicate to anyone from any culture, because music is a universal language. To show this learning I created a soundscape based on a poem I wrote. 
I believe my soundscape is relational because I made a beat out of a base drum, a rhythm out of a shaker which represented the beaches creaking and rubbing against each other, an ostinato out of two clangers which represents the rebuild of Christchurch, and it all connects to my poem.
Overall I think this term has taught me a lot about the musical arts and all its properties.

Christchurch is my home.

Beside me
sway in the cool wind 

from the big oaks, 
landing on top
of the neighbors roof.

On the road,
a car's 
exhaust pipe 
pumps out dust,
from behind, 
the fresh air. 

I reach out in front of me,
and touch the
wood of the fence. 

The otakaro
river runs
through Christchurch,
-  cold and wet.

At the beach,
my brother and I 
into the waves,
on a hot summer's day
the water is brisk.

Christchurch is my home.

Here is a link to my soundscape of the poem you just read.


  1. nice, I like your poem because it has a lot of detail, it is so creative, and I can see that you put a lot of work into it, at my old school I wrote something like this.

  2. I like when you said drive into the waves(In this story does drive mean run or walk)
