Let me attempt to piece together three things that presented themselves to me in the last couple of days. In doing so, I will continue to beat the modern scholarly communication drum I’ve been beating, particularly in my own discipline, education. First, yesterday, I saw that the Institution of Education Sciences (IES) put together a...

Concert Attendance #2

by

http://scholarscompass.vcu.edu/musc_student_recitals/313/\ file:///C:/Users/Rachel/Downloads/JasonGarland2016_5_3_730pmProgram.pdf The piece that I chose for my second concert was one from the VCU Scholars Compass. It was a junior recital by Jason Garland on the tenor trombone. I chose this piece because I am not very familiar with the trombone, and I was curious to hear what it would sound like in […]

The song I chose was Wonderwall by Oasis. This song was released in 1995 and was immediately a smash hit and one of the most successful British songs of all time. It was played on every alternative radio station on repeat. The lead singer of the band actually hates the song. He said that every […]

Concert Attendance #1

This past July Fourth, I decided to do something different since I had already went to see fireworks the day before. I saw an event on Facebook called “Red, White, and Lights” that was an event with food, activities, a performance by the Richmond Symphony and a light show at the end, so I decided […]

So with it being the fourth of July weekend, I knew I would be hearing fireworks every night all weekend. Last night before I went to bed, I heard fireworks coming from every direction all around us. Most of them were pretty far away so I didn’t really see much, but I could hear everything. […]

Listening Journal Week 6 #1

So, ever since I started taking this class, I’ve constantly had a lot of the songs we listen to stuck in my head, even ones that don’t have words. For some reason, I never thought I would find myself humming these songs. Usually I just get really annoying songs from the radio stuck in my […]

During the huge bike race, many different types of photos were captured. I chose an action shot, up close and personal, of a point right in the middle of the race. It shows excitement as the bikers race by quickly only a few feet away from the younger fans. You can tell that the bikers […]

Listening Journal Week 5 #3

Today, I woke up to many different sounds. Outside I could hear some type of outdoor machine. It sounded like a leaf blower, but there aren’t any leaves on the ground, so I figured it had to be something else. I looked outside and couldn’t tell where that noise was coming from. During this time, […]

Listening Journal Week 5 #2

As I was sitting here working on my “Transmit Your Listening” assignment, my stomach was growling cause I haven’t eaten yet today. This got me thinking about all of the weird noises your body makes and the fact that you can’t see how it’s creating that sound, whether it’s the noise your stomach makes when […]

Listening Journal Week 5 Transmit Your Listening

by

Listening to the same song at a different speed or in a different key completely changes how I feel when I listen to it. It is often hard to tell that it is even the same song. Usually, I find it a lot easier to tell if it is the same song when only the […]
