Learning activity details

Can you guess the story?

Working as sound designers and story tellers, 12th grade students created 1-2 minute abstract audio fictions. They were asked to design a vivid sound narrative without the use of any dialogue. They could only use sounds that they recorded in the field with a portable audio device and/or custom sounds they designed in the music creation program, Reason. Students were not allowed to download any online samples, everything here is 100% original.
