This term I have been learning about the elements of music, so I can communicate with anyone that talks a different language, because music is a universal language. To present this learning I created a soundscape based on a poem I wrote about Christchurch. My soundscape is relational because I could finish my one and help other people and because I can explain why I uses the elements of music I chose. I used 3 elements of music: the shakers to represent the cicadas; the carpet to represent the wind; a stomping noise for the beat. Overall I think my soundscape was great.

Here's my poem
Where do I come from
Underneath the big tall
oak, fantails flit and flutter,
showing off their tails to other birds.
On top of the rusty old shed
cicadas rub their wings making the music
of an orchestra.
Beside the cracking sand, salty
water smells of
fish and seals.
Beside the clean chair
Blankets sway in the wind,
As silky as my mum’s top.
Beside the dry old grass
The Ōtakaro is as dirty as washing
that's been there for days.
On top of the couch I snuggle up
a movie with my family.
I come from Ōtautahi,Christchurch.
