Student Production Projects

On this page you will find a selection of Karl students' project work. We are proud of our students' work and hope that you can get an insight into the kind of creative work our students produce. This project work in various disciplines also demonstrates their ability to apply and synthesize their knowledge, solve problems and express their creativity.

Music Compositions

After being introduced to the concept of a Digital Audio Workstation (DAW), our students learned how to produce music by using a combination of audio sounds and loops, midi instruments, cutting, editing, pasting and sequencing.

After several weeks of tuition and practice using Garageband software, the students had a choice of two projects. They could either recreate part, or all, of a song they liked, or alternatively create their own original compositions. Below are some of the outstanding examples of their work:


Track One

Alex

Alex painstakingly reproduced this piano piece.

Track Two

Evonne

Evonne recorded a beautiful, multi-layered original composition.

Track Three

Lyan

An excellent cover of 'Something Just Like This'.

DJ Mixes

For the Digital Music mid-term project, our students were asked to record a 15-minute live mix of several songs of their choice. They were told that the music should not stop and that extra credit would be received for beat-mixing, applying effects or looping. The attached audio file is one of the best examples. Two students decided to work together on this mix, and so the length was doubled to 30 minutes.

Field Recordings

Students selected one out of three mid-term projects. For one of these choices, students were tasked with recording 10 sounds of their liking, just as a field recordist would do, They then had to transfer the recorded files to the computer, before editing them together using Audacity sound editing software. In addition, students had to write a short report which explained where they recorded each sound and why they chose to record it.

Pixel Art

Students on our I.T. Applications course created a piece of pixel art for their mid-term projects. Leading up to this, they had been learning how to use image editing software (Gimp) to render clean pixel-level graphics. The final work had to be exported as a .jpeg or .png file ready to be printed as an A4 document. The final posters were then displayed on the walls in the computer lab.

The students received marks for the effort they put into the work, the relative difficulty of what they were trying to achieve, and the overall aesthetics of the project. They also produced a short piece of writing, explaining what their idea was, how they achieved the results, the difficulties they had, and what they learned by completing the project.
