Well I got a little behind in posting a video of the week due to being sick but I have a really cool (and kinda long) video to share with you this week but it's very cool!!! Many of you left me questions in the survey about the Marble Machine Video (it was the 2nd Video of the Week) and this week's video might answer some of those questions. The guy you see is the inventor/builder of the machine. He will show you how some of the parts work and you'll get to hear how the machine sounds if it's not hooked up to microphones. Watch for the words "Room Sound" and "Line Sound" on the screen. "Room Sound" is when the microphones aren't picking up the sound and what you are hearing is like what you would hear if you were standing in the room with him. "Line Sound" is what the microphones pick up which is why he's wearing headphones so he can hear what's coming thru the microphones. Don't forget to either fill out the survey, leave a note on the Padlet, or leave a comment. I hope you enjoy the video!
In honor of Halloween being next Monday, I found a fun video by the group VoicePlay which is an A Capella group meaning they just use their voices to make the music - no instruments. VoicePlay covered the song "Grim Grinning Ghosts" which was written back in the 1960's and is used all throughout the Haunted Mansion attractions at the Disney theme parks. The title of the song actually comes from a poem by William Shakespeare (a very famous playwright you will learn about in High School). Don't forget to take the survey, leave a comment, or leave a note on the Padlet. I hope you enjoy this week's video!
