This is the first quick blog which documents my role in Music and Audio Production Year 2’s class group project for our Communication and Popular Music module.
Our project is a 4 part podcast which shows the importance of popular music to the wider college community at Dundalk Institute of Technology.
I am on the production team and my main role is to compose a jingle which gives the project a re-ocurring theme and image. I have suggested making two jingles, for example:
#1- jingle music —> “DkIT Music and Audio Production Presents “NAME OF SHOW- The Importance of Popular Music…” —> jingle music.
this would blend into;
#2- epic radio sound effect/swoosh —> male voiceover “The 1960’s… (insert appropriate title that goes with script eg “Teenagers, Rebellion and Music” and behind this could be a quick DJ mashup of chosen 60’s tunes.
and that would lead us into the script.
so jingle #2 would change with each episode eg
episode #2: epic radio sound effect/swoosh —> male voiceover – “The 1970’s… (insert appropriate title that goes with script and behind this could be a quick DJ mashup of chosen 70’s tunes.
ETC for each decade.
So we have the re-occuring theme (jingle 1) for every episode plus intro per episode jingle (which has the same format except the music and title changes per decade).
Sounds simple… I have to get creative now and come up with a couple of musical ideas for jingle #1.
Further developments will be documented in the next blog.
