My Role in the Communication and Popular Music Class Group Project.

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.
