Sounds of the Gothic

26 Aug

As noted yesterday, one of my Year 9 classes will be looking at distinctively Australian Gothic texts.  In order to help them to better understand that idea of an Australian influence, I am keen to give them an opportunity to create a distinctively Gothic soundscape.  They would need to create a Gothic base, and then add ONE quintessentially Australian element to make create an Australian Gothic sound.  That sound might be the rustling of gum leaves, the rhythmic thud of a bouncing kangaroo, the wail of a didgeridoo – it is their choice.  Once the soundscape is created students must justify their choices and explain why the completed soundscape is representative of the Australian Gothic.
