I'm just downloading the Brian Eno app that I might try to use to create ambient sound within my dissertation. The reviews seem good and it doesn't rely on traditional music instruments, so I might have a chance with it, then.
What I have in mind - and I haven't given this too much thought or tried out the app yet, obviously - is to create a different pieces of ambient background music to accompany each component of my dissertation. The idea would be that the ambient background music might reflect the content of a particular component.
It will be interesting to try out the app, and also to see whether I can take a completed from file and work on it in SoundStudio, perhaps adding other electronic chatter. The electronic chatter could also be aligned to what appears within the text within that component, for instance it could be typing, the sound of speaking, it culd be audio recorded during the observation and so on.
It's going to be fun trying to offer justification for all this in the 2000-word rationale that is required for the submission on non-traditional assessments.
