With these four links along with other materials that I found on the site, I have been inspired to create some sort of abstract, electronic piece of music. I will apply the steps and techniques that are used in the links provided. By using the these types of materials, I will be able to create some sort of unique piece of art. By programing different sounds along with a collection of abstract noises, my piece would fall under the category of experimental and electronic.

I have no idea what this movie is about. Its very confusing. It looks to me like a pointless narrator is talking while random noises are being played in the background.

The narrator is constantly talking about different subjects.

Im not sure if I should focus on the sounds in the background or what the narrator is talking about.

Many times, the  subject he talks about frequently changes from topic to topic.

     We can listen to the videos by using reduced listening. By only listening to the sounds made in the video, we can hear how the recorded noise can be heard using several of the three types of listening. Reduced listening is just hearing the raw sounds and not associating them with an actual physical instrument. By focusing on the sounds, it is hard to imagine them in your head without thinking about what made them. This is why reduced listening is one of the hardest ways of listening to music and sound."A session of reduced listening is quite an instructive experience."
