2. Note time and location of these recordings [25 points].

3. Listen to your environment and make note of what you perceive. Listen to the recording and make note of how the recording differs from your original perception (use good headphones/speakers!). Write a paragraph describing these differences: upload with recording to Gallery as “Sound Project 1: Sound recording Journal”, and give critique on others explanations [Comments: 25, Critique: 25 points].
