Project 3: Proposal

The object I would like to use in my next project is a water bottle or any kind of plastic container that contains liquid in it like a jug of apple juice or anything similar. There is a multitude of sounds that can be heard through a water bottle. These sounds are, but not limited to, the following:

  • The sound of water sloshing around inside the bottle.
  • The sound of water being splashed around as the bottle is being shaken.
  • The sound of the plastic bottle being pressed by fingers.
  • The sound of the cap being twisted on and off.
  • The sound of water being poured out of the bottle.

The mood I am aiming to start this piece with is a calm and soothing one. The sloshing of the water inside the bottle sounds kind of like the water in a bath or a pool. I want to try and imitate the feel you get by hearing the calming waters of either a bath or a pool by gently rolling the water inside the bottle around. The mood of the piece can change when the plastic on the bottle is being pressed by together or when the cap is being twisted off. This sudden interruption can happen in the middle of the piece. It can then be soothed back in with the movements of the water. Overall, it will give the feeling of a storm passing by. It will be calm and serene at first, then transition into a harsh and thunderous part, and finally back into being calm and serene.
