The task was completed in conjunction with the eLearning Resource (www.e-lr.com.au). This resource is an online ‘textbook’ covering a wide variety of musical concepts. It features examples from many diverse styles as well as quizzes and aural training.
The e-LR has an extensive section on Australian Indigenous Music. Within this section are pages and videos about indigenous instruments, compositional devices and audio examples. Within the audio samples are a number of contemporary loop-based samples.
The design of this task incorporates ideas from The e-LR and uses its sound samples alongside those of Soundtrap. The aims of the task is to create a rhythmically fluent foundation with featured samples derived from Indigenous instruments, performance methods and styles.
