Since my last blog post I have continued to experiment with my music ideas for my narrative project. After a tutorial with one of my tutors and after talking with my peers I decided to try and create a narrative using the discussions I have with my sister when she is practising on her harp. The harp holds a special significance for me, as I have been brought up around harps my whole life. My dads job is making harps! The sound of a harp is almost hard-wired and I also used to play when I was able. The video I took of my sister practising didn’t turn out the way I had hoped. However this led me to the idea of doing a time-lapse film of my dad making the harps. This was also prompted by the fact that dad’s company, Pilgrim Harps, were having a film taken of the workshop on Wednesday just gone. Furthermore I suddenly remembered that my dad had previously featured in a YouTube video of himself in his workshop assembling parts of the harp together. Having this as a time-lapse I feel is really effective it shows the sheer amount of skill and hours that go into building instruments like the harp. There also seem to be a very natural rhythm as the ‘knuckle’ on the harp is being shaped. I could also apply this to my dad painting designs on the soundboard of the harp.
