Ancient Greek Leitmotifs
In Music this term we have been looking at leitmotifs (themes from characters in films). We examined the leitmotifs for Darth Vader, Superman, Indiana Jones and James Bond. We examined rhythm, tempo, dynamic and pitch.
Our next step was to research a Greek god or goddess and try to create a leitmotif that suited them. We chose from a range of instruments, wqrote our own notation and then tried to create a piece of music that reflected the character. Finally, we used audacity to record our performances. Here our the seven pieces of music.
Poseidon God of the Sea Group 1
The Poseidon Trio
