The file from which the student comes out is not only the audio documents themselves, but also subsequent discussions with the authors or dramaturges. How do you perceive them in context? In what, how, why... inspired you (or not inspired) this set of audio documents? Both in content and form. In what, how, why .. inspired you (or not inspired) creators (their different personalities and authorial approaches). All in relation to your experience, listener and possibly creators. It is not a description of what happened during the semester, but a reflection, a verbalization of your inspiration.
