Made of Junk

For this 4.5 – star assignment we were asked to compose a sound piece using only found sounds and edit and mix the piece on any sound editing equipment and upload to soundcloud. So this is what I came up with:

I actually had a TON of fun with this assignment!! My only wish is that I had more time to do it. I created this song by taking a bunch of sounds from Freesound.org and placing them into Garageband and from there tried to create a beat. I would say this took me about an hour to do after getting all the sounds to match up and create a beat. I used sounds like glass breaking, a guy saying “yeah!”, door slamming, church bells, clashing, etc. Once I got the sounds where I wanted, I then adjusted the levels, how far apart they should be, etc. I then downloaded the .mp3 to soundcloud and uploaded it to this post. This assignment was fairly easy to create, it was just the creativity aspect that took a while to compose. I’ve really got the hang of Garageband now after doing three assignments with it! I named this “Made of Junk” because it really uses a bunch of weird junky sounds.

The photo used is a sunrise in Florida overlooking the Atlantic. Overall I had a lot of fun with this assignment, again I wish I had more time to play around with it and create a better – less annoying version!
