    Annoying Sounds

    Check out my annoying sounds! This 1-star assignment was short but interesting. Mostly because I got to think about the most annoying sounds that bother me. I used FreeSounds.org to gather my annoying sounds. I used a baby crying, a squeeky noise, a bunch of birds chirping and a goose honk. I then placed them into GarageBand and mashed them all together….it sounds wonderful.. Then uploaded to Soundcloud! I would have to say this is the worst soundcloud upload ever!

    It’s a Beautiful Day

    …Don’t let it get away! For this 2-star assignment we used one favorite quote and recorded a sound that fits well with the quote. One of my favorite quotes went really well with my all-time favorite song, It’s a Beautiful Day by U2! This assignment was pretty easy to put together. Unfortunately the recording for the song did not record very well but I tried my best. I then used the voice memo app on my computer to record my voice saying “It’s a beautiful day, don’t let it get away”. This quote/song always put me into a good mood, it reminds me of being in the wonderful Florida weather!…

    Radio Show Story

    For this 3-star assignment I told a story of how our radio show was produced. This story was actually a lot of fun! I created this story by first coming up with sounds that I would use in the story and came up with a brief script- this took the longest. I used FreeSounds.org to get the sounds onto my computer. I then recorded the story using Voice Memos in segments so that I could add in sound effects within my story. After I saved the 10 pieces of sounds/recordings to my desktop, I then began to place them into Garageband in their correct order. I spliced some of the…

    Girl Power Bumper

    I chose to make a bumper for one of my 10-star audio assignments. This assignment is 4-stars. This week we are gearing up to create our radio shows, so I decided to create a bumper of my own in order to help better prepare for our radio show. This radio bumper wasn’t all too difficult to produce since I have had experience doing it before. I simply found a tune that I liked (a secret agent tune) on FreeSounds.org and downloaded it to my computer. I then used GarageBand to create my bumper and added in the music with the bumper. In order for the music to fade out while…

    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…

    Distorted Sounds

    I was actually really excited about this assignment because I felt like it allowed me to learn more about Garageband, the app I am using for all audio assignments. For this 3.0-star assignment we were asked to take a recognizable song or sound, and then turn it into a completely unrecognizable sound. Here is what I came up with, see if you can identify the original sound. So were you able to figure it out? Well if you weren’t that’s good because the point was to make it unrecognizable! The original sound was actually two strokes on the guitar. I took the sound from Freesounds.org and then uploaded it to…

    <90secs, 9 sounds, One story

    This 3.5 star assignment was awesome! This was my first audio assignment and it took an hour or so to get the hang of it all, but I think I got it. Check out my <90 second audio story using a total of 9 sounds: I chose to go with a simple story, mostly because I enjoy simple stories. This story is of a man who after work, heads home on a train, reaches his destination, steps out onto the platform, and begins walking into his home city where you can hear the sounds of traffic (he’s probably happy he didn’t have to sit in it). He finds a nice…
