Listening Through the Week (5)

Listening Through the Week (5)

This week was audio week. My first impression was not great. I hate hearing my voice on recording because to me I sound like a 4 year old little girl. Even though I was dreading this week of audio assignments, I went in with my head up high. The only way I can learn audio story telling is by doing so. We had to listen to the Mood Graffiti audio and reflect on it. It was very interesting and it…

Sounds only a super chef would love

Sounds only a super chef would love

Sound Effects¬†– 3.5 Stars For this audio assignment I had to create my own sound effect. I decided to incorporate my super hero into this. Since she is a super chef I decided to create a sound effect of Merciful Mise en Place’s 2 favorite sounds. Dishing being washed and put into the dishwasher because this means that she completed her job and ready to move onto help a new person in need. The other sound would be someone cutting…

Merciful Mise en Place Soundtrack

Merciful Mise en Place Soundtrack

Here is the soundtrack for Merciful Mise en Place. This was really hard to do. I am not too creative when it comes to wording so this was especially hard to do. I ended up googling chef quotes that I could mash together to get my soundtrack to describe a chef. I used Garageband for this recording. I recorded my voice and altered it to sound a little bit less like a 4 year old little girl. I then added…

Tweeting Along With The Radio

Tweeting Along With The Radio

I listened to DS106 radio Wednesday night. I did not know what to expect the first time listening so I was a but nervous. This night of radio ended up being an episode of Jessica Jones. I have never heard of the show before but I assume it is from Netflix because I recognized the Netflix sound at the beginning. It was really hard at times in the episode to understand what was actually going on. There would be music…

Super Radio Ideas

Super Radio Ideas

For a super radio show I have a few ideas: I think it would be neat to have a superhero radio station where you get to talk to the superhero. There would be an interviewer interviewing a superhero. They would ask all the hows, whys, whats of being a superhero. Another idea would be to get a superhero to tell a story from one of the times they saved the day. They would give us all the juicy details! My…

My Radio Bumper

My Radio Bumper

This week we had to come up with a radio bumper for DS106 radio. Since this semester is Super DS106 I said Super DS106 Radio in my bumper. It was easy coming up with what to say but I with it was more original that just my name and radio name but I am not a creative audio person. I didn’t want just my voice so I added the Incredibles theme song to the background. I was not looking forward…

Who’s There?

Sound Effects Story¬†– 3.5 Stars For this assignment I had to make a story with only sound effects. This took me awhile to think about what I should do. I ultimately decided to do a scary story. I used iMovie to make this audio. I used some of their sound effects but also used some from online (https://freesound.org/browse/tags/sound-effects/). I uploaded the sounds one at a time as I got more ideas on how the story should go. After listening to…

Moon Reflection

Moon Reflection

The Moon Graffiti audio was very interesting. Even though there were no images I could use the sounds to create an image in my head. The sounds of this really brought the whole thing together. The tones of the voices, background music, and then sounds of the space craft were all what helped to make this audio so great. Sounds bring emotion and I could feel emotions just listening to it. Sound most definitely drives stories. It drives them by…

2 in 1 Song

2 in 1 Song

Instrumentals vs. Vocals 3.5 Stars For this audio assignment I had to pick 1 instrumental song and 1 song with just vocals. This assignment was actually way harder than I thought it would be. I wanted to do 2 country songs but it just was not working out. I needed to find a song that had a beat that did not drastically change through the song. Once I found one (Jealous by Nick Jonas) I had to find a song…

Photographing Week 4

Photographing Week 4

This week was so far my favorite. I love to take pictures, even though they may not always be the best. I did try this week to take my time, focus on lighting, and paying attention to the moment. I have always enjoyed photography but never went any farther to take classes in it. Taking a picture in a certain way can really make the photo turn out better. A great photo can tell a story with no words. Watching…
