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 to fit over top. I wanted to do 2 different genres so I went to find a country song. There were a few that I thought would work but I could not find just the vocals of the song. I just kept playing the instrumental song while going through different vocals until I found one that I felt fit the best. After awhile I found Cowboy Casanova by Carrie Underwood. I converted the Youtube videos to mp3 and then I used Garageband to load the 2 songs in. I lined up the songs so that they would both be in sync with the vocal pitch and beat. My favorite part of the song is 2:15 to 3:00. I feel like the instrumental and vocals really line up will here. After I finished I realized this assignment was fun. I enjoyed the challenge of finding 2 songs to sound good together.
