Want to Attract a Sylvia?

2 Stars

For my last audio assignment for this week, I decided to do the bird call assignment where you make an audio clip to attract a certain person. I decided that my certain person that I am trying to attract should be my character dossier Sylvia! The sounds I chose for this assignment was a cat call, bar scene/party sound in the background, pouring of an alcoholic beverage (PSA – don’t listen to this if you have to go to the bathroom!), and clinking of glasses, p.s. I found all of these through freesound. I used Audacity to compile the sounds together and overlap them on top of the bar scene sound, much of this was simple copying and pasting the sounds together and adjusting sound volumes so you could hear the sounds I wanted to emphasize.  Since my character enjoys the party and social scene I thought this would be a good decoy to attract her!

Dory & Me

4 Stars

I decided to challenge myself and go for another 4 star assignment for this week. I did the SoundBoard conversation assignment. Before I go off into detail about what I did for this assignment, I would first like to ask where the heck SoundBoard has been all my life?! I love all the sound effect options and I’m wondering how I overlooked it for so long… Anywaysssss, down to business.

Basically, I went on to SoundBoard and just randomly search through the movie sound clips they had and then I got a random idea that I could have a conversation with Dory from FINDING NEMO! I chose this one because that is like my favorite movie ever, and two because I feel like Dory and I relate on many levels.. Scary, I know. So I found a few clips that I like the best (particularly the “do ya, DO YA?!” one and compiled them together in audacity with me responding to her! Hope you enjoy! :)

Mashup Madness

3 1/2 Stars

For one of my assignments this week I decided to do the Music Mash-up which was super difficult. Not only was it difficult to have to mash the songs together but it was really hard to find songs that sound similar and wasn’t super choppy to have to mash together. For mine I did You Da One by Rihanna and True Love by P!nk, I thought they had pretty similar concepts behind them even though they sound pretty different. Considering this was my first time “mashing” some music, I didn’t think I failed too horribly! :)
