Hey everyone! So I chose to create a radio bumper, a commercial and a mixtape for this week’s audio assignments. Both the bumper and commercial were created through Audacity. I used music from Youtube’s Free Sound and I wrote the script for what I said in each audio on a Google Doc, practiced what I wanted to say a few times and then read off that script as I recorded (I’m still not happy with how my voice sounds in these but oh well, I don’t think I’ll ever be satisfied with how my voice sounds on audio!). I decided to create a Spotify playlist because I love creating playlists and finding new music. The music I chose ranges from artists that are popular today such as Billie Eillish, to artists that were more popular a while back, such as Elvis, so it’s an hour-long playlist with a wide range of songs. Most of the songs talk about crime or are generally “darker” themed songs. I think my favorite ones on this playlist are: “Jailhouse Rock”, “Bellyache” and “I Fought the Law”. I hope you guys enjoy what I found! Here’s the link to the playlist if you want to check it out. Also, free feel to check out my personal playlists as well. I know that I’m always looking for new music […]
Two of my favorite things to relax to are the sound of the piano, and the sound of rain. If I’m stressed out before bed, I usually put on some rain sounds or piano sounds, so for this assignment I decided to combine the two and created a little track that would soothe me (I’m actually listening to it as I type up this post!). The piano is so beautiful, whoever wrote it, I wish I could just thank them. I hope you enjoy this as much as I do!
For this assignment, I took a little twist on it. I decided to honor the theme of Valentine’s Day as well as out 80’s class theme, and pull a monologue from one of my favorite movies! I added some background music from Youtube Free Music that I think fit the script. Also, I apologize for my sickly voice. I tried so hard to get through reading this without coughing my lungs out 🙁 P.S. – if you’ve watched Grey’s Anatomy and are in love with McDreamy like I am but haven’t seen this movie yet, you need to watch it! Patrick Dempsey has been amazing since his teen years.
I feel like it’s pretty obvious what movie this is from the jump, but let me know if you guessed it! This assignment was pretty fun to do, it just took a while to get all the audio clips I wanted for it. That was probably the most time consuming thing. I used Free Sounds and Youtube Free Music!
For this assignment, I decided to create my vision of a perfect 80’s summer day! I tried to include sounds that were oldish sounding (for example, the car and the Polaroid click at the end), in order to keep it with our theme. Hope you enjoy it! P.S. — MANY Youtube videos were needed for this!
