Commercial

I did this 3 Star Project for the radio show.  It was fun.  It was my first attempt at a commercial and I think it came out good.  A little corney but it was fun.  My husband and I did the audio part and I put it together using audacity  and I used an ad I created during design week to decorate it.  I downloaded the sounds from freesound.com even the guitar.  I hope it makes you want a Grape Nehi.

So and So’s Greatest Hits- Not so Great Assignment-Emotions in Sound

I did this 3 star audio assignment because I really like “The Barenaked Ladies” and I wanted to share them with the class.  They are an amazing band and I wanted to prove that the theme song from the the “Big Bang Theory” is not their best work.  I took my CD and turned it into WAV files and used Audacity to edit it.  I had a hard time picking just 5 songs.  This was a fun project.

Ok, that didn’t work it was pulled down immediately from SoundCloud because of Copyright infringement.   I will have to figure out another assignment to do.

I found another 3 star assignment and did it.  I did emotions thru sound.  I used the sound of someone blowing up a balloon, it popping, the surprise from that, a giggle and a sigh.

Soundboard Conversation

This is the Soundboard Conversation assignment for 4 Stars.  It was hard, I know the 4 pointers are supposed to be hard but this took me several hours.  I started off trying to get on to Soundboard, it would not accept any of my addresses, but finally I got it to sign on using Facebook.  I picked the Breakfast Club because I love that movie.  I picked 6 quotes to use and downloaded them.  I put them into Audacity and started the process of making it work.  I had to download my audio separately and upload it to Audacity and it worked great.  I wanted to put the song, “Don’t You Forget About Me” in the background to try to make it more obvious which movie I was taking quotes from.  I ended up purchasing it on Amazon.com and I couldn’t get that to work.  I asked my son (26 years old) and he had it in an email to me in 3 minutes.  I am just not as tech savvy as I would like to be.   I put the audio together to my liking and uploaded it to SoundCloud.   I’m happy with how it turned out.
