A Day In The Life #AudioAssignments #AudioAssignments70 #DS106

Hi friends! I had one more assignment bank to share! This assignment was called the “Sound Effects Story,” and in this assignment we were prompted to create a story with only sound effects. I used freesound.org which I have previously linked here on the blog. I decided to follow my day today with noises that I heard. I start my day with sunshine and bird chirping sounds, then I started driving. I made a stop at the mall which you hear from the ATM noises. Then you hear the end of the day with crickets chirping, even though it was raining tonight I was burning a candle that reminds me of summer and that is why I included that sound. Even though I used Audacity which made this project easier, I still had trouble with it. In my perfect world I would have liked to split the sounds up more clearly but I was unable to figure that out. However, I did enjoy making a story out of just sounds and I do see where audio can play a big role in a story. I think that it is more important than a visual, just listening to my day I feel that I can create a story out of it. The process of putting it together was not hard, I downloaded my sounds and then imported them to Audacity. Once I had them all in my app I tried to break them up but I fell short of doing so, when I played it back I felt they all played nicely together and still felt there was a nice story there. You hear the morning, me eating, you can hear that I am driving and shopping, and then driving and shopping again, and then the crickets come on signaling that I am going to bed. Once I had finished my story I exported the file as an MP3 and then imported that to SoundCloud. I hope that you all enjoy!
