Does Audio Really Matter? #AudioReflection #DS106

Hello friends! Welcome to week five of my digital storytelling class, this week we are focusing on audio. So we’re talking about the importance of sound to storytelling in this post. Have you ever been on Hulu and tried to watch a show but the audio was lagging? You can still hear what the characters are saying but it doesn’t match up to what they are doing in that show at the moment that it’s happening. For some reason that really bothers me if I am watching something that I care about. This answers the question of how important audio can be? Sure, at one point in time silent movies were a thing but we are spoiled with sound now. Personally, I want to be able to hear what I am watching. Audio can really add to a story, sound helps us communicate the story with more detail than if a character in the story made a movement. Sound can change your mood or the atmosphere to something. If you have been in a movie theatre watching a scary movie you know something is about to happen because you can hear the creepy music. Sound adds fear to the movie before anything has happened yet, that is pretty powerful. Down below I am going to link Abumrad’s YouTube video where he mentions how he uses sound. He said that he takes a person’s pronunciation and will spread out that sound which then creates a whole new sound. There are a lot of ways to use audio to create an experience for the listener. You can create an atmosphere, and make the listener feel like they are in the story that you are telling. So to answer the question, yes audio is an important part of digital storytelling.
