Good Morning ds106 Radio

2 Stars I decided to change this assingment slightly so I could use it for our radio project. I used Bensound for my background noise and I used SoundBites for my alarm and rooster sounds. I’m really happy with how this turned out! Its a pretty uplifting intro/bumber. I originally wasn’t going to include the…

Tainted Love Batter Mix

3.5 Stars For this assignment I took the original Tainted Love by Gloria Jones and the cover by Soft Cell and mixed them together. Before this assignment I didn’t know that Soft Cell’s Tainted Love was a cover! For this sound, I reduced the speed of Gloria’s version and sped up the Soft Cell version…

MWC Ad

4.5 Stars I decided to use this assignment to help me in my group radio project. I decided that an add for the college would be cool to bring back as we discuss 80’s music and culture. I tried to learn more information about Mary Washington College during the 80’s, but I couldn’t find a…

Sounds of My Life

3 Stars For this assingment I had to record sound that I hear in my life on a regular basis. The first sound is my apartment door opening and hearing my roommate watching TV. The second sound is pages flipping in textbook and novels I have to read for my classes. The third sound is…

Fox and the Hound

4 Stars This assignment was much harder than I was anticipating. It was very hard not using dialogue move a story along. I ended up using a serene forest sound as my breakup in between scenes. The weird noise that is repeated several times is a fox noise. I was disappointed I couldn’t find a…

We Are the World

3 Stars We Are the World is one of my favorite songs from the 80’s. I love getting to see all the artists together making something beautiful. And it was really cool when they redid the song when I was in middle school. This assignment was harder than I thought. I tried following the assignment…

Tongue Twister

3 Stars I again used Bensound for the background music in this track. I originally had me saying “She sells sea shells by the sea shore” in a sort of flat, monotone way, but as I started listening and playing to the track, I realized that I could change my voice to go along with…

Radio Bumber

This assingment was fun to make! I followed Kollin’s advice and used Bensound‘s Royalty Free Music for my background music. At the beginning of this assignemnt, I had a hard time figuring out how to change my audio files from M4A to MP3 so that I could edit the tracks in Audacity. I ended up…
