For this assignment I had to make a 30 second audio of a song and takes out the lyrics. I downloaded the song instrumental and put it on audacity. I cut the song to around 30 seconds so you can not listen to all of it to make it more challenging to guess. Good luck trying to figure it out!
For this assignment I had to make a mash-up of sounds and make something scary. Using freesound I imported all my sounds and I would say I did a pretty good job. Making this mash-up I learned how to move audio from a place to another place so I can get my audio in the perfect spot. This was a big help in creating and it will help for future assignments as well.
This is a tale on tapestry of Ol Mick after he started to drink alcohol.
Ol Mick used to be a brave warrior and he would never fail to find the culprit of the crime. This was until he he regularly visited bars and started to get drunk every night. He had fun for a little bit while he could still control when he got drunk until he stopped being able to control it. Then he started to mess up at work and would fail getting the culprit. This put him into a state of depression which one day he hopes to get out of.
This assignment really tested my creativity. I took a while trying to come up with a combination of restaurants that would be humorous but couldn’t find two logos that had to do with the same food and looked like they could actually be together. That was until I was searching through Google images of Taco Bell and came across DelTaco. I cropped out the bottom of the Taco Bell logo and the top of the DelTaco logo to create a merger of the two.
For this assignment I had to create a book cover that was noir. I decided to make one about my character Ol Mick who is an alcoholic detective. I tried to make the cover as noir as possible with the black and white, the suit, and the suspenseful facial expression. I imagine that in the book Ol Mick has a case that he messes up because he was drunk then the rest of the book he is trying to avoid alcohol and fix it.
In this assignment I had to create my own valentines day card. I decided to get creative and put my own face in it because quite frankly who can resist me? This design has mostly warm colors that represent valentines day with the words “I love You a Latte” as the main attraction. Designing this was pretty easy with word because I know how to wrap text in front of pictures.
This radio bumper assignment was a great way for me to get used to audacity. I really enjoyed making this and getting creative with the combination of Kayne West and my voice on what could be an intro to a radio station.
I enjoyed doing this assignment because I thought my day was pretty interesting. First I woke up and took a shower, then ate a little food, played some baseball, cooked some popcorn, and I had trouble with the last one because it was me laughing at a movie but I figured it would suffice to just say that here.
This assignment was also a bit tricky haha. I’m not the best whistler in the world but I believe you can still tell what song this is. When I was doing this assignment I definitely started to get more used to audacity. I knew exactly what to do when I was recording and I exported it quickly. (and just a hint to what the song is, it is by a band that rhymes with mascal patts) hopefully that doesn’t give it away.
This assignment was very challenging. I had a very hard time trying to figure out how to mesh my sounds up nicely but I finally got it to work. This story is Ol Mick is fighting bad guys with loud machine guns and explosions and then finally it ends. After the fight he goes to a bar where he gets wasted. At the bar he picks the wrong girl to flirt with and gets slapped hard. Out of embarrassment he goes home and starts to cry.
