Sound Effects Story
“Tell a story using nothing but sound effects. There can be no verbal communication, only sound effects. Use at least five different sounds that you find online. The story can be no longer than 90 seconds. Another example (by a UMW student): http://ds106.us/wp-content/audio/audio_story.mp3”
For the sound effects assignment, i created an audio mp3 that tells listeners a story. It is a story about my hobby. I was the in the bar playing billiard, this is when it came to me that i should record the audio for myself playing billiard. Matter of fact, i also became curious to learn how it sounds when i’m playing at the bar, and i wanted to hear that what kind of story it is from a listeners perspective? As i was recording this audio clip, there was a song playing in the back by Jason Derulo called ” Want To Want Me”. Also listeners can hear the sound of billiard balls hitting and beating each other. In the above audio clip, the kind of music’s sound mix with the billiard’s sound can allow any listener to conclude that the setting of this story took place in a bar.
To do this assignment, I downloaded the sound cloud app on my smartphone. I already have an existing sound cloud account; therefore, i was able to login with the same account. Once i was logged in, i press the record option to start recording the audio, next i press the stop recording button to finish recording. Next, I choose the desire options to save my recording to the Sound Cloud account. For my final step, I copy the embedded code for the audio clip, and pasted inside this blog.
