    Story by Sounds, Listen Closely


    This assignment was much more fun after breaking through the anxiety wall of recording myself in the previous assignment. I made a story with audio only, different sounds to be exact. It’s pretty simple, comment with your idea of what the story tells you below.…

    Radio Mic Check, Bump


    I will have to start by saying going into Unit 4 of DS106 was a little nerve-wracking. What’s funny about it is that I work in a call center, I know what my own voice sounds like and am familiar with being recorded. But this, this, in the end, was …

    Radio Show Critique


    The Myths, Legends, & Character Conversation radio show was very intriguing. A lot of the characters were new to me. The first three characters Gallapher, Maria Segreti, and La Señora Luz all had background music which I had given no thought to. It was really inspiring to hear how much …

    Because there were no assignments this week, Fall Break was very relaxed for …

    This week we had some trouble making each person’s audio tracks (bumpers, commercials, and radio clips) downloadable. Thankfully Zae found instructions on how to make them shareable so we all had to go back in an edit our SoundCloud settings.

    We had set the goal of finishing our individual work …

    We have come together to agree on the subject matter of our radio show, a newscast site that features all the stories of multiple universes. We …

    Call Me, Beep Me


    For this assignment I chose to be Phoebe from Friends, and call Rachel and Monica to tell them to cancel their house party. I wanted to emphasize the events that happened to her throughout the day so I used free sound.org to get sounds of her walking through a graveyard, …

While walking in the street the footsteps encounter a car crash. This crash then leads to several sirens and …

    Audio Time


    What a start to the week. We hit it off with learning about audio, which was similar to learning about design, creating emotion and connections with the audience. Listening to Jad Abumrad and reading tips for audio editing was very enjoyable and engaging. I had a page understanding that a …

Our first assignment was listening to two short videos from Jad Abumrad explaining some of his experiences with radio and digital storytelling. Abumrad brings up thought-provoking points about how people interact with digital storytelling. To see these videos and read a …

    Moon Graffiti Reflection



    While listening to this audio story there were several factors that increased the realistic aspects of the story as well as creating heightened emotions. During this podcast there was a lot of description of what the scenes would have looked like. This ties into the idea of co-imagining that …

    Audio Resources


    Coming into this class, my only experience with audio is layering it on a movie in iMovie. Jad Abumrad talks about how the radio takes you in a different state of mind and paints images in the listeners’ minds. The radio connections people with co-imagining by putting certain images in …

    Reading & Resource Reflection



    During this video, the speaker Abumrad mentions that radio has said to have died over 50 times however, it has not died yet. Abumrad attributes the life of radio to the theory of “co-imagining”. Co-imagining is when someone speaks but not visuals are shown, similar to what the radio …

    I Wool-dn’t Say This Week Was Bad


    I’m glad I got to appreciate my novel of choice, Wool, this week. My favorite creation this week was making a theme song for the book, which you can see below! Fan fiction is interesting – I didn’t choose any writing activities because I felt this is the stereotypical route …
