    Harima’s Voice

However, after surfing around on sites like Royaltyfreemusic.com and Bensound.com, I came to a sudden realization that the perfect piece of music that would be my the Japanese composer Toshio Masuda. He had composed music …

    For one of my Audio Assignments this week, I decided to record and upload my own sound to Freesound, a free sound sharing platform.  The assignment said to pick a sound that I thought was lacking from the website.  I was inspired by my dad making us dinner.  I …

    Mystery Music


    I absolutely love music, so this assignment was right up my alley.  The idea of simplifying your favorite song to just the instrumental version is such a cool concept.  By taking away the vocals of the song, I heard different parts in the instrumental version that I never caught in …

    A Knight’s Tale


    The assignment, Sound Effects Story, was one of my favorites for this week. It was so fun to create a whole story without any dialogue or visuals.

    Tongue Twisting


    Disclaimer: I cannot say tongue twisters to save my life. Try as I might, I can never say them fast enough for satisfaction. I can’t sell seashells by the seashore. Peter Piper can’t pick a peck of pickled peppers. It just doesn’t work.

    So for the Tongue Twister assignment, I …
