    Mystery Music

    by

    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

    by

    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.

    To accomplish this, I first downloaded sound effects off of the website, Freesound.  This website is filled with user-generated sound effects …

    My Sick Beat

    I used GarageBand to mix all of the sounds together to make a “Sick Beat.” Feel free to click on my tutorial video to see how I put this all together.

    Listening to this was absolute fantastic! Already, I really enjoy to listen narrations and stories from storytellers on YouTube who read from Reddit about people’s true or not so true encounters with the supernatural or terrible people. However, I can say with great confidence that this was many steps above …

    Tongue Twisting

    by

    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 …

    mixing it up

    by

    Everyone loves a good playlist. One way I like to keep track of memories and time, is by making playlists for the time. I have playlists for different summers, moods, places, all the songs I was listening to at the time.

    A mixtape is similar to a playlist in the …

    a real fake moon landing

    by

    Space has always freaked me out. I think about how pretty the stars look, and next thing I know I’m going through an existential crisis. It’s just SO big. I can’t wrap my head around how infinite space is, and how small we are.

    Long story short, I’m scared of …

    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

    by

    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 …
