    Can Anyone Hear Me?


    This week seemed like it wasn’t that much of a work load, so I was actually able to get the majority of the work done early in the week. The first assignment I focused on was the Character Choice and Introduction. My character’s back story revolved around the void that …

    I Can’t Feel My Legs…


    I think that the creators chose audio as the medium because it gives the audience a greater sense of context to what is going on in the message. The way someone projects their voice through the audio messages tells you whats going on. The crowd-sourced audio does a great job …

    Weekly Blog Assignment: Week 5


    I think I keep saying it every week, but I don’t know how anything can beat a week dedicated to audio. I absolutely love radio!! It is what gets me through my day! I haven’t always been this way but more recently I have come to a great appreciation of …

    E.T. Phone Home


    In this audio assignment worth a whopping 5 stars, I created a phone call from the perspective of a character in Philip K. Dick’s short story, The Defenders. This assignment was the perfect one for doing what we were assigned to this week: weave in something that has to do …

    Like a Professional


    The week has passed through rather quick. I feel that I have blinked and its already Monday. I had fairly good week, nothing too trouble happened, so guess that played some contribution into why I am feeling this way. And also the assignment nothing was too hard for me to …

    Radio head


    I found Frequency 2156 to be cool, but frustrating. I loved the layout and every part of the website was meant to entice you into its world where apocalypse is currently happening. It made you feel and imagine an apocalyptic world by having the layout resemble a World War theme. …

    The Fifth Closing



    This week had been a bit of a struggle for me, but I also feel like I learned a lot this week. I had never done anything with audio before, so I hadn’t been looking forward to doing this part. However, I ended up having fun figuring out how to …

    Frequency 22401


    Hello all!! Here we are, deep into the sixth week of school and almost to Spring Break!

    To be very honest I found this week really challenging. I had a hard time figuring out all of the technology and on top of all of that, I had a lot of …

    Rise and Shine Audio Adventure


    We all have our particular sounds of the morning, afternoon, and night. The bang of a door or squeaky board in the floor may be familiar to us but jarring to others. In this audio assignment, I explored that blurry line of familiarity and alienness by recording sounds around me …

    S.O.S.: Save Our Sounds


    Frequency 2156 is an awesome sight that collects different audio posts from all over the world and compiles them into one gigantic audio narrative. The idea is that the apocalypse has come and people worldwide are attempting to reach out and communicate with someone, anyone. Some of the posts I …

    Reading and Reflection Post


    I learned a fair amount from the two videos and the different articles. I had heard about Audacity before, but I had never used it. I am definitely learning a whole lot this time around. I feel still feel fairly uncomfortable navigating around audacity. I tried to use it for …

  12. @Mburke4UMW



    This week though it seemed like a lot of work each assignment didn’t take that much time, just a little thought went behind it. The hardest part was the character assignment, I felt I really struggled with that just because it is so important to the rest of the year. …

    Week (I’m Out Of Apocalyptic Puns) Five

    Week Five

    This was a very challenging week for me. I had several other demands outside of this class including papers, portfolios, and performances that kept me from doing my work like I would like to. Through all of that chaos, I missed my Daily Create assignments! They are always …

    Frequency 2156


    I think this is a really cool thing. I spent a good chunk of time looking and listening to different posts from all over. I tuned into their broadcast for a little bit and tried to catch different sound bites. I think that these creators chose this medium because it …

    Audio story telling this week was interesting. In retrospect, I feel like audio storytelling has been my least favorite as I do not care to hear myself on camera or …

    Lets Talk About ME


    Specifically, I am feeling very full. I just got back from a fabulous dinner at Logan’s and it was great quality food. I wish that I hadn’t gone out to eat however, and stayed in and studied more for my exam I have tomorrow afternoon. I saved doing my weekly …

    Week Five


    I survived week 5… woo! And 11 more days until spring break!!!! aka my 21st birthday!!!!!
    This week I managed my time much better than the past. I told myself to space out these assignments so that I’m not stressing myself out by cramming. I did one assignment each day …

    Reading and Resource Reflection


    I really enjoyed Jad Abumrad’s videos on audio storytelling. Like he said, I didn’t like audio storytelling at first. He explained that it lacked, but it was what it lacked in that made it so great. While it’s not like a movie where you can watch what is happening, audio …

    Frequency 2156


    I love this whole platform, even though it sort of freaked me out. The fact that it is only audio, only makes it that much creepier. It leaves a lot to the imagination. In my contribution my radio post was asking for help. The members of my group had …

    A Day In The Life Of Your Character


    For this assignment, I got a little lost, but maybe ended up found again? I was trying to create an audio recording of the character I created for one of this week’s assignments. I wanted it to be the one I took from the archetype bank because I had already …

    Week Five: Audio Storytelling

    Create Yourself Anew

    Out of the choices that I got to choose, creating social media posts was the best option because the amount of background on Robert Neville was not much. All that I knew was it was set in Los Angeles in 1976. I really wanted to create a …

    The End of Week Five!


    As week five comes to a close I find myself feeling accomplished. Going into this week I was nervous because I had no experience with audio prior to this week. I knew about Soundcloud but never used it and I never heard of Audacity. I was thankful to see there …

    Frequency 2156


    Browsing the Frequency2156 was very interesting. It was fun clicking on random radio stations people added. I really like the way it connects us even from people in different states and countries that our dealing with The End too. I liked when people added sound effects to allow the audience …

    Audio Reflection


    “I’m painting something, but I’m not holding the paint brush. You are.” Jad Abumrad said when talking about how someone else’s voice relates to your own imagination. I had never thought about it before, but it is true that when listening to the radio I can picture in my mind …
