    Weekly Summary: Week 7

    by

    It’s been a crazy week this week! As usual, I’ve been swamped my work from this class and so many others. This semester is far more cramped than any I’ve had previously and it’s going slower as a result… but I’ve made it to week 7 now! As usual, here’s …

    A Splash of Design for DS106 Radio News

    by

    This week we were tasked to do a bit of design work while we’re planning our radio shows, with so much audio editing. This time, we got to return to design week, which was my personal favorite week thus far.

    Here, I created a logo for our radio show, which …

    Economies of Love

    by

    We often drain our wallets on enormous quantities of alcohol and junk food. The next day, when we fall sick or get a bad hangover, what do we attribute it to? Do we curse the dollar spent or the unhealthy alcohol and food consumed?

    Similarly, when a friend drifts apart …

    Weekly Summary – Week 7

    by

    The start of radio shows begins! Not to rain on anyone’s parade, but I am really not a fan of Audio Assignments. They are just not my forte. But, what must be done will be done, so I did it. I definitely did more than 10 stars worth of Audio …

    Week Seven Reflection

    by

    Week seven already!

    This week was more of a collaborative group week, which was great!

    My group, group 3, better known now as “The Legends”, landed on what we’re going to do next week for our radio show. We’re going to talk a lot about our characters in a sort …

    Radio Show Progress

    by

    When looking for a group, I really didn’t care who I was with, as long as they were hard working and got their stuff in on time. I am in an all girls group and we named our show “Myths, Legends, and Character Conversations”. It definitely fits the theme of …

    My Halloween Sound

    by

    For this assignment I created a spooky/scary beat or song, however you want to describe it. For this I used some at home recordings as well as some audio clips from freesound.org and plugged them into audacity where I edited and trimmed the files into one whole recording. The process …

    Radio Show Ideas

    by

    This week, primarily today and yesterday because of midterms, my group talked about what we were going to do for our radio show. We landed on a couple of ideas, but I think we’re sticking with a sort of support group for all of our characters who talk about themselves …

    Radio show bumper!

    by

    So this assignment (Which I believe we have had to do before, but wasn’t 100% sure) asked for us to create a bumper for DS106 radio, BUT I changed it up a little and made a bumper for my group’s radio show, Myths, Legends, and Character Conversations. It’s going to …

    A Sick Beat for Radio

    by

    For this assignment I was tasked with creating a “sick beat”.  For this I wanted to tie it to my radio program project so I created a intro type song for our upcoming radio show. I used audacity and freesound.org to create and mash together audio to produce this medieval …

    Tounge Twisters!

    by

    Tounge twisters can be so hard! I think there are certain ones that are definitely easier, but if you try to do all of them as fast as possible, you will get tripped up for sure. I wanted to make sure I did a few because they are all relatively …

    Radio Show Promo

    by

    I really love this. I realized how much I like putting Irri in random places last week when I put him in space, and I think it’s becoming a personality trait of his, sort of just appearing places. The Legends is our group name and more information on what we’ll …

    We will, we will….ROCK YOU!

    by

    This is one of my favorite classics, so it was really cool to be able to recrate the beat in our own way. I used Audacity to record myself recreating the beat. I used my keys, a bottle of lotion, and a cup all banged against a table to recreate …

    We Will Rock

    by

    http://assignments.ds106.us/assignments/we-will-rock/

    This assignment was a quick fun one. Because I’m a giant loser, I have a watch that on the hour makes the same sound as the clock tower from Majora’s Mask. I recorded the playback of the watch, and took the chimes to create the sort of hard, dark …

    “Sick Beat”

    by

    http://assignments.ds106.us/assignments/sick-beat/

    This “sick beat” was created with me recording the storm last night, converting it to midi, and making a beat with with sticks from the limb that fell on my car! I thought that was funny enough to create this with. I audio to midi’d the beat I made …

    Week 7 Daily Creates

    by

    This weeks daily creates involved creating memes, photo shopping images and looking at some of the worst jobs imaginable. The process of creating and producing these creates this week was fairly simple and quick. Unlike last weeks creates I found these to be a little less design based and more …

    Mixing Soundtracks

    by

    http://assignments.ds106.us/assignments/mixing-soundtracks/

    The directions of this assignment were vague, but I like what I did with them. I found three songs from the Spirited Away soundtrack that I thought went well together, and fed them into each other. They aren’t exactly all just playing at the same time, they’ve been tempo …

    Sounds of…my home?!

    by

    This assignment said to record sounds around your city, job, etc,. but I thought my house worked pretty well. It’s NEVER quiet. EVER. This is about 11 seconds of what its like just sitting at my kitchen table at home. TV on pretty loud, dog barking outside, sister talking to …

    Autotune Something

    by

    http://assignments.ds106.us/assignments/autotune-something/

    This was just a really silly exercise for me. I started by autotuning me talking to my dog but I didn’t get the harmonics that I wanted out of it, so I switched over to a song from the Animal Crossing soundtrack. Just using a pitch shifter, I took …

    Audio Rewind

    by

    This week was definitely an interesting one… It was different than all of the other weeks have been. I think it encompassed some of the challenges of an online class, at least for me. In both of the online classes I have had, we have had group projects. I think …

    Radio Show Logo

    by

    In the creative process of designing and producing a radio show there needs to be emphasis on marketing and image. Whenever you think or discuss shows, be it television or radio, most individuals think or correspond the name with the shows logo or brand mark. For instance Nike, whenever I …

    Radio Show Review

    by

    This was the hardest part of the course for me so far. I am not a huge fan of group work in general, but it is much harder for an online class than an in-person class. Also, our group is a decent size, so it is particularly hard to coordinate …

    Weekly Summary Week 7

    Moving right along in the semester!

    This week I think that my audio assignments went really well. The first one that I did was assignment 2366. This was an assignment I made, and also my first tutorial. I made it because I was getting super annoyed with the selection of …

    This week was actually fun to do!! We got to spend a lot of time planning and figuring out what our radio show will be. I enjoyed it because I got to work with other people, people that I’ve been commenting and replying on on Twitter and the blogs.

    But …

    Progress of our show!

    by

    As this is week one of working on the radio show, my group and I have thought about a lot. Zae was the one who asked the group of us if we would be in a group. I was very thankful for that because I didn’t have a group really …

    Radio Show Bumper!

    by

    When considering what I should make the bumper sticker for our radio show, I was thinking about our topic. Our radio show is going to be all about our characters and the stories they tell. Of course I needed to add in a story book in some way. But I …
