Other Audio Assignments

Posted by

For my last two audio assignments I decided to do “Autotune Something” and “Make ‘em Laugh”. For my “Autotune Something” I decided to try and autotune a segment of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr’s “I Have A Dream Speech”. I hope this isn’t frowned upon by most people since this speech was such an influential part in the civil rights movement and is still a big part of American society today. I just thought it would be interesting to see what it would turn out like, and I think it sounds pretty cool. I autotuned it using garageband and I got the original speech off of archive.org. For the other assignment entitled make them laugh, I looked up a joke about American tourists and had one of my friends read it for me in Spanish. I got the joke off of jokesaboutamericans.com and the original joke is

“How many American tourists does it take to change a light bulb?

Fifteen. Five to figure out how much the bulb costs in the local currency, four to comment on “how funny-looking” local lightbulbs are, three to hire a local person to change the bulb, two to take pictures, and one to buy postcards in case the pictures don’t come out.”

Hope you guys enjoy them!

PS. I still need a group for the ds106 Radio Show assignment so if anyone else needs a second or a third person for their group I’d be glad to join!
