    Chrome Music Labs


    I used the Song Maker application on Chrome Music Lab to create a tune that would be inside of a Nintendo videogame. I was inspired by my urge back in the early pandemic days to have my old 3DS back to play with (it was sadly traded in into a …

    Remake That Genre


    Many artists find joy in taking a song and adding their own musical twist to it. They give a reggae flair to pop songs. A Latin twist on classical music. A Rock and Roll surprise on rap. So on and so forth.

    Sofia Karlberg is a Swedish singer and songwriter who …

    The first task was to show a miracle. My dog walking around with a blanket on him for ten minutes is truly a miracle.

    Design Reflection


    Everything that is not made by nature is designed by someone.

    It sounds obvious. Of course, everything is designed by someone. Someone had to have the idea for the item. Someone had to design the item. Someone had to make it. But when you really think about it, the sheer …

    My Wedding Invitation


    I have no real desire to get married. Even if I do get married one day, I have absolutely no desire to plan a wedding. My plan is to get eloped in a courthouse, have a nice meal after, and then go on a lavish honeymoon. That being said, I …

    Motivational Poster


    If you have been following my blog over the past month, you will have noticed that I love being sarcastic and snarky. I personally think that most motivational pictures are cringy, cheesy, and embarrassing to look at.

    When challenged to create a motivational poster, I immediately thought to create one …

    My Dream Tattoo… That I Will Never Get


    As much as I love the aesthetics of tattoos, I could never get one myself. Between my low pain tolerance and my indecisiveness, I could never get something permanent on my body. I would also end up buried in my parent’s backyard. But still, it’s fun to dream.

    DS106 Radio Show Bumper


    For my radio show bumper, I went for a vibe that has been living rent-free in my head since the start of the semester: Lofi. Lofi, or Lo-Fi, is music that is “low-fidelity” and has low sound quality. It is often referred to as music that contains audio imperfections that …

    DS106 Radio Show Experience


    Let me start off by saying that as someone with ADD (Attention Deficiency Disorder), I struggle with focusing solely on audio. I could not, and still can not, comprehend concepts, ideas, and instructions that were presented in purely audible forms. It is why professors who use visual aids in lectures …

    Before the Viking Battle

    Spooky Season


    I love horror movies. The creepier and gorier, the better. I also love a good monster. So, why not combine the two together into an audio horror story?

    Create a Place: Coffee Shop


    The prompt: create a space using only sound.

    The most comfortable and relaxing place in the world is a coffee shop. The ambiance is perfect for work, reading, and meeting with friends. Not to mention, the amazing coffee and pastries.

    Honest Game Cover: Wii Sports

    Dear five-year-old me,
